With each passing day of the Obama administration, it’s harder and harder to be shocked by the corruption that leaks from its bowels. That’s why no one is surprised to learn that the FBI never intended to prosecute Hillary Clinton for sending classified material using a home-brew server as secretary of state.

As John Schindler writes, the FBI grew more politicized under President Obama which made it impossible to do its job “at least where high-ranking Democrats are concerned.” And though it’s not shocking that Obama would use the bureau as a political machine, it’s angering none the less.

It’s been made painfully clear that on more than one occasion, Clinton lied about her knowledge of classified materials being sent through her private e-mail. The FBI redacted files that implicate her and released them late in the day on Friday before a long Labor Day weekend. And as Schindler notes:

Worse, the FBI completely ignored the appearance of highly classified signals intelligence in Hillary’s email, including information lifted verbatim from above-Top Secret NSA reports back in 2011. This crime, representing the worst compromise of classified information in EmailGate – that the public knows of, at least – was somehow deemed so uninteresting that nobody at the FBI bothered to ask anybody on Team Clinton about it.

Then came the immunity deals: the technician who set up the server, Clinton’s lawyer, a State Department technician, and Cheryl Mills, DoS chief of staff and counselor under Secretary Clinton. Not only is she responsible for overseeing the deletion of tens of thousands of e-mails, but she also sat in on FBI interviews regarding EmailGate.

“No wonder they couldn’t prosecute a case,” said House Oversight Committee chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz in response. “They were handing out immunity deals like candy.”

Schindler adds, “How exactly Cheryl Mills got immunity, and what its terms were, is the long-awaited ‘smoking gun’ in EmailGate, the clear indication that, despite countless man-hours expended on the year-long investigation, James Comey and his FBI never had any intention of prosecuting Hillary Clinton – or anyone – for her mishandling of classified information as secretary of state.”

And now the revelation that Obama was in on it the whole time sets a new level of depravity. He said from the beginning that he knew nothing about Clinton’s private e-mail and learned about it like everyone else, “on the news.” However, the FBI has documents with the president’s alias communicating in dozens of e-mails with the secretary. Even Clinton’s right-hand lady, Huma Abedin, was shocked to learn this in her FBI interview.

“How is this not classified?” she responded in shock.

Of course, she immediately asked for a copy of the redacted e-mail surely for insurance purposes. Talk about a get-out-of-jail-free card! If Obama can get away with using Clinton’s illegal server, anyone can.

Like Schindler states, “This is raw, naked politics in all its ugly and cynical glory.”
