In the case of the Clintons, did justice too fast or too slow? Where did the job of the DOJ get confused with the FBI? How much infighting within each department over the investigations? There is the e-mail mess: The Clinton Foundation; and reopening of the original e-mail case, brought about from another case. Than we have other investigations like the IRS and Louis Learner and normal investigations like terrorism.
The FBI is supposed to investigate. The DOJ is the one to call for grand juries, and prosecute or call for a special prosecutor. Loretta Lynch screwed this up royally by not calling for the jury and meeting with Bill Clinton. Director Comey steps in to cover Lynch’s backside.
Now when presenting the e-mail case laid out a case for indictment but didn’t indict. It was as if Hillary came up a couple of points short. Now, everything would become political if it hadn’t already. Hillary then claimed Comey gave her a free pass, which he didn’t.
Starting with a meeting before congress, and coming to a point where lost or destroyed e-mails could have been found, the investigation is in question. As a non-lawyer, what information did they have that they didn’t peruse? Were the congressional hearings that had already been given off limits? How far can one go as to trace, to the recipient of the e=mails? How deep do you check staff? How many issues can be under one investigation?
Mow a lap top computer with 650,000 has been found. Is this the missing lap top? Does it have the 33,000 missing e-mails? Have the FBI resignations played a part?
Was Comey just keeping a promise to congress that he would notify congress if any major mews developed? Would waiting another week been better time to disclose the new information, three days before the election? Now do we rush the investigation to meet the deadline of the election? The fate of Hillary and Trump rides om this answer.
Hillary and the Democrats have brought this on themselves. The public did not use a private server, or Clinton Foundation. The new information could be matter of national security. The depth of the Clinton Foundation could be exposed. We now have WikiLeaks and operation Veritas. The FBI cays the hacks have not been proven to be Russian, could it be an inside mole.
The voters will be deciding the risk factor in this election. Can we trust someone if half the known information is true, before the release of the new information? No.
The trust factor should control. Trump is loud and blunt with a blank political record, creating his negatives.Tags: Donald Trump Hillary Clinton James Comey Loretta Lynch
