A recent run of questionable courtroom decisions has many Americans realizing what some knew all along: a two-tier justice system exists in this country: one system for elites and another for the rest of America. It may have started with the totally-off-the-rails Russia collusion case, but now you see G-men and elites skate on a regular basis.
From Just The News…
The argument first surfaced among conservatives during the Russia collusion scandal when a defendant like Trump National Security Advisor Mike Flynn was pressured to plead guilty to lying to the FBI while the bureau’s then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was allowed to escape any punishment for allegedly lying during an internal investigation. McCabe even got the pension he was stripped of restored.
But that argument has long since escaped the boundaries of the Russia case to other investigations far and wide in America.
For instance, anger and disbelief boiled over last month in the Olympic gymnast community when DOJ announced it wasn’t taking any action against two ex-FBI agents who botched the Larry Nassar sex abuse case, despite evidence they had given false answers to the department’s internal probe.
Sheepishly, the DOJ insisted the get-out-of-jail pass for the former G-men “does not in any way reflect a view that the investigation of Nassar was handled as it should have been, nor in any way reflect approval or disregard of the conduct of the former agents.”
“The continued failure by the Department of Justice to criminally charge the FBI agents, U.S.A. Gymnastics and the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee officials who conspired to cover up the largest sex abuse scandal in the history of sport is incomprehensible,” attorney John Manly said.
The latest “swamp thing” involves two New York lawyers who were accused of using Molotov cocktails in 2020 during the George Floyd protests in New York City.
“The two lawyers were given a ‘generous’ new plea deal after being accused of throwing a Molotov cocktail into a police vehicle in New York. They were facing domestic terrorism charges and the possibility of 30 years in jail. Now, however, they will be allowed to withdraw the earlier plea and instead plead guilty to conspiring to assemble the Molotov cocktail and damage the New York Police Department patrol car,” Just The News reports.
“That is a nosebleed of a drop in the severity and punishment for this violent attack,” said George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley. “It is a sharp contrast to the harsh position taken by the Biden Justice Department on many of those accused of rioting on January 6th. Attorney General Merrick Garland cited the threat to police officers in pledging an unprecedented effort to charge and convict those involved on any level in the riot.”
From firebombing protesters to lying FBI agents, a two-tier justice system sharpens in focus. The argument there is one system for elites and another for rest of America has escaped boundaries of Russia collusion case to other probes. | Just The News https://t.co/DhCIm9l0ZX
