The FBI’s director, James Comey, has a reputation for being incorruptible. He wanted to indict Gen. David Petraeus on far fewer charges than his investigators have come up with on Hillary. Now his chief of staff has reportedly said that the bureau plans to seek
indictments of Hillary and her aides despite the politics of the case. One source told me, “the bureau doesn’t care about politics.” This case is seen as a national security matter.But there are various shades of corruption. It seems obvious that someone made Mr. Comey an offer he couldn’t refuse. He may, for example, have been presented with incontrovertible evidence that his career would come to an abrupt and permanent end if he were to recommend an indictment.
Maybe he did something a little bit indiscreet back when he was in college, something that he had forgotten about. But surprise! There were photos.
Or he could have broken some federal law at some point. God knows, we all have. I always assume that I’ve broken five or six laws every morning before I’ve even had my coffee. Laws that I know nothing about — but ignorance of the law is no excuse!
There are so many laws now; everyone breaks some of them all the time. That comes in handy for the feds — anyone can be prosecuted at any time if need be. It’s now a political decision who gets prosecuted and who doesn’t. You or I? Maybe. Hillary? Never.
That’s what it’s like to live without the rule of law.
But Mr. Comey also has a wife and five kids… Nice little family you got there, Jim — be a shame if anything happened to it.
Yep, there are a lot of forms that unrefusable offer could have taken.
