Opinion: Smelling a rat, seeing a snake?
And now it gets hyper-interesting. We assume you know that the FBI decided last week that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) was “extremely careless” in the way she handled classified e-mails on a private server (Oopsie!), but, hey, there isn’t enough for a recommendation to the Department of Justice for criminal charges to be brought against the former secretary of state. “As the Secretary has long said, it was a mistake to use her personal e-mail and she would not do it again. We are glad that this matter is now resolved,” said FBI Director James Comey. Is it? Not if you ask presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, the name-calling flamethrower. He immediately opined on social media that the “system is rigged” and was calling for a special prosecutor. One wag on Twitter noted that as the announcement was being made, Clinton and President Barack Obama were together on the campaign trail, and that if anyone believed that was a coincidence, one would be a fool. Perhaps. We’re trying to make sense of the decision. Brought down to our level, which is way, way down the ladder, does that mean if we’re pulled over for doing 45 mph in a 30 mph zone, we simply tell the constable, “I apologize, officer, but I didn’t intend to speed.” The announcement came the day after we celebrated independence from tyrannical elites. We’re not sure that fully is the case. Of course, as we’ve written before, if anyone thought Clinton would get more than a hand slap, we have some south-central Florida real estate for you. If interested, you really should have an affinity for Burmese pythons.
