Obama’s Deadliest Cover-Up: They All Have Blood on Their Hands
Print List Price: $19.95
“It is better that ten guilty persons escape than one innocent suffer.” William Blackstone, 1765.
Mr. Blankenship offers substantial evidence that not only was he wrongfully convicted, but that the Mine Safety and Health Administration dropped the ball in the investigation of the Upper Big Branch explosion.
This was a political prosecution from the very beginning and culminated in a wrongful conviction. The U.S. Attorney has been found guilty of concealing exculpatory evidence. Unfortunately there are no consequences for this type of prosecutorial misconduct since they enjoy absolute immunity (which should be changed).
Anyone concerned with continued encroachment of our civil liberties should be aware of what happened here. High-ranking politicians beat the drum to prosecute this guy and the angry mob, including what pretends to be an unbiased press, demanded his prosecution.
I read the book and I believe what he says. The ruling by a federal magistrate a few months ago also supports what he says.
Mr. Blankenship says he is going to write a separate book about the criminal prosecution he underwent. I will be reading that with great interest as well.
