On May 29 2016, Representative Norma J. Torres gave her public endorsement of presumptive Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.
On July 5 2016, FBI director Jim Comey laid out the case for the prosecution of Hillary Clinton under the Espionage Act, Title 18 of the U.S. Criminal Code, § 793, paragraph (f). Director Comey concluded that Clinton violated the law after discovering the facts of the case found during an FBI investigation. The FBI found, as a matter of fact, that “classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on that [Clinton’s] personal system in violation of a federal statute that makes it a felony to mishandle classified information either intentionally OR in a grossly negligent way; and a second statute making it a misdemeanor to knowingly remove classified information from appropriate systems and storage facilities.”
Director Comey again said himself, “There is evidence that they [Hillary Clinton and her colleagues] were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” According to the facts discovered by FBI and the explicit wording of the statute, the FBI claims that Hillary Clinton broke the law over one hundred times; however, due to her status as a Washington DC insider and elite she is skating free and avoiding prosecution.
I call on Representative Norma J. Torres to rescind her support of Hillary Clinton immediately. Hillary Clinton’s recent evasion of justice is revealing of the corrupt and snobbish culture pervading Washington DC that views certain high-profile elites to be above the rule of law. The United States is a nation of laws—and as such our public officials must insure that the sanctity of the law never succumbs to the wickedness and caprice of leading individuals. In this country, there shall be one rule of Justice for rich and poor; for the favorite amongst the powerful and connected, and the common Countryman working nine to five.
With equality to all, and special immunities towards none—laws made by common consent must not be trampled on by powerful individuals. Hillary Clinton’s immunity from the law is an assault on you. It is an assault on our way of life, our civil society, and our Constitutional Republic. Who exactly does Clinton think she is? She is no queen; she has no special grant to exist outside the rule of law! Clinton’s character is marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, and she is unfit to be the president of a free people.
Norma J. Torres’ continued support of Hillary Clinton would show that Torres finds nothing wrong with Clinton’s lawlessness. Like a dishonorable suppliant prostrated before the throne of a monarch, or a bumbling yes-man in the imperial court of Caesar, Torres’ continued support of Clinton would be self-seeking, disrespectful to her constituents, and down right embarrassing. If Norma J. Torres does not immediately rescind her endorsement of Hillary Clinton, how can she possibly be deserving of your sacred trust?
On January 17 2016, Hillary Clinton said, “No one is too big for jail.” Representative Torres, do you agree with this remark? If you agree, by the commands of good sense, and the solemnity of the oath you took upon entering Congress, you have an obligation to the People of California’s 35th Congressional District to immediately rescind your endorsement of Hillary Clinton.
