Clinton Gets Off Scot Free On Email Scandal

Listen to story:

FEATURING MARCY WHEELER – FBI Director James Comey announced this week that his agency would not be bringing charges against presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State. Republicans had been leading the push to charge Clinton, who their abhor, and responded to Comey’s announcement with predictable outrage.

But there is a deeper issue at work that transcends political party. There is a clear contradiction between what Clinton says she did, and what government agencies say she did. Clinton says she never sent or received classified material. But apparently she did.

  1. I’m not in a position to listen to this now. But it is interesting how people looking toward the deeper or fundamental processes focus in now that the fairly prosaic stuff of legality and procedure has cleared out least momentarily.
    It interesting to see how the Clintons are always there when they need you. Always right in your way. Perhaps this will go on smoldering away like an Exocet missile loaded with hydrofluoric acid that has burrowed deep into the mother ship.
