In the latest episode of California Attacks, attorneys for Jose Garcia-Zarate – the illegal alien who killed Kate Steinle – is accusing the federal government of malicious prosecution.
Garcia-Zarate was given what amounted to a slap on the wrist by a jury packed with extreme leftists who instead of delivering justice to a killer, chose to make a political statement against President Trump.
Here was his legal team delivering a lecture after the jury’s verdict:
It was one of the greatest legal travesties of recent times and to add insult to injury, his slimy attorneys are now looking to sue the feds.
When the activist jury let a criminal murderer off the hook the Justice Department indicted him on charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, and for doing so as an illegal alien.
Now he has become a martyr figure to the California crazies that are waging war on the rest of the country through the court system.

Via The Washington Times “Illegal immigrant charged in Kate Steinle death accuses government of ‘vindictive’ prosecution”:
The illegal immigrant accused in the shooting death of Kate Steinle is charging the federal government with “vindictive prosecution” and collusion with city and state authorities, and using President Trump’s tweets and public statements by him and his attorney general to make his case.
In a filing this week in federal court in San Francisco, lawyers for Jose Garcia-Zarate demanded that that the federal government hand over its communications with local law enforcement agencies — the San Francisco police, district attorney’s office and sheriff’s office — to let him prove collusion and double jeopardy.
Attorney J. Tony Serra accused Mr. Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions of using his client as a political punching bag and said their words suggest that Mr. Garcia-Zarate is being unjustly prosecuted.
“This case was highly publicized, both locally and nationally,” he wrote in the motion filed in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California.
“Almost immediately after the death of Ms. Steinle, then presidential candidate Donald Trump began to use Mr. Garcia-Zarate as the symbol of the dangers of illegal immigrants and the need for a wall between the United States and Mexico,” his filing says.
The lawyer noted that Mr. Trump’s campaign continued after his client’s trial on state murder charges.
This will most certainly add to the hatred that is being fomented by California officials about the legitimately elected president who lost the left coast shithole vote in a big way but we have this thing called the Electoral College that worked to perfection. California has been throwing a temper tantrum ever since and things are going to sooner or later come to a head.
The lawsuit to protect a criminal scumbag who should be deported comes on the heels of the state’s Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom smearing ICE as Trump’s personal army of hate.
Pity the family of Ms. Steinle who now has to endure this horror as well as the loss of their loved one and the refusal of a jury packed with wingnuts to punish him.
