James Comey’s announcement that the FBI wouldn’t recommend criminal prosecution of Hillary Clinton or her top aides isn’t just disgusting. It’s proof that the fix is in to protect Mrs. Clinton. According to this article, “Comey began his address by explaining what investigators found during their investigation. He said that the investigation showed that 110 emails in 52 email chains were determined to include classified information at the time they were received.”
The FBI’s statement is typical Clinton-speak. That’s particularly apparent when they said “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past.”
That’s BS. The Justice Department brought charges against Gen. Petraeus for much less. He plead guilty “for sharing classified information with his biographer and lover, Paula Broadwell.”
Speaker Ryan issued this statement about the FBI’s findings.
It’s a sad day for the rule of law. It’s a great day for elitists like Hillary. She’s just been told that she can break the law with impunity. This part of Speaker Ryan’s statement says it all:
No one should be above the law. But based upon the director’s own statement, it appears damage is being done to the rule of law. Declining to prosecute Secretary Clinton for recklessly mishandling and transmitting national security information will set a terrible precedent. The findings of this investigation also make clear that Secretary Clinton misled the American people when she was confronted with her criminal actions.
I’m not big into conspiracy theories. I’ll simply say this: Hillary Clinton was treated differently than David Petraeus. Hugh Hewitt tweeted that “nobody is above the rule of law.” That statement should be modified to include “except the Clintons. Apparently, the rule of law doesn’t apply to them.”
