Washington, D.C. — Hold the presses! An amazing piece of news! Just in time so President Barack Obama could take off on a campaign jaunt with Hillary Clinton Tuesday morning, the FBI announced that they were not going to charge Hillary over the E-mail server scandal. WOW! Who would have guessed?
Turned out they thought she was careless in her handling of top secret and classified information, but hey, she didn’t mean any harm by it — she just didn’t give a damn.
Her likely GOP opponent, Donald Trump, reacted to the announcement by saying the system was rigged and noted that General David Petraeus, former CIA director, got in trouble for far less,
Clinton did not rate high marks from the FBI investigation for her performance in the scandal. However, even though FBI head James Comey refused to launch criminal charges against her, he did mention that “there was evidence to support that conclusion that any reasonable person should have known that an unclassified server was no place for that information.”
Comey was making reference to the 7 chains of emails both sent and received by Clinton. Although Clinton denied that any classified information was sent on the server the FBI found that 110 emails in 52 chains contained classified information at the time they were sent; 8 chains contained top secret information at the time they were sent 36 chains contained secret info and another 8 chains contained secret info. The government agency did not seem concerned about the thousands of work related E-mails that were not returned to them and were deleted.

And so Hillary Clinton will continue her march toward being crowned the status quo’s nominee at the Democratic Convention.
As Brixit proved last week. It’s going to come down in November as to how fed up the American people are with the Status Quo.
