The Justice Department’s decision not to bring charges against Tom DeLay after a six-year probe is the latest sign that DOJ’s investigation into disgraced former lobbyist Jack Abramoff is drawing to a close, without bagging the man prosecutors once thought might be the biggest prize of all — DeLay himself.
But in fact, DeLay is the fourth prominent politician whose federal investigation suddenly evaporated in recent months — seemingly as part of a push by Justice to overhaul its troubled Public Integrity Section, which is still smarting from the high-profile implosion of its case against the late Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens.
The Abramoff investigation has hardly come to naught. In all, 18 people have been convicted or pled guilty, with two more awaiting trials.
