A group of right-wing activists filed a “formal complaint” with the New Castle Police Department, in New York, this weekend calling for criminal charges to be brought against a notable area resident: former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton.
Members from the Equal Justice Tour, a group of radical right-wing activists advocating for the arrest of Clinton, marched to the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate’s local police department near her home in Chappaqua on Saturday to drop off the complaint documents with officers. A New Castle Police Department officer confirmed to Newsweek their arrival at roughly 2:30 p.m. local time.
A live-streamed video of the incident, shared on Facebook, depicted a member of the group handing over the documents to an officer inside the police station.
“Some of us are veterans and we swore to defend the Constitution from domestic enemies,” the activist told the officer, adding that Clinton “was a public servant and she should be held accountable, so now we’re looking to hold her accountable.”
“You, as a lawful officer, you took an oath to uphold justice, uphold the law and so these,” he added while holding up a small stack of papers that he said were “signed and notarized.”
“Okay, I will take these and I will forward them to the prosecutor,” the officer responded, politely.
The Equal Justice Tour were established in April after radical Religious Right activist Dave Daubenmire drove to Clinton’s home in Chappaqua from Ohio to stand alone in protest outside her home while demanding that President Donald Trump arrest her. During a segment on his Pass The Salt Livewebcast, Daubenmire credited God for inspiring him to make the 16-hour round-trip drive.
Daubenmire’s actions led to the group organizing a Memorial Day stunt, where they protested outside Clinton’s home and at the town’s Memorial Day parade, according to Right Wing Watch.
Following that event, Daubenmire announced that the group would return to Chappaqua in July to continue advocating for Clinton’s arrest.
“We’re going to go to Chappaqua, New York, and we’re going to file a formal complaint with Chappaqua police department, the county police department… we’re filing a police report to call for the indictment of Hillary Clinton,” he said in a video posted to social media.
