Leafing through the FBI’s 302 of its interview with Hillary Clinton, one might come away with the impression that she is a big fat idiot (to borrow the inelegant locution of Minnesota’s unfunniest former comedian). That impression would be justified based on the text of the interview notes, but it would be mistaken. Rather, Hillary Clinton is a big fat liar.
Well, okay, we knew that. The seriousness and absurdity of the lies she has retailed have never been quite so apparent. You might say that her lies are the only thing transparent about her. How she is to be hoisted upward to the presidency of the United States is less a feat of political engineering than a triumph of the will.
The Clintons have soiled everything and everyone they touch. In this case, FBI Director James Comey has made himself a laughingstock. We knew that already too. The 302 just puts an exclamation point on it.
Another thing we knew already is that the Clintons have no shame. Their shamelessness is phenomenal. The social conscience has been drained from each of them. Mrs. Clinton is a study in shamelessness. She is up there with men behind bars who have dedicated their lives to dishonest pursuits. It is a considerable understatement to say that she is practiced in the art of deception.
We knew that too, but the 302 again puts an exclamation point on it, as it does on the incredible double standard governing the disposition of her case. It is a national disgrace all the way around, a real tribute to the Age of Obama.
