Two Good Reasons Why An Indictment of David Horowitz Would be Great For America
As I have noted, David Horowitz admitted to have knowingly violated the Espionage Act and is still subject to criminal prosecution for his treason (there's no statute of limitations for violation of the Espionage act). It would be an open-and-shut case because Horowitz admitted to the treacherous act in writing. Also, Horowitz would no longer be able to hide behind the fact that sensitive intelligence would be made public as a result of a trial since it deals with moot cold war issues (Horowitz published the classified documents only after consulting with an attorney who told him that if the government prosecuted him, it would risk disclosure of even more classified intelligence). So it's only a matter of getting a U.S. Attorney to proceed with an indictment.
Why would this be a great thing for America? There are many reasons. Here are two good reasons:
1. It would be one more illustration of George W. Bush's poor judgment. Bush invited Traitor Horowitz to his Crawford, Texas ranch for political advice in 2002. (Click here for a hilarious post about DH's gushing report of his exchange with Bush). The idea that Bush asked for advice from someone who was later indicted for treason would not just be a scream: it would reinforce the truth that Bush has extremely poor judgment.
2. It would be a repudiation of the 2004 election. Bush's surrogates like Horowitz called John Kerry a traitor (Horowitz is still doing it). In fact, the head of the Swift Boat Liars, John O'Neill is on the board of Horowitz's Center for the Study of Popular Culture. An indictment of Horowitz would be a major embarrassment for O'Neill.
