For those of you who still think Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal is no big deal and just a Republican witch hunt, let me acquaint you with the following federal criminal code on “Crimes and Criminal Procedure.”
U.S. Code, Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 101, Section 2071, paragraphs a & b, states:
Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 795
; Pub. L. 101–510, div. A, title V, § 552(a)
, Nov. 5, 1990
, 104 Stat. 1566
; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(I)
, Sept. 13, 1994
, 108 Stat. 2147
[Bold, my emphasis.]
Of course Hillary Clinton is not the only one guilty of transgressing this code of conduct. Think, for instance the Obama administration refusing to disclose information and documents about the “Fast & Furious” gun running scandal with Mexican cartels. Or Obama and Nancy Pelosi refusing to allow the Affordable Care Act to be read before taking a vote in which all Democrats voted for but not one Republican voted for it. Or the refusal of the Obama administration to disclose the truth behind the Benghazi massacre or the infamous Iran nuclear deal. Over the last seven years, such a list has become almost endless with new abuses being discovered every day.
Be sure to pass this on. America’s future is at stake.
