Comments: O.J. Rides Again

I think the three key words are "rumor has it."

There is zero separation betwixt us that Sec. Clinton deserves to be indicted. My problem is a Facebook feed in which every third post is some unknown right wing site that assures "HLLARY IS TOAST" NOW!" "NEW INFORMATION -- IT's OVER!!"

Um guys, have you noticed the last thirty have not changed anything? We have a DOJ somewhere between totally corrupt and no appetite and a fractured FBI that knows there is no support up top.

I think she skates. Boy do I ever hope I am wrong. I do not take lightly the end of real rule-of-law. But I think she skates.

The word objective is right in the name of the life philosophy I claim to adhere to so its a pretty important concept to me.

I have multiple friends on both sides of the aisle and what I here is this:

Friend A (paraphrasing): They have been chasing the Clintons for 30 years but they never get convicted and so really they must be fine people who are just being unjustly harassed because they are Democrats.

Friend B (paraphrasing) : They have been chasing the Clintons for 30 years but they never get convicted so the system must be rigged because they are rich and powerful, they can get away with anything. If us little people behaved like that, we would be in jail.

Funny how all the Friend A people are Liberals and all the Friend B people are conservatives.

Will someone PLEASE advise on how to form an objective opinion on these matters because I have no idea.

Of course you know what is objectively right. And so does jk. He said, "She skates" not "She's innocent."

Your friend A people are lying to themselves to protect something. Or if not to themselves, then to you, but still to protect something. The more interesting question you should be asking is, what are the Clinton apologists protecting?

And I suggest objective supporting evidence to B is to compare how less connected people were treated for the same offenses. Officers have lost their commissions for inadvertently doing what Sec. Clinton has done with mens rea.

General David Petraeus and Scooter Libbey must be wishing they had sent a million to the Clinton Foundation.

Nope! Director Comey has spoken -- she is innocent of all charges, ever (that issue in the fourth grade with the fountain pen and her rival's dress? Exonerated!)

I really do not know what to say.

You could say the same thing my dear ol' dad said.

"Drain the swamp."

@JK

Their egos. I have the same issue writ large: my favorite is the one who's been telling me the GOP is done as a party... for, well, as long as we've been FB friends. Years. Long before DJT won a single primary. He's an entrepreneur (well, not really successful one) who's a dedicated Sanders guy. That HAS to be ego. He's also a bit of an arrogant prat, so the ego big holds.

There are some "type A" who are just long-time Dems who will listen to the whisper campaign about the nasty, poopy-headed GOP (even for a guy like Romney).

JK:

No, she skates. The weasiling used was there was no "intent" to cause harm or break the law. Charming. I can just see now that 'hate' speech will invariably be put in the intent column. The insanity has begun... perhaps even, as PowerLine postulates if Trump wins (he's won OH, WI and FL).
