There is a sad truth that all Americans have been constantly reminded of over the last few years.
Our justice system is not always fair.
I don’t mean in a way that is based on racial differences (though that case can be made), or in a way that judges some obviously trite crimes more harshly than their more serious counterparts (though that case can also be made). I mean that in a very basic and impractical way, there is a certain class of people that simply get to live as if they are above the law.
Who are these fortunate few? Why, the political and cultural elite, of course.
The greatest proof of this ugly imbalance in our justice system is the woman who would be President, Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton (and the other members of her family and her staff) has been implicated in too many crimes to count, and yet she has never been truly investigated for these wrongdoings. In fact, there is even real, hard evidence for some of her bad acts… but no one seems to care to connect them together. Actually, Peter Schweizer, in his recent book Clinton Cash did connect the dots… and the leftwing media decided to ignore him (or worse to attack him).
It’s about this sad state of affairs that former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, was speaking when he appeared on Fox News over the weekend and said something that is as true as it is sad.
“I mean, I think you probably have the president [Obama] involved. You have the Attorney General Loretta Lynch who you’ll remember met in secret with Bill Clinton the week they were interviewing Hillary. You now have evidence that Comey, the director of the FBI at the time was writing the statement exonerating Hillary two months before the interview. I mean let’s go down this list and then on both the protect Hillary side and the get Trump side, it is the most extraordinary example of the deep state totally abusing the rule of law.
There are a lot of different players now engaged in this and they seem to be pretty consistently lining up, except of course for Adam Schiff and the Democrats who are in the see no evil, report no evil, just hide with evil for the weekend kind of group.
Let me just point out. To show you how sick the elite media is, they report all that as though it’s something bad about Trump. In any reasonable system of law, Secretary Clinton would already be in jail. All of her senior aides would be in jail.”
