  • SCOTUS Arguments Don’t Bode Well For DOJ Prosecutors Pushing J6 Obstruction Charges

    The Federalist ^ | 4/17/24 | LESLIE MCADOO GORDON
    The Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday morning in the case of Fischer v. United States, one of the many criminal cases arising out of the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol. Like defendants in a large subset of those cases, Joseph Fischer was charged, among other offenses, with obstruction of an official proceeding under 18 U.S.C. 1512(c)(2). Fischer’s case in the Supreme Court challenges whether the events of that day can be prosecuted using this obstruction statute. Most of the justices seemed dubious, or at a minimum concerned, about the Department of Justice’s very broad interpretation of the...

    Conservative justices seem skeptical Tuesday about Justice Department arguments before the high court on the agency having used felony obstruction charges on over 300 people involved in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot. The case is titled Fischer v. United States. The plaintiff is Joseph Fischer who has been charged with "obstructing" an official proceeding – Congress' certification of the 2020 election results. Justice Clarence Thomas questioned the department attorney on whether the use of such charges have been applied in other protests, according to CNN. "There have been many violent protests that have interfered with proceedings," Thomas reportedly said....

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, America First Legal (AFL) and Boyden Gray PLLC filed a brief in the Supreme Court of the United States on behalf of Senator Tom Cotton, Representative Jim Jordan, and 21 other Members of Congress in support of Joseph W. Fischer, an American who was subjected to a weaponized criminal prosecution by the Biden Administration for an alleged violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1512(c)(2). Mr. Fischer was indicted for his alleged participation in events around the entrance of the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, 2021, and charged with a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1512(c)(2)–a statute...
  • Government Opposes AJ Fischer's Novel J6 Change of Venue Request

    UncoverDC ^ | 1/29/24 | Wendi Strauch Mahoney
    On Jan. 25, after two extensions, the Government argued that AJ Fischer "fails to establish that 'he cannot obtain a fair and impartial trial'" in the District of Columbia. UncoverDC spoke briefly with Fischer, who says the Government barely looked at the research he provided to prove juror bias in the District. According to Fischer, it may be that the "DOJ cannot find an expert to disprove the research" that underpins the arguments in his case. Fischer plans to file for an extension to respond. [embedded tweets] One of the most challenging hurdles J6 defendants must overcome in their D.C....

    The Blaze ^ | January 16, 2024 | Dave Urbanski
    Just-released U.S. Capitol closed-circuit TV video clips from Jan. 6, 2021, show Capitol Police Special Agent David Lazarus gave false testimony in the Oath Keepers trial, Blaze Media investigative journalist Steve Baker reported. What's the background? Baker penned an analysis in October calling into question Lazarus' testimony — which helped convict the Oath Keepers — noting that time-stamped CCTV videos Blaze News observed show Lazarus in other parts of the Capitol complex at the time he said he witnessed now-former Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn interacting with Oath Keepers on Jan. 6. Baker and others could view the Jan. 6...

    Documentarian Ford Fischer rediscovered some video from the riot on Jan. 6 that’s raising a lot of questions. It also puts a big crimp in the narrative of the Jan. 6 Committee. He has a picture and video of Capitol Police Lieutenant Tarik Johnson leading Oathkeepers into the building, then wearing a MAGA hat and yelling into a bullhorn, leading more of them out. *** Now, this has been reported before, albeit not widely. But Johnson said he appealed to Oathkeepers who were outside to help get some of his fellow officers out who were trapped in the building. Where...

    SALT LAKE CITY — A federal jury Thursday in Washington decided Utah activist John Earle Sullivan didn’t just document the U.S. Capitol riot, he was a participant.The jury convicted Sullivan of all seven counts, according to investigative reporter Jordan Fischer. That includes three charges related to carrying a weapon – a knife – and counts accusing him of interrupting Congress as it voted to certify the U.S. presidential election on Jan. 6, 2021.According to Fisher, the judge ordered that Sullivan be held in custody while he awaits sentencing.Weapons charges like what Sullivan was convicted of have sent other Jan. 6...

    VIDEOFord Fischer, editor-in-chief of News2Share, has covered the Patriot Front quite a bit during their Washington D.C. marches since all the way back in February 2020. However, the same Mr. Fischer by AMAZING "coincidence" just so happened to be all the way across the country in Coer d'Alene Idaho on the same day as the arrests of 31 members of the Patriot Front. Really? Perhaps in his next interview Fischer can explain that amazing coincidence. Perhaps Joe Rogan or Jimmy Dore could interview him to solve the mystery of how Fischer happened to be in exactly the right place at...

    WLKY ^ | August 20, 2020
    Fischer said "there will be a lot of things going on in the city that day" and that's why he wasn't planning on attending the Derby at this point. Fischer's decision comes days after several groups have announced their plans to hold demonstrations on Derby day, including at the racetrack. One of those groups, the "Not F------ Around Coalition," or NFAC, announced last week it would be bringing its armed Black militia to the Derby if there is no decision on the Breonna Taylor investigation by Attorney General Daniel Cameron's office.

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Members of Louisville’s Metro Council have asked Mayor Greg Fischer to step down from office. A resolution asking for his resignation was filed Monday morning. It was sponsored by several council members who said they feel frustrated with Fischer’s handling of the protesting and rioting; sky-rocketing numbers of homicides, shootings and car-jackings; a lack of transparency about the Breonna Taylor case and the problems with the city’s police department, among other issues.

    Never mind the negotiations with Iran over the Islamic Republic's nuclear weapons program. Far more urgent developments are afoot. While the foreign ministers were busily counting how many centrifuges could spin in Iranian facilities, President Obama and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei have arranged a working relationship throughout the Middle East that effectively puts American policy at the service of Iran.Long the goal of Obama, who sent a private emissary to Tehran as early as the 2008 election campaign to tell the Khamenei regime he wanted to be their friend, there is now a de facto alliance between the two...

    Federal Reserve vice chair Stanley Fischer is resigning from his post at the central bank effective in mid-October, the Fed announced Wednesday. Fischer cited “personal reasons” in his resignation letter to President Donald Trump. Fischer’s term as vice chair was slated to end on June 12, 2018. “It has been a great privilege to serve on the Federal Reserve Board and, most especially, to work alongside Chair [Janet] Yellen as well as many other dedicated and talented men and women throughout the Federal Reserve System,” Fischer wrote.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) are pushing for an amendment to the Constitution to place term limits on lawmakers, arguing the move will help overhaul Washington. "The American people resoundingly agreed on Election Day, and President-elect Donald Trump has committed to putting government back to work for the American people," Cruz said in a statement on Tuesday. "It is well past time to put an end to the cronyism and deceit that has transformed Washington into a graveyard of good intentions.” Under an amendment the two GOP lawmakers filed on Tuesday, House members would be allowed...

    IRAN is facing an "international conspiracy" to over throw the Khomeinist re gime with a "velvet revolution," the official Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) claimed yesterday. The latest mascot of the plotters is supposed to be Roxana Saberi, a former Miss North Dakota now charged with espionage in Tehran. A US citizen with an Iranian father and a Japanese mother, the 31-year-old Roxana has worked in Iran on and off for years as a freelance reporter. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called for Saberi's immediate release and safe return to the US. IRNA claims that the plot was first...

    The racist Texas State Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer said “GOP” stands for “gringos y otros pendejos” or “white and other *holes” at the State Democratic Convention in Dallas this weekend. This delightful man doubled down on the comments, saying he would tell the Republican Gubernatorial nominee directly what he said to the Democratic audience. “I stand by my words. I did not know Greg Abbott was at the convention to hear me, and if I had known that I would told him directly to his face.” Abbott’s wife is Mexican American, by the way. So what would happen if a...

    Joy Pullman entitles her excellent column on The Federalist this way: "Discrimination Is Healthy And Normal – Sex Confusion Is Not." She begins her piece by pointing out how the left has hijacked a perfectly good word and twisted its meaning: "Discrimination sounds so terrible. Shouldn't people with power stop it in every form? That sounds plausible, but like the other arguments offered by LGBTQ activists (when they offer arguments instead of appeals to emotion), it's wrong and hurtful." She goes on to point out that "non-discrimination" ordinances, which sound so constructive at first blush, are actually "anti-science, anti-reason, and...

    Winger-left blowhard Ed Schultz got a mention on Drudge today, for sending out a Tweet that said, "Gay people were really the ones being persecuted in Hitler's Germany." While 10,000-15,000 homosexuals were likely to have died at Hitler's hands (which is 10,000-15,000 too many), Schultz blithely and blindly ignores the plain historical fact that that number pales in comparison to the six million Jews who were gassed or shot by Hitler's goons. What Schultz overlooks, perhaps out of sheer historical ignorance, is that the persecution of homosexuals in Hitler's Germany was carried out by other homosexuals. Hitler was seeking to...

    A new campaign-trail pledge to vote against any immigration increases took center stage in the Nebraska GOP Senate primary race on Friday, when candidate Shane Osborne slammed his rival for not signing the pledge and also charged him with deception. “Nebraskans are learning that Ben Sasse isn’t the candidate he’s pretending to be [and] on the most important issues of the day, from Immigration to ObamaCare, Sasse is no conservative,” said a statement from the campaign, only four days before voting begins on Tuesday.
