How could this go wrong? Guess who appointed This “Judge”? You guessed it, Bill Clinton!! This is getting out of hand!! The FBI was clearly biased and now we get a judge appointed by the Husband of Trump’s opponent in the Election. No Bias here, right?
“On the recommendation of Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Jones was nominated to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York by President Bill Clinton on October 18, 1995, to a seat vacated by Kenneth Conboy. She was confirmed by the United States Senate on December 22, 1995, and received a commission on December 26, 1995. Jones took senior status on December 31, 2012, and subsequently retired from the court on January 4, 2013, to go into private practice. She now works on white collar and financial fraud cases as a partner in the New York office of Bracewell LLP.”
Here is a case she presided on “Jones presided over Edith Windsor‘s suit against the United States, United States v. Windsor, challenging the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA. Windsor had married her same-sex partner, Thea Spyer, in Canada in 2007, and the couple lived in New York, which recognized same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions.When Spyer died in 2009, Windsor owed over $363,000 in federal estate taxes, which she would not have had to pay had her spouse been of the opposite sex. In her lawsuit seeking a refund of the tax payment, Windsor asserted that Section 3 of DOMA, which defines marriage under federal law as solely the union of one man and one woman, violated the constitutional guarantee of equal protection of the laws. Judge Jones agreed and granted summary judgment in favor of Windsor. The United States appealed, and the Second Circuit affirmed Judge Jones’s ruling. In a 5–4 decision issued on June 26, 2013, the Supreme Court struck down section 3 of DOMA (codified at 1 U.S.C. § 7) “as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment.”“
This ruling was also one that shows her character: “Jones served as an arbitrator in the NFL case against former RB Ray Rice. Rice received a 2-game suspension after a domestic violence incident left his then-girlfriend unconscious in the elevator after he struck her. Rice admitted to the NFL that he had struck her and that she had been knocked out. Months later, a video of the incident was released. Commissioner Goodell subsequently suspended Rice indefinitely, stating that the video showed a much more violent incident than Rice had led them to believe. Rice appealed, and won after Mrs. Jones found no evidence that Rice misled the NFL. Jones determined Goodell’s indefinite suspension to be “capricious” and “arbitrary” because he was essentially suspending Rice for the same incident twice. Jones’s ruling echoed much of the public sentiment to Goodell, as many media outlets hounded Goodell, asking, “did you really need to see the video to know that hitting a woman is violent?” Jones’s ruling was only that a player cannot be disciplined for the same incident twice, a rule akin to not allowing double jeopardy in the US criminal system”
This is unbelievable. She does not even work for America anymore. She is Retired!! This is more of the same conspiracy to take our Elected President down. If the Media was honest they would call it what it is TREASON!!~RJH
