FBI director James Comey delivered a press conference today in which he detailed what the department’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server entailed, what they found and what they recommended.
After spending time explaining the finding of 52 email chains that contained classified information at the time it was sent, even though Hillary has stated repeated that nothing she sent or received was classified at the time, in the end, Comey announced that he is recommending to the Department of Justice that no charges be filed.
So, once again, the Clintons beat the system. Hillary Clinton will now go around the campaign trail gloating based on lies. She will no doubt continue to frame the FBI investigation as a “vast right-wing conspiracy.” She and every Democrat pundit on TV will talk about her ‘bravery’ through the investigation and how she prevailed.
In reality, what DemocRATS will have shown is that the judicial system is rigged. There are two sets of rules for elitist insiders like Hillary Clinton who constantly get away with corruption. They will have proven once again that honesty and integrity in politics are not necessary or even expected by the American people. This is the twisted narrative they pushed when Hillary’s philandering husband, Bill, had an affair with an impressionable intern while he was President of the United States, then lied about it under oath.
Comey made it a point that he did not discuss what he was about to say at the start of the conference with anyone. He no doubt felt the need to throw in that claim, though many won’t believe it, since Attorney General Loretta Lynch inappropriately met with Bill Clinton for 30 minutes days ago.
Of the 52 email chains that contained classified information at the time they were sent, again, a subject matter that Hillary has lied about over and over again, eight chains contained top secret info, 36 contained secret info at the time, and eight contained confidential information.
Comey added that he didn’t find that Hillary and her team did anything intentionally but were highly careless in their handling of top secret info. Anyone, he says, should have known better.
Since when has ‘intent’ to break the law factored into a decision of whether or not to file charges. I’d love to witness someone who has a government agency pound on their door argue that it was not their intent to fail to comply with the law and see how that works out for them.

Comey also stated even though emails weren’t marked classified, participants who know or should know that the subject matter is classified are still obligated to protect it. Hillary did not.
But, apparently, Hillary Clinton gets a pass based on “intention.”
So, the presumptive Democrat nominee not only failed to answer the call to provide additional protection at Benghazi which resulted in the deaths of four Americans, then lied about it; she also compromised national security with the transmission of a classified information on a personal email server then lied about it over and over again.
She gets off scot free for both.
No wonder so many people don’t trust the government.
