DeLay's Lawyer Tries to Subpoena Earle

Hubris:

Lawyers for indicted Rep. Tom DeLay on Tuesday subpoenaed the prosecuting Texas district attorney in an effort to show he acted improperly with grand jurors.

The subpoena for Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle, filed in Austin, asked that the prosecutor and two of his assistants appear in court to explain their conduct.


It's high stakes. Can't imagine a judge looking at this without a skeptical eye. I've never heard of this. Anyone?

  • Smells like a desperate deep-fried Delay to me....

    If this is the best defense Delay's got, he and Blunt are in alot hotter water than anyone figured.

    The Grand Juries followed the law, and there's about 400 pages or "pounds of documents" which shows why Delay broke it.(the law)

  • looks like hot tub tommy's going all in. He thinks he can intimidate prosecuters, just like he does house members. I think he's in for a little surprise.

  • If this was done to Fitzgerald, he (Delay&crony) would likely be hit with obstruction of justice.......

    Fitzgerald's over 100x worse, there's a reason to fear him. He puts everyone in jail who breaks the law.(100% apolitical, unlike Earle)
