John Podesta threatened the department of justice against investigating Hillary Clinton in his November 15th Washington Post article. Hillary Clinton said that calls for the justice department to investigate her would be “such an abuse of power” and that any investigation into her actions as secretary of state or questionable deals by the Clinton foundation would be in her words “like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime.”
Podesta also sneered at the idea of an investigation into himself or Hillary Clinton by the Justice Department, claiming “This is what authoritarians and tyrants do. They use the instruments of state power, particularly the wrath of the prosecutor, to rain opprobrium down upon citizens with whom they disagree.” He insists that if the DOJ, under the new administration moves forward with appointing a Special Counsel to investigate Clinton or any of her associates, it will spell ‘dark days’, a weakened rule of law, and the country will be ‘in further peril.’
I’m sure the thousands of voters calling for a serious investigation into both Clinton and Podesta would disagree.
Podesta insists that pressure is being put on him as a distraction from the investigation by Robert Mueller, although he failed to mention in the same article that his own brother, Democrat party ally Tony Podesta is also under fire in the same investigation, as just last week Tony Podesta quit the Podesta group, with his replacement Kimberly Fritts quitting the company just days later. In an interview with politco, Podesta group staff say that they expect many more to leave the firm as Tony Podesta’s name has become “a scarlet letter”.
