A major DC law firm with deep Clinton and Democratic ties has been representing Jackie Coakley for free, GotNews.com has learned.
The revelation confirms that the efforts to push the Jackie Coakley was raped narrative by Rolling Stone were part of a wider push to push a denial of male student due process rights.
What has been most unusual has been the presence of Jonathan Missner, a managing partner at Stein Mitchell Cipollone Beato & Missner LLP.
One of its other founding partners — Jacob A Stein — represented Monica Lewinsky and Nixon campaign attorney Kenneth Parkinson of Watergate fame, according to the Washington Post.
Here’s how Missner describes himself and his work on LinkedIn.
Mr. Missner helps guide clients who face high-impact legal and operational challenges. With his background leading businesses on a global platform, he works with clients on their most complex matters, including regulatory and policy issues, venture capital and emerging companies, growth, and corporate governance.
As Chair of the Corporate Strategy Group, Mr. Missner focuses his practice on evaluating litigation risks and benefits, controlling costs, advising growing businesses, and creating value-driven partnerships. As Chair of the Global Practices Group, Mr. Missner leads the firm’s effort to offer its services in more areas and markets around the world. He also advises clients who seek to grow and thrive in a global environment. Mr. Missner has a proven track record of maintaining and creating synergistic partnerships based on his worldwide relationships.
How did an ex-hair dresser afford those pricy services? She doesn’t, of course.
Missner was managing director for National Affairs of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and is an adjunct professor of law at Georgetown. Coakley is neither Jewish nor a student at Georgetown. So why is Missner helping her?
Missner’s firm has been very hostile to Dean Nicole Eramo, say Eramo’s counsel. The white shoe litigators have accused Eramo of picking on a sexual assault victim despite there being no sexual assault. Stein Mitchell even tried to get Eramo fired from her job at the University of Virginia and protested her attempts to get documentation exonerating her.
GotNews.com has learned that Coakley is on camera discussing the rape fraud she committed as part of the trial.
That video taped deposition is in a protective order — for now.
GotNews.com was the first to out Jackie Coakley and its editor was profiled in the Washington Post.
