Yesterday I began to write about Carney & Brennan’s (C&B) renewed motion for discovery. I stopped at the point where I noted Stevie Flemmi’s assertion that David Margolis the associate deputy attorney general of the US who has been with the Department of Justice (DOJ) for 48 years has ties to the Mafia. I scoffed at Flemmi’s allegation as another one of his many lies and rejected it out of hand.
I was caught up short when some who comment on this blog and who keep me in check noted I was jumping the gun defending Margolis. (See comment section) They aver just because Flemmi’s tells the truth as often as a broken schoolhouse clock even that is truthful once every twelve hours. They suggest that just because he has been with the DOJ 48 years that did not make Flemmi’s assertion he was a Mafia plant wrong.
