Too Big To Jail

I wasn’t shocked or even surprised yesterday, but I was still disgusted and disappointed. It’s kinda like when you’re waiting for those biopsy results from the oncologist. You know it’s cancer before he tells you, but hearing the official verdict isn’t any easier.

Expecting justice in Washington DC is like expecting to win the lottery. You better sit down while you’re waiting.

What happened yesterday was a whitewash, but it was not a vindication. Hillary is guilty as sin and just as ugly. She’s just too big to jail. (Nixon never went to jail either.)

The Ass Press lays it all out:

AP FACT CHECK: Clinton email claims collapse under FBI probe

Key assertions by Hillary Clinton in defense of her email practices have collapsed under FBI scrutiny.

The agency’s yearlong investigation found that she did not, as she claimed, turn over all her work-related messages for release. It found that her private email server did carry classified emails, also contrary to her past statements. And it made clear that Clinton used many devices to send and receive email despite her statements that she set up her email system so that she only needed to carry one.

FBI Director James Comey’s announcement Tuesday that he will not refer criminal charges to the Justice Department against Clinton spared her from prosecution and a devastating political predicament. But it left much of her account in tatters and may have aggravated questions of trust swirling around her Democratic presidential candidacy.

A look at Clinton’s claims since questions about her email practices as secretary of state surfaced and how they compare with facts established in the FBI probe:

CLINTON: “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.” News conference, March 2015.

THE FACTS: Actually, the FBI identified at least 113 emails that passed through Clinton’s server and contained materials that were classified at the time they were sent, including some that were Top Secret and referred to a highly classified special access program, Comey said.

Most of those emails — 110 of them — were included among 30,000 emails that Clinton returned to the State Department around the time her use of a private email server was discovered. The three others were recovered from a forensic analysis of Clinton’s server. “Any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position or in the position of those with whom she was corresponding about the matters should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation,” Comey said. Clinton and her aides “were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information,” he said.


CLINTON: “I never received nor sent any material that was marked classified.” NBC interview, July 2016.

THE FACTS: Clinton has separately clung to her rationale that there were no classification markings on her emails that would have warned her and others not to transmit the sensitive material. But the private system did, in fact, handle emails that bore markings indicating they contained classified information, Comey said.

He said the marked emails were “a very small number.” But that’s not the only standard for judging how officials handle sensitive material, he added. “Even if information is not marked classified in an email, participants who know, or should know, that the subject matter is classified are still obligated to protect it.”


CLINTON: “I responded right away and provided all my emails that could possibly be work related” to the State Department. News conference, March 2015.

THE FACTS: Not so, the FBI found.

Comey said that when his forensic team examined Clinton’s server it found there were “several thousand work-related emails that were not in the group of 30,000” that had been returned by Clinton to the State Department.


CLINTON: “I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for personal emails instead of two.” News conference, March 2015.

THE FACTS: This reasoning for using private email both for public business and private correspondence didn’t hold up in the investigation. Clinton “used numerous mobile devices to view and send email” using her personal account, Comey said. He also said Clinton had used different servers.

We have the best justice system that money can buy. The question is how much justice you can afford.

      Leona Helmsley said it best when she said laws were for the little people. I suppose the Martha Stewarts of the country are not sitting too well knowing that they had to do time (albeit country club style) while this one takes a walk in the park.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Martha would be a better president than Hillary🙂 Comey’s decision is helping Trump more than Hillary right now, according to twitter and FB. Even the msm isn’t trying to defend the decision. Many are citing early precedents where people were fined, demoted, lost their clearances for lessor security flubs. Petraeus being the most notable one.

        This is even worse than John Edwards cheating on his wife while she had cancer with a froot loop he met at a bar. Even his most rabid supporters threw their hands up in disgust that this wasn’t the man we believed he was.

  2. Myiq2xu™ says:


    In the 2004 episode that defined Mr. Comey’s time in the Bush administration, the White House counsel, Alberto R. Gonzales, and Mr. Bush’s chief of staff, Andrew H. Card Jr., sought to persuade Attorney General John Ashcroft — who was hospitalized and disoriented — to reauthorize the administration’s controversial eavesdropping program.

    Mr. Comey, who was serving as the acting attorney general and had been tipped off that Mr. Gonzales and Mr. Card were trying to go around him, rushed to Mr. Ashcroft’s hospital room to thwart them…

    • Myiq2xu™ says:


      Fast forward to 2007 and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ testimony before Congress. Not the time he couldn’t remember jack shit about the firings of the U. S. Attorneys, but before that when he was questioned about the Terrorist Surveillance Program. Of course he didn’t call it that, in fact he wouldn’t even admit it had a name.

      When the TSP was first disclosed by the NY Times, it was supposedly only a narrowly defined program to eavesdrop on communications between suspected terrorists. The Bush administration initially claimed the NYT’s was committing treason by revealing the mere existence of the program. Wow! What a shocker! I guess nobody ever thought we might try to intercept communications between suspected terrorists! Why, they were probably just blabbing away over the phone about their nefarious plans until the NYT’s let the cat out of the bag.

      Then former Deputy AG James Comey told Congress about a super-duper-top secret surveillance program that had been started by the Bush Administration after 9/11 (except it turns out they started it before that fateful day) He also related that in March 2004 he was asked to endorse the program while he was the Acting Attorney General during a period in which AG John Ashcroft was hospitalized. He refused to make the endorsement, but then learned that then White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales and White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card were headed to Ashcroft’s hospital room in what has been called the “Enzo the Baker” incident. Comey went to the hospital and with the assistance of FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III was able to intercept and stop Gonzales and Card.

      During his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Gonzales at first tried to claim he was trying to get Ashcroft to re-approve the TSP on the night of the “Enzo the Baker” incident. Then the administration tried claiming he was there at the hospital in regards to data mining, or “other intelligence activities.”

      Whatever they were doing is so secret they won’t even call it by name, let alone describe what it is or was. And it was so outrageously controversial that it almost caused mass resignations in the Department of Justice, including Comey and Mueller. Despite what the administration claimed, it wasn’t just “data-mining” either.

      Data mining had already been disclosed years earlier, but somehow it again became secret (or was secret until it was leaked anonymously to cover Gonzales ass.) The concept had been around since the Reagan years. What other method of spying or surveillance could they possibly be using that none dare speak its name?

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        Comey used to have a reputation for integrity.

        • foxyladi14 says:

          gone now

        • Propertius says:

          It was certainly an odd press conference. As far as I can tell, he laid out point-by-point every single element necessary to convict Clinton for violating the statutes (which to my layman’s eye don’t always require the element of intent in order to convict – specifically 18 U.S. Code § 793(f) – I’d really like to know what you think about that), and then said no charges will be filed. It’s almost as though he was ordered to give a press conference to exonerate her but did everything he could to sabotage it short of shouting out that she was “guilty as sin but free as a bird” as Bill Ayers described himself after his own acquittal.

          Maybe that indicates a indicates a lack of integrity…or maybe it was all he could do given that he wouldn’t be allowed to pursue the investigation further.

  10. Somebody says:

    In my opinion the fate of our country was sealed yesterday, we are a banana republic. We all sort of knew there were different sets of rules for the ruling class, witness the “perfectly legal” insider trading most of Congress participates in. It’s legal for them because they exempt themselves from the laws that we peons must obey. We’ve all known forever if you have enough money you can beat just about any charge. We’ve also known forever if you know the right people you will most likely avoid charges altogether. However, every once in a while someone that should avoid charges doesn’t. Which for me gave me the impression that there were some “good guys” out there in our government…..there were some honest ones, some white hats. Comey was supposed to be one of those white hatted good guys, apparently not.

    I never thought Hillary was going to be indicted because she is who she is, but I expected the lack of indictment to happen at the DOJ level. What Comey did yesterday with his presentation was one big giant fuck you to the nation. The optics of what he said and then Hillary smiling and boarding AF1 were terrible, it was an additional fuck you to the plebs.

    If Comey had kept his mouth shut and simply said we’ve closed the investigation and now it’s up to DOJ, fine. If Comey had said we went reconstructed the hard drive and Hillary’s story squares, fine. There are a myriad of ways Comey could have handled his statement yesterday, but to come out the way he did and lay out the facts and the case, then basically throw his hands up and say oh well. THAT was a fuck you to all of us. Then to add in this isn’t to say in the future someone in the same position wouldn’t face prosecution…….really?? Another fuck you to the nation. Then Hillary and Obama fly off on OUR FUCKING JET all smiles……another fuck you. Speaking of Obama, boy that timing sure worked out well pure coincidence though right??

    We cannot exist as a nation without the rule of law. We’ve been on life support for some time with a two tiered system, James Comey pulled the plug yesterday.

    • votermom says:

      It was a really odd thing for Comey to do. It makes me think he wanted to charge her but they have him by the balls somehow.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I agree the optics of that schmoozy campaigning together was poorly timed. Especially bad was the clip of Obama in his preacher voice whipping up the crowd. Just ewwww.

      • swanspirit says:

        I think it was deliberately timed. I think in their minds , Obama showing support for Hillary on the day she skates for gross negligence in handling classified information was excellent optics.
        In their narcissistic bubble, it never occurred to them that it appears to be exactly what it is ; which is flaunting their lawlessness to the world. I

    • Constance says:

      I think Comey did all he could reasonably do. The Democrat Powers That Be demanded no trial. Evidently they thought that meant a case would not be laid out against Hillary. Comey just stood up there and laid out the case against her and gave Dems no chance for rebuttal or to present their own case. Really, at this point Hillary should be demanding a trial for a chance to clear her name. But that won’t happen either. I don’t think Comey exposed our country as a farce he exposed the Democrats who currently run it as “unAmerican”. But we all knew Dems are Globalism agents and do not support American citizens.

    I think Hillary is going to suffer a devastating loss. I was talking to these lesbians. They call themselvesvdiesel dykes. They despise clinton. When you lose the flannel crowd in a steel town you are screwed. They like Donald. An accomplished aggressive obnoxious guy does not trifle them. They are smitten by Melania. My sister in law was over. She whispered that she was going to vote for Trump. Think how insane that is. It was only she and I in the house and she whispered. She is A VP for that red and white discount store. Successful 6 figure woman. Not what the media tells us a Trump supporter looks like. News is always trying to embarass people into #neverTrump. Its an epic failure. Western PA might no longer be industrial but the culture is infused with a blue collar sensibility. The dims decided to abandon white working class in favor of east coast liberals. . Trump is blunt. So are most people. I can only speak to what I actually see. When he does his Donald i hear people on the bus laughing about what he said now. Never have I heard so many engaged. The elitists went too far. The contempt they have for the avarage person is palpable. My mom says yinz she says I seen and knows of this place called Worshington. Tramp got knocked up at 15. Had six spawn. She is a great grandmother. She became a nurse. Of course the only indulgence she enjoys is Vegas. Tacky but my hero the condescension of the posturing elite screams of emptiness. That NRO guy who wrote poor white people should die. What kind of a monster could express such a thing. I think it has to about him. Its like homophobia To exert that much bile about another is pathological. Life is difficult to navigate as it is. Gross by that argument Hillary must reflect me. Nooooo.

      That’s how it was where I grew up – if you criticize the man in power, you whisper. So corrupt.

        I mentioned before that I visited 3 Communist countries in 1984 (Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria). That is how they were, they never spoke out about their country, most were afraid to speak with us. There were no smiles, no joy of life. I can’t believe that is what the left wants for us.

  13. Venus says:

    Hillary is the OJ Simpson of DC — she got off, but now it’s in the court of public opinion:

    Now it’s left to voters to settle whether the finding by FBI Director James Comey that no criminal charges are merited will put an end to the controversy.

    In focus groups in Illinois, Pennsylvania and Florida throughout this year, McClatchy found that the emails kept coming up among undecided voters. While most people were not familiar with the emails’ contents, they thought this much: They were stark evidence that Clinton was arrogant and untrustworthy.

    The question now: Does Comey’s exoneration counter that view, even though the FBI found that Clinton and her aides “were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information”? [snip]

    Comey, though, left skeptics with plenty of fodder: Notably, that 110 emails sent or received on Clinton’s private server contained classified material. He said seven of those were classified at one of the highest possible levels, Top Secret/Special Access Program.

    “There is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position . . . should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation,” Comey said.

    That sort of finding is likely to hurt the former secretary of state. “It plays right into the perception that Clinton is not trustworthy,” said Tobe Berkovitz, a former media consultant who’s now an associate professor of advertising at Boston University.

    That’s especially true with a segment of voters that David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center, calls the “haters” – the roughly 1 in 5 people who dislike both Clinton and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

    Forty-four percent of them were undecided in a recent Paleologos poll.

    Paleologos thinks that many of those “haters” were Republicans who were having trouble warming to Trump. As Republicans maintain a drumbeat of criticism of Clinton, pounding away at the idea that she can’t be trusted, Trump might benefit, he said.

    “People who dislike Trump aren’t as deeply rooted” in their opinion as those who dislike Clinton, Paleologos said.

    • votermom says:

      The Left loves to preen about their moral superiority.
      What Comey did yesterday ripped that away from her supporters. Some will ditch her in order to keep feeling good about themselves.
      It’s all about the feelz.

      Of course this means Hillary will try twice as hard to paint Trump as Hitler.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Public opinion crucified Casey Anthony too after she got off. May Hillary rue the day she got off.😉 I think Comey could have made her a sympathetic figure had he recommended punishment to the fullest extent of the law.

It is the old “If I’m shit so are you”. I think a lot of people are still processing this as it is really much worse than everyone suspected.

      • leslie says:

        I used to think the rumors and innuendos about murder and the Clintons were fiction. Perhaps they are. But, if I were Comey, I wouldn’t want to push my luck by saying any more (than he did). And, what he did say was damning. All those Clinton spinners and promoters are twisting and turning and using whatever they can to ignore the charges Comey laid at Hillary’s feet as they jump on Trump’s current “Saddam was good at ridding his country of terrorists” meme instead of addressing what Comey actually did say.
        I shook my head listening to the spinners on the morning news in Chicago today. They won’t acknowledge anything that Comey said – except that no “reasonable” prosecutor would indict HRC despite her lies and obfuscations and attempts to destroy any evidence that could “compromise” her. What they completely skip is that Comey said “No reasonable person” in Hillary’s position would have done what she did.

  19. Dora says:

    I received this in an e-mail and don’t know how to pass it on, other than to do a cut and paste.

    What did Presidents Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common?

    This is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around. I didn’t know of this until it was pointed out to me.

    Back during the great depression, Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work.

    Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after WWII to create jobs for Returning veterans.

    In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans. The program was called Operation Wetback. It was done so WWII and Korean War veterans would have a better chance at jobs. It took two years, but they deported them!

    Now, if they could deport the illegal aliens back then, they could surely do it today. If you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation Wetback into your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself.

    Why, you might ask, can’t they do this today? Actually the answer is quite simple. Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower were men of honor, not untrustworthy politicians looking for votes!

    Reminder: Don’t forget to pay your taxes – 12 to 20 million illegal aliens – are depending on it.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      The sjw/prog take on those programs is that they were racist, cruel and evil, and that many US citizens and legal residents were deported too.

      Unlike the men we honored the day before, on July 4th, who pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to defend liberty and the rule of law, FBI Director Comey was not willing to put anything on the line. He wanted us to know Hillary was guilty as hell. But he was not willing to pit the FBI against Obama’s DOJ, so he let the guilty walk free without even at attempt at insisting she be charged.

        I don’t think anyone could ever seriously consider HRC as a victim under any circumstance.
