Clinton and the FBI
The FBI director announced to the world that Hillary Clinton and many of her associates are liars and, at best, “extremely careless.”
Basically, they are liars and incompetent.
But 40 percent of U.S. voters will still vote for her, although they have no reason to trust her, her judgment or that of her associates.
You don’t suppose the FBI is afraid of Hillary, do you?
No doubt she will become president and could wreak her vengeance on Jan. 21.
On the other hand, we still have four months to anticipate the next illegal executive order from President Obama.

The FBI director said that Hillary Clinton was guilty of “careless” handling of classified material, an action that would bring mortals to their knees.
For a service member, the path is straightforward: loss of clearance, judicial or nonjudicial punishment, potential service separation and, if he or she survives all that and remains in the service, zero promotion potential and throw-away assignments.
It seems that Clinton will be the next president, so she will need the highest security clearance.
Because careless handling of classified material is an automatic disqualification for a clearance, who will validate a new or updated clearance?
Certainly not a career bureaucrat. Most likely the first political appointee in the chain, because they have a cavalier attitude about the law.
There are, indeed, two classes in this country: the people and the elites, and never the two shall meet.
William S. Taylor,
I was saddened to watch FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch remove the blindfold from Lady Justice.
She’s now able to give a wink and a nod to whomever has power.
I’ve witnessed “justice for all” suffer a brutal blow.

“Intent” now overrides the laws of our land.
In that case, I want that “F” I received in Business Law to be changed to an “A.” I didn’t intend to get that “F.”
Maybe I was a tad careless, but I might have been on the honor roll had that grade been changed because of professors misreading my intent.
The director of the FBI sent a mixed message to the public.
Gen. David Petraeus had no intention of exposing top secrets, but he was prosecuted.
Seems like a double standard. But then he was not a Democrat running for president.

As an aircraft commander with a top-secret clearance, had I done a fraction of what Clinton did, I would be in Leavenworth or executed for treason.
But she might be our next president. God help us!

First it was the “conservative” chief justice upholding Obamacare.
Now it’s the “straight-shooting” FBI director laying out a great case for holding Hillary Clinton criminally responsible for her email scandal, only to declare that “no reasonable prosecutor” would file that great case.
Now I understand why Hillary flew with President Obama, why Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton, and why Lynch said she would accept the FBI’s decision.
I call to order this meeting of the Liars Club.
James E. Cook,
The Hillary “fix” is in.
