Hillary Clinton just got away with a crime that the FBI director refuses to call a crime.
In a stunning announcement, FBI Director James Comey explained that “although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information”, Hillary Clinton will not be indicted because “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
Keep in mind that this is after Comey revealed that Clinton’s email servers (yes, more than one) contained classified information:
From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification. Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were “up-classified” to make them Confidential; the information in those had not been classified at the time the e-mails were sent.
And Comey also admitted that he could not rule out the possibility that Hillary Clinton’s actions resulted in “hostile actors” gaining access to her emails:
We also assess that Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal e-mail domain was both known by a large number of people and readily apparent. She also used her personal e-mail extensively while outside the United States, including sending and receiving work-related e-mails in the territory of sophisticated adversaries. Given that combination of factors, we assess it is possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail account.
Still, Comey insists that “we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts.”

ZeroHedge, however, did find a case that would support bringing charges against Clinton:
According to court documents, Nishimura was a Naval reservist deployed in Afghanistan in 2007 and 2008. In his role as a Regional Engineer for the U.S. military in Afghanistan, Nishimura had access to classified briefings and digital records that could only be retained and viewed on authorized government computers. Nishimura, however, caused the materials to be downloaded and stored on his personal, unclassified electronic devices and storage media. He carried such classified materials on his unauthorized media when he traveled off-base in Afghanistan and, ultimately, carried those materials back to the United States at the end of his deployment. In the United States, Nishimura continued to maintain the information on unclassified systems in unauthorized locations, and copied the materials onto at least one additional unauthorized and unclassified system.
Yes, you read right. The FBI charged Nishimuri, 50, for doing the same thing that Hillary Clinton was just cleared of doing. Like Hillary Clinton, Nishimuri had no malicious intent.
Add to that the fact that Hillary Clinton lied about these emails having nothing to do with work:

What we are now faced with is a crisis level of corruption among governmental officials who, regardless of political party, cover each other’s backs while throwing the rest of us to the wolves. Although this case involves Hillary Clintom, the ramifications are far-reaching.
