Freedom Watch: Klayman excoriates corrupt legal system as FBI “clears” Hillary Clinton of criminaliy

Jul 5, 2016 — Larry Klayman

Washington, D.C.,  Today, on news that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has stated that it will not recommend prosecution of Hillary Clinton for the illegal use of her private email server while Secretary of State, Larry Klayman, a former federal prosecutor and founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, had this comment:

“As I have said and written repeatedly, the legal system is corrupt to the core. It favors the establishment and covers up its misdeeds – by both Democrats and Republicans. It is a club that divides up the riches and shares power at the expense of the people, much like the National Football League has the American and National conferences.

Freedom Watch chairman mourns and salutes Emory students killed by ISIS because they would not read

Jul 3, 2016 — Larry Klayman

Washington, D.C.,  Larry Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch and now Freedom Watch, and a graduate of Emory Law School, commented today on the terrorist attack in Bangladesh which killed over 20 innocent persons, including two students from Emory University. The two Emory students were murdered by ISIS when they refused to read the Quran. Klayman had this to say:

“These Emory students and the others who were killed because they refused to read the Quran are true heroes and we mourn their loss. They are far more heroes than our president, who does read the Quran and who favors Muslims over Christians and Jews. Characteristically, Obama did not comment immediately on the Islamic terrorist attacks and is apparently choosing to ignore that these valiant students died because they refused to bow down to Allah. The President, who was born to a Muslim father and was schooled in Indonesia in Madrassa schools, chooses to largely ignore that Islam is the root cause of most terrorism, and is a national disgrace.”

Klayman says Obama speech on Orlando Islamic terrorist attack a national and international disgrace

Jun 12, 2016 — Larry Klayman

Washington, D.C.,— In the wake of the horrific Orlando Islamic terrorist attack, Larry Klayman, a former federal prosecutor, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, and a 2003-2004 candidate for the U.S. Senate in Florida, where the act of terrorism occurred, had this to say:

“The president’s speech today is a national and international disgrace. Being born to a Muslim father and schooled in Medrassa schools in Indonesia, and having as his friends and supporters domestic Muslim terrorist sympathizers like Rev. Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, President Barack Hussein Obama refuses to fight much less address Islamic terrorism in any meaningful way. It is no wonder that his speech today refused to even use the word ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ much less ‘Islamic terrorism,’ despite the shooter being of Afghani origin, and despite what the FBI revealed were his ties to ISIS. Indeed, it has been reported that at the time of the deadly attack, he repeatedly screamed ‘Allah Akbar.’ Prior to the deadly attack, he called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS. And just in the last hour ISIS claimed credit for the horrific attack.

Washington, D.C.—Today, Larry Klayman, former federal prosecutor and founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch issued this stinging statement upon news that President Barack Obama has endorsed the presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton.

“Hillary Clinton, who has a sordid past of illegalities, crimes and cover-up, and is embroiled in an on-going criminal investigation over her illegal use of a private email server while Secretary of State, has now been endorsed by her fellow criminal, President Barack Obama, who has perpetrated numerous scandals during his presidential administration, ranging from Benghazi-gate, to IRS-gate, to Fast and Furious-gate to Illegal Immigration-gate, and a myriad of others.

Trump right about judicial bias and prejudice

Jun 6, 2016 — Larry Klayman

Washington, D.C., Today, Larry Klayman, a former prosecutor for the U.S. Department of Justice who was on the trial team that broke up AT&T, and founder of Judicial Watch and now Freedom Watch, issued this statement in response to the overly harsh and dishonest criticism leveled against Donald Trump over federal judge Gonzalo Curiel’s alleged bias and prejudice against him.

Klayman has this to say: “This harsh criticism, designed to inflame Latino-Americans, and influence the upcoming presidential election by Hillary Clinton and the Republican establishment like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan (who would like to see Trump lose to Clinton so they can run their Republican establishment candidate against her in 2020), that Trump is racist as shown by his comments about the possible influence of federal judge Curiel’s Mexican-American heritage in making rulings in the Trump University case now before him, intentionally ignores reality and is intellectually and intentionally dishonest. So too is overly harsh reaction by the mainstream media about Trump’s claims.
