  • FL AG Bondi: ‘Some Folks’ in Broward County Sheriff’s Department ‘Were Not Honest With Me’

    02/27/2018 12:27:40 AM PST · by a little elbow grease · 71 replies ^ | 2/26/18 | Pam Key
    Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said members of the Broward County Sheriff’s Department were not honest about why more deputies reportedly failed to enter the building and engage with the shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Bondi said, “I know a lot more than you all do now, so all I’m going to say is, yes, I believe there needs to be a full investigation. I don’t think some people were honest and we’re going to investigate this situation in Florida, and the right thing will be done.” Steve Doocy asked,...

    FORT LAUDERDALE — President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi met with Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and law enforcement officers and first responders.... A transcript of the meeting with first responders as provided by the White House: I just got back from the hospital. A young woman was shot — four bullets, two in her lungs. And they got her over to the hospital in less than 21 minutes. She had no chance, and, between the first responders, your people who got her — you...
  • The Dirty Attorney General Going After Trump

    The Clinton Foundation is a national and international scandal. It’s under investigation by the FBI, but not by the Attorney General of New York, who is instead targeting the Trump Foundation. The media has spent weeks suggesting the existence of an inappropriate political relationship between Trump and Florida AG Pam Bondi. And yet it’s cheering the wildly inappropriate relationship which has resulted in a member of Hillary’s leadership council investigating her political opponent.

    Islamic State has issued fresh calls for terror attacks in Australia, targeting iconic landmarks including the Opera House, MCG and Bondi. In the first edition of Rumiyah, Islamic State’s online magazine, which was released yesterday, the terrorist group has urged followers to stab, shoot, and poison Australian people. “Light the ground beneath them aflame and scorch them with terror. Kill them on the streets of Brunswick, Broadmeadows, Bankstown, and Bondi. Kill them at the MCG, the SCG, the Opera House, and even in their backyards,” the article reads. “Stab them, shoot them, poison them, and run them down with your...

    Pam Bondi was an early endorser of Trump. She's the attorney general in her second term, an 18-year prosecutor. She's an outsider who became an insider, and she has a good, strong relationship already with the candidate.... I think he's looking for someone that brings something to his ticket that does not go against the narrative he's been selling for the last six months, and I think people like Pam would fit the bill.

    The Donald J. Trump Foundation's donation to Pam Bondi's political committee may have been illegal, according to an ethics watchdog group. In 2013, when Bondi was running for re-election as attorney general, the Trump Foundation gave $25,000 to And Justice for All, which she controls. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington on Monday asked the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the money. Private foundations are prohibited under the tax code from engaging in political activity, according to a letter from the watchdog group to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. What's more, the Trump Foundation's federal tax filings from 2013 say...

    TAMPA, Florida — Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi endorsed Donald Trump for president Monday, calling him a longtime friend and giving him a late-campaign boost as he seeks to try to win the state in Tuesday’s primary. Ms. Bondi, considered a rising star in GOP politics, said Mr. Trump has tapped the same outsider spirit that she herself ran in 2010. “You are speaking loud and clear, and Americans are speaking loud and clear,” Ms. Bondi told supporters at a rally in Tampa. She also had another reason for backing Mr. Trump: “I always listen to my mom, and my...
  • 'Court Has Spoken' on Gay Marriage: Florida Attorney General

    NBC Miami ^ | Jun 26, 2015
    Bondi defended the state against lawsuits aimed at upending a ban on same sex marriage that had been approved by Florida efforts. Bondi defended her role in the legal battle in a statement released Friday, but added it is time to accept the outcome. She said the Supreme Court's decision "provided the clarity our state and country was seeking." Bondi said legal efforts were not about personal beliefs or opinions, but rather, "the rule of law." A federal judge ruled last year that Florida's voter-approved ban is unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle stayed the effect of his ruling until...

    Less than two weeks after a federal court refused to temporarily block gay marriages from taking place, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi on Monday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intercede... Recent history suggests Bondi's application is headed for rejection. Her request will land on the desk of one of the court's most conservative members — Justice Clarence Thomas, who is responsible for overseeing federal courts in Florida. He could rule on her request for a stay (in which case, the full court could reverse his decision) or he could refer the matter to the entire court.

    Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is asking the Florida Supreme Court to rule on same-sex marriage in the Sunshine State. On Monday, Bondi filed an appeal with the 3rd District Court of Appeal asking them to consider ruling on allowing gay couples to marry in Florida.... "Until recently, the issue was squarely before the United States Supreme Court, and it appeared that a definitive answer was coming," wrote Bondi. "Several certi-orari petitions from several states asked that court to take up the issue and rule. Even those who had prevailed below sought Supreme Court review. The United States Supreme Court...

    A Sanford judge today ruled that Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi does not have to answer defense attorneys' questions under oath in a mammoth Internet casino gambling case pending in Seminole County. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. made that ruling this morning.The case involves more than 50 defendants, accused of violating the state's gambling, racketeering and money laundering laws by operating Internet cafes that prosecutors say served as storefront gambling parlors. Each had ties to the non-profit Allied Veterans of the World, a group that provided charity to military veterans but, according to authorities, donated just two percent of its...

    Prosecutors and defense attorneys in the Allied Veterans of the World case are disputing whether Attorney General Pam Bondi must answer a subpoena and testify. Court records show the state has asked a judge to quash a subpoena for Bondi, who is scheduled for a deposition next week by attorneys for several defendants in the gambling and money laundering case. Bondi argued in her motion that her testimony is no different from what other witnesses could offer and she is entitled to “testimonial immunity” due to her rank. Defense attorney Curtis Fallgatter argued in court documents that Bondi was briefed...

    Florida AG Says Carrying a Gun is Always Presumably a Crime | All Nine Yards. “Given the small percentage of the population that is licensed to carry a concealed firearm, the overwhelming majority of firearms, or 95%, are not licensed to be concealed. Thus, an officer’s suspicion that a firearm is not licensed would be reasonable because, in any given case, there would be, statistically speaking, a 95% likelihood of illegality.” Wait, what? Oh Jesus Lord, what a dumb statement! Are we to assume that since about 50% of Florida’s population have unregistered, unlicensed vaginas, they should be suspects of...

    I’m beginning to believe the 26 State Attorney Generals who challenged Obamacare may have acted more for political purposes or to pacify the people`s outrage over such an extraordinary assumption of power by the federal government, then actually having Obamacare overturned by the Court. When Obamacare was passed, instead of going directly to the Supreme Court which has original jurisdiction in such cases and which I then constantly pointed out, these AGs diddled and dallied for almost two years in lower courts which helped to diminish the people`s outrage by giving the people hope the law would eventually be rightfully...
