Hillary Investigation

Recently on Facebook I have seen an anti-Hillary Clinton meme that says "those who are under criminal investigation should not be allowed to run for office until they are cleared of all charges."  This seems very appealing because Hillary Clinton is an unsympathetic character and most conservatives don't want her to run for election.

If an unscrupulous person were running a law enforcement agency, they could come up with a reason to investigate almost anyone.   That would give them a veto over almost anyone running for office.  Any state or local police organization could prevent someone from running for president, governor or other office, just by opening an obviously unfounded, politically motivated investigation.

Even if it were only for Federal crimes, that means the FBI could be used as a political tool to falsely accuse people of crimes, only to clear them just after the election.   I loath Hillary and I think she is guilty, but we are innocent until proven guilty and our rights should not be taken until we are proven guilty.  We lose our rights to run for office, vote, or own guns only when convicted, not accused; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
