"In fact, Ms. Clinton’s emails have endured much more scrutiny than an ordinary person’s would have, and the
criminal case against her was so thin that charging her would have been to treat her very differently.
Ironically, even as the email issue consumed so much precious airtime, several pieces of news reported
Wednesday should have taken some steam out of the story. First is a memo FBI Director James B. Comey
sent to his staff explaining that the decision not to recommend charging Ms. Clinton was “not a
cliff-hanger” and that people “chest-beating” and second-guessing the FBI do not know what they are
talking about. Anyone who claims that Ms. Clinton should be in prison accuses, without evidence, the
FBI of corruption or flagrant incompetence."
"Imagine how history would judge today’s Americans if, looking back at this election, the record showed
that voters empowered a dangerous man because of . . . a minor email scandal. There is no equivalence
between Ms. Clinton’s wrongs and Mr. Trump’s manifest unfitness for office."
