Once upon a time a unique Republic was a country where the rule of law maintained at least the appearance of constitutional government. The role of the US Attorney General was based upon enforcing accountability for government officials who broke statues. America like all other countries always had their share of crooks and thieves in public office. In spite of this, reasonably clear standards for prosecution were honored and appropriate indictments would follow. Politicizing the Department of Justice was not the measure of filing criminal charges.
Today, any thinking and informed person will conclude that justice is seldom achieved when the AG operates as a political tool for the government protection racket. When the Clinton machine is shielded from the punitive punishment that destroys ordinary officials, it should not astonish that an independent prosecutor or inspector general would be stonewalled in the finest tradition of the crooked political class.
Written six months ago, the Radical Reactionary essay, Hillary Express Hits a Wall deals with political reasons why Hillary Clinton is unqualified to be President. With the revelations of the knowingly mishandling and conscious circumvention of government communication on an unsecure server, the conditions are ripe to hold Clinton accountable for her misdeeds.
Will political pressure build to force a Watergate style investigation or will the cover-up culture keep defending their symbolic champion for totalitarian collectivism?
In a superb article by Sidney Powell published in the Observer, The Countless Crimes of Hillary Clinton: Special Prosecutor Needed Now the corruption of a legal system that favor a protected class, while punishing persons who represent a threat to the power elite, is noted.
“While the FBI and Department of Justice have willfully ignored Hillary Clinton’s outrageous conduct, they didn’t hesitate a minute to investigate and prosecute former CIA Director and national hero, General Petraeus. He was just tarred, feathered and ridden out of the CIA on a rail for sharing some information (his own notebook) with his biographer who was both in the military and had a top secret clearance. Yet, Petraeus did not have a secret server set up to house his classified and top secret information or digital satellite imagery; he destroyed nothing; and, there was no “leak.” But that’s not all.
During the same years that Hillary was communicating about national security and world affairs off the grid, the Department of Justice has had no qualms threatening news reporters and prosecuting whistleblowers under the Espionage Act. To hell with the First Amendment and Supreme Court precedent, even the New York Times reported that this administration prosecuted more reporters and whistleblowers for “espionage” than all prior administrations put together.”
The Intercept publication lead contributor Glenn Greenwald, Hillary Clinton on the Sanctity of Protecting Classified Information, cites additional examples of selective prosecution.
“NSA whistleblower Tom Drake, for instance, faced years in prison, and ultimately had his career destroyed, based on the Obama DOJ’s claims that he “mishandled” classified information (it included information that was not formally classified at the time but was retroactively decreed to be such). Less than two weeks ago, “a Naval reservist was convicted and sentenced for mishandling classified military materials” despite no “evidence he intended to distribute them.” Last year, a Naval officer was convicted of mishandling classified information also in the absence of any intent to distribute it.
In the light of these new Clinton revelations, the very same people who spent years justifying this obsessive assault are now scampering for reasons why a huge exception should be made for the Democratic Party front-runner. Fascinatingly, one of the most vocal defenders of this Obama DOJ record of persecution has been Hillary Clinton herself.”
The fact and recovery of the deleted emails should be able to be retrieved, as stated by Brian Reid, a cybersecurity expert with Internet Systems Consortium, “Archival back-ups can be subpoenaed. They are evidence,” he said. “They’re extremely hard to wipe clean.”
McClatchy News Service goes on to report in the column, Senate committee seeks email facts from Clinton’s tech company.
“The declaration by Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III, however, ramped up the stakes, because security officials had been less concerned about the arrangement if information was classified no higher than “Secret.”
Platte River’s services were sought in early 2013 to improve security of the server, which was installed for former President Bill Clinton at the couple’s home in New York state years earlier, The Washington Post reported recently.
The Colorado firm’s hiring coincided with the discovery that an email account for Clinton’s longtime confidant, private consultant Sidney Blumenthal, had been hacked by a Romanian national Marcel Lazar Lehel, known as Guccifer.”
With the serious nature and surreptitious intentions to conceal the record of official communication, the political fallout to Hillary’s presidential campaign is self-evident. By any objective yardstick, the seasoned and pragmatic Democrat operatives within the party should close the door to her presidential run.
The recollection of the Clinton White House years in the 1990’s was one of continual scandal, lies and deceit. Nothing will change under a Hillary administration.
With that said, it is still doubtful that any criminal consequences will face the queen of mean.
Hoping that an indictment of Hillary would follow, is rejected by Justin Raimondo as he writes in Chelsea Manning and Hillary Clinton: A Case of Double Standards.
“Hillary had her staff print out 55,000 pages of emails to hand over to the office of the Inspector General, which is in the process of reviewing them – but already we have these major revelations of wrongdoing, including possible felonies committed by some in her inner circle, throwing the possibility of her own collusion in the mix. The FBI has taken custody of the server: will they soon be taking custody of some top Clintonians – or even Hillary herself?
The answer to this last question is undoubtedly no. Regardless of what is revealed – short of outright espionage – Hillary Clinton isn’t going to face any legal repercussions.”
This assessment sums up the reality of the injustice system that is administered by the Department of Unjustice.
Clearly the Democratic Party would be smart to dump the serial and systemic crook. There is a profound reason why the outsider campaigns of Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina are gaining popular support across party lines. They are all outsiders and represent a fresh message to the stale and obsolete Potomac practices.
The test for justice in this country has failed in the courts for decades. The esquire legal establishment is all about catering to the interests of the governmental and corporatist class.
Professional politicians by definition and nature are parasites. The celebrity status among progressives that Hillary Clinton has enjoyed for years is in danger of being cancelled. The crowds for Bernie Sanders demonstrate a Clinton fatigue and saturation similar to an episode of a Kardashian unreality show.
Likely Democratic voters need to earn some much needed self-respect and dump the witch.
When the former Speaker says, Newt Gingrich: Hillary Would Be Indicted if She Was Anybody Else, he is correct. “If Hillary Clinton were any other public figure, she’d face indictment for her role in a foundation that was accepting multimillion dollar contributions from foreign governments.”
Well getting a pass on out right extortion and accepting bribes may not seem too important to the electorate, but her treatment of State Department emails may begin to carry the political weight to get her withdrawal from the presidential race from her party’s financial backers.
Wall Street cronies and donors who flock to the Clintons are beginning to back away from the bad press. Little talk has been leveled for charges of obstruction of justice, but for any well schooled Clinton onlooker the sleaze factor is spreading all over the Democratic Party itself.
The way to remove the Hildebeest from the headlines is up to the Democratic Party bosses to tell her that her time is up and to go away, drop back into her Clinton Foundation tax evasion scheme.
The sycophant clingers to the Clinton machine need to find a new candidate. Surely a party that produced a Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a Henry “Scoop” Jackson and a Sam Nunn could come up with a modern day William Proxmire to run as their Presidential standard bearer.
While these former Democrat Senators had their own warts and flaws, all would make Hillary look like the incompetent and dishonest crook she has always proven to be.
The failure of the Democratic Party is that cultural Marxist like NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders make Hillary Clinton look main stream. In actuality their “so called” social justice rhetoric is no positive alternative to the systemic corruption that has captured both major political parties.
Hillary is not just a symbol of the past, she is every bit a Saul Alinsky authoritarian radical as the rest of the crew from communist comrades. As for justice, when was the last time a political Marxist was sent to jail for their crimes?
