The corruption of Washington’s leaders threatens the American way of life, according to a Sept. 14 speech by best-selling legal commentator and former New Jersey judge Andrew Napolitano.
“Expose Congress for the weaklings they are and the president for the tyrant he is,” Napolitano told a Leadership Summit on Washington, DC Corruption and the Transparency Crisis several blocks from the Capitol Building. The Fox News commentator and former New Jersey judge drew from his most recent book, Suicide Watch, and two of his WND (World Net Daily) columns, What if Hillary doesn’t care? and Will deceptive Hillary get a pass?
The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch sponsored the one-day conference, which primarily documented misconduct allegations against Democrats. But many speakers like Napolitano, shown in our JIP photo of his luncheon keynote, also condemned Republican leaders for lack of integrity and effectiveness in exposing scandals involving Hillary Clinton, immigration, 9/11, and the Internal Revenue Service.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton announced that new evidence shows an inexplicable and potentially criminal five-month gap in the official emails submitted recently on behalf of Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner and former secretary of state.
As for Congress? “If they are doing anything about it, it’s the best-kept secret in Washington,” Fitton announced to an audience of nearly a hundred to begin the day.
Republican Joseph diGenova, a former Bush administration U.S. attorney in charge of all federal criminal and civil litigation in the District of Columbia, said he has “never seen an investigation so mishandled” by Congress as its long inquiry over responsibility for the 2012 massacre of four Americans in the Libyan city of Benghazi and related inquiries regarding Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state. Clinton, like several predecessors in the office, used a private system instead of a government-run system whereby communications are more readily reviewed by others.
“The Republican Congress when it comes to investigating corruption is absolutely incompetent,” diGenova continued. “It’s almost equivalent to Hillary Clinton’s audacity in setting up that service.”
The Justice Integrity Project (JIP) coverage below continues our reporting that began years ago on these issues. Today’s report begins a series on hot-button issues that we have explored at recent conferences, whose topics include money-wasting and otherwise corrupt NSA surveillance of all Americans that failed to stop the deadly 2001 9/11 and anthrax attacks on the United States.
