One the most basic rules of examining a witness is to never ask a question that you don’t already know the answer to. Senator Harris’ asking Judge Kavanaugh whether he had discussed the Mueller investigation with anyone from a law firm representing President Trump blew up in her face when she violated that rule. As the TKPOTD from four years ago today documented, Brett Kimberlin tripped over the same rule during the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. LOLsuit.

A good trial lawyer never asks a question of a witness unless he knows what the answer should be. A corollary of that is that a good trail lawyer will avoid asking certain questions because he knows what the answer should be. The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin repeatedly violated both those rules in his conduct of the trail in the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit.
This question may have been his most spectacular blunder. He asked it of Aaron Walker.
MR: KIMBERLIN: Okay, now when you call me a pedophile, you must have some basis for that, so I’m going to let you tell the jury why you — you know, why you think that’s true, and where is the truth? Where is the evidence?
Aaron responded at length with a detailed explanation of the evidence that led him to view TDPK as a pedophile. At the end of TDPK’s examination, it was our lawyer’s turn to ask questions.
THE COURT: — oh, do you have questions you want to ask him? No?
MR. OSTRONIC: No, your honor. I think Mr. Kimberlin asked every question I wanted.

It’s usually the case that asking the wrong question will result in getting a wrong answer, but The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin is so inept at litigation that he can ask stupid questions that make the other side’s case for them.
