    In scathing remarks criticizing his own staff, Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday that the Justice Department has recently acted "more like a trade association for federal prosecutors than the administrator of a fair system of justice" and equated some prosecutors to preschoolers and "headhunters."

    Another day, another Deep State participant outed. ICIG Michael Atkinson altered the whistleblower form to allow for second-hand information, which allowed suspected Schiff whistleblower Eric Ciaramella to present a bogus accusation on the President. Atkinson also oversaw the FBI lovers who altered the FISA warrant. This will soon be reported in the DOJ IG’s FISA Abuse report. Today we point out that Atkinson’s wife is connected to Fusion GPS. What a mess! Last weekend we learned from another leak to the Washington Post, that an individual in Obama’s FBI altered documents that provided support for a FISA Warrant obtained to...
  • Judge Orders Ethics Training For Michael Flynn’s Former Lawyers

    In yet another surprise development in the Michael Flynn case, on Tuesday Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered Flynn’s former Covington and Burling lawyers to appear in court to receive a lecture on ethics from the senior legal ethics counsel for the District of Columbia Bar. While Sullivan’s order expressed concern only over Covington and Burling’s delay in providing Flynn’s new attorney, Sidney Powell, access to his complete legal file, given recent revelations, one must wonder whether Sullivan is equally concerned that a conflict of interest existed in Covington and Burling’s representation of Flynn. Tuesday’s order followed a briefing by Powell and...

    SANTA FE – The state Attorney General’s Office employs two lawyers funded by a New York University center established to promote clean energy and environmental laws – an arrangement slammed by a group supporting New Mexico’s energy industry. Matt Baca, a spokesman and senior counsel for the attorney general, said the lawyers are managed exclusively by New Mexico officials, not by the NYU School of Law, which pays their salaries. But the practice has drawn criticism from Power the Future, an advocacy group for energy workers, and the American Tort Reform Association, which has described the arrangement nationally as an...

  • State Bar's Mandatory Unions for Attorneys are Finally Being Dismantled

    03/18/2019 1:02:55 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | March 18, 2019 | Rachel Alexander
    An effort started a few years ago to eliminate the union-like, mandatory nature of state bars. These associations have become increasingly politicized, spending members’ dues for partisan purposes that always go against Republicans. This is illegal, since the 1990 Supreme Court decision Keller v. State Bar of California decision held that mandatory members of state bar associations have a First Amendment right not to subsidize political or ideological activities. Additionally, in the 27 states with right-to-work laws, attorneys aren’t supposed to be required to join a union in order to practice law. In order to practice their profession, attorneys should be required...

    At last count more than 1,700 law professors have signed an open letter complaining that Judge Brett Kavanaugh “displayed a lack of judicial temperament” in responding to uncorroborated sexual assault accusations against him. In his 12 years on the federal bench, Judge Kavanaugh has produced ample evidence of his judicial temperament. If anyone’s temperament should be of concern to these professors, it’s that of their students, enthralled by identity politics and victim ideology. Immediately after President Trump nominated Judge Kavanaugh in July, hundreds of Yale law students, alumni and faculty signed a petition claiming the nomination presented an “emergency ....

    NEW YORK (AP) — The latest on sexual harassment allegations at Fox News (all times local): An attorney for a former Fox News contributor is calling for an independent investigation of sexual harassment allegations against host Bill O’Reilly. Lisa Bloom represents Wendy Walsh, a former Fox News contributor who says she lost a segment on “The O’Reilly Factor” after she refused to go to O’Reilly’s bedroom following a 2013 dinner in Los Angeles.

    California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters complained that Barrack Obama didn’t get rid of Bush-era U.S. attorneys fast enough back in May of 2009. Maxine Waters: “As we understand it, the protocol has been that U.S. attorneys hand in their resignations and would give the new administration an opportunity to make new appointments, we don’t see that happening quite fast enough.” The fake news media has been wringing their hands over Sessions’ request for Obama-era attorneys to resign as if it’s something that has never been done before. This was standard operating procedure after Obama became President. They also failed to...
  • Jeff Sessions’s Firing of 46 Obama-Appointed U.S. Attorneys Isn’t Scandalous

    In March 1993, Janet Reno began her tenure as President Bill Clinton’s attorney general by summarily firing United States attorneys for 93 of the 94 federal districts (one, Michael Chertoff, was retained in New Jersey, at the request of Democratic Senator Bill Bradley). That is more than twice as many as Trump attorney general Jeff Sessions fired on Friday. Indeed, there were only 46 Obama-appointed U.S. attorneys left for Sessions to relieve because Obama appointees fully understood that this is the way things work. Many of them had already moved on, in the expectation that the president elected in...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions requested the resignations of Obama holdovers in the Department of Justice. Predictably, the Dishonest Media went crazy. Liberals said there’s something bad behind this. They said Trump must be wanting to stop corruption investigations. They said this is an affront to everything everyone holds dear. Here’s one example about Preet Bharara from CNN: Preet Bharara is known for his fierce pursuit of insider trading and corruption cases. Now, he's out. — CNN (@CNN) March 11, 2017 The problem is: Firing U.S. Attorneys is a normal thing. It’s a normal thing to replace U.S. Attorneys....

    In a move that will likely provoke further media, and pundit, fury, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked all remaining Obama-appointed U.S. Attorneys for their resignation. Sarah Isgur Flores, Director of Public Affairs at the Department of Justice, released the following statement: "As was the case in prior transitions, many of the United States Attorneys nominated by the previous administration already have left the Department of Justice. The Attorney General has now asked the remaining 46 presidentially appointed U.S. Attorneys to tender their resignations in order to ensure a uniform transition. Until the new U.S. Attorneys are confirmed, the dedicated...

    Top lawyers who helped the Obama White House craft and hold to rules of conduct believe President Donald Trump and his staff will break ethics norms meant to guard against politicization of the government — and they’ve formed a new group to prepare, and fight. United to Protect Democracy, which draws its name from a line in President Barack Obama’s farewell address that urged his supporters to pick up where he was leaving off, has already raised a $1.5 million operating budget, hired five staffers and has plans to double that in the coming months. They’ve incorporated as both a...
  • How State Bars Are Taking Down Conservative Attorneys

    07/05/2016 7:05:46 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 28 replies ^ | July 5, 2016 | Rachel Alexander
    State bars across the country have become havens for the left in recent years, increasingly used to target conservative attorneys. With deep pockets — due to the exorbitant amount of dues they charge attorneys in order to practice law — it is impossible to fight back once targeted. More than half of state bars are mandatory, which means they are unavoidable if you want to practice law. This is very disturbing, considering many of these states have right-to-work laws. Why are attorneys required to join a union? Arizona has one of the most corrupt state bars in the country. Many...

    Ask Jason Fraser how many jobs he applied for after graduating from a St. Petersburg law school last year and this is what he says: “Maybe 10 or 20 when it was some place I wanted to work. Maybe 50 when I started getting desperate.’’ After searching as far afield as Ocala and Miami, Fraser finally landed a public defender’s post in Pasco County in June. But his months of job-hunting raises another question, one that nags at many in the legal profession: Does Florida have too many lawyers? Since 2000, the number of licensed attorneys has swollen from 60,900...
