LOL!! Barr McClellan has the stellar Billy Sol Estes, he of thrice-convicted swindling fame, as a character witness that convinced this grand jury of Johnson's guilt.

A grand jury, remember, can indict a ham sandwich. It can't convict anybody of anything.

I know about Billy Sol Estes character. If a person wants to do something illegal, who do you do it with, the local Boy Scout troop?
Do you have any thoughts on the Texas Ranger who testified, Peoples was his last name. Is he a scumbag too?
You are correct about Billy Sol Estes but he wasn't the only witness. Nor the only evidence.
Your comment about grand juries is correct, but Johnson's lawyers [law firm] should have responded to the charge but didn't. That was one of the points McClellan talked about in the book.

LOL!! Here we have the stellar 'sinky', he of FR fame as an expert judge of character, trying to convince us that Johnson was an honest man.

I'd rather believe a swindling Billy Sol Estes.
