hile Hillary and Bill Clinton have become the focus of accusations, speculation, debate, allegation and simple gossip related to legal hot water over her emails while Secretary of State and the Clinton Foundation, their ability to come through unharmed during the 2016 election process has led to her becoming labeled “Teflon Hillary”.
Of the massive dump of Clinton emails conducted by WikiLeaks, Julian Assange considers one more important, and damning to Clinton’s bid to become elected the next President of the United States, than all the rest. Mr. Assange shows the email to John Pilger in an interview which will air on Saturday, November 5 on RT.
The email was sent in September 2014, after Hillary Clinton stepped away as Secretary of State, from her campaign manager John Podesta to Ms. Clinton. In that email Podesta describes how the governments – repeat: governments – of Saudi Arabia and Qatar were providing money and logistical support to ISIL: according to the Obama administration the gravest, overarching threat to America and the world.
The obvious question coming from this September 2014 email arises: “Why didn’t Hillary Clinton immediately and strongly advocate cutoffs of any arms transfers to Saudi Arabia and Qatar, along with the toughest sanctions available for punishing and stopping further criminal actions of/by sponsors of terrorism? Admittedly, the metaphorical layer of teflon surrounding Hillary and Bill Clinton is thick and (thus far) effective, but one would find it perhaps impossible to imagine a way Ms. Clinton can avoid, ignore, obfuscate away or escape from this scandal.
Fundamentally, law and order at local, regional, national and international levels recognize that failing to act or speak out while aware of, knowing the truth about, crimes and their perpetrators is “aiding and abetting” – itself a punishable aspect of the criminal act. Mr. Podesta is also obliged to respond to this revelation, in particular why he along with Ms. Clinton failed to speak out or otherwise take right action.
In legal jargon, incontrovertible evidence identifying guilty parties of crimes when discovered, unearthed and verified becomes referred to as the “smoking gun”. In the United States laws against terrorist activities, including assisting or otherwise supporting terrorists, went into effect after the events of September 11, 2001. Those laws are still on the books, applicable, and enforceable against any American citizen.
As it pertains to Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and/or any other person(s) aware of Saudi Arabia and Qatar government support for ISIL as outlined in this email, it does not require legal training to fully understand they are all guilty of crimes. All the teflon in the universe will not stop that truth from becoming known to all.
