    Every day this gets murkier and more convoluted.
    No AG of ANY state should ever position himself to be even remotely regarded as sneaky, underhanded and criminal.
    They should err on the side of caution and NEVER enter into any endeavor that would cast a shadow on the sanctity and standing of their office.
    Swallow is all over the wrong side of this map...

    "It’s that simple," Snow said. "It’s not anything John orchestrated or did or had his hands in."

    "No one saw this coming," Swallow’s attorney, Rod Snow, wrote in an email. "It is when documents start disappearing after an investigation commences, and you are aware of it, that should raise suspicions. That is not the case here."

    But a recording of a meeting with businessman Jeremy Johnson at an Orem doughnut shop indicates Swallow may have seen a probe coming as far back as at least April 2012.

    During that meeting at Orem’s Krispy Kreme, Johnson, who secretly recorded the conversation, told Swallow the feds were pushing him to provide information about a certain unnamed public official.

    "It’s gotta be me," Swallow told Johnson.

    Later during the conversation, Swallow said that he didn’t retain his emails.

    "I don’t keep my emails," Swallow said.

    "OK, good. I wish I didn’t keep mine, either, believe me," Johnson replied.

    "I’ve deleted them all after a year," Swallow replied.

    His lack of honesty should be disturbing.

    Forget about the emails for now....What about that video recording of him in a donut shop, worrying that there was a paper trail of his free use of Jeremy Johnson's houseboat? Or going to that spa on Session's tab? What about that stuff? That ALONE is shady...and only the beginning..
