Letter: We are no longer equal under the law

Forget the election. Forget conservatives versus liberals. Forget the theater that is Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton.

What saddens and disgusts me about the decision not to take some formal disciplinary action against Clinton for her blatant disregard of the rules that are meant to protect our country and its citizens, is the duplicity of it all.

What this says is that there is one set of laws for people in power like the Clintons, and another set for us “rank and file” citizens. Many federal employees have been disciplined and prosecuted for less negligence with classified material than what Clinton exhibited.

Our nation should mourn this decision, not based on our political stripes, but because it signals a very public decree that we are no longer equal in the eyes of the law.
