Federal FISA Judge Recuses Himself From Michael Flynn Case…

Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself from the case surrounding Michael Flynn, and people are wondering whyThere’s one very distinct possibility.

POLITICO – President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, will face a different judge to be sentenced than the one who took Flynn’s guilty plea to a felony false statement charge last week, court records show.

Judge Emmet Sullivan was randomly assigned to take over the case after Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself. (more)

As soon as CTH saw the name Judge Rudolph Contreras our spidey sense alarm bells began ringing.  You know why?…

Judge Rudolph Contreras is one of a very small group of FISA Court Judges. –LINK

My instincts tell me that Judge Contreras was most likely the judge who signed off on the FISA warrant that led to the surveillance of Donald Trump’s campaign officials, that included National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn.

Those FBI FISA warrants are now coming under scrutiny.

It would be EXPLOSIVE if it turned out that the FISA warrants were gained by deception, misleading information, manipulated information, or fraud…. and that warrant led to the wiretapping and surveillance of General Michael Flynn was authorized by Contreras…. who would now be the judge in Flynn’s case.

Yes, the conflict of interest would be beyond stunning.

Oh, like I keep sayin’….

Stay tuned!

      Progressives poison everything they touch. Eight years of Barack Obama and America is infected with judges who rule not based on the law, but on their personal political philosophy. Essential federal departments and agencies e.g IRS, FBI, DOJ, most of our intelligence community, etc.have been politicized and corrupted. Billions of dollars disappeared from the State Dept and from HUD. The highly detailed personnel and background records of every current and former federal employee (including those of Congress and our entire intelligence community) were hijacked by the Chinese (thanks to the total incompetence of a former kindergarten teacher who Obama appointed as the head of our federal Office of Personnel Management).The spying on the incoming Trump Administration was flat out criminal. And yet Obama did it. And what information was presented to the FISA court to get the approval of the spying? This is not America as we knew it not so very long ago.

      Ha! Brings it home, doesn’t it! Would love to know his thoughts on this one.

      Contreras may have blown the entire case if he were the one who issued the warrant, no matter how legitimate, and then judge-shopped for the plea to keep it in the family. Now, THAT would be collusion.

      If Weissman did judge-shop this to Contreras in the first place, we have just witnessed a real MOAB. Funny that the announcement of his replacement stresses the word ‘random’. Isn’t that usual practice?

      God help us if this has been regular business for the last 8 or more years. This makes 1984 look like a nursery rhyme. Juge, jury and executioner.

          Jordan was very heated when he and other committee members admonished Wray that they ARE oversight for FISA, so they expect the materials provided FOR the warrant to be shared with them.

          The report about Contreras’ recusal came in around 6:30 or 7 PM tonight. I was pretty impressed by the speed of that.

              During the hearing today, things got a bit heated.

              When discussing the FISA warrants, Wray made a snarky response that he could not legally share anything on the FISA warrants with the committee. Then Jim Jordan accused the FBI of dressing up the dossier, and Strzok taking it to FISA to get a warrant.

              Then Jim and others raised their voices and reminded Wray that they have OVERSIGHT OF FISA, so they would expect to share the materials that were presented to gain the warrant. The hearing was dull and then that episode became a thing of beauty.

              Contreras recused himself from Flynn’s sentancing phase around 6:30 tonight.

    U.S. FISA Court Rules of Procedure mandate that the government (ie DoJ/FBI) must correct any misstatement (i.e. lies a/k/a “Fake Trump Dossier”), as detailed below.

    THEN, go to Rule 13(a)(5) & (b)(4) – Court has to decide what the heck they are going to do about the information they obtained….

    Isn’t illegally obtained information inadmissible in a Court?

    My pea brain concluded prosecution of General Flynn is illegal. Tainted evidence.

    My pea brain says if his case isn’t dismissed, President Trump should pardon him.

    No wonder the judge recused himself.

    Rule 13. Correction of Misstatement or Omission; Disclosure of Non-Compliance.
    (a) Correction ofMaterial Facts. Ifthe government discovers that a submission to the Court contained a misstatement or omission of material fact, the government, in writing, must immediately inform the Judge to whom the submission was made of:

    (1) the misstatement or omission;
    (2) any necessary correction;
    (3) the facts and circumstances relevant to the misstatement or omission;
    (4) any modifications the government has made or proposes to make in how it will implement any authority or approval granted by the Court; and

    (5) how the government proposes to dispose of or treat any information obtained as a result of the misstatement or omission.

    (b) Disclosure ofNon-Compliance. If the government discovers that any authority or approval granted by the Court has been implemented in a manner that did not comply with the Court’s authorization or approval or with applicable law, the government, in writing, must immediately inform the Judge to whom the submission was made of:

    (1) the non-compliance;
    (2) the facts and circumstances relevant to the non-compliance;
    (3) any modifications the government has made or proposes to make in how it will implement any authority or approval granted by the Court; and
    (4) how the government proposes to dispose of or treat any information obtained as a result ofthe non-compliance.

      You bring up an interesting hypothesis, MaineCoon.

      “No wonder the judge recused himself.”

      Is it at all possible that Contreras was not just an innocent bystander of judge-shopping for the warrant, but also knows the material provided was bogus? Maybe complicit and a Nevertrumper? I wonder if he reviewed the original warrant attempt?

      If any of these conditions are true, Contreras may have realized he would put himeself in jeopardy should he sentance Flynn after realizing the committee will be in position of his reviews.

        Look at my post below re: Rule 5(b). I interpret it to say he did receive the original FISA application and the 2nd one which was approved. I could be wrong, but I interpret Rule 5(b) in that manner & I assume (like SD) he was the judge.

        IMO Flynn’s case/sentencing should be stayed until the validity of the FISA application is determined by the FISA Court (above Rule 13(a)(5)(b)(4). Then, once it’s underlying Fake Trump Dossier is deemed a misstatement (lie) the whole damn FISA Order and IMO case against Flynn and maybe others falls apart, tainted evidence/fruit of the poisonous tree, etc.

        Seems to me the Judge Contreras should have WANTED to clean this mess up in his court instead of running via a recusal. He knew enough to know that something was rotten in Denmark, but he runs and hides allowing further judicial travesty to be done via pending sentencing.

        Whoever or whatever entity has the authority to halt this FISA Court should take action accordingly, imo.

Contreras knows damn well what’s going on or he wouldn’t have recused. Not one doubt in my mind. I don’t call recusal common action. He damn well knew and absolutely probably watched the entire hearing. What judge wouldn’t who signed the Order. He recues the day Jordan blasts the FISA Order is tainted? The only way I can think of Contreras being rake over the coals to determine if he was complicit is via a bar association investigation. Someone needs to go after his ass. It needs to be determined if he was complicit.

    More on Contreras. He was the judge who “handled” VICE’s FOIA meant to obtain Clinton’s emails from the State department.

    Contreras originally (in May 2015) ordered a schedule to be met by the State department for the email’s redacted but public release. However, that deadline was missed in February 2016. The release was delayed until the the eve of Super Tuesday with little time for the voting public of read or absorb them. In regard to the delay Contreras said:

    “I don’t want to force the government to do something that’s going to benefit no one.”

    There was little discussion [2/9/16] of the reasons for State’s failure to circulate more than 7,000 pages of the emails for interagency review. However, Contreras demanded that State file a detailed report by Friday on “how this problem arose, what caused it and why it wasn’t noticed until just recently.”

    That was supposed to be the last batch of emails dumped before Super Tuesday… Until it was learned the FBI possessed more that were FIOAed

    A potential compromise is in the works that could result in more Hillary Clinton emails recovered by the FBI being made public before the election… “No one knew these documents existed … and these documents should have been in the 55,000,” Contreras said.

    “Just because Secretary Clinton deleted an email does not mean anything untoward happened here,” State Department Attorney Prince said, noting that federal employees are generally not obliged to save all emails, even those that are-work related.

    “I’m not suggesting that,” replied Contreras, who issued the original order that led to State’s public release of the 54,000 Clinton emails — a process that was completed in February [eve of Super Tuesday]. However, the judge said he believed both sides could work out a compromise that would reallocate some of State’s resources to the Clinton email project.

    “It seems to me that if the two of you actually spoke to each other, you could reach some agreement,” Contreras said. “I’m not going to order that everything be produced by Election Day. That’s just impossible.”

    So the Judge sets deadlines that are conveniently missed by the State Department/FBI and he just shrugs and allows it to continue – even when (at the time) their release would be critical to the election – both the primary and the general. Seems like he’s covering for Hillary.

    Then there is this: In 1994, Contreras was hired by Eric Holder Jr., then the U.S. attorney for D.C., to join that office.

    U.S. FISA Court Rules of Procedure, Rule 5(b): I interpret this to means that the same judge, presumedly J.

    If so, it might explain why J. Contreras didn’t recuse until today’s Wray testimony whereby Jordan gave his own scathing testimony regarding the false (ie lies) as the basis of the FISA order.

    Blows the whole FISA Court to hell in a hand basket and Judge Contreras is getting the hell out of dodge.

    This a helluva mess for the FISA Court and it’s victims.

    “In 2014, Sullivan was presiding over a case, Judicial Watch v. IRS,[7] related to an ongoing investigation into the 2013 IRS controversy. There was an attempt to determine where the “lost” emails of former IRS employee Lois Lerner went, what damage to her computer hard drive occurred, and what steps the IRS had taken to recover the information contained in the emails and on the hard drive.[8][9]

    In 2015 Sullivan presided over a FOIA lawsuit involving the matter of Hillary Clinton’s private email use while Secretary of State.[10]”

    he doesn’t sound too good either. A Bill Clinton appointee. A randomly chosen replacement – yeah, right!

      Withhold judgment on Sullivan. I think he has been pretty tough on some scofflaws not long ago. I could be wrong, but the name rings a bell…

    Something happened between the plea and this afternoon. Wonder what it was?
    https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/28/455…this would cover recusal for substance. As to procedure who knows. Something is strange here for sure.

  29. Why doesn’t Attorney General Jeff Sessions un-recuse himself & clean up this massive mess? It’s time for him to step in, time to step up & take control of the Justice Department. The corruption is staggering.

        How can he un-recuse? I don’t think you can once you recuse it is final isn’t it?

        Imagine if PTrump had the active, aggressive, supportive AG that PTrump needs in these perilous times…..……an AG who controls the very bureaucracies that hate PTrump and that are using their power to destroy him if they can, while Sessions says and does nothing,

        Sessions wants to remain a member in good standing with his natural allies….the establishment UniParty gentleman’s club of ex Senators.
        Sessions original policy commonality with PTrump was immigration, that’s about all.

        Sessions isn’t a sleeper in some cunning convoluted plan, he’s a waste of space whose heart is not in the front line..

            You will be, when you consider the daily crimes and misdemeanors committed by Session’s staff at the FBI and DoJ whom he has responsibility for and does absolutely nothing about.

              Let’s see how they are handled. Tonight, the FBI has just contended that Jeff Sessions never even needed to disclose his official Senatorial meetings with the Russians…probably because it had nothing to do with the campaign…un-recusal close, maybe?

      Supposedly, his recusal is part of a secret plan to get the bad guys. Right now the bad guys seem to be doing a good job of getting themselves. Their crimes are so vast and so easy to see. They think they are above the law and can get away with it.

    I am going to have to go make a cup of chamomile tea and take some melatonin. I am not sure I am going to be able to sleep. There has just been so much drama and so much to try to puzzle out involving this Mueller Mess. The last couple of days have been so chaotic.

    Perhaps we would all do well, in these times, to say this prayer from Cardinal John Henry Newman:
    Lead, kindly light, amid the encircling gloom,
    Lead thou me on.
    The night is dark and I am far from home,
    Lead thou me on.
    Keep thou my feet, I do not ask to see
    The distant scene; one step enough for me.

    That is the first of three “stanzas” in this prayer. It is truly superb; hope you will join me in saying it.

    The last verse is, in part:
    So long thy power hath blest me, sure it still
    Will lead me on
    O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent, till
    The night is gone…

    I think that judge needs to come clean as a witness under oath.

    Agree?

      My bet is that Sullivan will put the KIBOSH on this, on the quick. The people are Screaming for Sunshine, where the Sun don’t usually shine. The schemers are stepping on YUUUUGE toes.

    Why the hell didn’t Judge Rudolph Contreras recuse himself in the first place. This doesn’t make sense….

    It appears FISA Judge Rudolph Contreres is a large player in the scheme to take down President Donald J. Trump. Like many of his Demeocratic peers he believes he is invincible. He is an insider hired in 1994 by Eric Holder, then a U.S. Attorney. He was promoted to be a Judge by President Barack Obama, then given a spot on the FISA court supervised by Supreme Court Justice John Roberts. He likely is the Judge who issued the FISA warrent allowing spying on members of the Trump campaign.
    With hearings yesterday in House of Representatives demanding that all details of the FISA warrents be released it is likely Judge Contreres not longer feels invincible.
