The Missing Story

Josh Marshall has the latest on the ongoing corruption case in San Diego.

Mark Geragos, as one would expect of a good criminal defense attorney, is making hay of the whole dust up between Carol Lam and DOJ officials in Washington.

But, here's Josh on what should be stunning to everybody:

... the DOJ was holding up the indictments. Why was that? And in that context what does her subsequent dismissal tell us? Let's not be fooled on this one. The White House and the politicals at the DOJ were and are doing everything it can to spring Wilkes and Foggo.

In this case, we already have two convictions including the longest prison sentence for a sitting U.S. Congressman in history. Two others have been charged including the No. 3 at the CIA. And the stink leads to some of the biggest and most powerful men in Congress (Lewis, Doolittle, Delay), to the Vice President's office, to the Pentagon and to the CIA.

But missing in action on this story is the establishment media. On the Duke angle, they were trumped by the San Diego Tribune. On the rest, they are simply MIA.

  • Hey Timmeh,

    Thanks for stopping by.

    I have little doubt you're more apt to put the wood to a blogger with maybe 5 readers than you are to take on the powerful Republicans who have so damaged this country and people's lives worldwide.
