Mayor Carl Hutcherson: Consents to Wiretap
In the News and Advance today, they report had the FBI had used a wiretap, with at least one conversation between the Mayor Carl Hutcherson and Jerry Falwell Jr.
What was revealed by the News and Advance, on the face seems of possible help to the prosecution, or the defence. It all depends on how this all fits in with the other evidence.
There is something very telling in the transcript, and you may have to read it a few times to realize what is exactly going on. And while it did impress me a certain way, I would rather you make your own judgements.
I will point you in this direction, to give you a hint of what I am thinking. The call was made by Mayor Carl Hutcherson, in the presence of an FBI agent. The call was recorded with the Mayor's knowledge. In the transcript you will see one statement by Carl Hutcherson restated several times and appears to be the thrust of Carl Hutchersons conversation.
“I had a had an agent from the FBI come by." (Hutcherson)
"To ask me about the monies that we received earlier." (Hutcherson)
"And indicated that did not, that they knew it was a direct loan, and uh, to me." (Hutcherson)
The questions would be why did Carl Hutcherson consent to making a tapped call to Jerry Falwell Jr? And why did he continue to restate that the FBI knew it was a loan really to him?
Draw your own conclusions.
