If you thought Senator Bob Menendez was corrupt for taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, bars of gold bullion and a Mercedes Benz luxury automobile, wait ’til you hear about Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito (and Chief Justice John Roberts who buries his head in the sand and, in the manner of Gym Jordan, looks the other way and sees nothing).
It seems that if you are a private citizen, a former president, the son of a president or even a sitting United States senator, if you commit crimes you can be indicted.
But there is, indeed, a two-tiered system of justice. Some people ARE above the law.
They are the ones who rule on the laws that everyone else has to obey, but who proclaim themselves exempt.
Question: if Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito get convicted of bribery or corruption, will they appeal their cases all the way to the Supreme Court?
