He admits she broke the law, but recommends letting her off the hook.

I'd say that qualifies as straight bullshit.

If at the end he'd said, "And fuck all of you," it wouldn't even have made it worse. That's how straight-up bullshit it was.

I'm in a state of shock. He tells us she violated laws, but wont recommend indictment because there was no ill intent. Get drunk and have an accident while driving. Then tell the cop there was no ill intent. See how far that gets you.

And even then he's lying, she said to remove the header indicating they were Top Secret emails, and that she could avoid FOIA requests. There was no question that it was done with ill will.

Notice how he also said that this does not set a precedent for similar situations? He might as well said "Hilary is above the law, common folk will still be charged."

Hmm, maybe it's time for a refresher course. I vote we do it French style since this time the "royals" aren't an ocean away.

July Fifth = Dependence Day

We celebrate by exempting our political leaders from the laws they impose on the rest of us because we are dependant upon their leadership.

Is the door still open to file charges regarding the Clinton foundation? From the sound of it that eclipses any scandal that happened with the email server.

I genuinely do hope they move forward on investigating the Clinton Foundation, but after today I'm not holding my breath.

I could see it happening if trump isn't part of their club, and if he is elected, and if their threats don't work on him, and if he decides to go after crooked politicians; then she will be the first on that list.

It's going to be interesting the next time someone gets caught playing fast and loose with classified material. Their lawyer will try to play the "but Hillary..." get out of jail free card and they're going to have to straight up admit that only high ranking members of the oligarchy can play that special card.

Comey already addressed this:

"To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now."

Just because she broke the law, doesnt mean she should be arrested. Thats dumb, its not like she deliberately circumvented laws so that she could hide stuff.

I think its time we brought the court from the batman movie to life.
