On January 5, 2017, A Just Cause posted a letter (bit.ly/2hYhKvW) to President Obama's Facebook account on behalf of wrongly-convicted IRP6 defendant David Banks who wrote to President Obama concerning clemency petitions for him and his codefendants (Kendrick Barnes, Clinton A. Stewart, Demetrius K. Harper, Gary L. Walker and David A. Zirpolo), which have been pending for 2 years. On January 10th, A Just Cause posted another letter to Obama from David Banks (bit.ly/2iDKZSA), in addition to letters from other IRP6 codefendants, Harper (bit.ly/2jBEioc), Zirpolo (bit.ly/2jsZc4M), and Stewart (bit.ly/2j6NvBF). In November 2015, former federal appeals judge H. Lee Sarokin (U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals), who exhaustively reviewed the case, sent a letter to President Obama, stating he felt a "grave injustice" had been done to the men and that there are a "series of events that cries out for clemency," which included a gross 5th Amendment violation where the trial judge forced the PRO SE defendants to testify against their will after threatening to terminate their defense (www.huffingtonpost.com/judge-h-lee-sarokin/the-case-of-the-missing-t_1_b_5340397.html). The transcript of the judicial coercion mysteriously disappeared and was unavailable for appeal and the men were sent to prison in violation of the law. Congressman Danny Davis (D-IL) and U.S. Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) have sent letters to Obama concerning the IRP6's clemency. Within the last 6 months, Republican Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) initiated an investigation into the IRP6 case through the Inspector General's office after receiving information from A Just Cause.
