Now its Trump vs. Obama. CrossTalking with Bruce Fein, Robert Barnes, and Alexander Mercouris.

Did Obama spy on Trump?

It isn’t out of the question. The former president’s administration wiretapped journalists and spied on Congress. (Photo: Michael Reynolds, epa) So President Trump set off a firestorm over the weekend with a series of tweets alleging that Obama had tapped Trump Tower. But getting hung up on imprecise language in the president’s tweets isn’t the…Read More

Yes, There Could Be Serious Legal Problems if Obama Admin Involved in Illegal Surveillance

President Trump recently tweeted claiming that former President Obama wiretapped him during his campaign. One can only imagine how nuts the media would have gone if the roles had been reversed: President Trump wiretapping either Obama or the Clintons, though his DOJ could have authority to do just that given the expansive leaks of intelligence information by Obama…Read More

Sessions Did NOT Perjure Himself Under Oath

Some of the same liberal law professors and journalists who thought Hillary should be President after lying to Congress about hiding emails and who also praised Clapper’s “independence” after he repeatedly lied to Congress about NSA spying, now attack Attorney General Sessions under a bogus claim of “lying” to Congress. There is no basis to…Read More

Sally Yates Should Be Investigated For Her Possible Role in Watergate-Style Surveillance

As an attorney with prior professional experience dealing with Sally Yates, I can imagine no one better who needs to be put under investigation herself. Now, information leaks that Sally Yates knew about surveillance being conducted against potential members of the Trump administration, and disclosed that information to others.

On Trial: Five Signs Even The Ninth Circuit Knows Trump Will Win Travel Ban Fight In End

Seattle Judge is Wrong and Overreached With Nationwide Injunction on Travel Ban

Two different courts, on opposite coasts, ruled in opposite directions on Friday. A Boston federal court affirmed Trump’s executive order as “bona fide”; a Seattle federal court enjoined it. Both spoke to requests for “nationally” effective rulings. Can federal courts give conflicting directions to government employees? Did Homeland predict this in their screenplays? The Seattle…Read More

On Trial: Why Trump’s Immigration Ban Will Win Over Seattle Judge’s Nationwide Order

Opening Statement On Friday, a Boston federal judge issued a 21 page decision debunking the arguments against Trump’s Executive Order suspending migration from certain countries pending further review. Later that same day, a Seattle federal judge who has been making the news lately (and not usually for the most flattering of reasons), declared his oral…Read More

Is Sports Betting Coming to Your State Soon? SCOTUS May Weigh In

In a little noticed invite from the Supreme Court to the Solicitor General during the inauguration week, the Supreme Court suggested it may take up New Jersey’s argument to strike down federal law forbidding state’s from permitting sports betting in their states. Will the Supremes make sports betting in New Jersey great again? The ubiquitous Governor…Read More

Battle over “First Amendment Defense Act” looms.

President Trump is no stranger to pushing buttons.  Anyone that has read “The Art of the Deal” knows that he sees himself as the negotiator willing to do what it takes to win the battles he chooses to fight.  To those ends, his first few weeks in office have been entertaining if nothing else. The…Read More
