Now, despite having admitted on tape to an assistant DA that he knew about a future “soft cash” for “hard cash” transaction, an illegal act, Tom DeLay will eventually be vindicated claimed his hotshot lawyer Dick DeGuerin.
“DeLay attorney Dick DeGuerin told reporters the transcript context indicates DeLay couldn't have known about the money swap until after the deal was done -- and he said he would prove it by showing DeLay's calendar.”
Well that should do it. Nothing like coming up with a trump card like Tom DeLay’s own personal calendar to prove, once and for all, that he knew nothing about a pending cash exchange – an exchange to do something in Texas that you’re not supposed to be able to do.
I even got a peek at the calendar:
