Rookie judge to preside over Benghazi trial
wa po ^ | July 7, 2014 | Al Kamen and Colby Itkowitz

Posted on 07/13/2014 4:47:04 PM PDT by george76

Casey Cooper is new to the bench, but he’s well-connected . Just three months into his tenure on the federal bench, and before his formal investiture ceremony later this week, newly minted — but well-connected — U.S. District Judge Christopher “Casey” Cooper has been handed one of the most high-profile and politically sensitive American terrorism cases in recent years

...

Cooper, 47, was part of the Obama administration’s transition team and is one of the more connected people in D.C. legal circles, Marimow notes. His wife, Amy Jeffress, worked at the Justice Department as a national security adviser to the attorney general. ..

When Cooper was an undergraduate at Yale, his roommate and close friend was John Rice, whose sister is now President Obama’s national security adviser. Susan Rice’s controversial television appearances in the days after the Benghazi attacks helped fuel criticism that the Obama administration was trying to play down suspicions of terrorist involvement in the assault that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.

...

Khattala could take some solace in Cooper’s ties to the defense bar. With his father-in-law, Cooper successfully defended senior Saudi officials in a lawsuit brought by families of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Hasan the murderer was also part of the Obama transition team.

Is there ANYONE, anywhere, from the Capitol to the Pentagon
that gives a substantive damn?

Guaranteed that the outcome will be favorable to the same administration that screwed the pooch in Benghazi.

Well, looking on the bright side -- Eric Holder won't be the presiding judge.

This looks like a typical communists Democratic fix. America is becoming a joke. We will never get to take the garbage out before we are destroyed.

Just another 0bama in-your-face adolescent gesture, this didn’t happen by accident.

Obama wants us to know -- to really, truly know -- that we are a banana republic with no hope of a political solution to our political, legal and economic problems.

He wants civil war. He's pushing us toward that. And let's be clear -- if he imposes martial law, disarms every American, turns us into slaves, and successfully establishes an open dictatorship, that would make him happy.
But that's not expected, and it's not his only winning outcome.
He's willing to lose. Lose everything. Just having the civil war would be victory enough, no matter what the outcome is. Because it would rip us apart, kill many Americans, and permanently weaken us. The country created by the Founding Fathers would be finished, and the land blessed by God would be no more.

He's pushing us toward open revolt, and he doesn't care very much if he wins or loses the fight. He just wants to kick off the conflict -- and he's counting on us to do it.

He's frustrated that it is taking us so long -- and the outrages will continue until he finally pushes us past our limits. Obama keeps asking himself, "What's it going to take??"

The muslims have already taken over this country. They’re in the white house, head of the CIA, head of NASA, probably very big in the NSA and get to stay on planes while Jewish women are kicked off for offending them.

And of course there is nothing the Right can do about this.

Yet

These com-symps have crossed the line and exposed the law and the Constitution for what it is.

Whatever the gang in power says it is, if they have the balls to go all in.

Class warfare is about to become a two way street.

Raila Odinga is married to Ida Odinga (born Ida Anyango Oyoo). They have four children - two sons and two daughters. His oldest son, Fidel, is named after Fidel Castro.[23] Their youngest child, Winnie, is named after Winnie Mandela.[23] Raila lives in Nairobi but has a second home in Bondo District. Raila Odinga is an Anglican.[24]

Odinga claims to be a cousin of American Senator and presidential candidate Barack Obama through the latter’s father, Barack Obama Sr., who Odinga claims was his maternal uncle.[25] This claim has not been corroborated, but Obama Sr. did come from the same Luo tribe as Odinga.[25]

No Imam for a Sharia trial? This must be the interim step in transforming this country to what it should be.

Shouldn’t this judged recuse himself. There is no way he can be impartial or even give the appearance of impartiality.

There is no desire to be impartial .

They do not care about the appearance of impartiality. The enemedia has their back.

Hitler and Stalin would approve.
