New attorney general: "I would indict Hillary Clinton"
President Trump's new attorney general will enforce the law. Washington is shocked.
In July 2016, he took Jimmy the Weasel to task in a column for USA Today, headlined, "I would indict Hillary Clinton."
The new general, Matthew Whitaker, wrote, "According to FBI Director James Comey’s statement on Tuesday, former secretary of State Hillary Clinton could have been charged with violating several different code sections, and he detailed the evidence that supports bringing criminal charges.
"Yet, Director Comey’s judgment was that 'no reasonable prosecutor' would bring the case. I disagree. I believe myself to have been a reasonable prosecutor, and when the facts and evidence show a criminal violation has been committed, the individuals involved should not dictate whether the case is prosecuted."
Wow. In Washington that is crazy talk. In Washington, there are two sets of laws, one for Republicans and one for Democrats.
Drive drunk and kill a lady? No problem, Ted Kennedy. Not being able to run for president next year is punishment enough. You can run nine years later.
Scooter Libby lies to a special counsel over something unrelated to the assignment the prosecutor was given? Six months in prison.
Whitaker wrote, "The facts also show it was gross negligence when she removed the information from State Department security. Secretary Clinton made the decision to use a personal email system, one that had inferior security to the State Department’s or even another commercial vendor’s email service.
"A reasonable prosecutor may ask, if on numerous occasions, an unknown State Department employee had taken top secret information from a secured system, emailed that information on a Gmail account, and stored the information on a personal server for years, would that individual be prosecuted? I believe they would."
I think we have the attorney general we need."
And that's not even going into destruction and tampering of evidence.
Bottom line...... at best (not assuming criminal cover up) their balls shriveled up at the thought of indicting a Presidential candidate, much less the presumed winner of said election.
Indicting someone is easy. But yet the GOP led DOJ has done nothing. Why do you think that is?
Would trump do that? We all know that answer already.
