Here we go again, folks. More of the same type of tactics from the Obama Regime that we have seen throughout the administration and their reign of terror. This time, at least someone is attempting to strike back at the government, since watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the DOJ. This was done due to the fact that whistle blower John Dodson has had his own FOIA requests blocked and ignored.

Just a little bit of background to this suit and the multiple FOIA requests; you may recall in June 2012, Fortune Magazine writer Katherine Eban basically published a hit piece on Dodson. It was grossly false and thoroughly denounced and debunked by the House Oversight Committee and others. In response, Dodson and his attorney sent a letter to Fortune’s editor demanding a retraction. They also accused the magazine of simply parroting talking points given to them by the DOJ.

Now, Judicial Watch is striking back as well. They are requesting emails that were passed between Katherine Eban and DOJ spokeswoman/Director of Public Affairs Tracy Schmaler between January 20, 2011 and September 24, 2012. They are also requesting any internal memos, letters, drafts, recordings, and other documents that concern special agent John Dodson.

The reason why Schmaler was a concern is due to the fact that reports have surfaced of her abuse of power by regularly attempting to smear whistle blowers like J Christian Adams of the Blank Panther Party case, working with a number of far left groups. More from the Daily Caller:

“Internal Department of Justice emails obtained by the Daily Caller show Attorney General Eric Holder’s communications staff has collaborated with the left-wing advocacy group Media Matters for America in an attempt to quell news stories about scandals plaguing Holder and America’s top law enforcement agency.

Dozens of pages of emails between DOJ Office of Public Affairs Director Tracy Schmaler and Media Matters staffers show Schmaler, Holder’s top press defender, working with media Matters to attack reported covering DOJ scandals. TheDC obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act request.”

As you might suspect, Dodson had originally made similar requests out of suspicion that Schmaler might have been working together with Eban in attempt to leak information about him. For nearly two years, Dodson has been stonewalled in his efforts to receive any of this information and he now feels that the lawsuit is his last resort. He was the first whistle blower to go public about the Fast and Furious scandal back in the early part of 2011. His book, The Unarmed Truth: My Fight to Blow the Whistle and Expose Fast and Furious, was published late last year.

What do YOU think about this? Is it another example of how the Obama Regime does business…and maybe why we should all be scared? What do you think about the provisions of the Whistleblower Protection Act being totally disregarded in this case? Will we ever see justice done in this scandal?
