Cocaine Mitch now wants the Department of Justice to uphold a corruptly achieved misdemeanor convict

This afternoon, Don Blankenship released the following statement: “My attorneys called me today to inform me that they received a call from the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky. The purpose of the call was to inform us that the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of West Virginia would no longer be handling my case and—instead—they would be handling the matter in Kentucky moving forward.” “This means that Cocaine Mitch McConnell’s appointees within the Department of Justice (DOJ) will now be deciding the DOJ’s position on whether my case should be invalidated. Cocaine Mitch will, of course, claim that he is not involved—just like he originally said he was not involved in the West Virginia Republican primary. Yet, today Mitch makes jokes about his involvement in the campaign and compares himself to Pablo Escobar”. “On April 5, 2010 the Upper Big Branch coal mine exploded killing 29 miners because the government cut the air in half. Since then, the government has done everything it can to cover-up the truth including falsely imprisoning me. They have even continued their charade after their own witnesses testified under oath at my trial that the government forced the miners to cut the air in half—a task which was completed just eight hours before the explosion. The government has even admitted to destroying and altering documents and that they have in their possession additional documents that they continue to fight to keep hidden. In addition, they have in their possession a report from the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility which likely makes abundantly clear that my prosecution was a corrupt prosecution—another report they refuse to release”. “We live in a country where the Majority Leader of the Senate now decides who his future Senate colleagues will be, compares himself to Pablo Escobar, and places his political adversary’s case under the control of his own DOJ appointees. The American justice system is a criminal enterprise itself”. “The American people can clearly see that freedom of speech does not exist in America. It is not enough that McConnell and multiple Republican Senators and dozens of news media outlets sabotaged my campaign for the United States Senate with outright lies—McConnell now wants the DOJ to uphold a corruptly achieved misdemeanor conviction, as well. “He must have figured out that I will be on the ballot to become West Virginia’s U.S. Senator this fall”.
