The world wide web is replete with claims that Hillary was disbarred. She was not. Her husband Bill was disbarred.
Therefore, as a lawyer, one would think that she would have read the following law. Although this has been argued as “not applicable” by left-wing legal scholars, no one has argued that the following statute has been “modified” or “corrupted” by anti-Hillary activists. So I invite you to read it for yourself.
U.S. Code > Title 18 > Part I > Chapter 101 > § 2071
“(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.”
Oh well. Laws do not apply to the Clintons. The FBI and the Department of Justice found a lot of “play” in the words “willfully and lawfully” and “with intent.” But when I, humble American citizen that I am, read the statute I am pretty sure that had I done what Hillary did I’d be writing this post from the United States Penitentiary, Atwater.
If you want to check the validity of the statute you can go to the Cornell Law School website.
And thanks to PL for sending this to me.
