Opinion by George McClellan:
So, once again Hillary is off the hook. I want to say I understand the reasoning expressed by the FBI Director, on declining to recommend prosecution of Hillary Clinton’s criminal malfeasance as Secretary of State, but that’s cutting a thin slice of believability. Something isn’t computing in my mind here. A lack of “intent” on Hillary’s part, doesn’t negate the seriousness of the crime as written in the law. Even a misdemeanor charge for willfulness would have satisfied.
Hillary’s actions were demonstrably stupid and dangerous but, being stupid is usually not a prosecutable offense. But Hillary must now and forever wear the official mantle of a snooty, above the law scheming conniver, incompetent decision maker, liar and cheat. The FBI has lat least labeled her that!
Hillary’s escape from possible conviction for extreme carelessness in grossly mishandling America’s secrets leaves General Patarus dangling in the wind, alone. He admitted to a misdemeanor charge of no consequence leaving his reputation in tatters, his future clouded, his name sullied, while the slimy Clintons continue their march to America’s progressive destruction.
In my essay, Is the Fix In?, (01 July 16) I wrote: “prepare yourselves for the worst, Hillary will not be indited, face trial or go to prison. We are witness to highly scripted, and well executed plan to confuse everybody. It’s the art of corruption at its very, very best. Is the fix in? Of course it is!
I concluded that article by noting: “Barak Obama’s government is transparently fraudulent, but untouchable. How will they steal the election for Hillary? It appears it will be with anti-Trump Republican’s.
The talking heads are already dissecting the FBI Director’s remarks exculpating Hillary from criminal charges because of lack of intent. Conservatives are wondering what happened, while Progressive/Liberals (Democrats) are simply dismissing the whole exercise as a vast waste of tax-payer money because the FBI failed to find any criminal intent in Clinton’s self-serving actions. That one is fraught with land mines to deductive reasoning. I fear for Director Comey’s own carefully constructed reputation of fairness. That remains to be seen but I’ll also bet that right now, investigators are pouring over the Directors professional background in minute detail.
The FBI’s investigation was poised like a dagger at Hillary’s campaign. Obama’s government, already so completely invested in Clinton’s potential presidency, to protect Obama’s legacy, have moved heaven and earth to stop the process until either after the elections or, as we now see, a declining to proceed because the “facts” couldn’t prove intent.
This is what the law tells us: “(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. and, (b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.”
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (5 July 16)
