- FBI (Comey) “we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts;”
- It took the internet less than 24 hours to find a case.
A case last year, brought by the FBI, is pretty similar to that pesky little problem Hillary has over her 30,000 emails.
Nishimura pled to keep the government from stacking charges that could have incarcerated him for several years were he convicted. Smart move considering that “intent” doesn’t have anything to do with crimes of this nature as the link to the web article points out.
However, according to Comey’s statement of recommendation; the recommendation Loretta Lynch says she will accept, intent played at least some part in the FBI’s decision making process.
But, the part of his remarks I find most interesting is this:
It is also likely that there are other work-related e-mails that they did not produce to State and that we did not find elsewhere, and that are now gone because they deleted all e-mails they did not return to State, and the lawyers cleaned their devices in such a way as to preclude complete forensic recovery.
The word “they” is referring to Hillary’s lawyers. He is acknowledging that as Hillary’s lawyers word searched her email documents they scrubbed their devices to prevent recovery.
Timing is everything.
I’m sure it’s no more than coincidence that Comey went public just hours before Obama and Hillary campaigned together for the first time. Hm, yea – it would have to be coincidence because Comey said in his statement that no one knew what he was going to say prior to making the statement.
Otherwise, Comey would have lied in his remarks and we all know that lawyers don’t lie–and especially FBI lawyers; they certainly can’t lie. Why, that would be unethical.
