There’s an old adage: Be careful what you ask for.
Two days before election day Democrats got what they wanted — yet another ‘get out of jail free’ card for Hillary Clinton, courtesy of FBI Director James Comey. Mr. Comey, who appears hell-bent on self-destructing, announced on Sunday that his staff had, in little more than a week, thoroughly reviewed some six hundred and fifty thousand emails, some potentially classified, discovered on the laptop computer of the estranged husband of Mrs. Clinton’s top aide. Mr. Comey further announced that, based on his exhaustive review, he stands by his earlier decision, from July of this year, to release Mrs. Clinton, at least for now, from the threat of criminal prosecution.
Such a claim by Mr. Comey, under these circumstances, so lacks credibility as to be laughable. And therein lies the Democrats’ conundrum. Mr. Comey’s maneuver, clearly intended to push Hillary over the electoral hump, may actually be seen by voters as one clever maneuver too many, highlighting the corruption of the Clintons, the Democrat party and the liberal media (a.k.a. ‘mainstream’ media) who slavishly protect them.
This point will be lost on the zombie-wing of Democrat voters. But for other voters – Democrats, Republicans, Independents – who actually pay attention, and are still determining how they’ll vote tomorrow, Mr. Comey’s last minute stunt, most certainly orchestrated from within the Obama Administration’s bowels, may be instructive.
Covering up criminal behavior with such arrogance, disregarding the rule of law in such a cavalier manner … in naked pursuit of political ambition … sends a chilling message –- one people may take with them into the voting booth on election day.
