GOP Should Call out Scandal-Plagued Rahm in Chicago
A few weeks ago, I issued a challenge to the GOP presidential candidates on Newsmax TV: call out President Obama and democrat candidate Hillary Clinton on their failure to press for Rahm Emanuel’s resignation for his role in the Laquan McDonald police shooting cover-up.
Only one of the candidates has taken me up on this challenge so far: gutsy Carly Fiorina. Here’s what she said this week: “Just imagine for one moment if the mayor of Chicago were not President Obama’s personal friend,” Fiorina said of Obama’s former White House chief of staff during an interview with Hugh Hewitt. “Just imagine for a moment if this were a Republican, what President Obama would be saying and doing.”
She called out Clinton too: “I mean, most of the time, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are right out front, way before the facts are known, in saying that the police have done something terrible here. This time, the facts are crystal clear that the police did something terribly wrong.”
Why is Fiorina the only Republican candidate to stand up and say what I’ve been saying on Newsmax for more than a month?
Why isn’t Donald Trump or Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio or Ben Carson or even Jeb Bush talking about this?
How could the RNC fail to hold President Obama and Hillary Clinton accountable for their silence on a political cover-up worse than Watergate? Is it so hard to condemn ruthless, inept Democrat Rahm Emanuel?
No one died in Watergate. But someone died in Chicago — a 17 year-old teenager by the name of Laquan McDonald who was shot while walking away from a police officer as a dash cam tape reveals.
This is not in dispute: Mayor Rahm Emanuel fought countless media FOIA requests and lawsuits for 13 months to keep the video suppressed.
His cronies in the Chicago City Council approved a hush money settlement of $5 million in taxpayer funds to the family after the election. The settlement included a clause preventing the family from speaking about the video.
On Monday, a top Chicago city lawyer resigned after he too was accused by a federal judge of hiding evidence in the case of Darius Pinex, who was shot and killed by police during a 2011 traffic stop in Chicago.
The Chicago media is now a national laughing stock. It was independent reporters who broke both the Laquan McDonald cover-up and CPS bribery scandal stories — two stories that would have sunk Emanuel’s re-election bid had they been exposed
