TIME TO MOVE ON AND FIND SOMETHING ELSE YOU HATE ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON
Hillary Clinton Photo: (Photo: CNN)
The FBI Director spoke before America today and advised that no criminal charges would be lodged against Hillary Clinton. While the FBI Director advised that things might have been done differently, he said there was no intent to commit a crime.
The FBI Director merely reiterated what Hillary Clinton has been saying the last year.
1. The separate server was a mistake.
2. If she had to do it over again, she wouldn’t.
Director James Comey rebuked Mrs. Clinton as being “extremely careless” in using a personal email address for sensitive communications. This was of course a mistake.
But I’d rather have a candidate who made such a mistake and can be aware of the consequences of such action in the future instead of a candidate who has no clue as to what he is talking about.
For Donald Trump to say the system was “rigged” is an insult to the FBI Director. Remember Trump said the system was “rigged” when he was even winning.
Trump also said that General David Petraeus was charged while Clinton was not. True but Petraeus was trying to impress his mistress by sharing international secrets (intent) while Clinton was trying to navigate the complexities of a system at the State Department that had no clear lines of demarcation until she left office. (Unintentional).
Mr. Comey said, that it was possible hostile foreign governments may have gained access to Mrs. Clinton’s personal account. There was no mention of the word probable which is more serious than possible if you ask me.
On an unrelated matter, that Egyptian airliner that crashed was found to have an engine fire shortly before it went into a tailspin. Trump said it was a terror attack. Wrong again. But I digress.
Meanwhile Paul Ryan, The Speaker of the House thumbed his nose at the FBI by saying the “charges were criminal”. How the hell would he know? Did he do the investigation?
The bottom line here is this. There will be a candidate who will have charges brought against them by the end of the year. But that last time I looked Hillary Clinton didn’t bilk money out of students for her university and always paid her bills.
You could scream all you want about the system being “rigged” and attack the FBI. If it makes you feel any better to attack an institution that fights all types of crime, go ahead. But it won’t change the fact that despite the hope of people who hate Hillary Clinton, there are no charges.
This was a mistake, not a lie. There is a difference. A lie is when a government says there’s weapons of mass destruction and there’s not.
Case closed.
Time to move on and talk about the intricacies of the issues that face us this election year.

BARLETTA COMMENTS ON FBI FINDINGS
Congressman Lou Barletta (Photo: LuLac archives)
Congressman Lou Barletta issued the following statement regarding FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that he would not recommend the prosecution of Hillary Clinton for her private email server:
“I believe Director Comey and his staff at the FBI are top professionals with dedication to thoroughness and the rule of law. I am perplexed, however, at the decision announced today. The director made clear that Hillary Clinton and her subordinates absolutely transmitted classified information over unsecure emails, in direct contradiction of Clinton’s claims, just as he stated that it was a crime to do so either knowingly or through gross negligence. He also indicated that it was certainly possible than hostile states or agents had gained access to Secretary Clinton’s private server without leaving tracks behind as evidence. At the same time, Director Comey intimated that any other person who was guilty of the same actions would be punished. What is clear is that Hillary Clinton believes herself to be above the law; and for today, she was right.”

A SHERIFFS STAR

Donald Trump’s campaign offered the opinion that the Star of David, lifted from a white supremacist website by The Trump campaign was really a Sheriffs star. Uh even Andy Taylor will tell you a Sheriffs star has 5 points. 
Maybe Trump should consider his tweets because he may not even carry Mayberry.

Selective prosecution. Sad day when one who really sacrificed for his country is ruined while one who repeatedly expressed disdain for those who wear the uniform is given a pass.

Sad day when a five star general has to share classified information to impress a woman who is not his wife.

Dave: Gen. Petraeus was a 4 star general. The last 5 star general was Omar Bradley. See military history is not your best subject.

Yonk: I never expected an indictment. But she has claimed she never sent or received classified emails from her private server. Covey said she did. 110 times. This is not a clean win for her by any stretch. My beef with her on this has always been this was a case of extremely poor judgment by her and her staff. It calls into question her decision-making ability. So, no indictment is no surprise. But a lot of what Covey said today was damning.

There is more smoke surrounding the Clintons than the total of Snoop Dog's parties. She will NOT evade MY decision in November.

How can you agree with the Petraus decision and ignore Hillary's complicity?

So now you have problem with infidelity? You don't give a **** when Bill Clinton abused his power, and abused women, while the doormat looked the other way... .

"Sad day when a five star general has to share classified information to impress a woman who is not his wife. "
What's your ****ing point? Did I justify Petraus? What is wrong is wrong, you seem to have lost your right and wrong barometer. Why is the argument, well this one did it duh so it is okay if my person does it...
But using your nonsensical response. The FBI and the Justice Department recommended bring charges. Petraeus resigned in disgrace, and settled for a plea deal.
Sadly, he was given a slap on the wrist probationary sentence and a large fine, but no time, nor was he reduced in rank. He should have been stripped of his stars and lost his retirement.
What is it with you these days. Justifying actions of one by comparing to another. Both were wrong. Both were disgraceful abuses of power, or just plain disgraceful demonstrations of stupidity. Neither of them was correct, and neither of them deserve a pass.
You no longer display any consistency of thought.
Hilary was not cleared. It was deemed not worthy to prosecute. If a new AG gets in office, much like with Kathy Kane, as long as the statute of limitation does not run out, someone else with integrity may choose to prosecute.

Thanks for the catch. Yep Bradley was the last one. As a matter of fact, he was only one of nine who held that rank.

Dave,
I am not sure of your point on this. Sec Clinton was wrong, careless, stupid, deceitful, incompetent, corrupt or some combination.
This goes beyond the risk of classified materials, which she definitely put information and systems at risk.
This is about the failure to maintain controls over classified materials. Also, she potentially may have caused entry points to gain access to other networks. Whether that happened or not is irrelevant to maintaining security. The FBI director's comments showed a definite pattern of lax security. What other breaches may have existed under her tenure?
A private, civilian server for Sec of State level communications was careless and sloppy and unto itself should have given cause for concern.
Most importantly, is the Nixonian level pattern of paranoia with Sec Clinton. Dave you are a political history buff, can you not see this?
The deletion of emails is reminiscent of Nixon's transcripts of the tapes, and the missing minutes of audio. He tried to deem what was government property, what was important and what was relevant. While the erased minutes were not recovered, some of the deleted emails were, and they were not personal as was claimed.
If we think on it, we can see many parallels between Sec Clinton and President Nixon. From their rises to political power, to the rejection for president, to their comebacks. However, the most common themes they share are and inner ugliness that their supporters deny(ied), not being well liked and paranoia.
Nixon was brought down not only because of his actions, but because reasonable people from his own party convinced him to step aside.
Sadly, the reasonable people of the democratic party today are ignoring history as well as overwhelming evidence that history is repeating itself.
Nixon haters will almost always admit he had positives, especially in the realm of environmental protections and foreign policy, well if we forget that little skirmish in SE Asia.
The Democratic party had given her an the nomination by clearing the path. For all of the political speak, it is obvious VP Biden was "encouraged" not to run by the President.
Given what we have experienced when one of such extreme paranoia has held the most powerful office in the land, do we really need it again.
Sadly, the only thing, currently, standing between this Sec Clinton and the oval office, is a reality star blowhard, with his own laundry list of problems.
It would be nice, if before the convention, the server scandal becomes such a burden that the party steps in, as was done with Nixon, convinces her to step aside, and the VP takes the nomination.
I also have this bridge in Brooklyn for sale if anyone who thinks this will happen is interested.

True. Imagine if the GOP rank and file chose Walker, Kasich (who I might have voted for, just like I might have voted for McCain if not for Palin) or even Romney. Each has moral flaws. It's like trying to pick between Clemenza and Tessio.But the rank and file had a reaction instead of playing the smart game.

I think that if the indictment came down, all the crazies on FB would go wild for ten minutes. Then realize that Biden would steamroll Trump.
Remember Reagan's "There you go again?" to Carter.
All Biden would have to say to Trump would be, "C'mon man!!!"

Kanye West maybe? I'll ask one of the K sisters when I see them at Abe's.

I dunno there Stanley. Andy Taylor and Frank Jagodinski always had the 5 point star badge and 'dhat was good enough for me.
I think I got a Google machine for Christmas one year but I can't find the extension cord to plug it in.

Here is what I heard FBI Director Comey say regarding Hillary Clinton and this email server episode:

He concluded Hillary was “extremely careless” in handling our nation’s secrets.
He admitted no reasonable person could have believed putting these emails on a private server was at all appropriate or acceptable.
He admitted 110 emails on the server were classified at the time they were sent — showing Hillary not only lied, but knowingly endangered national security as secretary of state.
He admitted Hillary deleted work-related emails before turning them over to the State Department, despite her claims otherwise.
And, most shocking, Mr. Comey even admitted it’s likely foreign governments hacked her emails — and our adversaries could know critical secrets about the U.S. government because of Hillary’s actions.
Here’s a simple LuLac summation:
Hillary Clinton was extremely careless with our not just classified, but highly classified, information — why not just term this gross negligence? I can tell you, if I were a member of our Armed Services who’s been punished for misuse or mishandling of classified information, I would be filing an appeal. See, in the military, at a minimum, you’ll lose your security clearance; maximum, you’ll face courts-martial punishment.
