We are pleased that Justice Kennedys retirement from the Supreme Court will provide President Trump another opportunity to nominate a constitutional conservative who will honor the Constitution and the rule of law, rather than legislate from the bench.
And the U.S. Senate should move quickly to work with President Trump to consider and approve a new justice who will apply the U.S. Constitution as written and understood by our Founding Fathers.
The importance of the solidifying a conservative majority on the Supreme Court was made clear this week in the courts 5-4 vote to uphold President Trumps so-called travel ban. The wording of the law under which he established the ban, and which politically motivated anti-Trump lower court judges simply ignored, could not be clearer :
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.
The presidents right to make these decisions is clear on its face, and it is troubling that this had to go all the way to the Supreme Court to be settled.
Chief Justice Roberts wrote in the majority opinion: By its plain language [the law] grants the President broad discretion to suspend the entry of aliens into the United States. The President lawfully exercised that discretion based on his findingsfollowing a worldwide, multi-agency reviewthat entry of the covered aliens would be detrimental to the national interest.
The law is designed to protect all of us. The courts decision is a victory for national security, the U.S. Constitution, the rule of law, and the safety of U.S. citizens and other innocents. It also represents a major defeat for the anti-Trump judiciary and its political attacks on President Trump.
In December 2017 we uncovered documents showing strong support by top DOJ officials for former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates refusal to enforce President Trumps Middle East travel ban executive order. In one email, Andrew Weissmann, one of Robert Muellers top prosecutors and formerly the Obama-era Chief of the Justice Departments Criminal Fraud Section, applauds Yates by writing : I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.
You can see how the Deep State and its liberal allies will be pushing back this summer on President Trumps Supreme Court nomination. As always, you can expect strong leadership from Judicial Watch in the coming battle.
A federal court judge rejected efforts by the Justice Department to continue stonewalling Judicial Watch on a simple records request for information the Clinton campaign vendor Fusion GPS, the entity behind the infamous anti-Trump Dossier. U.S. District Court Judge Reggie B. Walton ordered the Justice Department to immediately begin producing records about DOJ communications with Nellie Ohr, the wife of senior DOJ official Bruce Ohr. Nellie Ohr worked for Clinton campaign vendor Fusion GPS on the anti-Trump Dossier campaign document.
In December 2017, Bruce Ohr was removed from his position as U.S. Associate Deputy Attorney General after it was revealed that he conducted undisclosed meetings with anti-Trump dossier author Christopher Steel and Glenn Simpson, principal of Fusion GPS. A House Intelligence Committee memo released by Chairman Devin Nunes on February 2 noted that Ohrs wife, Nellie, was employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump and that Bruce Ohr passed the results of that research, which was paid for by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign, to the FBI.
Judge Walton rejected a Justice Department request to begin producing documents six months from now and ordered the DOJ to begin producing documents immediately on a rolling basis over the next two months. Judge Walton also rejected DOJs efforts to restrict their search to only 2016.
Judge Walton repeatedly criticized the Justice Department during a June 14 hearing:
I think if its been almost, since December when the initial request was made more should have been done by now. And it seems to me if you have someone whos going to come into office and they say theyre going to be a disrupter, that they should appreciate theres going to be a lot of FOIA requests and therefore, should gear up to deal with those requests. So Im not real sympathetic to the position that you have limited staff and therefore, you cant comply with these requests. So I think youre going to have to get some more people.
I mean FOIA is considered to be very important. I keep getting from the government, from various agencies we cant do this, we cant do that because we dont have the resources. Im not real sympathetic to that. FOIA is important. Open government is important, and government has to comply with FOIA in order to make it an open government.
In March 2018 we filed the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit after the Justice Department failed to respond to a December 2017 FOIA request ( Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No.1:18-cv-00491)). The lawsuit seeks:
We are, of course, pleased that another court has rejected the Justice Departments inexcusable stonewalling on a matter of intense public interest Obama DOJ collusion with the Clinton campaign vendor Fusion GPS to target then-candidate Donald Trump.
How extraordinary it is that this Justice Department is now under court order to stop stalling on releasing records about potential corruption in the Obama Justice Department!
There should be more lawsuits against people, especially people in power for advocating violence against others. I’ve never seen a group of people that embraced sour grapes as much as the dems. They are absolute lunatics.
Yes. It is time to reign in Mad Maxine.
Off the Wall Ping!
Contact to be added.
Waste of time. Libtards never get found guilty of anything: witness Hillary, her perverted husband, Susan Rice, (fill in the blank).
Yep, the further left the Dems go the loonier they get and many can’t go much further left.
What Maxine did was to incite violence.
Yelling fire in a theater is not explicitly violent, but there are criminal sanctions from someone doing this.
Why is a congress critter allowed to incite mob violence?
Send her home to her Maxi pad to spend more time with the family and her money.
I hope she continues her rhetoric. Hang this idiot around the necks of all democRATS.
This IS the democRAT party. She is just saying what all of them are thinking.
