#5261: Surprise coefficient: 0.00...0

Hillary Clinton will not be indicted. You're surprised by this? Why? You silly goose! Powerful Democrats don't have to obey the law! Look at Teddy Kennedy, for crying out loud. If he'd been Teddy Lennady, plumber, he would have spent thirty years in prison for negligent homicide in the case of Mary Jo Kopechne...but because he was a Kennedy the police were very carefully uninterested in investigating his role in her death and the whole thing was ruled an "accident".

I predicted that Hillary Clinton would not face charges for this. I am saddened that I was right, and dismayed, but not surprised.

The thing is, though...if Hillary was "extremely careless in her handling of sensitive information" that alone is a felony. Intent is irrelevant. Nonetheless, "Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case," because A) the prosecutors in question are Democrats, and B) they like walking around with both kneecaps and/or walking around, period.

The problem here isn't just one of careless handling of sensitive information, but also of political corruption: Hillary used a private server to protect herself against Freedom of Information Act requests.

...but of course No One Cares, and those who do care don't matter. And anyone who tries to investigate things will either get killed or otherwise "convinced" not to.

The law exists for you, prole, not for Hillary.
The attorney general secretly canoodles with the husband of the subject of criminal investigation by her own department and the president, the enforcer of our laws, shrugs. The media, the challenger of the powerful, smirks. They rub our noses in their contempt for the law. And by doing so, demonstrate their contempt for us.
Denninger cites the time of death for Rule of Law in America.

"In a surprising statement which concluded moments ago,..." What's surprising about this? The presumptive Democrat nominee for President ain't gonna be indicted for anything.

Despite protestations to the contrary it's painfully obvious that Hillary Clinton is above the law.

Time for the FBI to change its motto. This announcement did not demonstrate fidelity, bravery, or integrity. More like fawning, boot-licking, and ingratiating.

John C. Wright is less optimistic than I. But sooner or later the chickens come home to roost. Today is not that day, but it will come.
