Apparently one can become Director of the FBI without knowing what constitutes conspiracy, treason, let alone a criminal, punishable act. “Intent” doesn’t magically void our laws or pardon one from accountability, nor does it vindicate a corrupt politician seeking to occupy the pinnacle of the very constitutional republic she mocks with her contempt for its judicial integrity and the safety of all American citizens. When you illegally use a private server and “intentionally” delete 30,000 emails, some containing highly sensitive and classified information, punishing the offender accordingly is like delineating between murder or manslaughter; either way a crime was committed, trust was forsaken, and the guilty must be punished equitably…without undue scorn or political favor. Every day, ordinary citizens go to jail for unpaid parking tickets while our government, the same one that can’t balance its checkbook but religiously prints more money to camouflage a dying economy, is a staggering 20 trillion in debt. Hypocrisy and collusion? Always in the land of make-believe where power and politics can buy you a “Get Out of Jail, Free Card” and a one-way ticket to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue under the glittering misdirectional lights of “Trump is a Racist”. And to think Nixon was universally admonished and forced to resign for erasing 18 minutes of a taped conversation concerning a crime he didn’t actually commit. So much for the Age of Aquarius when your standards only apply to the Game of Thrones.
If art imitates life, or political theater, Mrs. Hillary Clinton wasn’t really dismissed for unethical behavior by a legal committee investigating Watergate – i.e., for lying without regard for one’s rights, welfare or reputation – she was promoted to Pravda street performer for refusing to tell which shell was holding the truth hostage. Yes, the very same rules of secrecy, classification, that keep Ed Snowden in perpetual “criminal” exile for breaching protocol in the name of transparency…truth, justice & the American way…somehow simultaneously exonerate a career con-artist to run for and inexplicably qualify for President of the United States. Now you tell me who’s actually fighting for “you”, America, rather than for her unprosecutable line of pantsuits?
