Shutting down the investigation

with one comment

Or, if not shutting it down, stonewall and run out the clock till after the election. Josh Marshall:

Newsweek: McCain camp and its Alaska allies move to shut down trooper-gate probe.

Definitely take a look at the Newsweek article. Also take note of the following, that we’re going to be looking into next week. Within days of Palin’s selection, at least seven of her aides and associates, who had previously agreed to cooperate with the trooper-gate investigation, informed investigator Steve Branchflower that they were now no longer willing to be deposed. Note too that this was immediately after the McCain team deployed what George Stephanopoulos reported was a “rapid response team of about ten operatives that includes lawyers” to the state.

So the question is: what contact did representatives of the McCain campaign have with these aides that had agreed to testify but within days of her selection took back their pledge and are now refusing to cooperate?

  1. I’ve spent the first 30 yrs in Chicago,Ill, next 6yrs in San Jose, Ca., now live in Anchorage for last 30 yrs. I’ll be 66 next year and retired.

    I know judge John Sudduck, he is a very honorable guy and if forced to make a descision on the Palin family, I trust it wiill be fair to both Sarha and her family.

    Walt Monegan was previous an APD cop promoted above his competence level as AST commissioner . That was an AST mistake. Monegan is not suitable to be AST commissioner. Monegan should of fired Trooper Wooten months ago. If Monegan is reluctant to dismiss bad cops, then Monegan needs to go and help to carry Wooten’s bags to a another job.
