Gaetz nails it on Clinton: ‘We cannot live in a country where losing an election’ is ‘de facto immunity’

Rep. Matt Gaetz made the case that Hillary Clinton should be criminally investigated by Attorney General Sessions. He appeared on Judge Jeanine Pirro as she guest-hosted for Sean Hannity on Friday.

On the show, Pirro pointed out that Republican lawmakers were calling for the Attorney General to investigate Clinton for the Uranium One deal, and wondered if Sessions has the “prosecutorial balls” to go after her.

“You know what bothers me, congressman, is that given the FBI and the department of justice, dilatory approach, you know, to everything, from the hanging over of emails from the redactions, from the outright refusal by even the FBI director saying, ‘well, we will work out what we’re going to give Congress which halls oversight over justifiable and the FBIs’… you know, it seems to me that they — it is impossible, they basically have said everything but we dare you because we’re not going to do anything anyway. What do we do about this?” Pirro asked.

“Well, Congress doesn’t have the power to throw people in jail, but we have the responsibility to find the evidence and show it to the American people,” Gaetz responded. “And to your point, judge Jeanine, if we had not had congressional oversight and hearings and subpoenas, we wouldn’t even know about the text messages between Pete Strzok and Lisa Page that demonstrate a substantial anti-Trump pro-Hillary bias.”

“You mentioned Andrew McCabe earlier,” he went on, “his testimony before the Judiciary Committee in closed session showed me Hillary Clinton was never really put in jeopardy as a result of her use of a private email server and the leaking of classified information because she had people that were running interference for her at the DOJ.”

“What do you say to people who say ‘I am so sick and tired of this Clinton email investigation thing. Let it go.’ What do you say to them?” Pirro asked.

“We cannot live in a country where losing an election functions as de facto immunity deal,” he answered. “If people broke the law, they have to be held accountable. If we just allow that to happen, then we invite that type of crime in the future.”

“That’s why the rule of law matters and the Clintons have decades of ignoring the rule of law and never being held accountable,” he continued.

“We have a chance to change and we need to take that opportunity.”
