Let’s Be Careful Out There

The initial IG report clearly found that

“Comey's retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement.” 

In olden days that would have produced an indictment but in our postmodern, postjustice era we find that  once again that

“Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” – James Comey, July 5, 2016

Thus we have a new standard of justice; even if you’re eviscerated by the DOJ’s IG for illegal actions, as long as you are not charged with said offenses you are free to go about the Twitterverse making sanctimonious claims and demanding apologies from your accusers.

I interrupt today’s post with a message for James Comey from beyond the grave:

So you are all free to go about business, legal or not. Just be advised, there’s an ill wind blowing our way so we should all get busy with hurricane preparedness. And remember, let’s all be careful out there.
