Fox News reported late Wednesday afternoon that Attorney General Loretta Lynch as expected, announced that she is following the FBI’s recommendation not to press charges against Hillary Clinton and closing the investigation into her criminal use of her private email server.
“Late this afternoon, I met with FBI Director James Comey and career prosecutors and agents who conducted the investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as Secretary of State,” Lynch said in a statement.
“I received and accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, year-long investigation be closed and that no charges be brought against any individuals within the scope of the investigation.”
The decision was largely a formality given Comey’s public statement on the case yesterday, where he recommended against any prosecution.
Donald Trump reacted flustered to the news during a campaign rally in Cincinnati, saying it was “very sad.”
He said that no email that’s deleted really goes away and he doesn’t think investigators “looked too hard.”
He also said that since Clinton should be disqualified from the race because “our enemies likely have a blackmail file on her” after her server was breached.
Lynch’s announcement should not come to be a surprise to anyone who has been following the Clinton email scandal. From the onset of the so-called FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s questionable use of her personal email server to conduct state department business, it was very obvious to anyone familiar with law enforcement procedures that the FBI was treating the investigation in a manner that would suggest the outcome had been decided before the investigation ever got started.
Could anyone really believe that Lynch was allowed to use the full power of the US Justice Department to determine whether or not Hillary violated federal laws in her use of her own personal email servers to conduct state department business? It would definitely be foolish to believe such nonsense – although I believe many American’s did in fact believe at some level that a real U.S. Justice department investigation was going on in the matter.
Corruption within the highest departments of law enforcement in our nation is a vile pill for any reasonable God fearing person to swallow. Yet over the past decade the majority of the American public has been subjected to hearing about so many scandals concerning corruption within our federal, state and local governments, that arguably many of us have just come to the conclusion that corruption within our government is to be expected.
I often day dream of a time in American when large angry mobs who believed they had been denied justice would grab their weapons in the middle of the night and march down to the local jail, demanding that the sheriff turn over a criminal that so offended the majority of the towns people, they would accept nothing less than the satisfaction of taking the law in to their own hands, often resulting in the lynching of the offender.
Funny, I often find myself smiling when I drift back to whatever task maybe before me. Maybe I have watched too many old western movies.
