Clinton Email Scandal Bigger Than Clinton

Hillary_ClintonIn an announcement that surprised no one – except maybe Joe Biden, but that’s another story – FBI Director James Comey recommended Tuesday that no charges be filed against Hillary Clinton or her aides over her use of private e-mail while secretary of state.

To many, the announcement represents a galactic display of hubris and a gross miscarriage of justice. In the wake of Comey’s announcement, we must wonder: Other than being a Baltimore police officer who arrests a known felon who winds up getting hurt, what rates an indictment these days?

Indeed, Comey (essentially) admitted that:

  • No reasonable person would believe that putting these emails on a private server was anything other than unacceptable (and an end-run around congressional oversight).
  • Virtually everything this serial liar has told us about her email servers has been a lie.
  • Clinton endangered national security while serving as Secretary of State.
  • One hundred and ten emails on the server were classified at the time they were sent.
  • Clinton was “extremely careless” and “grossly negligent” in mishandling classified information.
  • Hillary deleted work-related emails before turning them over to the State Department, despite her claims to the contrary.
  • Someone caught in a similar situation would “often” be punished.
  • All you have to do to flout the law in this country is be a Clinton.

Adding insult to incredulity, Comey maintained, straight-faced, that “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring charges against Clinton.

Apparently “reasonable prosecutors” are in short supply these days.

The latest edition of the Hillary Follies smacks of billionaire hotelier Leona Helmsley’s infamous statement in which she sniffed, “Only little people pay taxes.” Or, in Clinton’s case, obey the law. Anylaw. (At least Helmsley wound up with a reserved room at the gray bar hotel.)

Outrage has been pouring in from all across the Fruited Plain.

So many additional questions surround the most recent Clintonian Scott-Free Skate, it’s hard to know where to start. Here are a few:

  • Did Comey short-circuit and subvert the grand jury process?
  • Why not let the evidence go to a grand jury and let it decide whether to issue an indictment? (That’s kind of what it’s for.)
  • Why do we have an FBI?
  • Where’s a fourth grader when we need one?
  • What’s the going rate for an Attorney General these days?
  • Why have laws in the first place when left-wing elitists are above them?

Additionally, if the prospect of a president with a well-worn track record of poor judgment and mishandling classified data doesn’t keep you awake at night, what will? Indeed, the only thing more incredulous than Comey’s announcement is the realization that some people are actually going to vote for a career corruptocrat.

Furthermore, the “no charges” recommendation in light of the evidence is not only a serious blow to the rule of law in this country, it also strikes at the very heart of our constitutional republic. Why? Because in a constitutional republic, no one is above the law (unless you’re part of the Clintonian Aristocracy). Either the law applies to everyone equally, or it’s not The Law at all. It’s a suggestion. As in, Why bother?

Robert Bolt illustrates the concept in his jurisprudential classic, A Man for All Seasons. To his son-in-law who suggests “cutting down every law in England” to “get after the Devil,” More replies: “And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned ’round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws… And if you cut them down, … do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then?”

If the Rule of Law can be “cut down” or ignored at will by any Lefty elitist and her willing lackeys whenever it stands in the way of their personal agenda or cramps their style,  who can stand upright – and how will tyranny be forestalled? What winds will then blow?

Speaker Paul Ryan reportedly plans to call Director Comey to testify about his decision to not pursue criminal charges against Clinton despite her “extremely careless” use of her private email server. Ryan and House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz are both calling for hearings into the issue.

Hope springs eternal. But I’m not holding my breath.
