Please pardon the expression, but I can’t think of a more appropriate response to that statement other than … BULLSHIT.
Yes, Hillary did suffer an ignominious defeat at the hand of Donald Trump. A man, who the democrats believed, had zero chance of beating her. Her emotional pain and suffering because she lost an election, is a fitting end to her political career and is the result of overconfidence and a poorly executed campaign.
Thus, her campaign’s overconfidence coupled with the public’s dislike of her contributed to her (second) presidential election defeat in as many attempts.
My point is that Hillary and her sycophants dug that campaign hole and when Trump appeared to be closing the gap, they couldn’t buy political advertising fast enough to dig their way out. It was, as George Bush so eloquently put it, crummy campaign strategery.
But that’s the election. She came, she saw, she lost. Period – end of story.
There isn’t any logical link between Hillary’s numerous criminal misdeeds and her losing the election – they are two entirely separate issues.
Her supporters say, “c’mon, she’s suffered enough, let’s just move on.” Of course, that’s what they want. They don’t want to see the titular head of their party led away in shackles or being issued her orange jumpsuit. The optics of those actions would reflect badly on the democrat party.
But Hillary has been accused of a number of serious felonies and there hasn’t been a satisfactory conclusion to any of them – either she’s guilty or she’s innocent. She hasn’t yet been thoroughly investigated and had her day in court. And more importantly, letting her off without any final adjudication isn’t the way our laws are supposed to work.
No one, not even Hillary Clinton, is supposed to be above the law. Any ordinary American citizen would be indicted and stand trial for similar acts, there can be NO justification to treat her differently – period.
If Barack Obama doesn’t pardon her, I believe that President-elect Trump (and later, President Trump) should take the position of instructing the Attorney General, the Department of Justice and the FBI to continue any ongoing investigations and treat her EXACTLY like any other citizen, no better, no worse. And then he should recuse himself of any actions relating to her guilt of innocence. And there should be no pardon either. Simply allow our justice system to work the way it’s supposed to work.
Lady Justice is depicted wearing a blindfold. The blindfold represents objectivity, in that justice is or should be meted out objectively, without fear or favor, regardless of money, wealth, fame, power, or identity; blind justice and impartiality.
Isn’t that the way our justice system is supposed to work?
