Royce C. Lamberth is a traitor.
In September 2010, Royce C. Lamberth, serving as Chief Judge in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, granted a Department of Justice request to overturn the order of two other federal judges. This decision allowed the Department of Justice to secretly snoop on FOX News reporter James Rosen.
Documents show that two judges separately declared that the Department of Justice was required to notify James Rosen of the search warrant, even if the notification came after a delay. Otherwise: “The subscriber therefore will never know, by being provided a copy of the warrant, for example, that the government secured a warrant and searched the contents of her e-mail account,” Judge John M. Facciola wrote in an opinion rejecting the (Department of Justice) Obama Administration’s argument.
The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza, a bulldog on the Department of Justice/Fox News secret subpoena story, reports that the effort by the Department of Justice to obtain the controversial court order was arduous, contentious and unsuccessful until finally Royce C. Lamberth the third judge acquiesced.
Judge Royce C. Lamberth is a traitor in violating the U.S. Constitution, for journalists should not be at legal risk for doing their jobs.
Note: Attorney General Eric Holder (another traitor) personally signed off on the warrant itself that allowed the Department of Justice to search Fox News reporter James Rosen’s personal email.
