Clearing a lowered bar in politics

It’s what you can get away with that matters now.

That was proven, yet again, by FBI Director James Comey’s long-awaited remarks Tuesday summing up the bureau’s investigation into and findings on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s rogue email server operation.

Even the New York Times didn’t hold back.

    “Too big to jail” was meant to be a joke. I guess the joke is on us.

  • He’s right, too.

    Politicians they do the crime ang get away with it , Brian Mulruney he did has much corruption he could and no punishment for him etc too much corruption everywhere in the world now.

    • My understanding is the only thing Brian Mulroney did wrong was accept “consultancy” money a couple days before he had officially given up the reigns as Prime Minister. It was purely a technicality — after all what could Mulroney legislatively accomplish with a “bribe” with only about 48 hours to go? I don’t think Parliament was even sitting. He was in the middle of packing his bags.

      It was sloppy of him and it was stupid (the Left will try to convict you for farting in the bathroom if necessary!). But that’s about it — no harm done.

    All the while piling on the laws for the rest of us… So many as to guarantee non compliance somewhere.

    Having Hillary run a campaign tainted by this issue might be better than her withdrawing due to indictment and having some Democrat “savior” taking her place.

      I’m a little partial to a perp walk followed by a trip to the gallows.

    I appreciate the grilling because it highlights how insanely broken this country is. But once you cross the threshold that there is no recognition of laws then it really no matters because, after all, we don’t have laws, then nothing will ever happen to anyone about anything. It simply no longer matters. Even Comey himself indicated that in practice there are no consequences to breaking these laws.
