A presidential nominee for the office of the president of the United States of America is currently facing criminal investigation by the FBI, yet she is not being asked to step down.
Last week , a woman came forward to accuse Clarence Thomas, a justice of the supreme court of the United States,of sexual assault,yet no one is asking the justice to step down or step aside.
But here, some are calling for judges to step down because they are being suspected (not even accused) of doing something wrong!
Meanwhile, it has been weeks now since that nightly showbiz ‘gra gra’ in which the secret police, also called DSS, invaded the homes of judges, yet no one has been charged to court.
When you conduct a successful sting operation, it means you have collected direct and irrefutable evidence to nail the suspect. It means you caught the suspect in the act.
The DSS told us that their sting operation was successful, so why can’t they charge the judges to court? Don’t they have lawyers to draft the charge?
Or was it all a ploy hatched to ask those judicial officers to step down?
