We Have a Monumental Fight on our Hands

Now, I got a note from a friend of mine, former prosecutor in the Department of Justice. Over the weekend we were e-mailing back and forth, a bunch of us, just appalled at all of the so-called conservative intelligentsia. We’re trying to find silver linings here, and some of the most peculiar things were being said in support of Justice Roberts’ ruling. We were beside ourselves. We were asking ourselves, “What is so hard to see about reality here when it hits you between the eyes?”

And my buddy sends me this note. He said, “I wish I had more time to write this. I’m totally under it and I have to move on, but I’m reminded of when I was a prosecutor and we used to have the judge order the defendants that they were barred on pain of being held in contempt not to disclose sensitive discovery material to people not entitled to have it, such as the press or hit men, (laughing) people that might use it to kill witnesses. We prosecuted the mob, number of other things. I always used to laugh, Rush, I used to laugh when I had to seek those orders. It was office policy to do so at DOJ. The judge telling some guy that’s murdered 15 people, ‘Don’t divulge what’s gone on here in court?’ Come on. People who commit mass murder, Mafia style extortion, big-time drug trafficking, those crimes knowing they were risking life prison sentences, you really think they’re gonna be intimidated by and thus conform to a threat that they might be held in contempt by a judge? To think so is to be an egghead so into judicial majesty that you’ve lost touch with the real world.”
