In a shocking announcement, FBI Director James Comey recommended that no charges be brought against Hillary Clinton for “Servergate” when she served as Secretary of State.
Here’s the truth-is-stranger-than-fiction report from Newsmax:
“There is no basis for criminal charges to be filed against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State, FBI Director James Comey said Tuesday.
“Even so, he emphasized that Clinton and her staff were ‘reckless’ and ‘extremely careless’ in handling official and personal communications.
“‘Prosecutors necessarily weight a number of factors before deciding whether to bring charges,’ said Comey in a press conference, noting that there are obvious considerations like the strength of the evidence and the matter of using responsible decisions.
“‘They also consider the context of a person’s actions and how similar situations have been handled in the past. In looking back at our investigations, into the mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts.’“
Over the 4th of July weekend, following the controversy surrounding a private meeting between U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, Lynch said that she would not remove herself from the case, but would likely follow the FBI’s recommendations.
This hardly seems like a coincidence given the timing of the meeting less than a week before Director Comey made this announcement. It looks like more corrupt politics as usual, Bill and Hillary Clinton style, where they’re above the laws made for common folks like us.
Do you think that Bill Clinton made a threat, promise or possibly both to make sure that Loretta Lynch and James Comey didn’t indict Hillary?
