The Washington, D.C. Swamp is thick with official after official who seems ready and willing to violate any democratic norm to protect establishment power.

Now freedoms are under threat in ways that every American once thought unspeakable. 

And a rogue D.C. Judge just levied one bone-chilling punishment for exposing the Bidens.

Journalist Catherine Herridge was one of many employees who did not make the cut amid mass layoffs at Paramount.

The CBS reporter was let go despite her bona fides, and the timing was peculiar.

Herridge had been reporting on scandals related to the Bidens, which was a nonstarter for the establishment.

Journalistic violation

Worse yet, CBS seized her notes on the way out the door.

The union SAG-AFTRA ripped CBS to shreds, and the network was shamed into returning her documents.

But the harassment did not stop there.

A D.C. Judge ruled that Herridge was in contempt of court for refusing to disclose a source regarding a defamation suit.

American scientist Yanping Chen sued the federal government because she claimed that her personal information was leaked with regard to an FBI investigation into her ties to China.

Chen was never charged as part of the investigation.

Judge Christopher Cooper, an Obama appointee, fined Herridge $800 per day until she revealed her source, which she refused to do.

Cooper ruled, “The Court does not reach this result lightly…It recognizes the paramount importance of a free press in our society and the critical role that confidential sources play in the work of investigative journalists like Herridge. Yet the Court also has its own role to play in upholding the law and safeguarding judicial authority.”

Orange Man Bad justifies all

The Left once considered protecting sources sacrosanct, but all principles were abandoned after Donald Trump became President.

Independent Journalist Glenn Greenwald pointed out, “One of the most disgraceful things many journalists did in their Russiagate hysteria was *cheer* a deranged, FBI-loving blogger who not only ratted [out] her source to the FBI, but did so *voluntarily*, without anyone asking. And liberal fanatics like [Washington Post columnist Margaret Sullivan] *cheered* this.”

Herridge’s Attorney, Patrick Philbin, said in a statement, “Holding a journalist in contempt for protecting a confidential source has a deeply chilling effect on journalism…Fox News Media remains committed to protecting the rights of a free press and freedom of speech and believes this decision should be appealed.”

Judge Cooper is the same person who blocked Special Counsel John Durham from entering evidence against Hillary Clinton’s Attorney Michael Sussmann that would have proved he was the linchpin of the Russiagate hoax.

Sussmann lied to the FBI when he brought them evidence that allegedly tied Trump to a Russian bank; Sussmann said he was not connected to a campaign when he presented the evidence, but he was employed by Clinton.

The bank story turned out to be bogus.

The D.C. Swamp is very real, and Herridge’s latest struggles are proof.
