Of course their conspiracy theories are the "good conspiracy theories" not the bad conspiracy theories the media talks about when citizens of the United States suspect a criminal conspiracy.
In federal courts, one of the most popular charges is a conspiracy theory, that is, a charge that the conspirators did thus and such.
About one anniversary ago the Department of Justice advanced a conspiracy theory that voting machines had been rigged by conspirators to throw an election:
[The conspirators] together with other persons known and unknown, being persons employed by and associated with the Clay County Board of Elections, an enterprise, which engaged in, and the activities of which affected interstate commerce, knowingly willfully, and unlawfully agreed and conspired to violate [various federal criminal laws] It was part of the conspiracy that each defendant agreed that a conspirator would commit at least two acts of racketeering activity in the conduct of the affairs of the enterprise.(The Indictment, PDF, emphasis added). Voting machine conspiracy theories are said to be the worst kind of paranoia the conspiracy theorists ever think up.
The Defendant ... instructed other election officers on how to ... change votes at the voting machines in furtherance of the scheme to elect their “slate” of candidates.
That is what the main stream media says anyway.
Well, the jury must be conspiracy nutters too, because they convicted 8 of the election officials:
A jury convicted a former judge and seven others on Thursday of scheming to buy votes for several local offices in an eastern Kentucky county.(Lexington Kentucky Herald Leader, emphasis added). Wow, what is this nation coming to when conspiracy theories are a part of our legal system?
The jury in U.S. District Court in Frankfort deliberated for nine hours over two days before convicting all eight people in a federal racketeering conspiracy. Those convicted on Thursday included former Circuit Judge R. Cletus Maricle and former school Superintendent Douglas C. Adams.
What is next, Alice In Wonderland becoming a judge?
There is a long history of electronic voting machine fraud allegations in the United States, but since we all know these are conspiracy theories, no one ever pays attention to the allegations of computer experts and others the main stream media call nut jobs.
They even allege that gerrymandering is a conspiracy to commit election wrongs just because some election districts snake their way across some states, going through as many as 25 counties in some cases.
Did you hear the one where a neoCon far right winger won hands down in Teddy Kennedy's district he had held for many decades, even with all the sympathy for his efforts on health care and his death?
Health care won but in effect he didn't because a liberal ran against the conservative?
I guess that the DOJ lawyers just have too much time on their hands now that war crimes are no longer against the law?
