Politically motivated indictment[edit]

Mr. Walsh brought an indictment of Weinberger out of grand jury four days prior to the 1992 general election, which conflicted with longstanding Justice Department policy of not bringing an indictment out of a grand jury after August of an election. It has been widely viewed that Walsh’s action was politically motivated and was the determining factor in Bill Clinton’s election. The one count indictment was thrown out by U.S. Federal Judge Thomas Hogan on December 11, 1992 on the grounds that it had violated the five year statute of limitation. http://www.nytimes.com/1992/12/12/us/charge-in-weinberger-case-that-caused-furor-before-election-is-thrown-out.html?pagewanted=1 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alamo.texas (talkcontribs) 23:08, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

Mark Levin and the Landmark Legal Foundation were involved in defending former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese against the scurrilous charges brought by Lawrence Walsh against Meese, Caspar Weinberger and others. He spoke about it at length during the second hour of his radio show today. (Archived audio for 2014-03-20 available at http://www.marklevinshow.com/. Start at time index 0:37:19.) In the end, not only were most of the charges dismissed, he explained, but there wasn't even the commission of a crime. Mr. Walsh was clearly operating outside the U.S. Constitution and the bounds of professional ethics. — QuicksilverT @ 03:50, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
