Correction/Clarification: This article is based on the opinions of Elder Patriot and should be read as his view of the history of the Clinton’s in American politics. It has been updated to further clarify that the report of Hillary being offered a deal by the DOJ has not been verified and remains a rumor, as does her use of her role of Secretary of State to further her own interests, both financial and otherwise.
Elder Patriot – Hillary Clinton has gotten away with criminal acts so many times that she has come to believe no one can touch her. That’s the only way to explain why she reportedly turned the generous plea bargain offered her by Trump’s Justice Department last July. That, or she’s so delusional she still thinks she’s going to be president.
According to a report filed in August of 2017 by respected investigative journalist Ed Klein:
“The discussion of a plea bargain took place late last month and was offered by a high-ranking Justice Department official to the Clinton lawyer.
“During the exploratory talks with the prosecutor, the Clinton attorney was told that despite former FBI Director James Comey’s decision last July not to prosecute Hillary, the Justice Department has reexamined the email case and believes there are ample grounds for prosecuting Hillary on a number of counts.
“Under the Justice Department’s plea offer, Hillary would be required to sign a document admitting that she committed a prosecutable crime. In return, the DOJ would agree not to bring charges against Hillary in connection with the email probe.
“Also as part of the agreement, the Justice Department would not proceed with an investigation of Hillary’s pay to play deals with foreign governments and businessmen who contributed to the Clinton Foundation or who paid Bill Clinton exorbitant speaking fees.”
Whether the offer came from a Clinton sympathizer still hiding in the shadows at the DOJ wanting to give a free pass to Hillary, or under orders from President Trump himself looking to end this national nightmare and to avoid what is almost certain to become a constitutional crisis is not known.
What is known is that Hillary Clinton made the wrong decision as evidence of her role in funding and using the Russian dossier and in mounting suspicion that she using the levers available to monetize the trust placed in her as Secretary of State.
Hillary was a constitutional crisis waiting to happen. Thank God that she never became president. Her hubris is frightening.
More importantly, I believe that Hillary’s scorched earth strategy may well result in the end of the modern Democratic Party.
