As the mainstream media continues tripping over itself to paint a picture that the Trump administration is some sort of crime syndicate, there’s plenty of real live brow-furrowing instances of wrongdoing on the Left that get nary a mention.
Many of those instances involve failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, but we finally have some signs that it may not have been completely swept under the carpet.
The Daily Wire passes along the scoop on that.
“The Justice Department has reopened the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material on her private email system while she was secretary of state, and is considering offering her a plea bargain if she will agree to plead guilty to charges of breaking the law, according to a Clinton attorney,” Newsmax reports.
The discussion of a plea bargain took place late last month and was offered by a high-ranking Justice Department official to the Clinton lawyer.
While the plea bargain offer quickly causes visions of FBI paddy wagons heading up to Chappaqua to head to the sidelines, a slap on the wrist while exposing the fact that Clinton is not above the law is nothing to sneeze at.
If nothing else, it’s far better than complete inaction that leaves you walking away shaking your head while complaining about the smells from the various Clinton scandal stories.
During the exploratory talks with the prosecutor, the Clinton attorney was told that despite former FBI Director James Comey’s decision last July not to prosecute Hillary, the Justice Department has reexamined the email case and believes there are ample grounds for prosecuting Hillary on a number of counts.
Under the Justice Department’s plea offer, Hillary would be required to sign a document admitting that she committed a prosecutable crime. In return, the DOJ would agree not to bring charges against Hillary in connection with the email probe.
Perhaps it’s wishful thinking, but is there any chance that we can get her to write “I committed a prosecutable time’ on a blackboard about a thousand times in front of a primetime audience?
That smells like ratings gold, and it would give new meaning to the phrase ‘must see TV.’
If that can’t happen, we’ll compromise and add the condition that she can never appear in a public setting with a microphone in front of her face again as a condition of the deal.
