You know the old adage "when you point your finger at somebody you have 3 pointing back at you"...and as I've always expected, those screaming loudest on the left have the most to hide

So judicial watch sues and obtains Cliniton emails which were NOT reported including these juicy tidbits:

Judicial Watch’s new emails appear to show multiple Abedin email exchanges from an unsecured server. They also appear to show that Clinton’s then-scheduler, Lona Valmoro, forwarded Clinton’s daily Secretary of State schedule to top Clinton Foundation officials, along with a “number of favors” that were requested.

In a May 10, 2010 email between Abedin and Band, Abedin said she “hooked up” people from the Russian American Foundation with the “right people” at the State Department. The Russia-American Foundation was then staffed by Clinton political supporters, according to Judicial Watch.


and

According to Judicial watch, on Dec. 6, 2010, Clinton shared classified information with non-U.S. government employees Justin Cooper, an aide to former President Clinton, and Clinton Foundation Director Doug Band. The email allegedly shows Clinton instructing her aide to print the correspondence, which involved allegations of theft by Bangladeshi banker and Clinton Foundation donor Muhammad Yunus.

Yunus was accused of embezzling $100 million from the Grameen Bank, which he founded.

DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY

So to Sixgun's point, IF Mueller was serious...there'd be a lot more vestigatin' going on. They'll put on a big show and nothing will come of it.

What part of politics isn't a dog and pony show! They huff and puff for each other in front of the cameras and then make their shady deals behind closed doors. Everything about them is drama!

Personally, I don't want to give KG anymore press than she has already gained through her stupidity.

Exactly. And if that were to EVER happen it would signal the start of the REAL swamp draining. And I don't see that happening. For some reason this President seems to feel he still has to hold some loyalty to the GOP/Hillary/Etc.

If it ALL wasn't just a D&P show for the public, the POTUS would be MORE on the offensive, there would be HRC / Clinton Foundation / Obama-Holder-Rice accountability, and there would be major public transparency of all of it.

I'm hoping SOMEDAY the bulk of the Wiener computer get's "leaked" by the NYPD or whoever, (to wikileaks, not MSM). I mean ALL of it!

I believe there's a bigger reason than "banana republic" rhetoric that HRC was let off the hook. Likely some backroom bullshit deals, that will be waffled on, and the middle class eventually loses again. The Clinton's were deeply tied into the Russians. Typical for them to spin the (preemptive) accusations of what THEY are guilty of. The Clinton's have been famous for that tactic for 25years. This is nothing new.

I'm waiting for the "next" to-big-to-fail "bubble" to burst, and THEN we'll see if there's any true character (anywhere) in the "administration" to Make America Great Again.

Jobs and Accountability...the rest (climate change, really?) is just bullshit smoke/mirrors.

If Comey says the President violated the law and tried to interfere he wold have to explain why he did not report this to his superior as required. Writing a "memo to the file" will not satisfy that if the file stays in his office. Therefore he will say no such thing. IMO

Comey is going to pull the same stunt as when he held the press initial press conference concerning Clinton's emails:

Lay out the case, in detail, about all of the crimes she committed, and then state that it doesn't rise to a level that can be prosecuted.

A leopard doesn't change its spots, and Comey will still do his best to come out of this whole mess unscathed after making Comey look good. More of the same self serving crap he's been dishing up for almost a year. Comey was said to have wanted to avoid having his decisions affect the political process, and he's done nothing but affect the process since day one.

If I hear one more word in the media about Jim Comey's "integrity", I'll puke.

Likely, something along the lines of:

"I'd like to tell you all the facts, but it's classified, and I don't want to tarnish the continuing Russian Collusion investigation, and the culture of integrity of the good people (still) at the FBI".

But he'll dance all around insinuations of collusion all day.
He's an Obama stooge...he'll follow that script.

He won't be able to comment on that because it is an ongoing investigation, now in the hands of Bob Mueller.

The focus will pretty much be on his conversations with the president.
