Well, well, well! The House GOP is asking for perjury charges against Her Imperial Majesty Hillary I. Excerpt:
A pair of leading House Republicans on Monday laid out detailed instructions for the Justice Department to file perjury charges against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
More than a month after first requesting the department open a criminal probe into Clinton for alleged misstatements she made under oath, the GOP heads of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees told a federal prosecutor specifically where they believed Clinton had lied to Congress about her email setup at the Department of State.
In at least four separate occasions during a marathon appearance before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, the lawmakers alleged, the former secretary’s claims were at odds with what the FBI has now discovered to be the truth about her private server.
“Although there may be other aspects of Secretary Clinton’s sworn testimony that are at odds with the FBI’s findings, her testimony in those four areas bears specific scrutiny in light of the facts and evidence” provided by FBI Director James Comey, Reps. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) told the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, Channing Phillips. Goodlatte leads the Judiciary Committee and Chaffetz runs the Oversight Committee.
Monday’s letter is a sign that Republicans are committed to pressuring the Justice Department to act against Clinton, even after it notably declined to prosecute her for mishandling classified information.
OK, now – who wants to be on whether or not this has any legs?
Well, it might – if the Congressmen refer the information to some authority not beholden to the Justice Department. The Obama Justice Department has shown their true colors; the fix is in, True Believers, and the DoJ has Her Imperial Highness’s back. That’s how it is, and there won’t be any indictment coming out of the DoJ.
An independent prosecutor, though? Is there a chance that someone could convince an Imperial judge to convene a Grand Jury? An indictment would – hopefully – end her plausibility as a Presidential candidate and keep this walking catastrophe out of the Imperial Mansion.
Mind you, probably 45% of the population will vote for her even if was to be inaugurated wearing leg irons. And mind you as well, plenty of folks have tried to get anything to stick to the Clintons, but their Teflon coating remains intact.
Still. This one bears watching.
