Sarah Palin Not Subject of FBI Investigation

This comes from an FBI agency spokesman, so there's absolutely no doubt about it. The rumors and lies on the left wing blogs that she resigned because she's the subject of an FBI investigation are just that, rumors and lies:

A day after Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin resigned, a federal official in her home state dismissed one potential explanation for her sudden and unexpected resignation: a rumored FBI investigation into the former Wasilla mayor on public corruption charges.

Despite rumors of a looming controversy after the Republican governor's surprise announcement Friday that she would leave office this month, some of them published in the blogosphere, the FBI's Alaska spokesman said the bureau had no investigation into Palin for her activities as governor, as mayor or in any other capacity.

"There is absolutely no truth to those rumors that we're investigating her or getting ready to indict her," Special Agent Eric Gonzalez said in a phone interview Saturday. "It's just not true." He added that there was "no wiggle room" in his comments for any kind of inquiry.

Well, that settles that. And just in case some mainstream media outlets are still interested in smearing Governor Palin anyway, they've been put on notice by her attorney:

Ratcheting up her offensive against the news media, Gov. Sarah Palin's attorney threatened Saturday to sue mainstream news organizations if they publish "defamatory" stories relating to whether Palin is under federal investigation.

In an extraordinary four-page letter, Alaska-based attorney Thomas Van Flein warns of severe consequences should speculation that until now has largely been confined to blogs about whether Palin embezzled funds in the construction of a Wasilla, Alaska, sports arena find its way into print.

"This is to provide notice to Ms. Moore, and those who re-publish the defamation, such as Huffington Post, MSNBC, the New York Times and The Washington Post, that the Palins will not allow them to propagate defamatory material without answering to this in a court of law," Van Flein warned, citing Alaska liberal blogger Shannyn Moore.

"Just as power abhors a vacuum, modern journalism apparently abhors any type of due diligence and fact checking before scurrilous allegations are repeated as fact," the Anchorage attorney wrote.

Neither the Times or the Post made any mention of the embezzlement rumors in their Saturday editions, but sources close to Palin consider the letter a warning shot to stay away from the topic.

In the letter, Van Flein writes: "'The Alaska Constitution protects the right of free speech, while simultaneously holding those "responsible for the abuse of that right.'... These falsehoods abuse the right to free speech; continuing to publish these falsehoods of criminal activity is reckless, done without any regard for the truth, and is actionable."

I'm glad she's standing up for herself. She and her children have been the targets of media campaigns to defame, malign, and besmirch them. The liberals and progressives in the media hate Sarah Palin to their cores so they want to destroy her any way they can, and I think William Jacobson is right that it has always been about Trig:

If Sarah Palin had aborted Trig, the left would have been okay with it. If she hid Trig offstage and out of sight, all would be good. But treat the child as you would any other child, and that cannot be tolerated.

There is something about a Down syndrome child in plain view which has exposed the moral and emotional bankruptcy of the left-wing of the Democratic party. And they hate Sarah Palin because deep down, they hate themselves for being who they are.

Kurt Schlichter at Big Hollywood has an interesting take on the positives on Sarah's resignation:

Remember when Darth Vader faced off with Obi-Wan Kenobi? "If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine?" She's now immune from bogus legal claims and her book will not only raise her profile but set up her family financially for life. Now Sarah is unbound, freed from the need to be up in Juneau and able to network, fundraise and even (maybe) campaign without limitation. And the modern media environment will let her do these things without even a nod to the mainstream media (Do you think Katie Couric will ever get to ask Sarah another question? Ha!)

Lefties, if you were responsible for her doing this, you just unleashed your strongest opponent and made her immune from your strongest attacks all at once. Ouch. It must hurt to know a woman you pride yourself on seeing as a drooling Neanderthal nitwit so thoroughly out-maneuvered you. You do see it, right?

Be sure to stop by Kurt's post and watch the Star Wars clip he's posted.

I have no idea if Palin had a grand plan in mind when she resigned. I think she was doing what was best for her family and her state. I also think she was doing what was best for her Lieutenant Governor, too, because he will now be able to run as an incumbent. While she helped him, she took all the wind out of Hollis French's sails. He was prepared to run for governor against Palin and was going to get really nasty and use the same "it's not business, it's personal" tactics the MSM has been using. It sucks to be him right now.

I was glad to see the Palin's attorney go on the offensive. What I would really liked to have seen is Todd Palin flying to N.Y. and walking into Dave(I'm still here and unfunny)Letterman's and John(I fought in VN but, my heart wasn't in it)Kerry's office and ask them to repeat what they said about his wife and family in front of him. Both of the CS liberal jerks would probably hide under their desks.

Naughty Monkey red pump heel just planted right between the eyeballs of HuffPo "scum and villiany". LMAO!

This is how you fight back. Not in a war of words back and forth with Letterman, but via this sort of possible lawsuit.

IMO, this move by her is looking better and better. The fact that the DNC, and moobats nation wide view it as her death knell in politics only suggest they are really terrified of her now since being governor will no longer be a blocking agent.

As a non-Palinista, this move is one which makes me believe she really can do this. This is the type of move which I can support, and one which I believe will produce answers I need before signing up to campaign for her.

Andrew Malcolm at the L.A. Times said you cannot view this move by her to be all bad because we no longer live in an age where traditional is necessarily going to work, or be the best path to take. The election of President Candyland proves this. The American public is beyond fed up with politics, and politicians. I mean fed up to the gills! I believe she is now going to be viewed as an American. What a concept! We elect one of us, a real bona fide American citizen. Not a community organizer, not a inside the Beltway politician, not a lifetime politician, not a smooth talking big business type, but a bill paying American.

I agree - it certainly was better for the state if she quit and ran, just like she did. (Or if you prefer, "pass the ball for victory!") Normally the far right doesn't recommend a cut and run strategy, but I suppose it's better here? *shrug*

I still think there must be another shoe waiting to drop. If she plans on running in 2012 this move isn't helpful, but then again, maybe this is just another insane rogue move on her part.

That's a good time for it. Remind them that even "free" speech has a certain level of responsibility, and that FALSE political speech isn't protected as much as some people think.

No, you don't get to randomly make up whatever crap you want to about your political enemies and get away with it just because you call it "political speech." You can get away with a lot of crap in the US on those terms, but there are limits. Once you pass a certain line, you can still get your ass sued (sounds like some bloggers are going to get the monetary flip side of what the Democrats have been doing to Palin with their 100% false "ethics complaints").

Note also that even if your comments against a political figure like Palin aren't punishable under libel/slander laws, the associated slander and libel of the OTHER people in the story can still bite you in the ass.

So the false claims about the Palin house getting material from a government-funded project might not be completely actionable from the Palin side - but the contractor could sue the living hell out of the commenter for possible loss of reputation...

Unfortunately, a lot of the Left follow the "I can say whatever I want and not suffer any repercussions" philosophy. Heck, many of them think they can do whatever they want, including breaking the law, and still shouldn't be punished, no matter what.

DaveD:

Well jp2, it is OK to be fathomless. But consider what freeus has mentioned above. The (career) politicians on both sides of the aisle are not viewed with a great deal of love right now. So she divorces herself from the cesspool of personal destruction typical of the political class and the accommodating media. The Republican establishment may pretend she made a bad move and go tsk, tsk but I don't think they care too much about it really. 'Elite' Republican and Democrat politicians and pundits may openly disagree with each other on policy for our sake but at the end of the day they are all on the same side to preserve their power in Washington. What's the worst that happens to a career congressperson. You lose a committee chairmanship for a few years until your party regains power.

There is no way this woman deserved the treatment she received since her accepting the VP nomination. I don't really care if she's "polished". If I can understand her English well enough and her policies mirror my desires for the future of this country, she' got my serious attention. I feel there were no major upsides to her bremaining governor of Alaska. Her decision pales significantly to those who remain in politics for their own personal gain. Chris Dodd and Barney Frank are criminals in my mind. Sarah Palin? Really what is it with your ilk that has such a hang up about her?

She was completely unprepared and was exposed very early. (And she hasn't improved much either, case in point yesterdays bizarre speech) She made a very easy target. Just what do think was unfair though?

Really what is it with your ilk that has such a hang up about her?

Not sure if "hangup" would be the word I would use. Like I've said before, I'll probably donate to her campaign, whatever it is. I think she's a disaster in every way and now it looks like the pressure has caught up to her. As for others, I think they are confused as to how a serial liar (numerous, numerous examples) who lacks class (AYERS! OBAMA ~= TERRORIST) could have garnered any votes.

I would have been horrified if the Obama kids would have been treated the same way. Maybe the hangup is mine.

Who made these comments? Certainly not the opposition. The entire family was treated graciously by Obama's team. Besides Letterman and a handful of people on the internet, who has attacked her family? Just want some examples.

(Personally, I think she uses her family as a shield for attacks. She has no problem sending her daughter on a public pro-abstinence lecture series. But point out the hypocrisy? She has uses her Down's son constantly to show how pro-life she is - yet she even speaks about how she "made the choice" to have the kid. She can't have it both ways on everything.)

jp - "Who made these comments? Certainly not the opposition. The entire family was treated graciously by Obama's team"

Are you really that detached from reality not to notice or remember all the personal attacks that originated in the MSM?

Example: Fox News anchor Alan Colmes, of Hannity & Colmes, titled a post on his blog Liberaland "Did Palin Take Proper PreNatal Care?" In it, he wondered if she somehow was at fault for having a disabled child.

Nothing like being ignorant Colmes, Down syndrome is not attributable to any behavioral activity of the parents or environmental factors.

Example: Remember the Sherry Johnston drug arrest? Alaskan drug investigator Kyle Young wrote that the case "...was not allowed to progress in a normal fashion, the search warrant service WAS delayed because of the pending election."

Coverage of this unsubstantiated allegation - that turned out to be false - was run by MSNBC, CBS News, the New York Times, Newsday, the Washington Post, USA Today, and the Dallas Morning News.

With just a bit of intellectuality honesty, not to mention a few minutes of research, you too could find dozens of crap stories in the last months but I doubt you will.

It's much easier to snipe from the sidelines than it is to seek the truth.

Since you provided no links, I can only imagine Colmes was pointing out was how absolutely insane it was to travel across the country in your 3rd trimester WHILE LEAKING AMNIOTIC FLUID. I don't know of any woman that would do something so silly. In fact, most airlines ban passengers from even trying it. It's very, very irresponsible. If he actually implied that it caused Down's syndrome, medically that would be dead wrong. Down's is diagnosed far earlier. Anyways, provide some evidence and I'll gladly concede that point.

Lets assume that to be true... Ok "Mr. Pre-natal health care expert" just how would that cause anything close to down syndrome at that very late stage of pregnancy?

And BTW, you once again prove your ability at intellectual curiosity is about zero. There are plenty of stories on that post but you couldn't take the seconds to find them, what you won't find is the actual post. The asswipe Colmes pulled it down after being excoriated by several doctors in the comment thread and posted a screen shot of it.

Kinda hard to provide links to exactly what Colmes said when he wiped it from his site.
However you can check out this newsbusters post.

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/warner-todd-huston/2008/08/31/stooping-lowest-level-democratic-claim-palins-faked-pregnancy-ga

"Pile this on top of the low blow from TV's Alan Colmes who claims that Palin didn't practice proper prenatal care before she had the baby with Down's Syndrome, blaming the Mother for her disabled child. Well, the lefties don't know a low road they won't take. (Colmes' site has crashed right now, but this is the address if it ever comes back: http://www.alan.com/2008/08/30/did-palin-take-proper-pre-natal-care/)"

Down's is caused by an extra chromosome which Al Gore could tell you after all the flack he took from saying "extra chromosome right wing" which no amount of "proper prenatal care" would prevent.

Here is a wizbang post also speaking about the Colmes column.

http://wizbangblog.com/content/2008/08/31/you-stay-classy-alan-colmes.php

As I stated above. COlmes post, which can be seen on the screen shot, did not specifically mention the down's syndrome.

However logic dictates the following questions be asked.

a. If he wasnt talking about Down's syndrome then why ask the question at all?

b. Does anyone go around and ask about other women prenatal habits if there isnt something wrong with baby?

c. If Colmes was not in your opinion talking about the DOwn's syndrome than what in your opinion was he asking about? Leaking fluid on the airline flight? After all even Colmes admits that Palin consulted her doctor. If her doctor had no problem with it then why should Colmes? If the baby were healthy (without Downs) than would Colmes have asked this question?

I fully concur with your assesment that the article didnt mention the DOwn's syndrome.

Now if you would kindly give your opinions on the quesions posed in post 35. In short, if it werent for the downs syndrome, why even mention the late pregnancy plane trip especially since the baby suffered no effects because of it. Again, if the baby was born perfectly normal then would discussion of her flight even have taken place?

The fact is that many many people believe that Colmes was talking about Palin's child having Downs syndrome. You can argue that that isnt what he meant but then why did he remove the article?
