and just looooves the advice of, tells you a lot.
As a senior member of the Enron Task Force, Ms. Ruemmler prosecuted
four Merrill Lynch executives and sent them to prison on an indictment
that was “fatally flawed.” The conduct the prosecutors alleged was not
criminal. At the same time, she deliberately hid exculpatory evidence—that is, evidence she was constitutionally compelled to hand over to the defense. Indeed, the prosecutors not only acknowledge the evidence as exculpatory, they yellow-highlighted it as such—then buried it.
Not only did Ms. Ruemmler hide the evidence she had identified as
crucial to the defense, but she signed the false and misleading
“disclosure letter” to defense counsel. Ms. Ruemmler then elicited
hearsay testimony from witnesses that was directly contradicted by the
first-hand evidence she and her Task Force hid. She capitalized on and
compounded the injustice, repeatedly telling the court and jury “facts”
that were directly refuted by the evidence she hid.
Ms. Monaco was implicated in the prosecutorial misconduct that infected
the Enron Broadband case prosecution. Houston Judge Vanessa Gilmore was
irate with the prosecutors. They elicited false testimony from a
government witness, threatened witnesses for the defense with indictment
if they testified, and used evidence already ruled inadmissible.
Was that because of Ms. Monaco’s experience with the “terror of a
prosecutor” Leslie Caldwell, also from the Enron Task Force, who now
heads the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice? Ms. Caldwell
spearheaded the destruction of Arthur Andersen LLP and its 85,000 jobs
only to be reversed 9-0 by the Supreme Court because of the flawed
indictment and the absence of criminal intent.
So. Obama surrounds himself with corrupt, lying bastards who have contempt for the law. Big surprise. My question now is 'Why didn't any of these judges move to have them disbarred? To have them charged?'
Because the judges are lawyers, too, and the chickenshits seem to cover for each other no matter what. 'The judge was irate', but not enough to actually DO anything about it.
We're supposed to trust the legal system why, again?
