Commentary: Emails show Clinton thinks she’s above the law

Commentary: Emails show Clinton thinks she’s above the law, by Carrie Lukas.

Her campaign now is relying on the tried-and-true Clinton tactic of demonizing anyone who dares question her ethics as a partisan hack. They trust that the media and the public will overlook the fact that the inspector general is no conservative firebrand but rather a President Obama appointee.

Americans should be warned that this attitude trickles into Clinton’s policy positions. She promises to promote policies that will crack down on corporate cronyism and too-big-to-fail banks, and regulate every aspect of business life. But you can bet that she and her friends will continue to game the system and rake in their personal fortunes from the very fat cats she claims to want to fight. …

Americans have had enough of a ruling class that thinks it’s above the rest of us. We are supposed to be a nation of laws, after all, and those laws are meant to apply to everyone, even those with titles like secretary or senator.

During this campaign, of course, Clinton is pretending to be a populist and stand with the little guy. But we know from her past behavior that under a President Hillary, we’d have business as usual and the perpetuation of a political system rigged to benefit the politically connected – especially those named Clinton.
