It’s the Seriousness of the Allegations, Stupid

"We have no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, but the seriousness of the allegations, and the weight of circumstantial information, compel an effort to establish the facts." – Reagan’s October Surprise

the answer you want dilbert

When an unsecured email server was used to handle confidential governmental communications, Comey found “no clear evidence” of Secretary Clinton’s intent to violate the law, so he concluded that “no reasonable prosecutor would have pursued charges.”

When the IG investigated the FBI, Horowitz found “no clear evidence” that the people who headed the Clinton email probe were biased despite their biased comments and therefore concluded that there was nothing a reasonable prosecutor could pursue.

I wonder if Special Counsel Mueller will apply those same standards to the facts when he wraps up the “Trump-Russia-Collusion” witch hunt. Although I guess you have to ask yourself if facts really matter when you’re looking to ensure an “unbiased” prosecution conclusion.

dilbert data wrong
