The most superb factor in regards to the downfall of US legal professional Rachael Rollins is that it truly occurred in any respect.
Given her standing as a member of a number of protected courses, I believed she was completely immune, invulnerable.
And you realize what – so did Rachael, clearly, or she wouldn’t have behaved in such a brazen vogue.
How many occasions should I repeat the plain, historic knowledge?
“Never write when you can speak, never speak when you can nod, and never nod when you can wink.”
And to replace to in the present day: “And never, ever text. Period.”
Rachael Rollins is a textbook instance of why some distinguished figures by no means textual content, interval. Even a single ill-considered thought can sink you without end, no less than in case you’re not in a Democrat-protected class. But the lesson of Rachael Rollins is, sooner or later, you’ll be able to go to this point off the rails that even the protected-class shields fail.
Look on the texts between her and Ricky Ricardo Arroyo, the Boston metropolis councilor who was working final 12 months for district legal professional of Suffolk County, Rachael’s previous job.
Her saddest textual content of all could also be, “OFF THE RECORD!!!!”
Here are a few of her statements about her successor, Kevin Hayden, that turned out to be not OFF THE RECORD!!!!
She instructed Arroyo to have “No mercy. Finish him.” When Arroyo instructed her the Globe was on the brink of put a rocket in his pocket she replied, “I’m working on something.” When Hayden gained she stated, “They are not above the law.”
But Rachael was, apparently. Or so she thought.
“He will regret the day he did this to you. Watch.”
Hey Rachael, watch this. I simply considered one other previous saying that may be reworked for this event:
“It is better to remain silent and be thought corrupt than to begin texting and remove all doubt.”
Rollins requested her card-carrying fellow traveler Arroyo if his marketing campaign was doing opposition analysis on Hayden, together with “domestic calls to his house.”
Granted, politics ain’t beanbag. But rattling, anyone ought to be capable of cowl their tracks a bit higher than this. Like when she leaks a narrative to this newspaper after which when it seems she sends a textual content to one among her underlings:
“Wtf!?! When was the office contacted about this? And why wasn’t I called? How are they quoting things?”
Because you despatched issues to the newspaper, Rachael. That’s how. She’s too cute by half, to make use of one other previous political expression.
This is embarrassing for all involved, particularly the Boston Globe. They bit on the faux tales she was peddling about Hayden. But hey, the bow-tied bumkissers had an excuse – that they had fallen head over heels in love with Rollins. It was their largest crush on anybody since swooning over Monica Cannon-Grant, the BLM grifter and racial arsonist now underneath indictment by… the US legal professional’s workplace.
Reading all of the Globe pundits’ 180-degree U-turns on Rachael yesterday, I recalled the immortal phrases of the late Rep. Joe Early:
“They ran like rats!”
Just to quote one abrupt reversal, this was Joan Vennochi in 2021: “For Biden, Rachael Rollins is brilliant and a little risky.”
This was Joan yesterday: “The case against Rachael Rollins. She waged it herself.”
Baffling, all these anti-Rollins screeds in a Democrat agitprop sheet that simply two years in the past was assuring us that Rachael “came to office with a thoughtful and creative reform agenda.”
Monica Cannon-Grant couldn’t be reached for remark.
Some of the extinguished prosecutor’s texts are puzzling.
How about this one from final July 12 about some folks endorsing Hayden: “5 endorsements. 4.5 of them White.”
What does that imply, 4.5 of 5 are white? Was one among Hayden’s supporters… half-white? Rachael, isn’t your father a… oh, by no means thoughts.
So many different questions. Like, why do you suppose Arroyo’s father Felix “No Show” Arroyo abruptly give up his $174,532-a-year hack job on the courthouse a couple of weeks again? That query now appears answered.
Another thriller: do you suppose the Board of Bar Overseers has copies of those two stories, by the DOJ’s inspector normal and the Office of Special Counsel (OSC)? Can anyone say, disbarment?
Rachael was, as you would possibly count on, a legend in her personal thoughts. As she brags of a judicial ruling final summer time:
“Stood alone on this. Wrote the pleading and signed it myself. Fought my office tooth and nail to do so and then had to fight my 4 ‘collegues’ and won.”
Is she maybe referring to “colleagues?” I feel this provides us a clue as to maybe who dropped the dime on Rachael – her disgruntled collegues, er, colleagues.
By the way in which, the OCS factors out that “all text messages are reproduced as written and include the sender’s typographical and grammatical errors.”
Another query: are any heads going to roll on the Globe? I’m asking for a sure husband-and-wife staff. It’s Friday, all the time an excellent time for a late-afternoon hit. But hey, the requirements are totally different on the Globe.
At the Globe, in case you break tales and put dangerous guys in jail, you get fired, like Andrea Estes. If you get caught red-handed making bleep up, like Kevin Cullen, you retain shuffling zombie-like towards retirement, by no means lacking a paycheck, by no means breaking a sweat.
Full disclosure: I made the IG’s report, as form of an afterthought, after Rachael referred to as in to my radio present final Christmas. Not probably the most prestigious recognition I’ve ever obtained, however I’ll take it.
One remaining query: Who is finally liable for this horrible (dare I say it?) racist travesty in opposition to Rachael Rollins? I’ll guess you’ll be able to guess the reply. And certainly there it’s within the fourth paragraph of her lawyer’s response to the damning OCS report.
Rollins’ legal professional, Michael Bromwich, factors out that her best critic in Washington was Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton – “a strong supporter of former President Donald J. Trump.”
Bingo! I knew it!
“The Trump Administration,” Bromwich continued, “was populated by several high-ranking officials who openly, routinely and defiantly violated the Hatch Act with no consequences.”
Amazing. In addition to every little thing else he did, Donald Trump whacked Rachael Rollins! Is there something Trump can’t do?
