There’s an old saying: “No good deed goes unpunished.” That’s especially true for those who go out of their way to protect the Clintons. Their self-sacrifice often results in Bill and Hillary sailing blithely on, while the defender ends up with a ruined career or reputation, or even a prison sentence.
The latest human traffic cone to be mowed down by Hillary's campaign bus is FBI Director James Comey. The media had assured us that Comey was a “straight-shooter” who would never risk his reputation to play along with a politically-motivated cover-up. And so it seemed throughout his press conference, as he laid out a damning case proving the high cost to US security caused by Hillary’s dishonesty and evasiveness. It was the type of statement that most government employees would hear from a DA making a closing case to a jury. But suddenly at the end, he pulled a surprise “no intent” get-out-of-jail-free card out of his hat. Once again, a Clinton skated away from responsibility while the person who bent over backward to arrange it saw his reputation permanently tarnished.
But that wasn’t the end. Letting Hillary off the hook for things that would have put anyone else in federal prison wasn’t good enough for Bill Clinton. In an act that deserves an Olympic gold medal for ingratitude, the former President told a group of Asian American journalists in Las Vegas that Comey’s (indisputably true) statement that Hillary endangered national security by hosting classified data on her unsecured email server was “the biggest load of bull I’ve ever heard.” (Bigger than “I did…NOT…have…sexual relations with that woman”?) He questioned how anyone could believe that the 300 or so career diplomats who were also on Hillary’s email would ever have discussed these things if they thought it would endanger national security. Oh, wait, I know! Maybe when they were communicating with the SECRETARY OF STATE, they never imagined that that she was using an unsecured email server cobbled together in someone’s bathroom.
James Comey just learned a valuable lesson: When you throw yourself over a mud puddle to clear the path for the Clintons to proceed, don’t be surprised when they not only walk right over you, they also step on your face on purpose.
