Two charged with Larry Householder on HB 6 nuke bailout corruption case ready to cop pleas

Source: Columbus Dispatch

At least two of the five people charged in the federal corruption scandal involving former Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder were set to finalize plea deals with prosecutors Thursday.

The federal court docket in the case listed plea agreements for Juan Cespedes and Jeffrey Longstreth, though the documents were not yet accessible. Attorney Mark Collins, representing Juan Cespedes, said a court hearing for his client would take place today.

Hearings were set for 2 p.m.Thursday for Cespedes and 3 p.m. for Longstreth, with court docket entries noting plea intents for both. Both also filed waivers to appear via video or teleconference in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.

Other details were not yet available, though a source close to the investigation told The Dispatch that Longstreth and Cespedes would plead guilty to one count each of racketeering, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

3. Pleading guilty or copping a plea

means trump can pardon them if there's a federal crime involved. If they plead not guilty, he can't pardon them. Can't use pardon powers until there's a crime or attempted crime accepted by the law.

Otherwise, the Trump Klan would already have been issued full, free and absolute pardons for anything in the past and be waiting for any new ones.

NO charges should be filed until AFTER January 20th 2021.

5. First Energy also has customers in western PA

and owns a nearby nuclear plant that they want to close. There's a similar bailout bill to the one in Ohio that's either in or passed by the state legislature. I wonder if some PA republicans will get caught up in this investigation, too?
