It’s really long past time to get this charade over with. Everybody knows that if anyone other than Hillary Clinton was this obviously guilty, he or she would have been put away long ago. But in the new Banana Republic of El Norte, the powerful can skate:
FBI chief James Comey and his investigators are increasingly certain that presidential nominee Hillary Clinton violated laws in handling classified government information through her private email server, career agents say. Some expect him to push for charges, but he faces a formidable obstacle: the political types in the Obama White House who view a Clinton presidency as a third Obama term.
With that, agents have been spreading the word, largely through associates in the private sector, that their boss is getting stonewalled, despite uncovering compelling evidence that Clinton broke the law. Exactly what that evidence is — and how and when it was uncovered during Comey’s months-long inquiry — has not been disclosed. For the record, the FBI had no comment on the matter, and government sources say no final decision has been made.
Clinton denies she did anything wrong, claiming she had no idea she was getting classified information (a violation of federal law) on her private server during her years as Obama’s secretary of state because the documents she received contained no such headings.
And as FBI director, Comey can only recommend charges to the hacks in the Obama Justice Department. Indeed, many law enforcement officials who know the FBI chief and the bureau’s inner workings believe the evidence would have to be overwhelming for Comey to even recommend charges, much less for DOJ to pursue them.
Still, some FBI staffers suggest the probe’s at a point where Comey might quit in protest if Justice ignores a recommendation to pursue a criminal case against Clinton.
Forget Donald Trump: what’s truly stunning about this election is that one of the two major political parties is prepared to nominate a criminal for the office of president of the United States. Think about that while you’re getting agitated over whom the Republican nominee should be.
Or just contemplate this photo of Barack Obama in front of a giant portrait of Che Guevara in Cuba on Monday if you really want to realize just how far gone this country is.
Makes you proud to be an American, doesn’t it?
