Failed investigations, friends, or a judicial system that’s broken??? Why didn’t the D.A. let Bill Cosby off the hook, or let him go to rehab like so many others??? Do sexual abusers reall rule in Hollywood??? Actions of the Attorney General speaks for itself. While Former FBI agent Richard Taus sits in the Clinton Federal Prison for over 30 years, those whose crimes are far greater get a get out jail free pass.

“Multiple sources said both federal and local officials deserve blame for not taking public corruption cases seriously enough and for failing to assign enough of their best investigators and prosecutors to work on the task force,” according to the Times article. Friction between the DA and federal investigators stemmed in part from separate inquiries into Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido, multiple sources told the Times. Federal agents were also suspicious about inquiries by DA supervisors into other FBI investigations and were wary of DA Tony Rackauckas’ perceived political ties to potential targets.
