We hear the blythe comments on the chat shows now that since Donald Trump pulled off an electoral miracle and won the presidency against the DNC, Clintons and the media–but I repeat myself–he should, for comity’s sake, call off the DOJ and FBI from continuing their investigations of Mrs. Clinton.
Mrs. Clinton broke several laws in her email server set up. Furthermore, she monetized her State Department office by giving family foundation “donors” special meetings and allegedly other spiffs. So much for canons of ethics and propriety.
So odious were these effronteries that even Democrats said ‘aw, hell naw’ when it came to pulling the lever for former Obama Administration state department chief.
But here’s the thing, with the call by the Democrats and now some on the Republican side to go easy on Mrs. Clinton to make sure people understand it’s not a political vendetta, they’re just underscoring the fact that it IS all political.
As we learned from FBI Director Comey when he whipsawed the country with his “Chinatown” investigation–she’s guilty, she’s not guilty, she’s guilty, she’s not guilty–people were rightly concerned about the taint of politics involved here.
And now for all those deplorables disgusted by what was obviously a two tiered legal system writ large in the dealings with Mrs. Clinton, they’re now supposed to purr to themselves that it’s alright because ‘we won’?
No, it doesn’t work that way. It’s not your call. It’s the law’s call.
No lectures about prosecutorial discretion. When something so egregious as a woman selling her office for personal gain–the country’s security and place in the world be damned–it’s not “political” when she’s investigated for malfeasances and utter disregard for her oath.
You want Trump to start draining the swamp? Then drain it and let people know you’re serious about it and won’t tolerate this behavior. That’s why the people hired you.
When you don’t, you’re merely another swamp thing.
