Hartmann Report highlights Elizabeth Warren stating , “You explained these actions by noting your view that ‘the American people deserve those details in a case of intense public interest,’” Warren wrote to Comey. “If Secretary Clinton’s email server was of sufficient ‘interest’ to establish a new FBI standard of transparency, then surely the criminal prosecution of those responsible for the 2008 financial crisis should be subject to the same level of transparency.”
The wealthy very seldom pay for the crimes. Donald Trump has been charged with rape of a 13 year old girl in a court of law, witnessed by another girl in a sworn affidavit and he's not even sweating it, because he knows his power of his establishment billing and his billions shield him paying for crimes that put you and i in jail for a very long time. In fact it has not even been mentioned by the big 6 media corporations during his presidential candidacy.
SC Johnson, the “family” company’s billionaire heir, Samuel Curtis Johnson III, who confessed to repeatedly sexually assaulting his teenage stepdaughter received an outrageous prison sentence of only four months because the judge, (he was actually out of jail in 60 days) Circuit Justice Eugene Gasiorkiewicz, feels that Johnson’s importance to the community is valued much higher than the dignity of his abused step-daughter.
Victims alleged that billionaire Jeffery Epstein, good friend of Trump, molested underage girls from South America, Europe, and the former Soviet republics, including three 12-year-old girls brought over from France as a birthday gift.
Epstein got 18 months and was out in 13, the details of his charges sealed from the public for 20 years.
For most people, conviction for vehicular manslaughter due to drunk driving warrants a lengthy sentence, but not in the case of Ethan Couch, a wealthy young man from the state of Texas.
Remember the afluenza case in Keller, Tex., 16-year-old had a rare condition that a judge believes is best remedied with anything but dealing with the consequences for causing a DWI wreck that killed four people.
Couch suffers from “affluenza,” according to his lawyers, a term which means that his wealthy parents pretty much let him get away with everything. the 16 year old's defense saved him from a 20-year sentence, he got 10 years probation instead , which he broke.
Looking back Prescott Bush the father of George Bush Sr was accused of conspiring with a group of wealthy businessmen to overthrow the Presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt by armed force and install a dictatorship modelled along the line of Hitler's Germany and the charges never got any further than a minor closed door government investigation.
These are just a few of hundreds if not thousands of cases in which the American system of justice does not apply equally if you're rich and part of the US establishment.
