FISA judge Contreras of Flynn fame forces WH to accept Playboy reporter


Judge Contreras of FISA fame. The same activist judge who railroaded Flynn into a guilty plea and then had to recuse himself. A friend of Peter Strzok and his gal pal Lisa Page. Now Contreras is going to tell Trump that a “reporter” from Playboy mag has to have WH press credentials? What happened to separation of powers?

Deadline reported:

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the White House to restore the hard pass of Playboy’s correspondent Brian Karem, whose credentials were suspended after an incident in July in which he got in argument with former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka following a Rose Garden ceremony.

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras granted Karem’s motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction.

After White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham informed Karem she was suspending his hard pass for 30 days, calling his conduct “unacceptable and disruptive,” he sued, seeking a temporary restraining order and a preliminary injunction to reinstate his access to the White House grounds.

Playboy’s current circulation is about 200,000, down to publishing quarterly at a hefty $24.99 an issue and going back to focusing on nude women. Having lost more than 97% of its readership from its heyday of over 7 and a half million, it’s difficult to understand why Playboy has some magic entitlement to a White House press pass. It cannot be credibly claimed that Playboy is a news magazine. Giving Playboy’s pass to The Onion would serve the nation better. Why a press pass in the first place?

Robert’s is responsible for the FISA court, as such it has been reported that he oversees the court. One can only ask, where is Roberts in all of this and why has there been nothing done about the abuse? There is more to Roberts than we know?

A refresher

On Dec. 7, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself from overseeing former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s case without providing a reason.

The relationship between Strzok and U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras, who was appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, was disclosed in text messages between Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page, and obtained by Fox News.

“Rudy is on the FISC! Did you know that?” Page said in a text to Strzok in July 2016. “Just appointed two months ago.”

“I did,” Strozk said in response. “We talked about it before and after. I need to get together with him.”

The two also discussed how Strzok needed to be careful about what he discussed with Contreras to avoid putting him “into a situation where he’d have to recuse himself.”

Page said she couldn’t “imagine either one of your could talk about anything in detail meaningful enough to warrant recusal.”

”Strzok’s job as a counterintelligence agent meant that he interacted with the FISC on a regular basis and the messages reveal that Strzok and Contreras both made appearances at a recent “graduation party.”

The day after Flynn’s guilty plea, reports emerged detailing Strzok’s text messages with Page, and on Dec. 7 Contreras recused himself from the case without providing a reason.

“That explains why he recused himself,” former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia Joe DiGenova said, according to Fox News. “He knew he was a friend of Strzok’s when the case came to him. He should allow Flynn to withdraw the guilty plea.”

Enter one Judge Rudolph Contreras

He was appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) court in 2016.

Current Chief Justice John Roberts has been in his role since 2005 and therefore he has appointed all the judges to the FISA court.  Knowing this, it is concerning that Judge Roberts also is responsible for the makeup of the current FISA court.

    The nuts on the Democrat side (Al Green, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Rashida Tlaib, Mad Max Waters, etc. ) can call for impeachment.

    Why can’t the spineless Republicans find at least one person to draw up papers of impeachment for one of these idiot judges?

    Since when has Playboy Magazine ever hired a journalist? Were I the White House council, I would want to take this one through the court system.

    Why did Playboy have a press pass in the first place? Of course there was the Acosta fiasco as well, how is it that these people suddenly have a right to cover the White House?

    I have no use for J Roberts. Local and district judges have too much power.

    Off topic: Cory Booker who grew up in upper class Harrington Park, NJ, claims Newark as his hometown. And not one to take advantage of bad news, in this case unsafe water, Booker is calling for three trillion dollars to replace lead pipes. What a guy; three trillion. Imagine if one of these fauxgreenies are elected as POTUS.

    DC, rather than a swamp which is a home for God’s creatures that prey on each other for food, is a cesspool inhabited by creatures who wallow in human fecal matter and devour each other for unmitigated greed and power. In every strata of the cesspool duly elected and appointed public servants, all are seemingly above the law so why should we expect anything other than the wholesale corruption we are treated to on a daily basis.

      It tales little effort to find another story of what previously would be a shocker news item…. More damaging than what happened on 9/11 was the green light for the corrupters to have their way.. the FISA court being probably being the worst of it.
