The Brett Kimberlin Saga:

Follow this link to my BLOCKBUSTER STORY of how Brett Kimberlin, a convicted terrorist and perjurer, attempted to frame me for a crime, and then got me arrested for blogging when I exposed that misconduct to the world. That sounds like an incredible claim, but I provide primary documents and video evidence proving that he did this. And if you are moved by this story to provide a little help to myself and other victims of Mr. Kimberlin’s intimidation, such as Robert Stacy McCain, you can donate at the PayPal buttons on the right. And I thank everyone who has done so, and will do so.

BREAKING: Kimberlin Attempted, Failed to Have His Wife Involuntarily Committed

This is the latest post in what I half-jokingly call The Kimberlin Saga®.  If you are new to the story, that’s okay! Not everyone reads my blog.  The short version is that Kimberlin has been harassing me for over a year, his worst conduct being when he attempted to frame me for a crime.  I recognize that this might sound like an incredible claim, but I provide video and documentary evidence of that fact; in other words, you don’t have to believe my word.  You only have to believe your eyes.  So, if you are new to the story, go to this page and you’ll be able to catch up on what has been happening.

[Update: Please note that I have removed the first name of Ms. Kimberlin at her request and left only her first initial, “T.” She is, after all, a victim of sexual abuse and those kinds of reasonable requests will be honored.  While the moral right to privacy of rape victims is not absolute, it seems to be reasonably asserted here.]

I just got off the phone with Mr. Hoge, but it turns out we got a big thing wrong in our reportage yesterday (my piece here, Mr. Hoge’s here) about the arrest of Ms. Kimberlin.  I noted that he was arrested and incorrectly assumed it was based on criminal charges.  I noted at the time that it was strange because I couldn’t find any record of such charges.

Well, Mr. Hoge did some gumshoe reporting and discovered that in fact she wasn’t charged with a crime.  According to a source with knowledge of the matter, Brett Kimberlin attempted to have his wife involuntarily committed for a mental health evaluation.

Let me repeat this for emphasis.  A diagnosed sociopath with a history of violence and a body count, as well as a history of lying and framing people for crimes, had someone else committed.

This was surely under Md. Health-General Code §10-622 which allows temporary commitment for “emergency evaluation” if there is probable cause that the person is 1) mentally ill and 2) presents a danger to others.  Such evaluations, as I understand it, last seventy-two hours.  I said yesterday that all criminal charges filed by Brett Kimberlin are presumptively incorrect.  The same goes for this.

So let me repeat this for emphasis, again.  A diagnosed sociopath with a history of violence and a body count, said that someone else was 1) mentally ill and 2) presented a danger to others.  The mind boggles.

Yesterday I expressed my admiration for Judge Mitchell in the District Court of Montgomery County.  My admiration for her has increased considerably when I learned of this as well.  Apparently, we left too early.  The judge intervened and put a stop to this.  I am not certain of the details.  Is it possible that the judge held the hearing required under the statute before such petition would go forward?  Or did she find some other source of authority?  I am uncertain, but clearly the judge saw right through this and put a stop to it.  So three cheers for Judge Mitchell.

But I pose this question to you again: when will the Montgomery County State’s Attorney put a stop to this abuse of the process by Mr. Kimberlin?  It was bad enough when it was done to suppress freedom of speech, but now Kimberlin is using these tactics to try to force T. Kimberlin to come back to him.

If she goes back because she feels she loves him, that is one thing.  But he is trying to use fear—in significant part of fear of wrongful acts of the state—to extort her into coming back to him.  And that is wrong.

Incidentally, I see now Kimberlin is whining that we are “attacking his family.”  I cannot speak for everyone on the web but I have actually defended his family, even against Brett Kimberlin.  It is Kimberlin who is attacking his family, specifically his wife. 

And let's recall that he tried to have Mr. Hoge and I excluded from the hearing yesterday.  What precisely was he concerned about?  It can’t be that his children might be exposed to these salacious allegations because as I noted yesterday he discussed all of this, including reading off sexually explicit alleged text messages, in open court right in front of his teenage and pre-teen daughters.  No, plainly what he is really mad about is that he wanted to be able to attack Ms. Kimberlin without the world seeing.

Also it occurs to me, having slept on it, that it lends a dark purpose to bringing his wife to various hearings involving myself and Mr. Hoge.  Although I previously mistook her for an older daughter (she is much younger than him), she was present in the April 11, 2012 Circuit Court peace order hearing between myself and Brett Kimberlin, and also at the May 29, 2012 District Court peace order hearing between myself and Brett Kimberlin as well as other scattered hearings.  The really significant one was most likely the May 29, 2012 hearing where Kimberlin ambushed me by having me arrested on false charges (that were almost immediately dropped).

Having her there, at that hearing, puts things into a new light.  Originally, I assumed she was there for some kind of moral support.  Certainly Neal Rauhauser was there for that reason.  But consider this.  As I pointed out yesterday, T. said Brett Kimberlin previously had her arrested on false charges.  Then he takes her to a new hearing and has me arrested on false charges.  Could that hearing have been Kimberlin’s way of saying to her, “look at what I did to Mr. Walker.  If you cross me I will do the same to you”?

Really, I am starting to see T. Kimberlin as being identical to those three women recently rescued from Ariel Castro’s house of horrors, only T.’s bonds were invisible.

When I first published my blockbuster post discussing how Kimberlin had tried to frame me for a crime, I also offered a way for you to help.  Among those methods, I offered the following:

Second, you can write to the State’s Attorney of Montgomery County.  I have not named the subordinate in the State’s Attorney’s Office  responsible for the inaction, but ultimately it is the responsibility of John McCarthy, the State’s Attorney himself.  You might also consider writing to the Governor, or the Attorney General. Be polite.  You will not help me by being foul or insulting.  Simply state that you believe a grave injustice has been done to me—if you happen to agree—and ask them politely to see to it that justice be done.

This is his office’s contact information:
State’s Attorney for Montgomery County
50 Maryland Avenue, 5th Floor
Rockville, Maryland  20850

Brett Kimberlin has committed perjury in five different hearings that I have counted—blatant, easily prosecutable perjury.  The maximum sentence for each is ten years.  So he could easily be put back in prison for the rest of his natural life, if the State’s Attorney only prosecuted him.  I think Carl DeLong would approve.

I think now is the time for a renewed push to hold Kimberlin accountable.  I warned the State’s Attorney that (Brett) Kimberlin would be tempted to use the same tactics he used on me on others.  Evidently he had been using them all along on his own wife.  And in all bluntness, if T. Kimberlin is too afraid of her husband to stand up to him, I stand ready, willing and able to be the criminal complainant.  All the state has to do is prosecute.  It will be the easiest conviction they get all year.



I have accused some people, particularly Brett Kimberlin, of reprehensible conduct.  In some cases, the conduct is even criminal.  In all cases, the only justice I want is through the appropriate legal process—such as the criminal justice system.  I do not want to see vigilante violence against any person or any threat of such violence.  This kind of conduct is not only morally wrong, but it is counter-productive.

In the particular case of Brett Kimberlin, I do not want you to even contact him.  Do not call him.  Do not write him a letter.  Do not write him an email.  Do not text-message him.  Do not engage in any kind of directed communication.  I say this in part because under Maryland law, that can quickly become harassment and I don’t want that to happen to him.

And for that matter, don’t go on his property.  Don’t sneak around and try to photograph him.  Frankly try not to even be within his field of vision.  Your behavior could quickly cross the line into harassment in that way too (not to mention trespass and other concerns).

And do not contact his organizations, either.  And most of all, leave his family alone.

The only exception to all that is that if you are reporting on this, there is of course nothing wrong with contacting him for things like his official response to any stories you might report.  And even then if he tells you to stop contacting him, obey that request.  That this is a key element in making out a harassment claim under Maryland law—that a person asks you to stop and you refuse.

And let me say something else.  In my heart of hearts, I don’t believe that any person supporting me has done any of the above.  But if any of you have, stop it, and if you haven’t don’t start.


  1. Wow, sure wish we knew what Judge Mitchell saw or was told that caused her to act. Kimberlin's habit of gross overreach looks to be backfiring on him.

  2. What makes this guy so annoying is that he hides behind the law. (Well, the fact he is a convicted bomber and perjurer makes him pretty annoying, too.) Everything he does to harrass people or make their lives miserable these days is filtered through the courts. He could easily say "I was trying to help her..." and some folks would give him the benefit of the doubt.

    It's the accumulation of baseless lawfare, and the perjury to support the documentation in these cases which is the great offence. You're right to oppose and document his every action, but I doubt anybody except bloggers and blog readers would take the time to learn about his history of abusing the system.

    What gov't official cares about perjury in these kinds of cases? Don't DA's usually pay attention to perjury when the lie screws up a bigger criminal case?

  3. Curious why you continue to render the woman's name as "Tetyana" rather than "Tatiana" as it is spelled in some court filings from 1998 ( or the more commonly transliterated "Tatyana?" In Cyrillic, it is "Татьяна" and I have never seen it transliterated as "Teyyana."

    Small point but curious...
