“No man is above the law.”
That’s the mantra this weekend among Democrats and state-run media (but I repeat myself).
In America today, that is undoubtedly true. No man — or woman — is above the law.
Unless his or her name is, say, Biden or Clinton or Comey or Clapper or Brennan or Wray or McCabe or Strzok or Lerner or Holder or… well, you get the picture.
No man is above the law unless… he’s a Democrat. In which case, there are no laws. Or at least, none that will ever be used against you.
If you read the feds’ “sweeping” indictment of former President Donald J. Trump, the charges barely rise to the level of, “Are you kidding me?”
The key evidence — the smoking gun — seems to be a conversation Trump had two summers ago in New Jersey. He was talking with several people — also known as witnesses — concerning an upcoming book. His remarks were recorded, because Trump didn’t want to be misquoted down the road.
Trump was chatting about the then-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark “Thoroughly Modern” Milley, the pride of Belmont Hill School.
Milley had been dumping on Trump, around the clock, on all the stations on the RCHN — the Russian Collusion Hoax Network. Milley’s latest whopper was that after the 2020 election, Trump had wanted to attack Iran.
The president had been rummaging around in some old documents — the way anybody does who’s looking for some piece of paper that’s suddenly become germane again. Apparently POTUS had just found what he was looking for.
The crooked G-men Democrats don’t use the words “Milley” and “Iran” because that’s the official procedure if you’re on the level, which they most certainly aren’t. But Milley and Iran are who and what Trump is talking about.
This is Trump on his own tape, talking about Thoroughly Modern Milley:
“He said that I wanted to attack Iran. Isn’t that amazing? I have a big pile of papers. This just came up. Look — that was him.”
He was probably holding the paper up, like anybody would do.
“They presented me this — this is off the record. They presented this to me. This was him… This wasn’t done by me. This was him.”
And next comes what I guess special Democrat prosecutor who calls himself “Jack Smith” considers the smoking gun.
“This totally wins my case, you know. Except it is like highly confidential. Secret. This is secret information. Look, look at this.”
To which I say, Big bleepin’ deal.
Okay, Trump shouldn’t have been waving the documents around, but so what? It’s not like he’s accused of taking $10 million in payoffs from a country to which we have now funneled at least $75 billion in foreign handouts to — do you see where I’m going with this?
The FBI has been ignoring those accusations against Joe Biden since 2020. If Republicans hadn’t won the House, the G-men would still be giving all the crooked Bidens a good-leaving alone.
But, but I thought no man was above the law.
Compared to what the Bidens are accused of, these allegations against Trump seem like very thin gruel indeed. Yet a special counsel to frame, I mean investigate Trump was appointed just last November. Now, less than seven months later, we have a 37-count indictment.
There’s a famous quote attributed to Lavrentiy Beria, the head of Stalin’s secret police: “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.”
A Boston lawyer named Harvey Silverglate wrote a book about how easy it is now for the G-men to take down whomever they decide to target.
The title says it all: “Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent.”
Maybe Trump did violate some obscure statute about classified documents, but does he stand accused of taking millions in payoffs from sinister foreign nationals?
Was Trump ever the beneficiary of a vast left-wing conspiracy by the “intelligence community” after his son admitted on his laptop to being Joe Biden’s bagman and picking up cash for the family from the Red Chinese?
Of course not. Because… Democrats. Call it professional courtesy.
In 2016, Hillary Clinton was likewise violating the Espionage Act, only on a much grander scale, among other things destroying 33,000 emails subpoenaed by Congress. She hired the wife of an NBC “News” anchor as her lawyer. Her Democrat fellow travelers then permitted her to claim attorney-client privilege for all her aides, even the ones who weren’t lawyers. That meant nobody could testify against her. How convenient.
Yet Trump’s lawyer was just forced by a Democrat judge to turn over evidence against him because… Republicans.
At the end Hillary wasn’t indicted, because, as corrupt FBI boss James Comey lectured, “No reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
Again, professional courtesy.
The FBI sat on Hunter Biden’s laptop for months, doing absolutely nothing, trying to run out the clock on the statute of limitations. But boy did the G-men move fast on Trump making a joke about Thoroughly Modern Milley.
I’m just surprised Trump also wasn’t charged with some federal version of lese-majeste, or maybe even blasphemy, for making sport of that bloated paper-shuffler Milley. How dare anyone laugh at the teammate of Adm. Rachel Levine on the 1-6 Belmont Hill football team of 1974!
And such fortuitous timing for the indictment, the day after we finally find out what was in that FD-1023 that the G-men a week ago were claiming didn’t exist. And the charges also came shortly after the release of the incredible Durham report about the Democrats’ Russian collusion hoax, and all the bombshells therein.
Hillary’s hoax was the biggest scandal in American political history, by far. Yet nobody went to prison, nobody even lost their pensions. Instead they all got big book contracts, sinecures on state-run cable TV and lecture tours. They became “adjunct professors” of ethics and bought mansions on Martha’s Vineyard.
But no man is above the law. Remember that, all you damn deplorables. Wink wink nudge nudge.
