Reports and all kinds of rumors swept through the city today regarding Seth Williams and the feds.
The first reports involved the feds allegedly escorting Williams out of the D.A.'s office early this morning. Next, the D.A. was supposedly sighted at the federal courthouse at 6th and Market.
Meanwhile, like a pack of vultures, a crowd of reporters and TV camera crews was gathered outside the D.A.'s office, as if they were expecting some sort of big announcement today as the Seth Williams death watch went into full swing.

A federal grand jury is known to be probing those gifts and income, to find out whether they were really quid pro quos. There was also a question of whether Williams reported those gifts and income to the IRS, which would amount to further troubles for our beleaguered D.A.
The other hot rumor of the day was that the U.S. Attorney's office out of New Jersey [the U.S. Attorney's office in Philadelphia had washed their hands of the Seth probe] was investigating whether one of those gifts given to the D.A. was in exchange for favorable treatment in a criminal case.
At philadelinquency.com, Master Blaster wrote, "Is today the day of the big indictment? . . . I think we're going to find out real soon why Rufus (that's his real name) decided to hang it up and not run for reelection."
But by late afternoon, there were no announcements forthcoming.
For further evidence of why our corrupt D.A. should resign from office immediately, please read the stories posted on this blog about the South Philly bank job that the D.A. was reluctant to prosecute, and the cases of domestic violence that the D.A.'s office wouldn't prosecute.
As a public service, while the Seth Williams death watch is in progress, Big Trial will publish several more stories this week about the carnage our corrupt D.A. has inflicted upon the city.
