The Washington Times reported recently that “Reynaldo Regis, 53, of Fort Washington, Maryland, searched classified databases without authorization during the time he worked as a CIA contractor He then copied the classified data into his personal notebooks he stored at his home.”
I and the rest of America saw an incredibly similar set of facts beginning two years ago. I am of course referring to Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized and grossly negligent use of her personal server at her private home to receive and retain classified emails — in violation of the law. During the investigation she had the server “bleached.” If that is not powerful demonstrative evidence of her consciousness of guilt, nothing is.
If the Department of Justice does not perform a competent investigation into these allegations of criminal conduct and seek an indictment for violating the U.S. Code, Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions must be fired along with the incompetent FBI agents who appear to have deliberately tanked the “investigation.” This highlights the different standards the justice system has — one for the average citizen, and another for the rich, powerful and politically connected.
We once had a system where everyone, rich and poor alike, was equal under the law. It seems that is gone now, but it is not too late to reinstitute it. We must do it for this nation and its people.
