"Clinnocent Until Proven Guilty"

"To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now."
"As a result, although the Department of Justice makes final decisions on matters like this, we are expressing to Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case."
What I conclude from this, and what millions of other people will also conclude, is that James B Comey doesn't want to end up as a skeleton in Der Rodham's closet. She is clearly above the law and has been for the last two or three decades, which is as strong an indication as any that the United States is a disgraced nation under a failing democracy. And this is yet further cause for deep anxiety about what is to follow; every single member of the U.S. military is under oath to uphold the Constitution against enemies both foreign and domestic.

Words either mean something or they don't.
