Loretta's canned responses aren't cutting it. She's good at burning time, even better than Holder.

Yes...

Because having an unsecure, private server with classified material that the head of the FBI called "recklessly careless" is a witch-hunt"...

Pretty much. LL also avoided taking responsibility while she "sort of " took responsibility for the decisions. After the tarmac meeting, she sort of deferred, but didn't recuse, was sort of in charge, but sort of a mere rubber stamper to the process of "career professionals" whom she was reluctant about giving details. She attempted to stay in some grey zone of authority. When asked about the NYT's article about her future in the next Clinton administration, she went into her well rehearsed narrative. She's no fool and I think she really likes flying around in her own plane.

Nope. Another investigation under the Obama regime would be a waste of time. If the obvious corruption in giving Hillary Clinton a free pass for her illegal server doesn't convince everyone Barack and company operate above the laws they eagerly impose on the rest of us then nothing will.

Lynch's performance yesterday where she sought to defer responsibility for ignoring Hillary's law breaking based on some lawyers contrivance of "intent" brought to mind Hillary's steadfast claim that as Secretary of state she wasn't in charge of consulate security at Benghazi. Naturally Hillary wants to keep Lynch aboard, like Holder before her she has demonstrated her loyalty to the Clinton's above the law.

Remember when a firestorm erupted because Dubya fired 8 assistant AG's for refusing to prosecute Democrats? What was touted as a scandalous corruption of the pristine DOJ back then is now praised as a thorough and impartial investigation when applied to Hillary.

The reality is that Lady Justice has no blindfold or if she did, she's peeking out from beneath the bottom. The most important aspect of Loretta's discreet meeting with Bill, according to many, was the optics. It's an interesting way to say it only looked slimy but it really wasn't. I think a committee member asked LL a question about ethics training.
