On Tuesday, February 18, 2014, at 9:30 am MST, the closing arguments in Dobyns v. USA will be presented at the Evo A. DeConcini United States Federal Courthouse, 405 W. Congress Street in Tucson, Arizona.
I am asking that anyone who wants or can attend to please do so – for or against me; all are encouraged to be present and listen. I am inviting you knowing full-well that the government will do their very best to once again bash my head in and lay blame for all of this at my feet.
Especially those out there in law enforcement, please come. I want you to see for yourselves and hear for yourselves how the Department of Justice and ATF feel about me, and thus you. The governments attorneys will attempt to synopsize their view of the events I have faced. You will learn of what to expect should you be placed in the same predicament as I have been.
I am assuring to everyone who attends that you will be shocked and stunned. Maybe infuriated and sickened.
I can lose the final verdict yet still win. How? My single, focused goal of my lawsuit has always been to make the American public aware. That is coming true
The truth is the truth is the truth. That will never change. See ya in court. Please attend and decide for yourself if you believe I am right, or if I am wrong.
Judge Allegra went on to say that during trial, witnesses testifying for the government had answered questions in his courtroom with “less than candor”. That is a tactful way of saying they committed perjury, or for the rest of us laymen – they lied.
As a demonstration of the federal arrogance I have fought off for the past ten years, today, when DOJ’s Harrington was advised that his allotment of time before the court was running short and in the midst of trying to convince the court that the entirety of all of this was my fault, Harrington replied to the Judge’s advisement, “Your Honor, time flies when you’re having fun.”
Even the ATF’s Internal Affairs Division (IAD) formal investigation dated October 11, 2012 found 11 specific cases where the ATF had acted wrongfully.
The ATF and DOJ claim the ATF statutes violated do not constitute laws, but ATF internal rules that are only for internal procedures ... The ATF countersued for an infraction by Dobyns for not providing a copy of his last book "No Angel." The Federal government claims it was hurt by publically producing tradecraft secrets ... Dobyns also adressed the book saying, "It's the double standard that is promoted by Eric Holder. They want to hold me accountable for a violation of some minor internal policy to notify them of the publishing of my book ...It's a double standard that all of us as federal employees are subjected to."
During closing arguments, DOJ lead attorney, David Harrington, admitted that there was "no proper authorization of taping (Dobyns') phone calls."
Reed also focused on the three top ATF officials who testified during the trial that the investigation into arson was "embarrassing" and "worse than a mess."
Dobyns has said he blew the whistle on corruption. Reed presented an email between ATF Assistant Special Agent in Charge George Gillett to ATF Tucson Supervisor Charles Higman regarding the ATF's arson investigation.
Gillett wrote, "...what I can control (and fully intend to control) is the specific information that is briefed to the chain of command." The letter also contained, "I stand with you and your agents on this so not releasing significant details (to anyone) that we may discover that would compromise our work won't come from me. I'll go out of my way to conceal them. Please trust that ... I have enough LE and intelligence community experience to know how to protect myself and my subordinates. (I can hide the ball with the best of them.)
