Ah, similar to the infamous "18 minute gap" in the Nixon administration, no doubt.

Let me see if I understand this.

The lynch mob hoped to find a "smoking gun" in one of the huge numbers of files already turned over. But, they did not find what they wanted. It is hard to prove a negative, so John Swallow cannot "prove" his innocence, but investigators demand proof he does not have.

At least the investigators from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Utah Bar Association have already determined they got ALL the records, and decided there was NO, zero, zip, nada wrongdoing by John Swallow.

But, if we get enough people digging long enough, they might find something?

Even if they never get any charges, let alone a conviction, such persecutions can run up massive legal bills for the person investigated. This is certainly a time when "loser pays" seems a very good ideal to at least limit the financial penalty on someone falsely accused.

I can hardly wait for the news media and "better government" groups to take up the scent of some Democrat elected official doing anything wrong and hounding them to the ends of earth.
