I do agree that there are people who never get punished for their crimes and that’s heartbreaking for victims left picking up the pieces.
However. Making broad statements or generalizations feels like it’s shifting the focus away from very specific people who have been convicted of very specific crimes under this administration. Manafort was actually arrested. He’s got a mugshot and everything. And then he was convicted day before yesterday.
Sure, they’re always be corruption when money or power’s involved but I’m talking current events here. Hillary’s email server is old news. And she’s not president. She didn’t win. Trump’s president now. I don’t know about anybody else but I think our nation’s president and related campaign officials, advisors, etc. should be held to the highest, utmost standards.
I don’t have a solid political affiliation or allegiance. Some of my good friends voted Republican. I’m more interested in morally good people and I think our president should be someone people look up to, look to for guidance.
Maggie wrote a letter to Obama once, saying how proud she was of him. I couldn’t imagine her writing a letter to Trump. Right now politically, it feels like a disgrace.
Michael Cohen, Trump’s lawyer, was out paying off porn stars to keep quiet during a married man’s campaign. Real class act. He surrendered to the FBI, plead guilty to eight charges. This was also on Monday. His trial is for next month so I guess he’s not a convict yet.
And yes, I do feel like Bill Clinton disgraced the White House, too.
Hillary was investigated numerous times, including by subcommittees helmed by members of the Republican party. She was never charged, much less convicted of crimes. Therefore she isn’t a criminal. Even if she was a criminal, I can’t see what that has to do with the Trump campaign. There were qualified Republicans during the primary who didn’t receive the nomination. Had it been public knowledge that Trump’s campaign officials were criminals then, the Republican convention might have provided a different outcome.
I’m not claiming to know your political affiliation. Derailing the conversation by making it about Hillary is missing the point. As Travis said, she’s never been convicted of anything, nor anyone on her staff. The fact is these people are found guilty. Bringing up hypotheticals about the Clintons is irrelevant considering these 5 people have been convicted. It’s speculation and pointless.
Just because nobody pressed charges doesn’t mean she didn’t do anything. I think we all know not everyone gets in trouble for he things they do. The lack of pressing charges on shooters in Chicago is a perfect example.
