From TPM Reader BW (Ben Waxman):
I have to say, McSwain’s comments today were pretty shocking, even to me. I’m not a casual observer– I was Krasner’s spokesperson throughout the campaign and transition. And then I was the Director of Communications for DA Krasner & and the Philly DA’s Office until the end of May.
McSwain has taken a number of shots at Larry over the past year, even adopting a case that he felt was handled too leniently by the DAO. It was unusual but all within McSwain’s power as a federal law enforcement official.
