This is something I wish my dad lived to see. Today, our friend, former Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Convertino, was acquitted on all charges–Trumped Up Charges!–contained in a politically-motivated, baseless, and terrorist-pandering federal indictment against him. Readers of this site know I’ve been writing about Rick and his fight against Islamic terrorism (and the Justice Department that loves Islamofascism) since 2003, when I first wrote of his situation in a New York Post column. And I’ve been writing about the Federal attempt to mob-lynch him, ever since.
In yet another deserved defeat for the “Justice” Department and FOUR(!) years of wasted time and resources and hurt lives (Convertino’s, his family’s, his co-defendant Ray Smith’s, etc.), the jury took little time after beginning jury deliberations today to acquit Convertino. It’s an incredible loss for the government, a huge win for America.
Sadly, he was put on trial, instead of the Al-Qaeda terrorists he convicted and which the justice department overturned. If only the government pursued terrorists with the zeal and resources they spent the last four years using against Convertino for actually pursuing and convicting Al-Qaeda terrorists.
And they tried to keep the truth out. Justice Department lawyers asked jurors if they read this site and nixed those who did. But they couldn’t block the sunshine. Truth gets out eventually, and sometimes good does win over evil, as it definitely, finally, did today.
Convertino won, if only after tremendous expense to and persecution of himself, his wife, and his five children. This is a huge victory for the forces of good and right, and a huge loss for the forces of political correctness that dominate every level of “counterterrorism pursuit” at the Justice Department.
Rick Convertino must now rebuild his life and begin the process of getting his reputation back. For those of us who know and love him and knew the truth about this valiant counterterrorist, he never lost it in the first place.
There is so much more on this, and I was in the process of writing a column on the trial, when the good news came in. I have some blockbuster info on it that should shock you. Sometimes–too many times–officials of our federal government think they’re mobsters and act like it.
And not just on Halloween.
Well, the witches and ghouls lost one today. And Rick Convertino won yet another fight in his righteous cause.
My father was disgusted at the four-year ordeal they put Convertino through and how they took the terrorists’ side. And I know he’s smiling from up above at the events of today.
Still, we Americans lost a great federal servant in this honest, decent, brilliant prosecutor, because the evil that dominates the Justice Department drove him out.
Now, he’s representing the defense. Way to go, Ashcronzales.
Next question: Just how many millions of our tax money did the Justice Dept. waste in going after this good man?
Another question: Since the Islamo-pandering Detroit media crucified Convertino for four years on their front pages, will they run full-length stories about his acquittal as prominently?
Don’t bet on it.
Congratulations, Rick! You beat the bastards down.
