Slimy cohorts who’ve helped force the liberal lifestyle upon the American people may be able to slither away from criminal investigations.
Liberals have blatantly, abusively used the president’s bully pulpit and his justice officials have used laws to help cohorts get away with whatever they want for eight years. Anyone believing in American values or speaking about conservative viewpoints has been turned into a villain.
The biggest snake of the left, Hillary Clinton, and those high in justice and law enforcement who helped her may get away with any dirty deeds they committed. A high-profile inspector faces a legal knot that may prevent any tough scrutiny of alleged policy violations that helped, or hurt, Clinton during the presidential election.
Key Department of Justice (DOJ) officials may escape being interviewed in DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s review of possible violations, according to The Daily Caller. The review follows the FBI’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a home-brew email server to do official government business.
Inspectors general only have authority to compel current government employees to comply with interview requests under the Inspector General Act. They are unable to force testimony from officials like Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Peter Kadzik once they leave office. That includes President Barack Obama, potentially leaving Horowitz to deal with gaping holes in his review.
Horowitz announced last week he is investigating whether DOJ and the FBI broke federal policy in handling the Clinton email investigation in the months leading up to the presidential election, according to The Daily Caller.
Horowitz is focusing on allegations that FBI Director James Comey’s July public speech and subsequent congressional letters about the case broke procedure, that Comey should have recused himself from the case, and that Kadzik improperly disclosed nonpublic information to Clinton’s campaign, among other matters.
This inspector general investigation highlights the frustration of the American people.
Any average citizen suspected of wrongdoing is always investigated using a variety of laws, and citizens don’t get passes just because they are no longer working at the place where they broke the law.
Congress and other government officials, on the other hand, can simply step away from their government position and investigators can’t touch them.
Policy violations may be one thing, but these government officials – entrusted by the American people – committed acts that harmed the nation. Investigators should have full access to them at any time.
