Let me tell you why we don't need to wait for the FBI to complete its newly reopened investigation of Hillary Clinton's email scandal to determine not to allow her, under any circumstances, to become president of the United States.
What we already know, with certainty, is that she represents a living, breathing threat to national security.
We don't need any more details. We don't need to connect any more dots. We don't need to confirm that she had a cavalier attitude as secretary of state to maintaining secrets, protecting classified information and guarding national security.
In fact, that's an understatement.
Her attitude was worse than cavalier. It was reckless. It was negligent. It was dereliction of duty.
I have no doubts that FBI Director James Comey is aware of more evidence of what we already know – that if Hillary Clinton was virtually any other American citizen, she would already be behind bars, thoroughly disgraced, convicted of crimes that fall under the Espionage Act.
Think about that.
The Espionage Act.
That's the law Hillary Clinton repeatedly violated, and the only question remaining in the minds of those familiar with the actions is whether those violations were intentional or just due to extreme carelessness.
But it really doesn't matter under the law.
There are plenty of "everyday Americans," the kind we're told by no less authority than Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, John Podesta, whom the presidential nominee "hates."
It defies logic that Hillary Clinton now calls on the FBI to release everything it has found. As every American should know, Hillary Clinton did everything in her power to cover up the scandal of her own making over the last year. The latest part of the investigation centers on her closest aide, her chief of staff, her best friend, Huma Abedin, who has long posed national security concerns in her own right because of her family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Then there's the wild card of her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner, now under criminal investigation as a pedophile.
Gee! What could go wrong with a scenario like that – a high-ranking government official seeking to become president who exhibits callous disregard for national security protocols, a trusted aide who worked in her family magazine in Saudi Arabia on behalf of radical Islamic causes who was married to a Jewish member of Congress who had a propensity for compromising himself through illicit and bizarre sexual activity?
"I have an idea! Let's make the architect of this mess the president of the United States." That's what the Democratic Party decided.
What more could we possibly find to disqualify Hillary for the presidency?
She has already disqualified herself.
And, by the way, that's just one of the ways she has disqualified herself.
Now she is a presidential candidate under criminal investigation by the FBI. She is the only other presidential candidate who has found herself in that position once before. She was in that position for most of the time she pursued the Democratic Party nomination, was only briefly off the hook, now finds herself back in that position.
Will Americans really consider electing a president who is currently under criminal investigation for espionage crimes?
That's the question before us today.
It boggles the mind to consider it's a possibility. It's even worse to turn on the news and watch network after network, pundit after pundit, making the case for just that scenario.
That's why rational people need to recognize just how thoroughly corrupt Washington has become and why we need to "drain the swamp."
There is no longer any real choice but to vote for Donald Trump. I have already done so enthusiastically.
