Should Chertoff (& Myers) Be Disbarred?: Officer of the Court Did Not Report (or Do Anything) About Payments to Terrorists

By Debbie Schlussel
Earlier today, I told you how Michael “Serpenthead” Chertoff, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, did nothing as Assistant U.S. Attorney General, when he discovered that a U.S. company was making payments to a terrorist group.
As an attorney and officer of the court, he had a duty to report this to his boss, Attorney General John Ashcroft. And as Assistant Attorney General of the United States, overseeing all criminal investigations, he had a duty to take action to stop the criminal payments from going on. Instead, he did nothing and tacitly agreed to the continuation of the illicit payments.

That makes him criminally culpable as a co-conspirator, but is also certainly grounds for a grievance against him as an attorney. I’m not sure to which State Bar(s) he belongs, though I’d suspect he, at least, belongs to the State Bar of New Jersey, where he was a Judge and Justice Department official. Maybe other attorneys or DHS employees have some insight on this.
But certainly Mr. Chertoff should be investigated by the body which issues his license to practice law.

Did The ICE Princess Cover Up a Federal Crime, Know of Funding Terrorists?

(Julie Myers Diet Coke by David Lunde)

Then, there’s Julie L. Myers, Chieftess of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) a/k/a “The ICE Princess.” She surely knew about Chertoff’s silence on this matter, as the White House personnel person, vetting candidates for the job. As such, since she, too, is a licensed attorney (again, I don’t know where; perhaps, Missouri), she had a duty to report Chertoff to the Bar. And she had a responsibility to report him to criminal authorities. Then, there’s the question–since she worked for Chertoff at Justice–whether she was in on the meeting disclosing the Chiquita-terrorist payments or otherwise knew of them in that capacity. If so, she had a duty to report this to Ashcroft, etc. If she knew and didn’t, then she, again, is vulnerable to a grievance.
And to think, President Bush reportedly wants to make this woman a Federal Judge. Oy vey.

Also, did the ICE Princess report her friend Wayne L. Baker, when he used his position as her ICE attorney to get federal agents and Assistant U.S. Attorneys to drop the case against his brother-in-law, James P. (J.P.) Ronayne (formerly McCarthy) [USA v. Ronayne, Case No. 1:07cr207, U.S. District - New Mexico (Albuquerque)], indicted on federal drug charges?
If not–since as an attorney, she had a duty to report him–that’s also grounds for a serious grievance.

LOL, I love the pitcure. Seriously now, if Chertoff failed do his job by protecting us, I mutually agree he should be disbarred from his position or at least resign from Homeland Security just as an employee who no longer is capable working up to the satisfaction of his/her employer and therefore is given a pink slip. Evidently, the State Department needs to purge from these back bending terrorist/illegal immigrant pandering spineless wusses. If they won’t protect us, then we can protect ourselves without them.

Chertoff (the cadaver) needs to be disbarred at the very least. Dereliction of duty. Bush needs to be impeached for foisting the moronic Gonzales on us. Have at it, lefties. Bush showed contempt for the base once too often.

One has to wonder just how corrupt the Bush administration has become:
Six unconditional, unescorted border pass cards, issued to a known drug cartel mule, Osbaldo Aldrete-Davila, even after being caught with a second load of Marijuana in the Ramos & Compean case. A known drug cartel mule given use immunity and then uses the prosecutions border pass to bring 752 pounds of marijuana across the Mexican border in broad daylight.
Numerous Border Patrol Agents prosecuted by rogue federal prosecutor Johnny Sutton for criminal and civil rights violations after the Mexican Government demands prosecution at highest levels of the Bush administration.
The National Guard has been pulled from the border and BP Agents are afraid to enforce the law out of fear for being prosecuted by Prosecutor Johnny ìSatanî, ala Mike NiFong, Johnny Suttonís reign of terror on BP Agents has a chilling effect on Border Enforcement.
DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff allows payments to a Columbian Terrorist Cartel and continues to refuse to build the fence and enforce Illegal immigration at the Mexican Border.
Would it be a stretch that the Bush administration is running a protection racket for the Drug Cartels in Mexico and South America? Follow the money.

I secretly admire Chiquita for protecting its people. Isreal gave tow missiles to Iran to protect it people, the U.S. gave Iran weapons for its people, all of which get used against our troops eventually, Chiquita gives ‘em money much more practical.
I don’t agree with helping them ship arms, if that is true. But, giving them money the company would have to bleed to protect their people anyway (security can easily run 10,000 USD a week down there for a business group) seems almost admirable.
Skull head may have saved some lives by not jumping into the middle of it. The larger question is how is it that we pump 4.5 billion USD into the country and can’t protect our businessmen?
How many bananas do you have to sell to hire the former US Attorney General, anyway? How do I get a job there? Which way to the banana boat?
