Julie Kelly: It's Time for a Law to Make Prosecutors Try Politically-Sensitive Cases Outside of Washington DC and Its Left-Liberal Environs

One major factor in the decision to not charge the plainly guilty Andrew McCabe was the fact that the jury pool was to be taken from a voting pool of 90% Hillary Clinton voters, and 4% Trump voters.

We can no longer permit such two-tiered justice based simply on zip codes.


"When the District of Columbia is the venue for any prosecution with political overtones, Justice Department charging decisions must factor in the jury pool, which is solidly anti-Trump," observed former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy.


The jury selection for the 2019 trial of Greg Craig illustrated the near-impossibility of seating an impartial panel in Washington.

Caught up in the Robert Mueller investigation, Craig, a former counsel for two Democratic presidents and a longtime power broker, was charged with making false statements to the special counsel about his work in Ukraine. The prospective jury pool ensnared a Whos-Who of D.C. glitterati including Clinton White House officials, reporters, and government contractors.

Josh Gerstein, a reporter covering the trial for Politico, wrote that the process "turned up a variety of political allegiances, personal connections and employment that could be problematic." But jurors with obvious conflicts, nonetheless, were added to the jury.

After Craig was acquitted last September, one juror expressed outrage that Mueller wasted time on Craig’s case "while the republic itself is under assault." That is #TheResistance code for Orange Man Bad.

And meanwhile, of course, a DC judge permitted a partisan Democrat who ran for Congress as a Democrat, and who tweeted daily about her hatred of Trump and his "racist" supporters and aides, to serve as foreman of a jury trying Roger Stone.

Unacceptable. Unamerican.

We also have to talk about civil service reform, and by reform, I mean giving the president plenary power to fire 80% of all civil servants:
