Why Do We Need A Bill To Hold Government Officials Accountable
Is justice supposed to be blind or not?
How sad is it that a United States Congressmen has to bring up a bill that would force our government to treat all of us equal?
Florida Republican Congressmen Matt Gaetz has introduced a bill titled the “Justice For All Act” which would require equal punishment for those who have lied or lie to Congress, no matter who they are.
Those people would include former National Intelligence Director James Clapper, former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former IRS manager Lois Lerner and of course former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It has been proven that these people have lied under oath, or to have knowingly provided false information to Congress and faced no punishment.
On Congressmen Gaetz website he informed us of a 2007 essay in the Quinnipiac Law Review, by a Mr. P.J. Meitl who wrote that:
almost no one is prosecuted for lying to Congress…only six people have been convicted of perjury or related charges in relation to Congress in the last sixty years
Congressmen Gaetz was quoted stating:
Unfortunately, it often seems that we have a two-tiered justice system at work; certain people have the book thrown at them, while others face no consequences at all for their behavior. This is unfair and wrong, and I hope to correct this with my resolution
If you are going to charge one person for lying to Congress or providing false information to Congress you must charge all people for the same crimes. What type of kangaroo court and investigation is the DOJ and Special Prosecutor Mueller running?
How do these establishment people expect us to have any faith in our government and their agencies if they do not apply the law fairly?
