50. "Obama can't do much of anything to get Wilson." In response to In response to 48 Wed Dec-10-14 08:04 PM by SoWhat
I'm unaware of any federal statute that gives the president the authority to interfere in a criminal prosecution under state law. He has directed DOJ to investigate the matter for violations of the Civil Rights Act - that's federal law. We'll see where that goes. But that's all the fedz can do to prosecute Wilson as far as I know. If you'd heard different I was curious.
