Feds Might Be Close to Indicting Bonds

Barry Bonds and Greg AndersonTJ Quinn at the New York Daily News has been absolutely killing the scene when it comes to steroids and amphetamines investigations. I mean this guy is all over these stories. His latest suggests that the grand jury is close to indicting Barry Bonds (probably for charges of perjury). I just got done posting that at FanHouse, so take a look.

This is something I’ve been expecting for quite some time. Doesn’t it all make sense now why Bud Selig has kept his mouth shut about his plans to be in attendance for 756? He was just biding his time, waiting to see if the indictment would come first. Want to know why? Because he plans to suspend Bonds — who would be under investigation for knowingly taking steroids — if he gets indicted. That’s why Bud hasn’t opened his mouth. He was just waiting to see the progress of the grand jury. This would make quite the off-season. The absolute trifecta: Vick, Bonds, and NBA ref Donaghy. Fantastic.

    I think the indictment will be for tax evasion and perjury, with the former being easier to prove.

    The feds always are slow to indict. Unlike states and counties, they make sure their case is almost airtight before they seek the indictment. That is the origin of the expression “to make a federal case” out of something.

    I’m hoping that this is bad news for “Old Melonhead”, I mean Barry Bonds.

    From my experience, I have nothing but good things to say about the FBI. Naturally there are exceptions but I haven’t run into any. Certainly had far worse experiences with the CIA. I don’t want to go into details but my case is similair to this mans Ex CIA Agent Boris Korczak
