Where's the Indictment?
Blu is at the Table
Good Morning , Breakfastpopperrs. Today is Monday, May 2, 2016. We have a new friend at the breakfast table. Her name is Blu and she has asked for the pleasure of your company this morning. Blu will be preparing French toast topped with blueberries. I will be preparing enough Irish coffees to keep us all happy despite the story Blu has to tell. We hope to see you soon.
Thank you so much for coming to the breakfast table. I was hoping you could help me understand why the wheels of justice have ground to an agonizing halt. Hillary Clinton has been under investigation for her role in the Benghazi terror attack and for her misuse of highly classified materials. There is no question that she was improperly using personal e-mails along with a private server to conduct official State Department business. She has referred to her serious transgression as a "poor choice". She has countered accusations about putting us all in a vulnerable position, by stating that none of her e-mails were classified at the time she sent them. She smirks and laughs at the suggestion that she may face serious charges and possible jail time. She is, after all, Queen Hillary and the rules that apply to others simply do not apply to her. No one, not even Hillary, is above the law.
Although Clinton pooh-poohs the seriousness of her actions, I wonder how she can explain away the fact that at least one of her e-mails told the terrorists exactly how to find Amb. Chris Stevens. In particular, the e-mail stated that Amb. Stevens wanted to leave Benghazi and had begun to prepare for his exit. Another unsecured e-mail detailed his travel plans and his meeting schedule. If the terrorists were able to hack into Hillary's unsecured server, the e-mails made their mission easy. Although Clinton laughs these suggestions away, rest assured, the families of those who died in the terror attack are not laughing. For that matter, neither am I.
Just Another Lie
There were rules in place that governed the management of government records. According to Howard J. Krongard, the agency's inspector general from 2005 to 2008, Clinton was never assigned and never used a state.gov e-mail address like all Secretary's of State that came before her. It is impossible for the State Department to assert that they were not aware of her private e-mail and server. They didn't set one up, so did they think she was using tom-toms to do state business? The State Department did not have an inspector general overseeing state business for the entire time Clinton served as Secretary of State. This fact alone is so bizarre and unprecedented that it is difficult to imagine it wasn't deliberate. Clinton skirted the rules and has been lying about it since it was discovered.
The Sad Truth
According to Krongard, there will never be an indictment. Although there is enough evidence to fit Clinton for an orange jumpsuit, the FBI will have to convince the Justice Department to act. There are four Democrat women who will decide whether or not to pursue an indictment. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Assistant Attorney General Leslie Caldwell, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett will make the call. It seems clear that Clinton wins and we all lose. When FBI director Comey and his agents recommend a Clinton indictment, which they are likely to do, the DOJ can take as long as it wants to review the material against her. Should it become clear that the DOJ will drag its feet or ignore the charges, it has been predicted that Comey and other high level FBI officials will resign in protest. In the end if justice is not served, it will be abundantly clear that the deck is stacked and that justice is just a seven letter word.
Don't clip my blue wings
Don't tie me down
I have places to go
I have people to see
Above all else
I just wanna be free!
