FINALLY: Clinton Lawyers Probed for Destroying Evidence
What do you get when you cross a bad politician with a crooked lawyer? Chelsea Clinton. And boy is Hillary Clinton a crooked lawyer.
However, she isn’t the only crooked lawyer hanging around the Clinton camp. Perhaps we are about to find out just how crooked, as some of Clinton’s crooked staff weren’t given immunity from crooked former FBI Director James Comey. Now, Clinton and her attorneys could face disbarment.
In Maryland, a Circuit Court judge ordered the state bar to open an investigation into the law firm. Thus, the three lawyers who allegedly deleted thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails will be scrutinized. And according to to the Maryland attorney initiating the investigation, this isn’t just a right wing frivolous claim.
According to the Daily Wire:
“There are allegations of destroying evidence,” Judge Harris said at a hearing on Monday. He said that investigations must be conducted if the allegations have merit.
Lawyer Ty Clevenger, who has doggedly pursued sanctions against Clinton and her legal team, brought the case against the Clinton lawyers. He is seeking to have Clinton and her attorneys suspended or disbarred.
Clevenger contends that the lawyers helped Clinton destroy emails from a secret server the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee kept in her New York home. While Hillary turned over thousands of emails, she also destroyed some 33,000, saying they were private and not related to her work as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State.
“My thesis is: If you are a politically prominent attorney, you are held to a different standard,” Clevenger said after the hearing, according to the The Baltimore Sun. “I’ve seen this in Texas, California … I chose this case because I knew people would pay attention.”
Of course, the bar counsel tried to blow off the lawsuit.
No surprise here. Any time someone tries to hold a Clinton accountable for their actions, the Clinton’s stonewall or somebody has to die. In this case, they chose the former, and attempted to stonewall, as the Attorney General called the lawsuit frivolous and asked for a dismissal.
According to court documents, the bar counsel responded accordingly:
Clevenger holds “no personal knowledge of the allegations presented in your correspondence, nor are you a personally aggrieved client or party possession material information that would assist this office in reviewing such allegations.”
The bar counsel dismissed Clevenger’s complaint, prompting him to ask a judge to force the bar counsel to investigate the allegations.
Leftists assumed this would be another moment of sweeping Hillary’s sins under the rug. However, the judge didn’t agree with the Attorney General’s motion to dismiss. In fact, Judge Ronald A. Silkworth ruled Clevenger has every right to request an investigation as Maryland law allows any person to file a bar grievance.
Judge Harris also ignored the arguments for dismissal. “I just think this is a rather easy decision at this point,” he said. “The court is ordering bar counsel to investigate.”
Even when she admits to mishandling her email account, Clinton still clings to finger-pointing.
“The most important of the mistakes I made was using personal email,” she acknowledged in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning ahead of a book launch.
“I said it before, I’ll say it again, that was my responsibility. It was presented in such a negative way, and I never could get out from under it and it never stopped,” Mrs. Clinton said, once again blaming others for her woes.
Why shouldn’t we believe Hillary Clinton?
After all, she’s very forthcoming. As we reported a while back, it only took a lawsuit to get the information Clinton promised.
Clinton and staffers both actively participated in pay for play access, and it’s clear. If any investigation should be re-opened, it’s this one.
As Judicial Watch reported,
Judicial Watch today released 448 pages of documents from the U.S. Department of State revealing new incidents of Huma Abedin, deputy chief of staff to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, providing special State Department treatment to major donors to the Clinton Foundation and political campaigns.
The heavily redacted documents from Abedin’s non-government account include an email from Hillary Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, to Abedin revealing that he acted as a go-between for a Clinton Foundation donor, Richard Park. And they reveal Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band instructing Abedin to “show love” to Clinton donor Andrew Liveris.
The documents included six Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 439 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department, and further contradicting a statement by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails had been turned over to the State Department.
The only way America has access to these latest emails was through a court order obtained by Judicial Watch.
Clinton has no plans to own her mistakes.
In fact, as we already reported, she has a plea deal in place. As soon as the DOJ started digging deeper, Hillary cut a deal to keep herself out of prison.
Obviously, disbarment isn’t as satisfying as seeing Clinton go to jail for her crimes. However, it would be a step in the right direction. It would at least send a clear message that Hillary’s shenanigans won’t be over-looked any longer.
