The Harris County District Attorney’s Office blasted far-left judge Lina Hidalgo and told her to stop criticizing the grand jury that just indicted her top staffers.
Three of Judge Lina Hidalgo’s staffers were indicted last week after prosecutors expanded the investigation into an $11 million ‘vaccine outreach contract’ awarded to one of the judge’s political cronies.
Texas Rangers last month raided the office of Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo and executed a search warrant related to an $11 million ‘vaccine outreach contract’ awarded to one of the judge’s friends.
Hidalgo lashed out at county prosecutors during an interview with ABC 13 last Wednesday, calling the charges ‘partisan politics.’
“At best, this is going forward with a fundamental misunderstanding of the facts and at worst, it is the weaponization of the criminal justice system for political purposes so I’m not going to play into that,” Hidalgo whined to ABC13. “My staffers are hardworking people. They work day and night for the people of Harris County and we’ve got work to do, like this catalytic converter issue or like childhood education, homelessness, huge wins.”
The Harris County DA’s office this week told Hidalgo to shut up and stop criticizing the grand jury.
ABC 13 reported:
The Harris County District Attorney’s Office responded Monday to an
attack last week by Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo, who characterized
an indictment against three of her staffers as weaponizing the system
with a “flimsy” case.
“Grand jurors give up countless hours of personal and professional time to serve and their service should never be disparaged or dismissed,” Dane Schiller, a spokesperson for the Harris County DA’s Office, said in a statement. “We want to thank the grand jurors in these public corruption cases for their hard work over a five-month period in which they reviewed voluminous documents and heard from numerous witnesses. Our work continues.”
