2017/05/27 – Obama Donor Judge Threatens Pro-Life Journalists With Contempt Charges For Releasing Video – The Federalist
A federal judge who donated nearly a quarter of a million dollars to President Obama’s campaign has threatened to hold undercover reporter and pro-life activist David Daleiden in contempt of court after his organization released video footage of Planned Parenthood employees admitting that abortion involves killing a baby.
“Given that we might actually both agree that there’s violence in here, ask me why I come to work everyday,” she said in the footage from the National Abortion Federation’s 2014 and 2015 conventions. “Let’s just give them all the violence, it’s a person, it’s killing — let’s just give them all that.”
Because Daleiden and his colleague Sandra Merritt are facing 14 felony charges in California for recording “confidential communications,” in a statement provided to National Review their attorneys said the footage has been entered into public legal records due to the court proceedings and is therefore public information.
