Prosecutorial Misconduct?

The Justice Department moved on Wednesday morning to drop all charges against former Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska, who narrowly lost his seat last year shortly after being convicted on seven felony counts of ethics violations.

In a stunning development, Justice Department lawyers told a federal court that they had discovered a new instance of prosecutorial misconduct in the case and asked that the convictions be voided. There would be no new trial in the case.
Attorney General Eric Holder Jr., who made the decision to move to drop the charges, said in a statement that "I have concluded that certain information should have been provided to the defense for use at trial.” He said it was "in the interests of justice” to dismiss the indictment and forgo any new trial.

Mr. Stevens’s lawyers, Brendan V. Sullivan, Jr. and Robert M. Cary, issued a statement on Wednesday welcoming the decision, decrying the conduct of the prosecutors in the case and hailing Mr. Holder as “a pillar of integrity in the legal community.” The statement called the case “a sad story and a warning to everyone” that “any citizen can be convicted if prosecutors are hell-bent on ignoring the Constitution.”

Well, I think that is obvious.

The Godless Liberals are trying to Persecute White Christian America because they do not support the Unitary Executive Principle.

Clearly if the case had been allowed to stay as is, then all true americans would be MORE Supporting Komrade party leader for having supported stephens before she didn't, as well as all of those who supported that of course there is no real reason for Habeus Corpus, since, if a person is detained, of course they are a Terrorists!!!

So this is just more of the same old failed liberal agenda of Destroying Freedom!!!
