Texas Governor Intimidating Grand Jury, Prosecutor Claims

Updated on

Texas Governor Rick Perry seems to be threatening to retaliate against grand jurors who indicted him for felony abuse-of-office and is misusing rules to try to toss out the charges before trial, a special prosecutor alleged.

“The defendant’s own words have instilled a concern for all persons who participated in the grand jury investigation,” Michael McCrum, Perry’s special prosecutor, said in a filing made public today, asking a state judge to deny the governor’s request for grand jury transcripts.
