CLEVELAND, OHIO — Former federal judge and U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, during the second day of the Republican National Convention, declared that presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has disregarded the Constitution and should not be elected president.
The Constitution specifically requires … the president swear to an oath — and it’s the only oath that’s set forth in the Constitution — to faithfully execute the office and to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.
Hillary Clinton took a similar oath before she became secretary of state. …. What that adds up to is that Hillary Clinton is asking the people of this country, the people of the United States, to make her the first president in history to take the Constitutional oath of office after already having violated it.
The message from this convention to everyone watching these proceedings and the message to her should be loud, clear, and short: No way Hillary! No way on earth!
Mukasey served as U.S. attorney general from November 2007 to January 2009 and as a district judge in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York from 1988 to 2006. He became chief judge in 2000.
Although President Barack Obama’s FBI director, James Comey, conceded that Clinton was “extremely careless” in handling “very sensitive, highly classified information” as secretary of state, he argued that there was no recent precedent for bringing a criminal case against her.
Mukasey has been a vocal critic of Clinton’s email scandal and the FBI’s response.
During the convention, he joined former U.S. attorney, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, in presenting a case before the public against Clinton’s mishandling of classified information as secretary of state.
