So much for the concept of justice being blind, and the scales being weighed rightly for all.
Once again, a recent act shows just why this Justice Department under President Obama can’t be trusted to do the right thing.
Here’s a taste of what the agency’s now done, according to the Washington Examiner: “House Republicans are demanding to know why Justice Department officials entered into a pair of ‘side agreements’ with Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson – two of Hillary Clinton’s top former aides who went on to become her personal attorneys during the FBI’s email investigation – that allowed law enforcement agents to destroy their laptops after searching their hard drives for evidence.”
House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte penned a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch this week, asking why these laptops were included in the immunity deals handed Mills and Samuelson, and why they were allowed to be destroyed.
“Like many things about this case, these new materials raise more questions than answers,” Goodlatte wrote, the Washington Examiner reported.
Critics like Goodlatte also want to know why Mills and Samuelson were allowed to join Clinton on her question-answer session with the FBI about her private home-based email server – if they had already been granted immunity.
Goodlatte also asked Lynch to explain why the FBI only searched for documents related to Clinton’s email server that were dated before January 2015, saying that “such parameters prevented investigators from examining potential proof of the destruction of evidence that may have occurred after that date,” the Washington Examiner reported.
An attorney for Mills and Samuelson had secured their immunity deals before handing over their laptops to the feds.
