Ignore, for a hot second if you will that Hillary Clinton should be spending the remainder of her years in a jail cell.
Its actually a moot point which doesn’t particularly bother me anymore.
But there is something that does bother me in the E-mail/obstruction/benghazi/bribery/Clintonfoundation/slush fund racket shes got running.
Just to Re-Hash:
Hillary Clinton, a Government Employee, set up a private e-mail server to avoid political scrutiny of her actions as secretary of state. (This in itself is illegal, but ignore that.). For reference imagine sitting at your computer at work emailing your companies client from your yahoo account.
I believe she did this so that she could run a pay for play bribery schemes with Clinton Foundation donors away from the prying eyes of republican investigatory committees and those pesky Freedom of Information Act compliance requirements. If true this is illegal, obviously, but ignore that as well.
This E-mail server was eventually hacked by foreign entities which demonstrates clear mishandling of classified information, another crime not to mention gross incompetence. Ignore that.
She went before Congress and said she did not send any classified information over her private email. The FBI has stated that this is not true and constitutes perjury before congress which is a 5 year jail term. Ignore that as well.
She was asked to hand EVERYTHING Over to the FBI. She violated this order and said she wasn’t turning over “personal emails” that relates to Chelsea’s wedding and Yoga lessons (DON’T ignore this, we will return to this).
The FBI publicly admonished her but declined to press charges. Fair enough that’s at their discretion.
It comes out that she also used software (BleachBit which sounds like rhetorical overkill for avoiding the disclosure of yoga emails) for the deletion of thousands of emails, which is an obstruction of justice charge tacked on as well. Yes, feel free to ignore that as well.
Finally it comes out that there were 30 emails related to Benghazi (which is not the Arabic word for Yoga) in the FBIs possession which were not initially turned over when requested, Lets get back to this.
When lying wasnt involved Incompetency was called upon:
Hillary Clinton told the FBI that her post concussion syndrome makes remembering briefings impossible. Apparently Cognitive function is no longer a requirement for High Office. Not important.
She lost or destroyed 13 mobile devices that contained Classified information. Unlike Grandma losing the TV Remote losing devices with Classified information usually involves locking down bases until these items are found. Forget about that.
I have friends who have worked federal law enforcement and I have known those who have been the target of federal criminal investigations.
Looking at the cat and mouse game between Hillary and the FBI you run the risk of believing that this is normal behavior, that the Feds actually tolerate this level of fraud or stupidity. Let me remove that thought from your head.
You don’t get to hide shit. You don’t get to delete shit. You Don’t get to lose shit. You don’t get to Forget shit. You don’t get to tell the Feds “Oh don’t worry about that, its not important it wont help your investigation.”
What actually happens when you behave like Hillary has acted looks something like this:
The FBI will angrily go to a nice person in a black robe and a gavel and politely request this broad, sweeping, vague, open ended parchment called a “warrant”. They come to your home and office and they grab everything that has a plug or a wire going into it. They grab your sons laptop that he uses for World of Warcraft and they commandeer your daughters ipad that she uses for duck face selfies. If they really want to be assholes they dump all the shit out of every cabinet,dresser and draw in your house/office including riffling through your underwear draw because you never can tell where that spare USB stick is.
This is what happens to people without Hillary Privilege when they moderately annoy federal officials. If she wasn’t a rich privileged white woman in matters concerning national security, but instead was, say, a black man slinging dime bags out of his house things would be different. There would be Ninja clad SWAT raids and battering rams and flashbangs and maybe a dead canine or two. No “Don’t go into that cabinet officers, that’s my personal stuff, not where I would keep the drugs if I, you know did those sorts of things.”
Now of course I don’t wish Harm on Mrs. Clinton. After all, she is a sick old lady which no good will come from her spending her few remaining days in a federal penitentiary, ironically gobbling up tax payer dollars for her continued sustenance. Let her remain free.
However a No-knock raid at 3:00 AM to make sure she isn’t hiding any other emails couldn’t hurt 😉
