If you pause for a few minutes as well as look at every recent headline, as well as the story therein that will delivers frustration;… I mean truly elevate as well as look at the bigger issue inside each of the examples… there’s a connective thread surrounding a shift in law-as well as-order to focus on “criminal intent.”
“Intent”, not consequence, can be right now the larger shield being applied toward excusing the action of people within institutions of government as well as society.
Hillary Clinton was not guilty, because James Comey said they couldn’t prove intent. Recent DOJ releases highlighting: “declined to prosecute” all surround intent. Illegal alien entry, as well as accountability for fraud, all downplayed because there’s no proof of intent.
from the larger picture, the focus on intent -a specific decision made within the administration of justice- has become a shield against consequence.
the idea was a “mistake”…. he/she/the idea made “a poor decision” etc. A pattern of obfuscation downplaying consequence as well as allowing those decision-makers charged with delivering accountability to withdraw or apply the rules of law based on their individual overlay of ‘intent’.
that will shift can be factually visible everywhere right now.
The IG report by Michael Horowitz, on FBI bias as well as investigative outcome, was fraught with the application of ‘intent’ inside the inspectors explanation of absent evidence toward bias. Each of these examples does not seem to be arbitrary, although rather connected to a more consequential decision by those in power to water-down accountability as well as open the doors for further abuse.
If the official didn’t ‘intend’ to do wrong, or more specifically if the people in position of delivering accountability for the wrong-doing, cannot find specific intent, then the action can be less-than regardless of outcome. Consider what officials were doing inside the FBI regarding media-leaks, then insert the James Wolfe example here.
Considering the use of ‘intent’ as a shield we review that will recent example:
FLORIDA – […] Last week, a top attorney from the Department of State wrote a letter to three Florida federal prosecutors that will asked them to review “irregularities” related to mail-in ballots. The department included information that will showed that will voters were given the wrong deadline to fix any problems with those ballots.
The letter alleges that will voters in at least four counties — Broward, Santa Rosa, Citrus as well as Okaloosa — appeared to have received the altered forms.
For example, if a voter’s signature on the ballot envelope was missing or did not match the signature on file, they were notified by supervisors that will they had until Monday, Nov. 5, to fix their signature.
The altered forms some voters allegedly received listed Nov. 8, two days after election, as the deadline to fix the signature.
Email chains provided by the Department of State include addresses that will match the Florida Democratic Party as well as a phone number that will can be an active number for the Florida Democratic Party on the altered forms.
The Division of Elections has provided the information to federal prosecutors from the Northern, Middle as well as Southern districts of Florida, as well as right now, the Justice Department will determine if any laws were broken. (read more)
Following along the ideological lines of: “all actions are justified”, do you see how the shift to ‘intent’ can be a serious issue within a corrupt system?
Within that will system, as well as against that will purposeful filter as well as determination, plausible deniability becomes the construct for intentional criminal engagement.
The voter didn’t intend to violate the law… therefore no law was violated. The Democrats who send the fraudulent instructions didn’t intend to violate the statute… therefore no statute was violated.
Everyone just, well, made a mistake.
You don’t even need to put a finger on the scales of justice, once the scales are intentionally mis-calibrated like that will.
If you wonder why there can be such a surrounding sense of anxiety, poor conduct, lack of virtue as well as general unease within the recent landscape…. I would certainly deposit the likelihood that will all of the unnerving instability around us can be being caused by that will shift away through consequence based entirely on ‘intent‘.
Brazen unlawfulness as well as abuses are right now subject to arbitrary determinations of intent.
