Hillary off the Hook? Not Necessarily.

No one should be surprised that the FBI recommended not indicting Hillary Clinton.  After all, she is running for President and she is a Clinton.  She is also the former Secretary of State under the Obama administration.  The same administration that the FBI, being part of the Executive branch, reports to.  So it comes as no surprise that everyone is trying to sweep this under the rug.  But that doesn’t mean these things are truly behind Mrs. Clinton.  It is now up to the American public.  The question is, will we hold her accountable?

Let’s look at some of the facts in this investigation that we learned from FBI Director Comey.

Hillary told us over and over that she never sent or received any emails marked as classified.  She did.

Hillary testified to Congress that she turned over all work related emails.  She didn’t.

Hillary and Obama stated that national security was never at risk.  It was and in fact very likely our enemies hacked into Hillary’s emails.

These are all things that could be used to bring charges against her, but that didn’t happen.  These acts, although against the law, bring up many more questions beyond the debate as to whether she should be charged with a crime.  Questions like, is the same woman who would rather put American intelligence, and American intelligence officers lives at risk simply for her convenience, fit to be the President of the United States?   Or, is the woman who isn’t smart enough to realize that she was putting American intelligence and lives at risk, smart enough to be the President of the United States?  Not to mention, this is the same woman who was Secretary of State during the Benghazi attack when our government watched as Americans got overrun and killed, but that’s a topic for another day.  I just can’t fathom putting this woman in the White House.  The American people have no control over the FBI.  But we do determine the next election.
