When the FBI investigation [sic] of Hillary was first announced, AJ wrote that the process was intended solely as a means to give the woman an official clean bill of health and remove it as a campaign issue. Our own CT senators, both lawyers presumably capable of reading criminal statutes and one of whom is a master of the use of political prosecution, have demonstrated AJ’s prescience. Here. moments after the FBI’s announcement of non-prosecution, are the twin mouthpieces:
Murphy: “This isn’t surprising. We’ve expected this announcement for a very long time. I’m frankly sorry it took this long to clear her name and hopefully this campaign can return to the issues that really matter to the American people.”
My hope is this marks a turning point where we can get away from name calling and start talking about real issues.”
It was an off way to “clear her name”, but that’s a minor matter: just like the lady’s husband’s impeachment, “it’s time to move on”.
Then Blumenthal: [“FBI Director Comey]’s a former colleague and a friend, and most important, his record demonstrates that he has both the capacity and the determination to make judgments about criminal matters with the highest degree of integrity and professionalism,” Blumenthal said. “So, I trust his judgment, and I believe it will have a great deal of credibility with the American people.”
Blumenthal added, “It will be more surprising and outrageous if the campaign of Donald Trump continues to focus on this issue when it has been decided authoritatively and credibly that no criminal charges are appropriate.
Nothing to see here, move along, move along.
