Justice or Something Else
Tevya is at the Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, April 4, 2016. Our dear friend, Wasp Tevya, is at the breakfast table with me this morning. Tevya has been following this slow and painful investigation into Hillary Clinton and her disregard for national security. Tevya would like to share some of her thoughts with all of us. Won't you join us for potato pancakes and applesauce accompanied by Irish Coffee. We hope to see you soon.
Friends in High Places
Thank you so much for joining me this morning. I am worried bout Attorney General Loretta Lynch and her ability and desire to pursue charges against Hillary Clinton. Lynch was a litigation partner for eight years at a firm in Washington that served the needs of the Clintons. Uh-Oh! There is definitely trouble in paradise. The firm that Lynch was a part of, Hogan & Watson, filed a patent trademark for the company that created the email encryption system that was used in Clinton's private server. Uh-Oh! It would seem correct for Lynch to call for a special counsel to deal with Clinton's case, because she was and is, literally too close to the Clintons for comfort.
Although Clinton has stated over and over again that she never sent classified material on her private server, that doesn't seem to be the case at all. The firm that developed the software gave unrestricted access to anyone wishing to read the emails. Anyone at the company could have read and sent these emails to anyone, anywhere. Does that sound safe to you? There is no way in the world that Clinton was unaware of the danger of her actions. Her staff knew it, as well, and the bottom line is that they all thought the rules didn't apply to them.
Breakfastpop's father was an attorney. He was brilliant, respected, moral and truthful. One morning, her Dad was sitting alone in a room talking into a tape recorder. He sounded sad, thoughtful and filled with regret about a justice system so flawed that justice was truly elusive. He spoke softly and reflected about the state of the legal system in the nation. His pronouncement was that there truly was no such thing as justice, rather it all depended upon who you knew. His words were uttered more than 50 years ago, and they still hold true to this day. Hillary Clinton knows many people in high places who want to protect her at all costs. This case has dragged on for far too long. She is running for president and she, the Democratic Party and her supporters do not seem the least bit concerned about her behavior. In a perfect world, this case would have been decided already. In a perfect world, she would be packing a small bag and heading to jail. In a perfect world, Lynch would recuse herself and this case would be decided by independent counsel. In this world, Clinton may get a pass no matter what the FBI finds.
Despite the fact that the FBI is digging away at these emails, Clinton may never have to pay for her wanton recklessness. If the Justice Department drags their feet, she may just walk her way into the White House, and the voters will never see the conviction at the end of the tunnel. Clinton chooses her words very carefully when asked about this scandal. She is innocent. She may have been foolish, but she never compromised the security of our nation. Her demeanor speaks volumes. She doesn't expect a damn thing to come of all these months of investigation. Any normal person would be very worried about their future, but Clinton is different. She and her husband have a way of walking away from trouble. They have come to expect that, and thus far they are doing just that. If Clinton walks away because Lynch is stalling, this nation will have much to be ashamed of. Justice will definitely be seen as a concept to be reserved for a precious few. The rest of us will have to deal with a system that picks and chooses who pays and who doesn't. Let's hope against hope that justice prevails. What's the harm in that?
Dear God, you've made so many liars
It's a shame to be a liar
Could we cut back on a few?
