Former Judge: A Lot of Unanswered Questions Remain in Hillary Clinton Case

What if the folks who run the Department of Political Justice recently were told that the republic would suffer if Hillary Clinton were indicted for espionage because Donald Trump might succeed Barack Obama in the presidency? What if espionage is the failure to safeguard state secrets and the evidence that Mrs. Clinton failed to safeguard them is unambiguous and overwhelming?

What if President Obama never really liked his former rival whom he appointed as his secretary of state? What if he had no real interest in seeing her succeed him because he and his wife simply could never trust her?

What if, when Mrs. Clinton suggested to the president that the United States wage a secret, undeclared war against Libya, the president went along with it as a no-lose proposition? What if he assumed that if her secret war succeeded he’d get the credit, and if her secret war failed she would get the blame?

What if the means of fighting the secret war consisted of employing intelligence assets rather than the U.S. military? What if Mrs. Clinton concocted that idea because the use of the military requires a public reporting to the entire Congress but the use of intelligence assets requires only a secret reporting to a dozen members of Congress?

What if Mrs. Clinton expanded her war by permitting American and foreign arms dealers to bypass the NATO arms embargo on Libya by selling heavy-duty, military-grade arms directly to militias in Libya? What if this was Mrs. Clinton’s dream scenario — an apparent civil war in Libya in which the victorious side was secretly armed by the United States, with democracy brought to the country and Mrs. Clinton the architect of it all?

New York Mayor: Justice Department Not Dragging Feet on Eric Garner Probe

Despite concerns about the pace of the investigation into the death of Eric Garner, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio dismissed claims that the Justice Department is dragging its feet.

The mayor said he was notified by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch that the case was a top priority, but it also is complicated and requires meticulously obtained evidence, CBS reports. 

“No one is dragging their feet and we have to make sure the resolution afterwards is fair and just,” de Blasio said.

Garner died two years ago after police tried to arrest him for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes. Garner told officers he couldn’t breathe after he appeared to be placed in a chokehold by a cop.

“The real issue in preventing these tragedies is working to make sure they don’t happen again in the future,” de Blasio said.

Hillary Clinton likely dodged prosecution, but details of the investigation reveal the Democratic presidential candidate often lied about her email practices.

Clinton, for example, claimed she turned over all of her work-related messages, but that is not true. She also said she never used her private email server to send classified information. Again, not true.

Clinton also claimed she set up her private email system so she wouldn’t have to use other devices. According to the FBI, Clinton used many devices to send and receive emails.

FBI Director James Comey announced Tuesday that he does not plan to recommend criminal charges against Clinton.

Now Clinton must show voters that she can be trusted.

On Wednesday, Louisiana Rep. Cedric Richmond wants federal investigators to solves some of the “unanswered questions” in the case.

“There are a number of unanswered questions surrounding Mr. Sterling’s death, including questions about the initial calls for police presence, the level of force used by officers, the verbal and physical altercation, and the response of the officers after he was shot,” Richmond said Wednesday in a statement, KXLF.com reports. http://www.kxlf.com/story/32381137/louisiana-lawmaker-calls-on-justice-department-to-investigate-police-shooting-death

Attorney General Loretta Lynch is expected to announce today that she will accept the recommendation of prosecutors and the FBI who are investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, a Justice Department official told the New York Times. 

Lynch plans to discuss her handling of the case this morning in Aspen, Colorado.

By accepting whatever recommendation is handled down, she is removing herself as a political appointee who could overrule investigators.

The announcement comes after a private meeting between Lynch and President Bill Clinton this week.

Republicans claimed that the meeting undermined the independence of the investigation.
