Indictment a comin!

Just heard on WSB radio that the federal prosecutor is indeed presenting evidence on the McKinney case to a grand jury. They don't usually do that for a misdemeanor. Felony obstruction? This just whets the appetite for details.

A legal friend mentioned they may have a problem piercing congressional immunity. We'll see!

Congressional immunity from arrest won't be a problem. The Supreme Court precedent says it's not applicable in criminal cases and it's been argued before (and failed). Back in the day when there was immunity from arrest, it was for civil cases where arrests used to be common, not criminal cases. Plus, in any event, she wasn't engaged in official speech & debate (but that really goes to alleged cases of slander). ~Ilsa

I thought that might be the case. Otherwise the fed prosecutor wouldn't even bother.

Welcome to the Drift, Miss Ilsa. Soon I will have such a bevy legal eagles that all shall bow down and worship!

It seems that she's now apologizing for the thing that she wouldn't admit to doing.

Thanks for the welcome. ~Ilsa
