Expect Agenda-Advancing Activism from Anti-Gun Judge Reviewing Hillary Clinton Emails
“A federal judge in the nation’s capital will personally review redacted material from emails that discuss Hillary Clinton’s use of unsecure iPads and iPhones during her tenure as secretary of state,” WND.com reported. “Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly will determine whether or not the Trump administration can withhold evidence that could shed light on accusations Clinton and her staff mishandled classified information.”
It’s part of a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch following the administration’s refusal to respond to a Freedom of Information Act Request. That means Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in protecting their fiefdoms, are also giving Clinton cover.
And in this case, be surprised if the judge doesn’t follow suit. It won’t be the first time a federal judge has done so.
Aside from being former Presiding Judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (which carries its own troubling Constitutional considerations), Kollar-Kotelly has shown herself to be a “progressive” activist when it comes to infringing on the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
She was the Bill Clinton-appointed judge (no conflict of interest there!) who – before Congress acted on a rider to a credit card bill to make it “legal” – ruled that a Bush administration rule to allow concealed carry in national parks could not be implemented until an environmental impact study had been conducted. She issued a preliminary injunction in a memorandum opinion siding with the Brady Campaign.
Put another way, she unilaterally decided your life and your rights were less important than the off-chance you might fire your gun in self-defense and accidentally threaten an endangered species animal, or perhaps cause other damage by adding a minuscule amount of lead to the environment. And that’s in spite of case after documented case of threats to life in national parks that were known at the time.
As an aside, the Obama administration enacted plenty of rules allowing for illegal aliens and “refugees” to come into the country and to spread their populations throughout. This causes very real additional environmental stresses and demands in terms of energy, water, food, resources, waste disposal, etc., and yet the influx has been added without a realistic assessment to let the American people know what their “leaders” are committing them to deal with.
The odds have to be greater than those of hitting a spotted owl during a defensive gun use.
It’s fair to wonder — if the Bradys had standing to sue over guns in parks — who would have standing to sue over the engineered invasion of foreign nationals? And to wonder if Kollar-Kotelly would find a contradictory rationale if “progressive” goals were at stake…?
Who wants to bet she’ll let Judicial Watch endanger Hillary?
