I don’t much like being regarded as an idiot . . . which is what I’d have to be to swallow some of this stuff.
Join the club, guy. With the difference that most of us aren't hardwired to presume the FBI’s integrity after some of the crap they've been caught in, most recently this. And
There was no chance on God’s green earth that President Obama and his
Justice Department were ever going to permit an indictment of Hillary
Clinton. Jim Comey says he didn’t make his final decision to recommend
against prosecution until after Mrs. Clinton was interviewed at the end
of the investigation, and that he did not coordinate that decision with
his Obama-administration superiors. If he says so, that’s good enough
for me. But it doesn’t mean the director made his decision detached from
the dismal reality of the situation. And whatever one’s
armchair-quarterback view on how he should have handled it, that reality
was not of his making.
sounds an awful lot like "Hey, he figured Justice wouldn't indict, so he recommended no prosecution, can't blame him for that." Yes, we can; it means he made the decision based on politics, not the law, and his being so pissy about being called on it is bullshit. That- again- makes this 'special rules for special people, so don't you peasants get the idea YOU'LL get the same breaks.' And coming from the head of the EffingBI, that means "Why trust them? 'Equal Justice' my ass."
