The cover-up is always worse than the crime. While the crime itself may be the thing that creates the damage—whether to an individual or a nation—the cover-up is always what comes back to bite the criminal in the behind.
This is becoming abundantly clear in regard to the Hillary Clinton email and server scandals and what it is doing not only to her presidential campaign but to her chances of staying out of federal prison. In new tweets emanating from vice presidential candidate Mike Pence, the case is made, solidly, for a case of obstruction of justice by Hillary Clinton and her closest political allies. The fact she broke the law is clear and undeniable, but the question now is what will be done about it. As Pence said, “This doesn’t look like politics. This looks like obstruction.”

With a corrupt attorney general in Loretta Lynch and a politically infiltrated Department of Justice, a legal approach is unlikely to take place before people go to the polls. However, it is at the polls that Clinton’s ultimate punishment could very well be exacted.
The specifics of the criminal acts are clear. On March 2, 2015, the New York Times reported Hillary Clinton had used a private email server outside of the government structure for official business. On March 4th, the total of her emails were subpoenaed by the House Select Committee on Benghazi, and on the 9th of that same month, she and the server company – Platte River Networks – were requested, officially and by congressional mandate, to preserve the total of the emails related to that server.
On March 25th, 2015, there was a conference call between the principles at Platte River Networks and Bill Clinton’s staff. And between the 25th and the 31st, Platte River Network employees executed a server wipe using BleachBit, a server cleanser that permanently destroys data and content so “even God can’t read them.”
By this act alone – and let’s set aside for a moment the act of Mrs. Clinton’s mishandling of classified information and her racketeering scheme commingling the State Department and the Clinton Foundation for personal enrichment – the act of destroying the data and email content alone is a crime. It is in violation of the Federal Records Preservation Act, which covers all correspondence involving government business.
This act is, by definition, obstruction of justice as the emails and data were under congressional subpoena. The Clintons and their allies destroyed material evidence in a federal investigation.
This truth – this undeniable, verifiable, and inarguable truth – led Gov. Mike Pence to make a singularly devastating equivocation, one that should matter in the minds of the American people.
“It was a long time ago, when I was still a boy, when I remember a president who deleted 18 minutes of tape and was held accountable for that,” Pence said to a rally crowd. “And now, Hillary Clinton deletes almost 18,000 emails…That doesn’t look like politics, folks, that looks like obstruction, and the American people deserve better.”
Hillary Clinton has broken the law – again! And we all know the Obama Administration will stand idly by in the hope of aiding her in her presidential quest, lawlessness be damned. That’s why it is left to the American people to take control of the situation and extract justice from the situation.

Hillary Clinton may pay the penalty of an election loss for her crimes against the America people. Only then can the Justice Department be purged of the corruption and the corrupt to affect a rightful prosecution of Clinton and all others who thought they could get away with crimes against the American people.
