DA knew witnesses were lying in the Brown grand jury

Wow. See the video below and this partial transcript. DA McCulloch knew some of the witnesses he presented to the grand jury were lying. He even admits that one witness, the one Fox has been quoting repeatedly, was never at the scene and just culled new reports for her false testimony. He rationalized that he had to present all the witnesses to be fair, total bullshit.

Meanwhile, you'd think he'd know that Missouri Supreme Court Rule 4-3.3 uneqivocally states:

"a) A lawyer shall not knowingly: (3) offer evidence that the lawyer knows to be false. If a lawyer, the lawyer’s client, or a witness called by the lawyer has offered material evidence and the lawyer comes to know of its falsity, the lawyer shall take reasonable remedial measures, including, if necessary, disclosure to the tribunal. A lawyer may refuse to offer evidence, other than the testimony of a defendant in a criminal matter, that the lawyer reasonably believes is false."

I wonder if the Bar or the Supreme Court will hold him to the fire on this?
