It's not just Bill and Hillary Clinton who epitomize the symptoms of the total breakdown of our justice system, although revelations by WikiLeaks and "leaks" by disgruntled rogue FBI special agents in the last days underscore just how corrupt our system of government has become. Anyone who spent the time to read my columns in the last several years could see where I was headed and read the "tea leaves." In the next weeks, I will publish all of these columns in a multi-volume work titled, appropriately, "Essays of a Mad Man." But for now, I want again to briefly tell it like it is.
First, the executive branch of government, in the last eight years under the stewardship of President Barack Hussein Obama and his pliant and equally compromised and corrupt attorneys general, first Eric Holder and now Loretta Lynch, have obstructed any bona fide investigation not only into the criminality of the Bonnie and Clyde of American politics and the criminal enterprise at the Clinton Foundation and elsewhere, which they run with their ethically bereft daughter, Chelsea, but also a number of other Obama-Clinton scandals, ranging from Benghazi-gate, Fast and Furious-gate, IRS-gate, Black Lives Matters-gate, Amnesty-gate and a host of others.
Obama, Holder and Lynch, along with a seemingly compromised FBI Director James Comey, succeeded, at least until now, in totally shutting down any semblance of a Lady Justice's blind system. In this world, which I also wrote about early on in my 2009 autobiography, "Whores: Why And How I Came To Fight The Establishment," I told of my experience as a young trial lawyer and prosecutor in the Justice Department – namely that those who are the so-called elites do not generally get prosecuted; only low-level corrupt government officials and others with no political connections usually pay the price. But what I saw at the Justice Department in the early 1980s pales in comparison to what we are now witnessing. Today, there is not even a semblance of equal justice to be applied to the establishments of both political parties, and particularly the scum in and around Obama and the Clintons.

To add serious insult to injury to the republic, the legislative branch of government, both the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives, have abdicated any hard-hitting oversight authority over the executive and judicial branches, as was intended as a check and balance by the framers of our Constitution. In the last eight years in particular, as just one example, the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee, first run by California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa and now by Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz, has "investigated" various government scandals for "show and not dough."
While Issa was a bit more sincere than media whore Chaffetz, who can't help donning a smile in reveling in the latest outrage of Obama and the Clintons, as it allows him to get prime-time appearances on various cable shows, neither of them actually held even one public official accountable – not even Eric Holder who clearly lied before Congress in the Fast and Furious-gate investigation, not to mention his myriad of other lies under oath. And, when Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied to the Senate Intelligence and other congressional committees that the National Security Agency (NSA) was not collecting telephonic and Internet metadata on hundreds of millions of American citizens, and was caught doing so red-handed by the revelations of Edward Snowden, there was no consequence. Clapper committed clear cut perjury but went merrily on his way as the nation's chief spook to continue the subterfuge that the NSA and other intelligence agencies were not training their supercomputers on "Ma and Pa Kettle." And, this does not even take into account that our vaunted intelligences agencies did not train their sights on Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton, Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, John Podesta and the hordes of degenerate criminals around them, all of whom furthered and then obstructed any real investigation and justice over the national security breaches caused in large part by the illegal use of Mrs. Clinton's private server.
Now that we know, given recent disclosures by embittered FBI special agents in the last days, that this private server was hacked with 99 percent certainly by at least five foreign powers, most likely the Islamic Republic of Iran, North Korea, Russia, China and maybe even a friendly power, Israel – which is quite adept at keeping track of our anti-Semitic president and his Muslim, anti-Israeli minions at the State Department – it's clear that the NSA and its sister agency, the CIA, would rather have spent their resources and time enslaving ordinary Americans with their surveillance than really conducting the business for which they were empowered. Indeed, federal Judge Richard Leon observed in Freedom Watch's effective lawsuits to shut down this mass surveillance that neither the NSA nor the CIA stopped one terrorist attack with their illegal and unconstitutional collection of metadata on the entire American citizenry.
Last but not least, there are the federal judges who, as I envisioned when I conceived of and founded Judicial Watch in 1994 during the first Clinton presidency, would check tyranny by the executive and legislative branches of government, who have also taken an exit stage left. The federal judiciary has become so politicized, particularly since the overwhelming majority are now, with 16 of the last 24 years of Democratic rule, appointees of Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, they themselves have dutifully covered up the burgeoning Clinton-Obama administration private email server scandal and the obstruction of the State Department in preventing release of relevant documentation under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). With not one exception in FOIA cases concerning the Hillary Clinton and the State Department, they have slow rolled cases filed years ago, to not "interfere" in Hillary's presidential ambitions, to the point that only a trickle of documents have been produced. Just yesterday, after I moved Judge Emmet Sullivan to recall Huma Abedin for deposition in light of the new disclosures that over 650,000 emails on the laptop of her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner, this Clinton appointee predictably denied my motion.

The bottom line is this: Given the total breakdown of our justice system, and the cover-up by Obama's executive branch Justice and State Departments, as well as the ineffectiveness of the Republican Congress to conduct real investigations with consequences, coupled with corruption by federal judges who've failed to do their jobs by enforcing FOIA and related cases, it remained only for WikiLeaks, through illegal hacks, to expose the truth. But now that the truth is exposed, who will bring the Obama-Clinton criminals to justice?
I for one will do my part as the chairman and general counsel of Freedom Watch no matter who wins the presidential election Nov. 8. But given the instructive legacy of how the new administration of President George W. Bush in 2001 refused to prosecute the Clintons for the crimes of their first administration, as the Washington establishment club of both parties protect themselves, it's unlikely we can count on any of the three branches of government to restore justice to the nation. It will, as in 1776, ultimately fall on We the People to clean house.
