The FBI just gave Hillary Clinton the biggest gift in the history of presidential politics.  Two days before the election the FBI has announced that they are ending their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.  After reviewing the emails that were found on electronic devices owned by Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner, FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress telling them that “we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”  That means that there will be no indictment, and the path is now clear for Hillary Clinton to become the next president of the United States on Tuesday unless an election miracle happens.

 

These days it is unusual for a news story to hit me on a deeply emotional level, but this one sure did.  When the FBI originally announced that they were renewing this investigation, it gave me a glimmer of hope that there may be a little bit of integrity left in our legal system.

But after today’s announcement I have lost all faith in our deeply corrupt system of justice.  America has become a lawless nation, and the rule of law is completely dead in this country.

Yes, it is true that those of us in the general public do not know what was contained in those emails, and Director Comey says that nothing significant was found in them

In a letter to lawmakers, Comey said the FBI is standing by its original findings, made in July, that Clinton should not be prosecuted for her handling of classified information over email as secretary of State.

“The FBI investigative team has been working around the clock to process and review a large volume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation,” Comey said in the letter. “During that process we reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of State,” Comey wrote. “Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”

But of course the truth is that the FBI already had more than enough to go after Clinton based on what they discovered the first time around.

In the world of national security, if you transmit a single classified document via a channel that is unsecured, you will lose your security clearance in a heartbeat and it is quite likely that you will be prosecuted and sent to prison for mishandling classified information.

In fact, two different members of the U.S. military were recently convicted for doing precisely that

Just last month, Bryan Nishimura, a California Naval reservist, was sentenced to two years’ probation and a $7,500 fine after he pleaded guilty to removing classified material and downloading it to a personal electronic device. The FBI found no evidence he planned to distribute the material.

Last year, Bronze Star recipient and combat veteran Chief Petty Officer Lyle White pleaded guilty to storing classified documents on a nonsecure hard drive in Virginia. He received a suspended 60-day sentence and a suspended $10,000 fine in return for the plea. White said the information was for training purposes to study and that he had no intent to communicate with anyone.

Neither of those individuals intended to mishandle classified information, and they certainly never intended to share it.

But they were both convicted anyway.

So what makes Hillary Clinton any different?

During the initial investigation, the FBI found 113 emails that contained classified information

Clinton had repeatedly said she did not have any classified emails on her server, but the results of the FBI investigation show that claim was incorrect.

Of the tens of thousands of emails investigators reviewed, 113 contained classified information, and three of those had classification markers. FBI Director James Comey has said Clinton should have known that some of the 113 were classified, but others she might have understandably missed.

And I would be willing to bet that the FBI found some more classified emails that they had not seen previously among the 650,000 or so that they reviewed for this renewed investigation.

But it doesn’t matter now.  Hillary Clinton is free as a bird even though she mishandled 113 classified emails, and it looks like she is going to become the next president of the United States on Tuesday.

As a law student and then later as an attorney working in Washington D.C., I got to see just how deeply corrupt our legal system has become.

But after today, I don’t see how any American can ever have faith in the rule of law again.

If the law does not apply equally to all persons at all times and in all circumstances, we might as well not even have a legal system.

At this point, there is only one way that some sort of justice can be achieved in this case.  And that is if the American people go to the polls on Tuesday and vote to keep her out of the White House.

It won’t be perfect justice of course, but at least it would keep Hillary Clinton from getting what she wants more than anything else in life.

The choice before the American people is very simple.  Hillary Clinton is the most corrupt politician to ever run for the presidency, and the extremely long laundry list of Clinton scandals and crimes has been well documented over the past three decades.

The voters know exactly what they are getting with her.  And if they choose her anyway despite all of the things that have been revealed, that means that America is willingly choosing lawlessness.

To most conservatives, this election is all about Trump, but I believe that it is far more about Hillary Clinton.

I am convinced that we are at a pivotal moment in American history, and if the American people willingly choose Hillary Clinton it will be an indication that there is zero hope for the future of this nation.

So let us pray for an election miracle, because right now Donald Trump is behind in most national polls and time is running out.

  • MIchael in Chicago

    It is not possible to review all 600,000+ emails in two weeks.

  • Pray, pray for the Lord to take them in their own devices/craftiness; to expose their sin to the world, for all to see.

    I have faith in my God to do these things. Nothing is too hard for Him.

  • rentslave

    I’ve been telling people for months that Comey don’t play dat game of honesty.With this timing,I have proof beyond all doubt.

  • Bill

    Only one answer, Comey has been blackmailed or worse.

  • Bill

    They didn’t review them all. They did find enough to indite, but Comey fears the Obama wrath so he had no choice but say what he did.

  • Syrin

    And here is the problem. Pacifism. Sit back and hope for divine intervention. Pray that God does all the hard work for you. Instead, we ALL need to act and pray for divine guidance. How many times has God directly intervened? Seems like in the Bible God directs people to act but rarely comes down and smites Goliath in person.

  • Syrin

    You just now lost faith? I have been saying for over a DECADE we are a lawless nation. Martha Stewart went to jail for doing the same thing that made Pelosi a multi-millionaire. Congress passes bills they don’t read and exempt themselves from the law. The EPA creates the worst man mad fresh water disaster in the history of the world, and no one even gets a reprimand. How many more examples do you need? What took you so long? Repeat this statement EVERY WHERE YOU GO. WE ARE A LAWLESS NATION !!

  • Praying is acting, Syrin. It’s not pacifism.

    There’s multiple commands, throughout the New Testament, which call for Christians to participate in the act of prayer.

    God doesn’t mind working hard: He loves receiving prayers from His children, which line up with His will (the act of prayer gives a Christian the power and ability to smite the “Goliaths”).

  • It’s confusing to those who pay attention

    Hillary is investigated for 4 years, at a cost of $7million – BY Republicans, and nothing is discovered Repeat this same pattern for all the other scandals, in the end, she is cleared of wrong doing….

    Then… you have Trump….countless actual, no questions left, 100% true, examples of trump – the failured man. And you rally around him, and IGNORE his deep human character flaws.

  • TMZ2

    Hillary is corrupt to the core. And all Trump wants to do is rightly fix the system. The left is attacking Trump with lies. Most what that they blame him for they are the ones who do that junk. The Democrats are pretty racist and want to foment divisions in this country for political gain. The one with deep character flaws is Hillary. Trump isn’t pure as driven snow, but he isn’t some deranged person like Hillary.
    Hate to burst your bubble but the left is just no good. The right is just as bad and Libertarians aren’t much better. Trump is a big FU to the system run by the globalist new world order. He can’t do it all by himself so it is the people who are helping him. And further more he is just the start. So there will be more Trump’s coming as America will not go back to the days of Bush, McCain, Clinton and Obama.
    If he loses the movement is not over and instead it will be challenging Hillary every step as the people have had it,

  • Tassieo

    Intercession in the hands of the Christian is a very powerful tool. When Christians pray, God acts.

  • Amen!

  • TMZ2

    Since 1997, I began to notice thing were bad. By 2000, I felt like a civil war could come to America with all the divisions and hateful rhetoric each election cycle. By 2006, I began to see the republicans were just as bad a democrats. By 08, the incompetence of the right lead to Obama’s election. I feared for the country. By 2010, I felt that America was beyond repair. Now six years later I feel we could be nearly on the verge of civil unrest.

  • Ax2root

    Prayer is one action and doesn’t not negate others.

    God told Moses to QUIT PRAYING AND GET MOVING, when God had already told Moses what to do and instead Moses started praying again….probably out of fear.

  • Ax2root

    And when the Body of Christ ACTS

    in agreement with the Holy Spirit Then Gods will is DONE on earth as in heaven,

    The land of milk and honey was given to the Israelites BY GOD BEFORE they ever entered .

    HOWEVER….they needed to PHYSICALLY CROSS OVER and claim it!

  • Ax2root

    Definitely not possible according to FBI STANDARDS of law and order

  • Ax2root

    God works THROUGH His BODY.

    is how the New Covenant is set up.

    Angels don’t preach the gospel.

    Cornelius was SENT TO A HUMAN to do the work.

    God doesn’t take back the free will responsibility He gives to humans,

    So humans need to ACT in accordance with The Word of God BY The Holy Spirit.

    ” give to Caesers what is Caesers ”

    Christians in the USA have the responsibility to vote for our ” we the people” leadership

  • Lickylick

    So in a stadium full of people praying for their team to win just didn’t pray hard enough when their team loses? See how silly you people are?

  • Lickylick

    Your god has no body. Remember, he is a ghost and a spirit and died on the cross. No body.

  • Ax2root

    Nope .

    Wrong ” silly “assumption stated in ignorance

  • Ax2root

    Yawn .

    Let us know when you want to stop being ignorant

  • Syrin

    No, when it’s done as the only action it is pacifism. How did prayer help the Jews during the Holocaust? People have to ACT and pray for divine guidance. I see too many people hoping for a miracle when the lord helps those who help themselves.

  • Not at all, Syrin. That’s just not true. For instance, the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (ref. James 5:16).

    Offensive-minded prayer places one on the spiritual battlefield — where the war pitted against mankind is truly fought (ref. Ephesians 6:12).

  • You, yourself, are a tri-une being; consisting of (material) body, soul, and spirit.

    Our God might not be yours — but He’s your only hope for salvation.

  • Kent Harris

    You assume that God will act. That may or may not be the case. When a nation which has the Ten Commandments displayed prominently on the Supreme Court building but turns from Him who is our Creator by killing millions of babies and having an unholy marriage between same sexes cannot expect God to listen to us.

    He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination [to God]. Proverbs 28:9

  • Prizm

    God doesn’t lift a finger. All his people cry and lament over corrupt morals, homosexuality, etc, yet God does nothing to condemn these things or improve the situation.
    Christians exert a lot of mental anguish over this stuff, yet get no help from the big guy upstairs – the one they pray to and worship every single day. Christians are left to stress and grieve and have “fervent prayer” about these things on their own.

    My advice: If God is so concerned, let him sort it out. After all, doesn’t God place authorities in power? (Rom. 13:1). Whoever is voted in is God’s will anyway. No point complaining or stressing about it!

  • Thanks for your reply, but I do reject your view.

    I’ll stick with serving my God, and standing on the promises of His Word.

    Shalom.

  • Snake

    God has a “body”, just not an EARTHLY body!

  • Snake

    Actually it is your ignorance that is overwhelming! Just as with the kenyan usurper, HilLIAR-y is a proven liar and corrupt individual, what is also proven is that the government is just as corrupt and refuses to ACT on the evidence. Your claim that “nothing has been discovered” is proof that you are just as big a liar as your scumbag leaders!
