Always Wise to Implicate the President in Your Corruption


Drifting into national politics for a moment, Andrew McCarthy is worth a read, suggesting that the implication of President Obama in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal explains the government-wide cover-up:

Thanks to Friday’s FBI document dump — 189 more pages of reports from the Bureau’s year-long foray (“investigation” would not be the right word) into the Clinton e-mail scandal — we now know for certain what I predicted some eight months ago here at NRO: Any possibility of prosecuting Hillary Clinton was tanked by President Obama’s conflict of interest.

As I explained in February, when it emerged that the White House was refusing to disclose at least 22 communications Obama had exchanged with then-secretary Clinton over the latter’s private e-mail account, we knew that Obama had knowingly engaged in the same misconduct that was the focus of the Clinton probe: the reckless mishandling of classified information.

One can easily understand the urgency to seat Clinton in the Oval Office no matter how horrible a candidate she might prove — even to the point of a Weekend at Bernie’s campaign.  Any other candidate, even a Democrat, might find some cause to allow justice to follow its course.

That the only hope for stopping the plan — which is probably little more than a representation of so many other plans and calamities, known and as yet unknown — is a President Trump is depressing.  But that’s modern America.

    You know what’s more depressing than.a President Trump? Seeing a pile of corrupt, unethical people at every.level of government. From.the Justice Dept, F B I, and all other departments that are supposed to be working for the good of the public…Face it, if someone still thinks there is a sense of honor, culpability or integrity by anyone at the top they’re either naive or brain dead.
