Fbi Director Recommends ‘No Charges’ After Ending Clinton Email Investigation

Recommended Posts

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/jul/05/fbi-no-charges-hillary-clinton-email-investigation

The threat of criminal charges hanging over Hillary Clinton was finally lifted by the FBI on Tuesday – just hours before the presumptive Democratic nominee for president was due to begin campaigning with Barack Obama for the first time this election cycle.

At a press conference in Washington, FBI director James Comey announced the end of the year-long investigation into whether Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state warranted prosecution under laws designed to protect classified government data.

Though highly critical of the “extremely careless” way in which emails were handled, Comey said the FBI would not be recommending that prosecutors seek charges in the case.

“Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes … our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case,” said Comey.

Critically, the FBI said that other similar cases in which a prosecution had been sought involved evidence of “willful or intentional” breaches of the rules, “vast quantities” of data or “indications of disloyalty or efforts to obstruct justice”. “We do not see that here,” he said.

Great news....

The USA is a banana republic, the rule of law is applied subjectively and never against the elite. We shouldn't gloat though, the UK is just as bad, Blair still walks the streets.

Nonsense. Lefties in the US are against Clinton, that's why Sanders has far more popular support than Hitlary ever had and ever will have.

Clinton is the designated 'establishment' candidate, she's neither left nor right, just downright rotten and evil and therefore the ideal servant of the 'elites'.

Yeah, right. They're against her, but they'll vote for her en masse.

maybe so, but technically,legally:

if she has not done so intentionally(which would technically be treason), it is still gross negligence, which would warrant revocation of her security clearance.....even if no criminal charges are brought.

according to the US espionage act,even unintentional discloure of classified material is deemed a serious misdemeanour.

without security clearance she could not hold public office of any standing.

And people have been prosecuted for removing documents outside the secure zones which were not classified at the time, but later became so.

Not just prosecuted, but jailed.

No intent necessary.

The benchmark test I apply is whether an ordinary pleb like me would have been prosecuted for this gross breach of security (either in the US or UK). And the answer would probably = Yes.

For a member of the political establishment the answer once again = No.

The net result is that for anyone who takes any notice of politics at all, and who believes in fairness, their opinion of, and faith in, the political class has just gone down a notch. I guess there will be many on the regressive left who think that its worth her getting a pass just because the alternative is worse though.

Hitlary was never ahead of Sanders in the polls, with Sanders as their candidate the Democrats would win the presidency with a higher margin than with Clinton:

Poll: Sanders Outperforms Clinton in Matchup Against Trump

Sanders leads Trump by 15 points nationally over Trump, 54 percent to 39 percent, while Clinton's advantage over Trump is 10 points, 51 percent to 41 percent.

http://time.com/4242667/2016-poll-clinton-sanders-could-beat-trump/

Clinton will only win the nomination due to the undemocratic candidate selection system (which favours 'establishment' candidates), not because of popular support (which she lacks).

Clinton is so crooked and psychopathic that even many Democrats will have a hard time voting for her. Democrats are the party of the welfare class, government employees and foreigners. Guess who's pissed off as hell at Clinton getting away with crimes that would have sent any of them to jail?

And look at the primary votes: Democrat votes were way down, while Republicans had the highest turnout in a long time. There's no enthusiasm anywhere for another ******ing Clinton in the White House.

The Blowback Begins: Marine Demands Same Treatment As Hillary
20160707_brezler.JPG

The FBI's decision to recommend that no charges be brought against Hillary Clinton has been labeled a double standard of epic proportions, and now the decision will trigger further unintended consequences. A Marine Corps officer who has been locked in a legal battle with his service after self-reporting that he improperly disseminated classified information now intends to demand the same treatment that Hillary received.

Clinton is going to need a massive turn-out of the Democrat vote to win and I just don't think that she will get it. There are enough intelligent, principled Democrat voters out there who I think will just not vote.

Plenty of the dumber ones will vote for her out of hatred of Trump but I think millions of Amercian Democrats will simply conclude that Clinton has too many things in the closet. Then you add in the groundswell of people who want Trump and I think he is the guy to win in November.

you mean they will have to make up the deficit in voters the same way as they make up the number of followers on Twitter.....just like they did on the caucases with Sanders....make some votes worth 250 times more than others.
