Even though my gut tells my that our beloved nation is WAAAAAAAY beyond the tipping point, my heart want to believe that there’s still sukoshi hope for America.
Case in point: Remember back in 2009 the famed “Bill Clinton Tapes”? GQ magazine reported that Bill Clinton “squirreled away the cassettes in his sock drawer and has never spoken of them nor made them public.”
The conservative-leaning JudicialWatch.org took Bubba to court over said tapes, believing they should be turned over to the NARA (National Archives and Records Administration), “seeking declaration that audiotapes created by former president and historian were presidential records under the Presidential Records Act (PRA) and for order compelling NARA to assume custody and control of the tapes and deposit them in presidential library” according to the court documents themselves.
Here’s just a bit more background – the judge in this particular case was US District Court Judge District Court, Amy Berman Jackson. JMHO, but this chick is more than screamingly partisan favoring everything Democrat.
Just a few examples:
- She’s the one who dismissed the wrongful death lawsuit against Hillary Clinton on behalf of some of the parents who lost family members in the terrorist attacks in Benghazi.
- She was the presiding judge against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates in the fraudulent Russia-Gate case.
- In a separate case, she presided over the equally fraudulent Roger Stone case. She sentenced Stone to 40 months in prison along with a fine of $20,000.
Ahh, but how time and changes things.
As cited in her own court records, when it comes to Clintons fighting against Judicial Watch;
The PRA [Presidential Records Act] does not confer any mandatory or even discretionary authority on the Archivist to classify records. Under the statute, this responsibility is left solely to the President.
Please keep in mind that no one ever took her ruling to be appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit or directly to the U.S. Supreme Court.
As of this moment in time, Jackson’s ruling is the law of the land.
Isn’t that interesting?
I guess I’ll wait until 3pm next Tuesday to see if this case will be thrown out, or if there really is a two-tiered rule of law here in the good ol’ US of A.
