Equal Justice Under Law (unless you are a Clinton)
Well folks, the fix is in for Hillary Clinton.
On Monday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton aboard his private plane, for about a half hour. According to the Attorney General, it was an unplanned, spontaneous meeting where the two of them talked football, grandchildren and the weather, but not about the two criminal investigations of Hillary Clinton, concerning her illegal use of a private e-mail server while she was Secretary of State, and her selling of favors to foreign governments in exchange for cash contributions to the Clinton Foundation.
If such claims by the Attorney General were not so laughable, anyone with half of a brain would know fully well that the two met specifically to plan a strategy on how to handle (or, as it should be said, not handle) any criminal referrals coming from the FBI. Since the Attorney General has the choice to refer, or not to refer, such a referral to a federal grand jury, it has become obvious that such a referral will not occur, regardless of an overwhelming preponderance of evidence that such a referral should take place.
Media and “insider” claims that Attorney General Loretta Lynch is a straight-shooter, devoid of political influence, are just as laughable, as evidenced by her remarks during a June 22nd post-Orlando press conference where she proffered that our best weapons against terrorism are “compassion, unity and love.”
Her appointment, subsequent to her predecessor’s (Eric Holder) resignation as the nation’s chief law-enforcement officer, was predicated on nothing else but her ability and willingness to selectively enforce the law, subject to the wiles of the Obama administration. That fact, along with the undeniable and inexorable truth that the Clintons have never had to face justice, despite decades of a well-documented and infamous record of criminal activity on both of their parts, underscores the reality that the application of justice in the United States depends strictly on who you are and who you know…
…and if you happen to be a Clinton, you can get away with anything and everything, without fear of having to answer to the law.
So much for the concept of “Equal Justice Under Law,” or some such rot.
