  1. Mel,

    The plot continues to thicken in the Siegelman matter. However, I don’t believe Gov. Siegelman will see any justice come from either DOJ IG or DOJ OPR. To specifically answer your href=”http://grievanceproject.wordpress.com/2008/07/09/welcome-to-my-friends-and-colleagues-at-usdoj/#comment-166″>questions

    Does it sound to you like the direction of these DoJ investigations will go against Siegelman if this is the path they are on? That the investigations are illegitimate? Wheel-spinning in an effort to stall the corruption cases in to oblivian?

    Yes*. Yes. href=”http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2008/07/19/law/index.html”>Yes.

    *But only in the sense that the decisions will likely find no wrongdoing by DoJ prosecutors.

    Hey, EM. I just did a post on Siegelman discussing being contacted by the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General and Office of Professional Responsibility. The DoJ asked Seigelman attorneys for evidence. Siegelman says this is absurd because the OIG and OPR are the ones with the phenomenal cosmic power to be gathering evidence.
