PETITION URGING DONALD TRUMP, IF ELECTED PRESIDENT, TO APPOINT A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE HILLARY CLINTON FOR VIOLATIONS OF THE ESPIONAGE ACT – AND URGING CONGRESS TO HOLD HER IN CONTEMPT FOR DESTROYING OVER 30,000 EMAIL DOCUMENTS AFTER THEY WERE SUBPOENAED
Whereas, Donald Trump, during the second presidential debate on Oct. 9, said to Hillary Clinton, “If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there has never been so many lies, so much deception. There has never been anything like it, and we’re going to have a special prosecutor”;
Whereas, Trump added that not only are Americans “furious” over Clinton’s crimes, but the FBI as well, stating, “In my opinion, the people that have been long-time workers at the FBI are furious. There has never been anything like this, where … you get a subpoena, and after getting the subpoena you delete 33,000 emails and then you acid wash them or bleach them … So we’re going to get a special prosecutor and we’re going to look into it”;
Whereas, even the left-leaning PolitiFact website confirms 33,000 emails were indeed deleted from Hillary’s unsecure private server three weeks aftershe received a congressional subpoena demanding the production of her emails – an act that normally would result in being held in contempt of Congress;
Whereas, news reports confirm that “FBI agents are ready to revolt” over Director James Comey’s “cowardly” whitewash of Hillary Clinton’s long-term mishandling of classified information using an unauthorized private email server, with Dennis V. Hughes, former chief of the FBI’s computer investigations unit, saying, “The FBI has politicized itself and its reputation will suffer for a long time – I hold Director Comey responsible,” and retired FBI agent Michael M. Biasello adding, “Comey has singlehandedly ruined the reputation of the organization”;
Whereas, fully 56 percent of Americans, including many Democrats, say FBI Director James Comey should have recommended that Hillary Clinton be indicted over her intentional mishandling of classified emails while secretary of state, according to an ABC News/Washington Post survey;
Whereas, legal expert Judge Andrew Napolitano says, “the evidence of her guilt is overwhelming” and that “it was obviously a policy decision by the White House not to investigate her,” and moreover agrees that Trump, as president, “could have his own attorney general reopen the investigation and assign a new team of people to examine the same evidence” – that is, Trump could have the Justice Department reopen the closed investigation into Clinton’s private email server, even without appointing a special prosecutor;
Whereas, when during the second debate Hillary Clinton’s said it was “awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” Trump quipped, “… because you’d be in jail”;
Whereas, in response, the left has hysterically complained that “threatening to jail a political opponent is anti-democratic and anti-American,” with leftwing Harvard law professor Lawrence Tribe (who in 2008 was a judicial adviser to the Obama presidential campaign) claiming, “some of the political leaders who’ve jailed their political opponents have been Hugo Chávez, Recep Erdoğan, Robert Mugabe, Manuel Noriega, Augusto Pinochet and, of course, Vladimir Putin”;
Whereas, Trump obviously did not threaten to investigate Clinton because she is a political opponent, but because she has blatantly violated U.S. espionage laws, mishandled top-secret information, destroyed government files and obstructed justice – criminal misconduct that has nothing to do with being a political adversary of Trump’s;
Whereas, it is, in reality, Democrats, not Republicans, who routinely target political adversaries for prison – such as the Obama administration’s criminal prosecution of high-profile Obama critic Dinesh D’Souza (for which the Justice Department demanded a severe jail sentence, which the judge declined to impose) for a campaign-finance violation of the petty sort that the DOJ routinely allows to be settled by a civil fine; also Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, producer of the anti-Muslim video the Obama administration falsely and scandalously blamed for the Benghazi massacre, was subjected to a scapegoat prosecution and imprisonment (under the guise of a supervised-release violation) intended to bolster Obama and Clinton’s shameful “blame the video” narrative;
Whereas, Barack Obama, when running for president in 2008, promised an investigation of the Bush administration’s waterboarding (which Obama and the left insist on referring to as “torture”) of a total of three terrorists, including 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. As Obama said in April 2008: “What I would want to do is to have my Justice Department and my attorney general immediately review the information that’s already there and to find out are there inquiries that need to be pursued. … If crimes have been committed, they should be investigated”;
Whereas, many Americans have been convicted and imprisoned for violations of the same federal statutes Hillary Clinton has far more egregiously violated – or as Trump put it during the second debate, many people’s “lives have been destroyed for doing one-fifth of what you have done. And it’s a disgrace, and honestly, you ought to be ashamed of yourself”;
Whereas, despite the ludicrously biased behavior of the establishment news media on behalf of Clinton’s candidacy, tens of millions of honest, hardworking, law-abiding, patriotic Americans – or as Hillary Clinton describes them, “deplorables” – know full well that Bill and Hillary Clinton have a long, sordid history of crimes and corruption, for which they have escaped consequence and prosecution decade after decade – and they are, as Trump rightly said, “furious” over it:
SIGN THE PETITION
Therefore, we hereby add our names to this petition calling on Congress to hold Hillary Clinton in contempt of Congress for purposely destroying evidence three weeks after it was subpoenaed, and we likewise encourage Donald J. Trump, if he is elected president, to appoint a special prosecutor to conduct a complete and fair investigation – one not compromised by craven political loyalties – into Hillary Clinton’s egregious abuse of America’s state secrets.
One of America’s core principles, first expressed by President John Adams, is that ours is “a government of laws, and not of men.” In plain language, America is not a monarchy and no one is above the law – not even the Clintons. Holding Hillary Clinton legally accountable, at long last, for at least some of her many criminal misdeeds by applying the same legal standard to them as to any other citizen would go a long way toward restoring citizens’ flagging faith in America as a just, moral and great nation.
