A petition asking the Trump Administration to order the FBI to release records related to the Hillary Clinton email investigation surpassed 50,000 signatures this week, more than half the number of signatures needed to compel an official response from the White House.
Another petition launched this morning requests the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Mrs. Clinton and the FBI. As most of you already know, Senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham released a letter last week claiming that former FBI Director James Comey decided to bury the case against Mrs. Clinton months before the key witnesses (including Mrs. Clinton) were interviewed.
At this point, the FBI cannot be trusted to investigate itself or Mrs. Clinton. Of greater significance, however, is the fact that the nation’s premiere law enforcement agency has been tarnished by evidence of lawlessness at the top. If the FBI is to be trusted again, there must be an independent investigation.
That said, for more than a year we’ve had overwhelming evidence that Mrs. Clinton destroyed evidence, broke national security laws, and gave false testimony under oath. Nobody should be above the law, regardless of whether he or she is a Republican or a Democrat, a Bush or a Clinton, a plumber or a Presidential candidate. The issue here is not Democrats vs. Republicans, but the powerful vs. the peons.
ODDS AND ENDS
Last year, I filed suit in state court to force the Maryland Attorney Grievance Commission to investigate my complaints against David Kendall, Cheryl Mills, and Heather Samuelson, the lawyers accused of destroying more than 30,000 emails on behalf of Mrs. Clinton. The Anne Arundel Circuit Court in Annapolis will hear that case on Monday, September 11, 2017 at 9 a.m.
BTW, I apologize for the delays in responding if you have tried to reach me by phone. I was fighting bronchitis, and I’ll start responding to voicemails ASAP. Generally, it’s easier to reach me by email at tyclevenger at yahoo dot com.
