If you want to avoid jail time, run for president

If you want to avoid jail time, run for president

by Jon Rappoport

Richard Painter was once an ethics lawyer for George W Bush.

Lawyer Painter claims Trump must not push the Attorney (AG) General into prosecuting Hillary Clinton, because it is wrong for a sitting president to go after his former opponent from an election campaign.

Wrong? Painter actually wrote:

“[Trump] Pressuring AG to prosecute the person [Hillary] who lost the election is an impeachable offense if we value free elections.”

Impeachable? Really?

By that logic, it might be a good idea for drug traffickers and banksters and mobsters and other miscreants to gain immunity by running for the highest office in the land.

“Hey, you can’t arrest me. I ran for president.”

Painter may be a lawyer, but he doesn’t understand logic. Or he does, and he’s just bloviating, because he wants to pile on Trump.

“Mrs. Clinton, did you begin committing your first felonies after you announced your candidacy for the presidency in 2016?”

“Ha-ha, goodness no. Bill and I were breaking all sorts of laws from the beginning, back in Arkansas.”

If lawyer Painter had lived at the time of Al Capone, he could have said, “Big Al, I have a one-stop shop for your legal problems. Join one of the two political parties and run for president. Then you’ll be untouchable.”

The money-washing Clinton Foundation was not an invention of Donald Trump. Neither was the outrageous uranium deal the Clintons helped engineer, during which 20% of US uranium production was sold to Putin.

“Mrs. Clinton, we’re taking a close look at your role in the invasion of Libya, which turned that nation into a sewer of destruction, death, and chaos.”

“Sorry, I can’t answer questions on that subject. I ran for president.”

“Are you pleading the Fifth?”

“Certainly not. I’m saying I was promised immunity.”

“By whom?”


I’m waiting for lawyer Painter’s next shot out of the box. It might go this way: “Trump didn’t actually win the election, he colluded with Russia, so he isn’t president, so he can’t order the Attorney General to do anything. Hillary Clinton is actually the president, and as such, she can claim executive privilege and refuse to allow herself to be prosecuted, as long as she remains in office.” Which, in her mind, is forever.

I’m aware that many people believe Trump himself is escaping prosecution for past financial crimes because he is in currently in the White House. However, the last time I looked at the law, two wrongs don’t make a right. If Hillary has committed serious crimes (and she has), then prosecution ought to follow.

The media shouldn’t object. Hillary Clinton, in the dock, in a globally televised trial? The ratings would extend to Mars.

With Mr. Painter as her attorney, there would be fireworks:

“My client, Hillary Clinton, was born in a solar system far, far away. That information has just come to light. Therefore, I challenge the standing of this court to review her actions. At the moment, space ships are departing her home planet with legal papers to serve, including a birth certificate. They should arrive circa 2406AD. Until that time, she should be released on her own recognizance.”

“This is trial is being brought to you by Bayer, maker of Thorazine. Ask your doctor if Thorazine is right for you.”

    This is the first thought that came to mind when Jamie Diamond from JP Morgan recently announced that we was thinking about running for US President.

  2. truth1 says:

    Well, ya know, politics and law have nothing in common. Politics is power and law is non-existent. I think Confucius said that . . . ah ha ha ha ha ha!

  3. low voltage says:

    The only way a politician goes to jail is if they bite the hand that feeds them.

  4. Dana Doran says:

    I think you’re on to something here….when mainstream media realizes that Hillary is the new OJ, there might be some interest in prosecution. After all, where would mainstream media be without the advertising dollars generated by OJ and by extension Caitlin Jenner/The Kardashians? Without OJ and his trial, Kim and her family would be living quietly in the Valley.

    I recently mentioned to my next door neighbor, when the subject of Hillary came up, that the Clintons and Bushes are crime families like the Giancanas, Lucianos, and Gambinos. Judging from the blank look on his face it was news to him and he didn’t believe me.

    When a crime family, such as the bootlegging Kennedy’s, attain sufficient power and hold some high offices they become untouchable, but they’re still crime families. If one follows the money trails of heroin, cocaine, human trafficking, and war profiteering, the trails will invariably end at the doorsteps of the “town’s leading citizens”. Any serious study of the ruling families will reveal this fact. In relative terms, organized crime families like the Mafia are minor league.

    “My research has shown very clearly that organized crime really consists of a coalition of politicians, law-enforcement people, businessmen, union leaders, and in some ways least important of all, racketeers.” – William J. Chambliss, On The Take: From Petty Crooks To Presidents, 1988

    The real reason the establishment hates Trump — and this isn’t an endorsement — is that he is not one of Them, one of the leading crime families. The Clintons and Bushes have long established their territories and Trump is seen as an invader, the same way a street gang sees an outsider. Trump represents a rival gang and a smaller one at that.

    I would love to run for president of the USA, except they have no presidents any longer, only CEO’s.
    Bill Clinton announced publicly, “I will be the LAST president of the United States”.
    I would make the best president you ever had, but nobody is interested.
    Conscription of everyone over 16, and a Debit Tax, with the removal of all other taxes, would make America “great again”.

    Reblogged this on Conservative News Blog Site and commented:
    I always thought the only reason she ran for Senate was to avoid being arrested. She is a real work of evil dross.

    When laws do not apply to ALL equally, we are no longer a nation of laws!
    If we are not a nation of laws, we are an oligarchy.

    • Theodore says:


      And, western-civilization citizens need to do their part to keep the institutions of ‘western rule of law’ in place and honest. Learning about the barbarous ways of the sharia-law mooslims woke me up to that fact.

  9. From Quebec says:

    Prosecute Obama, Hillary, Bill Clinton,and the Bush family. They have all ruined your country. They all belong in jail.

    Go Trump!, Put pressure on Jeff Session and let start draining that swamp.
