American Center for Law and Justice Jay Sekulow Assails Appointment of Tony West

 

Another controversial appointment has been made by Attorney General Eric Holder. This time his appointment to the number 3 post at the Department of Justice is raising important questions.

Tony West served as assistant attorney general for the Civil Division and has now been named to acting associate attorney general.

What you may not know, though, is that West represented convicted terrorist John Walker Lindh, who fought on behalf of the Taliban and aided Al Qaeda. He’s now serving a 20-year prison sentence after being captured in Afghanistan in 2001. And, what’s more, not only did West represent Lindh, but his firm was also involved in two other defense cases for terrorists working against the U.S.

  • The Alliance Responds to the Chief Justice’s State of the Judiciary Address 2015/03/26
    On Monday, the Chief Justice gave her fourth State of the Judiciary address. Her remarks were brief, her tone subdued. In marked contrast with last year’s speech, she did not demand large sums from the Legislature, nor did she decry at length the crisis in our courts. Instead, she spoke about the Magna Carta and […]

    You probably noticed that the insiders on the judicial council, save a few blowhards like judge David Rosenberg who basically framed the latest audit report as a pack of lies were unusually quiet leading up to the legislative hearing. It was only after the hearing that we see other press reports that suggest that the […]

    Yesterday, the Joint Legislative Audit Committee and Assembly Budget Subcommittee #5 on Public Safety held hearings on the recent audit of the Judicial Council and the AOC.  State Auditor Elaine Howle did not pull any punches.  She painted an ugly picture of an agency that has lost its way, one that has strayed from its […]

  • Will they walk the talk? 2015/03/12
    Yesterday you heard judge Marsha Slough and Martin Hoshino sit in front of an assembly subcommittee and represent that they’re taking seriously the auditors findings and executing on a strategy to address them. But the two judges McCabe and Wachob were brought aboard the judicial council three years ago with great fanfare and they were […]

  • Eliminating the name has only exacerbated the problem 2015/03/11
    Late last year after the judicial council had received a customary draft copy of the state auditors report, the judicial council took it upon themselves to eliminate the name “Administrative Office of the Courts”. To those who work in the AOC, the change was all but totally meaningless because the name they recognized was “Judicial […]
