Comey’s Cowardice

Home again, home again and glad to be back.  Picked a lot of fruit today, two kinds of cherries and lots and lots of red  currents, saw three deer who looked at me  and hesitated before they crossed the road, like pedestrians trying to gauge  traffic before running  across the street, and in many ways it was quite a pleasant  visit to the cottage, but I’m glad to be home.
More on the Comey speech, in which he  declined to prosecute but, in every other sense, made clear that he thinks Hillary is a liar.
Here’s one key bit, which a lot of people are talking about:

To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions, but that’s not what we’re deciding now.

“That’s not what we’re deciding now,” of course, raises the question of “what are they deciding now?”

They are deciding, apparently, that Hillary Clinton is above the law.  They are deciding that the law is only for little people.  They are deciding to take whatever deal Bill Clinton offered Loretta Lynch in their private meeting on the plane last week.  They are deciding that they don’t  want to wind  up like John Ashe, dead on a bench with a barbell pressed down on their neck.  They are deciding that  they’ll totally ignore the rule of law if told  by somebody high  enough up.  They are deciding that, since  Bernie Sanders might go ahead  and  appoint somebody else, they’ll go with job security.

It is absolutely shameful.  If I had not already  decided to never vote  for Hillary Clinton, this would have done it.
