    Court Orders Prosecutors To Stop Investigating Scott Walker’s Alleged Illegal Coordination

    "Saying they want to “prevent the chilling of otherwise protected speech,” the Court’s four conservative justices ordered that the probe be terminated, and that those working on the case “permanently destroy all copies of information and other materials obtained through the investigation.” They also emphasize that anyone connected with the alleged crime is not longer obligated to cooperate with investigators."

    Picked the story up from ThinkProgress eh? Well shock of shocks! Once again they're spinning a story to make it out to be something unrelated from the truth....

    No mention of this investigation being done secretly with John Doe warrants..

    Reason.com says
    The remarkably creepy case where Wisconsin prosecutors secretly raided and investigated conservative activists, ostensibly looking for campaign violations during the recall efforts against Gov. Scott Walker, appears to have formally come to an end. Wisconsin's Supreme Court has ruled that no laws were broken, and a majority has concluded that a section of the state's campaign finance law is "unconstitutionally overbroad and vague." From the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel:

    "To be clear, this conclusion ends the John Doe investigation because the special prosecutor's legal theory is unsupported in either reason or law," Gableman wrote. "Consequently, the investigation is closed. Consistent with our decision and the order entered by Reserve Judge (Gregory) Peterson, we order that the special prosecutor and the district attorneys involved in this investigation must cease all activities related to the investigation, return all property seized in the investigation from any individual or organization, and permanently destroy all copies of information and other materials obtained through the investigation. All unnamed movants are relieved of any duty to cooperate further with the investigation."

    Here's more.....

    The sweet unbiased think progress article doesn't say anything about this secret investigation going on for THREE YEARS and finding nothing

    Or the numbers of people who've been forced to testify in secret who've been told that if they speak about the investigation they will be imprisoned...

    (secret investigations threats to witnesses... welcome to the Democratic Gestapo Party)

    Witch hunt or bitch hunt either one. Thanks for the moderate assessment of Hillary's personality.
