Judicial Watch: FBI Records Indicate Fauci Agency Funded Gain-of-Function Wuhan Lab Research ‘Would leave no signatures of purposeful human manipulation’

Judicial Watch announced recently it received 5 pages of records from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that show an April 2020 email exchange with several officials in the bureau’s Newark Field Office referring to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China as including “gain-of-function research” which “would leave no signature of purposeful human manipulation.”

Texas Border Operation Captures Half a Million Illegal Immigrants, Thousands of Felons

The Biden administration’s failure to secure the Mexican border forced Texas officials to establish a security initiative that has endured heavy criticism from Democrats and the media despite its success in apprehending hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants—including thousands of criminals—and seizing millions of lethal doses of fentanyl. It is known as Operation Lone Star, and it was launched by Governor Greg Abbott in March 2021 as the illegal immigration crisis gripped his border state. Under the program, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the Texas National Guard pick up the slack for the federal government, which is charged with protecting the famously porous southern border but has failed miserably to do so. Operation Lone Star works to stop the smuggling of drugs, weapons and people into Texas, and interdict transnational criminal activity between ports of entry.

Judicial Watch Sues Intelligence Chief for Damage Assessment on Joe Biden’s Mishandling of Classified Documents

Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after ODNI failed to comply with a February 21, 2024, FOIA request for damage assessments and equity reviews performed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence related to the materials improperly removed by Biden.

Jailed Felons among Thousands who Scammed COVID Relief Program out of Billions of Dollars

A few days ago, it published an update on its work and American taxpayers should be furious.

Patronis flips script on Whitehouse, demands any records related to wife and Citizens Insurance

The Sun Sentinel

In a letter to Whitehouse, Patronis said he found the Democratic senator’s requests in November and March for information about Citizens Property Insurance Corp. “especially alarming” in light of an ethics complaint by conservative foundation Judicial Watch asserting that Whitehouse voted for environmental projects that financially benefitted his wife’s consulting business.

Judicial Watch routinely targets Democrats and members of the Biden Administration with lawsuits and Freedom of Information Act requests, and then posts stories about the requests on its website.


Riot revisited: Trump’s plan to pardon Jan. 6 defendants

Washington Examiner

Some, such as Tom Fitton, president of the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch, say the term hostages is a “fair analysis” and that Trump would be right to wield pardon power in their favor.

“These are folks who are the victim of government abuse,” Fitton told the Washington Examiner. “Call them what you will. They need to be pardoned. They need to have their sentences commuted.”


Why can’t Donald Trump stop verbally attacking judges, prosecutors – and anybody who crosses him?

The Independent

Tom Fitton, the president of the conservative organisation Judicial Watch, says Mr Trump is right to criticise the legal system, including judges, arguing that many of his complaints are “well-founded”.

“It’s his absolute right as a citizen to raise these issues, and certainly as a criminal defendant and presidential candidate there are even heightened First Amendment protections for what he has said,” he tells The Independent. “Unfortunately, we have too many judges acting politically as opposed to following and applying the law in an unbiased manner.
