No, Trump's Call For A Special Prosecutor Isn't 'Banana Republic' Stuff

During the second presidential debate on Sunday night, Donald Trump suggested that he would appoint an attorney general and urge the new AG to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton’s email malfeasance. When Clinton protested that “it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” Trump fired back, “Because you’d be in jail.”

The media went apoplectic. How could Trump suggest that he’d jail his opponent? CNN’s Dana Bash compared Trump to “Stalin or Hitler.” Clinton’s campaign manager pearl-clutched: “He was talking like he would become some dictator of a banana republic and throw her and his political enemies in jail.”

This is the most lawless our government has ever been.

Only those guilty of crimes against the present republic need fear being brought to justice, where justice has been missing for quite some time.

It is because she is a crook. This is different. An investigation should be completed and if it leads to prosecution then it should be prosecuted. Comey should have done his damn job and this discussion would not be on the table.

If you're guilty of crimes, then you should go to jail. Period.

Trump cannot make America great again.
It is a political liner. A Theme. Title.
The thing you put on the campaign hat.

America has been commoditized and sold off.
The citizens were duped into massive debt to finance illegal wars and outright graft.
All of the politicians are bought. Or something bad happens.
Trump certainly isn't going to reverse what has been deliberately planned and executed.

Forget about it.
The America in our minds is long gone.
