It's hoped that some political reforms will come out of this trial, and that many more politicians and bribing lobbyists take the fall. Do the government's prosecutors really have a case? We don't know, but it hasn't appeared so from the inception of this legal saga to the present. And what of former Pamela Martin & Associates escort Paula Neble? Some have alleged that she was the gal who had contact with Senator David Vitter. Where is Neble? Why is she hiding? What was the FBI's role in the investigations? Were wiretaps involved, and did they get a warrant? The FBI has kept a very low-profile in this case.
Poker players never tell (often the same thing in this story), and neither should defendants. District of Columbia Federal Judge James Robertson is presiding over the case. Judge Robertson is thought by some to the the whistle-blower on the illegal NSA warrantless wiretapping program that was secretly initiated by the White House in 2002. Is there any current scandal that this scandal is not attached to in some way? We'll all be finding-out--or not--soon. Perhaps we'll discover what happened from the FOIA. April it is.
