At a campaign rally in Novi, Michigan Friday evening, Donald Trump ‘demanded’ that President Obama pledge not to “pardon Clinton and her co-conspirators” if any charges were filed related to the email scandal.
Last week, the Justice Department granted some form of immunity to Cheryl Mills, a chief of staff for Clinton at the State Department, and other Clinton aides, including lawyer Heather Samuelson, then-State Department information resources Director John Bentel, and former agency IT specialist Bryan Pagliano.
Clinton campaign strategist Joel Benenson defended the action saying that such deals are “fairly routine” and emphasized the point that Mills received only “limited immunity.
How can Benenson say that such deals are ‘fairly routine’ when this is the first time in American history that a Secretary of State, or anyone in a position of this magnitude has committed crimes to this extent.
What Hillary, Mills and the others have done is unprecedented, and immunity should not be granted to any of them.
We are talking about a woman who is seeking the highest office in the nation, and they are handing out immunity passes to people who have relevant information pertaining to Clinton’s ability, or in this case inability, to be president.
