  1. There’s no justice in our Dept. of Justice. They should just change the name to what it now is, the Dept of Obstruction of Justice.


    “In September, agents on the foundation case asked to see the emails contained on nongovernment laptops that had been searched as part of the Clinton email case, but that request was rejected by prosecutors at the Eastern District of New York, in Brooklyn. Those emails were given to the FBI based on grants of partial immunity and limited-use agreements, meaning agents could only use them for the purpose of investigating possible mishandling of classified information.

    Some FBI agents were dissatisfied with that answer, and asked for permission to make a similar request to federal prosecutors in Manhattan, according to people familiar with the matter. [FBI Deputy Director Andrew] McCabe, these people said, told them no and added that they couldn’t “go prosecutor-shopping.”

    Not long after that discussion, FBI agents informed the bureau’s leaders about the Weiner laptop, prompting Mr. Comey’s disclosure to Congress and setting off the furor that promises to consume the final days of a tumultuous campaign.

    Let me unpack this. Readers are unlikely to know that the Eastern District of New York in Brooklyn is not just any United States attorney’s office. It is the office that was headed by Attorney General Loretta Lynch until President Obama elevated her to attorney general less than two years ago.

    It was in the EDNY that Ms. Lynch first came to national prominence in 1999, when she was appointed U.S. attorney by President Bill Clinton — the husband of the main subject of the FBI’s investigations with whom Lynch furtively met in the back of a plane parked on an Arizona tarmac days before the announcement that Mrs. Clinton would not be indicted. Obama reappointed Lynch as the EDNY’s U.S. attorney in 2010. She was thus in charge of staffing that office for nearly six years before coming to Main Justice in Washington. That means the EDNY is full of attorneys Lynch hired and supervised.

    When we learn that Clinton Foundation investigators are being denied access to patently relevant evidence by federal prosecutors in Brooklyn, those are the prosecutors — Loretta Lynch’s prosecutors — we are talking about.”

    It then goes on to detail all the steps Lynch took to ensure the investigation went nowhere.

  2. @ 8:08.
    an awful lot of words to say that man/woman marriage has been the belief and tradition of not 2000 years, but forever.
    No culture on earth, at no time in history has it been a tradition that a man can marry a man.
    If you approached the subject in Sodom, they would have been puzzled about it.

    What is a “post-evangelical”?

  3. I took Independent Study for government, so I have ignorance on some issues but why aren’t senior members of the House and Senate pointing out all these people who are not recusing themselves in the FBI investigations?

    Is no one in charge? Are there no adults?


  4. Pass the popcorn.

    I don’t think it’s Hillary, but I’d bet it’s one of her 3 closest, Mills, Huma, or Podesta.


    “Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier reports the latest news about the Clinton Foundation investigation from two sources inside the FBI. He reveals five important new pieces of information in these two short clips:

    1. The Clinton Foundation investigation is far more expansive than anybody has reported so far and has been going on for more than a year.

    2. The laptops of Clinton aides Cherryl Mills and Heather Samuelson have not been destroyed, and agents are currently combing through them. The investigation has interviewed several people twice, and plans to interview some for a third time.

    3. Agents have found emails believed to have originated on Hillary Clinton’s secret server on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. They say the emails are not duplicates and could potentially be classified in nature.

    4. Sources within the FBI have told him that an indictment is “likely” in the case of pay-for-play at the Clinton Foundation, “barring some obstruction in some way” from the Justice Department.

    5. FBI sources say with 99% accuracy that Hillary Clinton’s server has been hacked by at least five foreign intelligence agencies, and that information had been taken from it.”

    Now we’re getting somewhere. And the Dems in charge can only keep this stuff from coming out for so long. After the election for sure, but it will come, and so will more indictments.


  5. Although Fox later reported that there’s a distinct split in FBI with some saying there is not enough there for an investigation. Sheesh.

    And CNN was talking all night about black voter suppression in North Carolina.

    This election aftermath, no matter who wins, is going to be nasty.


  6. Guess that later report was from the WSJ. Sounds like there’s some disagreement within both the FBI and DOJ. Should be interesting to see how it all unfolds.

    Just a little tension in the nation these days …
