After reading a comprehensive roundup of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal by National Review’s Andrew C. McCarthy, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin declared on Facebook that, “A President Hillary Clinton must be impeached.” Levin went through the reasons why.
Levin is exactly right. McCarthy lays out why it would have been an easy prosecution for the Department of Justice, if they weren’t so politically motivated regarding the Democratic presidential nominee.
The question arose because the “(C)” designation — applicable to classified information at the confidential level — turned up in at least one of Clinton’s personal e-mails. Those would be the e-mails that, she repeatedly insisted, never, ever contained classified information. Or at least, that’s what she insisted until government agencies confessed that hundreds of the e-mails do contain classified information. Then Clinton’s “never, ever” tale morphed into the more narrowly tailored lie that there were no e-mails “marked classified.” Alas, that claim could not withstand examination of the e-mails, during which the “(C)” markings were found . . . whereupon the explanation underwent more, shall we say, refining. Thus the final, astonishing claim that she didn’t know what the markings meant, along with the laugh-out-loud whopper that maybe it was all about alphabetical order.
Yeah, that’s the ticket!
In case you’re keeping score: When a person being prosecuted for a crime changes her story multiple times, as if she were playing Twister (kids, ask your parents), the prosecutor gets to prove each of the evolving lies at the trial. As you’d imagine, juries grasp that the truth doesn’t need an editor. That’s why people whose explanations can’t keep up with the evidence are pretty much a lock to get convicted.
If Clinton wins the presidency next month, and the Electoral College confirms that result in December, impeachment is the only remedy left to bring Clinton to justice. But it would require the Congress to actually take its role under the Constitution seriously — something that, lately, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Speakers John Boehner and Paul Ryan have failed to do.
While impeachment is warranted, for Hillary Clinton’s crimes, the feckless leaders of the “opposition” will undoubtedly say that the “voters have spoken” that they knew about the illegality and elected Clinton anyway. This is why the nation is in need of a true opposition party.
Mark Levin has promised to expand upon his thinking on Monday’s LevinTV episode.
