MARK POPE: Lady Justice has lost her blindfold [OPINION]
Lady Justice has lost her blindfold
Justice is Blind in America . . . or so they say. Bah, humbug. Lady Justice has had her blindfold totally removed, and she is focused on injustice because of a cabal of dishonest players in our nation’s capital. Those serving at the highest level at the FBI are corrupt. Robert Mueller is suspect. Rod Rosenstein is suspect. The focus of the investigation into collusion between Donald Trump, along with his campaign operatives, and Russia is an absolute sham. The evidence is in Hillary Clinton, and her campaign operatives, are the guilty parties in colluding with Russia and violating U.S. laws before and during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The most frustrating and disheartening aspect of the injustice occurring in Washington is the pitiful excuses spewed regularly by the liberal apologists for Hillary Clinton and the democrat party. Clinton and her accomplices seem immune from any scrutiny and ultimately any prosecution. Mrs. Clinton is a criminal. She was grossly negligent in using an unsecured email server when she was Secretary of State – she imperiled national security. She destroyed tens of thousands of emails with bleach, a hammer, and other means – tactics common to criminal thugs trying to escape culpability for various crimes. Clinton lied to the FBI, as did Huma Abidin, the vice-chair of Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. Neither Clinton nor Abidin was under oath when they lied to the FBI. The FBI did nothing because the interviews were a farce. From the get-go, it was rigged in corrupt D.C. that Clinton would not be prosecuted for criminal negligence, lying to the FBI, destroying evidence (emails), and colluding with Russian operatives – albeit indirectly – to compose and release the bogus “Russian Dossier” which was the basis for a FISA warrant being issued to surveil candidate-Trump and his operatives during and after the presidential campaign.
The Clinton camp hired Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Donald Trump. Fusion GPS then hired Christopher Steele – a former British spy, who is a “foreign national” – to collude with operatives at the Kremlin to fabricate salacious and unsubstantiated claims about Trump. Steele did his job in colluding with Russians, then authoring the bogus “Russian Dossier” on Trump. The Clinton camp then hired a law firm to pay Fusion GPS – a ploy to camouflage paying a “foreign national,” which violates campaign finance law. Millions of dollars were paid out, yet nobody knew anything. Then the bogus dossier was brought to the FBI, which served as the basis for a judge issuing a FISA warrant to surveil Trump and his operatives.
Then there is the recent evidence of Peter Strzok, and his concubine, Lisa Page. Strzok served as Director of the Counterintelligence Division of the FBI. He changed the wording of the statement written by FBI Director James Comey about Clinton. Comey originally wrote that Clinton’s handling of emails on an unsecured server – not to mention her destroying classified email evidence – was “grossly negligent,” which is language in the Espionage Act that constitutes a crime under U.S. law. Strzok changed Comey’s “grossly negligent” into “extremely careless,” which does not constitute a crime by Clinton under the Espionage Act. Remember recently when we were told that 50,000 texts between Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer, and Director Strzok were lost and unrecoverable. Well, once again the liberals lied to us. The texts have been recovered.
A couple of the more profound texts between Strzok and his mistress, Page, are worthy of mention. First, before Comey made his public statement that ‘no reasonable prosecutor would take on the Clinton espionage case because Clinton was only extremely careless,’ Strzok and Page texted this: Clinton might become president, so we better back off, so as not to anger the potential president-to-be. Second, two days after Mueller was appointed a special counsel to investigate Trump-Russia, Page texted to Strzok about the investigation: you and I both know the odds are nothing. There’s no big there, there. Strzok texted back one word: agreed.
Back on June 2, 1956, the Soviet government announced it was abolishing the “Justice Ministry” because of flagrant injustices committed by Joseph Stalin with his brutal, dishonest brand of INJUSTICE. Similar profound changes need to happen in the U.S. Justice must be impartially and fairly served by treating all persons and violators of the law the same. The dishonesty and injustice have to stop. Maybe then the American peoples’ faith in their government will be restored.
