So true. MariaThinks Jul 2016 #1
You view it as a victory? TCJ70 Jul 2016 #2
Oh bullshit. He said explicitly no reasonable prosecutor would bring charges. Zynx Jul 2016 #3
You're not a lawyer and therefore don't understand the subtleties brooklynboy49 Jul 2016 #179
I'm sure you think you're very clever there, but you ignored a simple thing in your own argument. Zynx Jul 2016 #196
Did you miss the part where they scoured ALL OF AMERICAN HISTORY for a comparable prosecution BobbyDrake Jul 2016 #4
They don't care because they never actually cared about the facts. Zynx Jul 2016 #9
Agreed. Add this faux concern to the pile with all of the rest of it. nt BobbyDrake Jul 2016 #12
No, they presented Fox News spin as fact, and now they are working overtime emulatorloo Jul 2016 #27

I had no hopes for an indictment... TCJ70 Jul 2016 #19

LOL leftofcool Jul 2016 #132
But you clearly never broke a rule in your life, did you? randome Jul 2016 #31
Oh, I definitely have... TCJ70 Jul 2016 #34
And this didn't come anywhere close to being an actionable violation. So...case closed. randome Jul 2016 #37
Au contraire, HRC WAS PROVEN INNOCENT. :) Hortensis Jul 2016 #111
That's another way of look at it! randome Jul 2016 #119
where did you get that? She was proven negligent and careless. That is not to celebrate larkrake Jul 2016 #155
Will everyone who has never been careless and negligent please step forward? Arneoker Jul 2016 #159
that is why he did not criminalize larkrake Jul 2016 #161

You're SO welcome! n/t TCJ70 Jul 2016 #43
TCJ70 and others earn our thanks every day. Hortensis Jul 2016 #104
The problem for me is that Comey left the door wide open floppyboo Jul 2016 #41
He just said... Adrahil Jul 2016 #53
"No reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case." -- FBI Director Comey MADem Jul 2016 #82
Thanks for the actual quote +1. NT Adrahil Jul 2016 #83
Hortensis was first! But it does bear repeating, over and over again! MADem Jul 2016 #84
that wasn't the quote I was referring to. floppyboo Jul 2016 #96
Did you mean the FBI finding: "NO OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE?" Hortensis Jul 2016 #109
No, I meant this one: floppyboo Jul 2016 #114
People aren't indicted for "administrative sanctions," Hortensis Jul 2016 #115
I wasn't talking about indictment. I don't believe I mentioned it once. floppyboo Jul 2016 #117
This message was self-deleted by its author AgadorSparticus Jul 2016 #157
Innocence was not proven, neither was intent. It is a non issue that grows mistrust larkrake Jul 2016 #170
That dog isn't hunting. nt MADem Jul 2016 #128
No one is arguing that. We've all got eyes and ears. floppyboo Jul 2016 #97
Obama blew the roof off that rally today! nt Maru Kitteh Jul 2016 #153
Still praying to the fairy? nolawarlock Jul 2016 #92
Why indeed? nolawarlock Jul 2016 #90
If you haven't noticed by now, some in America have NorthCarolina Jul 2016 #171
I watched it too and that passage made me think of some one else who did just that Snowden brush Jul 2016 #20
You noticed that, too? 1StrongBlackMan Jul 2016 #36
Would that mean Comey supports Snowden??? Or that Snowden supporters are pro-Hillary? floppyboo Jul 2016 #44
NO ... those DUers wishing upon the HRC Indictment fairy were/are very supportive of Snowden. 1StrongBlackMan Jul 2016 #54
That is the part of this that disgusts me most. nolawarlock Jul 2016 #91
Yup, yup, and yup. The most morally bankrupt Hortensis Jul 2016 #112

"No reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case." -- FBI Director Comey MADem Jul 2016 #81
Absolutely its a victory... a victory for common sense and fairness. DCBob Jul 2016 #17
he did not say she isnt a criminal, he said it would not be easy to indict so far larkrake Jul 2016 #156
If there was a crime he would have recommended legal action. DCBob Jul 2016 #158
there are degrees of criminality. He can not prosecute without solid proof of intent larkrake Jul 2016 #163
I think she is completely innocent of anything resembling a crime. DCBob Jul 2016 #164
you are entitled to your opinion, and intent was never implied by Comey or me larkrake Jul 2016 #165
Intent is critical to making it a crime. DCBob Jul 2016 #167
that is just another mistake, less damaging than the previous mistakes larkrake Jul 2016 #168
I dont think it had anything to do with "secrecy". It was about convenience and control. DCBob Jul 2016 #169
control of what? larkrake Jul 2016 #172
Server and system. DCBob Jul 2016 #173
that is secrecy larkrake Jul 2016 #174
Not to me. Secrecy implies hiding something she shouldn't be hiding. DCBob Jul 2016 #176
then we have to agree to disagree, it is a habit over several years larkrake Jul 2016 #177

It's always a bad sign when you have to make stuff up to support an argument. lapucelle Jul 2016 #33
I didn't make anything up... TCJ70 Jul 2016 #121
Yes it is. The consequence was the investigation. ehrnst Jul 2016 #38
I agree -- she was treated differently obamanut2012 Jul 2016 #49

Are you making these criticisms in order to help Hillary become a better candidate per the rules? nolawarlock Jul 2016 #89
