Taitz to depose Nancy Pelosi & Dick Cheney


by John Charlton

(Sept. 21, 2009) — Last week Attorney Orly Taitz notified Attorney General DeJute of her intention to depose witnesses in Barnett et al. vs. Obama et al.

Among those named are Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and current Social Security Commisioner Michael J. Astrue.

In her  Sept. 15th letter to Attorney General David A. DeJute, Dr. Taitz suggested the timeline for these depositions:

Rules 30(b)(2) and 34(b)(2) both require 30 days notice.  30 days from the day of this Rule 26(f) Conference is Wednesday, October 14, 2009.  I am going to propose to you that I will make myself available (without any reservations, even to include weekends) in a four week block for depositions duces tecum for each of the named Defendants, plus two non-party witnesses (Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the Commissioner of Social Security), between Monday October 19, 2009 and Friday November 13, 2009.  Furthermore, I will make myself available to take these depositions in Washington, D.C., as well as (obviously) at my office in Rancho Santa Margarita, or at your (Mr. DeJute’s) the U.S. Attorneys’ Office in Los Angeles.  In short, we are willing to schedule these depositions at the Defendants’ request and convenience within a four week time span.

The contents of these depositions may not, however, be made public for sometime afterwards.

    I understand deposing Cheney and Pelosi, but why Astrue? His name may be as close to the truth as we get unless Judge Carter permits discovery.

    Was Dr. Taitz awarded “Expidited Discovery” by judge Carter? What document can I view – thanks

    And many deep thanks for all your work.

    I pray for your safety & success!

    Mr. Charlton replies: Not to my knowledge. See the reports at


    for what kind of discovery has and has not been granted.
