Justice is hardly blind in the federal case going against Donald Trump

Justice is hardly blind in the federal case going against Donald Trump. By Michael Goodwin.

Weaving in seized texts and emails from key moments, prosecutors have created a compelling picture of their case, with Trump’s personality and habits of deception coming through loud and clear in the 49-page charging document.

What about Joe Biden?

However, I believe that if federal prosecutors had empaneled a grand jury and obtained a search warrant for Joe Biden’s properties and if FBI agents had put his aides, employees and lawyers under oath, scoured their phones and emails and confronted them with evidence to get them to talk, agents would have found that Biden knowingly kept classified documents for many years in his homes and offices, including in the four years between his being vice president and president.

No problem

Honest agents unencumbered by any political bias of their own or their bosses’ might also have discovered that Hunter Biden and other family members and associates had access to the supposedly secret documents and possibly used them in drawing up their lucrative business schemes with foreign officials and businesses. …

Hillary Clinton was much worse:

I also believe that had the Department of Justice empaneled a grand jury and executed a search warrant on Hillary Clinton’s home and offices in 2013 or 2014 and seized her private computer server, phones and electronic devices, along with the devices of her aides and interviewed her lawyers under oath, FBI agents would have found many thousands of unsecured critical documents that were still in her possession long after she left the Department of State.

As it was, more than 2,000 documents deemed to be classified, top secret or confidential were recovered from her devices in 2015 and 2016, despite the fact that Clinton deleted some 33,000 emails she claimed were not work-related.

All good with the FBI

Although the FBI oddly accepted her claim, then-Director James Comey said Clinton was wrong to use a private server and there was evidence she and aides were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

“None of these e-mails should have been on any kind of unclassified system,” Comey said before suddenly changing course and adding: “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”

Comey was out of line in publicly recommending against prosecution, but got away with it — and so did Clinton. …

Selective enforcement:

It is indisputable that Trump is being treated far more harshly than either Biden or Clinton were under very similar circumstances.

All three kept classified documents where and when they shouldn’t have.

Only one is being prosecuted.

All three ran for president, but only one had his campaign spied on by the FBI, an action later found to be unwarranted.

And only one was the victim of nonstop FBI leaks to the media alleging collusion with a foreign power that helped undermine his presidency, even though many of the leaks were found to be misinformation. …

Who is doing the most damage to the American dream? The world’s leading democracy sets an example.

Two standards of justice, open and notorious, are doing more harm to American democracy than Trump could do in two lifetimes.

The decline of trust in government, including the once-hallowed FBI, mostly reflects actions taken by Democrats in recent years to gain or keep power. …

The federal case against Trump now, even if it meets the standard of the law, cannot be divorced from the recent history of election meddling, given that he is the leading GOP candidate against Biden.

Can you bear the hypocrisy?

In a brief statement defending the 37 charges against Trump, special counsel Jack Smith insisted there was nothing unusual about the case, saying, “We have one set of laws in this country and they apply to everybody.”

Please, save it for civics class.

In reality, Biden appointed Attorney General Merrick Garland, who appointed Smith.

Whether he likes it or not, the buck stops on Biden’s desk, especially because Biden let it be known more than a year ago he wanted Trump prosecuted.

Sad. The upper class of globalists and their class of helpers has taken over the Democrats, but doesn’t command majority support — and they know it. They are determined to rule, even if it means ditching democracy. They are tired of pretending, now that Trump has ripped up the illusion that the system was fair.
