House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan should know better. It would be best if you did not have a battle of wits with someone totally unarmed. It’s not sporting. But, Jordan joined Dana Bash on her far-left Loony Tunes show. The topic of the day is the indictment of President Trump. Bash must have thought this would be an easy touch for her, but she got so flustered she cut him off, which is in the Democratic playbook.
The charges against Trump include 31 counts of an alleged violation of the Espionage Act or willfully retaining national security documents. Some of the other charges lodged against him include “conspiracy to obstruct justice,” one count of “withholding a document or record,” one count of corruptly concealing a document or record,” one count of “concealing a document in a deferral investigation,” one count of “scheme to conceal” and one count of “false statements and representations.”
Bash asked Jordan:
“I want to read something that you said about Hillary Clinton’s email server in 2016. You wrote in an opinion article, ‘Whether through incompetence or willful disregard for security protocol, Hilary Clinton jeopardized national security for personal gain.’ Why do you think this behavior is horrible, when Democrats mishandle classified information, allegedly, but there is nothing wrong at all when Republicans do it?”
“You are missing the key – you’re missing the fundamental distinction. She was secretary of state. President Trump was president of the United States. The Supreme Court decision in Navy v. Egan wasn’t about the secretary of state, the Constitution doesn’t say, ‘Oh, the secretary of state can classify and control access to national security information.’ It says the president. That is the key distinction. But the left doesn’t care. They are so determined to get President Trump, they’ve been going after him since before he ran when they took a dossier they knew was false, took it to a secret court, got a warrant and spied on four American citizens associated with his campaign. It has continued to this day. Anyone with common sense can see that.”
“If that was the case about Hillary Clinton, then why didn’t the Trump Justice Department, during the four years they were in office, prosecute her? And I should say there is no evidence there was actually classified emails ”
“President Trump is not like President Biden. President Trump doesn’t go after his political enemies. He knew what it would do to the country. President Biden and the Left and the Democrats do not care.”
Hillary was never raided at four AM by thirty heavily armed FBI agents, She Was not arrested, and was never tried even though former FBI Director James Comey did say there was “evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information.”
Bill Clinton took classified recordings home with him and he kept them in a safe place, his sock drawer. The judge lets Clinton go saying that as president he had the right to retain those tapes/ The judge was none other than Judge Amy Berman Jackson.
