Hillary Clinton got the deal of a lifetime from federal prosecutors. The deal was so good that even biased Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents that hated President Trump thought she got off easy. Trial Lawyer Marina Medvin described in Townhall
how rare Hillary's treatment was by saying her lawyers had "met unicorns". The idea that she did not have to fight off a barrage of warrants from federal investigators and attorneys, as the rest of us would, but instead received a polite request for incriminating evidence, only to have Clinton's lawyers refuse the request.
"The Feds have two ways to get evidence: 1) ask you, 2) force you. Guess how many times I have seen the first option? Zero. Zero times. Second option? 100% of the time. And I’m not special. I checked with many defense lawyers. None of us have ever seen option 1. Ever. Of course, Clinton’s lawyer’s knew that destruction of evidence is a crime. Most lawyers know this. This is like saying they met minimum competency standards. But we know her lawyers were far more intelligent than that. This is a loaded response. What else? The prosecutors stated that seeking evidence through consent also saved time by allowing the government to avoid motions to quash subpoenas based on privilege or lack of probable cause.” Wait. The prosecutors stated that they can avoid a few minutes of adversarial process? But the entire point of having lawyers on both sides is that they engage in adversarial process. IT’S THEIR JOB! They argued that not doing their job would save time?! "
Medvin continues: "FBI disagreed with the prosecutors’ unique decision to use the Unicorn Option, and believed that: “Clinton’s attorneys had not been forthcoming about the existence of potential sources of evidence.” No way! Shocking! So weird. That's when the unicorns started burping rainbows and the FBI’s concerns were disregarded. AND THEN, the prosecutors didn’t get search warrants for 6 laptops provided to the government by Clinton’s lawyers on the condition that the government NOT search these laptops. Not The Onion. I promise." She concludes," AND THEN, the prosecutors decided that she can go home: “… at the end of the day, I do believe everybody felt that we had obtained everything that we needed to obtain in order to assess criminality. That’s when the unicorns started pooping cupcakes."
Nobody, but nobody gets this treatment from the feds. Most of us, should we have the misfortune, spend a fortune to not suffer the fate of Michael Flynn, who had to sell his house to even pay for the lawyers that negotiated his likely coerced "plea deal". Hillary got the biggest free pass in history because of who she is, and that is why trust for the government is as pervasive as unicorns; wise people know better than that.
