TO:       Chief Judge, duly credentialed         Ref. #14-CR-27-F

          U.S. District Court                         (USDC/DWY)

          700 Stewart St.

FROM:     Paul Andrew Mitchell, B.A., M.S.

          FDC SeaTac Reg. No. 44202-086, Unit “EA”


SUBJECT:  James P. Donohue’s conflict of interest

          and demonstrable bias



Greetings Your Honor:


Start by reviewing Martinez v. Winner, 771 F.2d 424.


Please allow me to begin this REQUEST by confirming that Mr. James P. Donohue has failed to produce any evidence of a valid OPM SF-61 APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS.


Moreover, I have made that request in writing, which Mr. Donohue did not answer, and personally at the Clerk’s public counter on 6/11/2013.  An employee of the Clerk’s Office replied:  “We are not going to cooperate with you, Mr. Mitchell.”


Mr. Donohue’s signature, as I recall, was visible on the “search warrant” [sic] to which I objected on 6/11/2013, chiefly because I have never had any opportunity to inspect his APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS.


Also, in violation of 28 U.S.C. 16912, that “search warrant” did not display any

signature of any Clerk or Deputy Clerk of Court;  it did show a rubber stamp bearing the name of “William M. McCool”, who has also refused to produce any evidence of a valid OPM SF-61 APPOINTMENT AFFIDAVITS, as required by 5 U.S.C. 2903, 2906, 3331, and the Oath of Office Clause.


Furthermore, Mr. Donohue has manifested bias and apparent prejudice specifically in the “DETENTION ORDER” dated January 31, 2014.  For example:  Using U.S. v. Callender, 25 F.Cas. 239 (1800) as a guide:


(a)     “Defendant has made it clear he will not go to the District of Wyoming willingly.” [sic]


Objection:  I have no car, no driver’s license, and I did have just barely enough money saved to pay 2 months of rent.  Travel is out of the question to such a distant city, as long as I am expected to pay travel costs etc.



(b)     “Defendant does not believe the Court has authority over him and will not comply with Court Orders.” [sic]


The record shows I timely challenged jurisdiction.  I timely objected, and my objection was “noted”.  Pursuant to case law I have already studied under 28 U.S.C. 1691, violations of that law do deprive the Court of jurisdiction in personam!  Likewise, Court “orders” are process as that term occurs in Sec. 1691.  In point of law, the Court does lack “authority over me” as long as it lacks jurisdiction in personam.  28 U.S.C.A. 1691.

(c)     “There are no conditions or combination of conditions other than detention that will reasonably assure the appearance of defendant as required in the District of Wyoming.” [sic]


That exaggerated and foregone conclusion overlooked the obvious:  I can appear in writing at preliminary hearings held in Cheyenne, Wyoming, provided I am released on my own recognizance (“OR”) and allowed to prepare my own defense, using the powerful computer resources I have assembled in my apartment.


“House arrest” is another option, provided I be allowed to return to my apartment as described in the preceding paragraph.


I am presently at real risk of LOSING that apartment and ALL of my personal and professional possessions.  Why?  Reprisal?


What was the REAL reason for the lightning bolt arrest on 1/28/2014, and the cruel and unusual punishment of expending me NON-STOP to solitary confinement, orchestrated by lies, defamations and distortions?




Is there a conspiracy to violate rights guaranteed by the Constitution?




The facts above fully justify an ORDER to the OUSA to show cause why (a) Mr. Donohue’s rulings & hearings should not be vacated and why (b) Defendant should not be released on his own recognizance so that he may prepare his defense In Propria Persona, on his own computers.
