    The judge appointed by Barack Obama who put Paul Manafort in jail this week previously cleared Hillary Clinton of responsibility for the deaths of four American servicemen in Benghazi, Libya in 2012. Manafort was put in jail for allegedly engaging in witness tampering, but most people see the jailing as a fraud to divert public attention away from the IG report that slammed James Comey and bolstered President Donald Trump’s arguments against the corrupt Deep State. Amy Berman Jackson, a past Bill Clinton donor and federal judge, threw out a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton filed by Sean Smith’s mother...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller filed a superseding indictment Friday against former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort, and added Russian citizen Konstantin Kilimnik as a defendant. The superseding indictment lodged by a grand jury sitting in federal court in Washington, DC, came days after Mueller asked the judge in Manafort's case to revoke his bail and jail him because of an alleged effort to tamper with witnesses. This is a breaking news story. Please check back for updates.

    President Trump must be deposed in a defamation lawsuit brought last year by a former contestant on "The Apprentice," a judge in Manhattan ruled Tuesday. In a court order, Judge Jennifer Schechter set a Jan. 31, 2019, deadline for both parties to be deposed in the lawsuit, the New York Post reported. The parties also now face a July 13 deadline to issue requests for documents in the case. The lawsuit brought by Summer Zervos, a former contestant on "The Apprentice," alleges that Trump defamed her by publicly claiming she had fabricated claims that Trump groped and kissed her without...

    Judge Timothy Feeley must go Massachusetts judge is a menace to society By Jeffrey T. Kuhner Liberal judges in Massachusetts are out of control. They pose a mortal danger to public safety, and need to be reined in. Exhibit A is Salem Superior Court Judge Timothy Feeley. He has blood on his hands. Feeley ruled Tuesday that a notorious local drug dealer, Manuel Soto-Vittini, will not serve any time in prison despite pleading guilty to charges of drug possession with intent to distribute. In particular, Salem police officers arrested Soto-Vittini in June 2015. They found over 40 small bags of...

    2016 was a tough year for Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz as she was plagued with controversy, and now a judge has ruled that the elections supervisor, Brenda Snipes, in Broward county broke federal and state law by unlawfully destroying ballots that were cast in the primary race that Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz won. The case was brought by Wasserman Schutlz’s opponent who wanted to investigate voting irregularities. As a result, Governor Rick Scott has announced that he’ll be reviewing the Judge’s order and that her office will be monitored. In a written statement, Scott’s office explained that “During the upcoming election,...

    Deepest blow yet to Trump’s phaseout ....Judge John D. Bates’s ruling would require a full restart, meaning even illegal immigrant “Dreamers” who’d never been approved before would now be able to apply for DACA.... judge imposed a 90-day delay on his own ruling to give the government a chance to reargue its case, but for now the ruling stands as the most severe blow yet to Mr. Trump’s phaseout. Judge Bates said the government’s reasoning for revoking DACA wasn’t convincing enough, and so it amounted to an “arbitrary and capricious” decision, which makes it illegal under the Administrative Procedures Act....

    Well, the battle over what to do for recipients enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals has been thrown back into the frying pan. Like crabgrass, this issue keeps arising—and causing headaches for the Trump administration. The Trump White House decided to gradually phase out the constitutionally questionable program, effectively rescinding an executive order issued by former President Obama. Yet, politically, they couldn’t leave almost one million illegal aliens subject to immediate deportation; the political consequences would be too great. So, they added in a six-month enforcement delay, affording Congress time to pass a DACA fix. In other words,...

Kimba Wood...Kimba Wood...where have I heard that name before?  Well, look at this.  She was Bill Clinton's second choice to be attorney general, after the Zoe Baird nomination blew up.  Kimba's blew up, too, because she forgot to tell the White House she had employed an illegal as a nanny. Is this amazingly great luck for the Mueller-U.S. attorney tag team or what? But don't be downhearted.  Judge Wood has it all doped out: "I have faith in the Southern District U.S. Attorney's office that their integrity is unimpeachable," Judge Wood said.  Remember...

    His pockets were packed with purloined panties. More disturbing details emerged Friday about the pervy Long Island judge accused as a serial underwear snatcher after his arrest for raiding the hamper of an East Islip neighbor. Robert Cicale, when busted for grabbing the undies of his 23-year-old former intern, was carrying a raincoat — its pockets filled with additional panties, authorities said. “He indicated in his confession that he has urges to steal women's underwear,” said Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini. “It's a strange set of facts.” Prosecutors, without identifying anyone, said the investigation had turned up five victims...
  • A Prominent Liberal Judge From The 9th Circuit Court Has Died At 87

    Judge Stephen Reinhardt of the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has died, a court spokesperson confirmed. He was 87. A liberal champion, Reinhardt was appointed to the bench by President Carter in 1980. He authored key liberal court opinions on hot-button topics ranging from abortion and marriage equality to assisted suicide and immigration. At the same time, the opinions made him a target of criticism from conservative corners — and of regular reversal from the Supreme Court.

    It happened on 15 September, 2017. An Illinois Judge, Patrick O'Shea, 67, accidentally fired a short barreled Smith & Wesson five-shot in his apartment in Wheaton, Illinois. The bullet went through a mirror, the wall, and into the next apartment. No one was hit, and there was little property damage. He checked to see if anyone was in the apartment. There was not. He may have thought “No harm, no foul”, and proceeded to attempt to lie his way out of the problem. Big mistake. It changed his life. From dailyherald.com: On Sept. 24, the neighbors told police they...

    Full title**Calif. judge bars LA from enforcing gang restrictions that authorities credited with reducing crime The city of Los Angeles has been barred from enforcing the vast majority of its gang injunctions, which applied restrictions on gang associations that authorities have long credited with reducing crime. The ruling Thursday by U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips, an appointee of former President Bill Clinton, agreed with the American Civil Liberties Union that the injunctions were likely to be unconstitutionally broad, and affect people who did not have adequate opportunity to challenge them in court. The gang injunctions are civil court orders...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer voted against one of President Trump’s judicial nominees simply because he is a white male. “The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum [the judicial nominee] speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary,” Schumer said on the Senate floor Wednesday. “Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African-American.” The Democratic leader lamented the fact that the majority of Trump’s nominees were white. Regardless of Quattlebaum’s qualifications, Schumer thought he was unfit for the job due to his race.

    A DuPage County judge who fired a bullet through his apartment wall and into a unit next door was acquitted Friday of misdemeanor reckless conduct charges. The case against Patrick O’Shea was tossed out at the midpoint of trial by Kane County Judge Keith Johnson. The judge agreed with O’Shea’s attorney, Terry Ekl, that prosecutors had failed to meet their legal burden of proof and filed a complaint against O’Shea that was legally deficient. “There was no evidence that there was anyone even in the building when the gun went off, so it could not be reckless conduct, and he...

    WASHINGTON – A federal judge Donald Trump once denigrated for his “Mexican” heritage handed a big legal victory to the president on Tuesday by green-lighting his border wall with Mexico. US District Judge Gonzalo Curiel ruled in favor of the Trump Administration in lawsuits that challenged the environmental waivers for the wall granted by the Department of Homeland Security. The Trump administration praised the legal victory and touted the effectiveness of border walls in stopping drugs and people from illegally crossing into the United States. “Simply put – walls work,” the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement. “(DHS)...
