A summertime one. Tongue


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

What he basically said was they couldn't find precedent for a prosecution on this evidence and a reasonable prosecutor wouldn't expect a conviction. He never said there was no evidence of a crime. On the contrary, I thought he laid out very well that a crime was committed (in so far as the statute includes gross negligence as an element ).

Two things really bugged me about Comey's position. The first is the idea that a series of actions that are, by their nature, rare events shouldn't be prosecuted because there is little precedent for such a prosecution. The second is the entity charged solely with investigating and fact gathering using the difficulty of obtaining a conviction as a factor in whether or not to recommend moving for an indictment. I thought that was pure bullshit and a disservice to the American public. That is not the job of the FBI. Let the prosecution make that call.

But, it is incorrect to say they found no evidence of criminal wrongdoing. They just felt there was low probability of a successful prosecution. It's not the same thing.

There was a lot said in that press briefing to attack her with the next 4 1/2 months but I doubt it will matter. With this out of the way, I think she's a near lock to win. Something can happen to change that but absent that "something", I think this is over.

We will see.

I'll have to look for it online later. I got up too late to see it live.

Here you go Mom

She should know if something she was discussing was sensitive or not. And if she doesn't understand something that simple, she shouldn't be president.

Hear, Hear!

Just so you know, that is not my words but a direct quote of the article. It's in quotes.


***Question; DO these article update different information as the day goes on because I quoted the first couple of lines of the article and now when I look at it it's different. More stuff added. That doesn't seem right.

Does anyone know if they do that?

You lost me. It's summer time and my alarm still goes off at 5:20 or so. The difference between this and winter is the sun is up and I don't freeze my balls off waiting for the car to warm up on the drive to the gym.
