The government investigated the government and found that the government did nothing wrong.
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” – George Orwell, Animal Farm
When a police officer commits a crime, the police office performs an internal investigation, and finds nothing wrong. When you commit a crime, you are sent through the criminal justice system. When a politician commits a crime, the administration performs an internal investigation and find nothing wrong. When you commit a crime, you are held liable to the consequences of your actions.
If you believe you are in the same class as agents of the State, you are wrong. You are not your government, and the government does not represent you. You are either in the protected class, or you are not. You are either well connected, or you are not. You are either a free human being, or you are not.
Only you can represent yourself, and anyone who says otherwise is an unfree man. This election season, remember, no politician knows how to run your life better than you do. And when a government agent says verbatim, “To be clear, this is not to suggest, that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences.” You know whose side you are on.
