The Justice Department representative overseeing the newly opened Hillary e-mail case is Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik. He is a friend to John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman. Kadzik was Podesta’s lawyer during the Lewinsky affair, helping Podesta wiggle out of perjury charges. Why hasn’t the DOJ noticed the conflict of interest?
Will the DOJ notice the conflict of interest now?
Of course not.
So we can be sure in advance that Kadizk will find no evidence of wrongdoing on Huma’s laptop, whether it is there or not.
Trump, bless his simple, swinish heart, is right: the election is being rigged. Yes the votes will still be counted, and Trump will still lose, but only Trump’s full awfulness has been exposed, not the full awfulness of his opponent.
I’m sure the ones trying to do the rigging are telling themselves it is for the greater good, that anything is better than Trump, but it reveals that the country is being run by an insular, venial, self-referential clique of assholes, and there is nothing you can do about it.
