Brett Kimberlin’s campaign of lawfare as a form of brass knuckles reputation management has proven to be an exception to the rule that all publicity is good publicity. The TKPOTD from two years ago today shows one example of why that is so.

After years of frivolous litigation involving multiple LOLsuits (I’ve been a defendant in four of ’em and a bogus peace order petition), The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s campaign of brass knuckles reputation management has been singularly unsuccessful. And now his name is back in the news because of his association with Cody Shearer, the creator of the anti-Trump “Dossier No. 2.”
J. E. Dyer writes about the Shearer/Kimberlin connection in a post over at Liberty Unyielding.
Shearer, besides being a major piece of work in general, played a key role during the George H.W. Bush years, and the first Clinton campaign for the 1992 election, in hyping Brett Kimberlin’s claim that he (Kimberlin) had sold pot to then-Vice President Dan Quayle, years before when Quayle was younger. Shearer had known Kimberlin for years, in other words, and used his (Shearer’s) journalistic pulpit to retail a politicized narrativeon Kimberlin’s behalf.
But although BuzzFeed and Daily Caller both cite unnamed sources affirming Kimberlin’s marginal role in the “Russia” narrative assembled separately in 2016 (again, Kimberlin denies it), what really completes the circle is Cody Shearer’s membership in the Shearer family, whose ties to the Clintons, including his own, could hardly be closer.
Read the whole thing. And also checkout this post over at The Weekly Standard.

The Washington Examiner now carries the post from the now-defunct Standard.
Kimberlin is a loser. His grandiose drug smuggling scheme failed. He got caught with his bomb making material. He music career dead-ended. He lost his LOLsuits. And he picked the wrong side in the 2016 election and collusion hoax.
