Michael Brown Goes Free: Nov. 1997
Editor's Note: A basic rule of government is that nothing,
even justice, remains inviolate from the political process. In
1997, the Justice Department chose to drop felony charges against
Michael Brown, saving the reputation of a connected White House
appointee. Who is AG Holder protecting? Incidentally, earlier this
month Mr. Brown pleaded guilty to bribery charges stemming from his
later service on the Washington, D.C. city council.
