In the last week, this is what I have seen:
The former Secretary of State and current Presidential Candidate, was under investigation by the FBI for violating Federal law in mishandling classified information. That mishandling possibly allowing classified information to fall into the hands of less than friendly nations.
The former President of the United States and husband of the Secretary of State was under investigation meeting with the Attorney General of the United States in an unofficial meeting on an airplane.
The former Secretary of State and current Presidential Candidate floated the idea that if she won the election, the current Attorney General might be kept on an be the Attorney General of her administration.
The Attorney General punts on determining if prosecution is warranted based upon the FBI investigation to the FBI, abdicating her legal responsibilities.
The FBI Director holds a press conference detailing all the ways the former Secretary of State and current Presidential Candidate violated Federal law, as well as showing evidence that she committed perjury during her testimony in a previous (Benghazi) hearing. Despite the evidence to this felonious behavior, the FBI Director recommends against prosecution of the former Secretary of State and current Presidential Candidate, while admitting that anybody else would be brought up on charges for doing the same thing.
The Justice Department headed by the Attorney General, announced that none of the assistants or support people involved in this violation of Federal law will be prosecuted either.
Following the FBI Director’s press conference, the current President of the United States attends a campaign rally for the former Secretary of State and current Presidential Candidate, in which he allows the former Secretary of State and current Presidential Candidate to break with tradition and decorum and give a campaign speech from behind the Seal of the President of the United States.
Now the political party of the President of the United States, the former Secretary of State, and the Attorney General, as well as the majority of journalists covering this want the rest of us to believe that what appears to be naked, open, and abject corruption, is just a lot of hoo-hah over nothing.
Let me ask this question:
At this point, is it even worth holding an election? If those in power are going to be so corrupt so brazenly, is it necessary to go through the pro forma process of an election? If the current President simply appointed the former Secretary of State to the position of President by executive action, in the words of the former Secretary of State ” what difference does it make?”
