Members of Eric Holder's Justice Department were the ones who pressured the state to prosecute. Prosecutors chose to forgo the grand jury at the recommendation of Justice Department. All this was covered again and again and again and again on the trial threads. The verdict thread alone should tell you everything you would ever want to know.
I already know everything you just wrote, and it’s from multiple sources, not just the threads.
(I appreciate your concise summary though.)
But did you REALLY cover EVERYTHING? Are you SURE? If you are really SO sure that EVERYTHING is already covered and summarized and clear and accessible and validated about this, GREAT, make that clear to everyone instead of just saying, in essence, “go do research” to people who might have, for all you know, been out of touch, doing a mission in Uganda!
(EVERYTHING! I can just hear Ed McMahon now, only older people are likely to get that...)
However, the subject of this thread (as I take it, being perhaps a little forgiving on the subject) in some ways is more of a rhetorical question, designed to promote a FreeRepublic RE-EXAMINATION of the issue.
That is the kind is MICROSCOPIC RE-EXAMINATION scrutiny that FreeRepublic does! Don’t try to stop us!
Sometimes an ARRAY of sensors honing in on an issue provides better resolution!
That is why I COMMENT when someone (you) basically DENIGRATES an effort to promote a “group array” to investigate an issue that (only) YOU think is “cut and dried” but that may NOT in fact be so “cut and dried”!!!
And it is right when when we are about to get down to the serious issue of the prosecution of criminal actions by public officials.
This is a good thread.
