Jeremy Johnson held an interview last night with Fox 13 news about What Johnson Calls “Swallows Shake Down” . Johnson has changed his tone and view on Swallow and this is just the latest turn in the crazy story line. Also Jeremy Johnson’s lawyer Nathan Crane has asked to withdrawal himself from the case which is a little bit explained by Johnson in the video below.
Also Swallow has told and believed to promise Johnson a lot of things:
Over the course of the conversations, Johnson says he told Swallow paying Rawle would take all the money he had for a defense attorney, ”and his exact words were ‘trust me Jeremy, this is better than an attorney. You won’t need an attorney.’”
Which doesn’t seemed far fetched of Mr. Swallow to say this. I mean if he is willing to speak about “burner phones” from Walmart what else can we expect John Swallow to speak about?
Orrin Hatchhas been the latest Utah politician to be put on blast by the media. Hatch slipped in legistlation that helps or coddles to a drug company that has donated heavily to him over the years! I believe This ties into a whole tangled mess of politics in the State of Utah right now.
John swallow is one of the drones for Hatch, this whole ethical battle in Utah goes from Orrin Hatch to Gary Herbert on Down to Swallow with many other key players tied into the “good ol boy club”. This is depressing and sad Utahans that you allow yourselves to get pushed around, and snowed like this by your very own elected officials!~
If Utah doesn’t stand up for it’s self after this mess of ethic battles, bribes, sneaky legislation being passed, hidden agendas and god knows what else they do behind the scenes. Then Utah will have a very hard time removing this black cloud.
This is a recording that Hit the Salt Lake Tribune January the 29th of 2013 the recording is from April 30th, 2012. This is the type of things that go on locally and a National level inside of politics. WE as Americans have obligations to ourselves and this type of behavior is self inflicted. WE allow this to happen and it needs to change.
I believe this is a black eye that the Utah’s Attorney General John Swallow will never be able to shake. Also we really need to think do we want our top law enforcement officer buying a “burner phone” from Walmart? That’s what typical drug dealer, or criminal would do. They would do things to cover their tracks. I am sure This recording and flutter of stories from the SL Trib over the few weeks should only raise more questions for ALL politicians at ever level State and Federal.
Aaron Christnera former businessman who has started an online petition asking for John Swallow the Current Attorney General of Utah to step down from his post.
There has been a few claims in the paper about John Swallow since his inauguration this earlier this month and by the sounds of things it seems that more is piling on. An Advocate group based out of Utah has filed and official complaint against Mr. Swallow just recently and claim that he has broken 5 rules in terms related to the AG’s office. -reported by the Sltrib and Deseret News..
Attorney General petition
We will have to wait and see how things shake out for Utah’s Attorney General as this mess can take weeks if not months to sort out. In the meantime Utah House Members finally have called for someone to look at the ethics reform in Utah, which really does come as a surprise to most as they have battled against this type of reform for years.
