Another big, ballyhooed federal prosecution, that is. The jury just found Roger Clemens not guilty on all six counts.
Man, how many blown federal prosecutions is that? John Edwards (who may be a complete cad, but …). The Africa sting. Going back a few years, the Irv “Gotti” Lorenzo (hip hop producer) money laundering trial. All big deals, all cases in which some fed prosecutor hoped to stage a big show and make a big impression. And every one of them based entirely or mostly on testimony (or testilying) from informants (or stings cooked up by informants) with little real evidence.
You suppose the feds are gonna learn?
Nawwwww, that would be too much to ask.
