bill clinton was sued by HIS EQUAL, a united states citizen by name of paula jones for sexual harrassment because she says he dropped his pants in a little rock hotel room and asked her to "kiss it"
she was a STATE EMPLOYEE at the time and he was GOVERNOR of arkansas
their relationship was therefore by definition NOT equal which is the very definition of sexual harrassment
bosses (like eric massa) have NO RIGHT making comments like that to their SUBORDINATES who rightly and naturally fear the potential consequences of saying no
on the witness stand bill clinton LIED
his impeachment was NOT about sex, it was about his LYING on the witness stand
eric holder, as bill clinton's #2 at justice under janet reno, orchestrated the marc rich pardon in return for 7 figure, i believe, donations to the clinton library
mr rich was one of the top white collar criminals of his era who was forced to flee the country
his ex wife is one of the top country music songwriters in america's history and she lobbied tirelessly and futilely for years on behalf of her ex husband
until she met mr's clinton and holder, at which point the pardon went thru like very expensive peanut butter
eric holder also directed the pardon of the faln terrorists responsible for the deaths of a number of police and armed service employees
It's honestly not that different. First, as I mentioned above, there is a huge overlap between the two groups. In fact, I'd wager than more than 90% of the US Attorneys have spent some time working as defense counsel. Second, 90% of the job of being a prosecutor or defense attorney is knowing how the system works, what is or is not permissible, etc. If you're working on one side, you necessarily know how the other side operates. As a defense attorney in these cases, you know the exact rules that the other side has to follow, what types of material they can or cannot use, how much coordination they can have with investigators, who they can share their information with, etc. Similarly, as an AUSA, you know exactly who the other side is representing, who they're in a joint defense agreement with, what their argument is, etc. In addition, both sides generally know what the other side's end goal is and what they're going to do next in order to get there.You're right, it is routine for prosecutors to go into defense work (particularly white collar corporate gigs), but DOJ attorneys regularly work with federal law enforcement agencies to map out federal cases. That's different.
In order to be a good defense attorney of this caliber, you have to know exactly how the AUSA's do their job. In order to be a good prosecutor, the same is true. 90% of great defense attorneys would (and do) make great prosecutors and vice versa.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Fine, Holder dismissed the charges on a civil suit against thugs who used deadly weapons to intimidate white voters away from a polling place in a predominantly black neighborhood.
The next question is, outside of the fact that Holder is either a racist or a political hack, and not in the least bit concerned with upholding the law, is why criminal charges weren't filed. So was Holder a racist for not insisting criminal charges be filed, or is he a racist for simply dismissing the case out of hand after the defandants defaulted by not appearing for trial?
That's the real issue. Try to stay focused on what's important next time.
Whenever you're discussing the Clinton Whitehouse, or the Red Queen Herself, always look for the money trail and the corruption trails. They're always there somewhere.
