    Trump Calls For A Special Prosecutor

    Donald Trump intensified his effort Monday to shift the focus of the campaign to Hillary Clinton and the huge donations to the Clinton Foundation from foreign benefactors, calling for a special prosecutor to "investigate Hillary Clinton's crimes."

    Trump argued during a campaign rally in Akron, Ohio, that the federal government could not be trusted to impartially probe Clinton's relationship to the foundation and its donors.

    "The Justice Department is required to appoint an independent Special Prosecutor because it has proven itself to be a political arm of the White House," he said.

    The Clinton Foundation Shakedown Racket Didn’t Have Enough Buffers to Shield Hillary Clinton

    Hillary Clinton never expected the incriminating Clinton Foundation e-mails to come to light. They show that her subordinates or associates in the Foundation, Huma Abedin and Doug Band, sold access to the Secretary of State, a clear offense. That’s my reading. There’s enough evidence there to have experienced and unbiased lawyers question them under oath. If this doesn’t come to pass, I’ll take it as one more nail in the rule-of-law coffin in this country.

    On an investigation, I support the following:

    “These new emails confirm that Hillary Clinton abused her office by selling favors to Clinton Foundation donors,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “There needs to be a serious, independent investigation to determine whether Clinton and others broke the law.”

    These two Foundation functionaries were very close to Hillary Clinton. “She [Huma Abedin] has been a long-time aide to Hillary Clinton, and was U.S. Secretary of State Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff at the State Department.” Band advised Clinton during his presidency and thereafter.

    Although they may have operated the racket on their own, I am certain that Hillary granted access to those whom she knew to be donors and I’m sure that she relied upon Abedin and Band to filter people who gained access to her, giving preference to donors. The donors expected this and got it. However, my judgment is just that. We really need an investigation. Hillary is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. But is there such a court prepared to charge and try her?

    The question before us is whether there is any institution within the justice system to test the innocence of a major candidate for the presidency. The FBI has already shown its cowardice and so has the U.S. Department of Justice under Ms. Lynch, who, by the way, met inappropriately (or worse) with Bill Clinton.

    I refer to the Godfather’s buffers in Godfather 2.

    In 2003, when a top presidential appointee was suspected of mishandling classified information,
    that president’s attorney general recused himself from the matter.
    A special prosecutor was appointed to investigate the allegations
    and determine if prosecution was warranted.
    That prosecutor investigated the case, brought charges, and obtained a conviction.

    This was, of course, the Valerie Plame/CIA affair
    which ensnared top White House official Scooter Libby,
    who was later charged by the special prosecutor
    and convicted by a jury.

    And who was the individual at the DOJ who appointed the special prosecutor?
    James Comey, the current director of the FBI. (lol)

    John Aschroft, the attorney general under George W. Bush,
    had the good sense to recuse himself from the matter
    and appoint Comey to make the decision
    about how the case ought to proceed.

    Ashcroft knew his own involvement would only taint
    whatever decision was finally made.
    So he removed entirely the possibility of political interference by recusing himself.

    As a Senator, Barack Obama hailed the verdict in that case
    and the process that led to it.
