Not a peep from the national mainstream media about the embarrassing withdrawal of US Attorney nominee Stephanie Villafuerte and the damning indictment of the Colorado Democrat machine.
As I said, the withdrawal still leaves many unanswered questions about Denver’s ICE bureau, the prosecution of ICE whistleblower Cory Voorhis, and the accountability of DHS — which Sen. Jeff Sessions raised last week with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Colorado blogger Ross Kaminsky delves into the case in a two-part series on the federal corruption and cover-up in the Voorhis cases.
Every major ICE participant in the prosecution of Cory Voorhis has heavy ethical baggage; at least one was found (through an administrative process) to have committed a felony, and it appears he was not the only one – but none has been charged. Let’s not forget that these felonies and rule violations were committed to cover-up a series of terrible, politically-motivated decisions which resulted in Voorhis being charged with a misdemeanor, and unanimously acquitted by a jury. It’s time for one of our most important federal agencies to come clean…and clean house. It’s time for our justice system to dispense justice, both for Cory Voorhis and for those who succumbed to the pressure of the Colorado Democratic machine to ruin a good man’s life with their corruption and cover-ups.
Voorhis has a legal defense fund and website here.
