  • So Where's the 302, Bob? Endgame Nears for Mueller

    12/16/2018 2:01:35 PM PST · by Jet Jaguar · 91 replies ^ | Fri, December 14, 2018 | Emparator rex
    The whiny submission of Mueller's SC to Judge Emmet Sullivan this afternoon, reeks of panic desperation and arrogance. There's also a critical piece of evidence missing. As Rex explains, Mueller can whine all he wants. None of it will wash with Judge Emmet Sullivan, who will now be incandescent with fury. After reading General Flynn's bombshell pre-sentencing memorandum earlier this week, Judge Sullivan on Wednesday ordered Mueller's team to produce to turn over all of the government's documents and "memoranda" related to Flynn's questioning. The whiny and petulant response by Mueller and his goons reads more like a press release...

    Mueller’s prosecutors filed a formal complaint against Judge T.S. Ellis this week claiming he violated protocol by ‘unfairly’ blasting the prosecutors over a witness. Mueller’s team of liberal hack lawyers are becoming increasingly frustrated with Judge Ellis to the point of being pushed to tears.
  • The Special Counsel Files A Complaint Against Manafort Judge (Ellis)

    Special counsel Robert Mueller filed a formal complaint against the judge presiding over Paul Manafort’s tax fraud case this week; claiming T.S. Ellis III violated protocol while ruling against the prosecution’s star witness. According to Politico, Mueller’s team is increasingly frustrated with the “cranky judge” who has rebuked the special counsel’s office on multiple occasions. [T]he judge’s condescending attitude [could give] the jury the impression that the prosecution’s case is dubious “[T]he judge’s condescending attitude [could give] the jury the impression that the prosecution’s case is dubious,

    For more than two months, the FBI has failed to abide by a judge’s order to turn over all of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s text messages, emails and SMS phone messages to a government watchdog group that has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a former senior FBI special agent. The communications in question are related to McCabe’s wife’s unsuccessful run for Virginia State senate and might also contain invaluable information on McCabe’s role in the Bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server used to send classified information, several former FBI sources and a government official told...

    A photo that appeared on Reddit last week of Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt wearing a pink “pussy hat” in the courtroom made the rounds on Twitter Monday. The knit cap, which recently made the cover of TIME, was conceived by two women in Los Angeles who envisioned “a sea of pink hats” at the Women’s March on Washington.

    The State Department broke a judge's order on the number of former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton's emails it was supposed to release Thursday, blaming the holiday season for throwing it off track. The department promised another release of emails next week to make up for its breach, and said even the emails it was releasing Thursday will not be fully processed and won't be able to be sorted by senders or recipients in the department's computer system. "We have worked diligently to come as close to the goal as possible, but with the large number of documents involved and the...
  • Perry’s prosecutor isn’t prone to partisanship, say those who know him

    08/17/2014 10:30:59 AM PDT · by lowbridge · 100 replies ^ | august 16, 2014 | james drew
    It didn’t take long for Michael McCrum to become a bull’s-eye for Republicans outraged by the felony charges against Gov. Rick Perry. But those who know the 57-year-old McCrum say the sweeping partisan attacks against him won’t stick. As the special prosecutor in the Perry case, McCrum is a veteran attorney — and former cop in Dallas and Arlington — who’s been on both sides in legal skirmishes. He’s got plenty of fans, both Democrats and Republicans. And his political leanings largely are muted. -snip McCrum, in announcing the indictment Friday, dismissed the notion that the Perry investigation was driven by...

    Haidar previously charged with making threatening calls to gun company ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, N.C. —A man was jailed under a $1 million bond after deputies allege he threatened to kill a Triad judge who held him in contempt Wednesday. Jihad Abou Haidar, 39, of Monroe, had appeared in Rockingham County District Court on charges of making threatening and harassing phone calls to Remington Arms in Mayodan August 23. Haidar bought a gun from Remington Arms in Mayodan and claimed there was a problem with it, said Deputy Kevin Suthard. When the manufacturer examined the gun and found no problems, Haidar then...
  • Why did Judge Smith lecture Obama? Because he simply ignored a court order the judge had approved.

    Most lawyers trying a case abide by the maxim: Don’t piss off the judge. President Obama disregarded that when he lectured the Supreme Court not to overturn the health care law. Indirectly the President was challenging the entire judiciary and it struck a raw nerve with Judge Jerry Smith, of the 5th Circuit Appeals Court. Judge Smith had, less than two years earlier rejected, in a 2 to 1 decision, the Interior Department request to stay a lower court order lifting the offshore drilling moratorium (Hornbeck Offshore Services LLC v. Salazar) – thus requiring the moratorium lifted. In one of...

    President Obama, employing his strongest language to date on the Supreme Court review of the federal health care overhaul, cautioned the court Monday against overturning the law -- while repeatedly saying he's "confident" it will be upheld.

    [snip]...Jablonski remained true to his word -- neither he nor Obama showed up for the January 26 hearing. I noted last week that Obama was not scheduled to be anywhere near Atlanta on the date of the hearing, although I had wondered if still, perhaps, Georgia might be on his mind. According to reports in the blogosphere, the president's schedule on the morning of the 26th was open, and according to an unnamed source, Obama watched the live feed of the hearings. Perhaps Obama, as well as the several mainstream media news outlets I spotted at the hearing, were merely...

    It’s an effort already rejected by one judge, but Righthaven LLC of Las Vegas is trying again to avoid paying the legal fees of defendants that defeat Righthaven in court. In court filings Saturday in Denver, Righthaven asked Senior U.S. District Judge John Kane to put six of its copyright infringement cases there on hold, rather than dismissing them on a summary judgment basis.
  • Is Secretary Salazar Above the Law?

    National Legal & Policy Center ^ | March 2, 2011 | Peter Flaherty
    Interior Secretary Ken Salazar appears today before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. He will hopefully answer questions about his refusal to allow deepwater drilling to resume in the Gulf of Mexico, despite a federal judge twice ruling that the moratorium is illegal. The BP oil spill was a disaster, but not as big of a disaster as the moratorium that followed. The granting of exactly one drilling permit to Noble Energy this week underscores just how cynical and politicized Salazar's response has been. Last week, Salazar said that he would not bow to "political pressure" to restart...

    Checks And Balances: A federal judge has told the government it can't implement ObamaCare because it's unconstitutional. Has the White House complied? No, it's knowingly breaking the law. Less than three weeks ago, U.S. District Court Judge Roger Vinson ruled from his Florida courtroom that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act violated the Constitution. No, he didn't order an injunction to shut down enforcement of the law as the plaintiffs had asked. But he did cite a previous case and note that his ruling "is the functional equivalent of an injunction." As if he anticipated the administration ignoring his...

But the Supreme Court would have had the ability to review the whole law anyway....

    Levin makes an interesting point that the Federal Judge today declined to issue an injunction because he didn’t need to. ObamaCare has been declared unconstitutional and the only thing Obama can do at this point is appeal it. And if chooses not to respect the court’s decision from today and continues to implement the law, Levin says the litigants should go right back in front of the Judge and file a contempt order: (Audio at Link)

    Troubled Lindsay Lohan late Wednesday protested that her controversial obscene manicure "had nothing to do with court" -- as speculation mounted that the marking could lead to a separate charge for contempt. At Tuesday's hearing, during which a sobbing Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail for drug and alcohol offenses, the movie star displayed a not-so-subtle message -- “f*** u” -- scrawled on her middle fingernail, made clearly visible thanks to photographers’ telephoto lenses. Lohan's choice of nail design led to a sea of speculation into the starlet's true level of remorse and could lead to a contempt...

    A decorated ex-cop who claimed he tested positive for cocaine because he ingested the drug during oral sex with his girlfriend can't have his job back, a Manhattan judge has ruled. Supreme Court Justice Eileen Rakower last month shot down helicopter pilot Jon Goldin's attempt to overturn his April 2008 dismissal from the NYPD. Goldin, a 15-year veteran, tested positive for cocaine in October 2006 in a random drug test using hairs from his arm. Goldin's lawsuit said the cocaine in his system was the product of "passive ingestion" from performing oral sex on girlfriend Coreen McCarthy, who, once he...

    Depending on where you land on this issue, this is either a judge who is abusing power by miscarrying justice, or he is a judge who absolutely rules (both figuratively and literally).I could venture out on a limb and say that opinions here probably - I say probably - break along political lines in principal.However, in this case, I think the debate should rightly focus on degree.It is certainly up for debate.Either way, this is one jurist who really doesn't take a lot of (expletive) in his courtroom.He's not quite a hanging judge, but close enough.Ohio Judge Robert Ruehlman, for...
