We now live in a banana republic:
FBI Director James Comey announced that an investigation has uncovered that while Hillary Clinton “used several different” email servers and numerous devices during her time as secretary of state, the agency is not recommending the Justice Department bring charges against Clinton.
“Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before deciding whether to bring charges,” Comey said.
Apparently whether an elected public official deliberately and consideredly broke thousands of federal laws was not one of those "considerations".
And of course, after investing millions of dollars in an intense criminal probe, and unearthing some tens of thousands of individual federal felonies (FTR Chuck Colson was sent to prison for one), the head of the FBI came to the same conclusion, purely coincidentally, as Bernie Sanders did on Day One of the presidential race:
Laws are only for the little people.
This is howl-worthy, and the FBI director, while avoiding a future case of Arkansas Flu, has just joined the ranks of Benedict Arnold, Vidkun Quisling, and Neville Chamberlain as one of the foulest national betrayers in world history.
If you can get to the head of the FBI, what's left?
And if cabinet secretaries don't have to obey the laws, why should anyone else?
This is earth-shattering, and the repercussions have only started to ripple.
Make your future plans with today's news in mind.
Lee Greenwood was unavailable for comment.
But it just got a lot easier to find the quid pro quo from AG Lynch's and Fat Bill's little Phoenix airport tarmac confab, didn't it?
It's always best to hide things in plain sight.
And hey, Mr. Comey, maybe you were sick that day in FBI Agent school, but here's the relevant law:
- 18 US Code Section 793(f)(f)Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.
That means doing it accidentally is still good for 10 years in the big house, you treasonous spineless fucktard.
