A federal court is keeping documents justifying an FBI raid on a reportedly recognized whistleblower secret.
Attorneys and whistleblower advocates say the court should disclose whether prosecutors told the judge that Dennis Cain was a whistleblower.
A federal court refused to unseal government documents that permitted the FBI to raid the home of a reportedly recognized whistleblower who, according to his lawyer, delivered documents pertaining to the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One to a presidentially appointed watchdog.
The U.S. District Court of Marylands Chief Magistrate Judge Beth P. Gesner, a Clinton appointee, also sealed her justification for keeping the documents secret in a single-page Dec. 20 order.
On Nov. 15, federal Magistrate Judge Stephanie Gallagher authorized the raid on Dennis Cains Union Bridge, Maryland, home. She sealed the government documents justifying it.
The Daily Caller News Foundation asked Gallagher on Nov. 29 to unseal the documents, noting that Cains attorney has said his client, a former employee of an FBI contractor, is a recognized whistleblower. The documents should be released in light of an urgent public interest surrounding the case, TheDCNF wrote. (EXCLUSIVE: FBI Raids Home Of Whistleblower On Clinton Foundation, Lawyer Says)
Attorneys and experts who defend government whistleblowers told TheDCNF the court should disclose whether prosecutors told Gallagher that Cain was a protected whistleblower under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act.
Cain enjoyed his whistleblower status as early as last summer when he handed over documents to Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, according to Cains lawyer, Michael Socarras. Horowitz instructed a top aide to personally hand-deliver the documents to the House and Senate intelligence committees, the attorney said.
The documents reportedly show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity regarding the Clinton Foundation and Rostam, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One.

We live behind the Iron Curtain now.
America is dead.
“The U.S. District Court of Marylands Chief Magistrate Judge Beth P. Gesner, a Clinton appointee, also sealed her justification for keeping the documents secret in a single-page Dec. 20 order. “
This country sucks.
Good gosh....what is NOT sealed, regarding Klintoon evidence and whistleblowers???
First the Seth Rich info Judge, now this one.
the amount of corruption is staggering. The clintons have done this since 1992. Impressive.
Now proven beyond a shadow of doubt Horowitz is a Deep State Dirtbag. The wait for the IG report flim flam routine was always a slow walking scam.
Ha ha ha, you mean how like McCabe, Yates, Comey, Rosenstein, and Priestap were punished for hiding info from the Judges on those FISA warrants? Who signed the original warrant request?
Unless we see a “SURPRISE” gift of the evidence all wrapped up in court martials and jail sentences, I’m sharpening my scythe and warming up the tar...
This has gone on long enough.
If you are an associate of DJT, you are ruined.
If you are a whistleblower, you are ruined AND should fear for your life.

The President, his staff, Lindsay Graham and Mitch McConnell need to GET BUSY to have more Trump federal judges vetted, nominated and confirmed...SO THAT MORE OF THIS TYPE OF CASE/ACTION IS HANDLED BY TRUMP JUDGES INSTEAD OF LEFTIST DEEP-STATE LOVING JUDGES.
There are MANY, MANY other judicial vacancies that need to gotten to on an URGENT basis. Lindsey Graham needs to spend less time politicking and traveling overseas to interfere with Trumps foreign policy and MORE TIME FOCUSING ON JUDICIAL VACANCIES. Your spending time hobnobbing with Turkeys Islamist leader Erdogan doesnt advance Judicial confirmations, Lindsey!
The President and the Senate need to FILL QUICKLY ALL FEDERAL JUDICIAL VACANCIES. Renominate those who were still pending at the end of the last Congress and vet, recruite, and nominate new candidates for ALL the remaining vacancies. Act like the future of the Nation and the Republic depend upon it...since they may!
We have a large number of ACTUAL federal judicial vacancies. IMHO our HIGHEST PRIORITY needs to be FILLING ALL JUDICIAL VACANCIES EXISTING vacancies.
FOR THIS YEAR Id like to see the Republican Senate and the President work so, by the end of the calendar year, well be able to count the number of remaining judicial vacancies on one hand.
BOTH the Senate and President Trump need to get cracking to QUICKLY fill the MANY VACANCIES on US federal judgeships. There are over 140 vacancies of which around 70 had nominees pending in the last Congress. But there were around 70 for which Trump had not yet submitted nominees.
And there are other judgeships where near-future vacancies are known. These also need nominations in the pipeline.
I hope President Trump (and Lindsey Graham, the new Judiciary Committee Chairman) give this effort the URGENCY it needs.
TIME TO GET MOVING SENATOR GRAHAM!
FOLKS IT IS TIME!
Trump renominated 51 the other day.
YELLOW VEST MOVEMENT AND MORE - THE CIVIL WAR REALLY HAS ALREADY STARTED DON’T YA KNOW IT - HAD TO SAY WE ARE ALL IN DENIAL BUT THEY HAVE STARTED IT ON US!
all nominated 1/23/2019
Agreed. This Country needs the people to take it back from the swamp. Im just waiting for the first protest/demonstration to participate.
Agree....enough is enough.
We need to see the REAL crooks....like KILLary, Comey, Clapper/Brennan, et al raided at dawn, brought up on charges and frogmarched to prison, for their treasonous acts against a country and an opposing candidate.
You may want to remember that one crook protects another and looks the other way when it concerns misdeeds. Unless someone with the ability to clean house comes in and cleans up this cesspool of corruption, so once again equal justice under the law will prevail, I don’t see a very bright future for this country. Just an example, no doubt that many of you remember Lois Lerner at the treasury selecting certain victims who did not follow certain party objectives. From what I know, she probably is still free as a bird, just like our beloved Hillary.
“Cain enjoyed his whistleblower status as early as last summer...”
Sounds like he has really been “enjoying” it. His mistake is thinking F-troop follows the law.
