John Solomon is an investigative reporter and executive vice president for The Hill.
On May 22, 2019, Southeastern Legal Foundation (SLF) filed a Motion for Publication of Records with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) on behalf of Solomon and SLF, seeking rulings, orders and opinions issued by the Court finding any of the attorneys associated with the Carter Page FISA applications violated rules of the Court or rules governing professional conduct by attorneys.
- "We face a serious crisis of public confidence in our judicial system. Our nation's highest law enforcement officers and government attorneys are suspected of lying, misleading and withholding information from the FISC in order to obtain permission to conduct surveillance on U.S. citizen Carter Page. If true, even in part, one of the most profound ways to help re-establish public trust in the rule of law is to hold these attorneys professionally and publicly accountable for their alleged grievous violations of the law and public trust," said Todd Young, SLF executive director.
Southeastern Legal Foundation successfully pursued Bar sanctions against sitting President Bill Clinton, ultimately resulting in the surrender of his law license on the last day in office and disbarment by the U.S. Supreme Court (1998-2001) as part of the Agreed Order of Discipline from Independent Counsel Robert Ray.
