No one has a sharper eye on what prosecution is supposed to be and how it should be carried out than Andrew C. McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor who served as Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. In a district that contains Manhattan, a leading financial and commerce center for the United States and the world, McCarthy is best known for his successful prosecution of Sheikh Abdel Raman, the mastermind of the first World Trade Center terror attack in 1993. McCarthy was awarded the highest award offered by the Justice Department for his role in that prosecution.
Now serving as a Fellow with the National Review Institute, Andy McCarthy is a major contributor to the publication by the same name which was originated by William F. Buckley, Jr. And my reason for bringing this fine legal mind up is because of the article he penned in Saturday's National Review. In the article he details all of the practices and actions being pursued by Robert Mueller which violate clear rules for the conduct of Special Prosecutor as promulgated by the Department of Justice, the body which made the appointment. As we look more and more where this thing is going, we can't divorce the fact that Rod Rosenstein, a man with close ties to both James Comey and Mueller himself, should have never been given the responsibility to make such an appointment. It's hard to fathom why the new Attorney General at the time, Jeff Sessions, would let that happen.
Rather than try and detail the excellent article myself, the link below takes us to the story. Just copy and paste into your browser to read it. Now I'll warn you, it's quite lengthy, but I believe all Americans of every point of view and persuasion should take the time to read the rest of the story. The media has selectively "plucked" the apple tree in their coverage and the tree needs to be reviewed from the roots up. I suspect that a lot of the fruit is rotten.
