Trump’s Revenge Must be Served Cold and Justified

Some swamp dwellers including former acting FBI head Andrew McCabe are openly worried that, if he assumes the presidency once more, Donald Trump might lock them up.  Never mind that Trump never locked Hillary Clinton up, even though her crimes were apparent.

But is McCabe right to be worried? 

Trump does discuss retribution from time to timeWhy shouldn’t he?  Even if you don’t believe Trump is the victim of a witch hunt, which is hard to deny, maybe you subscribe to the oft-repeated maxim “nobody is above the law.”

Then what about 51 current and former members of the Intelligence Community signing a letter that Hunter Biden’s laptop was nothing more than Russian disinformation.  In fact, they interfered in an election, and they ought to be punished.

An order of Justice – served cold.

It would be wrong of trump to go willy-nilly after every political enemy.  For one thing, he’s so reviled by left-wing politicians and the left-wing media that it would be hard to ferret out all of them.  Trump’s revenge is well-earned and justified, but he must allow his Department of Justice slowly and surely to build cases against those who have broken the law.

Interfering in an election is a big-time crime, and so Trump’s DOJ ought to focus first on two main issues:  First the dirty Steele Dossier that Republicans started as opposition to Trump, but was picked up and made famous by the Hillary Clinton campaign.  It led to the Russian Collusion charges against trump that were debunked (a favorite work at CNN) by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.  This put Trump through a massive investigation and two impeachments.  CNN’s nightly “we’ve got him now” panels became insufferable.

“Lock her Up” – is it too late?

No.  It isn’t.  Hillary Clinton’s crimes ranging back to the original Whitewater Scandal in Arkansas have always gone unpunished. Most famously with then FBI Director James Comey explaining an airtight case to the American people, and then adding that no prosecutor would take the case.  This is what Joe Biden would call malarky.

Check the statute of limitations on Hillary’s crimes, especially with the Dossier and the illegal home-server, and then let the DOJ do its job.

The other main item is the letter signed by 51 current and former members of the Intelligence Community.

If they knew they were lying, that’s bad.  If they didn’t realize it, then they’re not qualified to hold positions on CNN (former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper) and MSNBC (former CIA Director John Brennan).  The issue here can be put as a question:  How can this not be election interference?

And don’t forget that current Secretary of State (under Biden) Antony Blinken had a part in this.

CNN and other left-wing media famously refused to cover Hunter Biden stories, often citing the 51 signatories of the letter as justification.  Perhaps some network and newspaper CEOs ought to be brought to justice for their part in interfering with the 2020 election.

There were some famous liars in Congress as well.

Who can forget U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff’s promise that he had personally seen evidence of Trump’s Russian collusion?

Or Rep. Eric Swalwell literally having sex with the Chinese spy known as Fang Fang?  Some of this is legal, and some may not be.  Again, a good, impartial Department of Justice should take a look.

Then, there’s Joe. 

 It’s time to get to the bottom of the Biden Family Business.

If Hunter was trading on his dad’s name, with Biden bother James, and setting aside money for “The Big Guy,” identified as Joe Biden by former partner Tony Bobulinski, then the DOJ should investigate and indict if called for.  Merrick Garland is a politicized attorney general. And he’s not going to go after the Bidens.

Don’t forget that Robert Hur, the special counsel, dismissed Joe’s classified documents case as a matter not worthy of prosecuting because Joe is old and demented.  That’s no reason to drop it, and everyone knows that.  Hillary got off on the server case by being merely “incompetent,” and Joe got off on the document case by being demented.  It’s time to revisit both cases.

I realize I’m just scratching the surface here.

Lois Lerner never paid a price for weaponizing the Internal Revenue Service.  Officials in Pennsylvania have not paid for flouting their own state constitution to change voting rules, using the Pandemic as an excuse.  That’s also election interference.

The Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters from the summer of 2020 have never been prosecuted with the zeal that was directed at the January 6 rioters.  That needs to change.

And I could do an entire column about Dr. Anthony Fauci and his lies and bad COVID advice, and whether royalties paid for vaccine research were on the up and up.  A Trump DOJ could go after former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for insider trading – and who know who else, from both parties.

There are lot of people in government who have done lots of bad things, and a Trump DOJ might do well to take a look.  Trump should keep this in mind:  There is a difference in people that opposed him politically and those who broke the law.  The latter group deserves what they get and ought to be investigated and charged accordingly.

Trump’s revenge will backfire if he orders his AG to seek out people like Liz Cheney, Fani Willis, Alvin Bragg, and Leticia James – all obvious Trump enemies.  Anything and everything a Trump administration does in the way of retribution must be done under the Constitution and in accordance with the law.  It must be carefully conceived, well thought-out, and conducted with full transparency.

As they say, revenge is a dish best served cold.
