Moncks Corner, SC asked in Criminal Law, Civil Rights, Constitutional Law and Securities Law for Ohio

Q: Can I take the justice system to court?

So this Hilary incident that happened recently, may I take the entire justice system to court? I know that is an ambitious question but that was a blatant disregard of the law. I do not care that she is running for president, she broke the law and endangered national security. Why does she get to walk? At the very least she should have her clearances revoked and forced to resign her campaign. Seriously asking

A: You will not be able to successfully sue the FBI or Justice Department because they declined to prosecute Hillary. Law enforcement and prosecutors make decisions every day about which cases to pursue and which to decline. The concept of prosecutorial discretion has a long history in our legal system as a tool allocate resources. Sometimes that means a criminal walks.
