Breaking: Holder DOJ Went Judge Shopping to Three Different Judges Armed With Criminal Warrants for James Rosen The Holder Department of Justice went judge shopping with criminal warrants for James Rosen.
Two separate judges refused to offer DOJ the ability to secretly search the contents of Rosens e-mail account. A third judge, Royce C. Lamberth, appealed the decision and overturned the order of the two judges.
Judge Royce C. Lamberth was the third judge approached by the DOJ. He appealed two previous judges decision and allowed the DOJ to secretly snoop on FOX News reporter James Rosen.
Wasn’t Lamberth Clinton’s go to guy?
Wasn’t Royce C. Lamberth the judge who ordered Clinton to release the emails leading up to his impeachment?
This is what Amerika has come to: Criminal Judges following the 3rd Reich Democrats! The law is molded to what they want it to be.
I forgot to click “This is an excerpt.”
This is wrong information. I looked last week,it was a magistrate under Lamberth’s court. Lamberth is conserative,I would not think they would even go there. Going now to look up the paper work again.
Lamberth is a Reagan appointee and presided over the FISA court, which approved covert national security wiretaps. He used to give Clinton fits.
He may simply be growing senile. He was both in 1943 so is 70. Or maybe someone boiled his cat?
OR the government may have loaded up the search warrant affidavit with shocking stuff.
Let me see, turned down by two judges, goes to a third, highly unethical. Then they allegedly told Fox News about the subpeonas but Fox has no record of being told. Methinks we have the makings of a case against Mr. Holder. And not to forget, his excellency put Holder in charge of looking into this problem. Seems to me his excellency should go too as an accessory or in common parlence, a cover up artist.
Poorly written article.
Judges do not “appeal” anything.
right. Judge did not “appeal” and it would be a severe breach of protocol to allow judge shopping, unless Just Us Department lawyer lied and said “you are the first judge we came to”
Okay. Here’s the question. Does holder deserve a ping list all his very own? Let me know.
The subscriber therefore will never know, by being provided a copy of the warrant, for example, that the government secured a warrant and searched the contents of her e-mail account, Judge John M. Facciola wrote in an opinion rejecting the Obama Administrations argument.
“Her” e-mail account? Gender error, IRRC.
The original New Yorker story, on which this Gateway Pundit "recap" is based, provides the pertinent information. The Gateway Pundit recap is poorly written. The first "two judges" were magistrate judges; Judge Lambeth is a U.S. district court judge.
There is nothing "unethical" about DOJ's appealing to a U.S. district court judge an order of a magistrate judge with which it disagrees. That's how the process works. Simply put, there was no "judge shopping" here.
Not defending Lamberth's decision, but his role is to review decisions by lower courts.
Someone needs to get this judge’s checking account statement around about this time period.
Of course that would have to be done by Holder and...
aw hell, this country is so far out of whack, I don’t know if it can come back.
