New York, NY -(Ammoland.com)- What follows is a copy of the letter we sent to Representative Turner, as mentioned Part Two of the present article series.
You can help us and yourselves, and you can help our Nation, our system of laws, and our sacred Bill of Rights by contacting your Representatives in Congress. Contact them today.
Tell them to to act on the on Independent Counsel Reauthorization Act of 2016
Tell them that you will not let them sit this one out. Reluctance to take a stand, to act, is not an option, not now, not when so much is at stake—more so now, than ever before. The future of this Nation hangs in the balance.
Tell your Congressional Delegation that you are aware a bill is pending in Congress, the “Independent Counsel Reauthorization Act of 2016,” that will give Congress the clout it needs to bring Hillary Rodham Clinton, and her husband, and the Clinton Foundation—the entirety of the Clinton Dynasty—to justice.
Tell your Representatives in Congress that you demand integrity in the Executive Branch of Government and that, since, the Executive Branch refuses to police itself and is obviously content to allow corruption in the Executive Branch to continue to exist and, in fact, to grow unchecked, Congress must step in and put a stop to that corruption and Congress must step in and put a stop to that corruption now.
Congress must do so to prevent even the possibility that Hillary Clinton might set foot in the Oval Office.
The possibility of a Hillary Rodham Clinton Presidency is too horrible even to contemplate. Let a Hillary Rodham Clinton Presidency be consigned to fiction—to a novel in the genre of horror, such as Mary Shelley’s classic, “Frankenstein” or Bram Stoker’s, “Dracula.”
Do not allow a Hillary Rodham Clinton Presidency become a Reality, for she and her family and the family’s Foundation will prey on all of us, and bleed us dry. Make no mistake. That is what is in store for us. That will happen if Americans fail to prevent it from happening.
We provide, here, in full, our recent letter to Representative Mike Turner, Republican, Ohio, sponsor of the “Independent counsel Reauthorization Act of 2016.”

Re: H.R. 5271
I am an attorney who specializes in Constitutional law. With my colleagues we publish the Arbalest Quarrel, a unique, informative website, specializing in formal analyses of State and federal firearms’ legislation and court decisions. Our articles are published throughout the Nation, in major magazines, read by millions of people.
We are writing to you in reference to H.R. 5271, a bill you sponsored and that Representative Rick Allen cosponsored. You introduced the bill on May 17, 2016. The public knows the bill by its short title: the “Independent Counsel Reauthorization Act of 2016.” If enacted, H.R. 5271 would reauthorize Chapter 40 of Title 28 of the United States Code. H.R. 5271 amends Section 599 of Title 28. Your bill also amends the sunset provision of the previous bill: the “Independent Counsel Reauthorization Act of 1994.” Specifically, the present bill amends the expiration date of the previous bill, codified in Section 591(b) (7) of Title 28, from five years to eight years.
H.R. 5271 was referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary on the day you sponsored it, May 17, 2016; and we know, too, that H.R. 5271 was also referred to the House Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, on May 20, 2016. What we don’t know—and what we would like to know—is the status of H.R. 5271 at this time.
You sponsored H.R. 5271 over three months ago. The bill appears to be languishing in Committee and Subcommittee. The United States Presidential Election is around the corner. Have the House Committee on the Judiciary and the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice acted on H.R. 5271? If not, why not? Do you anticipate H.R. 5271 passing Committee? If not, when do you and Representative Allen anticipate that both the House Committee and the Subcommittee will pass the bill so it may be debated in Chamber and, eventually, voted on before the full House? We implore both you and Representative Allen to spur action on H.R. 5271 if it is deliberately being held in abeyance.
We know that both you and Representative Allen share our concern. Were that otherwise, you would not have sponsored H.R. 5271. The American people have dire need of it.
Without passage of H.R. 5271 Hillary Rodham Clinton will escape justice. Worse, were Hillary Clinton elected President of the United States, the American people will have elected a person who likely violated federal law during her tenure as a Cabinet level official, Secretary of State in the Obama Administration, and who likely continued to violate federal law thereafter. Historical records will document that the American people had elected, for the first time in our Nation’s history, a person whose corruption is manifest before that person assumed the highest Office in the Land.
Hillary Clinton likely violated 18 U.S.C. § 793. Title 18 of the U.S. Code is titled “Crimes and Criminal Procedure.” 18 U.S.C. § 793 falls within Chapter 37. Chapter 37 is titled, “Espionage and Censorship.” 18 U.S.C. § 793 is titled, “Gathering, transmitting, or losing defense information.” Hillary Clinton likely violated 18 U.S.C. § 793 because substantive and substantial evidence exists that she mishandled, either intentionally or through gross negligence, classified Government information during her tenure as Secretary of State. If convicted of mishandling classified Government information, Hillary Clinton has committed a felony. She cannot serve as President of the United States.
Hillary Clinton likely violated, 18 U.S.C. § 1001. That Section falls within Chapter 11 of the U.S. Code, titled, “Fraud and False Statements.” 18 U.S.C. § 1001 is titled, “Statements or Entries Generally.” Hillary Clinton likely violated 18 U.S.C. § 1001 because substantive evidence exists that she lied to the F.B.I., during the Bureau’s criminal investigation.If convicted of lying to F.B.I. agents, Hillary Clinton has then committed a second felony. She cannot serve as President of the United States.
Hillary Clinton likely violated 18 U.S.C. § 201. That Section falls within Chapter 11 of the U.S. Code, titled, “Bribery, Graft, and Public Corruption.” 18 U.S.C. § 201 is titled, “Bribery of Public Officials and Witnesses.” Hillary Clinton likely violated 18 U.S.C. § 1001 because substantive and substantial evidence exists that, while serving as Secretary of State, both she and her husband utilized the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation as a conduit through which wealthy donors—including individuals, foreign governments, NGOs, and multinational corporations—obtained favorable treatment at the expense of the American people and in contravention of the U.S. Constitution and in contravention of our laws.
Evidence suggests that Hillary Clinton used the Clinton Foundation as an extension of the United States Department of State, doling out favors for money, reaping a personal fortune through the influence she wielded as Secretary of State. If convicted of bribery, graft, or public corruption, Hillary Clinton has committed a third felony. She cannot serve as President of the United States.
Will accountability exist in the federal Government or not? The “Independent Counsel Reauthorization Act of 2016” would provide the clout to bring accountability to Government, reinvoking the “Ethics in Government Act of 1978.
Congress reauthorized the 1978 Act—an Act, compelling integrity in the Executive Branch of our Government—four times. Congress did not, though, reauthorize the “Ethics in Government Act of 1978” a fifth time, in 1999. Congressional failure to reauthorize the “Ethics in Government Act of 1978” occurred, curiously, during the impeachment of the 42nd U.S. President, Bill Clinton. The U.S. Senate instituted impeachment proceedings against President Clinton on charges of perjury, obstruction of justice, and abuse of power.
Need exists for immediate enactment of the “Independent Counsel Reauthorization Act of 2016.” Only through passage of H.R. 5271 into law will remediation be possible. The U.S. Department of Justice will not perform its duties. Therefore Congress must step in.
H.R. 5271 should be debated openly in Congress; and it should be voted on by the full House. The American people must know those Legislators in Congress who demand integrity in the Executive Branch of the federal Government and those Legislators in Congress who do not.
