he should draw up an indictment and call for the Sergeant-at-Arms to effect an arrest. This is Congress' chance to clip the wings of the Executive Branch once and for all. The 5th Amendment must be the line in the sand.
He is ammo for RP, what if they had done this to Brandon Mayfield?
Brandon Mayfield, the guy whose fingerprints the FBI said were a "100% verified" match to the Madrid train bombings. Then the FBI turned out to be lying, and knew it, and didn't care. The only reason Mayfield is not rotting incommunicado in a military prison is because the Spanish government went public screaming that they had the wrong guy.
"On May 6, 2004, Brandon Mayfield, an Oregon attorney, was arrested by the FBI in connection with the Madrid train bombings. A bag containing detonating devices, found by Spanish authorities, had fingerprints that were initially identified by the FBI as "100% verified" as Mayfield's. But in a subsequent lawsuit Judge Ann Aiken found that this information was largely "fabricated and concocted by the FBI and DOJ". Mayfield was cleared only when the Spanish authorities protested that the fingerprints were not a match... Further, the Spanish authorities informed the FBI they had other suspects in the case, Moroccan immigrants not linked to anyone in the USA. The FBI completely disregarded all of the information from the Spanish authorities."
A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
