Whether or not Hillary Clinton has gotten away with murder is up for debate, but millions of Americans know that she’s gotten off scot free for committing lesser crimes.
Donald Trump isn’t alone in pointing out that the FBI refused to prosecute Hillary with offenses that others have been convicted of. One of those individuals is an American serviceman, and his lawyers are using this double standard as part of his defense.
A Navy sailor facing the possibility of years in prison for taking a handful of classified photos inside a nuclear submarine is making a bid for leniency by citing the decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton over classified information authorities say was found in her private email account. (…)
Democratic Presidential Candidate and former Secretary of State Hilary [sic] Clinton…has come under scrutiny for engaging in acts similar to Mr. Saucier,” Hogan wrote.
“In our case, Mr. Saucier possessed six (6) photographs classified as ‘confidential/restricted,’ far less than Clinton’s 110 emails,” Hogan wrote. “It will be unjust and unfair for Mr. Saucier to receive any sentence other than probation for a crime those more powerful than him will likely avoid.”
As Allen West writes at his website:
“Let’s be honest, there are no distinctions between what PO1 Saucier did and what Mrs. Clinton did. Both were entrusted with handling classified information. Saucier destroyed a laptop, camera, and a memory card…Clinton destroyed some 33,000 emails. The real distinction is that PO1 Saucier admitted his guilt. Hillary Clinton has entangled herself in such a web of lies that she’s now lying about the lie.”
Will anyone in the mainstream media dare to ask Hillary Clinton about this case?
Probably not, since the Democratic candidate for president hasn’t held a press conference in months. It’s almost certain, however, that Donald Trump and his supporters won’t be shy about discussing this blatant double standard.
UPDATE: Federal judge rejects “Clinton Defense”. Sailor to be prosecuted!
