So, the Director of the FBI, who is an Obama appointee, and the Attorney General of the United States, who is an Obama appointee, have decided that Hillary Clinton did not commit a felony by breaking every rule in the book in terms of handling classified material.
In the military, if you lose a piece of classified material or mishandle it, you can be reduced in grade, imprisoned, and or dishonorably discharged. But apparently in the state department it just doesn't make a damn bit of difference.
I watched James Comey go through his little routine this morning. The statute he addressed does not consider the issue of intent. Not in any way, shape, or form. It simply defines the act of mishandling classified material. It carries a felony penalty. There are other statutes that are directly related to criminal intent, but none of those were under consideration. As regards the specific law the FBI cited, if you are guilty of gross negligence in the matter of classified material, then you are guilty of violating the law.
Comey said that yes, there was abysmal negligence and it is likely Clinton and her cronies did grave harm to the security of the United States by their acts. But, he said, she didn't mean to be naughty, so he isn't recommending charges be brought. He is a tool of the Clintons, and does what he's told. Remember how Bill used the FBI when he was President. If you don't remember, check with the Branch Dravidian's at Waco. On second thought, that might not work as the FBI killed them all. Well, how about Randy Weaver from Ruby Ridge? They killed his wife and shot his son, but he's still alive.
None of us really expected anything different. After all.....
Remember when Bill sent all his appointees out to the press to say the Monica Lewinski story was completely false? The "I did not have sex with that woman" spin? Looks like a version of that going on with the "decision" not to indict Hillary.
It's pretty depressing. To know that people with money and power can do anything they want, whenever they want, and the system is rigged to keep them from suffering any consequences. But let one of the "plebs" step out of line, and watch what happens.
I'm afraid Mark Twain was right. Maybe it's all just a scam the government runs to make the "great unwashed" feel like they have some modicum of control over their own lives.
Thought for the Day.
You do what you can.
