FBI Director James Comey on Hillary Clinton Emails: “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case”

This was always a ridiculous, overblown non-“scandal”, mostly ginned up by Republicans and kept alive by the corporate media — even as they spend far less time and energy on Donald Trump’s massive corruption and sleaze over many years. Of course, Trump and other right wingers will never accept this finding, as they see phony “scandals” as their main (only?) hope of defeating Hillary Clinton. Thus, we had the utter waste of time, money and energy that constituted the “Benghazi” non-“scandal.” We also had years of right-wing efforts to smear Bill Clinton (drug running! Vince Foster! rape! murder! god knows what else!) and Hillary Clinton. It really never ends, and it won’t end with this conclusion of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s “damn emails.” Still, it’s good to see, and for any fair-minded, reasonable voters, perhaps this will help ameliorate or even put to rest the ridiculous notion that Hillary Clinton is somehow not trustworthy, a dedicated public servant, blah blah blah. We’ll see…

P.S. It’s also important to note that James Comey is “a registered Republican who donated to U.S. Senator John McCain’s campaign in the 2008 presidential election and to Governor Mitt Romney’s campaign in the 2012 presidential election.” He also served as United States Deputy Attorney General in President George W. Bush’s administration. So clearly, this guy’s no friend of the Clintons or the Democrats…
