Washington Post: Analysis | Discussing the gaps in ‘2000 Mules’ w/Dinesh D’Souza
MY SAY: Philip Bump is being intellectually dishonest. He's talking about form when he should be talking about function. The evidence is clear, and as a former grand jurist I can tell you that ANY grand jury would indict on this evidence. The threshold for indictment is the 51 percent rule. If it is more likely than not that a crime was committed and that John or Jane Doe committed the crime then you have a true bill of indictment. That's how our justice system works. Dinesh D'Sousa is not a prosecuting attorney making a legal case against alleged criminals in a court of law, he is presenting EVIDENCE of a crime and showing you WHO did it. Those two facts are not disputable, so Bump goes around the elephant in the room to discuss the color of the drapes. Another WaPo FAIL.
Downvoted for misrepresenting the legal process. The "51% rule" is not the threshold for indictment, the threshold is probable cause, a much lower level. Second, D'Sousa isn't presenting evidence, he's presenting fiction which has been debunked.
