Hillary Should Step Down
John Kass writes in the Chicago Tribune that if Democrats truly care about America and their constituents, they need to make Hillary Clinton step down from the Presidential race. “Has America become so numb by the decades of lies and cynicism oozing from Clinton Inc. that it could elect Hillary Clinton as president, even after Friday’s FBI announcement that it had reopened an investigation of her emails while secretary of state?” He asks.
Kass says the most moral thing Democrats could do is have Tim Kaine replace her, and add someone else as his Vice President. Bernie Sanders, maybe? “They would demand that Mrs. Clinton step down, immediately, and let her vice presidential nominee, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, stand in her place,” he says. “Democrats should say, honestly, that with a new criminal investigation going on into events around her home-brew email server from the time she was secretary of state, having Clinton anywhere near the White House is just not a good idea.”
But what will Hillary do?
She’s going to use all the excuses and plays that her husband had during his tenure. Do you remember Travelgate, Monicagate, all the other Clinton scandals? Kass says, none of that matters for the Clintons. “For Hillary and Bill Clinton, it has always been about power, about the Clinton Restoration and protecting fortunes already made by selling nothing but political influence.”
During this presidential campaign, Kass says, Americans were confronted with a two-tiered system of federal justice: one for standards for the Clintons and one for the peasants.
He concludes by saying, “The Clintons weren’t skilled merchants. They weren’t traders or manufacturers. The Clintons never produced anything tangible. They had no science, patents or devices to make them millions upon millions of dollars. All they had to sell, really, was influence. And they used our federal government to leverage it. If a presidential election is as much about the people as it is about the candidates, then we’ll learn plenty about ourselves in the coming days, won’t we?”
