Lady Justice is often portrayed blindfolded and holding a scale, an expression of our ideal that no one is above the law and that justice should be served without partiality.
It appears that the U.S. Department of Justice no longer holds to this ideal. The rule of law will take a huge hit if Hillary Clinton's improper storage and dissemination of classified materials on her personal server doesn't warrant a criminal investigation by the FBI. It would seem that Gen. Petreaus was indicted and forced to plead guilty for far less.
In addition, we have seen over the past month some of the inner workings of Planned Parenthood as they apparently are profiting from the sale of fetal body parts and altering their abortion procedures to obtain the desired organs from unborn babies. Where is the FBI investigation of this barbaric and almost certainly illegal practice?
It is up to Attorney General Loretta Lynch to show her independence and commitment to impartiality by instituting a thorough and fair investigation of these two matters. The stability of our social compact rests upon the belief that justice will be impartial. That belief in many sectors of our society is starting to wear thin.
