Image Right: Susan McDogal was jailed for not answering questions posed by the grand jury during the Clinton/Whitewater investigation.
Notice the shoulder emblem on the law enforcement officer behind her. This is serious!
Notice the handcuffs?
Yep, you got it right, witness Susan McDogal was JAILED!
Why didn’t President Clinton intervene, and get her out of jail? After all, they were business partners.
Well, being an attorney, President Clinton knew better than to try to mess with a federal grand jury investigating- White Water.
What about members of the press being jailed? Jailed for not answering questions posed by a grand jury include Susan Miller and Josh Wolf. Hmmmmm…..
Wait.. wait a minute .. doesn’t the 5th amendment apply? Doesn’t the right to remain silent apply?
As a witness it does not! And there are “witness protection options”, they choose not to take.
What’s the point? The grand jury has special powers to “Pierce through the silence of witnesses that witness corruption.”
How is this possible? I, the author of The Hidden 4th Branch agree with the legal system for their methods to seek-out the truth and institute justice; even if a witness won’t answer questions. (This power afforded the grand jury is a very good thing. This power is also sometimes invoked by a judge during a regular trial.)
Why did the “Watergate Boys” answer questions before a grand jury and Susan McDogal refused? Real simple, Susan McDogal, being a female was not afraid to “Drop the Soap.”
Can you now imagine how male employees of a corrupt government official become glad to answer questions before a grand jury? This considering their options. The “Watergate Boys” sure spoke!
