COMMISSION ON JUDICIAL CONDUCT OPENS INVESTIGATION AGAINST ART MCDONALD

Josefina Fisher learned today that the Texas Commission on Judicial Conduct accepted her complaint against Art McDonald for refusing to sign the order of dismissal of the bogus criminal charges.

TO BE FAIR - upon investigation the Commission could find the claims are without merit.  But for now they have taken the position that if true they could form a basis for a sanction.

Nothing has changed with the conviction of Armando Villalobos and former Judge Abel Limas.  People are simply in disbelief McDonald took it to this point.  Josefina Fisher is waiting for the assignment of a new judge to her case.

SAENZ AND THE FBI

I have to put everything into an analytical model and then plug in the known facts to form a theory.  The problem is none of the rules seem to apply right now so no model of analysis can be formed.  The DOJ did not have Justino Ramos testify that he bribed DA Saenz with a $1,000 because they did not believe him.  What has so many people confused is, why has Saenz not yet been indicted on the charge?  Everyone I speak with asks the same question.  The only answer I can come up with is, in exchange for Saenz doing the Brownsville Office of the FBI's dirty work they are giving him a pass.  If this is in fact what is happening, we are in a very dangerous citation.  If I were the Hernandez family I would be seeking an appointment with the supervisor over the Regional Office in San Antonio demanding an investigation.  Something is profoundly wrong.  If the Regional Office does not take their complaint seriously I would go to the next level.

It simply makes no sense that the DOJ called Justino Ramos to testify against Saenz and then they refuse to indict Saenz.  A very dangerous deal was cut.  Only the Hernandez family can force the investigation to find out what that deal is.  There is so much more to this, but I am not at liberty to disclose same.  But it is time the Hernandez family with an attorney in tow get to San Antonio and demand a meeting with the Chief Agent.

I tend to agree with you that Ramos's testimony is being used as leverage.The FBI will continue to use Saenz and then spit him out and indict him.If I had to guess their involvement with Saenz came about around election time because the Feds knew they would get no where with Masso .(remember ,they had no access to the DA's office under Villalobos;nor did they trust him...)I believe that there is a shit storm a brewing and it will hit Cameron County around election time.I also believe you are making a difference...

I have looked at the Raul Salazar trial transcript and compared it to the indictment of Ernie Hernandez - on counts 1-6 the claims in the indictment conflict with the testimony given by the witnesses. Count 7 we all know is bogus - it was Carlos Cascos gunning for David Garcia - plus we know and the BV has posted the email proving it htat David Garcia had the draft agenda just before he took the stand and knew Ernie Hernandez had nothing to do with the reorganization of HR.

This leaves count 8 - it is not a crime for a commission to file a complaint that Saenz is engaged in selective enforcement on the 8 Liners.

My view is the Hernandez family needs to leave Brownsville asap and get an appointment with the District Chief of the FBI in San Antonio and file formal criminal charges against Saenz while demanding a formal criminal investigation of the Brownsville Chief - if the San Antonio Chief refuses to take them seriously they need to go over his/her head. This needs to go to Washington if need be.

The DOJ by putting on Ramos to testify that Saenz took a $1,000 bribe effectively said publicly that they believe him - so why has Saenz not been indicted - answer -a deal was struck - Saenz does what ever it takes to do their dirty work and they will turn a blind eye.

Under what is known as a Bivens Action the Hernandez family can actually sued in federal court now unknown FBI agents and bring the entire thing down before it goes any further

Saenz is working with Homeland and the DEA .This buys him time from the FBI throwing him under the bus..The Feds don't always play well together...In the end they will not turn a blind eye to Saenz taking bribes from drug dealers who they call to testify. Remember the 8 liners were funded by drug money...You can bet your ass Washington is watching...(you can see them watching your blog) The Republican Party is all over this ;without Texas you will not see a Republican President ever again...sure that is music to your ears...lol

It could be that if the only evidence they have now is his testimony, it's not enough to make a case. Look how long they investigated all the other claims before indictments came down.

Why can only the Hernandez's force the investigation? What about other individuals who have been indicted? What about the ex-mayor (Ahumada), can he force the investigation?

BobbyWC said...

On the Ahumada - nice catch - actually anyone who feels like they are a victim of what is happening between Saenz and he local office of the FBI can seek redress.

Thanks for helping to make that clear

On the 8 liners being funded by drug money I call BS. If they had been the Feds would have most certainly gotten involved. The DA's office was going to be at the will of the Feds no matter what. Saenz was Villalobos special prosecutor, De Ford was his ADA, Masso had lots of luggage.

The Feds did get involved.It was a joint operation.I believe it was let by Homeland. They all have luggage...

BobbyWC said...

According to the ICE rep the investigation started 18 months before Saenz even took office - which tells you how long it takes the feds to do anything

The most salient point anyone has made. This is why we need to look at the good, the bad and the ugly - anyone who says they are clean is a liar and cannot be trusted

In all fairness, They were waiting for Villalobos to leave office.That's a fact.

You are right ,Bobby. Nobody involved is clean;and no one can be trusted...

If the investigation took place 18 months before Saenz took office why didn't they act on it. As I understand, it is a state misdemeanor so why would the Feds care? They would have acted if dopers were truly involved. I think they acted because of the all the talk about Villalobos and his buddies making a fortune.

BobbyWC said...

It sounds like one of many possible explanations - I think Villalobos was clearly the factor
