Word for word from the Cornell Law Library

Former United States Attorney General Michael Mukasey tells MSNBC that not only is Hillary Clinton's private email server illegal, it "disqualifies" her from holding any federal office.

Such as, say, President of the United States. Very, specifically, it points to one federal law, Title 18. Section 2071.

For those of us who do not have United States Code committed to memory, here's what it says:
“(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.”

Yes, it explicitly states "shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States."

Shouldn't voters know that? The media won't tell them. So, it's up to us. Can you help hold Hillary accountable? Pass this on, please.

Now!! Does anyone believe that this will make a difference ??

Just a note……

Now if Hillary is allowed to run for an office of any kind, it will show us that the Washington D.C. establishment is, so much, more corrupt than we thought.

I just don't understand why she would bring DWS closer when she's trying to clean up her image. Maybe she's not trying to clean up her image. Maybe she just wants it to be as dirty as possible.

Hard for Hillary 2016

Clinton has gotten away with doing whatever she pleases for decades at this point. She doesn't understand how things look at an outside look. When you have constant "yes-men" around you and never face consequences for your actions you turn out like her, or Johnny Manziel.

But I gotta correct you on your metaphor!

If you're going to conflate 'dirty' with 'martini', you've *got to* add a little olive ... juice! ;)

I'm going to take the US Attorney's Office analysis of this over yours.

You are correct. I don't drink, so I wasn't totally accurate.

Ohhh, I hope she is so reckless that she will get skewered! ;)

Of course you would....anything to make her look less criminal. :roll:

Not being convicted of anything by anyone, such a law will not bar Clinton from a damned thing.

Well, I no longer drink - and it's due in part to an earlier over-indulgences of *too many* dirty martinis back in the day! :mrgreen:

Then of course, there's this somewhat different Dirty Martini, who may or may not be to one's taste:

She doesn't need to clean up her image. She just needs to buy off anyone in her way.

Since the law doesn't specifically include her name, she is exempt.

If you don't believe me, ask FBI director Comey.

Michael Mukasey later admitted that this would not be the case.

Not that it makes what Clinton did any better.

Yep...and she does...or has them eliminated!

It was never my intent, to see him run unopposed...

Well, dirty martinis are usually thought to be an acquired taste! :lamo

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

This is interesting information and it would be relevant in a functioning democracy. You are referring to the People's law, not the law of the wealthy, privileged and powerful. As such the law does not apply to Hillary Clinton. Just who do you think would enforce that law?

I think you are probably right about that Bob. She's gotten away with so much for so long, that she probably does feel invincible, feels that she's too big to jail.
