Roger L. Simon writes,
Whatever you think of Donald Trump, the election of Hillary Clinton will be a moral and legal catastrophe unprecedented in the history of our country from which it may never recover. Sound excessive? Think what you wish, but the fact of the matter is the USA will have an unindicted criminal as president and no one knows what the consequences will be.
With each passing day it becomes clearer the investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal was such a sham that it did far more than merely tarnish the reputations of the FBI and the Department of Justice. It distorted our legal system beyond recognition.
The FBI and Justice Department have apparently been used by one political party to keep the other out of power by covert manipulation of our system. That means these institutions have been turned on their heads into instruments of state oppression extraordinarily close to those used by totalitarian regimes.
…With tens of thousands of emails deliberately “bleached,” many concerning the national security of our country, this outrage (scandal is far too weak a word) makes Watergate and its 14-minute tape erasure seem like a minor kerfuffle. And yet most of the media—notably and ironically the Washington Post, which made its reputation exposing Nixon—barely lift an investigative finger. If they were serious about the role of the Fourth Estate, EmailGate would be the biggest story they ever covered. It would be all hands on deck.
But of course it isn't, because, like the FBI and the DOJ, most of the supposed wise men and women of our media have decreed that it not be. They believe that continued Democratic Party rule under Hillary Clinton is for the “better good” and therefore even the outright sabotage of our legal system can be countenanced, even surreptitiously applauded, if necessary for the cause.
