They know her crimes but do nothing to stop her

Who is scummier?

Republican James Comey, director of the FBI, knows Hillary Clinton is guilty as sin. Nevertheless, he refused to recommend indicting her.

Or Republican David A. French, a lawyer and National Review writer, who also knows she's guilty as sin but refuses to help the guy who stopped her.

French gained a little notoriety around Memorial Day when he allowed Bill Kristol to float his name as the Never Trump Party candidate. The Left mocked a book he and his wife wrote about staying true when a soldier is deployed overseas (he served in Iraq), and he promptly dropped out. But he is still taking shots at Trump and doing all he can to stop Trump from stopping Hillary.

Which makes French's columns on Hillary's latest crime - obstruction of justice -- so sad.

From French on September 2 in "Hillary Clinton Is Even More Dishonest than You Thought":
Americans cannot believe a single word that comes out of Hillary Clinton’s mouth. She does what she wants, says whatever she needs to escape the news cycle (or federal prosecution), and proceeds right on with her march to power. Even worse, she’s consistently done so with the willing and enthusiastic participation and cooperation of the vast majority of the progressive media. As a colleague noted, where’s the “Against Hillary” edition of an esteemed liberal publication? 
Given the stunning incompetence and mendacity of her GOP opponent, this person is likely the next POTUS. After prolonged exposure to her corruption (which isn’t tempered by any of her husband’s charm or political talent), Americans will either be exhausted by the drama or so thoroughly hardened to dishonesty and scandal that our politics will be debased for a generation. She is the living symbol of the corruption of our elite and the rotting of our politics. May her reign be mercifully brief.
Where's the lefty "Against Hillary" edition? It was called "Against Trump" and the lefty-in-conservative clothing National Review ran it.

From French on September 5 in "Even if You Believe the Left’s Excuses, Hillary Clinton Still Violated Criminal Law":
Hillary Clinton had classified information on her homebrew server. She sent it. She received it. She kept it. On this point, it doesn’t matter if she maintained that server for convenience or to evade FOIA. It doesn’t matter if records were wiped through a mistake or to evade a subpoena. Her behavior contains the elements of a federal crime, yet she is escaping prosecution entirely. It must feel good to be a Clinton.
Surely it is god to be a Clinton when you have wimps like French and Comey running interference for you.

Oh, Comey is much, much scummier. But French needs his nose rubbed in his amorality. By his own admission, he would rather have a criminal in the Oval Office than someone he doesn't personally like.

  1. "Republican James Comey, director of the FBI, knows Hillary Clinton is guilty as sin. Nevertheless, he refused to recommend indicting her."

    How could he, against the orders of someone who doesn't want to be embarrassed by having to decide whether to pardon her or throw her to the wolves? Come next year, with someone new in the job, he's off the hook, decision-wise.

  2. I believe they are equally contemptible, but Comey has violated his oath the uphold the laws by refusing to recommend prosecution. - Elric

  3. There's lots of talk about Hillary's reasons for using her private server for convenience or to evade FOIA requests. Both ring of still conceding her some benefit of the doubt as to her nefarious intentions. What never gets mentioned is the very real possibility that the server/servers in question and the idea behind them was much more complex a setup than is being looked into,(or perhaps intentionally being avoided the light of scrutiny).
    Is it possible in light of there being multiple servers, that the 13 Blackberries and handful of other devices were in fact run through the different servers (think separate conduits to separate servers) in which the information on those separate servers was pre-sold and allowed access to different factions, be they foreign or domestic.
    That would be a real pay to play, and a real case of high treason.

    It would answer many more questions as to intent and most know already that money and power are the Clinton's prime motivator.

    1. "Convenience" is not a "benefit of the doubt" lever here. You can access innumerable e-mail accounts from a single device. In fact, you can access multiple e-mail accounts from a single e-mail client, on a single device. I launch Outlook, and select one of three profiles, each with the related In-boxes, Sent folders, etc., etc. Why the convenience defense was never blown out of the water at the outset of all of this remains a mystery to me. It's not that complicated. She could have carried a single device, with the means to access two discreet e-mail accounts - one her government e-mail account, and the other her private e-mail account - with no blending of content - discreet systems and related e-mails. However, she counts on the ignorance of the masses who believe you can only have one e-mail account per device. I shudder to think how dumb the majority of the general populace is.

    2. I'm still curious why she had at least two e-mail addresses on her private MS Exchange system (something like hrc17@clintonemail.com and hdr22@clintonemail.com). Were they for different purposes? How many others were created to provide other protections? It's easy to make an e-mail address on an Exchange system, so there's no telling how many there were.
      Has a list been released with all the e-mail addresses on that server? Would be interesting.

  4. For H to take a hit she and Bill have to look like they can no longer deliver play for pay. Only then.

    1. That would be an interesting scenario, depending on how it would play out. If she's elected it could go on for some time. If not, leadership of the Democrat party would depend very much on their ability to seem to be able to deliver the goods. It will be interesting to see where their competition comes from.

    2. Good point. There is no alternative readily apparent now but I'm sure Obama will try and take the golden mantle someday. In a competitive global and lawless world bribery is the default tool.

  5. Comey is a tool. He knows the Clintons have looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong memories. French is a fool for NRO.

  6. The biggest loser in this fiasco is the reputation of the FBI. J. Edgar must be rolling in his grave.

  7. The corruption and mendacity of Hillary Clinton doesn't make the corruption and mendacity of Donald Trump any better. Because you are opposed to one does not require you to support the other. That's like being presented with a vial of poison and a loaded gun, and being told that to avoid dying of poisoning, you have to shoot yourself in the head.

    1. It may be true T used money to get favors from politicians but then not only did he admit it but he acted so with his own money. HCandB used elected positions they swore to protect and your money to enrich themselves while frivolously weakening your government, then denied it. If you plan on suicide I would suggest hemlock, the preferred beverage of the equivocal philosopher. Or you could do the right thing and vote for the lesser of two evils.But anyone other than T is just H.

    2. Your suggestion that Trump is the lesser of two evils is, like, your opinion, man. I don't believe they are much different in that respect. On top of Trump's corrupt nature is his incompetence, lack of good judgment, lack of basic understandings as to the functions of government and of our constitutional protections, and (for me, at least), a disturbing lack of understanding or acknowledgement of God or the basic tenets of the Christian faith he claims. Trump and Clinton are not equal, they are both uniquely unqualified and undeserving of being our President, and neither of them deserve your vote. If you detest Hillary so much that anybody would be better than her, that is your right to say so and to vote so. But to claim, as Surber does, that not supporting Trump over Hillary is "scummy" goes too far.

      Vote for Trump if you wish, for Hillary is truly awful, but know what you are voting for: he's protectionist, against personal property rights, against full freedom of the press, for government-run and -paid for healthcare, for commanding troops to commit war crimes, and that is based on things he has actually said during this campaign. I would further argue that based upon all we know about him, the hope that he would make better Supreme Court appointments than Hillary is unwarranted. And I haven't even touched his personal disgustingness.

      Simply put, Trump would be a disaster of a President, and I cannot in good conscience vote for anyone I believe would be a bad President.

      I'm sad to say that I'll probably have to sit out this presidential election, and focus on the House, Senate and other down-ballot elections.

    3. I haven't referred to HER personal disgustingness, or political disgustingness, but I find it 10 or more times bigger than his.

      The corruption of Trump???
      What the hell are you talking about?
      He did not take a $300,000 illegal loan in Whitewater. He did not illegally fire White House travel staffers. He did not commit perjury. He did not sexually harass Paula Jones, who sought $850,000 and got every penny. He did not steal White House furniture. He did not set up a pay-to-play foundation as secretary of State. The Clintons do EVIL. Trump says stuff you don't like.

    5. He did not do those things, but he does stiff contractors, he did scam people out of their money with the fraudulent Trump University, he did get try to use eminent domain to take an old lady's home for his own private business use, he bragged about using campaign contributions to get politicians to do what he wants (including to Hillary Clinton), he did contribute to the Attorney General of Florida (illegally, in fact) right before she decided not to join a lawsuit against his scam university, and held a fundraiser for her at Mar-A-Lago afterwards, and the list goes on.

      Your hatred of Hillary is blinding you to Trump's evil. It's not him saying stuff I don't like. He is a detestable human being and unfit to be President. I'm sorry that a plurality of my fellow Republicans made him our nominee for President. Almost any one of the other candidates would have been much better nominees and would most likely be double digits ahead of Hillary in the polls right now.

      And to call people "scummy" because they do not agree with you that Hillary's corruption means that you should vote for someone else who is also corrupt is pretty low.

    6. Don, using reason and logic on this one is wasting your time.

      As Reagan said, "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so."

      He's got all his false "facts" lined up, you couldn't break them loose with an axe-handle (though it might serve to get his attention.)

    7. Except, Eskyman, that I'm not a liberal. I'm a pro-1st Amendment, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-free market, pro-business, pro-law and order, pro-life, pro-religious liberty conservative Republican who is sickened to see our party nominate someone who, deep down, is a liberal progressive reactionary for President. He will hurt our party. He will hurt our country.

      I know: Hillary Clinton will also hurt our country. I know that. But that doesn't mean I must vote for someone as bad as she is. I know that either Clinton or Trump will likely be elected, but either way it's going to be bad for our country.

      Tell me which of the ""facts"" I listed is false, and I'll apologize.

  8. When J.Edgar wrote "Masters of Deceit",it was people like James Comey he had in mind

  10. Drip. Drip. Drip. On Hillary. It is the Chinese water torture. US Rep. Jason Chaffetz claims that Hillary Clinton bought *USED* Blackberries off eBay because she wanted to use the obsolete model she was accustomed to using but which was no longer being made and sold by the manufacturer. How dumb---how completely stupid and arrogant---can she be to to send and receive classified communications on an outmoded, insecure mobile device, not just in the US but in foreign countries where the presumption has to be she is being spied on by the host country six ways from Sunday?

  11. So we should call the FBI the "Touchables" now?

    If I was Trump..........let that soak in for a while........one of my first acts would be to let Comey know that his resignation has been accepted...before the special prosecutors start clearing out the Obama/Democratic Crime Syndicate, including his (Comey's) accomplice after the fact.

    1. Come was appointed Director in 2013.

      "The position of FBI Director has a fixed 10-year term, and the officeholder cannot be reappointed, unless Congress acts to allow a second appointment of the incumbent. There are no statutory conditions on the President’s authority to remove the FBI Director. "
