Special Prosecutor Should Investigate Sec. Clinton

As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton used an unsecure private server to send and receive work-related emails, some of which were Top Secret. Upon being told to turn over her emails to the State Department, she deleted 31,830 of them and wiped the private server using BleachBit.

According to Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina), “When you are using BleachBit, it is something you really do not want the world to see.”

So, what was Hillary hiding? 

We will never know, especially considering that James Comey and Loretta Lynch politicized the FBI and DOJ investigations into the matter. 

In the case of Comey, he pranced in front of the TVs on July 5, 2016 and declared that while Hillary was “extremely careless,” he did not recommend charges against her. Aside from being a massive breach of protocol, for Comey is an investigator and not a prosecutor, his announcement was drafted months before the investigation had concluded. 

According to recent reports, Comey had circulated a memo declaring the conclusion of the investigation before he met with 17 key witnesses in the case and interviewed Clinton herself. This shows that his probe was a sham intended to make the American people think that the rule of law actually mattered to the Obama Administration, while not hurting Hillary’s presidential chances.

As for former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, she met with Bill Clinton on a plane tarmac before the Justice Department had closed their probe of his wife. As best, this shows that Lynch was close with the Clintons. At worst, it shows that Bill colluded with Lynch to obstruct justice, which is ironically the claim leveled by liberals against President Trump. Additionally, the Obama DOJ refused to investigate the Clinton Foundation (even at the recommendation of FBI agents).

Aside from having deleted 31,830 emails with the help of BleachBit to evade a federal investigation, Hillary Clinton committed perjury by lying to Congress in her October 22, 2015 testimony. She stated that she had not sent or received classified materials on her private server, but this assertion turned out to be a big lie.

Considering all of these crimes – sending and receiving classified emails, obstruction of justice, and perjury – committed by Hillary Clinton, it comes as a big surprise to many Trump voters that there is not a DOJ-appointed special prosecutor investigating the case. Heck, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has advocated for the rule of law for his entire political career, a fundamental that the Obama Administration cronies spat on when they gave Clinton nothing but a slap on the wrist.

Trump made a public show out of his dismay at the state of the Clinton prosecution in July 2017, demanding that Sessions appoint a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of the former secretary of State’s crimes.

It is my belief that the Attorney General should accept the wishes of Trump and appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton. While the chants of "Lock Her Up" may have been premature, there needs to be a true investigation to determine whether she is guilty of perjury, obstruction of justice, and gross negligence when it came to handling classified information. From there, there can be further investigations into the Foundation, the uranium sale, and her collusion with Ukraine as well. Additionally, we cannot forget a probe into John Podesta's connections with the Kremlin.

Heck, if we want to hold Clinton to the standard that Trump is held to, we should let a special prosecutor look at all her private documents and pick her offense.
