“Reconnected with God” or “Being a Phony”?
Featuring John M. Pierce of Pierce Bainbridge — Kyle Rittenhouse Fundraiser and Donald J. Trump Supporter
The lawyer for Kyle Rittenhouse, who was also hired by Rudy Giuliani, Tulsi Gabbard, Carter Page, Michael Avenatti and more, has been accused of being a “scam artist,” “phony,” and a “con man.” His name is John M. Pierce, he is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, as well as Harvard Law School, and is an unabashed fan of President Donald J. Trump. Pierce has even claimed China was involved in stealing the election or something of the sort. In any event, Pierce’s response to a recent Daily Mail article and subsequent conduct may shed light on the question posed in the title of this article.
To cut right to the chase, the Daily Mail detailed Pierce’s issues with drugs, booze, violence, threats to the mother of his children, domestic violence restraining orders, physical assault of a co-worker, a stint in a UCLA psychiatric facility, severe personal and professional financial issues and more.
Another article in Mother Jones, covers a young woman essentially accusing Pierce of spearheading witness intimidation related to the Rittenhouse case and also notes that a related complaint was filed with the California State Bar. And, there are the embattle attorney’s issues with “Belligerence & Misogyny.”
While Pierce, who has relied on “total fake news,” or even in one instance, “most of the reports are 97% fake news,” as a defense to his litany of transgressions, the Daily Mail article was so heavily-sourced this apparently was not an option.
Instead, Pierce claimed that he has purportedly “reconnected with God.” It is worthwhile to note that we are unaware of any public indications supporting this claim. We are, however, aware that several individuals immediately expressed skepticism.
In any event, John Pierce, who in 2016 spent time in a UCLA Psychiatric Hospital, and lamented “I cannot . . . handle society anymore,” recently had an interesting exchange on Twitter for an individual with the background who claims to have found religion.
The Pierce tweet on the right was in response to the two tweets on the left, the exchange speaks for itself.
So, we leave to you to decide.
Has John Mark Pierce “reconnected with God?”
Or is John Pierce being a phony?
Happy New Year.
Addendum. “When a lawyer connected to Trump drops a client due to ethical concerns. . .” Marc Mukasey, a lawyer tied to Trump, dropped Pierce Bainbridge as a client due to ethical concerns. How bad was it?
