Hillary: The One That Got Away

The One That Got Away

“Fish,” the old man said. “Fish, you are going to have to die anyway. Do you have to kill me too?” ― Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea

If some in the general public were outraged, so were some in the FBI … This week, FBI Director James Comey testified that Hillary Clinton and her aides had compromised classified information in an extremely careless fashion, exposed it to hostile adversaries, violated public records law, destroyed public documents (some permanently, so that they cannot be forensically recovered) and that Clinton made repeated false statements in public about her actions. But, he concluded, no charges should be filed. Clinton apparently told the FBI she didn’t understand classified markings and all the technology at issue, and that she didn’t know she was doing anything wrong. And the FBI takes her at her word. Comey is well-respected by politicians in both political parties and by many within his own ranks. But there is new dissent after his Clinton decision, which some FBI insiders found baffling and contrary to normal practices. (FBI Pros Question Decision Not to Charge Hillary Clinton)

Hemingway, he’s not. In Jim Comey’s version of The Old Man And The Sea, the marlin always jumps the hook. Apparently, it’s a fish that’s too big to catch.
