Frank Aquila: Apparently, Hillary Clinton is above the law

Lady Justice is a lady blindfolded holding scales representing fairness and equality. However, there is no fairness and equality when it comes to the way ordinary people are treated and the way Hillary Clinton is treated.

When Hillary was questioned by the FBI in a criminal investigation, she did not give her testimony under oath as required of ordinary Americans. When Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with President Bill Clinton, the New York Post reported a secret deal was arranged to assure Lynch she would remain in her position as attorney general if Hillary is elected president. Ordinary Americans could not arrange such a bribe. FBI Director James Comey stated, “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” Translation: “She’s guilty but we won’t prosecute.”

Comey again: “To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences.” Translation: “If any of you little people ever did this, you would be in prison.” Hillary committed crimes that would have put any other person in prison. Hillary is above the law.
