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
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.”
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.”

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.
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
