It's really only a matter of time before political enemies start throwing this around and we see random (read: republican) politicians eliminated. cf. Circle, The.
In Luxembourg this is already happening now. We had this "bomb layer" affair 30 years ago, where it quickly turned out that some state actors must have been involved (police looking for an excuse for more funding? NATO "stay behind" group gone wild? who knows). So, the inquiry back then quickly stalled and was shelved.
For the 20th anniversary, a radio station was doing a "flashback" about the events, this caused old witnesses to come forward again, and somehow kicked justice back into action, the file was re-opened. And low, and behold, some of these witnesses were being intimidated with bogus child pornography accusations. Of course, the judge in the "bomb layer" trial saw through this, and the witness did not actually get into serious trouble from these accusations.
Roughly at the same time, a building contractor proposed a project to construct a huge football field plus mall in an environmentally protected zone. Lots of corruption money flowed to get the environmentally protected status of said zone lifted, to get bank credits at better conditions, etc. To bolster his influence, the building contractor even sponsored a national cycling team to run at the Tour the France. His guys were good for a couple of years. Of course, there were still people concerned about nature who opposed his project, and these people created citizen's initiatives against it, and asked pointed questions during meetings. And despite all the influence of the buidling-contractor-who-became-Tour-de-France-sponsor, the citizens did manage to derail the project!
Unfortunately, revenge was on its way. While being active in cycling sponsorship, the building contractor met interesting people, including that judge who was also a member of the board of Tour du Luxembourg. And hop, they just nailed one of the citizen's initiative people for child pornography, causing him a great amount of anguish and forcing him to retire 6 months earlier than planned. Eventually he managed to get all penalties overturned on appeal, but he did pass a couple of miserable years until then.
O, btw, did I mention that the judge was the same in both cases (bomb layer, and building contractor critic)? Funny how she can play both sides without blinking an eye...
