Video: "Pardon Ramos and Compean"

Co-produced by Grassfire.org, which has collected more than 300,000 signatures on the related petition. One of Patterico’s guestbloggers is reviewing the trial transcript systematically to determine whether this really is the snow job the agents’ supporters claim or whether it’s more Tancredo shenanigans. I’ll let you know when he renders his verdict. In the meantime, I’m still hazy on why, precisely, the U.S. Attorney would want to frame them. It’s not earning him any friends in CBP; it’s putting his boss in even hotter water on immigration than he’s already in; and, if he’s found to have acted unethically, it’s putting his own career at risk. So why do it?

Reminds me of Dana Carvey’s old bit about “framing O.J.” Watch it below if you never seen it. It’s a treat.
