Judge orders FBI to produce search warrant application which allowed them to search for Hillary Clinton's e-mails.

Courtesy of Reuters:  

A U.S. judge on Tuesday directed federal prosecutors to show him the search warrant application used to enable the FBI to access emails related to Hillary Clinton's private server that were discovered shortly before the Nov. 8 presidential election. 

U.S. District Judge Kevin Castel in Manhattan ordered prosecutors by Thursday to turn over the application, which investigators obtained shortly after FBI Director James Comey informed Congress of newly discovered emails on Oct. 28, 11 days before the election won by her Republican opponent Donald Trump. 

Castel made the order as he considered whether any portion of the search warrant materials could be made public in response to a lawsuit filed by Randol Schoenberg, a Los Angeles-based lawyer who specializes in cases to recover artwork stolen by the Nazis, seeking to force the release of the documents. 

In court papers, Schoenberg said the public had a "strong interest" in the disclosure of the search warrant materials, saying transparency was "crucial" given the potential influence the probe had on the election's outcome.

Yes we most certainly DO deserve to know what happened here. 

And further I think we deserve to get a peek into James Comey's e-mails as well so we can see just who it was who pulled his strings and had him break protocol to undermine our election process.

    Putin and the r's want to take us back to the 1860's. Fine....

    Let's have a firing squad for Comey and all those involved with stealing the election. If it's a circular firing squad, give them the muskets.

      I say they should be hung from the rafters!

      Trump should never be allowed to take the oath of office for POTUS. He doesn't deserve the position and, in addition, Hillary has already beat him substantially with the popular vote - like a grand total of near 3 million!

      In any other country - Trump would have been toast!

      Our country and world need Hillary Clinton and they don't want Donald Trump! (except for Russia!)

      12:18, Hillary is over it. I don't want Trump to ever become POTUS, but even if that happened Hillary won't become POTUS. It would be another Rethug. Even if it somehow fell to Hillary, she would be completely justified in saying sorry, my political life is over. She probably wants to find another way to do good, a way that isn't corrupt and infiltrated and propagandized and disgusting.

    White House Says Trump May Have Known Russia Was Behind Hacks Before Election Day

    ...During his daily briefing with reporters, Press Secretary Josh Earnest said, “There’s ample evidence that was known long before the election and in most cases long before October about the Trump campaign and Russia — everything from the Republican nominee himself calling on Russia to hack his opponent. It might be an indication that he was obviously aware and concluded, based on whatever facts or sources he had available to him, that Russia was involved and their involvement was having a negative impact on his opponent’s campaign. That’s why he was encouraging them to keep doing it.”

    GOP Congressman Urges Everyone To Move On From Russian Hacks, Unite Behind Trump

    I think we have the party line on the Russian hacks of our democracy from Republicans now. It is officially, "Move on, nothing to see here."

    If only they felt the same way about their bogus BENGHAZI! investigation, eh?

    Rep. Chris Collins has some advice for us. Just move on, give it up, nothing to see here.

    "I don't think we should continue investigations because at the end, what do we really accomplish," Collins said. "We need to unite the country."

    Nope. You don't unite the country by inviting a bunch of conspiracy theorists and Putin allies into our government right after Putin's Russian hackers have interfered in our elections. Just no.

    He continued, "People who are calling on Mr. Trump, the electoral college president, that's insulting to our democracy."

    No, Representative Collins. Here is what's insulting to our democracy. Republicans crawling into bed with a hostile foreign power to subvert our free and fair elections so they can assume power. That's insulting.

    In some countries, they call that a coup.

    When confronted by host Alisyn Camerota about how he can possibly say to just move on and it's fine, Collins threw his hands in the air, saying, "There's nothing we can do to change it. The truth came out."

    Actually, no. The truth has not come out. We know only the most basic information, which is that there is evidence that Russia interfered in our elections. That's all we know at this point. It's not enough.

      There is no morality there. Well, a little. But, like, no way am I believing in that show McConnell put on Mon. morning about how everyone should want the hacking to be looked into. McConnell looked like he was at the center of things when it came out Fri. that Obama had gone to Congress to get a bi-partisan group to agree that the whole hacking story needed to come out, and McConnell said no way. Mon. he came out acting upset to cover his ass. He will surely do things to get in the way of a full investigation.

      McConnell is a racist ass and led the obstruction against President Obama throughout his two terms.

      But, President Obama proved himself to be a smarter black man than McConnell (and his Republican ilk) had anticipated!

      President Obama and his administration worked 'around' the Republicans and were able to accomplish some wonderful things for America.

      Those very things he accomplished are supposedly going to be upended by the jerk Trump as soon as he takes office. I wonder how easily that will be able to do by Trump? Perhaps not such an easy task?

      I fear for our country with Trump, McConnell and Ryan leading the corruption of our country.

    Judge orders Colorado electors to vote for Hillary Clinton

    Colorado's nine electors must vote for Hillary Clinton because she won the state's popular vote, a judge ruled Tuesday, effectively stopping the state's electors from joining a longshot effort to unite with Republicans behind a compromise presidential candidate other than Donald Trump.

    Denver Judge Elizabeth Starrs also ruled that any electors who fail to do so can immediately be replaced when the Electoral College convenes Dec. 19. She responded to a request from Colorado's secretary of state, who was seeking a way to prevent electors from diverging from the winner of the state's popular vote.
