FoxNews reported, in an interview with Judge Napolitano, that Trump is in legal jeopardy because of emails related to Donald Jr.’s setting up a meeting at Trump Tower to ostensibly obtain dirt of Hillary Clinton. (link: https://www.newsmax.com/politics/andrew-napolitano-trump-tower-meeting-robert-mueller/2018/02/01/id/840953/ ) Supposedly, White House communications director Hope Hicks wanted to prevent the release of those emails. According to the judge’s analysis, this is conspiracy to obstruct justice. How it pertains to Trump himself is beyond me, but if it is even slightly plausible, expect the MSM to run with it screaming.
Lets us make a comparison. Because someone on Trump’s team wanted to hide emails, that is viewed as prima facie conspiracy to obstruct (conspiracy because it involved more than one person). Now, where have we seen that before?
Hillary Clinton ignored the law and had created (she did not do it herself) a private server to conduct her official State Department correspondence. That, in itself is blatant conspiracy to perpetrate a fraud on the US government, whose Freedom of Information Act requires all public officials to use official channels (the State Department’s email system) and to preserve all their official correspondence. After an investigation was already underway, 33,000 emails on that server were deleted and deleted in a such a way as to make them unrecoverable from the local hard drive (setting aside the question of whether or not they were recoverable elsewhere – not that the FBI seemed very interested in making the effort). As well, numerous cell phones were destroyed with hammers – just the kind of things ordinary folks do for the sake of personal privacy.
Saint Comey, aided and abetted by the MSM perpetrated a massive deception by way of deflection from these obvious felonies. They all framed the issue in terms of “carelessness” with classified information. That, too was felonious, but much more easily excusable. And the spin saw to it that that was all anyone talked about. Meanwhile, the blatant acts for which regular men and women go directly to jail – without passing “Go,” on a regular basis were simply ignored! Such cases for ordinary defendants rarely ever go to trial. They are pled out, since defense lawyers know their clients don’t stand a chance.
What Hillary did was uncontrovertibly conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to obstruct justice. For anyone else, many or all the emails would have been recovered from other servers after a painstaking forensic investigation. Anyone else would have faced a withering interview with the FBI under oath. For anyone else, the FBI would not have participated in the clever misdirection – away from blatant felonies and toward simple carelessness. Even that “carelessness” was an intentional misdirection away from the “gross negligence” it actually represented. We now know that Comey’s original exoneration statement, written months before Hillary was even interviewed, was redacted since it initially used the term “gross negligence” – the legal standard for requisite mens rea.
Not only have we become a nation of (wo)men and not of laws. It redounds to the benefit of the political party immune to shame, since the MSM never holds them to any principle except expediency. A Democrat’s multiple felonies are covered up by the FBI director. Meanwhile a Republican who merely inhabited the same building as his son working for his campaign (and who may have actually done not a thing wrong), is prima facie guilty of conspiracy to obstruct justice.
All this, in plain view, perpetrated by federal law enforcement at the highest levels. Were there any actual journalism happening in the MSM – ‘investigative reporting” (à la Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes) is reserved exclusively for Republicans and is indistinguishable from character assassination. This exemplifies the faking of news at its most refined practice.
