When Loretta Met Bill
Weekly Standard, Aug 21, 2017 Edition, The Editors

In many quarters of the American news media today, seasoned journalists seem incapable of pondering those parts of reality that don’t complement their political worldviews. It goes beyond “bias”—we’re all biased. This is negligence.

Consider the trove of emails between FBI and Department of Justice officials published this week. The emails concern the June 27, 2016, meeting between former president Bill Clinton and then-attorney general Loretta Lynch. As readers may remember, Clinton paid an apparently impromptu visit to the attorney general aboard her DoJ plane while it was parked at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor airport. It was extremely improper for the two to meet for any reason. Clinton was the husband of the subject of an FBI investigation, and Lynch, as attorney general, had the ultimate authority over that investigation.

<snip>

That brings us to this week, when the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) published more than 400 pages of emails received from the Department of Justice in response to a Freedom of Information Act inquiry. The documents are newsworthy, whatever the arbiters of news may think.

The first thing to be said about this trove is that for a year the FBI pretended it didn’t exist. The ACLJ’s initial open-records request came up with nothing: “No records responsive to your request were located,” the bureau said in a letter. But the same request to DoJ was answered with scores of emails, many of them to and from FBI officials. Why the initial stonewall from the FBI?

This is a long and thorough article on what happened, did not happen and should have happened---asking the right questions about the press, DOJ and FBI.

Well worth the read, IMO.

RIV I did read it completely. However I don't expect it to gain traction on this site, since it has no Anti-Trump angle.

I wonder if I will prove to be wrong, when it reaches 5, 10, 20, 30 or more posts?

I do hope folks read the article, even if they don't post.  It's well researched and presented.   :beer:

I printed it out and read it hoping it would provide some actual information. Unfortunately I found none!

It is however a very good indictment of the MSM in today's America!

There was an article posted, last night I think, about Hillary Clinton being offered a plea deal.  That little bit of information supposedly came from one of her lawyers.  Perhaps it is true.  I hope not, she should be in jail.  We all know that.  And we all know it will never happen.  We also all know that the MSM isn't going to cover something like this until they are forced to.

Then there's this:
Quote
But the president-elect struck a very different tone Tuesday, arguing that Mrs. Clinton had suffered enough and the country needed to heal.

“I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with the New York Times. “She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways.” He also said the Clinton Foundation has done “good work.”

Perhaps if someone in DC were actually interested in prosecuting her it would help.
Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side.

I am afraid the Clintons have way too much dirt on too many people in DC for her to ever be prosecuted.  It would take a true outsider to do it.

Because some of felt a part of something special over the years.   

I suppose it's similar to having a child that you have love and nurtured through puberty turn out to be a serial killer.

You still love them in your special way...no matter what.     :laugh:

You, and your fellow anti-anti-Trumpers, have provided awesome and insightful commentary on the actual story.

There's been nothing constructive in any of your criticism.

Just last night you felt the need to bash this place as an anti Trump safe haven and continuously play the victim card.

That can't be construed as anything but hate and disdain for TBR.

No, it isn't,  and your hyperbole is not helpful (nor "constructive").

Hate is not in my vocabulary. My criticism is mean to be constructive, not disdaining by any rational person.

Having been here and interacted with you prior to this election cycle, I believe that to be true but that is NOT how it comes off to others.

   Gee, Wally we wouldn't last 10 minutes on TOS 'insinuating' Freepers are to stupid to understand certain written Material, much less click on links. 
   With each passing day @truth_seeker  you are reminding me more and more of that Eddie character on Leave it to Beaver, always stirring up $hit, to much competition for me.
    More power to ya, you and cohorts are very, very entertaining here.

It's not "intolerable",  <Nope>.   Don't put words in my mouth. 

I love this forum so much, it's why I can't leave.  I'm weak like that.  Sue me. 

@truth_seeker did nothing wrong yesterday, and to suspend him was totally uncalled for.

Compare the past 3 dozen posts from you and him and we'll see who wins the "Snark" medal.

WhoTF are you to question whether somebody hates TBR...while the owner and he are currently speaking to each other?
