GOP lawmaker makes most ridiculous offer yet for not impeaching Trump

Rep. Michael Waltz (R-Fla.) boldly rewrote history to prosecute former President Donald Trump for allegedly taking classified documents from the White House.

“President Trump took that approach. He said, ‘You know what, we’re not going to prosecute Hillary Clinton,'” Waltz said Sunday on Fox News of the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, adding that Trump routinely Said that they should be sent to jail.

“Despite the apparent destruction of thousands and thousands of documents with Bleachbit, he had to decide what to offer the archives,” Waltz added. “And [Trump] Said, ‘You know, let’s go ahead. Let’s move on.”But when it comes down to it, they are unable to do so.

Clinton was investigated by the FBI for using a private email server for official government communications while she was secretary of state. The FBI found that he handled classified information carelessly, but determined that there was no criminal breach.

Trump was hardly eager to “move on.”

Even now, the infamous “lock her up” chants feature Clinton at Trump rallies. He suggested in 2016 that Clinton would be “in jail” during her administration. He promised to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate if he won, though he did not follow through.

Now, as the Justice Department investigates whether Trump knowingly moved classified documents from the White House to his Mar-a-Lago residence, Trump’s allies have alleged that the prosecution is a national would be too divisive for They have also attacked the Justice Department’s credibility and spread baseless and self-inflicted conspiracy theories that any damaging material found in the FBI’s search of the Florida home was planted there.

Trump is under investigation for possible violations of the Espionage Act, obstruction of justice, and removal and destruction of government documents, according to an FBI search warrant.
