This is incredible. This blog repeatedly calls attention to the criminalization of Republicans by the thug party. It's what they do. They destroy Republicans with any means necessary.
Democrats could never win on a level playing field. In the battle of ideas they have none. Statists never do. Look at their leadership, the worst crooks in the country. Chicago land politics, that's what "rose to the top".
It was only this past weekend that I posted on the terrible harassment, lawfare, and slanders the Democrats have perpetrated against Sarah Palin and her children.
Look what they did to Ted Stevens in the great state of Alaska. And while it's justice that the fallacious charges were dropped, the damage is done. The election is over and the democrats have stolen another seat. A special election should be called A/S/A/P.
The left is out of control and now with Obama's RAT bill ....................
'I've never seen anything approaching the misdeeds and the misconduct' in this case, federal Judge Emmet Sullivan says. The corruption conviction of Stevens, a former Alaska senator, is set aside.
"In nearly 25 years on the bench, I've never seen anything approaching the misdeeds and the misconduct I have seen in this case," U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan told a packed courtroom.
While setting aside the verdict today, Sullivan also pledged that he would launch his own criminal probe of the Justice Department's actions in the case, which included withholding key pieces of evidence and falsifying records.
In February, Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. replaced the team that tried Stevens and ordered the new group of lawyers to conduct a thorough review of the government's actions. After that was completed, Holder announced this month that the case should be dismissed because exculpatory evidence suggesting Stevens' innocence was never turned over to defense lawyers.
Sullivan praised Holder's actions -- and the Justice Department team that uncovered the prosecution's misdeeds. But Sullivan said he wanted a more public accounting of the department's actions.
The judge has named a Washington lawyer, Henry F. Schuelke III, to conduct a criminal contempt investigation, explaining that the department could not be trusted to investigate itself.
"The court has an obligation to determine what happened here and respond accordingly," Sullivan said.
