Claiming that a so-called citizens grand jury has the power to indict and try top U.S. officials, a former federal prosecutor well-known for his conservative activism and views has convened such a panel in Ocala, Fla.
It has now “indicted” a number of top members of the Obama administration, including the president and Attorney General Eric Holder, as well as Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court. All will be tried in absentia in June or July if they don’t show for an “arraignment,” Larry Klayman tells Ocala.com, a newspaper website.
A Florida attorney, Klayman unsuccessfully sued President Bill Clinton over a dozen times while he was still in office.
While some Tea Party members have supported him, “If they took the time to look, they’d find a long record of scandal, failed lawsuits and outlandish claims that never panned out,” contends research director Josh Glasstetter of People for the American Way.
“Just last month, Klayman concocted a conspiracy theory about how the Texas fertilizer plant explosion was actually a terrorist attack by foreign Muslims intended to kill George W. Bush,” said Glasstetter. “Klayman said that the Obama administration knew all about it but was covering it up.”
