To no one’s surprise, the FBI won’t seek the indictment of Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. And to no one’s surprise, the announcement came just a few days after husband Bill had a private meeting with the FBI’s boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Just days after Lynch said she would accept the FBI’s recommendation, whatever it was.
And to no one’s surprise, a report in the official Democratic Newsletter (aka The New York Times), has Hillary Clinton keeping Lynch as attorney general in the new H. Clinton administration.
Do Americans need any more evidence to believe that those in government have standards that are different than most Americans? That those standards are more lax than the rest of us face? How long can Americans continue to stomach this?
I’m not a lawyer, so maybe, just maybe, the FBI doesn’t have enough evidence to bring charges against H. Clinton. Or, maybe, just maybe, stinky political pressure was brought to bear throughout this entire mess. [UPDATE] FBI Director James Comey explained in a press conference that he couldn’t recommend charges because H. Clinton’s intent to disclosed classified information could not be proved. Nonetheless, Comey did accuse H. Clinton and the State Department of being “extremely careless” in the handling of those her unsecure emails, possibly disclosing state secrets. What he didn’t say was that under a separate law, prosecutors did not have to prove intent; “gross negligence” is sufficient cause for an indictment. The legal definition of “gross negligence” is “extremely careless.” That leaves open the possibility that H. Clinton did violate the law because by anyone’s standards, the way she handled those emails was grossly negligent. Might I also add arrogant and suspicious.
Comey’s complete statement is here. You should read the entire thing. Especially if you think that Comey completely exonerates H. Clinton.
But the fact remains, H. Clinton’s handling of her emails and the aftermath leaves serious questions about her judgment and honesty. Just as the entire Benghazi affair.
A side note here: The recently released Benghazi committee report that “didn’t find anything new” merely confirmed that H. Clinton is a liar and that a high-level cover-up occurred to save President Barack Obama’s butt in the upcoming election. How Nixon-like.
We’ll hear a lot of crowing from the partisan left how this proves that the entire email affair was a witch-hunt that was a part of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” to nail H. Clinton. As if H. Clinton’s actions were as pure as the freshly driven snow.
But the stench of this will long remain, a foreboding of what four (or eight) more years of what an H. Clinton administration will smell like. Rotting fish.
