    NEW YORK (AP) — The latest on sexual harassment allegations at Fox News (all times local): An attorney for a former Fox News contributor is calling for an independent investigation of sexual harassment allegations against host Bill O’Reilly. Lisa Bloom represents Wendy Walsh, a former Fox News contributor who says she lost a segment on “The O’Reilly Factor” after she refused to go to O’Reilly’s bedroom following a 2013 dinner in Los Angeles.
  • Flashback – Maxine Waters Complained Obama Didn’t Rid Bush-era U.S. Attorneys Fast Enough

    California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters complained that Barrack Obama didn’t get rid of Bush-era U.S. attorneys fast enough back in May of 2009. Maxine Waters: “As we understand it, the protocol has been that U.S. attorneys hand in their resignations and would give the new administration an opportunity to make new appointments, we don’t see that happening quite fast enough.” The fake news media has been wringing their hands over Sessions’ request for Obama-era attorneys to resign as if it’s something that has never been done before. This was standard operating procedure after Obama became President. They also failed to...
  • Jeff Sessions’s Firing of 46 Obama-Appointed U.S. Attorneys Isn’t Scandalous

    In March 1993, Janet Reno began her tenure as President Bill Clinton’s attorney general by summarily firing United States attorneys for 93 of the 94 federal districts (one, Michael Chertoff, was retained in New Jersey, at the request of Democratic Senator Bill Bradley). That is more than twice as many as Trump attorney general Jeff Sessions fired on Friday. Indeed, there were only 46 Obama-appointed U.S. attorneys left for Sessions to relieve because Obama appointees fully understood that this is the way things work. Many of them had already moved on, in the expectation that the president elected in...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions requested the resignations of Obama holdovers in the Department of Justice. Predictably, the Dishonest Media went crazy. Liberals said there’s something bad behind this. They said Trump must be wanting to stop corruption investigations. They said this is an affront to everything everyone holds dear. Here’s one example about Preet Bharara from CNN: Preet Bharara is known for his fierce pursuit of insider trading and corruption cases. Now, he's out. https://t.co/8qDzYrg8qf pic.twitter.com/PQ90yOSz62 — CNN (@CNN) March 11, 2017 The problem is: Firing U.S. Attorneys is a normal thing.

    In a move that will likely provoke further media, and pundit, fury, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked all remaining Obama-appointed U.S. Attorneys for their resignation. Sarah Isgur Flores, Director of Public Affairs at the Department of Justice, released the following statement: "As was the case in prior transitions, many of the United States Attorneys nominated by the previous administration already have left the Department of Justice. The Attorney General has now asked the remaining 46 presidentially appointed U.S. Attorneys to tender their resignations in order to ensure a uniform transition. Until the new U.S. Attorneys are confirmed, the dedicated...

    Top lawyers who helped the Obama White House craft and hold to rules of conduct believe President Donald Trump and his staff will break ethics norms meant to guard against politicization of the government — and they’ve formed a new group to prepare, and fight. United to Protect Democracy, which draws its name from a line in President Barack Obama’s farewell address that urged his supporters to pick up where he was leaving off, has already raised a $1.5 million operating budget, hired five staffers and has plans to double that in the coming months. They’ve incorporated as both a...
  • How State Bars Are Taking Down Conservative Attorneys

    Townhall.com ^ | July 5, 2016 | Rachel Alexander
    State bars across the country have become havens for the left in recent years, increasingly used to target conservative attorneys. With deep pockets — due to the exorbitant amount of dues they charge attorneys in order to practice law — it is impossible to fight back once targeted. More than half of state bars are mandatory, which means they are unavoidable if you want to practice law. This is very disturbing, considering many of these states have right-to-work laws. Why are attorneys required to join a union? Arizona has one of the most corrupt state bars in the country. Many...

    Ask Jason Fraser how many jobs he applied for after graduating from a St. Petersburg law school last year and this is what he says: “Maybe 10 or 20 when it was some place I wanted to work. Maybe 50 when I started getting desperate.’’ After searching as far afield as Ocala and Miami, Fraser finally landed a public defender’s post in Pasco County in June. But his months of job-hunting raises another question, one that nags at many in the legal profession: Does Florida have too many lawyers? Since 2000, the number of licensed attorneys has swollen from 60,900...

    With the new year comes new insane laws from California, making it officially America's Sanctuary State -- treating illegal aliens who broke the law to enter the U.S. as well as law-abiding citizens, protecting illegals from deportation, and putting public safety at grave risk. In October, California Gov. Jerry Brown (D), signed eight bills handing special rights to illegal aliens. The controversial legislation includes allowing illegal alien obtain driver's licenses, preventing employers from denying jobs based on "immigration status", and barring state and local law enforcement from detaining illegal aliens when directed by ICE, DHS or Border Patrol. The legislation claims that...

    Even as Obamacare faces a rocky rollout, the legal battle against the program grinds on. A lawsuit aimed at overturning Obamacare on the basis of the Origination Clause has moved to the appeals court after losing its first round in federal trial court. Attorneys for the Pacific Legal Foundation in Sacramento filed an appeal last week with the District of Columbia Court of Appeals after a federal judge ruled June 28 in favor of the Obama administration’s motion to dismiss the case. “Whoever loses at this stage of the proceeding will undoubtedly file at United States Supreme Court for a...

    MIAMI — Legions of lawyers are ready to enter the fray in case Election Day turns on a legal challenge. One nightmare scenario would be for the results in a battleground state like Florida or Ohio to be too close to call, with thousands of absentee or provisional ballots yet to be counted. The key, experts say, is whether the difference in votes between the two candidates is within what's known as the "margin of litigation" — that is, the number of outstanding votes must be much greater than the margin separating Obama and Romney when the smoke clears. And,...

    While Justice Department and ATF officials (reportedly including key players from the Phoenix Field Division at the time Operation Fast and Furious was being implemented) pore over the Office of Inspector General draft report during the required review and comment period, Arizona attorney, author, civil rights activist and blogger David T. Hardy, reminded his readers yesterday of an earlier report that, in his words, “spells out ‘gunwalking.’” Writing on his Of Arms and the Law blog, Hardy linked to the Justice Department’s September, 2010 “PROJECT GUNRUNNER, A Cartel Focused Strategy” publication and called attention to several key passages. Including, and...

    Madison - Republicans in the state Senate did not use talking points that told lawmakers to ignore public comments about new election maps, their leader said Tuesday. "I've never seen that and no other member of my caucus has seen that," Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) said Tuesday when shown a copy of the talking points. "It wasn't put together for me." The talking points appear to have been produced in June by Adam Foltz, an aide to Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald (R-Horicon) who helped draw new election maps. The talking points said Republican lawmakers should ignore comments other...

    Trial attorneys use obscure labor law that sees retailers facing millions in damages. Retail store operators may want to sit down for this one — if they can find a chair. Nearly every national chain is under legal attack in California for failing to provide “suitable seating” for cashiers and other employees who are expected to spend most of their work day on their feet. Enterprising trial attorneys by the dozen are using an obscure California labor law requiring retailers such as Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Target to have enough seats on hand for their workers.

Morgan Kim, the deputy chief counsel and the lead attorney on the case of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), is one of the attorneys placed on leave, said several sources familiar with the controversy. Stacy Sovereign, another committee lawyer, was also put on leave, these sources said. Blake Chisam, the chief counsel and staff director for the ethics panel, initially sought to fire Kim and Sovereign on Nov. 19, but was unable to do so.

    Judicial Watch has filed suit against the Department of Justice for failure to respond lawfully to the non-profit watchdog group's Freedom of Information Act request for documents concerning the government's policy of giving funds from settlements obtained in civil right discrimination suits to outside groups with no connection to the cases. ~snip~ Judicial Watch's FOIAs were sparked by two cases in which the government directed millions of dollars from settlement funds to groups with no official link to the cases. In the first case, a California landlord was accused of discrimination by prospective Korean tenants. The landlord denied the charges,...
