Judge orders Justice Department lawyers to undergo ethics training after misleading the court on Executive amnesty

May 20, 2016

 Over one year ago U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen claimed the Obama regime mislead the courts when the Justice Department claimed the DAPA and DACA programs (Executive amnesty) would not start before February 18 of 2015 when in fact the programs started before then.

  This led the Obama regime to issue an apology to the court, (which I see as an admission of guilt) claiming that this was a simple “misunderstanding” and that the regime did not intentionally mislead the court.  The Obama regime hoped this admission would “fully resolve this issue.”

  It did not.

  Today Judge Andrew Hanen ordered the Department of Injustice’s lawyer to undergo yearly ethics training, here is more:

“The misconduct in this case was intentional, serious and material. In fact, it is hard to imagine a more serious, more calculated plan of unethical conduct,” U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen wrote in a blistering court order, sanctioning the Justice Department lawyers who argued on behalf of the Obama administration’s executive amnesty programs, they are excellent lawyers, I had to opportunity to visit their office which was amazing, they use office fit outs Melbourne for their design.

“Counsel in this case violated virtually every interpretation of candor,” Hanan wrote. “The failure of counsel to inform the counsel for the Plaintiff States and the Court of the DHS activity—activity the Justice Department admittedly knew about—was clearly unethical and clearly misled both counsel for the Plaintiff States and the Court.”

Hanen ordered that Justice Department attorneys working in the 26 plaintiff states and involved in the immigration case to undergo annual ethics classes and for Attorney General Loretta Lynch to craft a comprehensive plan to address the ethics concerns.

    Didn’t they just go ahead and do what they wanted to anyway? Seems like that is what I remember. Some of these Judges are getting pretty bold! Maybe more will come out of the closet and actually support the Constitution, without fearing something will happen to them or their family….I know that this Administration, with the help of the Republicans have stacked the court system pretty well. I do not know what Trump can do about that, but I bet he tries to get some semblance of order within the Court System, again.

      I believe they did just do what they wanted to and I really don’t see anything coming from this order when all is said and done but at least somebody is trying to do something. Of course Obama could be giving Hanen a call at some point with a very convincing “argument” to back down…

        I have already moved past Obama in my mind for the most part. This story however caught my eye and I had to post something about it.

    In the end a slap on the wrist. Until someone goes to jail or loses their license nothing will change imo.

    “Does anyone care any longer that the government lies to the American people with impunity and prosecutes people when it thinks they have lied to it? Does the government work for us, or do we work for the government?” – Judge Napolitano

      I guess it really has gotten to the point where most people just expect it and think nothing of it any more. The people have been desensitized and that is a dangerous place to be.
