Apparently some in the FBI are not very happy with the way the Clinton case was handled. And some agents had to sign unorthodox nondisclosure agreements.
I think there are a lot of people out there who would like to, and likely will mount a “Hillary defense.”
As we have said in the past a key part of a cronyist system is a tiered system of “justice.” There are rules for the Great Washington Court, there are rules for their underlings (whose work may impact their masters), and there are rules for the rest of us. This a massive oversimplification of course.
This is what a former federal prosecutor has to say on FBI Director Comey’s statement on the Clinton email situation from earlier today.
Some people are acting like it’s some big coup that the Bushes (who were basically humiliated in the primaries) are attacking Trump. Folks, of course they are attacking Trump. They got spanked. Lindsey Graham is attacking Trump. Mitt Romney is attacking Trump. The Bushite neocons are on the record as saying they may defect to Hillary because Trump isn’t sufficiently hawkish for them. And you will notice that these washed up Republicans aren’t running out and endorsing the small government candidate,
That was probably a fun lunch. Ah, to be a big shot in Antigua lunching over Caribbean lobster tails and margaritas.
I’ll say this for Bernie, he has added much value to this race. He has highlighted the cronyism deep within the Democratic Party. He has suffered what appears to be just blatant corruption during the primaries. And at least one does not want to take a shower after listening to him speak.
His economic ideas are absurd and frankly dangerous. His perception of “justice” is fundamentally warped. But man, the guy is refreshing and he has challenged the coronation.
A key part of cronyism is the the idea that the connected, the political class, gets to play by different rules than the rest of us. The idea that wealth and status within the Washington “court” gives some a free ride. That these are the people who wish to “lead” the American people is particularly challenging to those of us who are aware of this tiered system of justice.
Here’s the full list in case you haven’t seen it. This doesn’t even include her husband.
Dolla dolla bill ya’ll.
ACC is a completely non-partisan organization. We do not support/endorse or oppose any candidate for office. We believe that both major parties are heavily influenced by special interests and will report on crony capitalism wherever and whenever we see it.
Well, let’s hope justice (whatever it is one way or the other) is done in the Commonwealth of Virginia. My sweet home. Did we mention that Terry McAuliffe is the former head of the Democratic National Committee and a close friend of the Clintons? Did we mention that the Governor has a long history of questionable dealings to say the least, including cashing in big just before one of the biggest bankruptcies in corporate history? Did we mention that McAuliffe is originally from Syracuse,
Is there no one who had their phone on during any of these $250,000 speeches? Perhaps that’s the way to get any transcripts.
“See this is how we do this…”
(From Orb Magazine)
With FBI Director James Comey’s statement this week that the massive investigation of possible criminality by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could linger into the fall, some of her political advisers have become convinced that the best option for her would be to shut it down now, which could be accomplished ifPresident Obama would grant a preemptive pardon for any crimes she may have committed.
The hawks are trying to find a nest.
We don’t need a “hawkish” foreign policy however. We need an “owlish” foreign policy. Wise and stayed but with the sharpest talons in the forest.
