Indict Trump Aide Nauta? Why Not Liars Comey, McCabe, Clinton First?

Walt Nauta is a 10-year veteran of the Navy and served as an aide to former President Donald Trump each out and in of workplace.

Particular counsel Jack Smith has now indicted him for allegedly “making false statements in interviews with the FBI.” The indictment’s subtext is that Nauta refused to cooperate with—and switch state’s proof to—the particular counsel in its efforts to convict Trump.

However why cease the indictments with a person who loyally served and adopted the orders of the previous president of the US, was a Navy veteran, and a hard-working immigrant from Guam?

Are there not far greater fish to fry to remind People that justice is blind?

In spite of everything, when Smith introduced his indictments of Trump, he lectured America on the rule of legislation and the cherished notion that nobody is above it.

So, allow us to begin with the previous interim director of the FBI itself, Andrew McCabe.

McCabe admittedly lied 4 instances about his illegally leaking delicate data to witnesses and mishandling categorised data.

Have these crimes abruptly ceased being felonies?

Or is it now the coverage of the US authorities that an FBI director can lie with impunity, and leak, and mishandle delicate categorised data?

But, Nauta could also be despatched to jail whereas McCabe will proceed to earn a advantageous wage at CNN as a paid “knowledgeable” to deplore … what precisely? What McCabe is aware of greatest from his personal expertise with the deed— the “mishandling of categorised data.”

Nauta reportedly is being indicted for claiming he “didn’t know” what he supposedly did know in relation to the motion of the president’s papers.

His denial was proffered with almost the precise phrasing that one other former FBI director, James Comey, used beneath oath when he stonewalled congressional inquisitors on 245 events.

Was the ex-FBI director ever indicted for feigning ignorance or amnesia earlier than Congress?

Did Nauta ever file a personal, and certain categorised, conservation he had with the president of the US within the White Home, after which leak it to The New York Occasions?

That’s exactly what James “Larger Loyalty” Comey bragged about doing.

Most lately, Secretary of Vitality Jennifer Granholm admitted that she, too, lately lied whereas beneath oath to Congress when she denied proudly owning personal shares.

Was Nauta’s “I don’t know” a higher menace to the rule of legislation and the safety of the republic than the lies of the secretary of vitality? She intentionally misled Congress about potential conflicts of curiosity involving her inventory portfolio.

Then we come to President Joe Biden. He has sworn that he by no means mentioned enterprise along with his son, Hunter Biden, at present beneath suspicion for tax improprieties and leveraging overseas governments by promoting them supposed Biden affect.

But loads of witnesses have contradicted Joe Biden’s assertion. Pictures even reveal him aspect by aspect along with his son’s enterprise associates.

For almost 20 years, Senator, Vice President, personal citizen, and now President Biden has hid the very fact he unlawfully took categorised paperwork residence and moved them about in numerous unsecured areas.

Was Biden’s motion of categorised paperwork for the previous 20 years much less egregious than what Nauta is accused of getting achieved?

Was Biden’s Corvette storage safer than the closets and bogs contained in the Mar-a-Lago gated property?

Biden’s legal professionals, after almost twenty years, solely got here ahead due to the media hype surrounding the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago in the hunt for categorised paperwork.

Is there some legislation that states {that a} senator, vice chairman, and president can improperly take away categorised paperwork, transfer them about to numerous unsecured areas, and keep away from the form of felony indictments now going through Nauta and Trump?

Allow us to finish with the best exemptions of all; particularly, these accorded to Hillary Clinton.

She has variously dedicated the next seemingly main felonies:

  • One, she illegally transmitted categorised data involving nationwide safety over her personal unsecure server whereas serving as secretary of state.
  • Two, she destroyed each electronic mail data and communication units that have been beneath authorities subpoena.
  • Three, she was untruthful about each the use and destruction of mentioned subpoenaed objects.
  • 4, she illegally employed a overseas nationwide, Christopher Steele, to work on her marketing campaign as an opposition researcher.
  • 5, she conspired to disseminate false paperwork amongst prime authorities intelligence and investigatory companies in addition to the media for the only real objective of destroying her presidential opponent Trump and thereby warping the 2016 election course of.

And?

Clinton—like self-confessed liars or dissimulators John Brennan, former CIA director; James Clapper, former Director of Nationwide Intelligence; and former FBI administrators Comey and McCabe—was exempted from all authorized jeopardy. She, too, continues to monetize her previous notorieties and controversies.

The very last thing this nation wants is one other bottled-piety lecture on the rule of legislation from particular counsel Smith, Biden, and the array of admitted mendacity former excessive authorities officers.

They, not Nauta, needs to be ashamed.
