Casey Cooper is new to the bench, but hes 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 administrations 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 Obamas national security adviser. Susan Rices 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 Coopers 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.

Is there ANYONE, anywhere, from the Capitol to the Pentagon
that gives a substantive damn?
Wow. Obviously the fix is in..........
Incest is best
Check for the rolex wearing wrist up his backside?
“I am a puppet!” -Yoda character in Thump Wars.
Guaranteed that the outcome will be favorable to the same administration that screwed the pooch in Benghazi.
No chance of a whitewash or conflict of interest here,move along please.
"There is not even the attempt to appear without impropriety."
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??"
“He just wants to kick off the conflict — and he’s counting on us to do it.”
I’m ready lets roll!
Before its over the perp will confess to making the video that caused all the trouble
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.
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.
We've got one shot left, in 2016.
Nothing new for this demon spawn from Hell son a MOSLEM screwing whore .

This is going to be fair from the way it looks. /s
What Benghazi trial? Didn’t know there was one. How about protesting this one loud and clear?
Wonder if they will follow Islamic Sharia law ?
Killing the Kafir is approved under Sharia.
Why am I surprised?
No Imam for a Sharia trial? This must be the interim step in transforming this country to what it should be.
They didn’t make him judge for no reason you know.
Might as well be tried by the IRS.
Let Republicanprofessor know if you want on or off this ping list.
Shouldn’t this judged recuse himself. There is no way he can be impartial or even give the appearance of impartiality.
Well,,,,, being a rookie, he might make an actionable comment! Watch and examine everything he says!
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.
