One of our sources claims that Judge Carole Smitherman and her husband State Senator Rodger Smitherman are allegedly quietly cooperating with federal investigators.
We have also recently learned that Robert M. Ronnlund’s alleged acts of criminal obstruction of justice, alleged alteration of evidence, and what appears to be acts of perjury by Balch & Bingham and the co-conspirators in the Newsome Conspiracy Case are under review.
Earlier this summer, we asked our high-level contacts at the U.S. Department of Justice to have someone specifically review the Newsome Conspiracy Case.
While the dog may have eaten Ronnlund’s homework, the Smithermans have intelligently gotten in front of this runaway train that is headed right into a brick wall.
We applaud the Smithermans for doing the right thing.
Who wants to end up like former State Representative Oliver Robinson now facing 100 years in federal prison because he participated in a bribery and money laundering conspiracy headed by convicted felon and ex-Balch & Bingham partner Joel I. Gilbert?
