By finding no grounds for bringing criminal charges against Hillary Clinton over her private use of email, the FBI investigation has shattered the Republican Party’s email conspiracy theory.
Video of Comey:
FBI Director James Comey said during a press conference:
Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.
In looking back at our investigations into the mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts.
Thus, another Republican conspiracy to get Hillary Clinton has landed with a thud. Since the Republicans began pushing the email scandal more than a year ago, Clinton has consistently stated that she did nothing wrong and that she did not break the law. The FBI investigation backs up her claims.
In less than two weeks Republicans have seen both their Benghazi and email conspiracies die. The Republican Party is heading into their convention in a few weeks with Donald Trump at the helm of a sinking ship, and nothing to run against Hillary Clinton on.
The GOP put all of their eggs into two conspiracy baskets, and now Republicans are shattered by the news that their last best hope of beating Hillary Clinton was crushed to dust when subjected to investigative scrutiny.
Between Trump tweeting of neo-Nazi images and their conspiracies evaporating into thin air, the Republican Party is having a horrible few weeks. The email scandal has been blown to bits. With the FBI recommending no charges, the DOJ’s decision not to charge Clinton will be nothing more than a formality.
The Republican email fantasy has been dashed, and all they have left is the reality of Donald Trump as their presidential nominee.
