Donald Trump’s crowds and supporters across America, responding to Hillary Clinton’s email scandal: “Lock her up!”
House GOP leadership now that Donald Trump will be the next president, responding to Hillary Clinton’s email scandal: “Not so much!”
In an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” this past weekend, House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, said that investigating Hillary Clinton further for her mishandling of classified information on her private email server was not on Congress’ agenda.
This was in spite of the fact that President-elect Donald Trump had repeatedly said he would appoint a special prosecutor in the Clinton case.
Rep. McCarthy told Chris Wallace that it was not what he wanted to spend his time on while the Republicans had a governing majority in both houses plus the presidency.
“Look, I’m the majority leader,” Rep. McCarthy said. “I set the agenda. The agenda’s going to be about job creation. It’s going to be about reforming and repealing Obamacare. It’s going to be about infrastructure.
“That’s the focus that this election was about,” he continued. “President-elect Donald Trump has a vigorous agenda.”
When asked by Wallace whether pursuing Hillary Clinton was part of that agenda, McCarthy said, “I leave that portion to law enforcement. That’s just the way to keep politics out of it.”
In other words, no.
We understand better than most the importance of priorities, especially given the opportunity the Republican Party is being given. Putting Hillary Clinton in jail won’t give American families the affordable health care they need. It won’t give working men and women the job opportunities they need to support themselves.
However, it’s quite clear that there are questions that need to be answered about Clinton’s mishandling of classified information, and those questions can be best answered by an independent prosecutor.
It’s time for Republicans to keep their promises and to make sure that Hillary Clinton is brought to justice — if, indeed, there is justice to be served. The House of Representatives can help Donald Trump do this.
We need everyone to call his congressman or congresswoman to make sure this happens. Justice deferred is justice denied.
