Appearing on the G. Gordon Liddy radio show today, the attorney for Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, the Birther Army doctor who is said to be facing a court martial for refusing orders, suggested that if his client is court-martialled, he will use discovery to try to further the Birther crusade.
Jensen said he expects an investigation of Lakin under Article 32 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice — which precedes a court martial — to begin as early as today or tomorrow.

Notes from my listening.
Courtesy of Dwight “ML” Sullivan, the lawyer is narrowed down to Paul Rolf Jensen. He does not appear to have any experience in military law or criminal law for that matter. While it may not matter, a military defense counsel will be assigned as co-counsel. Although I suppose it is always possible that the appointment will be refused on the basis that a TDS attorney is not properly appointed. (Oooops, where did we put those Weiss pleadings.)
Here is a link at which Mr. Jensen indicates clerking for former Chief Judge Everett at C.M.A.
In 1990, Jensen worked in the chambers of the Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces as a judicial research assistant to Chief Judge Robinson O. Everett.
