I must admit to being shocked by all the attention being paid to Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s comments Friday that she “fully expect(s) to accept” the findings of FBI investigators looking into whether would-be presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton violated the law with rega the findings of FBI investigators looking into whether would-be presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton violated the law.
Because as I read her comment, all Lynch is saying is that she’s not about to interfere with a criminal investigation being conducted by federal authorities.
CONSIDERING THAT LYNCH herself is the nation’s highest-ranking law enforcement official, it would be a crime in and of itself if she were to try to interfere.
All she has really said is that she’s going to let officials go about their jobs and let the process go where it may.
But then again, the level of political partisanship that our nation has risen to is so intense that it is no wonder some people But then again, the level of political partisanship that our nation has risen to is so intense that it is no wonder some people are desperate to believe anything they hear.

Just as Bill Clinton endured his share of investigations, most of which turned out to be nothing whatsoever (remember Whitewater?). And as for his fling with an intern, we will forevermore be debating whether Bill was a felon worthy of incarceration?
Or just a pig whose wife ought to be entitled to punish him any way she sees fit?
But because the name is “Clinton,” we’re now going to have these same people concocting schemes that they say warrant prison time for Hillary. If they couldn’t get Bill, they’ll now go after her.
IN FACT, THESE kind of people are the ones who probably view the world as one that deprived them of a chance to incarcerate both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, so now they feel like they’re “owed one” by going after Hillary.
Particularly amongst those who feel like the real problem with Bill Clinton was that he was weak and let his wife lead him astray.
A sexist thought, to be sure. But then again, these are the kind of people who rant and rage that “political correctness” keeps them from speaking the truth – or at least that version of the truth often included in the babblings of presidential dreamer Donald Trump (whose only chances of victory could literally be if something were to come about with these "charges")!
Now I’m not sure what to think of the allegations that are being spewed with regards to the one-time Secretary of State, whom they claim got careless with her use of personal e-mail accounts and wound up disclosing matters of national security.
A PART OF me thinks these allegations are as overhyped as any claim ever made against Bill Clinton. In fact, it was Bill who met with Lynch recently to discuss the matter.
Which is what led to Lynch feeling compelled to say publicly she plans to let the investigators do their thing, and nothing more.
This is likely to become an issue where we’ll probably learn the truth long after the details can be used as ammunition in an Election Day campaign. And we’re likely to learn many years from now just how incredibly stupid and trivial the whole affair was.
Which will make our generation’s children wonder just how vacuous we could be in letting such trivia dominate our thoughts?
