I was never a high-profile lawyer and I’d never claim to have been exceptionally gifted in that profession, but I did handle at least a hundred criminal cases and have a pretty good feel for what goes on down in our halls of justice, federal and state. And never, ever, did I see the prosecution team investigate a complainant the way these guys did DSK’s accuser, let alone leak the results to the New York Times – hell, I’d have been grateful if they let a Greenwich Time reporter in on their doubts.
So what’s happened here? Is this State Department interference? Something else? It sure as hell isn’t remorse or compassion, because those aren’t feelings known by our prosecutors. Something stinks.
