Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell appeared on Justice with Judge Jeanine with fill-in host Kimberly Guilfoyle, Saturday night. Due to Judicial Watch’s efforts, the IRS will have to face a federal judge in court on July 10, 2014 to explain why the tax agency didn’t inform the court that Lois Lerner’s emails had been lost even though the agency had knowledge of the missing emails and of other IRS officials’ missing emails.
Via Gateway Pundit:
“We’ve been involved in litigation for months now. In fact, the revelations that have come about are because of our litigation to force the IRS to produce records… They never mentioned to us or the court about the supposedly lost emails. So, we forced them into court. They need to appear on July 10… The real problem with the IRS in this case is they’ve been in communication with the court and they have never told the court about these missing or lost emails. So they’ve made what appear to be false and misleading statements to the court about the records themselves and how they’re producing them to us. They’ve pinned themselves in a corner. They are in real trouble.”
Former DOJ attorney Sidney Powell had nothing but high praise for Sullivan in her Friday piece in the NY Observer, calling him “a federal judge who has the integrity and fortitude to seek Justice.”
Turns out, Judge Sullivan is the judge who held federal prosecutors in contempt in the case of the unjust indictment against Senator Ted Stevens, which he dismissed.
Emmet G. Sullivan, a graduate of Howard University and Howard Law who was appointed by President Clinton, is one of the heroes of my new book, Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice. Judge Sullivan ordered an independent investigation of the Department of Justice, which revealed its corrupted prosecution of United States Senator Ted Stevens.
In the book, I write, “An experienced trial judge, Sullivan was a distinguished man and widely held in high regard. He was no ordinary federal judge; he had worked hard all his life on several different courts and had been appointed by three presidents representing both political parties. . . . He had great respect for the rule of law and strived to apply it equally and fairly in all cases in his courtroom.”
In the Stevens case, Judge Sullivan publicly upbraided the government lawyers before an overflow courtroom, “In nearly 25 years on the bench, I’ve never seen anything approaching the mishandling and misconduct that I’ve seen in this case. . . . When the government does not meet its obligations to turn over evidence, the system falters.”
