Justice. May it rest in peace.

December 13, 2018

The New York criminal code has apparently added a new criminal act.

This one reads “It shall be a criminal offense to be related either by blood or association to Donald J. Trump.”

That’s kind of what we glean from incoming New York Attorney General Letitia James’ declaration concerning her goals as she assumes office.

One progressive leaning outlet even reports her as saying she will make his life and those of his associates “a living hell.”

Wow.  So much for the impartiality of the law.

One wonders if Ms. James is taking her cue from the Mueller investigation.

For those who think “justice” always works like this, normally a prosecutor is made aware of a crime, like selling drugs or torching a building, and then they investigate it.

One of the casualties of the left’s obsession with taking Trump down is any semblance that we still have an impartial system of justice in this country.

Even James Comey in his recent remarkably memory-challenged  congressional testimony admitted that he set out to deliberately entrap General Flynn, taking advantage of the naiveté of the newly incoming Trump administration.

Just try not mirandizing a pickpocket or a burglar and see how long that holds up in court.

It used to be that “lawyering up” was seen as an admission of guilt. Today, the first thing you should probably do when confronted by any law enforcement or legal personnel is do exactly that.

The judge responsible for sentencing General Flynn is apparently still troubled by this reversal of ethics, which is why he has asked for anything and everything relating to Flynn’s interrogation, but he is certainly in the minority.

There have always been corrupt cops and attorneys, but today they seem to be more the rule than the exception.

This weaponization of the justice system should be of concern to all of us. Today it’s Donald Trump and Michael Flynn.  Tomorrow it could be you.
