Justice (noun) “…the maintenance or administration of what is just by law…”
Nowhere does the two-tiered justice system get more empirically defined than in the case of Hillary Clinton-&-accomplices versus Donald Trump and his aides.
Two-tiered justice: When some are held accountable to the law, but others are not; as in not indicting Hillary-&-aides where there is solid evidence crimes WERE committed, but indicting Trump aides based on an investigation where there’s no underlying crime.
Andrew McCarthy points this out today: “Hillary Clinton checked every box for a violation of the Espionage Act…Mrs. Clinton’s unlawful storage and transmission of classified information had been patently willful. In contemptuous violation of government standards, which she was bound not only to honor but to enforce as secretary of state, she systematically conducted her government business by private email, via a laughably unsecure homebrew server set-up…Her Obama administration allies stress that it was not her purpose to harm national security, but that was beside the point. The crime was mishandling classified information…she committed it.” (bold, underline added here, and in paragraph excerpts below)
(And no, ‘intent’ is not noted, or a driver, in the relevant statutes involved…but even if it were, the very act of setting up a private server system DEMONSTRATES intent.)
Yet, Obama’s Justice Dept. refused to charge her, or her aides. (More on that below)
Then, there’s former acting FBI dir. Andrew McCabe: “McCabe is feeling the heat because the evidence that he made false statements is daunting. So daunting, in fact, that even he concedes he did not tell the truth to investigators.”
But, where Hillary is happy to duck-&-cover, hoping the smoke blows over, McCabe has decided to take it to a whole new level: “McCabe is suing the government for wrongful termination, arguing that he was fired due to a political vendetta carried on by President Trump.” But, McCarthy notes: “…it is an audacious strategy on McCabe’s part to (a) ask the Justice Department to exercise clemency by declining to charge an eminently prosecutable false-statements case against him, while (b) simultaneously hauling the Justice Department into court on an accusation of bad faith in a case in which McCabe leaked and then provided explanations that weren’t true.”
So, one investigation revealed REAL evidence of a crime…but no indictments; the other investigation revealed NO crime…yet indictments resulted. Two-tiered? You Bet.
And no one benefited more from this two-tiered justice than Hillary and Obama.
Both were using private unsecured email systems. Hillary and aides willfully destroyed subpoenaed emails. One wonders why anyone would so brazenly commit that act, but context may provide the answer: “The destruction of the emails, moreover, occurred after a House Committee investigating the Benghazi massacre issued subpoenas and preservation directives to Clinton’s State Department and Clinton herself.”
What would justify such a clear, undeniable act of deliberate evidence destruction?
If, in fact, then-Sec’y of State Clinton and then-Pres Obama had unsecurely emailed classified data that revealed arms handling around Benghazi, and those emails had been hacked, prompting Benghazi attacks and American deaths as the result…it would have been a political death knell for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
McCabe can be dealt with swiftly; asking for good-will leniency while suing for bad-faith termination is a losing proposition…but he’s a bit player in a larger scheme. Hillary-&-co., on the other hand, is a different proposition desperately in need of resolution.
Thankfully, there’s a one-acronym solution: N-S-A.
Hillary’s toadies with Bleachbit may have wiped her servers, but the NSA has EVERY email sent over the years in a massive database…and Pres. Trump is its boss.
Americans deserve to know the truth, on Benghazi as well as the 2016 chicanery.
Anything less leads to even greater mistrust of government.
Is it to be EQUAL justice under the law…or 2-tiered justice, based on political Party?
Political expedience should not define what is ‘Just, by law’…should it?
Your move, Mr. President.
