“We believe in the rule of law. That’s what our country is about, and no person is above the law,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told “Today” show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie during a TV interview Tuesday in an attempt to justify the unprecedented FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s Palm Beach home.
If that’s the case — that we’re all “equal” under the law, as Pelosi says — what penalties will her husband, Paul Pelosi, face for allegedly drunk driving?
In May, the speaker’s husband was arrested and charged with driving under the influence in Napa Valley. “The DUI report alleges that Pelosi’s eyes were ‘red/watery’ and he was ‘unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath,’” Newsweek reported. “His blood alcohol level was 0.082.”
It’s illegal to drive with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or above in California, where the penalty for a first offense drunk-driving conviction could be six months in prison in addition to fines. If Paul Pelosi skates, or gets a wrist-slap, then her phony musings about equal justice ring hollow.
And what about President Joe Biden’s wayward son Hunter? The FBI has been in possession of his “laptop from hell” for years, but despite reported evidence of alleged crimes the first son may have committed, he hasn’t been arrested or subjected to unannounced pre-dawn intimidation raids by dozens of armed FBI agents like what shockingly took place to Trump and his family.
“The laptop was seized by the FBI in 2019 as part of a federal probe that reportedly encompasses suspected tax fraud, money laundering and violations of foreign lobbying laws tied to Hunter Biden’s controversial overseas business dealings, many of which took place while his dad was vice president under former President Barack Obama,” reported the New York Post.
But that’s not all. There’s also widely disseminated photos from Hunter Biden’s laptop of alleged illegal-drug possession, graphic escapades with escorts that may have violated sex trafficking laws and shady dealings with foreign entities jeopardizing US national security. Yet three years later, still no indictments.
On Tuesday, Rep. Mary Miller (R-Ill.) tweeted, “If TODAY the FBI does not raid the homes of the Biden family members who took payments from Chinese communist officials, Moscow officials, and Ukrainian officials while holding ‘10% for the Big Guy,’ then we have conclusive proof of two systems of justice.”
And what about all the dirty cops at the highest echelons of the FBI and Department of Justice involved in the debunked “Russia Collusion” hoax — the fabricated, five-alarm conspiracy theory predicated on bogus opposition research used to try to stop Trump from being elected in 2016? When that failed, the FBI launched politically charged investigations to derail the Trump administration.
The “Get Trump” cabal at the FBI/DOJ misled the FISA court to spy on the Donald Trump’s campaign, an FBI lawyer doctored evidence, the devious Deep State colluded with complicit media in smearing the leader of the Republican Party. Are they above the law?
Hillary Clinton was never held accountable for her role in the genesis of the “Russia Hoax” or the unauthorized server containing classified information in her home while President Barack Obama’s secretary of state. Nor was Team Hillary charged with the destruction of over 30,000 classified emails and devices her camp reportedly destroyed with hammers, BleachBit and other methods.
There’s a dangerously corrupt dual justice system in America today where if one’s a Democrat, they’re often treated with kid gloves by DOJ versus the brass knuckles used against conservatives.
This cannot stand. If millions of Americans don’t trust the Department of Justice to enforce the law equally and fairly, regardless of one’s political affiliation, our country will continue to implode.
Congress must fire and/or impeach corrupt leadership at the FBI and DOJ and all bad actors that have violated our trust, drastically increase oversight of these broken agencies and reform them top to bottom. Not a moment too soon.
