(VIDEO) Sen. Whitehouse (D-RI) Openly Insults Federal Judge who will Rule in Gen. Flynn Case

If you aren’t exactly sure who Sheldon Whitehouse is, he’s the pasty-faced, doughy, somewhat lispy junior US Senator from the great state of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (yes, that’s the full name of the state).

With that aside, Sen. Whitehouse also has somewhat of a habit of pissing off certain high-level federal judges.

Example, as recently reported by The Federalist, Whitehouse filed a brief threatening the SCOTUS to either rule the way he sees fit on a pending case involving firearms and the state of New York, or else.

As reporter William Maurer of The Federalist reports, Whitehouse’s brief is best summed up as “A friendly reminder, like when a mugger tells a witness not to go to police or his legs might break.”

It’s bad enough that Whitehouse has already threatened the Supreme Court, but now he’s going after Judge Neomi Rao of the District of Columbia’s Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals.

As Maurer cites, Judge Rao is (emphasis mine) “one of three judges on the panel that will hear the emergency petition for a writ of mandamus filed by General Michael Flynn. The writ General Flynn is seeking would order the district judge hearing General Flynn’s case — Emmet Sullivan — to grant the motion of the United States to dismiss the charges altogether, ending the prosecution.

However, reporter Maurer also notes of the situation Whitehouse has plopped himself into the middle of (emphasis mine), 

“In this case, the defendant agrees with the prosecutors that the case be dismissed. So there’s really no case or controversy left, that is, no reason for the judge not to grant the petition for a writ of mandamus. So how did Senator Whitehouse react? “Where you see Neomi Rao,” he tweetered Friday, “you can expect a lot of Trumpy dirt to follow. She’s a cartoon of a fake judge.” It was a shocking message on the eve of a judicial proceeding and from a member of the Judiciary Committee.”

I’d say so…
















VIDEO: Gutless Sen Lindsey Graham will NOT Seek to Question Obama Over Flynn Bombshell

One big luv-fest.

If you think for one second that ‘America’s Confirmed Bachelor’ Sen. Lindsey Graham intends to bring his buddy Barack Obama before the US Senate’s Judiciary Committee, guess again.

In regards to the declassification of the Obama Administration’s cover-up while they framed President Trump’s former National Security Advisor, Lt Gen Michael Flynn, the Palmetto State’s senior senator made clear that he has zero intention of ever calling Comrade Barry to testify before his committee.

As reported by Emily Zanotti of the DailyWire.com (emphasis mine);

Senate Republicans will investigate the Obama administration’s decision to target national security adviser Michael Flynn following the 2016 presidential election, but they do not intend to subpoena former President Barack Obama or require him to testify in front of a panel, Politico reports.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told media Tuesday that his committee is prepared to investigate former Obama administration officials, particularly officials affiliated with the Department of Justice, and the FBI over their targeting of Flynn in light of Attorney General William Barr’s decision to drop perjury charges against the former national security advisor. Barack Obama will likely be left off the list of those asked to testify.

“I’m not anticipating calling President Obama,” Graham said, adding that it was likely the panel will question FBI Director James Comey and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates.
