Chutzpah on steroids: Kate Steinle’s acquitted killer in the country illegally sues US government

Surprising the guy’s lawyers haven’t yet filed suit against the NRA.

Come to the U.S. illegally six times, literally get away with murder, then sue the government for using you as an example of part of the problem with lib sanctuary city policies? It’s come to this:

That sounds about right these days:

The illegal immigrant accused in the shooting death of Kate Steinle is charging the federal government with “vindictive prosecution” and collusion with city and state authorities, and using President Trump’s tweets and public statements by him and his attorney general to make his case.

In a filing this week in federal court in San Francisco, lawyers for Jose Garcia-Zarate demanded that that the federal government hand over its communications with local law enforcement agencies — the San Francisco police, district attorney’s office and sheriff’s office — to let him prove collusion and double jeopardy.

Attorney J. Tony Serra accused Mr. Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions of using his client as a political punching bag and said their words suggest that Mr. Garcia-Zarate is being unjustly prosecuted.

“This case was highly publicized, both locally and nationally,” he wrote in the motion filed in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California.

I’m a little surprised that guy’s lawyers haven’t filed a lawsuit against the NRA yet — and you know that’s something the likes of Nancy Pelosi would get behind.
