  • Judge denies Fattah lawyers' bid to withdraw (Dem Rep stiffing lawyers by using money to campaign)

    Quick Summary: Dem Rep. Chaka Fattah is cheating the lawyers defending him in his bribery case by using all of his money to campaign for reelection -- and the Federal judge basically told the lawyers "too bad" A federal judge on Wednesday called U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah's decision to prioritize fund-raising for his reelection campaign above paying his lawyers "particularly unfair" but denied a request from his defense team to withdraw from his corruption case. U.S. District Judge Harvey Bartle III said that though the lawyers had not been fully paid in months, they were aware of the time and...

    Of the remaining Republican presidential candidates, Senator Ted Cruz is the best choice to repair the mess that Eric Holder and Barack Obama have left at the United States Department of Justice. Cruz alone has an understanding of both the corrosive and lawless policies of the last seven years as well as the complex task of restoring the rule of law. Cruz has an outsider’s zeal to reverse Obama’s lawlessness with the insider’s ability to overcome bureaucratic inertia.-snip- If you care about energy, national security, religious liberty, immigration or the power of government, it is the Justice Department lawyers that...

    **SNIP** Yet, in reporting the story, the Times' Mark Mazzetti took pains to stress: "The government has said that Mrs. Clinton is not a subject of the investigation." Really? Well, to put it in Clintonian terms: It all depends on what the definition of "subject" is. Though you wouldn't know it from the Times, "subject" is a term of art in criminal investigations. It refers to one of the three categories into which prosecutors fit every relevant actor. Subjects are people whose conduct is being scrutinized and who, depending on what evidence turns up, may or may not be charged....

    Justice: It's not often that the victims of IRS abuse find satisfaction, but the Tea Party groups mistreated by the tax collector will get a shot. Maybe next will be an audit of the IRS — which apparently hasn't changed its ways. On Tuesday, Day 978 of the unresolved IRS scandal, a federal judge granted class-action status to as many as 300 conservative groups that have been affected by the agency's practice of unduly scrutinizing small-government organizations that sought tax-exempt status but which the IRS saw as dangerous dissidents. U.S. District Court Judge Susan Dlott's ruling also opens the door...

The chief replied, with a twinkle in his eye, that he thought he could probably get a majority of his colleagues to agree that John Roberts was the best Supreme Court advocate in the nation.

    A liberal who's been mugged, it's said, becomes a conservative. But what does a conservative become when he's mugged by a corrupt, politically driven justice system? Dinesh D’Souza's latest book, Stealing America: What My Experience with Criminal Gangs Taught Me About Obama, Hillary, and the Democratic Party answers that question. D'Souza now views the Progressive movement as a criminal enterprise designed to pull off the biggest heist in world history -- effective control of the enormous wealth created by America's entrepreneurs. This bounty, the author argues, was made possible by the country's embrace of a capitalist system that rewards industry...

    The Justice Department will drastically increase the number of attorneys it has on staff to deal with what is expected to be a massive push by President Obama to grant clemency to federal prisoners before the end of his term. The Office of the Pardon Attorney, which handles the federal government's clemency cases, posted a job listing for 16 attorney advisors on the Justice Department's website on Tuesday. The number of expected hires is more than double the agency's staffing level as of May 2013. Then, seven permanent attorneys -- the pardon attorney, a deputy and five staff attorneys --...

    No way do they convict Bill Cosby on these charges. I'm not saying that because I think he's innocent. Obviously he's not. It's just that these kinds of prosecutions almost never succeed -- from Michael Jackson to Errol Flynn all the way back to Fatty Arbuckle. It's easy enough to ruin somebody's reputation with an indictment, but "beyond a reasonable doubt" is a pretty high bar if you're looking to put a guy in jail. Especially a guy who's got more money than God, which certainly describes Bill Cosby. [Snip] I've been rereading all the information on another one of...

    Demonstrating once again that his reputation for cheap demagoguery has been well-earned, Senator Harry Reid this morning took a wild shot at Justice Antonin Scalia. "It is deeply disturbing," Reid suggested, "to hear a Supreme Court justice endorse racist ideas from the bench of the nation's highest court." In advancing this accusation, Reid was boosting a meme that has become popular on the left since yesterday evening. A representative example of its underlying charge can be found today in The Hill: >>>Justice Antonin Scalia surprised the Supreme Court and the public during Wednesday's oral arguments in a case challenging affirmative...

"Of course, we prosecute deeds and not words," she said at a press conference Monday to announce an unrelated civil rights investigation into the Chicago Police Department. Some conservatives criticized Lynch for her comments to a Muslim civil rights group, where she lamented "the ability of people to issue hateful speech of all types from the anonymity of a screen." Speaking to a Muslim Advocates dinner in Arlington, Va., Lynch affirmed that "this is...

    The leftist catchphrase "No Justice, No Peace" is something of a rarity in the progressive phrasebook because it contains a hint of truth. You cannot have a peaceful society without justice an unjust society teeters on the edge of chaos, held in place only by the force deployed by the elite at its head. But thanks to the mindless quest for power by liberals, who heedlessly sacrifice justice for short term advantage, we are fundamentally transforming from a just society into something very different and very dangerous.A just society is one in which outcomes tend toward those commonly understood to...

The Education Management Corporation was sued by the Department of Justice in 2011 for multiple recruitment violations, including paying its recruiters based on the number of students it enrolled, and exaggerating the career opportunities that were available to graduates. The lawsuit argued that the violations made the corporation ineligible for the $11 billion in state and federal financial aid it has...

"The Department of Justice is committed to giving justice-involved youth the tools they need to become productive members of society," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a news release on Monday.

While we often hear the refrain ideas have consequences, too frequently we attribute the decline of the American system to politics or particular political figures, while giving the power of ideas short thrift. But as Walshs important work illustrates, ideas are everything, and if you lose the war of them you lose all of the other battles too. One such idea that has trumped to date deals with...

In reality, however, the tape omits all of the most critical moments of the raid, and corroborates Archers account in many key respects. To the extent it exposes differences between what was recorded and Archers recollection, those differences actually offer slight encouragement to those who wish to see law-enforcement officials obey constitutional mandates. Crucially, the tape omits the beginning of the raid, in which...

DSouzas defense counsel Benjamin Brafman provided evidence to the court that the psychiatrist DSouza was ordered to see found no indication of depression or reason for medication. In addition, the psychologist DSouza subsequently consulted provided a written statement concluding there was no need to continue the consultation, because DSouza was...

    MADISON, Wis. Cindy Archer was once made to beg sheriffs deputies and FBI agents not to shoot her dogs during an early-morning raid on her Madison home. Now the former aide to Gov. Scott Walker who has never been charged with a crime in the Democrat-launched John Doe investigation is fighting back in court. In a Wall Street Journal opinion piece published Tuesday evening, Archer writes that Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm and his agents ransacked her house and ruined her career. After much soul-searching, I am filing a civil-rights lawsuit on Wednesday against Milwaukee County District Attorney...

    The Missouri General Assembly ended its 2015 legislative session about a month ago. This is the state body designed to represent people in towns like Ferguson, which recently convulsed with conflict protests, rioting over the shooting of an unarmed (but, we found out, quite aggressive) young black man by a white policeman. So what did the state politicians do about the situation? Well, the assembly adjourned having passed, The Washington Post reported, virtually none of the changes activists sought in the aftermath of the shooting of Michael Brown. Nothing has changed, acknowledged State Rep. Clem Smith. The Post...

    Based on the recent firestorm surrounding the events in McKinney, Texas, it appears the new normal threshold for demanding swift justice and national condemnation of police officers is a short video clip followed by social media outrage. There is more to the McKinney incident than 20 seconds of video, but it is that image of a white uniformed police officer using force on a black teenage girl which has again inflamed a nation too eager to cry racism when it comes to the work of our cops. The video clip is disturbing taken out of context of the remainder of...

    She personally performed abortions on women, using a bicycle pump, and later boasted that she and her group had personally murdered exactly 10,141 children in the womb. She supports the legalization of euthanasia, the liberalization of drug use, and the legal prohibition of conscience exemptions for doctors who refuse to perform abortion. She even opposes the burial of aborted children in cemeteries. She is Emma Bonino, the radical leftist Italian politician, a member of the Italian Radical Party currently serving, incredibly enough, as Foreign Minister for the corrupt Italian government. And she was greeted warmly days ago by Pope Francis,...

The order would prevent attorneys and witnesses for both sides from releasing information or commenting publicly about the case.
