      Is that a quote from the prosecuter?  Or a quote from the prosecuter quoting the letter?  This is vague, and I'm sure the letter was more than one sentence fragment.

      Don't get me wrong, the guy sounds like a prick, and I have not interest in defending him.  So I think I'm going to stop now.

      Congress has the choice between what is politically expedient and what is right. Finally, for one goddamn time, let them choose the latter! IMPEACH!

        you want to know the facts and are inclined to be a skeptic until you've assembled enough of them.  not a defense of him, just a hesitation to convict without enough evidence.

        the harvard crimson article linked to in the body of the diary has a longer discussion of just what he allocuted to.

        imply the letter said more than it did during a plea taking or a sentence for a plea taking.  He has a duty of truth and he could and probably would be censured for doing so and the Court would never rely on anything he said again.  Your arguments and questioning of the facts that were established is bizarre, to say the least.
