    He and McDowell arrive to find that O'Sullivan's legal team are intent on an adversarial approach in an effort to attack his integrity and then his motives. All behind closed doors. The transcripts we see are some of, but not all of, the arguments SC for O'Sullivan Colm Smyth and witnesses use against McCabe.

    We know that at a later point McCabe produced his recording. We know that O'Higgins listened to it. The Rooney questioning speaks for itself. Clearly, if you have been following the facts and are of sound mind, you would agree that the case presented by Colm Smyth is at best, fundamentally flawed, at worst, a complete and utter fabrication.

    Hence the judge rejected this as inadmissible. How do we know this? Because the findings of the O'Higgins Inquiry do not question McCabe's integrity or motives. This is the way our justice system works.

    I hope to God you never get jury duty.
    Sooner or later you'll realize that sock see's what it wants to see.

    Interesting take in some quarters on the person(s) who may have "leaked" information. Is this not somewhat similar to so-called whistleblowing without the act of actually sticking your head above the paraphet?

    We still have a curious attitude about the hated "informer" even after being free of British rule for nearly 100 years. It's the same attitude we seem to have to rules generally - for 700 years, disobeying rules meant 2 fingers to the authorities but we still haven't matured enough to realize it's not the Brits anymore...........

    That would be a neat theory except the Guards and DoJ are a continuation of the Brits.

    In the absence of any willingness on the part of our government to acknowledge or address question of corruption & collusion within DeptofJustice & their role in persecution of police #whistleblower, #FITZGERALD resignation serves only as distraction & diversion.

    This is crucial to the whole #FrancesFitzgerald saga: how did the Department of Justice not find the #McCabe emails straight away? https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/f...ion-1.3308241?

    FG's authoritarian streak is showing up once again.

    I said when George Lee left their cult, and the went ape, that they had an enormous intolerance of criticism of their political clique.

    And today we see a massive guilt trip effort from FG. The people were wrong to demand that somebody on an outrageous salary be sacked for persistent incompetence and lying. Now we have Dinnymedia telling us Fitzgerald was the victim !!!!

    The FG gang seemed jave found their inner blueshirt.

    Contempt for the people follows.
