Craig Shirley: High Court McDonnell Decision Victory Over 'Out-of-Control Judiciary'

 

By    |   Monday, 27 Jun 2016 10:17 PM

Presidential historian Craig Shirley hailed a Supreme Court decision Monday that tossed out Republican former Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell's corruption convictions, declaring it a victory over "an out-of-control judiciary."

In an interview with "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth, the Ronald Reagan biographer said the decision brought to mind the case of former Reagan administration Labor Secretary Ray Donovan.

After Donovan's acquittal in 1987 of New York state charges of fraud and grand larceny, Donovan asked: ''The question is, should this indictment have ever been brought? Which office do I go to to get my reputation back?" 

"We have an out-of-control Justice Department," Shirley said, saying that was proved with its "illegal prosecution of Sen. Ted Stevens," the late Alaska politician who was toppled by a corruption conviction, whose indictment was later dismissed because of prosecutorial misconduct. 

Shirley said the high court decision Monday again illustrated over-reach of prosecutor who went "falsely after Bob McDonald."
