David Bossie of Citizens United discusses State Department resistance to providing records relating to potential illegality during Obama Administration. Discusses two of the cases we have been litigating for Citizens United.
This article in CT Tribune covered our FOIA lawsuit for Citizens United against the U.S. Department of State to obtain Obama official Victoria Nuland’s emails.
In one of the FOIA cases we have filed for Citizens United seeking emails relating to Hillary Clinton’s time at the U.S. Department of State, today we filed an Opposition to State’s last minute effort to avoid compliance with the court-ordered schedule to produce documents that it itself had earlier proposed. The State Department now wants the Court to allow it a remarkable 27 additional months to provide the requested documents. Our proposed form of order is also attached.
The Daily Caller carried a story today about U.S. State Department request for extraordinary delays in making public disclosure of certain of Hillary Clinton’s emails, in a case brought by our firm for Citizens United.
Today, our firm filed three FOIA requests on behalf of the U.S. Justice
Foundation to the CIA, Department of State, and Department of Homeland
Security, seeking all redacted portions of the Congressional Joint
Report on the events of 9-11 issued in December 2002.
The joint report was issued by the Senate Select Committee on
Intelligence and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
entitled “Joint Inquiry Into Intelligence Community Activities Before
and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001,” issued both as
S. Rept. No. 107-351 and H. Rept. No. 107-792 (107th Cong., 2d Sess.)
Today, on behalf of Citizens United, we filed a Complaint under the Freedom of Information Act against the State Department, seeking certain records relating to the William J. Clinton Foundation. The case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
On October 30, 2013, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ordered the disclosure of certain records relating to the U.S./Mexico Social Security Toatalization Agreement that we have been seeking for our client, The Senior Citizens League. Here is the Order and the Opinion.
A story about this decision appeared in Courthouse News Service entitled “Mexican Social Security Deal Files Face Release” on November 1, 2013.
The WND.com article “Stonewalling on Fast and Furious Challenged” by Bob Unruh discusses Plaintiff’s Memorandum of Points and Authorities in Opposition to Defendant’s Motion for Open America Stay we filed in the case of Gun Owners Foundation v. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on behalf of plaintiff Gun Owners Foundation.
Today our firm filed Plaintiff’s Reply to Defendant’s Opposition to Plaintiff’s Motion for Partial Judgment on the Pleadings in the case of Gun Owners Foundation v. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on behalf of plaintiff Gun Owners Foundation in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
Our reply responds to the following ATF opposition and exhibits filed on August 9, 2012:
Today our firm filed Plaintiff’s Motion for Partial Judgment on the Pleadings in the case of Gun Owners Foundation v. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on behalf of plaintiff Gun Owners Foundation in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. We filed the motion because the Government failed to respond to GOF’s FOIA request for 15 months, until this suit was filed, and then admitted it had asserted no specific exemptions.
On June 6, 2012, on behalf of Gun Owners Foundation, our firm filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The suit stemmed from an April, 2011 Freedom of Information Act request in which GOF sought records pertaining to the infamous “Fast and Furious” and program where ATF federal agents deliberately and incomprehensibly put firearms directly into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.
Today, we filed a Freedom of Information Act complaint against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, also known as the Federal Reserve Board, in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The complaints arise from requests for records made by Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee, Inc. (“GATA”) beginning in 2007 relating to “gold swaps.”
Listen to more information about this lawsuit from a GATA roundtable on kingworldnews.com.
Today, on behalf of GATA, we filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests with the Federal Reserve Board and the U.S. Treasury Department seeking information on the nation’s gold stock — specifically, records since 1990 “gold swaps” reflected in the U.S. reserve assets, including any gold swaps entered into by the federal government with foreign countries and foreign banks.
