It’s Not What You Know; It’s What You Can Prove
Hillary Clinton, presumed Democrat presidential nominee, is off the hook for her handling of emails on one or more private servers and Blackberry’s.
According to an official press release by FBI director, James B. Comey,
“As a result, although the Department of Justice makes final decisions on matters like this, we are expressing to Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case.”
I don’t think anyone residing on planet Earth thinks that Hillary Clinton will be charged with anything based on the FBI findings and Comey’s statement yesterday.
Courts Are Funny Things
I don’t believe anyone on planet Earth believed that notorious gangster Al Capone was a choirboy. He was arguably guilty of numerous murders and other crimes yet he was eventually sent to prison for income tax evasion, not murder.
Why, because it was what they could prove in court.
It’s not what you believe, or what you think you know that counts. It’s what you can prove beyond a reasonable doubt in court that counts.
Courts are funny that way.
The Woods Are Deep
Hillary Clinton is not out of the woods yet. There are still questions about the Clinton Foundation and other possible improprieties while she served as Secretary of State.
However, nothing can or will take place before the upcoming November elections. Will the FBI cutting her loose, or the Loretta Lynch-Bill Clinton Tarmac Summit carry any weight with independent voters? Only time will tell.
Some Final Thoughts
I have never voted absentee because events can happen right up to hours before the polls open.
I don’t want to be sitting there thinking if I had only known I might have voted differently.
I know there are people tied to a party and they would vote for Al Capon if he were in their party even knowing who he was and what he was capable of.
According to the FBI, Hillary Clinton was “extremely careless” in the handling of sensitive information.
Will that mean anything to voters in November or be forgotten and replaced by a new scandal? What’s your opinion?
