    Colin Kaepernick’s lawyers will attempt to subpoena President Trump as part of the former quarterback’s collusion case against the NFL. That report comes from sources to Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson, who says the Mark Geragos-led legal team “is expected to seek federal subpoenas in the coming weeks to compel testimonyfrom [President Donald] Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and other officials familiar with the president’s agenda on protesting NFL players.” The purpose of a Trump subpoena, would be to show that the president both improperly influenced owners in their decision to not sign Kaepernick. As Breitbart Sports reported weeks ago, the...

    At what point do public officials need to face professional consequences for their abuses of power? That’s what an attorney in Maryland is asking, and posing serious questions about former FBI Director James Comey’s credentials as a lawyer in the wake of this week’s memo scandal. According to The Washington Times, Ty Clevenger has filed a formal grievance to disbar Comey in New York, where the now scandal-plagued ex-director is licensed by the state bar to practice law. More recently, Democrat President Bill Clinton was disbarred by the state of Arkansas for committing perjury during the Monica Lewinksy scandal. Clevenger...

    WASHINGTON - The Louisiana Supreme Court Friday (May 1) permanently barred former Rep. William Jefferson from practicing law. Jefferson, 68, a Democrat who represented New Orleans in Congress for 12 terms, is serving a 13-year prison sentence in Oakdale for corruption and not scheduled for release until August, 30, 2023, when he would be 76 years old. The Louisiana Supreme Court said in its ruling that it agreed with the unanimous finding of the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board that the conduct of the Harvard-educated lawyer is so egregious that he should not be allowed to return to the practice of...

    Suppose a client walked into my office and told me that police officers in his country had choked a man to death over a petty crime. Suppose he said police fatally shot another man in the back as he ran away. That they arrested a woman during a traffic stop and placed her in jail, where she died three days later. That a 12-year-old boy in his country was shot and killed by the police as he played in the park. Suppose he told me that all of those victims were from the same ethnic community — a community whose...
  • Holder on Gohmert: What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?

    Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States...
  • White House Counsel Robert Bauer: Architect of IRS Abuse? (Gov. Palin especially singled out)

    When the FBI finally fires up its criminal investigation of the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups, there is one person the special agent in charge better be sure to interview — former White House Counsel Robert Bauer. The FBI may discover the whole IRS mess leads through the land of campaign finance “reform” and an obsession with speech regulation, an obsession shared by Bauer. Any criminal investigation identifies for further scrutiny those with motive, opportunity, and means, and Bauer deserves no quarter from FBI investigators on those three counts. The Crimes Without any doubt, crimes were committed by IRS...

    Presidential aides are privately admitting to a growing frustration inside the White House with Attorney General Eric Holder’s political ineptness in the press leak investigations and are hoping the embattled appointee will resign from office, The New York Times reports. “The White House is apoplectic about him, and has been for a long time,” said an anonymous Democrat source, identified only as a former government employee who acknowledged the White House staffers in question are his friends. President Barack Obama’s advisers are frustrated with Holder’s inability to foresee problems arising from his approval of a subpoena naming a Fox News...

    [Click Link for Video] It's very simple: In his warrant application, Holder claimed to be interested in investigating James Rosen as a coconspirator in an espionage case. In addition, he claimed Rosen was a "flight risk," which would justify even closer monitoring. Now he says he never had any intention of prosecuting Rosen. In other words: He now says he lied when he told the judge these things, in order to secure his license to snoop on Rosen. Well, which is it? If he never had any intention of prosecuting Rosen, the warrant application is a fraud on the court....

    During friendly questioning from Rep. Hank “I fear that Guam will capsize!” Johnson in Congress last week, Attorney General Eric Holder offered the following statement. In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material. This is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy. He made that statement before the facts about the sweep on Fox News’ James Rosen were known. Since then, it’s come to light that Holder himself approved the subpoena that, among other things, named Rosen as a criminal co-conspirator.

    “We have a message for Attorney General Holder over at,” read a message from the Huffington Post political Twitter account earlier this evening. The website's home page is one big splash calling for Eric Holder’s exit from the Obama administration, suggesting that the news reported earlier by NBC News was the final straw for liberals who are critical of Obama’s attorney general. NBC News’ Michael Isikoff reported that Holder signed off on the search warrant that identified Fox News reporter James Rosen as a “possible co-conspirator”authorizing seizure of his private emails. The Huffington Post page also highlights Holder’s record...

    DENVER - The inadvertent release of a hearing transcript containing information about the sex life of Kobe Bryant's accuser might tempt the judge to admit that information as evidence to reduce the magnitude of the mistake, the woman's attorney warned. John Clune told District Judge Terry Ruckriegle in a court filing late Monday that he should not let the mistake influence his upcoming decision on whether to allow the information into the trial, scheduled to begin Aug. 27. "Although the victim remains confident that this court will be unaffected by improper motives, the appearance still remains," Clune said. Transcripts of...
