… yep , More E – Mail trouble for Miz Hillary [#ap]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 14th,2016

.. except that it gets worse ..

.. this time it is from the Associated Press . Yes , the wire service ..

.. they are only asking for 60 e – mails . Just 60 . But it has taken the bureaucratic dummies at State more than 2 years to even find just a few of them . no , they have not yet found a majority of them , yet …

.. except now that the AP is getting pissed , and they have sued under the F.O.I.A. doctrine . With the beefed – up legal doctirine that FOIA has , State must move , and move mush faster ..

.. they had better . The case is now before a federal district judge , and the AP drew a hard case , Richard Leon , a Dubya appointee . Leon is pissed at the State Department , and is taking no crap . He has them on tight deadlines , and will brook no excuses …

… Bombshell ! update [#Fast and Furious]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 14th,2014

.. well , someone finally called out the ObamaCraps ..

.. unfortunately , it was not Congress .

.. the Congressional subpoena is still pending . After that , AG Holder was cited for contempt for a second time . Also , the House brought suit in the US District Court to enforce the committee subpoena . At least as of now , there has been no news notice of the court filing …

.. [link] to the judicial news …

.. Judge Bates [by the way , a Bush 43 appointee] has ruled that the Holder Department of Injustice and the ObamaCrap Administration has to produce what is known as a ” Vaughn Index . ” A Vaughn Index shows the identity and short form of the content of documents that are being withheld under a claim of privilege . With the court order , especially with the F.O.I.A. case , the Judge has determined , within limits , that the privilege claim is tetantively a ” crock of [bleep] . ” So , the ObamaCraps have a serious problem …

.. usually a Vaughn Index is dealt with under ” seal . ” So , it will still be a while before we know anything about what the ObamaCrap Administration is playing ” fast and cute ” about . I wonder what is so ” white hot ” that they felt that they had to withhold it …

.. if Judge Bates allows either the index or the docs out into the public domain , this could get real interesting , folks . Fast ! …

… Now the IRS has a Very Serious Problem [#IRSGate]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 16th,2014

.. that is for sure ..

.. also , Judicial Watch has struck again .

.. [h/t — Yahoo.com/News]..
.. [link] to the news story ….

.. Judge Emmett Sullivan is a hard ass . He will not take any guff . When Judicial Watch brought a F.O.I.A. suit for the emails [Lerner’s], I knew that the Service had a very serious problem . Now , with the continued emergence of Lerner e – mails in drip-drip-drip , she looks guilty as sin …

.. and Eric Holder looks like a corrupt bastard ..

.. Judge Sullivan has order the Service to start coughing up e – mails . That is the underlying text of his order this day [Thursday 07/10/2014].. He does not believe the Service , anymore than I do …

.. Those e – mails are there . It is only a matter of time before they come out . Either Judicial Watch ‘ s FOIA lawsuit will pull them out , or True the Vote ‘ s suit , but the digging is underway …

.. even better than a special master , Judge Sullivan has appointed his magistrate to oversee the situation . Federal Judges do not magistrates wasting their time , so the magistrate will be able to apply plenty of pressure to the Service . Also , with the Judge ‘ s blessing , he / she will have plenty of room to run and roam ….

.. more than likely , Sullivan is well aware of other legal action seeking the same information [A.C.L.J. / Cleta Mitchell , principally] . So , it is likely that there is more than one judge applying pressure , as well as more than one appeals circuit [D.C. , 4th , 2nd, 6th] . That is a lot of firepower .

.. Also , Sullivan is an institution in D.C. . He is well known by the folks in D.C. . The Service does not want a pissing match with him . The D.C. Appeals Court is in the same building , while the 4th Circuit is located down in Richmond . Also , do not forget the Supreme Court …

.. it will be fun to see the media coverage of this , given Judicial Watch ‘ s recent history . Tom Fitton is straight – laced and quite , and is not a publicity hound . He lets his work do the talking …
