Donald Trump Should Be Locked Up


trump-shooting-himself

During his campaign, Donald Trump agreed that Hillary Clinton should be “locked up” for handling classified material on a private e-mail server.  FBI Director, James Comey, said Clinton’s actions, while careless, “didn’t amount to a crime.”  A complete evaluation of the e-mail server issue indicated a “less a sinister” but “carefully calculated effort to avoid transparency”. In  a Sept 30, 2016 article Politico concluded from reading the FBI’s interviews, that Clinton’s team hardly seemed organized enough to mount any sort of sinister cover-up.

 

 

Contrast the attempt to avoid transparency of Hillary to the actions of Former General David Petraeus when he headed the Central Intelligence Agency.  Petraeus, a respected four-star general resigned as CIA director in 2012 amid a criminal investigation. He faced potential felony charges and imprisonment, after the FBI discovered he had provided classified information to his mistress Paula Broadwell, and lied to the FBI about it.  Let me repeat!  The Director of the Central Intelligence Agency intentionally gave information he admitted was classified to a woman he was sleeping with.  He didn’t receive cash payment for the classified information, but he was certainly using the classified information to pay for something.

In his plea agreement, Petraeus admitted to mishandling classified information that was contained in personal notebooks. Petraeus told his mistress, Paula Broadwell, that his notebooks contained “highly classified” information, yet gave them to her. The information didn’t appear in the biography.Then, to make matters worse, Petraeus lied to the FBI during the investigation — a felony that’s punishable by up to five years in prison. He told agents that he never provided or facilitated the provision of classified information to his biographer.  Petraeus’s actions, including lying to the FBI, “were in all respects knowing and deliberate, and were not committed by mistake, accident or another innocent reason,” according to the statement of facts accompanying the plea agreement.  Petreaus’s guilty charge was under Section 1924 of Title 18 of the United States Code. This section prohibits a government officer or employee who possesses documents or materials containing classified information, who “knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location.”

Clinton’s emails were not marked “classified” at the time they were sent. But officials found “top secret” information in her emails because of a process called “retroactive classification.” That means if there is a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for information sent on an unclassified system, the State Department can retroactively deem it classified instead of making it public. That means the State Department can categorize something as “classified” for purposes of the FOIA that was not “classified” previously for any other purpose.  Thus there is a significant difference between the classified information Petraeus knowingly and deliberately supplied to his mistress, and the e-mails that Hillary sent in the normal course of her position as Secretary of State, that were later classified as classified for purposes of FOIA.

For Donald Trump to seriously consider Petraeus for Secretary of State, the same position held by the person Trump wanted to “lock up,” is outrageous.  Petraeus pled guilty to a federal count of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material.  Petraeus is still on probation, and will be until April of 2017, over two months AFTER the Trump inauguration.  Hillary was never charged with a crime, never gave classified documents to anyone who was not allowed to receive them, and never had to serve probation or pay a fine for anything.  Trump’s consideration of the admitted criminal as Secretary of State is a clear indication of his ability to judge character.  The affair of Patraeus was a breach of his marriage vows and a clear indication of his flawed character that caused Patraeus to violate federal law.  As the director of the CIA he was in one of the most trusted positions in the country.  By giving classified information to his mistress he violated his obligation to the American public and his oath of office.  For Donald Trump to even consider this criminal for the position of Secretary of State is an indication that Trump should be locked up!

    CAN PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP MANIPULATE THE STOCK MARKET TO HIS AND HIS FAMILY’S BENEFIT?

    When someone sells their stocks because they have inside nonpublic knowledge that the stock prices will drop, that is called “inside trading”.

    INSIDE TRADING DEFINITION:
    Insider trading is the trading of a public company’s stock or other securities (such as bonds or stock options) by individuals with access to nonpublic information about the company. In various countries, some kinds of trading based on insider information is illegal

    ● Trump owned stock in Boeing.

    ● Is it just great timing Trump sold his Boeing stock in June?

    ● Trump used his position as president-elect to singlehandedly bring down Boeing’s stock value.

    ● They say when stock prices drops that’s the time to buy more.

    ● Wonder if Trump, his wife, his kids, his friends and his cabinet members bought more Boeing stock after Trump’s announcement made Boeing’s stock dropped?

    ● Keep in mind Trump and people within his cabinet tend to make money through other’s griefs and losses.

    Spokesman: Trump sold all his stock in June

    Donald Trump sold all his stock back in June, a transition team spokesman said today, showing the president-elect has begun to address concerns about complicated entanglements between his business and new government life.

    Questions about Trump’s stock holdings came back into view Tuesday after he criticized the costs of Boeing (BA) to build a new Air Force One. “The president-elect sold all of his stock back in June. I do not know if he had any Boeing stock at that time,” says Trump spokesman Jason Miller…

  6. There are a lot of dangerous bullies in the world. And this guy leads the pack today. The Outrageousness of this person and his party are more and more legal and ethical staggering lawsuits.. Let us hope that the electoral will do the right thing and prove this fact. America’s most important election was hijacked, rigged and manipulated and that swayed the vote. And now we fight for justice. Let us hope the checks and balances that our ancestors put in place will prevent a serious historic disaster.
