Prosecutorial Abuse of Power? Disgraced ex-U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town’s Alleged Misconduct Becomes a Tinderbox

[This post originally was published on July 1, 2021. Now eight months later, Town’s tinderbox appears to be engulfed in flames. An alleged federal probe appears to have caused abundant turmoil at Alabama Power, Balch & Bingham, and Drummond Company; and may finally bring down the house of marked cards.] 

Our sources in Washington, D.C. tell us that famed Baltimore legal powerhouse Venable appears to be engaged in looking into the alleged framing and set up of “fall guy” and ex-Drummond executive David Roberson, whose criminal lawyers rejected a no-brainer full-immunity deal with federal prosecutors.

As readers may recall, Balch & Bingham hired Venable in 2017 allegedly in an attempt to prevent the criminal indictments or prosecution in the North Birmingham Bribery Case. The effort failed.

So what is causing this stir and behind-the-scenes anxiety in Baltimore and Birmingham?

Disgraced ex-U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town we are told.

His alleged misconduct is stunning.

Now, we are wondering who is behind the latest efforts. Did one of the Three Stooges engage Venable? Was it Alabama Power, Balch & Bingham, Drummond Company or someone else?

Who are they trying to protect? Are more indictments coming? Is there a deep investigation happening as we write?

Tongues are on fire as the United States Congress investigates prosecutorial abuse of power. And sources tell us that as Venable snoops, Balch boosters and defenders are stressed out with excessive anxiety just as Town’s tinderbox appears to be ready to burn up.

What could this all mean, we ask? What could this all mean?
