The bottom line is that Hillary Clinton has avoided criminal charges. Like it or not, Hillary’s path toward the White House is clear and open. The debate as to whether the FBI’s decision not to indict Hillary Clinton was fair or compromised, will be a topic of much debate…but the bottom line, according to Cenk Uygur, is the email scandal is now over.
Here is how Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down.
“Hillary Clinton got her wish that the FBI would not recommend criminal charges for her homebrew email setup. Now she will suffer the consequences.
On Tuesday, FBI Director James Comey announced that 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.” He cited “a number of factors” in reaching this decision, beyond the possibly criminal acts.
So Hillary skates? Not hardly. In fact, this could be the worst outcome possible.
Had a recommendation for indictment come down, it would not have slowed Hillary’s march to the nomination. Democrats have demonstrated they will support her no matter what. And had actual charges been filed, the process is so slow that she would probably not have faced significant court proceedings before the election. If the topic ever arose on the campaign trail, she would have said it was an ongoing process in the hands of her attorneys and declined to comment.”
