Rule Of Law
I'm disappointed at Roger Simon over at PJ Media for his surrender to the forces of Trumpism and I now ignore anything he has to say regarding the GOP nomination process. However, he has written an excellent article detailing the significance of THE most important issue of the general election campaign, bar none : How will the FBI and the Justice Department (and what we're actually talking about here is the White House) deal with the seemingly overwhelming evidence of Hillary Clinton's national security violations and her influence peddling via the corrupt Clinton Foundation. The judicial treatment of Clinton's alleged crimes will determine whether or not the U.S. has devolved into a banana republic.
Bill Clinton was impeached for two causes -- perjury and obstruction of justice. But the charges concerned a matter of personal conduct and were not deemed serious enough for Clinton to be removed from office, although he was disbarred by the state of Arkansas.
Richard Nixon resigned from the presidency before almost certain impeachment over his coverup of the Watergate break-in, a farcically useless burglary of Democratic headquarters in an election that the Republicans were already winning by a landslide.
Neither of these misdeeds, bad as they were, even remotely approach the magnitude of crimes for which Hillary Clinton is said by many to have committed.
Read the entire piece here. It's important.
