Ryan: GOP will hold hearings on Clinton probe

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/286608-ryan-gop-will-hold-hearings-on-clinton-probe

Republicans will hold hearings to learn more about the FBI's decision to not recommend criminal charges for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Tuesday night.

"People have been convicted for far less," Ryan said during an interview with Megyn Kelly on Fox News's "The Kelly File," saying that he thought FBI director James Comey "was going to recommend prosecution" based on the FBI director's opening remarks in a press conference Tuesday.

Ryan said the FBI's decision not to recommend charges "underscores the belief that the Clintons live above the law."

Comey said that while there was evidence Clinton and her staff was "extremely careless" with classified information, "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring a case against her in relation to her use of a private email server while secretary of state.


Well, that was sooner than I thought it would be.

5. Oh goodie goodie. Another f'ing Republican House subcommittee.


I was afraid that with the termination of the Ben Ghazi chit-fest, I'd go into withdrawal...unable to get my daily fill of Republican asshat-ness. But now, I can relax.

Please, if there is a God of any kind in wherever place you think he should be...please God let these people lose in November.

6. You just can't make this stuff up!

This is even more stupid than what I was expecting from them as their next move! FFS, they'll do anything to avoid actually addressing the issues facing this country, or discussing why their pitiful excuse for a candidate Trump should be getting access to classified Intel!

"Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

Second verse same as the first, and the 867th...

12. Of course he will! Wasting money and not having to do his job is the GOP master plan!

 

If they didn't have witch hunts, they would lose their jobs for lack of any kind of rational policy making. All hat and no cattle.
