    "The Justice Department announced Wednesday that it will not retry John Edwards, two weeks after a federal judge declared a mistrial in his high-profile corruption case.
    The department formally abandoned its prosecution of the former Democratic presidential candidate by filing an "order for dismissal" earlier Wednesday in U.S. District Court in North Carolina. The motion dismissed the remaining five counts against Edwards on which the jury had been deadlocked. Edwards was already found not guilty on one other count.
    In a statement, Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer said the government has decided not to retry Edwards "in the interest of justice."

    Do you think justice has been served? Or did we just waste millions of dollars and never should have charged him in the first place.

      "in the interest of justice"....you h'got to love this. Edwards is part of the establishment and they protect their own as we all know by now.
      Should the Justice Department go after  all illegal contribution to politicians NONE of them will be safe
