Rocke-Treason-Gate II

Usually when someone resigns they write a letter explaining the reasons for their resignation.

Except when you are Judge James Robertson:

"U.S. District Judge James Robertson, one of 11 members of the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, sent a letter to Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. late Monday notifying him of his resignation without providing an explanation."

Now according to the WAPO, two "sources" say:

"Two associates familiar with his decision said yesterday that Robertson privately expressed deep concern that the warrantless surveillance program authorized by the president in 2001 was legally questionable and may have tainted the FISA court's work.

Robertson, who was appointed to the federal bench in Washington by President Bill Clinton in 1994 and was later selected by then-Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist to serve on the FISA court, declined to comment when reached at his office late yesterday."

To which the WAPO makes the jump that he must have resigned in protest. To which I say, "Bull Crap!"

Folks, the WAPO, and the rest of the MSM would like to think that we are all morons that hang on their every word of "explaination" and "insight". But not I, you're Mac Ranger, who says, "Who in the hell are you jiving with this kosmik debri?"

If Judge Robertson was so 'passionate' about his beliefs, he could have so stated his reasons himself. He wouldn't need the Washington Post to explain them to us through two 'anonymous sources'.

Judge Robertson resigned for one reason. He leaked the story to the NY Times along with Senator Jay Rockefeller. He resigned (fell on the sword) to divert the obvious questions about elsewhere. They won't.

How's that for a "jump"?

Proof? Well, we could start with the letter he wrote to Chief Justice John Roberts, I believe it falls under the FOIA. Perhaps someone could get a copy?

In anycase, the call remains, that in light of these unanswered questions that Senator Jay Rockefeller possibly, and on several occassions has been suspected of leaking, and/or conspiracy with our enemies should at least, in light of the accusations, step down from the Senate Intelligence Committee in the interest of National Security until a full investigation into his activities from 2002-present are completed.
