 Exclusive from UJUAYALOGUSBLOG - ON THE JUDGES THAT WERE RECENTLY PICKED UP BY THE DSS...

High Court Justices arrested

This is Exclusive to UJUAYALOGUSBLOG from a reliable source in the USA.


I have lived in the USA for the last 20 years. There are some agencies in the USA that you never mess with - we fear them - and in order of importance, reach and power, they include:

1. The Internal Revenue Service

2. Department of Homeland Security

3. Federal Bureau of Investigation

4. The Drug Enforcement Agency

5. Anti Terrorist Force (ATF).

These are just a few. These agencies go after Businessmen, Judges Senators and Congressmen alike.

Under President Obama's tenure the following were picked up :

1. Scott Bloch (R) United States Special Counsel. pleaded guilty to criminal contempt of Congress for "willfully and unlawfully withholding pertinent information from a House Committee investigating his decision to have several government computers wiped ....".

On June 24, 2013, U. S. District Judge Robert L. Wilkins sentenced Bloch to one day in jail and two years' probation, and also ordered him to pay a $5000 fine and perform 200 hours of community service.

2. David Safavian (R) Administrator for the Office of Management and Budget where he set purchasing policy for the entire government. He was found guilty of blocking justice and lying, and sentenced to 18 months.

3. Lewis "Scott" Libby (R) Chief of Staff to Vice President Dick Cheney (R). 'Scooter' was convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice in the Plame Affair on March 6, 2007 and was sentenced to 30 months in prison and fined $250,000. His sentence was commuted by George W. Bush (R) on July 1, 2007.

4. Lester Crawford (R) Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, resigned after 2 months. Pleaded guilty to conflict of interest and received 3 years suspended sentence and fined $90,000.

5. Claude Allen (R) Director of the Domestic Policy Council, was arrested for a series of felony thefts in retail stores. (2006) He was convicted on one count and resigned soon after.

In the Legislative branch:

6. William J. Jefferson (D-LA) was charged in August 2005 after the FBI seized $90,000 in cash from his home freezer. He was re-elected to the House in 2006, but lost in 2008. He was convicted November 13, 2009, of 11 counts of bribery and sentenced to 13 years in prison. Jefferson's Chief of Staff Brett Pfeffer, was sentenced to 84 months for bribery.

7. Jack Abramoff CNMI scandal involves the efforts of Abramoff to influence Congressional action concerning U.S. immigration and minimum wage laws. See Executive branch convictions. Congressmen convicted in the Abramoff scandal include:

8. Bob Ney (R-OH) pleaded guilty to conspiracy and making false statements as a result of his receiving trips from Abramoff in exchange for legislative favors. Ney received 30 months in prison.

9. Duke Cunningham (R-CA) pleaded guilty November 28, 2005, to charges of conspiracy to commit bribery, mail fraud, wire fraud and tax evasion in what came to be called the Cunningham scandal and was sentenced to over eight years in prison.

10. Frank Ballance (D-NC) admitted to federal charges of money laundering and mail fraud in October 2005 and was sentenced to four years in prison.

11.  Bill Janklow (R-SD) was convicted of second-degree manslaughter for running a stop sign and killing a motorcyclist. Resigned from the House and given 100 days in the county jail and three years probation.

12.  Jim Traficant (D-OH) was found guilty on ten felony counts of financial corruption, sentenced to eight years in prison and expelled from the House of Representatives.

Most of them were picked up at night, and in their pajamas!

In the case of the Judges picked up by the DSS, don't forget that they were reported to the NJC by their own colleagues - i.e. fellow judges. For those condemning the DSS , what is it that you are complaining about? Is it method of arrests or is it because that the Judges were arrested? Neither is there a Nigerian law that says an arrest has to happen in daylight.

Those Judges are accused of  perverting justice at different Electoral Tribunals by their own colleagues - so we should allow a corrupt Judge's decision truncate the aspirations of genuine voters?

When are we going to start building national institutions that are bigger than single individuals? Have you all forgotten what happened to Justice Salami of the Federal Court of Appeals?

C'mon Nigerians, we either want to work toward a country that works for all or we don't!!
