Obama Continues His Persecution Of Bob McDonnell

Roanoke Times, 12-9-2015, Pg Va. 1: The “US government” filed a brief opposing former Gov. Bob McDonnell’s request for an appeal to his corruption convictions.
The “US government”, that means Obama personally going out of his way to “stick it to Bob McDonnell”.  Obama and minions used federal prosecutors to “get” Bob McDonnell before the last Virginia election.  The plan and the result were to get Virginia into Democrat hands in time to support Hillary’s election to President.
The prosecutors convinced a federal jury that McDonnell used his office to assist the business activities of a “vitamin supplement” business and in return, he and his wife got $150,000 in gifts and gratuities.
To many observers it appeared and still appears that McDonnell provided minimal and trivial support, well within the bounds of what representatives do under the guise of “constituent service” and was within the bounds of Virginia code.
Clearly, the Obama handling of the McDonnell case stands in stark contrast to how his Judicial System is handling the massive malfeasance of Hillary’s money-gathering, political favoritism and mismanagement of sensitive national security top secret information.

Clinton intervened for firm after request to son-in-law
WASHINGTON (AP) — As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton intervened in a request forwarded by her son-in-law on behalf of a deep-sea mining firm to meet with her or other State Department officials, according to the recently released Clinton emails.
One of the firm's investors had asked Clinton's son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky, who is married to Chelsea Clinton, for help setting up such contacts, the emails show.
Marc’s father Ed, Chesea’s father-in-law, is no stranger to political malfeasance.
In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 felony charges of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.[12] Nearly $10 million was involved in the crimes. Shortly after his indictment, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but the judge at his trial disallowed a mental illness defense.[5] He served his time at Federal Prison Camp, Eglin.[13] Mezvinsky, Federal Bureau of Prisons # 55040-066, was released in April 2008.[14] He remained on federal probation until 2011, and as of 2010[update] still owed $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.[15]
Hillary Gets $2 BILLION goes to White House Again
Hillary’s latest take is $2 BILLION in slush fund money, much of which is from foreign sources, handled by their “Foundation”.  Wasn’t she Secretary of State?  Wasn't her primary responsibilities working with foreign entities?
Roanoke Times Editorial:  About McDonnell’s Conviction
Roanoke Times, 9-5-2014, Pg 5: Editorial; Our view: What the jury said
This editorial sums up very well the very disturbing saga of Gov. and Mrs McDonnell and their sad fall from grace to disgrace.
It is inconceivable to me, that a Governor, lawyer and former Va AG would allow himself and his family to be compromised by such an obvious charlatan.
The dysfunctional marriage and out of control spouse may have been a contributor to the problem but certainly is not even close to a valid excuse.
I continue to have doubts about the Quid pro Quo concept (the heart of the felony charges); and apparently the
RT Editor does too:
“Perhaps the most extraordinary thing about McDonnell’s conviction – and the thing that ought to really get the attention of politicians – is that the governor didn’t really do much of anything in return for all those gifts”

McAuliffe And The Hypocrisy Of Ethics
Report cites favoritism for Terry McAuliffe and brother of Hillary Clinton
 “A Department of Homeland Security watchdog report issued Tuesday blasted the agency’s No. 2 official for repeatedly intervening on behalf of well-connected participants in an investor-visa program, including Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-Va.) and Tony Rodham, a brother of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The inspector general report faults Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas for creating “an appearance of favoritism and special access” as a result of highly unusual steps he took while serving as director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which oversaw the investment-based program known as EB-5.”
Hillary And Bill To White House – Maureen And Bob to Big House
Swiss bank's donations to Clinton Foundation increased after Hillary intervention in IRS dispute
Donations to the Clinton Foundation by Swiss bank UBS increased tenfold after Hillary Clinton intervened to settle a dispute with the IRS early in her tenure as secretary of state, according to a published report.
Overreach in the McDonnell case? Five former AG’s see it, too
