Default Democratic Rep. says Hillary Clinton shouldn't be investigated because she lost the e

Libs now think only presidents should be investigated.

I need to be on super-strength angel dust to understand lib logic.

Democratic Rep. says Hillary Clinton shouldn't be investigated because she lost the election

Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) opined on CNN that Hillary Clinton should not be investigated by Republicans because she lost the election and is not the president.

In the segment on Friday evening with John Berman, Gallego called the report from House Republicans on the FBI handling of Clinton's emails "pure obsession," and then gave his strange reasoning for why she shouldn't be investigated.

"There have been plenty of Republicans and Republicans in leadership that have undermined the Mueller investigation, both by their public statements," Gallego claimed, "as well as running some shoddy investigations."

"If you look at the House Intelligence Committee, and their investigation, it was basically an effort to cover up whatever this presidency did," he added.

Berman pointed out that the document recommended an additional special counsel look into discrepancies they identified in how the FBI treated Hillary Clinton.

"This is just pure obsession," Gallego said, "by you know, these Republicans."

"Hillary Clinton is no longer a presidential candidate," he continued, "uh, the president is Donald Trump. He has clearly done some levels of violation that should be investigated."

"They need to get over it, Hillary Clinton is not your president," Gallego added, "she is not the person that should be investigated."

"The collusion, the crimes that have occurred, have occurred under this administration and it's time to actually look into and see what happened instead of trying to dodge it and distract by throwing something about Hillary Clinton out there.

Berman pointed out that there has been no conclusion so far about collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials in the Mueller investigation.

W Bush, Obama, Hillary, Bill, Chenny, Rumsfeld, and many others should be investigated. (should have long ago).
But the good old boys and girls club of former politicians has protected them all.

the list of real crimes are many... but the prevailing attitude of the partisan voters is that MY guy/gal did NOTHING WRONG, or it was "maybe just a few mistakes". And the other guy/gal is evil and should rot under the jail.
While the politicians themselves KNOW they all have dirt on their hands and usually make enough noise about the other side to please the voters while they never really do much by way of serious prosecution. Finally they all say "well it wouldn't do any good for the country to prosecute so in so... So lets all move forward..." .

So high profile politicians, D&R, get away with corruption, perjury, theft, torture, murders, illegal wars and a host of unconstitutional activity.
While if you or I commit a minor offense it's never forgotten or forgive by the justice system.

Instead of escaping to an alternate reality by declaring a pox on both your houses, it's important to recognize the egregious assault on the rule of law displayed in the Hillary Clinton exoneration. It's difficult to find another Federal scandal in history where a senior official showed such wanton disregard for the the law and Federal law enforcement blatantly conspired to exonerate her despite the overwhelming evidence of her guilt.

um huh, as i said, the partisan voter's replies like
"they did it worse than everyone else ever ever did it" "they are evil" and the "our side has done no wrong" as well?

Look I could post details of all of the full reality of both side's
"corruption, perjury, theft, torture, murders, illegal wars and a host of unconstitutional activity" but i'd suspect you'd only deny that the actions of the Rs were criminal, claim all kinds of "necessity" for the actions or legal exceptions and finally claim that some were "just mistakes" and/or add, as you've done here the assertion that it's "Not as Bad as ..." ... therefore excusable?

But hey lets make it real, with a few down to earth examples and simply questions,
Should bill Clinton have been or be tried for various crimes against women?
If he were Wal-Mart cashier would there be any question of a criminal trial of a guy with 4 to 12+ different women on the job accusing him of harassment and rape?
Now ask the same for Trump,
Trump walked into teen girls locker rooms and bragged about it. If your local high school coach did it would he get the job as Mayor of the city?
Would he have to appear in court over it?

If you can honestly answer those questions then you might be able to go further into the reality of how both sides also have been clearly guilty of various counts of 'corruption, perjury, theft, torture, murders, illegal wars and a host of unconstitutional activity...' that your average joe could not get out of prosecution for. that others in lower spots in gov't have in fact , in reality gone to jail for.

it's seem to me its a selective blindness that assumes one parties high officials actions never seem rise to level of prosecution, while the others are so vile that some are incredulous that they'd get away with it.

And please , to be clear, i'm not saying that they all have done exactly the same crimes. or that every senior official of both parties is a criminal. I'm saying the those i named and others have all committed crimes worthy of various prosecution.
Among them corruption, perjury, theft, torture, murders, illegal wars and a host of unconstitutional activity.

it's clear, if we're honest enough to look at the harsh and legal reality. And are willing to apply the law equally.
