POST AND COURIER, 12 NOVEMBER 2016, FEAT. PROF. JOHN FREEMAN:
COLUMBIA — It’s been five months since the state Supreme Court gave special prosecutor David Pascoe the keys back to his Statehouse corruption investigation, which legal experts say could soon result in indictments.
With an impaneled state grand jury, the case has produced few rumblings since mid-September when, at Pascoe’s request, Statehouse Republicans delivered files covering the past six House majority leaders and the past 21 years.
John Freeman, University of South Carolina School of Law professor emeritus, said he thinks that if Pascoe didn’t believe he had something, he still wouldn’t be investigating.
