“CAIR is in trouble not only with its few surviving claims, but also with the possibility of a public trial that will most certainly expose CAIR for what it is – a subversive Islamist front group.”
This trial will be most interesting — hence Hamas-linked CAIR’s desperate attempts to stave it off.
Yesterday (December 17, 2015), Federal Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, sitting in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, denied the Council on American-Islamic Relation’s (CAIR) motion to reopen discovery in what has become known as the Muslim Mafia Trial.
CAIR, which bills itself as “America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization,” sued the Center for Security Policy – a national security policy think tank – and its employees for working on a documentary designed to expose CAIR’s Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas ties and other illegal activities.
The lawsuit initially began when, in 2008, CAIR sued Dave Gaubatz, a former highly decorated counter-terrorism specialist who worked in and out of uniform for the U.S. government for more than 20 years and served behind combat lines during the Iraq war, after he and his operatives, including his son Chris, went in undercover as CAIR interns. Once inside the organization, Gaubatz learned of multiple crimes committed by the Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front organization. As a result, well-known author, Paul Sperry, wrote a book outlining CAIR’s crimes and terror connections based upon Gaubatz’s information. The book revealed how Gaubatz trained his son to work as a CAIR intern and to gain access to the criminal evidence.
But, instead of an FBI criminal investigation of CAIR and Department of Justice indictment against CAIR for its criminal conduct, CAIR sued Gaubatz and his son for wiretapping and computer hacking, along with a whole host of other torts. To this day, the administration, even as it knows of CAIR’s Hamas and direct terror-related connections, has failed to bring charges against CAIR, providing the organization with the daylight to sue the Gaubatz father and son team.
Several years later, CAIR added several more defendants, including the Center for Security Policy (CSP), headed up by former Reagan administration official, Frank Gaffney, and several CSP employees. The thrust of the claim against the CSP defendants was that Dave Gaubatz’s operatives gained entry into CAIR while working on a CSP documentary about CAIR’s Muslim Brotherhood and terrorist connections.
