For a week, the Leftists in the media have been wallowing in the afterglow of their "Scott Walker, Criminal Scheme" headlines.
Now, the Democrat hacks in the national media and the local media are reporting quite matter-of-factly that Walker was not the target of the John Doe investigation.
Wait. A week ago, Walker was coordinating a "criminal scheme." Now, he's not at the center of the criminal scheme?
For example, from the Washington Post:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) was not a target of a criminal investigation into illegal campaign coordination that was halted earlier this year, according to an attorney for the special prosecutor overseeing the case.Similar reports can be found in other publications and on the websites of network news outlets.
Randall D. Crocker, who is representing special prosecutor Francis Schmitz, also said Thursday that court filings released last week merely outlined a theory of the case and did not constitute a finding that charges were warranted.
“Mr. Schmitz has made no conclusions as to whether there is sufficient evidence to charge anyone with a crime,” Crocker said in a statement. “It is wrong for any person to point to this sentence in a legal argument as a finding by the special prosecutor that Governor Walker has engaged in a criminal scheme. It is not such a finding.”
“At the time the investigation was halted, Governor Walker was not a target of the investigation,” Crocker added. “At no time has he been served with a subpoena.”
The statement did not address whether prosecutors were targeting top Walker consultants who, according to the newly revealed documents, allegedly steered the activities of the tax-exempt groups.
There are no retractions or apologies for their participation in the frenzy of last week - the willful dissemination of their distortions, their inaccuracies, their lies. There is no acknowledgment of the fact that they completely fabricated a story.
Bottom line: The Leftist media are Democrat propagandists. The Leftist media have no integrity.
