Goin' back to Joan Lefkow and Sheila Foster Anthony: Sheila Foster Anthony is one of the ones that can potentially either confirm or not confirm Lefkow's elevation in status.

According to the operation of the Justice Department, Sheila Foster Anthony heads up the nominating/selection procedure. The Justice Department, through the FBI, screens appointees. Before the president appoints a new federal district judge, it has to go through a screening process. And then that screening process is reviewed by the Senate Judiciary Committee, prior to the whole Senate voting on ratifying the appointment.

Lefkow is a U.S. Magistrate Judge, pending ratification, to the district court bench. The ratification has been held up, in part because of that we complained about her, that she allowed a Justice Department official to threaten me outside her door -- she's a witness to it! And there's a direct connection to [Vince] Foster's sister.

Further than that, you may recall I had commented (and I think you put my comments out on Internet), I had commented on Foster's brother-in-law, Sheila Foster's husband Beryl Anthony, who is a top official of the Winston and Strawn law firm, in their District of Columbia office. The chairman of that firm is the former governor of Illinois, Jim Thompson. And in a television show, I've accused him and his law firm of being involved in massive smuggling of high-purity heroin, called "China White", through Joliet, Illinois.

Okay, but goin' back to this Lefkow and Sheila Anthony: so that if Lefkow wants to get an elevation in status, there's a conflict of interest, that, on your matters that are...

Yeah. In a petition that I just filed, in court, I'm bringing the matter up before her supervisor, who's a district judge: Wayne Andersen. In other words, Magistrate Lefkow works under the wing of U.S. District Judge Wayne Andersen.

I brought up a petition to him, pending now, that she shouldn't rule on anything involving me because she allowed, permitted, and condoned that I be threatened with terrible harm for having brought out these things like the $50 million transfer of RTC funds for the Whitewater thing; that Lefkow heard the situation of me being threatened by a Justice Department official right outside her door and didn't do anything to protect me as a litigant. In law, it's called "obstruction of justice": if you threaten physical or other harm against a litigant or witness in court, you're violating a federal criminal statute.

In other words, you can't go around threatening all kinds of harm against a witness or litigant in court and not be subject to federal criminal law! She didn't do anything to protect me.

All right. I guess what I'm lookin' for is like a quid pro quo: that Sheila Foster Anthony can confirm Lefkow's elevation in return for...

Well she's not... Well... It's not as simplistic as that.

Sheila Foster Anthony is the head of the legislative affairs department of the Justice Department, okay? And she plays an instrumental role in the nominating process as to who, if anyone, gets appointed as a federal official, of the three categories I mentioned: U.S. Marshall, U.S. Judge, and U.S. District Attorney.

So Sheila Foster Anthony plays a key role in that. And what she does and says, and records which she keeps of the screening process that she is in charge of, could make or break an appointee!

All right, but what I don't understand is that, all right, so she's got some power over Lefkow. But...

Yeah. She's...

...But what is she...

...Lefkow. I said in my petition in court just recently, that it's being manipulated. In other words, they're threatening Magistrate Lefkow that, if she doesn't do somethin' to squelch Skolnick, that she won't ever become a district judge.

Okay. All right. That was basically what I was trying to figure out.

That's a matter of record! I've made that contention in court: that she allows me to be threatened by a Justice Department official outside of her door because of a cover-up! And the cover-up of the Lynette Redmer confession, that you know about.
