Why is this criminal out in public giving speeches?
Why is this criminal not in jail?
Why is this criminal not on the AG’s list of investigations, etc.?
Jeff Sessions, are you a man or a mouse?....on second thought, don’t answer that.

Sure, let monumentally corrupt people like her handle all of our healthcare.

Great idea.
