Peggy Noonan on Hillary Clinton and James Comey’s decision against prosecution:
It is legitimately asked whether this is a government of laws or a government of men—of failed, flawed human beings. Are the rich and powerful always assumed now to have the decisive finger on the scales of justice?
From Review & Outlook (WSJ):
Mr. Comey has done such a masterful job of public relations that Democrats and the media are now claiming that anyone who disagrees with his conclusion is attacking him for “doing his job.” But Mr. Comey didn’t do his job of serving the public good. He protected his job with a dismayingly political performance.
Mr. Comey didn’t interview Mrs. Clinton until three days before he announced his prosecutorial verdict. By then her lawyers surely knew the probe was in a mopping up phase. You can bet at that point Mrs. Clinton didn’t tell the FBI the same lies she told the public for more than a year. But we’ll never see the transcript of that FBI interview, because Mr. Comey’s transparency only goes so far.
