WTW: More Subpoenas In McKinney Case

I reckon them prosecuter critters are just being careful, getting all the facts, laying it out for the Grand Jury (unlike in the Tom Delay and Duke Lacrosse cases). From Yahoo News:

More House aides have been served with subpoenas to testify in the grand jury investigation of an incident last month where Rep. Cynthia McKinney hit a Capitol Police officer.

Staffers from four congressional offices, in statements read on the House floor Tuesday, announced they would comply with subpoenas issued by the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

The offices of Reps. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., and Barbara Lee, D-Calif., confirmed that the subpoenas were related to the March 29 incident where McKinney, a Georgia Democrat, entered a Capitol building unrecognized by the officer on duty and then hit him when he tried to stop her.

Those receiving the subpoenas are thought to have been witnesses to the altercation. (well, Duh!)

The other two subpoenas went to aides to Reps. Lois Capps, D-Calif., and Donald Payne, D-N.J. Capps’ office would not comment on the purpose of the subpoena and there was no immediate response from Payne’s office.

So, unlike what the Left-O-Sphere has been claiming, in what is surely a knee-jerk response, this case is not over.

The AP repeats a misconception in their Liberal World

But she got little support from House colleagues, and on April 6 went to the House floor to apologize for what she said was a “misunderstanding.”

No, she didn’t.

REP. MCKINNEY: Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I come before this body to personally express again my sincere regret about the encounter with the capitol hill police. I appreciate my colleagues who are standing with me, who love this institution, and who love this country. There should not have been any physical contact in this incident. I have always supported law enforcement and will be voting for H.R. 756, expressing my gratitude and appreciation to the professionalism and dedication of the men and women of the U.S. Capitol police. I am sorry that this misunderstanding happened at all and I regret its escalation and I apologize. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. 

She is sorry for the misunderstanding and apologizes for it, without really stating what she is apologizing for. “Physical contact?” On whose part? But, the libs will stick with this nuttarama through hell and high water, like they support cop killer Mumia. I’m surprised there aren’t more on the left supporting Zacharias Moussaoui.
