Skip to comments.Gowdy: Hillary Clinton Should Be Treated As David Petreaus Was, Equal Under The Law
Posted on 08/12/2015 12:10:34 PM PDT by Kaslin
As you've probably read by now, Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had at least two top-secret, classified information emails stored on her private server. The FBI is currently conducting a criminal investigation and her server has been turned over.
The Clintons have always been known as the teflon couple, somehow capable of dodging any scandal that comes their way. But this time, things could be different.
As you'll recall, General David Petraeus was charged, prosecuted of convicted of improperly storing classified information in his home. The information Petraeus had was categorized at the lowest level of the classified tier. The information found on Clinton's server by the Inspector General is classified as top secret, the second to highest level.
So the question is now, will Hillary Clinton be treated equally under the law? Or will she get a free pass? Chairman of the House Benghazi Select Committee and former prosecutor Trey Gowdy believes in the former.
"The lady out in front of the Department of Justice wears a blindfold and holds a set of scales and she does so that she treats everybody the same whether it's me or you, whether it's General Petreaus, whether it's a cabinet level official. I was not part of the prosecution team or the defense team for David Petreaus, I don't know all of the facts. I know this, the same rule ought to apply people irrespective of their station in life," Gowdy said during an interview with Fox News Wednesday. "So, I'm going to have to count on the Bureau [FBI] and [Director] Jim Comey has a reputation for even handedness and fairness. The same folks who investigated and prosecuted General Petreaus are looking into the current allegations with respect to classified information and if the facts are the same then I expect the result to be the same."
We'll see if Lady Justice is really blind.
I think she’s the Democrat Jeb Bush (easiest to defeat) and starting to think she won’t make the show.
Trump’s Attorney General choice.
Joe Biden is waiting in the wings, as soon as he gets finished doing laps in the pool, and Bernie the Socialist is on deck.
Seriously, the Dem’s party of evil does not tolerate dissent, or differing points of view left the bench as empty as Old Mother Hubbard’s cupboard. Obama is the only one with a bone of his own and it’s gnawed down to the nub.
Who the hell is he kidding. We all know nothing will happen to her.
It was the General's day planner calendar.
Petraeus got off with a wrist slap.
Clinton should be treated like an enemy spy, that’s the proper standard to use here. This is a woman who took tens of millions from foreign governments.
Yes, but laws are applied unfairly in this country. Democrats protect other democrats and harass normal people.
Hillary is a criminal and needs to be in jail.
Different in that pumpin pig hillary will end up in a jail cell.
What Hillary is banking on.
All the time.
All the time.
Here is what they will do: [/crickets]
Pretty words. To date Gowdy has done little but posture.
Mrs. Clinton Equal Under The Law?
Not aware they had been sent...not marked...not classified at the time of sending...misunderstanding...Republican witchhunt...
My guess is that nothing happens to her. It will be difficult, one Clinton defense tactic is to cloud the issue with tons and tons of contradictory data and “facts” while bringing up bias and conspiracies.
Not a chance. Laws are only for us serfs and the military.
YEP! Very sad...
Very funny, sad, and true...
Either Boehner squashes it or Gowdy is in on the Kabuki Theatre.
Paging Scooter Libby.
