It's already BEEN investigated, and it's already been concluded that, while careless and stupid, she did not engage in behavior that meets the burden of criminal culpability.

You just don't like the result, even as you know nothing about the law, so you want a "do over" until you get the answer you'd like that allows for the persecution of political rivals.

Still wrong. Nixon didn't select Cox. Attorney General Elliot Richardson did. Even the source you chose to cite agrees with that; plus:

Cox's selection ended a sometimes frantic search by Richardson that lasted more than two weeks.

His first choice, Federal judge Harold Tyler, Jr. of New York City, turned down the job Monday citing his reluctance to step down from the bench, particularly when the ground rules for the prosecutor's post had not yet been settled.

Another of the four "finalists" for the job, former Deputy Attorney General Warren Christopher, took himself out of the running Wednesday, saying that he saw no "reasonable probability" of securing "the requisite independence."

The withdrawals served to reinforce doubts about the independence Richardson said the prosecutor would have. They also raised questions abut Richardson's own prospects for Senate confirmation.

Richardson offered the job to Cox Wednesday evening in a phone call to the West Coast where Cox was giving a University of California lecture.

LOL, I'll say Ambient is talking over his/her head and just parroting liberal media lol.

Wrong.. Attorney General was John Mitchell, who was NIXONS Attorney General. Do you not know who AG's bosses are?

A special prosecutor, Archibald Cox, was appointed by John Mitchell, President Nixon’s attorney general. Mitchell instructed the special prosecutor to investigate the Nixon administration’s involvement in the Watergate break-in.

Nixon couldnt fire him if he DIDNT HIRE HIM.. You cant be fired by someone that isnt your dam boss..

How do you know?.... Hillary after deleted 30,000 + emails after congress told her to give them to congress. How do you know what was in those emails?

If she would have complied with the law and handed them over as instructed by congress we would know though, those emails were obviously a problem for her.

It would have been lawful and better for Hillary to hand over the emails as instructed by congress. Instead she deleted them. She did that because she was hiding something and you'll defend that?

John Mitchell resigned his AG position in 1972 in order to manage Nixon's reelection campaign. Cox was appointed in 1973.

TY. If you can turn what you quoted into 'I will send Hillary to jail,' may I recommend: http://www.k12reader.com/subject/rea...comprehension/

Never in the history of American Presidential politics have we ever had a candidate go into this kind of chilling territory. But then again, a lot of very negative records are being broken by Trump as of late.

Look, the Hillary email thing has been through like a year+ of investigation. FBI digging through it. Attorney General digging through it. Everything that could be scrutinized has been scrutinized. The evidence was looked at by independent entities in accordance with due process. Hillary handled her emails dismally and recklessly, and it calls her judgment into question. But nothing that can warrant the burden of criminal culpability has come of it. You can argue otherwise, but you're just letting your partisan zeal mask conjecture for fact.

For Trump to suggest now that he would convene a forum to reverse the process that's been carried out and jail Clinton is illegal and recklessly anti-Constitutional. Do people even understand what a massively dangerous precedent this sets?

And make no mistake: if you argue in support of this kind of behavior by a leader of ANY political persuasion and can't see you way through your partisan haze to recognize how dangerous this is, then you're anti-American. You're anti-Constitution. And you're not worthy of the heritage of this nation. End of story.


Not all rivals................................... just one criminal, corrupt rival who has evaded justice due to a corrupt presidential administration, DOJ, and FBI.
