OCALA, Fla., May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A Citizens Grand Jury has issued a criminal indictment charging Attorney General Eric Holder with testifying falsely to Congress over his role in issuing subpoenas to AP and Fox News reporters, his "Fast and Furious" gun-running scheme to Mexican drug dealers (which resulted in the death of an ICE Border Agent), and Benghazi. The indictment also charges Holder with obstruction of justice.
In the landmark Supreme Court case of Williams v. United States (504 U.S. 36 (1992)), Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority, held that the American grand jury, under the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, belongs to the people -- not the three branches of government. Indeed, the Citizens Grand Jury was widely used by the people before the nation had a Justice Department. There has never been an amendment to the Constitution that would preclude its use today.
"Given the compromised and corrupt state of the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government, the people have now been forced to use the Citizens Grand Jury as our Founding Fathers envisioned when the sovereign fails to take into account the grievances of the people. The Founding Fathers 'created' the Citizens Grand Jury as a safety value to allow the people to enforce the law when the politicians and judges subvert it. Today, 236 years after the Declaration of Independence, as the ruling establishment again ignores the grievances of the people, the people must use whatever legal means are at their disposal to wage a second American revolution. Holder, the highest ranking legal officer in the land, has subverted his office with his lies and deception, obstructing justice and even criminalizing the legitimate reporting of journalists. As our Congress is more interested in politicizing Holder's improper acts than seeking justice, the people have now come forward to act. Holder will now be arraigned and tried for his crimes ironically just after the July 4 holiday before a Citizens Court," stated Citizens Prosecutor Larry Klayman, the founder of both Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch.
Klayman organized a Citizens Grand Jury in Ocala, Florida, which is the epitome of middle America. "Ocala is destined to become the new Philadelphia -- meaning the people's place to have their grievances heard. Philadelphia 1776, Ocala 2013," he added.
