Former Pitt student hopes to clear name in bomb threats case
“I hope this finally clears me because I’m completely innocent,” said Seamus Johnston, 22, of Jackson, Cambria County, upon leaving the federal building, Downtown.
Mr. Johnston’s partner, Katherine Anne McCloskey, 56, who also had been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh to provide fingerprints and writing samples, said in a telephone interview she could not do so Friday because she had injured herself in a fall the preceding night. She said she would provide the samples when she appears before the grand jury on May 22.
Seamus Johnston, who was born a woman and now lives as a man, left the federal courthouse late Friday afternoon after nearly four hours there saying he was exhausted but hoped, “this would clear his name.”
I thought she was a hell or high water, in your face, stick it where the sun don’t shine type person and would have shown up to provide it. Maybe they’ll accommodate her by coming to their apartment with a warrant and a mobile print kit and ask her to write a paragraph or two, if her writing arm and hand aren’t affected.
Aside from protesting the extrajudicial function of the grand jury and its subpoena, might there be something going on with the fingerprint issue unrelated to the written threats left on campus?
May 22nd is a long time to wait.
