Queen Hillary: above the law


Haha, fooled you again, suckers!

Haha, fooled you again, suckers!

Very helpful having a name like ‘Clinton’ and lots of powerful friends in high places.

It means you can behave as if the law doesn’t apply to you.

Especially when you have committed numerous felonies like, oh, I don’t know, deliberately avoiding record keeping obligations to thwart FOI requests, storing classified information on an insecure server, using a personal email address for State business, sending top secret information through insecure channels – that kind of thing.

If these were the actions of just one of the ‘little people’, they would be indicted, tried and jailed.

But not Hillary – she’s just given a telling off, just a few days after Bill met US Attorney General Loretta Lynch ‘by chance’ and they just talked about holidays! No, really!

David Horowitz:

We knew they could fix the Department of Justice; we suspected they could fix the FBI. What we didn’t know was that the fixes would be this transparent: the secret meeting with a chief culprit and the DOJ head; the next day announcement by Justice that the Clinton bribery investigations would be postponed until well after the election; the suspiciously brief FBI interrogation of the former Secretary of State who during her entire tenure had recklessly breached national security protocols, deleted 30,000 emails; burned her government schedules; put top secret information onto a hackable server in violation of federal law; and topping it all the failure of the FBI director after enumerating her reckless acts to recommend a prosecution – all within a single week, and just in time for the Democrats’ nominating convention. It was, all in all, the most breathtaking fix in American history.

Disgusting.

  1. The lying remains a campaign issue, but you’re confused about the parameters of the relevant laws. If there’s no provable criminal intent, there’s no crime. Mistakes and incompetence matter, but again, they aren’t crimes. This doesn’t mean one can’t get fired or have to face administrative penalties, as Comey said. But you won’t go to jail. That’s true whether one is a top official or a low-ranking staffer. The system isn’t rigged. It has a high bar to meet to deprive citizens of liberty.

    Mr. Comey, a lifelong Republican, was previously the DA of Manhattan, and the Deputy AG of the U.S. He’s more qualified than most to know what level of charges will or won’t fly in court.

    • But it’s the job of a jury to determine the existence of such intent. A prosecutor would make a strong case that her actions are evidence of the required intent, and the only way to test that is in front of a jury.

      • No, actually prosecutors decide first, then they refer to Grand Juries, THEN to jury trials.

        Comey was a prosecutor, in the largest district in the country, and a prosecutor on behalf of the federal government as well. If he felt that case could not be made, based on available evidence, are you more qualified to say he’s wrong? I’m not.
