Media claim Comey ‘cleared’ Hillary Clinton; his words prove he didn’t

Nothing has been more outrageous in the 2016 election cycle than the distortion of truth by legacy TV and online networks and select newspapers. The latest claim Mrs. Clinton has been ‘cleared’ by the FBI is not true.

On Monday, media reported on a Nov. 6 letter from FBI director James Comey regarding additional investigations into what Comey said were “a large volume of emails.” Those emails were found on “a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation.”

Comey’s conclusion in his Nov. 6 letter about the new element in the ‘HillaryGate’ scandal is terse:

“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to [former] Secretary Clinton.”

Rather than clearing Clinton as media are claiming, that statement actually served to remind us that she is indeed guilty of being “extremely careless” in her “handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” You can’t talk about Comey’s latest letter without talking about his July letter because the July letter is the linchpin in his newest statement.

Comey didn’t charge Clinton. In some ways, this has benefited GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump who has long claimed what many Americans feel—that the “system is rigged.”

Comey’s actions prove Trump is right. The system is rigged in that laws applying to most Americans do not apply to a member of the political class like Mrs. Clinton. That standard upends every right we have as Americans.

In order to make things easy on impatient readers, let’s recap what Comey said in July when he delivered an indictment of this longtime politico, tried her in a one-man jury, and gave her an acquittal that by his own omission others would not receive. Comey’s own words are loaded, but when he referenced his July letter, this is what he intended to remind us about:

*Mrs. Clinton and her colleagues “were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

*Regarding “seven e-mail chains” on “matters that were classified at the Top Secret/Special Access Program level when they were sent and received”: ”There is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position, or in the position of those government employees with whom she was corresponding about these matters, should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation.”

*The FBI also “found information that was properly classified as Secret by the US Intelligence Community at the time it was discussed on e-mail.” In other words, the information wasn’t classified after the fact.

*The FBI believes “hostile actors gained access to the private commercial e-mail accounts of people” Clinton contacted regularly. “A large number of people” knew she was using “a personal e-mail domain” rather than a secured one, both inside the US and “in the territory of sophisticated adversaries.”

*Comey warned that he wasn’t saying that “in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences.”

It is likely that if Mrs. Clinton wasn’t running for president, she would face charges. Comey made a case for charging her, as a matter of fact, when he said this in the July letter [emphasis added]:

“Our investigation looked at whether there is evidence classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on that personal system, in violation of a federal statute making it a felony to mishandle classified information, either intentionally or in a grossly negligent way, or a second statute making it a misdemeanor to knowingly remove classified information from appropriate systems or storage facilities.”

Obviously, a junior prosecutor could win a case against Hillary Clinton based on the FBI findings. The Democrat candidate for president’s only intent for refusing to follow protocol on using a government server instead of “several different servers” and “numerous mobile devices” was to erect a barrier between government information and the American people she allegedly served.

Mrs. Clinton lied repeatedly, by the way, about using only one device for her emails. She lied repeatedly about not sending classified information on those devices.

Mrs. Clinton was so arrogant about her insulation from being held accountable by the rule of law she allegedly sent classified material to her personal maid for printing.

That media are falsely portraying Comey’s latest letter as a document “clearing” the scandal-laden Democrat nominee suggests you cannot trust this media to tell you the truth about her under any circumstances.

There is a way to sentence her, however. Only by rejecting her as president can justice be delivered by the American people. The political class will not sacrifice one of their own regardless of how many lives she jeopardized by her carelessness, her gross negligence, and her deception.

CNN mentioned this morning Mrs. Clinton isn’t talking about Comey’s latest letter. Of course she isn’t. She doesn’t want you to remember what he said in July. His conclusions still stand.

Please help share this article. Major search engines are openly advocating for Mrs. Clinton, and content is being curated by them to avoid damaging her candidacy. The only viable candidate for keeping a Clinton the 2nd out of the White House is Donald Trump.
