Hillary Clinton has just topped the classical definition of chutzpah. It used to be the youngster who murdered his parents and then pled in court for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan. Now it’s the former state secretary, who has shirked her duties in the email probe at every turn and whose key aides have taken cover of the Fifth Amendment, pleading for the director of the FBI, James Comey, to explain the new issue he’s discovered in her emails — “without further delay.”
That takes some brass. The last thing America needs right now is for the director of the FBI to take yet another powder in respect of Mrs. Clinton. He has reopened the case for his own good reasons (we’d like to think that the near revolt of some of the FBIs most experienced agents has something to do with it). The best thing at this juncture is to let the bureau work the problem until it gets to the bottom of it. Let a grand jury be called so that American citizens can decide whether to indict.
