Even as the FBI Director made a clear and convincing case that felonies were committed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, her personal staff, top personnel at the State Dept., and top White House leadership; the fix was in all along.
The slow and drawn out timeline was enough evidence of the inevitable amnesty. The Justice Department knew of the non-indictment even as the Attorney General made her bravado declaration that she would totally defer to the FBI's decision.
What remains now is for General Petraeus to receive his full pardon for doing essentially a small fraction of the same conduct Hillary brazenly flaunted. Even Edward Snowden probably didn't compromise content as highly classified as the stuff Clinton and Obama knowingly transferred unsafely.
Clearly, the FBI is convinced Clinton violated serious national security statutes. As such, it is reasonable to consider Clinton a felon, just not yet adjudicated as such.
This is also clear grounds for being fired from any job in the State Department or any other job where national security is involved. She would have to fire anyone else under her for this conduct. But we have testimony that she actually ordered her subordinates to end these emails multiple times.
Director Comey used an odd standard for declining to prosecute. He cited his own unofficial polling of what the lessers of the federal court prosecutors might, in his opinion; do in an identical scenario. But even the Petraeus conviction ought to blow that finding out of the water.
If Democrats believe national security is a serious atter, they will call for Clinton's disqualification to be the DNC nominee.
