I wrote my Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, California - Orange County: that the fix was in on the FBI Director not finding any evidence to indict Hillary Clinton

Here you go:

August 5, 2016

Mr. Lenard W. Wahlert
8 Rubis Way
Aliso Viejo, CA 92656-4227

Dear Mr. Wahlert:

Thank you for contacting me with your views regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of her private email server for official government correspondence . I appreciate the opportunity to respond to your concerns.

As you may know, Hillary Clinton was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for her alleged mishandling of classified information by the use of her private email servers for official State Department communications. In the course of the investigation, the FBI discovered that 113 emails contained classified information at the time they were sent, including 65 emails deemed “Secret” and 22 deemed “Top Secret.”

As the investigatory arm of the Department of Justice (DOJ), the FBI handles cases that involve any alleged crime that falls under federal jurisdiction. Upon conclusion of those investigations, it offers a recommendation to the DOJ on the ca se. After consideration of the evidence presented by the FBI, the Attorn ey General of the United States makes a final determination as to whether charges will be filed against an individual for the purported crime.

At the conclusion of this investigation, FBI Director James B. Comey delivered a statement to the press and the American people indicating that while Mrs. Clinton and others at the Department of State were “extremely careless ” in their handling of classified material, based on the evidence, the FBI would not recommend criminal charges be filed against her. He stated there was no previous precedent that would support bringing criminal charges based on the facts of the case , and that no criminal intent was uncovered during the investigation . He did, however, indicate that while under these circumstances a person may be subject to administrative sanctions by the agency at which they are employed, that question is not answered by the FBI . Following the statement by Director Comey, Attorney General Loretta Lynch accepted the FBI’s recommendation, and thus Mrs. Clinton will not be prosecuted by DOJ for those actions.

While I remain skeptical of the FBI’s recommendation and DOJ’s decision to not indict Mrs. Clinton, I do not have the authority as a Member of Congress to reverse the decision.

Again, thank you for giving me the benefit of your views. Please continue to keep me informed on any federal issue of importance to you.


Dana Rohrabacher
Member of Congress

        She gave a statement of fact. While we would like her to do more, as an individual member of congress she cant. What Congress need to do is what Sheriff Beaufort Pusser did to the judge in his first movie. You may remember the Judge was tipping off the bad guys to the warrants Beaufort was getting from the judge. Beaufort found out that as the sheriff he assigned the judges office apace, so he moved him in to a basement bathroom at the courthouse. Congress needs to de-fund Air force 1 [to stop these damned vacations] , the Justice department or any other part of the administration that doesn't play ball. That is why the founders gave them the power of the purse. Unfortunately the RINOS there just don't use it.

          She is a member of con-gress. The con-gress is not powerless unless they choose to be. She is a coward who sees injustice and allows it to continue without any action. Cat got her tongue? Her written response puts her firmly in the camp of James Taggart whining "Its not my fault. You can' blame me!" Disgusting looter.

    Congresscritters have become captives of an elite plutocracy that can cut off their election funds in a heartbeat, and Shillary is the plutocracy's anointed toady. While Sanders and Trump have shown that campaigns can be funded by small donations, being able to haul in millions in a single night from "bundlers" is like heroin to politicians that may not have the charisma to draw money from individual voters. So long as PACs and bundling are allowed, the addiction isn't going to stop.

    I'm not an opponent of Citizens United, but I strongly believe in absolute transparency of campaign funding. I want to know who is being bought, and by whom. Individual campaign contributions only, with no limits, and every contributor identified.

    We need to repeal the 17th Amendment, and return the selection of senators to their home states. Making these positions elected by popular vote was intended to root out corruption and cronyism, but all it did was make the senators servants of the big money people behind the major parties. Lots of other "course corrections" needed, but that's one of the big ones.

    That's the problem-excuses , excuses, excuses.

    So what alternative do we have? Elect a crook and lying thief to the White House?

    I'm voting for Mr Trump (aka John Galt)!

    Lies sent Martha Stewart to jail and what she did had nothing to do with national security.
    But she isn't the biased media protected Bloody Benghazi Corrupt Shillary, wife of a former Rapist-In-Chief that she helped enable, bribe taker and money launderer of the Clintonista Crime Family and presidential candidate of the socialist jackass party.
    I do believe Congress has the power to address lies.
    Heard some effort is being made to address that. Like I'm holding my breath.

    I congratulate on getting a reasonable answer from your Congressperson. Although, it would informative to find out if she is on any Congressional Committee that has any jurisdiction regarding Hillary's crimes.
    Every time I have wrote my Congressional Senators and Representative I get a form letter not answering my questions. John McCain, Jeff Flake are my Senators and Ann Kirkpatrick is the Representative. All off them are idiots. I have even requested as my elected officials to answer me directly and no form letter and they all have sent me form letters in return. They must have staffers who hate getting letters from the state's constituents. So, they just send out form letters.

        Purpose: Convention of States Action is a 501 (c)(4) non-profit organization founded for the purpose of stopping the runaway power of the federal government. We believe Washington, D.C., is broken and will not fix itself. The federal government is spending this country into the ground, seizing power from the states and taking liberty from the people.

        We have a solution that is as big as the problem.

        Goal: Convention of States Action (COSA) seeks to urge and empower state legislators to call a convention of states. Delegates to the convention will have power to propose amendments to the Constitution that would curb the abuses of the federal government. Article V of the Constitution gives them this power; the COS Project will give them an avenue through which they can use it.

        Plan: COSA’s plan is twofold

        1.  Article V requires that 34 states pass resolutions to call a convention of states on the same subject, before the meeting will be called. We are working with state legislators around the country to call a convention for a specific subject: Limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

        2.   We believe grassroots support is the key to successfully calling a convention. We are building a political operation in over 40 states, recruiting 100 citizens who are ready to contact their state legislators in at least 75% of the state legislative districts.

    I have written to my elected weasel about several issues, the response is more or less the same form letter statement that is careful to not take a side, and thanking me profusely for bringing whatever the subject is to his attention. My reply is always the same - " you are my voice in congress, you can call a press conference, you can write an editorial that is sure to be published denouncing the issue and calling for your constituents to inundate congress for action about this issue, you can ask the local media why there is no coverage, yet you never do any of those things, even though you purport to be outraged... why won`t you do that?" I never get a reply. In a recent video a truth was spoken - "they( govt.) do not take us for idiots, they take us for cowards."

    Yada, yada, yada.
    Same old, same.
    There are many things she can do but is apparently too lazy or too in the tank for Hillary to do it.
    The smell emanating from DC is getting so overpowering that no amount of Fabreze will ever eliminate it.

      They are also hiding behind the foundation which is an LLC operaton of which means the stock holders are protected from the actions of the foundation. It's part of the corporations personhood rights. Not joking that's the law.
