    Penn State climate scientist, Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann commits contempt of court in the ‘climate science trial of the century.’ Prominent alarmist shockingly defies judge and refuses to surrender data for open court examination. Only possible outcome: Mann’s humiliation, defeat and likely criminal investigation in the U.S. The defendant in the libel trial, the 79-year-old Canadian climatologist, Dr Tim Ball (above, right) is expected to instruct his British Columbia attorneys to trigger mandatory punitive court sanctions, including a ruling that Mann did act with criminal intent when using public funds to commit climate data fraud. Mann’s imminent defeat is set...

    An Iowa Congressman claimed on Sunday that Republicans on Capitol Hill have copies of the 650,000 emails the FBI recovered from a computer belonging to Anthony Weiner. 'The good thing is, Congress has preserved them for our access,' Iowa Rep. Steve King said before a Donald Trump rally in Sioux City. 'So the Weiner leaks, the WikiLeaks, you name your leaks, we've got our hands on all of them – 650,000 emails.' King also suggested that the number of emails related to the FBI investigation may be larger than 650,000.

  • Arizona's Sheriff Joe Arpaio officially charged with criminal contempt

    PHOENIX -- The longtime sheriff of metropolitan Phoenix was formally charged Tuesday with criminal contempt-of-court for ignoring a judge’s order in a racial-profiling case. Prosecutors promised two weeks ago that they would prosecute Sheriff Joe Arpaio. But the misdemeanor count wasn’t officially filed against the 84-year-old lawman until U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton signed it. Arpaio, who is up for re-election Nov. 8 seeking his seventh term, could face up to six months in jail if convicted. A misdemeanor conviction would not bar Arpaio from serving as sheriff. The criminal charges stem from the profiling case that Arpaio lost three...

    A bombshell email reveals a Reuters reporter shared a secret document from the Benghazi investigation committee with Hillary Clinton's campaign. Reuters American investigative correspondent Mark Hosenball emailed Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta on April 21, 2015, telling him Hosenball had "a rather interesting document which outlines in detail the principal current objectives of the House Benghazi Committee," and that he was willing to show it to Clinton campaign operatives, according to an email published by WikiLeaks. "If you are anywhere near 1333 H in next day or two I might even show the document to you (I’m out on Thursday,...
  • GOP-led House panel finds former Clinton aide in contempt (Pagliano)

    A Republican-led House committee voted on Thursday to hold in contempt of Congress a former State Department employee who helped set up Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's private email server. The employee's lawyer accused the panel of a "naked political agenda." The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee approved the contempt resolution on a 19-15 party-line vote. The resolution states that Bryan Pagliano, the computer specialist tasked with establishing Clinton's server while she was secretary of state, did not comply with two subpoenas ordering him to appear before the panel. Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the panel's senior Democrat, bemoaned...

    While I have consistently dissented in this column and elsewhere from extreme versions of the anti-Trump barrage across the American and international media, he was not my first choice for the Republican nomination, and I have tried not to close the door prematurely on the election. The antics of the Democrats and their noisiest sympathizers in the last ten days have made any effort to retain a glimmer of hope that Mrs. Clinton might survive as election-worthy all the way to November 8 very challenging. Her reference to half of Donald Trump’s supporters as “deplorable” is now old news, but...

    Simply put, he can sympathise with the average voter - while Hillary has nothing but contempt for ordinary people. Notice the great contrast in the way the two campaigns are conducted: Trump has large public rallies that are open to all, he's not afraid to meet those who aren't necessarily on his side (Mexican President, black churches), not afraid to meet with ordinary people in crisis (the LA floods), and he often does live interviews on TV. And then there's Hillary ... Hillary who never has large open public rallies, every event is closed to just her select group of...

    Just moments before Attorney General Eric Holder was voted in contempt of Congress by Republicans and Democrats in June 2012 , President Obama asserted executive privilege over thousands of documents related to Operation Fast and Furious. Holder was held in contempt for stonewalling and failing to turn over the documents to the House Oversight Committee. Obama granted the executive privilege request despite claiming to have no knowledge about Operation Fast and Furious when it was active from 2009-2010. Now after years of court battles and a federal judge striking down the executive privilege assertion, Obama has finally agreed turned them...

U.S. District Court Judge Lynn Winmill ruled Tuesday that the U.S. Forest Service disregarded 2009 court orders that threw out Payette National Forest reports on disease transmission between bighorn sheep and domestic sheep.

For those of you expecting anything near the truth to be outed during this hearing, guess again. The whole structure of the congressional committee hearings is to give the members of Congress an opportunity to bloviate, obfuscate and create campaign sound bites. Nothing is geared toward finding the truth.

    Judge is pursuing contempt after finding sheriff’s office discriminated against HispanicsMaricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has petitioned to have the federal judge who’s investigating him kicked off the case, telling an appeals court that Judge G. Murray Snow’s wife admitted to friends that her husband was intent on destroying the Arizona lawman. Judge Snow has been battling Sheriff Arpaio for years, and in 2013 ruled that the Maricopa County department discriminated against Hispanics by targeting them for immigration enforcement. Earlier this year the judge began contempt proceedings, accusing the sheriff of intentionally ignoring his orders — but Sheriff Arpaio says...

    There have been dozens of questions surrounding the disappearance of emails belonging to former IRS official Lois Lerner, the woman at the center of the IRS targeting scandal. Some of Lerner's emails have been recovered, after IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said under oath they were lost forever. Thousands are still missing. But perhaps the most compelling questions that have been asked since the IRS targeting scandal broke in May 2013 are 1) Exactly where were Lerner's emails and backup tapes destroyed? 2) Who destroyed them? Now, we have an answer. According to Americans for Tax Reform,Lerner's hard drive was...

    IRS Commissioner John Koskinen has had a bad week. Thanks to his efforts to obstruct a Congressional investigation into the targeting of conservative groups seeking tax exempt status, House Republicans have demanded his dismissal by Barack Obama, and have threatened to impeach Koskinen if Obama does nothing. On top of that, a federal judge yesterday got fed up with the IRS’ attempts to obstruct a FOIA demand that he threatened to haul Koskinen into court in order to charge him with contempt. It might be a bad week for the IRS’ attorneys, too: During the a status hearing today, Sullivan...

    The Justice Department will not seek criminal contempt charges against former IRS official Lois Lerner, the central figure in a scandal that erupted over whether the tax agency improperly targeted conservative political groups. Ronald Machen, the former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, told House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in a seven-page letter this week that he would not bring a criminal case to a grand jury over Lerner’s refusal to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in March 2014. The House approved a criminal contempt resolution against Lerner in May 2014, and Machen’s office has...

    The Obama administration informed House Speaker John A. Boehner this week it will not prosecute former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner for contempt of Congress, concluding that she did not waive her Fifth Amendment rights to avoid answering questions when she was called to testify nearly two years ago. Ms. Lerner, the figure at the center of the IRS’s tea party targeting scandal, is still facing investigation over the intrusive scrutiny of conservative groups, but the decision by U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen not to pursue the contempt charge approved by the U.S. House does away with at least some of...

    According to the Daily Caller, not signing the “formal separation agreement” (OF-109) upon departing employment at the State Department can have “dire consequences.”These comments come from well known State Department security agent and whistle-blower, Richard Higbie: “Ramifications for lower-level State Department employees include the withholding of retirement benefits and possible investigations conducted by the agency into why employees declined to sign the form, whistle-blower Richard Higbie says.” Per the State Department’s own rules, employees leaving the agency must sign the OF-109 document, certifying that turned over any and all documents in their possession related to any State Department business.If what...
