U.S. attorneys fallout seeps into courts
Defense lawyers in a growing number of cases are raising questions about the motives of government lawyers who have brought charges against their clients. In court papers, they are citing the furor over the U.S. attorney dismissals as evidence that their cases may have been infected by politics.
In effect, what could happen is that any defense attorney can say that the prosecution of her/his client is politically motivated and the seed is planted. The justice behind any case could be in question.
thanks, Mr. Gonzales. You've bolstered the justice system in ways that are unique...
