Nobody Really Disagrees With This, Right?

Former New York City Mayor and U.S. Attorney Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday he doesn't think there is any way Hillary Clinton should be able to avoid facing an indictment for the "secretive and highly classified" government information found on the private email server she used while secretary of state.

"[There are] 13 violations of federal law that she arguably committed," Giuliani [said]... "They treated it — in the case of Petraeus — as a major crime, and his actions are a hundredth of hers," said Giuliani. "She misrepresented about it. She's lied about it. She said she had no top secret material. It's absurd."

And as Clinton "destroyed 34,000 emails," Giuliani said that he would have argued, as a prosecutor, "that's evidence of a guilty knowledge . . . the destruction is evidence of guilty knowledge, evidentiary principle that you can use against someone when they're in a situation where who knows what's on those 34,000 e-mails."
If you have been following the story at all, surely you can't dispute any of that. Her survival as a viable political candidate depends on the fact that so few really believe that our system of law can work to hold her to account. If she rides that long enough to get elected, it'll be another four years of Attorneys General who won't enforce the law on her, or her allies.

What would that do to the country? Can anyone be so unpatriotic as to consider electing her given that?

Jeebus, I'm going to sound like Ymar, but it isn't a matter of patriotism. It's a matter of patronage, virtue signalling, gender bias, liberal bias, and probably a couple of more things I'm missing.

By in large, the current loyal Democrat party voters don't care about the things you care about. They are in a different world.

You forgot social justice (which seems to mean destroying America for being the worst thing ever to happen to the world).

I'm already seeing lots of Facebook outrage that the likely Republican nominee has Sarah Palin's endorsement. I must say, though, that although I'm still seeing adoring Obama posts (pictures of him looking saintly and long-suffering, with captions about how he saved the universe in the face of unprecedented yada yada), I'm really not seeing any direct praise of either Clinton or Sanders. Apparently they'd rather talk about Trump and Palin. It's going to be SUCH a weird election.

Sure they could.

Sure they could.

Don't forget Marion Barry, another Democrat.

People thought they could get the IRS in something too. They, as usual, underestimate the power of the Leftist alliance, aka DC's bureaucracy.

Call it... the patronage system, under the old aristocratic model.

To me, there was an above 80% chance that the IRS would skate. Maybe it's above 95% now, but hey, until people die, there's always that 1%. Or maybe the Three Percent.
