APPROVED, July 27, 1789, the FIRST CONGRESS:
SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That there shall be an Executive department, to be denominated the Department of Foreign Affairs(Today known as the Department of State).
SECTION. 3. And be it further enacted, That the said principal officer, and every other person to be appointed or employed in the said department, shall, before he enters on the execution of his office or employment, take an oath or affirmation, well and faithfully to execute the trust committed to him.
SEC. 4. And be it further enacted, That the Secretary for the Department of Foreign Affairs, to be appointed in consequence of this act, shall forthwith after his appointment, be entitled to have the custody and charge of all records, books and papers in the office of Secretary for the Department of Foreign Affairs, heretofore established by the United States In Congress assembled.
On January 21, 2009 Hillary Rodham Clinton was sworn in as Secretary of the Department of State(Originally the Department of Foreign Affairs): “I, Hillary Rodham Clinton, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
With that, Hillary Clinton became the responsible “custodian” of all records, books and papers(which includes e-mails) of the entire Department of State – this is a sworn responsibility we find in the U.S. Constitution – under merit of “well and faithfully to execute the trust committed”! In March of this year, we learned that Hillary Rodham Clinton - while in the capacity of Secretary of State - may have destroyed e-mails that could have been subjected to such “custodial” requirements.
Now according to 18 U.S.C.: § 2071 - Any custodian of a public record who "willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys (any record) shall be fined not more than $2,000 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."
Fact 1: Hillary Rodham Clinton was the defacto “Custodian” of State Department “Records”, through the “Oath of Office”.
Fact 2: Hillary Rodham Clinton has already admitted to destroying “Records”.
Fact 3: By refusing to turn over the “SERVER” in question wherein Hillary Rodham Clinton deposited e-mails of State Department interest during her tenure as “Secretary of State”, that finds merit under “Unlawful Concealment”.
Fact 4: “That the books, records, and other papers of the United States, that relate to this department, be committed to his custody, to which, and all other papers of his office, any member of Congress shall have access: Provided, That no copy shall be taken of matters of a secret nature, without the special leave of Congress” - in which a “leave” under such “custodial” responsibility had not been granted by Congress. Hillary Rodham Clinton has also denied Congressional access to the e-mails in question.
Guilty of violating the law? YES, so what does it mean – read the fine print: “BE DISQUALIFIED FROM HOLDING ANY OFFICE UNDER THE UNITED STATES”!
If “We the People” refuse to hold Hillary Rodham Clinton responsible for violating the law, it means the “Constitution” is under attack!
PS. I am not a republican, just a “True American” that wants justice served for what appears to be a “crime” committed against the U.S. Constitution.
