FBI Director James Comey announced today the the long awated results of the investigation in to Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information during her tenure as Secretary of Sate and whether or not to reccommend an indictment. The decision of course was not to, gee, big surprise. For the full statement, go here.
What’s galling is that just prior to revealing the non indictment decision, he layed out not one, or two, or even three minor mishaps, but a slew of ways HRC seriously mishandled classified information and threatened our national security. For Comey to then turn around and say no reccomendation for indictment will be forthcoming was head scratchingly bizarre.
He also said this doesn’t mean these offenses would not warrant security or administrative sanctions in other cases (i.e. if the “little people” were involved).
This comes but 5 days after a so called impromptu meeting on a private jet with Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch (hey, fancy meeting you here!), the person who holds the final say on whether or not to file charges. All this, coincidentally, came a days prior to HRC meeting with the FBI, on a Saturday no less. And oh, did I mention that Ms. Clinton now states she is considering retaining Ms. Lynch as Attorney General?
This is disturbing on many levels, but the most appalling thing is the absolute blatant disregard for even making a slight attempt to make it appear that due process is being followed. The powers that be don’t think we are stupid, they know it just doesn’t matter as nothing will impede Hillary Clinton’s cornoration.
I enjoy shopping at Banana Republic, not so much living in one.
