Criminal whose sentence was commuted by Obama is back in prison


Published February 06, 2017
New York Post





A Texas man whose life sentence on drug charges was commuted by former President Obama is back behind bars after cops caught him with more than two pounds of cocaine following a high-speed chase, according to a report.

Robert M. Gill, 68, had been imprisoned in 1990 for for cocaine and heroin distribution before Obama set him free along with other non-violent federal inmates in 2015, the San Antonio Express News reported.

During his eight years in office, Obama commuted 1,715 prison sentences, more than any other president.

Last Thursday, according to federal court papers, Gill met with his probation officers and then went to the parking lot of a food market to buy more than 2 pounds of cocaine.

Gill met a person who gave him a black backpack that he placed in his vehicle, and a sheriff?s deputy in an unmarked car tried to stop him, the affidavit said.

But Gill took off and after a high-speed chase collided with another vehicle where deputies were able to disable his car.

Officers found the cocaine in the backpack and put him under arrest, the affidavit said.

Convicted, Released Illegals Committed 121 Murders During Obama Years

Illegal immigrants convicted of various crimes committed more than 100 murders in four years after they were released from prison and not deported by the Obama administration, according to a new report.

The Miami Herald cites a Senate Judiciary Committee document dating back to 2015, which discusses the recidivism rate among people living in the United States illegally.

The letter states that at least 121 homicides between 2010 and 2014 "could have been avoided" if the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency deported convicted immigrants rather than release them.

"This disturbing fact follows ICE's admission that, of the 36,007 criminal aliens it released from ICE custody in Fiscal Year 2013, 1,000 have been re-convicted of additional crimes in the short time since their release," the June 12, 2015 letter reads.

President Donald Trump has vowed to crack down on illegal immigration. He also instituted a temporary immigration ban from seven countries with a terror presence and halted America's refugee program from certain countries, although those directives have since become inactive as the court system rules on them.


The Herald reports that the majority of the illegal immigrant convicts in question came from countries that generally do not take back people who are deportable. Coupled with a Supreme Court ruling from 15 years ago that says the U.S. cannot imprison a deportable foreign national for more than six months, illegal immigrant convicts are often allowed to stay in the U.S.

Trump DOJ settles lawsuits over Tea Party targeting by Obama IRS




?The IRS admits that its treatment of Plaintiffs during the tax-exempt determination process, including screening their applications based on their names or policy positions, subjecting those applications to heightened scrutiny and inordinate delays, and demanding some Plaintiffs? information that TIGTA determined was unnecessary to the agency?s determination of their tax-exempt status, was wrong,? the IRS said in court documents. ?For such treatment, the IRS expresses its sincere apology.?

and the "Russia Russia Russia" nonsense comes back around to bite the Dems....really hard. And the media doesn't even cover it on TV. When you have the NYT and Wash Post both reporting on the Clintons and Russia you know it's serious; last night Rachel Maddow was still whining about Trump collusion foolishness; a famous line from the PBS series "I Claudius"...."let all the poisons that lie in the mud hatch out"

Obama administration undermined anti-Hezbollah task force to help secure Iran nuke deal, report says

The Obama administration gave a free pass to Hezbollah?s drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations ? some of which were unfolding inside the U.S. ? to help ensure the Iran nuclear deal would stay on track, according to a bombshell expos? in Politico Sunday.

An elaborate campaign led by the Drug Enforcement Administration, known as Project Cassandra, reportedly targeted the Lebanese militant group?s criminal activities. But by tossing a string of roadblocks holding back the project, Obama administration officials helped allow the 35-year-old anti-Israel criminal enterprise to evolve into a major global security threat bankrolling terrorist and military operations, the report added.

?This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision,? David Asher, who helped establish Project Cassandra as a Defense Department illicit finance analyst in 2008, told Politico. ?They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down.?



When Project Cassandra leaders, who were working out of a DEA?s Counter facility in Chantilly, Virginia, sought an OK for some significant investigations, prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, Justice and Treasury Department officials delayed, hindered or rejected their requests, according to Politico.

The red tape halted Project Cassandra?s efforts to curtail top Hezbollah operatives, including one of the world?s biggest cocaine traffickers who was also supplying conventional and chemical weapons used by Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad against his own citizens. That operative's code name: the ?Ghost.?

Former Obama administration officials told Politico anonymously that their decisions were guided by improving relations with Iran, stalling its nuclear weapons program and freeing four Americans prisoners held by the country. They also denied they ?derailed? actions against Hezbollah out of politics.



?There has been a consistent pattern of actions taken against Hezbollah, both through tough sanctions and law enforcement actions before and after the Iran deal,? Kevin Lewis who worked at both the White House and Justice Department during the Obama administration, responded.

Asher said the closer the U.S. got to finalizing the Iran nuclear deal, the more difficult it was to conduct Hezbollah investigations. After President Obama announced the deal in January 2016, Project Cassandra officials were transferred to other assignments.

?The closer we got to the [Iran deal], the more these activities went away,? Asher 49, who speaks fluent Japanese and earned his Ph.D. in international relations from Oxford University, told Politico. ?So much of the capability, whether it was special operations, whether it was law enforcement, whether it was [Treasury] designations ? even the capacity, the personnel assigned to this mission ? it was assiduously drained, almost to the last drop, by the end of the Obama administration.?

Hezbollah was formed by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in 1982 to fight Israel?s invasion of Beirut. Under the leadership of Hassan Nasrallah, who took over in 1992 after his predecessor, Abbas Mussawi, was killed in an Israeli airstrike, the group moved from seeking to implement an Iranian-style Islamic republic in Lebanon to focusing on fighting Israel and integration into Lebanon?s sectarian-based politics.

Nasrallah, now 57, has played a key role in ending a feud among Shiites, focusing attention toward fighting Israel and later expanding the group?s regional reach.

DOJ scolds Obama administration over reported groping, harassment, office sex

The Justice Department scolded the Obama administration on Wednesday following a report on how sexual harassment of all kinds was improperly handled at the department for years.





The Washington Post reported that the DOJ?s inspector general had found ?systemic? problems with how complaints were addressed, with offending officials often being let off the hook or even rewarded. The article cited investigative reports on a lawyer who allegedly groped two female attorneys and a top U.S. Marshals official who had sex with ?approximately? nine women in his office.

Though fresh complaints have been filed as recently as August, the IG said some of the worst alleged offenses happened several years ago in the department?s Civil Division.




Ian Prior, a spokesman in the Trump Justice Department, would not comment in detail about the allegations but described the problems as largely occurring during the prior administration.

?The Department does not discuss specific employee disciplinary actions or comment on personnel actions or matters that may impact personal privacy. That said, the Department was very disappointed with the issues that occurred in the Obama administration and strives for a workplace free of harassment and other misconduct for all of our 115,000 employees,? he said in a statement. ?That is why the Civil Division has implemented additional safeguards and systems to ensure that all misconduct allegations are handled appropriately going forward.?


'[T]he Department was very disappointed with the issues that occurred in the Obama administration.'
- DOJ spokesman Ian Prior
He said a ?working group? has also been convened to look at the issues raised and will soon have recommendations.



Inspector General Michael Horowitz originally sent a memo in May alerting the DOJ to the potential ?systemic issues.?

The Post reported that the IG found one top attorney in the Office of Immigration Litigation, Victor Lawrence, ?groped the breasts and buttocks of two female trial attorneys? at a happy hour.

He reportedly got a reprimand, a title change and ?relief from supervisory duties? but was not suspended and did not receive a loss in pay or grade. There reportedly was a concern that a suspension would ?deprive the government? of his services.

One woman, who was not identified, told the Post she was ?terrified? to get in an elevator out of concern he?d be there.

Several attorneys in the civil division reportedly got performance awards after the complaints. A female attorney, not identified by the Post, said, ?They got free passes.?

Another case involved a woman, former Oregon prosecutor Amanda Marshall, accused of sending harassing texts and emails to a subordinate after an ?intimate? relationship ended. She later resigned and apologized, reportedly calling the relationship ?wrong? and a ?mistake.?

According to the article, more allegations at the department surfaced this summer ? with 17 DOJ employees writing to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in August reporting sexual harassment. It?s unclear when those incidents may have occurred.
