Bush Appointee Runs Interference for Neo-Nazi Assassins In Obama Plot
US Attorney for Colorado Troy Eid earlier this year decided that the white supremacists arrested this summer packing scoped rifles, body armor and ammo while traveling out to Denver to shoot Barack Obama were really just fun-loving kids with a drug problem.
Sure. And, hey, gosh, there are all the First Amendment issues to respect here as well. What American doesn’t have the right to rave on and on about blowing away a Democratic presidential candidates and arming himself to do the deed, without harassment from an oppressive Nanny State?
Apparently, this kind of legal logic only works if you are a grinning fuckwit appointee of the Bush Justice Department who thinks Democrats are things you can get hunting licenses to kill. Shockingly, for Eid, no doubt, there are a bunch of legal experts whining away that those neo-Nazis should be put on trial for conspiracy to murder a presidential candidate in interviews conducted by the people from Raw Story.
Raw Story concluded:
Interviews with numerous legal experts suggest that Colorado US Attorney Troy Eid misled reporters and diverged from state law when declining to prosecute any of the three men arrested in Denver for threatening to assassinate Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.
RedManLaw reports: “Although he didn’t charge the Obama plotters, whom he dismissed as meth heads, Eid did charge a guy who sent McCain white powder/fake anthrax in the mail. Eid is a lawyer from the Denver office of Greenburg Traurig, which was Jack Abramnoff’s firm before he got taken down. He denies having worked with Jack while they both worked at the firm, although Eid has an interest in Indian law. (I suppose one could troll the thousands of pages of Jack’s emails archived at the Senate Indian Affairs Committee webasite to see, but they are not searchable .pdfs).”
So what is fuckface Troy’s story? Is he a dolt? A neo-Nazi sympathizer who digs these guys’ steely resolve to kill a black presidential candidate? A tool doing the bidding of bigger gangsters in Justice Department’s Washington, DC HQ? An honest-to-God white supremacist who wants to make sure that his people know they won’t be harassed for doing God’s will?
