~ Kendall Coffey, on the fairness of the Ferguson grand jury process in the case of Officer Darren Wilson. “I feel pretty clearly that rather than a leaderless grand jury investigation, this was a grand jury that was being led to a conclusion of innocence.

“Well, it’s very troubling and I think a lot of people are going to be more inclined toward conspiracy theory than coincidence theory. You’ve got two high-profile democrats being examined.
