Two tiers of justice in the United State judicial system won’t maintain the Republic. Those who are guilty of crimes, regardless of their position in society or age, should be held accountable for their actions.
Joe Biden escaped the heavy hammer of the justice system this week when the special counsel investigating him wimped out. The investigation found evidence of alleged crimes related to mishandling of classified documents yet defaulted to weak legal reasoning for not pursuing prosecution.
Excuses were made for Biden that he was too old and mentally incapable of being prosecuted. The special counsel acquitted him without even taking the evidence before a grand jury. All the while the same Department of Justice continued its all-out attack against former President Donald Trump for similar alleged crimes.
The news of Biden’s free pass from any prosecution sent Trump into a public rant. What has been done to him by Biden’s DOJ must be corrected.
From the Washington Examiner:
“The Biden Documents Case is 100 times different and more severe than mine,” the former president wrote. “I did nothing wrong, and I cooperated far more. What Biden did is outrageously criminal — He had 50 years of documents, 50 times more than I had, and ‘WILLFULLY RETAINED’ them. I was covered by the Presidential Records Act, Secret Service was always around, and GSA delivered the documents. Deranged Jack Smith should drop this Case immediately.”
Trump’s message was directed to special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation that has charged the former president with 40 felonies related to classified documents. This includes 32 counts of willful retention of national defense information and violations of the Espionage Act.
By contrast, special counsel Rober Hur said Biden’s actions of mishandling classified documents didn’t meet the standard of criminal conduct. He let Biden off the hook because, according to Hur, Biden has a faulty and failing memory. This could give a jury reasonable doubt, he argued, and make it difficult to convict Biden, who would be well into his 80s during a trial.
“We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” the special counsel wrote.
Biden claimed he cooperated fully with Hur’s “exhaustive investigation” and sat for interviews as requested.
“I just believed that’s what I owed the American people so they could know no charges would be brought and the matter closed,” Biden said.
The matter is far from closed, and Hur’s investigation should give fuel to Trump’s legal team in battling the politically motivated Smith case against him.
Trump pronounced Hur’s report proof of a “two-tiered system of justice and unconstitutional selective prosecution” and accused Biden of “election interference.”
Biden will go back to slurping ice cream and smelling the hair of children while Trump faces decades in prison. This two-tiered system from the DOJ will not hold up. The United States will collapse into legal turmoil if justice isn’t served fairly.
- Trump demanded Jack Smith end the classified documents case after Biden is cleared of charges.
- The former president hit back hard against the DOJ case that could land put in prison.
- A separate special counsel declared Biden was old and mentally not capable of standing trial.
