US IRS And DoJ - Same Corruption, Same Greed

The stench of Eric Holder's DoJ continues to astound. Of course there is no media attention:
Corrupt federal prosecutors presenting false evidence in order to shake down a blameless corporation and bring in tens of millions of dollars seems like a pretty dramatic story. Especially when former prosecutors support the charge and a chief judge acts on the allegations and takes dramatic action. Yet the media silence is deafening.

Eric Holder’s Justice Department is implicated in a dramatic and shocking case of alleged corruption that is so bad that the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California has taken what can rightly be called the “nuclear option” and recused all the judges in the district from the case because they may have been defrauded by the DoJ prosecutors.
The short of it is the feds filed a law suit and lied about the evidence in order to fleece a company out of millions.

The order reads, in part:
Defendants base their Motion on the grounds that the United States' prosecution of this action constituted a fraud upon the Court when the United States attorneys and the Moonlight Fire investigators and their counterparts in co-pending state actions, operating under a joint prosecution agreement with the United States, advanced a corrupt and tainted prosecution, violated Defendants' due process rights, and engaged in investigatory and prosecutorial misconduct.

Defendants allege that this misconduct was perpetrated by officers of the Court and ultimately tampered with the administration of justice, in a manner that wronged not only Defendants, but also the Court and the public. 

According to Defendants, the government's misconduct compromised the judicial process and amounts to an unconscionable scheme designed to improperly influence the Court's decisions in this case. In fact, Defendants state that they perceive the Court itself as a victim “as it has neither had the chance to fully assess the trust it naturally placed in certain federal prosecutors nor the ability to do so in the context of all that was eventually discovered about the thoroughly corrupt and financially driven Moonlight Fire investigation.”

[...]Accordingly, all District and Magistrate Judges in the Eastern District of California are RECUSED from hearing case number 2:09-cv-02445 and all related matters. This matter is REFERRED to Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge of the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, for the assignment of a judge other than from the Eastern District of California to sit by designation and hear case number 2:09-cv-02445 and all related matters

On the left side of the aisle it's OK to lie to win an argument.
