Ok - so there is a law about plotting a wiretap? Is plotting a crime?
snip...FBI Special Agent Steven Rayes alleges that O'Keefe aided and abetted two others, Joseph Basel and Robert Flanagan, who dressed up as employees of a telephone company and attempted to interfere with the office's telephone system.
Ok - so Okeefe is sitting in the reception area when two clowns in costume try to mess with the phones. So I suppose "plotting" and being there when the guys try to mess with the phones is not good.
...A fourth person, Stan Dai, was accused of aiding and abetting Basel and Flanagan. All four were charged with entering fedral property under false pretenses with the intent of committing a felony.
Entering a federal property under false pretense - thats kinda vague.
It could all be a set-up. OKeefe makes an appointment to interview, goes in there and waits, and then BAM these arrests and how does he defend himself. Set up is a very high possibility.
Yep... it's called 'Conspiracy to commit a crime', which is a felony. I'm no lawyer, but I believe it doesn't even matter what the crime is. If you hatch a jaywalking plot with your buddies, it's a Conspiracy rap.
This was her office?...in N.O.?
How is that “federal” property?
And if it is...why wasnt anyone ever convicted of federal crimes for trashing GOP rep offices?
