On Thursday, a report from the Department of Justice Inspector General revealed that former FBI Director James Comey, the man who was responsible for heading up the investigation into Hillary Clinton using a private email account for government business, was himself using a private email to conduct FBI business.
You would think a man who tasked with helping enforce the nation’s laws would be a little more aware of things like this, especially since he was doing this while investigating someone else for participating in the same behavior.
Well, Hillary was none too happy to hear about Comey and had a three-word response about it posted on Twitter.
As you might recall, ironically, Comey was the man who headed the investigation into twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal and recommended no charges be made against Mrs. Clinton, citing her supposed lack of “intent” of wrongdoing. But Comey would also later pen a damning letter concerning new emails related to the Hillary investigation; that letter would later be cited by Hillary as being a major contributing factor to her devastating upset defeat by Donald Trump.
“We identified numerous instances in which Comey used a personal email account to conduct unclassified FBI business,” reads the IG report. “We found that, given the absence of exigent circumstances and the frequency with which the use of personal email occurred, Comey’s use of a personal email account for unclassified FBI business to be inconsistent with Department policy.”
Hillary was none too pleased about the grave irony of the report, and responded with three sarcastic words on Thursday evening: “But my emails.”

It’s highly plausible here that Comey’s own usage of a private email might have been what got Clinton off the hook in the first place. It could be that Comey added that whole ‘intent’ provision onto the law, knowing full well he was involved in the same kind of activity and didn’t want to land himself in hot water.
Stuff like this makes you just want to take a step back, look at the government and just weep. How in the world did such faithless, foolish men and women manage to get into office?
The incompetence is really too much.
