Are there different standards for the political class vs. average Americans?
The prosecutorial pass given to Hillary Clinton by FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch spotlight a double standard in applying the law to the ruling elite versus average citizens. This is not a matter of conjecture, it is a matter of practical application of laws that are strictly enforced against all but the politically connected who seem to flaunt the lawlessness of their actions without as much as a blush. Are we living under a political aristocracy that can manipulate the legal system to their benefit only? Does the law apply to all equally, or has the American ideal of justice for all become meaningless in a world of power politics and political favoritism?
Join Dan and two of the leading experts in America on espionage laws and security classifications for government and military personnel. Hear their experiences in dealing with the mishandling of classified information, and how the law is being applied differently to everyone but the politically connected. Learn how whistle blowers are becoming targets for exposing government misconduct and why average Americans are afraid to speak out against federal overreach for fear of governmental retribution. Are we living in America or Amerika?
