Support Due Process: No Plea Deal for Hillary Clinton

On August 9th, 2017, media sources (Daily Wire, Allen B. West) released articles stating the Department of Justice may offer Hillary Clinton a plea bargain with regard to her mishandling of classified information.
The deal is outlined in The Daily Wire as follows:
"Under the Justice Department’s plea offer, Hillary would be required to sign a document admitting that she committed a prosecutable crime. In return, the DOJ would agree not to bring charges against Hillary in connection with the email probe.
Also as part of the agreement, the Justice Department would not proceed with an investigation of Hillary’s pay to play deals with foreign governments and businessmen who contributed to the Clinton Foundation or who paid Bill Clinton exorbitant speaking fees."
The possibility of this plea deal for Hillary Clinton is an affronting slap in the collective face of ALL Americans. On this issue of mishandling classified information alone, to suggest she sign a document admitting she committed the crime (essentially a confession), but fail to levy charges against her FOR that crime is unacceptable. The same crime for your average military member would equate to prosecution and, based on my experience, a very long time in the brig.
To additionally suggest the DOJ would DROP the investigation into her manipulation of financial interactions with foreign governments and her own foundation as it relates the Presidential campaign, is the exact OPPOSITE of the campaign reform needed in our election process.
Am I, as an American citizen and a veteran who has served our country my entire adult life, supposed to believe that our Department of Justice holds two standards of the very justice it is named for and sworn to uphold? One standard for the "elite" and another for people like me? Further, plea deals are typically made to GAIN something in return. I would like to know EXACTLY what Hillary Clinton has to offer which would entice the DOJ to entertain such a reckless and utterly illogical course of action. What value added does this deal have for our country that we would dismiss the mountain of evidence against her?
This possible course of action would simply be a failure to hold our government officials responsible for their actions. To offer this deal and NOT pursue DUE LEGAL PROCESS, drips of the very political hypocrisy which has created our fractured state of national affairs and divided the entire nation. WE THE PEOPLE, DEMAND due process based on the evidence of her crimes. Due process as it is applied to ALL Americans in a court of law.
Hillary Clinton is not special and certainly not more valuable to our nation than any one of our military members and veterans, living or dead. To allow this plea deal to take place is equal to discarding the unimaginable sacrifice of our veterans and their families who served throughout history to establish and maintain individual liberty and freedom in our great nation. To allow this deal is to discard the daily efforts of American citizens to build their lives, care for their families and work toward the American dream.
Support this petition for action and STOP any plea bargain the DOJ may consider with regard to the investigations of Hillary Clinton.
