A grand jury indicted Governor Rick Perry Friday for his attempts to remove Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg from office after she was arrested for driving while intoxicated last year in a case that made national headlines.

In April 2013, Lehmberg was arrested after a witness called 911, describing her as driving erratically, swerving back and forth into the bike lane, and into oncoming traffic. Officers at the scene reportedly found an open bottle of vodka in her car, and a blood sample obtained later that evening purportedly showed a blood alcohol level of 0.239—almost three times the legal limit—even that many hours later.

Not only did her arrest attracted headlines, but her belligerent behavior after she was brought to the police station—all captured on video tape—drew attention, as well. Lehmberg is seen blaming the police for destroying her political career, yelling and insulting them; demanding that they call Travis County Sheriff Greg Hamilton; sticking out her tongue; making faces; kicking at the door to her cell; and eventually getting restrained with leg irons, being strapped to a chair and wearing what is commonly referred to as a “spit mask,” which is usually used when a detainee is spitting or biting. To be fair, the video does not expressly show that happening, and Lehmberg’s defense attorney later claimed that the mask was used to “protect her identity.”

What else could it be?

That women's drunk and digging herself a hole very deep hole. The cop gave her all the chances...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

Typical LOSER Demonrat response!!!!! I'm gonna sue you for telling me to shape up, or ship out

This classy lawyer lady, dressed to the "nines" in her stunning Sunday-go-to-meetin’ outfit, was simply showing all the signs of her approaching senior years. At 63, several of her gross motor skills are just starting to get a little rusty ... her arms, her feet, her legs, her hands, her balance, her mouth and several more; all of which are self-evident to any trained observer in the video. I'm sure her doctor prescribed a couple (only 2, no more) glasses of red wine at the end of every working day in court, to ease the debilitating pain in her failing left hip. Sadly she was fresh out of Red Wine (finished it up at lunch) and substituted an old bottle of vodka she just happened to have rolling around in her trunk. Therefore, she was just driving herself home from work, minding her own business and causing nobody any trouble; when some recalcitrant local tramp with a cell phone recognized her as the local District Attorney, and called in a totally false police report. Obviously that person had a vendetta against her from a prior court date. Those two local STORM TROOPERS were clearly guilty of committing Elder-Abuse and of providing unrequested standing-upright assistance and should BOTH be indicted for same, locked up forever and the key thrown away. IS THERE NO JUSTICE IN TEXAS ANY LONGER? Where was Eric Holder when she needed him; doesn’t she have him on retainer? God save us all.

Remember: Their ideology trumps everything else. And that would also include, race.

The Democrat DA stacked the County Grand Jury with Democrats...of course she got an indictment.

Doesn't make sense to give 7.5 million to a drunk to control.  Liberal attorneys force to work for a living instead of feeding from the State trough.  

 

There was a coyote that came after Perry, and it did not fare well either.

If you think this is "something new", you don't know about a certain still sitting judge in East Tennessee that has gotten a reputation for his public drunkenness, that every cop in the county knows where he lives because they have had to take him home to "sober up"!  His reputation was so public and well-known, that the Court of the Judiciary in Nashville finally had to "do something" about him - like threaten to remove him from the Bench and force him to relinquish his "silent partner" status in a local BAR. He would get drunk at the Bar, but put his drinking buddies behind bars the next day in court for doing the same thing he was doing with them the night before!

Some say he was noticeably drunk in court, to the point of falling to sleep during testimony in court!

Rumor has it that he has sobered up, but the reputation still stands, and he keeps getting re-elected every time his name comes up for staying or leaving!

Yes, folks, that name-recognition deal has some people really fooled!

ALERT ALERT

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
