  • DOJ against holding people because they can't afford bail

    washingtonexaminer.com ^ | Aug. 20, 2016 | T. BECKET ADAMS
    It is unconstitutional for defendants to be held in jail simply because they can't afford to post bail, the Justice Department asserted this week. This marks the first time that the federal government has sided with this position before an appeals court, according to NBC News. In a friend of the court briefing, the DOJ said: "Bail practices that incarcerate indigent individuals before trial solely because of their inability to pay for their release violate the Fourteenth Amendment." The Fourteenth Amendment guarantees that no citizen can be denied "life, liberty or property, without due process of law."

    Republican lawmakers are expressing annoyance that, although the FBI has passed Congress the documents detailing the investigation into the Clinton email scandal, the documents are not actually readable due to the format in which they were handed over. According to Fox News, the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Republican Chuck Grassley, claimed that documents handed over by the FBI are largely unreadable because they published classified material together with unclassified material, so only a select few have the clearance to read the evidence. …

    Although the State Department has asked the FBI to provide notes from its July interview with Hillary Clinton, the law enforcement agency refused to do so before giving Congress the notes Tuesday in a batch of classified documents from its year-long investigation of the Democratic nominee. Mark Toner, a State Department spokesman, said the FBI had shared with his agency some of the sensitive emails that were set to be produced to the House Oversight Committee in response to a request for justification of the decision to clear Clinton of criminal wrongdoing.

    The FBI went to bat for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, saying that handling emails with classified information — even when it’s marked — isn’t enough to prove she had “knowledge or intent” to break the law. In a letter to congressional investigators, the FBI’s chief liaison to Capitol Hill said Mrs. Clinton did handle three messages with a “(C)” mark next to paragraphs, “ostensibly indicating” the following information as classified. But Jason V. Herring said that’s not enough to show she was negligent. Mr. Herring also questioned whether the laws against handling classified material in a “grossly negligent” way would...

"The outcome in both cases favors Secretary Clinton," Cornyn writes.

    A US justice department report has accused police in the city of Baltimore of routinely discriminating against black people and using excessive force. An inquiry was ordered after a young black man, Freddie Gray, died in police custody in April of last year, sparking Baltimore's worst riots for decades. The report found African-Americans had been disproportionately targeted. Unjustified strip searches were conducted while in one arrest, a black man's weapon was listed as "his mouth". In recent years, the justice department has conducted similar investigations into the police in Chicago, Cleveland, Albuquerque and Ferguson, Missouri. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake responded...

Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, released 296 pages of emails from the Democratic presidential nominee, including 44 that Judicial Watch says were not previously handed over to the State Department by Clinton. The emails, many of which are heavily redacted, raise questions about the Clinton Foundation's influence on the State Department and its relations during her tenure. In one instance, top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band lobbied Clinton aides for a job for someone...

However, that doesn’t mean Hillary is out of the FBI woods. According to a source close to Comey, Hillary is still the target of an active FBI criminal investigation, but this time around, the media aren’t paying much attention. With little public fanfare, Comey’s agents have been looking into Hillary’s relationship with foreign businessmen and governments who donated millions of...

    Lawyers at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) concede that substantive errors were made in the legal challenge to President Obama’s executive immigration action. The errors include inaccurate information disclosed by DOJ lawyers in the early stages of the challenge brought by 26 states to a U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) order extending work permits and renewable legal status to four million undocumented immigrants. Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen late in 2014 that they would not begin granting deportation deferrals under the program until February 2015 — in fact, the Department issued 100,000 deferrals beginning...

Normal practice is for agents to jot notes during an interrogation and then summarize what was said in a Form 302, which you’ll hear John Mica mention here. Why would a federal agency eschew recordings in an age when A/V equipment is ubiquitous? Good question. A lot of civil libertarians have...

They did the American people an injustice by removing some of the references of how the killer pledged allegiance to ISIS. Yes that's right, your government redirected all mention to the radical Islamic terrorist group called ISIS to help spare the hurt for some of the victims of the attack. Then Obama's Secretary of Defense Ash Carter gives a speech that includes how the shooter was directly connected with ISIS. How stupid can they keystone cops be? Carter gave information...

    A few stunning aspects stick out from the carefully released partial and redacted transcript from the Orlando terrorist attack. The manner of release affirms the earlier outlines and concerns surrounding AG Loretta Lynch and the Obama Administration: First – this release proves law enforcement, the FBI and the Obama administration knew the motive and intent was Islamic terrorism from the very first second contact was made. When LEO stepped up to the first media press conference they knew it was an Islamic terrorist attack. ◾ Second – this release confirms allegiance with ISIS proclaimed in the specific manner that is...

    The Department of Justice is scrubbing references of radical Islamic beliefs from the transcripts of calls Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen made to police during his massacre, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Sunday. A partial transcript of the conversations between authorities and Mateen, who killed 49 and wounded 53 in the June 12 attack at a Florida gay nightclub, is set to be released on Monday. But Lynch, who appeared on numerous Sunday talk shows, said the transcripts will not include Mateen's oath of loyalty to ISIS or any other religious justification for the attack.

    The White House on Monday blamed the Justice Department for the decision to redact references to radical Islamic terrorists from transcripts of the Orlando shooter’s telephone conversations with police. The White House did not provide guidance to the Justice Department or participate in the censorship of the transcripts, which were released earlier in the day, said press secretary Josh Earnest. “All of the decisions about releasing the transcripts were made by Justice Department officials,” he said at the daily press briefing at the White House.

    The Department of Justice and the FBI has released the unredacted version of the Orlando shooter’s 911 call after tons of outcry for redacting references to ISIS. Republicans by the score ripped the White House over politically correct concerns, and Paul Ryan demanded the unredacted version be released. Here’s the full transcript, without the omissions: OD: Emergency 911, this is being recorded. OM: In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficent [Arabic] OD: What? OM: Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [Arabic]. I wanna let you know, I’m in...

    It had to be either Muslims or Americans. And Obama and his people certainly aren't keeping Americans under their protection. Lynch said it's also important to maintain good relations with the Muslim community to ensure they are treated fairly. "Those communities are targeted as well, they are often swept up in this," she said. "And so we want to make sure that every community in the United States knows that they are under our protection." Swept up in what? Muslim mass shootings? Or that dreaded imaginary backlash which the left pivots to pretending is a more serious issue than the...
