John Swallow News Roundup - Episode XLVII: U.S. Prosecutors "Dump" Federal Bribery Investigation

Out of the woods? Not yet...

Confirming rumors which were making the rounds last week,  both the Standard-Examiner and Tribune report this morning that "[the] federal bribery investigation against Utah Attorney General John Swallow and his predecessor, Mark Shurtleff, has been closed and no federal charges will follow, multiple sources said Thursday":
Needless to say, "Swallow was buoyant." '"I’m having a good day,' Swallow told the Standard-Examiner in a phone interview. He said he was surprised and pleased that the federal investigation was closed as fast as it was."

One down and another half-dozen to go, we suppose, whereby we'll reel off the Swallow investigative matters which still remain pending:
While Swallow is clearly breathing a sigh of relief, he certainly isn't out of the woods yet; and with yesterday's citizen call from the House Investigative Committee "asking Utahns who know anything fishy about our chief law enforcement officer to come forward," who knows what other and further accusations are yet to pop up?
Sit tight, O Gentle Ones. It's far from "over."
