Americans React With Fury: ‘If Hillary Doesn’t Follow The Law, Why Should I?’

Hillary Clinton has been exonerated by the FBI, and it really is because she’s above the law.

FBI director James Comey said in the announcement 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.”

He added that “prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past.”

This is ridiculous, as Zero Hedge notes that:

What is shocking is that the FBI director was clearly ignoring the US code itself, where in Section 793, subsection (f),”Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information“, it makes it quite clear that intent is not a key consideration in a case like this when deciding to press charges.

So are there any cases where the FBI was involved in an investigation against someone who did something similar to what Hillary did, and without any malicious intent? In fact there is, and you don’t have go look back very far in legal history to find such a case.

Less than one year ago, Bryan H. Nishimura pleaded guilty to “unauthorized removal and retention of classified information” without malicious intent. This is exactly what the FBI says they couldn’t charge Hillary.

Now many Americans are asking the obvious: if Hillary isn’t following the law, why can’t I do the same? InfoWars reports:

“Why should we follow the law when our leaders don’t?” asked one respondent, adding, “This Clinton bullshit has sealed the deal for me. We are ruled by a corrupt cabal that is above the law.”

“If Clinton wins, I’m not paying taxes anymore or following federal laws,” wrote another, adding, “Simple as that. It’s over. They can jail or kill me, I don’t care. I’d rather live as a free American for a day, then spend a lifetime under criminals.”

“If Hillary Clinton is not indicted why should I ever follow another law? I’ve played by the rules my entire life. Every day,” wrote another enraged American.

Innumerable people on Twitter also asked why they should bother to follow the law given that it doesn’t even appear to apply to the nation’s highest elected representatives.

Think Hillary would’ve been indicted had she been anyone else? The answer should be obvious.
