What an honorable guy, filled with integrity and courage.
The FBI has announced it will not make any changes to its July decision on Hillary Clinton’s emails, meaning the Democratic nominee will not be charged.
Congressman Jason Chaffetz tweeted out the massive news on Sunday afternoon.
‘FBI Dir just informed us “Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Sec Clinton”,’ Chaffetz wrote. Speaking to reporters with Clinton in Cleveland, Ohio, Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri confirmed the camp had seen Comey’s letter.
Well, THAT was sure quick, wasn’t it?
When even TIM TEBOW is tweeting politics, that’s a pretty good sign that the average American is not buying the FBI’s inaction. He tweeted this earlier.
Hillary: I never received classified emails.
FBI: You had your maid print classified emails.
Hillary: You got me. Now what?
There is also this from @magicroyalty:
It took FBI Director Comey 1 yr to go through 60K emails, and 4 days to go through 650K emails. Nothing to see here folks! #RiggedSystem
72,222 A Day
3000 An Hour
50 A Minute

15 months, as it happens.
Comey is just another corrupt DC hack only interested in maintaining his front-row seat at the slop trough, and nothing more. That’s all he ever was.
One thing that has always amused me has been the numerous occasions when I’d see people expressing shocked surprise over some Admiral or General or other JCS type turning out to be a political hack, as if the Pentagon was immune to this sort of thing for some reason. Cousin Reggie explained it to me years ago: they were where they were in the DC swamp for a reason, and that reason did not necessarily include what most of us think of as the traditional military virtues. Those may or may not have been present at some point during their careers, but if they were, it’s necessary to suppress them to advance in Washington.
That’s just the nature of the place; integrity, honesty, and courage are NOT rewarded there. Quite the opposite, in fact. Comey is just another smelly, noxious demonstration of it, and nobody should be at all surprised. Anybody who doesn’t get this just doesn’t get Washington, and doesn’t recognize what kind of government we really have there.
Comey reopened the investigation not because he was afraid of having missed something important, but because he was afraid of having not covered his ass adequately enough. He had his people take a quick, cursory look at the “new” evidence, and decided he was in the clear and his whitewash might be able to withstand closer scrutiny. It’s business as usual in Mordor on the Potomac, and our only hope for seeing any kind of positive change, slim though it may be, is one Donald J Trump. Like it or not, them’s the facts, people.
