Subversion Of Justice

You guessed it, on the very day that Congress had to take action to try to get compliance while they had Rosenstein and Wray testifying, what did Nancy Pelosi do?

She took to the floor, on the House action vote, pleading to Rosenstein and Wray not to comply or cooperate with document requests which made the House subpoena necessary.

Then later in the hearing Rosentein referred to questions about the legality of the subpoena. He opened the door to noncompliance on that and other reasons.

The latest episode of the government defying the American people.

Wray, for his part, reiterated his claims of all the good the FBI does. He said nothing in the IG report, or Horowitz’s testimony, questioned the integrity of the institution of the FBI. How can this elaborate plot and rampant bias of a cabal from the 7th floor headquarters of the FBI not impugn the integrity of the institution? It does. Congress did not do that.

These top officials in the FBI were willing to risk the entire credibility of the institution, with their own, to do what they did. They didn’t care. Now they act as if all that didn’t happen. Instead they blamed Congress for its chase of documents.

Think about it, these career people put the whole institution on the line and they knew it. That’s abuse of power. Plus there has still been no accountability — except Comey and dufus McCabe getting fired. Yet the plot they started continues, by Rosenstein implying there might even be questions about the validity of the subpoena.

Another glimpse of how Rosenstein thinks:”ignore the tyranny of the news cycle,” he said. So officials use the very process, procedures of our top institution to obstruct and subvert Congressional oversight, and then complain about the news cycle. The news is tyrannical? It all happened within DOJ… now tell us about tyranny!

Sponsor of DOJ

And now a word from our acting Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein:

“From now on, our Department will not usurp Congress’s job of making the rules. We will stick to enforcing them.”—Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein

Either this is the all-time best spoof on you’ve been pranked. or the guy who gave that speech in Florida is being held somewhere in seclusion against his will.

I have an idea, while we are at it. Hey Government, DOJ and FBI et al, we the people have a taint team that needs to review government documents.(our documents) ASAP.

At the very same time DOJ stonewalls and refuses to cooperate with simple document requests from Congress, they handed off to the Southern District in NY to break in and seize Michael Cohen’s documents. They don’t have any problem with blatant hypocrisy.

Rule of law has sort of a ring to it.

It’s the law, stupid: an anathema to Clinton

The law on records was lost in this murky area of Clintonisms. Then Hillary and the Left’s explanations are only further attempts to muddy up the water even more. “Depends on the meaning of is, there is no there there, we need to move on.” Move on to where?

1663. Protection Of Government Property — Protection Of Public Records And Documents

There are several important aspects to this offense. First, it is a specific intent crime. This means that the defendant must act intentionally with knowledge that he is violating the law. See United States v. Simpson, 460 F.2d 515, 518 (9th Cir. 1972). Moreover, one case has suggested that this specific intent requires that the defendant know that the documents involved are public records. See United States v. DeGroat, 30 F. 764, 765 (E.D.Mich. 1887).

Subsection (b) of 18 U.S.C. § 2071 contains a similar prohibition specifically directed at custodians of public records. Any custodian of a public record who “willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys (any record) shall be fined not more than $2,000 or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.” While the range of acts proscribed by this subsection is somewhat narrower than subsection (a), it does provide the additional penalty of forfeiture of position with the United States.

Sure Hillary knew that these were public records. After all, that was her purpose in obfuscating the gov system with her server – for fear they’d be public.

Then she had to know that she was destroying them. Of course using someone else to carry it out was essential for her. Still, she knew the objective was to destroy them. If they merely dissapeared and she discovered that they did, wouldn’t she have to report that? (I don’t know or find the law on that) She had given access to the records to lawyers and staff for that purpose. I mean it had to be at her request or they wouldn’t have been doing it.

They didn’t find what they were not looking for. That’s a surprise?

Now along comes Elijah Cummings to throw Hillary another lifeline about an email with Colin Powell. So Hilary planned on using Colin Powell as an excuse and an alibi for what she planned to do, to obfuscate the government records process.

The more that comes out the more intention cannot be ignored. We saw Comey do what our government loves to do, pass the buck. All this is also in addition, and aside, from the classified information process. She should not be qualified to run for any public office. Case closed. Problem is we the people have been hoodwinked, once again. She’ll do anything. And let the misinformation flow.

But Hillary is deeply offended when people shout “Lock her up.”

Past is prologue with Hillary

The problem with Hillary is we don’t have to look far from her for a parallel. She wants us to think this is all about nothing. She wants us to think she was not trying to bypass the national archives.(and certainly their filing system to comply with FOIA requests.)

But just take a trip back to the Clinton years and who pops up? Good old Sandy Berger, notorious document thief. He was caught stealing documents from national archives.

Sandy Berger fined $50,000 for taking documents
Thursday, September 8, 2005 | CNN

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger was sentenced Thursday to community service and probation and fined $50,000 for illegally removing highly classified documents from the National Archives and intentionally destroying some of them.

Berger must perform 100 hours of community service and pay the fine as well as $6,905 for the administrative costs of his two-year probation, a district court judge ruled.

“I deeply regret the actions that I took at the National Archives two years ago, and I accept the judgment of the court,” Berger said outside the courthouse after his sentencing.

According to the charges, Berger — between September 2 and October 2, 2003 — “knowingly removed classified documents from the National Archives and Records Administration and stored and retained such documents at places,” such as his private Washington office. – More>

With that in mind, Hillary just started out from a point of securing information on her private server. Problem solved. In the event of a problem, she has control over the records she kept there. Sandy Berger had nothing on Hillary. And his pants were probably not large enough to hold those documents.
