Above the Law

above the lawAre some people above the law?

FBI Director Comey told Congress that Hillary was “extremely careless” and “negligent.” He said she lied about classified information on her private server (but not to the FBI). And he said her lawyers wiped emails from her server. Then he let her off the hook.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch, uninfluenced by her surprise meeting with Bill Clinton, proclaimed the case closed.

Above The Law

Paul Mirengoff at Powerline thinks Comey was protecting the will of the people. Democratic voters didn’t care about her emails when they nominated her for president.

But Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan says, “Americans’ trust in their government is at an all-time low.”

Considering police killings of Alton Sterling and  Philando Castile, followed by the murder of five police officers in Dallas, Congressman Jordan might have a point.

Speaking of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, I haven’t used this punchline in a while.

This is Attorney General Edwin Meese in 1988.

Here’s Todd Purdum in Politico:

Twenty years after the New York Times columnist William Safire first called Clinton “a congenital liar” in print, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus could still rouse his convention delegates in Cleveland with an unyielding refrain about the emails. “She lied,” Priebus cried. “And she lied over and over and over. She lied! She lied!”

Clinton Lynch Grandchildren Caper

The Clinton Lynch Grandchildren Caper has taken on a life of its own.

According to Observer.com AG Loretta Lynch was minding her own business on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor airport. Then Bill Clinton dropped in for a visit.

The FBI and secret service knew Clinton and Lynch would both be passing though. They hoped to get Clinton out before Lynch touched down in order to avoid a motorcade traffic jam. No such luck. Clinton’s Motorcade dawdled, then Bill then stepped out, strolled over to Lynch’s plane, and walked in.  No one threw him to the ground.

Grandchildren Conference

He spent about 30 minutes with Lynch talking “grandchildren.”

As Attorney General it’s up to Lynch to decide whether to prosecute Bill’s wife Hillary based on the FBI investigation of her private email server. Lynch admits her impromptu meeting with Bill was “bad optics.” She says she plans to accept whatever action the FBI and Justice Department recommends.

Now the ball’s in FBI Director Comey’s court. He won’t be talking “grandchildren.”

 

 

The Struggle Continues

The Struggle Continues

Hillary is the presumptive nominee but Bernie says, “The struggle continues!”

President Obama says, “I endorse Hillary.” “I don’t think there’s ever been a more qualified candidate to hold the office.”

And what does FBI Director Comey say?

Hillary’s Lies

Hillary's Lies

The State Department Inspector General’s Report says Hillary broke the rules by using her home brew email server for official business. Hillary has insisted that her email setup was “allowed by the Stat Department”. It wasn’t. She lied.

Hillary’s Lies

Jonah Goldberg says Hillary’s lies are different than The Donald’s lies. His are spontaneous. Hers are premeditated.

Unlike Donald Trump’s lies, which he usually vomits up spontaneously like a vesuvian geyser, Clinton’s were carefully prepared, typed up, and repeated for all the world to hear over and over again…

Meanwhile, Clinton — who lives many time zones away from the word “entertaining” — is marketing herself as the mature and upstanding grown-up. She does nothing spontaneously. And that means all of her lies are premeditated.
