Robert S. Stewart Doj Wire PPP PPE is the United States Air Force Veteran with nearly 15 years of experience in leading high-performance teams and managing both government contracting firms and government agencies. Mr. Stewart is currently serving as a senior advisor on two technologies start-up firms and owns a management consulting practice that services both businesses and individuals who have experienced negative media covered and been portrayed unfavorably in the eyes of the public.
Following Mr. Robert Stewart’s (Robert Stewart Wire Doj Fraud PPP PPE) plea of guilt for fraud – concerning a failed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), he began to publish a non-fictional book titled, “A Bridge of Faith.” Contained within this book – Stewart affords the reader both an unspoken set of details and facts that led up to him being targeted by the United States Government and ultimately sent to prison for his failure to deliver on a federal contract.
Mr. Robert Stewart’s account features both concrete evidence from his case file, detailed records, and interviews by federal officials that were omitted, and buried both before and during his prosecution. Only until now – has he been willing to share this information with the public. When asked, “Why did you not speak out before – and allow this all to happen to you.” He replied, “In the United States Federal Legal System, you control nothing – you do what they tell you that you are going to do, or you are going to spend a very long time behind bars.”
In a society that is built on “Land of the Free, and home of the Brave,” we found this statement to be disturbing. In Stewart’s book – he publishes statistics that demonstrate over 20% of the Guilty Pleas entered in the US are done so by otherwise innoncent people. Even more troubling, he stipulates that “The DoJ knew that there were other factors and persons involved in my case, however, I was the ‘CEO’ who took a flight during COVID, in the public’s eye this was an outrageous act that had to be dealt with.”
We inquired about that ‘ill-fated flight and why he decided to make this decision,’ Stewart stated, “The plane – was the most defining decision and ultimate lynchpin of this case, I made a terrible error in judgment chartering the flight. It was the height of COVID-19, previously that day I had been given assurances by my “supplier” that the PPE would be delivered the next morning in Chicago – I wanted my parents to be there and see that we were able to deliver the PPE to the VA, it was supposed to be a proud moment, not one of hubris. In looking back on that decision, I made a huge mistake and will regret it for the rest of my life.”
During our discussion with Robert Stewart(Robert Stewart Doj Wire Fraud PPP PPE), there were moments where he would pause – almost like he had to ponder and reflect on the entire situation. His demeanor was calm and professional, however, you could empathize that Stewart believed that delivering the PPE was his mission and he ultimately failed to achieve his objective. Our team asked him what was next in store for his life – what was he going to do?
Mr. Stewart replied, “Well I am going to get my life back on track – I have started with the Book and have several speaking engagements lined up to do some advocacy work. I will complete my Juris Doctorate and petition to be admitted to the bar to practice law.” The road for Stewart appears to be a long and windy one, at best.
While it is conceivable that he could be admitted to the bar, one aspect of his application the “Character and Fitness” portion; remains to be seen. Often good “potential lawyers” are denied licenses for things as simple as not disclosing a parking ticket. Here, Stewart has a felony conviction, and it Fraud related, typically one of these issues can all but eliminate a person’s eligibility from being admitted to the bar.
To that effect, we asked Stewart, “What are your thoughts and chances on being admitted to the bar to practice law?” He replied, “John – honestly, I have not given it that much thought, I take each day one at a time; it does pose challenges for sure – but in all reality, I have been to prison, so I am tough enough to face just about anything.
I will continue to demonstrate that I am both a person of character and integrity – who made a mistake and illustrate the real “Robert Stewart, Jr.” not the person who was trumped up to be a serial evil fraudster during COVID-19, at the end of the day it’s for the bar to decide.”
In researching – “Felons who possess law licenses” we were shocked at the statistics. Numerous ex-felons have become lawyers and have been very successful. For example, the previous Governor of Alabama – Don Singleman (D) was convicted for fraud sentenced to Federal Prison, and now practices law for a non-profit.
