President Donald J. Trump ran on a campaign promise that he would “drain the swamp,” and while most people agreed with that, many did not understand the vast complexity of the activists in the Judicial Department who were appointed by former Attorney General and Community Organizer Eric Holder.
Holder is a radical Marxist Community Organizer who began remaking the American Justice system under Former President Bill Clinton.
As frustrating as Holder was, William J. Barr, the current Attorney General, has confused supporters of Trump’s with what appears to be betrayals and doublespeak. However, upon a basic inspection of press releases paired up with some news stories, a new and hopeful image emerges.
Barr, for all his perceived faults, whether right or wrong, has been quietly getting rid of some strategic Holder Justice Holdovers, with little fanfare. One of Barr’s latest appointments is in Texas, where Trump has his greatest chance of victory in a US Court in the 2020 Presidential election, and Barr Chased off a member of the DOJ who had constructed US Elections over the last 28 years.
BARR’S NEW TEXAS APPOINTEE
Consider a press release from the DOJ on Dec. 2 that got hardly any coverage anywhere, but could be a foundational move for Trump:
Attorney General William P. Barr has appointed Kevin M. Epstein as the U.S. Trustee for the Southern and Western Districts of Texas (Region 7) effective Jan. 1, 2021, the Executive Office for U.S. Trustees (EOUST) announced today. He will replace Henry G. Hobbs Jr., who is retiring after 28 years of government service.
Mr. Epstein has been a Trial Attorney with the U.S. Trustee Program for 21 years, first in San Jose, California, and since 2003 in San Antonio, Texas. During his tenure, he also has served as an Acting Assistant U.S. Trustee in charge of three different field offices. Mr. Epstein received his law degree from the University of Texas School of Law and his undergraduate degree from Duke University, both with honors.
“We are pleased to have Mr. Epstein join our leadership team,” said EOUST Director Cliff White. “His depth of legal experience and practical approach to management, along with his strong commitment to the mission, will serve Region 7 well. I also want to extend my best wishes and deepest appreciation to Mr. Hobbs for his many significant contributions to the U.S. Trustee Program over the years.” (End of Press Release)
THe US Trustee Program is described by the Department of Justice-Remember this:
“The United States Trustee Program is the component of the Department of Justice responsible for overseeing the administration of bankruptcy cases and private trustees under 28 U.S.C.
§ 586 and 11 U.S.C. § 101, et seq. We are a national program with broad administrative, regulatory, and litigation/enforcement authorities whose mission is to promote the integrity and efficiency of the bankruptcy system for the benefit of all stakeholders–debtors, creditors, and the public.”
Here is the background of yet another Holder Holdover that is now gone. In a 2017 op-ed piece for the Washington Times, Robert Knight wrote about just this problem for America with how Holder’s pals affect the US Presidential election, with another Holder appointee:
Richard C. Pilger has headed the Election Crimes Branch in the Public Integrity Section of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Justice Department since 2010. Appointed by former Attorney General Eric Holder, Mr. Pilger is in charge of prosecuting public corruption cases, and specifically “voter fraud and campaign financing offenses.
“Despite evidence pouring in that some local and state election officials are allowing massive numbers of noncitizens, felons and other ineligible names to remain unchallenged on voter registration rolls across the nation, Mr. Pilger’s department has responded with a Parisian-style shrug,” Knight wrote.
“Annual reports to Congress during Mr. Pilger’s tenure from 2010 to 2015 (the latest published report), list only three cases of prosecuted vote-buying schemes — one in Texas in 2014 and two in Kentucky in 2012 — but not a single case involving fraudulent voter registrations.”
REMEMBER PILGER RAN OFF LAST MONTH BECAUSE OF BARR
Flashback to November 2020 when Pilger quit his job over Barr’s demands he investigate what we now see is an election full of fraud.
NPR covers the story and ads some cover for Pilger, painting him as a noble savior:
“Pilger announced his resignation from his leadership role in a letter to colleagues and staff. The letter was shared online by Vanita Gupta, the former head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.
The letter reads, in part:
“Having familiarized myself with the new policy and its ramifications, and in accord with the best tradition of the John C. Keeney Award for Exceptional Integrity and Professionalism (my most cherished Departmental recognition), I must regretfully resign from my role as Director of the Election Crimes Branch. I have enjoyed very much working with you for over a decade to aggressively and diligently enforce federal criminal election law, policy and practice without partisan fear or favor. I thank you for your support in that effort.”
The department’s longstanding policy urges extreme caution in starting a public investigation before an election has been officially concluded in part because doing so could chill legitimate voting and campaign activities. It also “runs the significant risk of interjecting the investigation itself as an issue, both in the campaign and in the adjudication of any ensuing election contest,” according to the government’s guidelines for prosecuting election offenses, (which Pilger wrote)
That document adds that Pilger wrote the government guidelines:
“Accordingly, overt criminal investigative measures should not ordinarily be taken in matters involving alleged fraud in the manner in which votes were cast or counted until the election in question has been concluded, its results certified, and all recounts and election contests concluded.”
The most recent edition of the Justice Department guide, issued in 2017, runs nearly 300 pages. Pilger was its editor.
Because of the sensitive nature of the election process, the policy has long required a U.S. attorney’s office to consult the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section before moving beyond a preliminary investigation.
On Monday, Barr, one of Trump’s most steadfast allies, authorized federal prosecutors to pursue “substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities” in U.S. states. He criticized the existing guidance, calling it “a passive and delayed enforcement approach.” (End of NPR article)
2011 PEICE IN THE NEW YORK POST SHOWS HISTORY OF PROBLEMS WITH HOLDER’S JUSTICE HOLDOVERS
“While Attorney General Eric Holder and others in the Obama administration dance as fast as they can to cover up any high-level wrongdoing surrounding Operation Fast and Furious, an investigation into the Justice Department’s hiring practices uncovers some disturbing facts.
Essentially, when Holder took over, hiring practices veered sharply leftward to the point where even moderately liberal lawyers would get the cold shoulder. “It took a protracted lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act to extract the resumes of the Civil Rights Division’s newly hired attorneys, and it is not difficult to understand why the “Most Transparent Administration in History” fought so hard. Naturally, the resumes reveal an undeniable campaign to populate every corner of the Division with left-wing ideologues. Meanwhile, attorneys who don’t demonstrate this ideological zeal aren’t hired.”
And as author J Christian Adams explains further, this demand for far-left conformity has directly impacted citizens. “If you go to the Wisconsin State Fair and are beaten because you are white, your federal government will do nothing for you, even as it would act if attacker and attacked races were reversed. It means if you are Marty Marshall standing in your front yard watching fireworks with your family and are attacked by a mob yelling, “this is our world. This is a black world,” don’t expect DOJ to act. It means if you are Dick Retta and are pepper-sprayed by a liberal for praying and exercising federal rights to protest abortion, don’t expect the law to protect you.” (End of New York Post Article)
DOES IT COME DOWN TO RESTORING CIVIL RIGHTS THAT HOLDER KILLED?
Holder has been tweeting against Trump’s moves:
There was some early indication that the 2020 Presidential election would become a Civil RIghts case.
In North Carolina, a Civil Rights Case filed before the end of the election based on the left’s Ballot Harvesting scheme led by attorney Marc Elias, and an announcement that the DOJ was looking at Civil Rights.
I wrote about that here:
IS THERE A NEW CLEANED UP LEGAL PATH TO VICTORY FOR TRUMP? NOTE THAT SOMETHING INTERESTING IS HAPPENING IN TEXAS
Trump says that the Texas case, which is now approved to be heard by the United States Supreme Court, is the “big one” and is joined by 10 states and growing.
POMPEO SAID NOT TO DO BUSINESS WITH COMMUNISTS-FOR REAL
With a new head of the US Trustee Program in Texas Court dealing with financial issues, and the push for Texas to lead a case in the US Supreme Court, combined with Pompeo’s press release from Tuesday that sanctions will now happen for people who work with Communists… is it possible that Barr has Holder’s Justice Holderovers on the run?
