THE REPUBLICAN/CONSERVATIVE PROPAGANDA MACHINE KEEPS SPREADING FALSE AND MISLEADING INFORMATION

THE  FORCES OF DISINFORMATION 

keep doing this inane thing of spreading bullshit that has been rescinded and retracted, or proven false:
And here is the TEXT OF THE retraction and explanation:

No, Hillary Clinton wouldn’t be legally ineligible for the Presidency even if she had violated government records laws
[UPDATE: Michael Mukasey sent a very gracious e-mail yesterday evening to say that, “on reflection, … Professor Tillman’s [analysis] is spot on, and mine was mistaken…. The disqualification provision in Section 2071 may be a measure of how seriously Congress took the violation in question, and how seriously we should take it, but that’s all it is.”]
Prof. Seth Barrett Tillman has an interesting — and, I think, likely correct — response to claims that, if Hillary Clinton is found guilty of violating federal document concealment/destruction laws, she would be statutorily ineligible for the Presidency. Those claims have been most prominently made by Michael Mukasey, a former Attorney General and federal judge, whom I much respect but who I think erred in this instance. Prof. Tillman was kind enough to let me pass it along:
A Response to Michael B. Mukasey and Cause of Action:
Michael B. Mukasey, a former Attorney General of the United States (and former Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York), has stated that if former Secretary of State (and former Senator) Hillary Clinton is convicted under 18 U.S.C. § 2071,[1] then she is disqualified from holding the presidency.[2] Likewise, a Washington, DC think tank has just published a white paper taking the same position.[3] Mukasey’s and Cause of Action’s position is fundamentally misconceived; indeed, neither puts forward any authority for the position that Section 2071 or any other federal statute creates or could create a disqualification in regard to any elected federal position, including the presidency.
THIS IS THE TEXT BEING SPREAD VIA EMAIL INSPITE OF MUKASKEY’S RETRACTION:

   I haven’t seen where you or any other Representative or Senator hold Hillary Clinton to this, WHY???

It’s business as usual in D.C. The land separate from the USA. And You wonder why the voters are upset!!!
Have any of you read United States Code Title 18. Section 2071 ???

                               A ship called America – either we learn to sail together or we sink together

        United States Code Title 18. Section 2071

 Word for word from the Cornell Law Library !!!

 Former United States Attorney General Michael Mukasey tells MSNBC that not only is Hillary Clinton’s private email server illegal, it “disqualifies” her from holding any federal office.

Such as, say, President of the United States.
“If you do this or that bad thing, you’ve essentially disqualified yourself as being the leader of the free world,” said Mukasey, referring to the illegal server and the illegal handling of classified materials.

Mukasey specifically points to one federal law, Title 18. Section 2071.

For those of us who do not have United States Code committed to memory, here’s what it says:
“(a)

Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

(b)

Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.”

Yes, it explicitly states “shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”
Shouldn’t voters know that? The media won’t tell them. So it’s up to us. Can you help hold Hillary accountable? Pass this on, please.

 

 AND ALL THAT OF COURSE IS NOT RELEVANT !
