Congress: Attorney General
Lynch ‘Pleads Fifth’ on Secret Iran ‘Ransom’ Payments
“It is frankly unacceptable that your department refuses to answer straightforward questions from the people’s elected representatives in Congress about an important national security issue,” the lawmakers wrote. “Your staff failed to address any of our questions, and instead provided a copy of public testimony and a lecture about the sensitivity of information associated with this issue.”
“As the United States’ chief law enforcement officer, it is outrageous that you would essentially plead the fifth and refuse to respond to inquiries,” they stated. “The actions of your department come at time when Iran continues to hold Americans hostage and unjustly sentence them to prison.”
Rex Lex – Originally published in 1644 by Scottish Presbyterian Minister Reverend Samuel Rutherford, this is a copy of the 1843 printing. Lex, Rex defends the rule of law and the lawfulness of defensive wars and advocates limited government and constitutionalism in politics.

With the re-opening of a federal investigation concerning Hillary Clinton’s email’s it would appear that finally justice may be served. The clip below is from one of my hero’s Judge Napolitano who, as usual, cuts to the heart of the matter
When the government, which is supposed to enforce the law, acts like it is above the law, then, the rule of law collapses. This, in my opinion, is essentially what has happened with the last 8 years of the Obama administration.
We have Benghazi, which, I believe is a classic wag-the-dog. We have Obama handing the Internet over, against the public’s wishes. We have the Iran “deal” which may turn out to be nothing more than ransom. Then there’s the email scandal, which has come back into play with less than two weeks before the election.
It’s time to drain the swam! Get rid of the carrier politicians, and impose term limits. It’s time for Congress to live by the laws they pass. It’s time to hold those accountable who deem themselves above the law.
Clinton is calling this latest move by FBI director Comey, part of a vast, right-wing conspiracy. With all due respect Madame Secretary, there is no conspiracy, only the rule of the law and it would appear that you violated the law otherwise you would not be under investigation and possible indictment.
