A Quote That Is Breathlessly Ironic

June 5, 2022 --

The June 1 article in The New York Times concluded with this quote attributed to lawyers for Michael Sussman, issued after the jury's nullification verdict:

" 'Politics is no substitute for evidence, and politics has no place in our system of justice.'"

LPR offers the observation that "politics" had everything to do with Sussmann's acquittal by this federal jury in a venue where more than 90% of the voters are Democrats (and Trump-haters).
