    Huh? What?

    You have already shown that is all you will do.
    And yet you continue to think you can bully someone into conversing with you even though they already know you are going to deny?

    I have now asked you SIX times to poke a hole in the grand jury's reasoning. Instead of doing that, you have told me that I have been shown some stuff that you think is relevant. Quite dishonest. Look, this is easy. My 12 year old grandniece can give an answer to this simple question. Are you as up to answering a simple question as she is? Here it is for the SEVENTH time. What flaw do you see in this reasoning?

    1) The law says that, if you intend to harm another by misusing government property that has come into the possession of the government employee by virtue of his or her employment, then you have committed a crime.

    2) The property in question consists of the funds for the Public Integrity Unit.

    3) The employee in question is Assistant DA Rosemary Lehmburg.

    4) Had Perry not made any threat, and just cancelled the funds, he could have given any reason he wanted, within reason... For example "The Public Integrity Unit is a waste of taxpayer money, and so I am vetoing the funds".

    5) However, Perry issued a threat against Lehmburg and her office. This was AFTER a grand jury already decided that she could keep her job.

    6) In making the threat, Perry showed that his action, if taken, would be to act against a public employee by using property of the state of Texas as a weapon.

    7) When Perry then carried out this threat, under the laws of the State of Texas, Perry had harmed Lehmberg by misusing government property (the funds).

    8) Perry has been indicted for that.

    How many time do we need to go around the mulberry bush for you to understand what was already said?

    It has already been done, and you know it.
    I told you I will not rehash what has already been pointed out to you since all you do is deny it.

    What do you not understand about that?

    Really? Why don't you show the post where the following reasoning was already refuted? You can't because it doesn't exist. Is that how you answer questions? By telling lies? Here is the question for the EIGHTH TIME. Poke a hole in the grand jury's reasoning here. And please, no more lies....

    1) The law says that, if you intend to harm another by misusing government property that has come into the possession of the government employee by virtue of his or her employment, then you have committed a crime.

    2) The property in question consists of the funds for the Public Integrity Unit.

    3) The employee in question is Assistant DA Rosemary Lehmburg.

    4) Had Perry not made any threat, and just cancelled the funds, he could have given any reason he wanted, within reason... For example "The Public Integrity Unit is a waste of taxpayer money, and so I am vetoing the funds".

    5) However, Perry issued a threat against Lehmburg and her office. This was AFTER a grand jury already decided that she could keep her job.

    Let me guess though, you are still going to try to push for something that just isn't gonna happen.
    Figures.
    You are wrong because you do not understand. Just like you did not understand what Governor Ferguson was indicted for or that it wasn't even the same issue.

    Once again, you lie, and everybody here can see it, plain as day. There IS NO post that points out where the flaw is in the grand jury's reasoning. It doesn't exist. You just made it up, just like you always do, when you are too lazy or dishonest to answer a question.

    For the NINTH time, answer a simple question. Where is the flaw in this reasoning?

    1) The law says that, if you intend to harm another by misusing government property that has come into the possession of the government employee by virtue of his or her employment, then you have committed a crime.

Isn't the President coercing an outcome by using the power of his office?
    Obama has never tried to get rid of a member of a congress for one. Bills are just that bills, many do die for a whole host of reasons.

    You would have a point if Obama said he would sign a bill into law if X stepped down or he would veto a bill if Y didn't step down.

    A grand jury has decided that there's enough evidence for a trail, and I hope that Perry gets stuck.
    Ding ding ding. We have a winner!
