Corruption: When FBI Director James Comey dismissed the case against Hillary Clinton he said it was because no reasonable attorney would take the case. Now we learn that there were plenty who would have done so.
When Comey made his statement about the case in July, he painted a devastating portrait of Hillary Clinton's reckless use of a private email server while Secretary of State.
Clinton knew little to nothing about handling classified material. She sent and received top secret information on an unsecured private email system and was otherwise extremely careless with national security secrets. She likely exposed sensitive material to enemies, and hid thousands of work emails that were supposed to have been turned over. And she or her top staff probably broke the law.
Then, Comey simply shrugged his shoulders and said that "no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case."
"Reasonable" is the operative word there. This implication is that, while a partisan hack might bring such a case, no legitimate prosecutor would.
But it turns out that this was an utterly false claim. Fox News reported on Wednesday that there were many "reasonable" attorneys who would have done so. "Career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged," Fox reports.Read the rest of this IBD editorial HERE.
