Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly has granted CAIR a temporary restraining order against David Gaubatz and Chris Gaubatz. David Gaubatz is a co-author of Muslim Mafia. He and his son Chris are ordered to return all documents to CAIR.
You'll remember this week Rep. Sue Myrick held a press conference calling for an investigation into CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) as a result of the Gaubatzes new book Muslim Mafia. An undercover investigation into CAIR revealed a CAIR document stating that that two "fellowships" (interns) had been placed on Capitol Hill at a cost of $50,000.
The purpose of our press conference was to make public an internal CAIR memo that documented CAIR's stated goal of placing CAIR interns in the offices of members of Congress, especially the members who serve on the Homeland Security, Judiciary and Intelligence Committees.
Let me be clear here, CAIR, a group whom the FBI says is affiliated with the terrorist group HAMAS, is trying to place their interns in the offices of those members who serve on the three committees that handle national security related issues. National Security is the first responsibility of the federal government.CAIR immediately lashed out against Myrick with claims that she was investigating Muslims on Capitol Hill.
Chris Gaubatz, was an unpaid volunteer at CAIR and found the document, along with others, titled CAIR National 2007 Action Plan, retrieved, according to the court, under false pretenses and "without any consent or authorization."
Judge Kollar-Kotelly ordered the documents returned to CAIR by midnight November 18th and the temporary restraining order barred further use or publication of the material. How is that done when the book is already on the market?
According to WorldNetDaily, Daniel Horowitz is representing the Gaubatzes. He says to look at both sides of the judge:
"She is extremely intelligent and a strong supporter of the First Amendment," he said.That's one side. I don't blame Mr. Horowitz for remaining positive as he must appear in the Judge's courtroom,
So WorldNetDaily gives the other side:
She was among the judges who moved to rebuild the "wall of separation" between criminal investigators and intelligence agents cited by the 9/11 commission as a factor in the failure to detect the 9/11 plotRemember the 9-11 Commission hearings when Jamie Gorelick, a Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration, admitted her nurturing of the of the "wall of separation," actually she admitted to "building" the wall, which kept criminal investigators and intelligence agents from sharing vital information. Evidently, Kollar-Kotelly was a part of that effort. Read more about the Judge at The Volokh Conspiracy.
I wish Horowitz had "shared" the other side of the Judge with us. David Gaubatz says some of the restraining order has already been fulfilled and some documents are in the hands of authorities. In the meantime, it will be interesting to see what happens to Muslim Mafia.
