Where Is Justice?
"We the jury find that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case."
Deep down inside, we knew the Obama Justice Department would never prosecute Hillary Clinton. Especially once we learned that Clinton was exchanging emails on her private server with Obama, those in the know figured it out. The fix was in. I figured Loretta Lynch would make the call and hoped that at least James Comey would resign in protest. Instead, Comey himself made the announcement.
What Comey failed to address was the fact that if classified information was mishandled or compromised, no intent to commit a crime need be present. Even there he ignored the email where Hillary ordered her aides to change the heading on a classified communication and send it unclassified. There is your intent.
One can only wonder what David Petraeus is thinking right now. The FBI wasted no time in taking him down for a similar offense. Hillary Clinton spent four years doing what Petraeus did once.
In addition, this puts more of a cloud on last week's meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch. We will likely never know what was really said on that plane.
To say I am disappointed in James Comey and the FBI is an understatement. Worse yet, I have lost my faith in the very justice system that I was a part of for 25 years. It is clear that Hillary and Bill Clinton live above the law.
