During the summer of 2015, I called for an impartial nonpartisan special counsel to be appointed to investigate Hillary Clinton’s private email server and related matters. It was clear to me that Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the time had a conflict of interest because President Clinton appointed her as United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York in 1999.
How does a political appointee like Lynch fairly investigate her party’s own frontrunner for president who also happens to be Bill Clinton’s spouse? My suspicions were correct. We now see that President Obama’s Justice Department was in the tank for Hillary Clinton all along. Since then, many lawmakers also have called for a special counsel for the Clinton case.
The secret tarmac meeting between Attorney General Lynch and President Clinton as Hillary’s email server investigation was reaching critical mass smacked of obstruction of justice. For me, it put an exclamation point on her obvious conflict with regard to investigating the Clintons. That this troubling episode didn’t trigger a special counsel told me all I needed to know. It seemed the fix was in for Hillary. I knew it. Donald Trump knew it. And tens of millions of Americans knew it.

Since then, we’ve learned that former FBI Director James Comey’s highly suspect public announcement that Clinton would not be prosecuted was just window dressing designed to fool the American people. Now we know that fateful decision was already being baked months before. Americans are right to be outraged when they see a person cleared of criminal wrongdoing before being questioned by law enforcement. This is preferential treatment by the elites, for the elites.
