The mental giants in Washington have already wasted countless hundreds of thousands of dollars on a prosecution they knew had only a 50-50 chance of succeeding. Plus, to make matters worse, they knew they stood an excellent chance of any conviction being overturned in the Supreme Court! These politically motivated witch hunts are an insult to all of us, and the case brought to bear against Bruno could be levied against any politician in America proportionate to his political experience and his cover-up expertise. The more time in office, the more power a politician accumulates, the more good AND bad things he is able to 'accomplish'.They are all guilty to varying degrees of any number of infractions or laws or moral covenants.

The guy is 81 years old. He'll be living in nature's prison soon enough.
Take all the prosecution money saved by letting nature be his judge and jury and give to an organization that might actually have a good use for the saving a kid from cancer or an abusive parent.

Enough is enough already. The Feds messed up and now want a second shot at Mr. Bruno. Let it rest in peace for God's sake and go after real criminals. Eating crow isn't too bad once you get use to the taste.
