Do you think that Hillary has this election in the bag after being cleared by the FBI? Or do you think that Trump is going to beat her in a landslide?
This gif perfectly illustrates what would happen to America under Hillary:

Here’s what Rush Limbaugh had to say about James Comey’s announcement today:
RUSH: Stop the tape. “Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws,” blah, blah, blah, “governing the handling of classified info, there is evidence they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” What does that say about her qualifications? My only point is here, there’s plenty of room to go after her on incompetence, can’t trust her. I don’t think she should get a pass.
“Hey, you know, she deleted emails just like you and I do. She deleted a portion of her inbox, get too big, she takes some emails out, you and I do the same thing.” Well, the secretary of state’s not you and me, number one. Number two, you talk about intent. Why have an off-site server in the first place? Why have a server that is not a part of the State Department, therefore the government record, if you are not intending to traffic in secrecy? And if you are intending to traffic in secrecy and you happen to be trafficking in top secret, classified data, and you are extremely careless, grossly negligent in it, do we want somebody like that at the helm of this country? Here’s the rest of the bite.
COMEY: Seven email chains concern matters that were classified at the top secret special access program at the time they were sent and received. There is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position or in the position of those with whom she was corresponding about those matters should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation.
RUSH: All right. Now, look, I’m gonna go out on a limb here. I don’t know Comey. I only know people who do know Comey. I first heard of James Comey back when he was John Ashcroft’s aide. He was one of his top deputies, and Ashcroft is from Missouri, impeccable character. And so Comey benefits from that, in terms of my knowledge. I only people who know Comey and they say the same things about Comey they said about Pat Fitzgerald. He’s above doubt. He’s a straight shooter. He’s law and order, and he’s not corruptible and so forth. I’ve heard all this stuff. Okay, so let’s go with that.
Yeah, I know his conclusion was no reasonable prosecutor would go after this case, but he has certainly laid out in great detail exactly what she did that is against the law, and the shield is that she didn’t intend it. He has laid out a case of gross negligence. He has laid out a case that she was irresponsible in the way she was doing this. That cannot be denied. His conclusion, no reasonable prosecutor would go after this case, therefore he’s not recommending such, fine and dandy. But it doesn’t erase that the substance of his remarks here is to portray Hillary Clinton as grossly negligent and incompetent and reckless. He did that. Here’s the next bite.
The fact that he says at the end of it, “Well, I don’t think there’s evidence of potential violations of the statutes. Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor” — what I’m thinking here is for you legal beagles, is even in such a case, prosecutors threaten the perp in order to make some kind of a deal to get some kind of a concession, admission of guilt. It’s rare that, in a case like this or similar cases, that the prosecutor, “You know what? Nothing to see here, we’ll see you later, adios, cheerio.”
They’re always calling the potential defendant’s counsel trying to make some kind of deal. Lesser charges for an admission of this, an admission of that. There was none of that in this case. There doesn’t appear to me that there was any intention, any effort to actually find Mrs. Clinton culpable.
