Ever since the second presidential debate, when Donald Trump told Hillary Clinton that as president he would “instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation,” Democrats and the big media have gone wild – accusing Trump of emulating the world’s most evil tyrants and dictators, from Hugo Chavez to Robert Mugabe to Vladimir Putin, despots who routinely imprison – if not shoot – their political opponents.
Trump, however, claims he wants to see Clinton investigated, not 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.
Is Trump right in calling for a fresh, independent investigation of Clinton’s “situation”?
How relevant is it that, as multiple news reports confirm, “FBI agents are ready to revolt” over Director James Comey’s “cowardly” whitewash of the bureau’s investigation? Or that even the left-leaning PolitiFact website confirms 33,000 emails were indeed deleted from Clinton’s unsecure private server three weeks after she received a congressional subpoena demanding the production of her emails – an act that normally would result in being held in contempt of Congress. Or that more than half of all Americans – 56 percent according to an ABC News/Washington Post survey – believe Hillary Clinton should have been indicted.
With not only FBI agents and half the electorate outraged at Comey’s refusal to indict, but legal experts like Judge Andrew Napolitano openly saying “the evidence of her guilt is overwhelming” and “it was obviously a policy decision by the White House not to investigate her,” Donald Trump has promised as president to appoint a special prosecutor to conduct a complete and fair investigation – one not compromised by shameful political loyalties.
In light of this situation and the dangerous precedent of allowing certain “royalty” to operate above the laws that govern the rest of Americans, WND is launching an important online petition intended to show support for a truly impartial investigation of Hillary Clinton’s violation of the Espionage Act, as well as her blatant contempt of Congress in destroying 33,000 emails three weeks after they were subpoenaed by Congress.
“We’re taking this extraordinary editorial measure because it’s clear now no one but Trump will ever actually attempt to hold the Clintons accountable for their many overt criminal activities,” said Joseph Farah, founder and chief executive officer of WND. “We believe this is reason enough to vote for Trump. He needs encouragement to run hard, win and fulfill his promise to seek a special independent counsel to investigate and prosecute Hillary Clinton as well as to encourage contempt of Congress charges and penalties.”
The petition asks Congress “to hold Hillary Clinton in contempt of Congress for purposely destroying evidence three weeks after it was subpoenaed,” and supports Donald Trump’s intention, 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.”
