Opinion: Department of Injustice

Mar 17, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Wall Street Journal

Something is very rotten at the U.S. Department of Justice. No other reasonable conclusion can be drawn from an independent report on the 2008 prosecution of then-Senator Ted Stevens.

I hope not. It looks like he's working to ensure that the injustices like the ones against Republican Ted Stevens under the Bush Supreme Court aren't committed again.
What is the Bush Supreme Court and what do they have to do with the DOJ's corruption that gave the liberals the balance of power and a 60th vote for ObamaScare.

The DOJ at the time was not only Republican but was being stocked with "Bushies". Bush was using it as his political hit squad. I just don't know what their motivation was in going after Stevens. Beside the fact that he was a crook.

The article is about rogue liberal prosecutors hiding evidence to smear Stevens right before the election so that a democrat can win his seat and vote yea to OdummyCare and Holder has yet to reprimand those rogue liberal prosecutors who abused their power.
Anything else I can help you with, illiterate one?
Let us not forget that there was substanial OUTRIGHT FRAUD in the Minnesota Senate Campaign in 2008 where AL Franken stole the elecrion from Norm Coleman, giving Obama another vote on the Medicare destroying "Obamacare".

There were areas in which he, Franken, did better than Obama in the voting despite Coleman being more popular than McCain state-wide AND a number of precincts where there were MORE votes cast then there were registered voters.

Plus. "as the Wall Street Journal's John Fund reports, Minnesota Democrat Al Franken’s narrow, 312-vote victory in 2008 over incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman may have come as the result of people being allowed to vote who, under existing law, shouldn’t have been."

"At least 341 convicted felons voted in Minneapolis's Hennepin County, the state's largest, and another 52 voted illegally in St. Paul's Ramsey County, the state's second largest. Dan McGrath, head of Minnesota Majority, says that only conclusive matches were included in the group's totals. The number of felons voting in those two counties alone exceeds Mr. Franken's victory margin."

"Beside the fact that he was a crook."

Were you refering to Stevens??? The WITHHELD evidence proved that the Senator was innocent.

As to the prosecuting attorneys in this outrage, they need at the very least to be fired and disbarred.

From the article:

"According to the exhaustive study ordered by Judge Emmet Sullivan, government attorneys engaged in 'systematic concealment' of 'significant exculpatory evidence which would have independently corroborated Senator Stevens's defense and his testimony, and seriously damaged the testimony and credibility of the government's key witness.'"

One of the questions on the DOJ application was “What is it about President Bush that makes you want to serve him?”. It was a serious question and carried a lot of weight in the hiring decision.
First of all, President Bush is no longer in office. He left 4 yrs. ago. You people cannot seem to get over it and place Obama's mistakes on a guy who isn't in office. Eric Holder and the DOJ are sueing states left and right under Obama's orders. I ask you what happened to make you hate America?

2008. Hmmmmm, who was president at that time? What was his name?
Shrub? Plant? Bush?

Any Republican's memory go back that far or is that too much to expect?

Four years ago? Let' see. Obama was sworn in on January 20th 2009. That's three years and two months ago.
You can't do the math?

You would think he could have found some leadership in 3 years 2 months. Maybe later, he's got nearly 10 months to go.

Whoever was President, it is VERY, VERY IMPORTANT to see this matter through to its conclusion. The whole election process becomes a SHAM when a decision is made by individuals in a governmental body, in this case the DOJ, to sabotage a trial by withholding critical evidence that might prove the innocence of the accused.

If this can be done to a United States Senator, it certainly can happen to an average citizen.

We also know that the DOJ has Republicans and Democrats in it REGARDLESS of who is President and cases could be driven by political leanings. This is ONE CASE where the particulars must be forthcoming.

Why do you keep harping on Bush? He's long gone and his actions are a thing of past. Obama ram on CHANGE-but it's only gotten worse instead of better like he led us to believe. And his administration was going to be so transparet, that's why to find out what is in a Bill, you have to pass it first. Gotta hand it to him, he really suckered all.
