[Note: It doesn't really matter who is at the helm of Meet The Press. David Gregory, Chuck Todd, who really cares? I'm just writing about it because it gives me an excuse to run the featured image and to remind people that I still am litigating to get all the documents...
We have written about Mark Witaschek many times before.
Witashek was aggressively prosecuted the same D.C. Office of
Attorney General that refused to prosecute David Gregory for a
clear gun law violation, all because Witaschek was found in
inoperable shotgun shell and “muzzle loader” bullets,
Someone who’s not David...
David Brooks’ questioned whether Obama has a “manhood problem” in the Middle East.
Note the reaction Chuck Todd. Not even a head shake of disagreement. Neither David Gregory nor the other panelists jumped to Obama’s defense.
Yesterday, a D.C. Judge found Mark Witaschek guilty of “attempted possession of unlawful ammunition” for possessing an antique replica muzzleloader bullet.
Emily Miller at the Washington Times has thoroughly chronicled Mr. Witaschek’s court proceedings, which to date have spanned nearly two years and now appear likely to continue into...
Dinesh D’Souza allegedly violated campaign finance laws through a relatively small scheme to have friends donate $20,000 to Republican Senate candidate Wendy Long, who had little chance of defeating Kirsten Gillibrand in 2012.

I really enjoyed watching Meet The Press this morning.
It’s not that often that I watch live, usually restricting myself to watching clips.

Despite David Gregory’s insufferableness, this is a great Senator Ted Cruz interview
Twitchy has some of the reaction to Gregory’s performance today:
Remember when David Gregory grilled Obama this intensively?
Sorry, but I can’t help but add this end note:
Glenn Greenwald appeared on Meet The Press this morning.
The interview is garnering headlines, mostly for David Gregory’s suggestion that Greenwald is not a real journalist and question as to why Greenwald should not be prosecuted.
Not being prosecuted, of course, is something David Gregory knows a lot about.
In early January, we wrote about the ordeal of Nathan Haddad, who was being charged with 5 felony counts under New York State’s prior gun law, for possession of empty 30-round magazines, Injured special forces soldier arrested in upstate NY for possession of high capacity ammunition magazines.
The case arose just prior...

I wrote on Monday about the lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch on behalf of Legal Insurrection seeking documents withheld by the District of Columbia Office of Attorney General (OAG) and Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) regarding David Gregory’s clear violation of the D.C. gun laws,
Judicial Watch, a leading government open records organization, announced today that it has filed suit on behalf of Legal Insurrection to obtain documents regarding David Gregory’s violation of the District of Columbia gun laws and the investigation which led to the decision of the District of Columbia Attorney General not to prosecute:
One thing I just noticed.
