(National Sentinel) Democratic Lawlessness: There really are two systems of “justice” in America today, and the Left is making it clear which side of that system they are on.
Hint: It’s not the correct side. But what’s maddening and frustrating to tens of millions of Americans is that they keep getting away with it.
And of course, when you’re a celebrity on and of the Left like Rosie O’Donnell, there’s definitely a second set of rules — and when those rules are broken, the punishment isn’t too severe if you didn’t mean to break them.
Hillary Clinton, flat out, should be wearing prison stripes for her serial violations of The Espionage Act via her trafficking in classified material while conducting official business as Secretary of State on an unsecured email server.
Obama national security advisor Susan Rice and State Dept. official Susan Powell absolutely should have been indicted for improperly unmasking hundreds of American citizens for purely political reasons — just to undermine President Donald J. Trump’s campaign.
Former Secretary of State John Kerry should have already been arrested by federal agents for violations of the Logan Act after reports noted he has been consulting with an American enemy — Iran — as a private citizen, in a bid to salvage the so-called “nuclear deal.”
And Left-wing actress/comedian Rosie O’Donnell ought to be sitting in a booking room at a local FBI office on orders from the Federal Election Commission following serial violations of campaign finance laws.
You may recall that in December, as the vote neared in the Senate for the Trump-backed GOP tax reform bill, O’Donnell took to Twitter to bribe a pair of Republican senators — Jeff Flake and Susan Collins — to vote “no.”
“So how about this…i promise to give 2 million dollars to senator susan collins and 2 million to senator jeff flake…if they vote NO…” she tweeted. “DM me susan…DM me jeff…no s**t…2 million…cash…each.”
They never took her up on the offer and the tax reform measure, as we know now, passed by the narrowest of margins (51 votes).
But the offer alone was a felony based on a little statute called “18 U.S. Code § 201 – Bribery of public officials and witnesses” which states:
- (1) the term “public official” means Member of Congress, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner, either before or after such official has qualified, or an officer or employee or person acting for or on behalf of the United States, or any department, agency or branch of Government thereof, including the District of Columbia, in any official function, under or by authority of any such department, agency, or branch of Government, or a juror
- directly or indirectly, corruptly gives, offers or promises anything of value to any public official or person who has been selected to be a public official, or offers or promises any public official or any person who has been selected to be a public official to give anything of value to any other person or entity, with intent—
- to influence any official act
Notice the statute says persons need only make the offer to be in violation.
But as is so often the case in the Jeff Sessions-run Justice Department, nothing happened to O’Donnell.
Now, however, it’s been revealed that her campaign contributions to Democrats have gone far over the legal limits.
As reported by the New York Post, O’Donnell substantially surpassed the legal donation limit of $2,700 to at least five Democratic candidates over the past year. In all, filings show she gave a combined $5,400 in over-the-limit contributions. She claimed to the Post in an email that there was “nothing nefarious” about the excessive donations, adding she just ‘assumed’ that campaigns would return excessive funds.
But then why would she use five different New York addresses and four variations of her name to make these excessive contributions?
The thing is, it doesn’t matter if O’Donnell uses the excuse James Comey/Hillary Clinton criminal mishandling of classified emails excuse — that she ‘didn’t intend’ to violate campaign finance laws.
She apparently did violate them, and pleading ignorance doesn’t cut it.
So why hasn’t she been perp-walked to a jail cell yet?
