Holder Obama Democrat DOJ Fraud and Corruption

Hat tip S:



Fed Up With Govt Misconduct, Federal Judge Takes Nuclear Option

Federal Prosecutor Alleges Boss Pressured Him To Engage in 'Unethical Conduct'; Judge Calls Abuses 'Egregious,' 'Pervasive,” and “Reprehensible”


Judge Morrison C. England Jr.
Judge Morrison C. England Jr. ordered the entire judiciary recused from a case another judge called “egregious” and “reprehensible”

In perhaps the most stunning documentation yet of abuses by Eric Holder’s Justice Department, two former Assistant United States Attorneys spoke to defense attorneys and revealed appalling deceit and corruption of justice.

This latest litigation time bomb has exploded from multi-million dollar litigation originally brought by the Department of Justice against Sierra Pacific based on allegations that the lumber company and related defendants were responsible for a wildfire that destroyed 65,000 acres in California.

In what was dubbed the “Moonlight Fire” case, the tables are now turned.

The defendants have discovered new evidence and filed a stunning motion. The new evidence and disclosures are being taken seriously by the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California—as they should be.

In a shocking action, Judge Morrison C. England Jr. ordered the recusal of every federal judge in the Eastern District of California.

Sierra Pacific Industries and other defendants were compelled to pay $55 million to the United States over a period of five years and transfer 22,500 acres of land to settle massive litigation brought against them by the United States alleging that they caused a 2007 fire that destroyed 65,000 acres in California.

Sierra Pacific has always maintained that the fire started elsewhere and that the state and federal investigators and Department attorneys lied.

Now that settlement may go up in smoke because of the new evidence of outrageous misconduct by the federal prosecutors and the investigators from state and federal offices, as well as findings earlier this year by a state judge.

In an extraordinary development, Judge England, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, ordered the recusal of all the Eastern District judges from the case because of serious allegations that the Court itself was defrauded by the government in the original prosecution.

To avoid any appearance of partiality, he has referred the case to Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski to appoint a judge from outside the Eastern District to handle the case going forward. Judge Kozinski has excoriated prosecutors for failing to meet their legal and ethical obligations.

The order notes that the defendants filed an action this week to set aside the $55 million settlement because, as the defendants allege, “the United States presented false evidence to the Defendants and the Court; advanced arguments to the Court premised on that false evidence; or, for which material evidence had been withheld, and obtaining court rulings based thereon; prepared key Moonlight Fire investigators for depositions, and allowed them to repeatedly give false testimony about the most important aspects of their investigation; and failed to disclose the facts and circumstances associated with the Moonlight Fire lead investigator’s direct financial interest in the outcome of the investigation arising from an illegal bank account that has since been exposed and terminated.”

The Sacramento Bee reported on the Defendant’s filing. Indeed, the Defendants’ motion informs us that a former Assistant United States Attorney came forward and disclosed that he believes that he was removed from the original prosecution by “his boss, David Shelledy, chief of the civil division in the United States Attorney’s office,” because he “rebuffed” pressure to “engage in unethical conduct as a lawyer.”

Of course, like other former prosecutors who were unethical, Mr. Shelledy is to receive Attorney General Holder’s highest award for excellence—this week.

The defendants also reveal that another former federal prosecutor, Eric Overby, left the Moonlight Fire prosecution team also, stating: “It’s called the Department of Justice. It’s not called the Department of Revenue.”

According to the motion, Mr. Overby told defense counsel that in his entire career, “I’ve never seen anything like this. Never.”

Well, sadly we have, and we’ve been reporting on it as fast as we can.

This is part of a disturbing and rapidly increasing pattern of abuses by this Department of Justice to line government coffers or redistribute the wealth to its political allies—using its overwhelming litigation might and federal agencies as a tool of extortion and wealth redistribution.

The entire original prosecution against Sierra Pacific appears to have been driven by the Department of Justice’s interest in hitting a “deep pocket” for millions of dollars of revenue.

The Defendants’ motion to set aside the settlement reveals a series of fraudulent acts by federal and state authorities that defiles our system of justice.

Dick Beckler, an attorney for the company who used to be at DOJ and is now with Bracewell Giuliani, told the Observer, “Sierra Pacific is looking forward to having its day in court and proving all the facts of the government’s fraud on the court.”

A California state judge, Leslie C. Nichols, in a related state case issued orders earlier this year describing what he called “egregious,” “pervasive,” and “reprehensible” abuses in the investigation and prosecution amounting to “government corruption.”

He found the state case to “betray the primary purpose of the judicial system—to reveal the truth.”

He awarded $32 million in fees and expenses to the Defendants, finding as the Sacramento Bee reports, that the state agency, Cal Fire, “withheld some documents, destroyed other evidence and ‘engaged in a systematic campaign of misdirection with the purpose of recovering money’ from Sierra Pacific.”

It’s encouraging to see Judge England join Judge Emmet G. Sullivan and Judge Bates, and others, as our Article III judges begin to demand that federal attorneys and agents follow the law and their oaths of office.

But there remains a lot more work to do. It’s way past time to hold Holder accountable.

When will the next litigation time bomb and scandal explode on Mr. Holder and this administration?

He can’t run fast enough.

This story has been updated to add comment from Sierra Pacific’s attorney.

Critical Reason to Vote for the Fastest Growing Independent Party Candidate

Solid majority in US says country 'out of control': Poll













865
COMMENTSJoin the Discussion


With just two weeks to go until Election Day, a clear picture of the American electorate is emerging, and it is not pretty, for either party.

The country is anxious about the economy, Ebola and Islamic extremists, and does not really feel Republicans or Democrats have solutions to any of these vexing problems.

A tattered American flag waves from a storefront in Jacksonville, N.C.
The latest Politico Battleground Poll of likely voters in key House and Senate races finds that 50 percent say the nation is "off on the wrong track" while just 20 percent say things are "generally headed in the right direction."

A remarkable 64 percent say things in the U.S. are "out of control" while just 36 percent say the U.S. is in "good position to meet its economic and national security challenges."

The economy continues to dominant the issue landscape with 40 percent rating it the top issue, to 20 percent for national security.

President Barack Obama remains mired in negative territory, with 47 percent approving of his job performance and 53 percent disapproving.

Such an environment would tend to favor Republicans, but their advantage is limited by the fact that people don't like them, either.

In total, 38 percent approve of Democrats in Congress, while just 30 percent approve of Republicans.

On the generic ballot questions, Democrats enjoy 41 percent support (including the independent Senate candidate in Kansas) while Republicans get 36 percent. That's hardly the backdrop for a massive GOP wave, though the polls suggest Republicans are still significant favorites to pick up the six seats they need to control the Senate next year.
 
The Ebola outbreak has clearly helped shape the final weeks in several Senate races, emerging as a significant wild card issue. In the Politico poll, only 22 percent of respondents said they had "a lot of confidence" that the federal government is doing all it can to contain the deadly disease. And the poll finished on Oct. 11, before the hospitalization of a second Dallas nurse.
Market swings matter to politics: Ben White, Politico, discusses how market volatility could impact this year's mid-term elections. 

CNBC contributor Carol Roth doesn't think it has an impact on results.

In North Carolina, where this columnist has been for the last couple of days, state House Speaker Thom Tillis has been slamming incumbent Democrat Kay Hagan for what he calls her flip-flopping on the issue of a travel ban from Ebola-stricken countries.

Sen. Hagan told me after an event on Sunday that her position had not actually changed on a travel ban. "I've always said that a travel ban should be part of a broader use of tactics," she said.

North Carolina Republicans did not buy it, pointing to a news conference in which Hagan said of a travel ban: "That's not going to solve this problem."

However, a Hagan spokeswoman emailed Sunday to note that the news conference clip circulated by Republicans omits a part where Hagan said: "I say we could look at a travel ban as part of a broader [set] of issues and restrictions."

Hagan also said in a debate on Oct. 9: "Ebola is a serious issue. We are working right now with our coalition partners around the world. And we need to eradicate, we need to stop this disease, and we need to contain it. Travel bans should be part of this overall strategy. But it can't be the only part."

Polls suggest the North Carolina race remains deadlocked, and the airwaves across the state are saturated with attack ads from both sides, including heavy spending by outside groups (tilted in favor of Hagan), making this the most expensive Senate race in history.

In fact, the ads are so overwhelming and constant that it is easy to tune them out, as many voters I've spoken with here seem to have done.

The adage in politics is that everyone says they hate negative ads, but they work, and that may be true. Except here, if all you did was watch the ads you would probably grow to loathe both candidates.

Very few voters I've spoken with remain truly undecided. Those who really are tend to be women, often with children.

Several women I spoke with over the last couple days said they were open to Tillis' economic appeal and deeply frustrated with Obama and the Democrats.

But several said they were also turned off by Tillis' sharply negative tone and wanted to hear more about what he would actually do if elected.

Others simply registered disgust with both candidates and with the tenor of the election, which seems to have little to do with the issue voters say they care about most: the economy.

Indeed, in a recent stump speech in Greensboro, Tillis spent much of his time ripping into Hagan for skipping a committee meeting on Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham in favor of a "Park Avenue cocktail fundraiser" and for benefits her husband allegedly reaped from the 2009 stimulus bill that Hagan supported.

He saved a few throwaway lines toward the end for the economy and the need to get rid of burdensome regulations.

Tillis' ads often spent most of their time making Hagan out to be a dangerous Obama clone while Hagan's portray Tillis as a woman hater who would destroy public education.


Taken together, it's not hard to see how all this translates into an electorate that has no real confidence in current leadership to direct the nation onto a stronger course and little hope that this election will bring in a new crop of politicians to make things any better.
