    Ever since the Attorney General made it crystal clear that President Trump really wasn’t kidding when he said he would cut off DoJ funding to sanctuary cities, the response has been frantic. More than a dozen cities and counties, along with the state of California, have begun legal action challenging the right of the federal government to determine what the qualifications are to receive such grant money. Most of them will take quite a while to sort out, but the City of Richmond, California was one of the first out of the gate and managed to get their case...

      The Department of Justice has ended its Obama-era Operation Chokepoint initiative, which aimed to block some businesses, including firearm dealers and payday lenders, from having access to bank loans. The department made the revelation in response to an inquiry from House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte Thursday. In a letter to Goodlatte and ranking committee member John Conyers, Assistant Attorney General Stephen F. Boyd wrote that DOJ considers Operation Chokepoint a “misguided initiative conducted during the previous administration.” The news was first reported by Politico. “We share your view that law abiding businesses should not be targeted simply for...

By his own admission, he created and then leaked memos to ensure that a special counsel would be appointed to investigate President Trump. It looks as if Comey broke government rules and laws as part of his machinations. Special Counsel Mueller is unlikely to investigate his friend Comey, and so it is up to your Judicial Watch...

    The FBI has "reopened" its consideration of a request for records on the infamous 2016 tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, the group behind that request told Fox News. American Center for Law and Justice President Jay Sekulow called the development a positive sign, in an interview Wednesday on Fox & Friends. Sekulow said the FBI sent him a letter saying it had reopened his Freedom of Information Act request for documents related to the June 2016 meeting. At first, the FBI and DOJ said they did not have documents detailing the tarmac meet-up,...

    WASHINGTON Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Monday that the evil attack in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend meets the legal definition of an act of domestic terrorism, an early declaration in an investigation after a car plowed into a crowd of protesters. It does meet the definition of domestic terrorism in our statute, Mr. Sessions said on ABCs Good Morning America, referring to a fatal attack on Saturday when a vehicle drove into a crowd protesting white nationalists, killing one woman and injuring others. A 20-year-old man has been arrested and charged by Virginia authorities with second-degree murder,...

    Media Bias: Journalists rushed to the defense of two reporters after President Trump accused them of being "reluctant to cover" the scandalous tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. But a review of the entire cache of email exchanges inside the Justice Department at the time shows that Trump has it right. Trump was referring to email exchanges between Justice public affairs officials and reporters from The New York Times and the Washington Post. The emails were among the 400-plus pages of internal emails that flew around at Justice soon after a local Phoenix reporter happened to...

    When we last checked in on newly released information regarding that infamous tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton, we learned that the media wasnt terribly interested in discussing the matter any more than absolutely necessary. But as reporters continue to dig through the trove of Justice Department emails obtained by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, we find out that there were some people who were very interested in talking. The people in question would be Lynchs staff and they were having a flurry of discussions with...

    Our federal lawsuit against the DOJ bureaucracy over the secret meeting between former Attorney General Lynch and former President Clinton has already unearthed documents proving the FBI lied that it had no documents, that the media was colluding with the Obama DOJ to bury the story, and that AG Lynch (AKA Elizabeth Carlisle) was using a secret email address to conduct official business. Now weve uncovered that the White House was involved. On the afternoon of June 29, 2016, two days after the Clinton-Lynch meeting, senior DOJ officials forwarded an email containing a transcript of AG Lynchs press availability where...

    A federal judge is ordering the State Department to conduct a new search for more Hillary Clinton Benghazi emails, but Judge Andrew Napolitano said the Trump administration is making the same argument that it blasted throughout his presidential campaign. The Trump State Department and the Trump Justice Department sent the same lawyers into this judge to make the same arguments that had been made for four years during the Obama years, that weve already searched and we are not going to search anymore, Judge Napolitano said during an appearance on FOX Business.

    The American Center for Law and Justice founded by President Trumps new lawyer Jay Sekulow has uncovered collusion beyond anything ever documented in the history of government. I have heard so many times a cover-up could not occur, because too many people would have to be involved. That is the excuse given in so many cases to influence the public to disbelieve in cover-ups. In this case it proves that many people will work together in different areas of government agencies and media outlets, in fact, to cover-up and collude to protect a higher-up. The American people must upgrade their...

    The Justice Department has reopened the investigation of Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified material on her private email system while she was secretary of state, and is considering offering her a plea bargain if she will agree to plead guilty to charges of breaking the law, according to a Clinton attorney. The discussion of a plea bargain took place late last month and was offered by a high-ranking Justice Department official to the Clinton lawyer. During the exploratory talks with the prosecutor, the Clinton attorney was told that despite former FBI Director James Comey's decision last July not to prosecute...

    There are already so many layers of truth involved in government interactions, that adding to them does nothing for either transparency or trust in the people who ostensibly keep us safe. In a 413 page document handed over to Judicial Watch via a Freedom of Information request, there are included emails from former AG Loretta Lynch using an alias: Elizabeth Carlisle. Apparently this is in no way illegal, and in fact Lynchs predecessor, Eric Holder, also used an alias; his was Lew Alcindor, (Kareem Abdul-Jabbars given name). But if it is not illegal, it is at the very least ethically...

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established a practice in recent years that allows the agency to create its own de facto power of the purse, according to a report from the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) released Tuesday. The EPA and Department of Justice (DOJ) force private companies and individuals to fund policies and initiatives that the agencies and president support but that Congress has not weighed-in on, or may even have voted against in the past.

    Miami announced Friday it will receive a government grant because it has ended its sanctuary city policy. The Hill reported Acting Assistant Attorney General Alan Hanson sent Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez a letter that said the city is now eligible for Department of Justice grants based on its enforcement of federal immigration laws. The website cited a memo Gimenez then sent to the Miami Board of County Commissioners as saying the city will receive $481,347 in Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) grants. Miami-Dade County commissioners voted in February to uphold the city's decision to enforce federal...

    Shortened title. Full title: Rod Rosenstein: Mueller needs to come to me if he wants to chase any crime outside scope of Russia probe If special counsel Robert Mueller finds any crime outside the scope of the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, then he'll have to seek permission, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Sunday. "Bob Mueller understands and I understand the specific scope of the investigation, and so no, it's not a fishing expedition," he told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday." Rosenstein appointed Mueller to oversee the federal Russia probe, which includes a...

    On August 4, the American Center for Law and Justice obtained over 400 pages of documents related to Attorney General Loretta Lynchs infamous tarmac meeting with Former President Bill Clinton last summer. When the original Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request was filed under the Obama Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation had denied that any such records existed; now, approximately 413 pages of documents have been made available to the public. The ACLJ explains: "First, the Comey FBI lied to us. Last July, we sent FOIA requests to both the Comey FBI and the Lynch DOJ asking for any...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said on Sunday that the special counsel investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election needs permission from the Department of Justice to expand his investigation if he finds evidence of an unrelated crime. In an interview with Fox News Sunday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russia's role in the 2016 campaign and President Donald Trump's campaign's potential ties to Russia was "not a fishing expedition."

    It's been just a little over a year since the tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch - the one in which they merely discussed grandchildren. Shortly after the meeting, the American Center for Law and Justice submitted a FOIA request to the Comey FBI requesting any documents relating to the meeting but were told that "no documents responsive to your request were found."What a difference a year makes.It turns out that hundreds of pages of documents existed, and they reveal a shocking coordination between the FBI and DOJ to downplay the meeting and the efforts of...
