McKinney To Make Deal?

Via a trackback from Ms. Underestimated, it looks like there is a possibility that Cell Phone Cynthia may make a deal for her incident where she hit a police officer:

Federal prosecutors investigating the confrontation between Rep. Cynthia McKinney of Georgia and a Capitol police officer have been talking privately with McKinney’s office in hopes of resolving the case without the spectacle of an indictment and trial, officials familiar with the talks say.

Prosecutors for several weeks have been carrying on confidential discussions with the DeKalb County Democrat in what they characterized as an effort to reach a plea agreement, even as they were presenting evidence in the March 29 incident to a grand jury, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The grand jury has not yet decided whether McKinney should be charged, an official familiar with the proceedings said, and no decision is expected this week. The prosecutors have subpoenaed at least six witnesses to appear before the jury over the last two months.

McKinney’s office rejected claims that there have been discussions of a plea agreement, saying the congresswoman has not been charged with anything and may never be, so there’s no plea to negotiate.

“At this time, I have no comment as I am unaware of any ‘legal case’ regarding Ms. McKinney and [the] March 29 incident,” William Moffitt, one of McKinney’s lawyers, said in an e-mailed statement.

As said many times, if this had been any average American, heck, were it Donald Trump or Ophra, they would have been immediately arrested and charged. But McKinney is recieving preferential treatment. The cop said she hit him. Witnesses supposedly testified to the same. She herself said it happened. So what is the problem?

Is this another case of Congress Critters being above the law? Will Hastert jump in to help her?

I’d write my Congressman, but Brad Miller is Dem, and, more importantly, really, really bad at responding, as is Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC). Maybe Sen. Dole (r-NC) will listen.
