Lynn Stewart, the psychopathic leftwing pro-terrorist lawyer who defended the instigator behind the first WTC attack in 1993, is to be sentenced for her role in aiding those terrorists.
The left is not happy. Because they constantly side against America, we can understand why.
N.Y. lawyer's case prompts debate on Bush tactics
NEW YORK, Oct 12 (Reuters) - The case of a New York attorney convicted of aiding terrorism has prompted debate among U.S. lawyers about whether the Bush administration wants to scare them away from representing terrorist defendants.
Lynne Stewart was convicted in February 2005 of helping a client smuggle messages to militant followers and is to be sentenced on Monday. She faces more than 15 years in prison.
"Her case is an example of the way in which the government is equating individuals who represent terrorists with terrorists themselves -- that language of 'if you're not with us you're against us'," said Rachel Meeropol of the Center for Constitutional Rights.
"It's a scare tactic," she said. "It is worrisome that attorneys might become less able to represent out of fear of being prosecuted."
Hey! Who is Rachel Meeropol? She is the granddaughter of notorious traitors Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were executed for heping the Soviets get the atomic bomb. So it is not strange that that family continues to support those who wish to destroy America.
