You will recall that last year saw the exposure of a particular wickedness in America with the Planned Parenthood baby-murderers being filmed haggling over their canapes and babies' organs. The courageous and psychological-warfare-savvy investigators had gone to great pains to gather compelling evidence against Planned Parenthood; evidence that did in fact explode onto the news and social media and send shock-waves through political hierarchies.
Planned Parenthood pulled out all the stops and called in all the favours that can be bought with half a billion bucks of taxpayers' money funnelled to them by the Democrat Party, Hillary Clinton and a small army of feminist organisations. They took 'legal action'.
David Daleiden and some of his co-investigators were charged with a variety of trumped-up charges.
But now a Judge has dismissed those charges.
Last charge dropped against anti-abortion duo
behind Planned Parenthood videosA Texas judge on Tuesday dismissed the last remaining charge against two anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos allegedly showing Planned Parenthood officials selling baby body parts.District Judge Brock Thomas dismissed the charge of tampering with government records against 27-year-old David Daleiden and 63-year-old Sandra Merritt upon the request of the Harris County prosecutor's office.
Bogus, politically motivated charges
"The dismissal of the bogus, politically motivated charges against [Center for Medical Progress] project lead David Daleiden and investigator Sandra Merritt is a resounding vindication of the First Amendment rights of all citizen journalists, and also a clear warning to any of Planned Parenthood's political cronies who would attack whistleblowers to protect Planned Parenthood from scrutiny," Daleiden said in a statement.The pair's attorneys had pushed to have the charge dismissed, saying Daleiden and Merritt never should have been indicted. If they had been convicted of the felony charge, each could have been sentenced to up to 20 years in prison.Prosecutors alleged that Daleiden and Merritt used fake driver's licenses to conceal their identities while dealing with Planned Parenthood.
It was pints all around in the Tavern.Daleiden claimed victory on Tuesday, not only for his legal woes coming to an end, but also due to the continuing investigation into Planned Parenthood's practices, an investigation spurred on by the videos he helped produce."A year after the release of the undercover videos, the ongoing nationwide investigation of Planned Parenthood by the House Select Investigative Panel makes clear that Planned Parenthood is the guilty party in the harvesting and trafficking of baby body parts for profit," Daleiden said.
