    Let's see...

    1. The FTC wanted Johnson's assets seized and sold BEFORE a TRIAL...

    2. The government does not want Johnson to be able to subpoena and obtain TESTIMONY OF WITNESSES!!!

    Are none of you who are acting like sheep not the least bit amazed???

    Indictment is not guilty...

    This guy is looking less guilty all the time...

    And by the way it looks like Swallow was being investigated and so the government does not want to tell Johnson what it knows about Swallow...

    Everyone is a problem for Johnson except for his actions. Swallow was not professional and should have not done consulting as the Chief Deputy in the AGs office and running for the AG office while dealing with Johnson. $$$$ on the side is not good for the AG's office.

    I am so tired of Johnson trying to distract the public by calling "Wolf" implying that John Swallow has done anything wrong.

    The irony is that Johnson who has abused his relationship of trust with those who invested in his business is now complaining that someone else has abused their power.

    Even IF the FTC was overly aggressive, what did Johnson do to attract their attention? This is a smokescreen to divert attention away from the culprit. It's so obvious. His inflated ego makes him think he is so important that a federal agency will go to the ends of the earth to bring him down, rather than honestly look at his actions that led to this point. The arrogance is off the chart.

    The FTC, AKA DOJ, should be concerted about so called witness investigations if there is any doubt to the credibility of the testimony the FTC is presenting from them as evidence.

    I think individuals do have a right to question the prosecutors witness before going to court since they can't question the creditability of the witness and their statements. If any witness is credible and testimony is real then prosecutors should not be upset at the accused is also questioning them, and so far many have been cast with doubt that false testimony has been presented by the FTC and DOJ prosecutors of the Obama dictatorship empire.

    This should also dispel any doubt about the credibility of John Swallow's involvement being conflict of interest since the FTC has yet to establish any connections. This case sounds like one of a witch hunt by federal agents than any wrong doing so the governor should step in and stop the criminal behavior of the federal agency's manufacturing fake evidence and to imply connections and wrong doing by witness and casual acquaintances you meet at a NASCAR race or movie theater.
