Incredibly, immunity deals between the FBI and the Department of Justice on the one hand, and former Clinton chief-of-staff Cheryl Mills and ex-campaign staffer Heather Samuelson on the other, require the FBI to destroy the latter’s laptop computers after reviewing them. Moreover, sources recently told Fox News that a ‘side arrangement,’ of which there were several, limited any search to no later than January 31st, 2015. This precludes investigators from reviewing any documents for the period after the email server became public, thereby preventing them from discovering any potential evidence of obstruction of justice.
This should be considered obstruction of justice in and of itself. Richard Nixon must be rolling over in his grave. Who is going to investigate the FBI and Obama’s Injustice Department? Why are they working together- and with Democratic operatives- to stymie the near certain discovery of criminal behavior on the part of members of that party? And why were the FBI and DOJ voluntarily negotiating ‘side deals’ when the laptops could have been easily obtained without condition via subpoena? Even Judiciary Committee aides admitted they were stunned by the agreement(s), and stated that Mills and Samuelson already had immunity from the consequences of whatever might be on the laptop.
They also emphasized that the destruction of the laptops means that the computers could not be used as evidence in any future legal proceedings, if new information or circumstances arise. Coincidentally, the side deals were agreed upon less than a month prior to FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that his agency would recommend that no charges be brought against Hillary Clinton or her staff.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., expressed similar incredulity in a letter he sent to Attorney General Loretta Lynch. “Doesn’t the willingness of Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson to have their laptops destroyed by the FBI contradict their claim that the laptops could have been withheld because they contained non-relevant, privileged information? If so, doesn’t that undermine the claim that the side agreements were necessary?” Goodlatte queried.
That’ll be quite enough sanity, Bob.
Sadly, it is abundantly clear that obvious shams and scams trump logic and reason among our political and media elites these days. Forty-some years later, we’re still well aware of the Cold War era ‘Watergate Scandal,’ a comparatively mild, shallow and inept attempt by certain individuals to gain inside information on the opposition party. Does anyone seriously believe that, forty years hence, the collusion between massive governmental institutions and the Clinton Democratic Machine- to suppress information that would harm them but help the American people and the democratic process- will be freely talked about and taught in schools? That’s laughable. Why? In large part because American mainstream media- Big Media- has literally become an extension of the progressive movement. Any substantive differences between MSNBC, PBS, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, the New York Times, etc., etc., and Pravda and Tass are rapidly dissolving.
Somebody once said that, “power corrupts…and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
The United States of America was founded with just that truism in mind. We are in the trouble we are in now because we are aloof to that fact. The Founders would never have let things go this far.
It is time for a Second American Revolution.
