I think the civil suits will go ahead, but the criminal suit concerning the top secret materials is going to be set aside by the DOJ being that he is a former president.
A former president without a security clearance has no more right to those documents than you or I. He must be prosecuted. Not to do so sets a precedent that sets us on a path I do not even want to contemplate.
Democracies all over the world prosecute their chief executives on a routine basis. What the hell is wrong with this country where we think that the president is some kind of demigod? Baloney.
“Equal justice under law”
He’s already got his way on the special master; everything the courts do is going to be appealed to the scotus, another president will pardon him because the precedent will create more chaos than anything else so far. If there is proof that the info was given to anyone else, that will make a difference.
That judge is an outlier. I was familiar with her before the ruling through someone close who knew her andwe knew the ruling was coming. I do agree with your last sentence.
We have not heard the last word on the special master.
[The special master issue] Sort of has run its course. The judge in this case is not sticking as strongly to her original thinking. The separation of the Secret from the private papers is reducing the concern that all the files have to be reviewed. Waiting to hear evidence of his complicity in espionage.
We already have evidence of his complicity in espionage. Who leaves top-secret documents that he’s been told repeatedly he doesn’t have a right to have via polite calls, then subpoenas, in their personal drawer in their with their passports?
Spare me the obliviousness.
We’ve been enduring an oblivious, credulous press for six years…not to mention legions of others who refuse to see the evidence repeatedly placed in front of their faces on not one crime but a myriad of crimes – and I’m not talking about hus cult members.
The judge who issued the search warrant would not – and could not – have issued the search warrant citing the Espionage Act without “evidence of complicity in espionage”, to the level of ‘probable cause’, (meaning that the evidence convinced the issuing judge that there is a more than 50% liklihoid that the Espionage Act was violated).
This obvious fact is usually disregarded by the likes of Jake Tapper and Eli Honig on CNN, Fox News in totum, and those continuing, flabby, legions of willing dupes, plenty of liberals among them.
We will look back at our conversations with the ‘Legions of the Credulous’ a few years from now and weep once more in frustration – and we should.
