Well now: “Federal investigators formally investigated top Hillary Rodham Clinton aide Huma Abedin for the crime of embezzlement after confirming she took a “Babymoon” vacation and maternity time at the State Department without expending her formal leave, resulting in thousands of dollars of pay she wasn’t entitled to receive, The Washington Times has learned.” The case started with the FBI and went onto to the Justice Department, and – surprise, surprise! – the Justice Department declined to seek criminal charges against Ms. Abedin, despite the fact that they apparently had a case. Note that this is not actually a surprise, and if you are surprised then I envy you your naivete.
Look, I don’t expect that the Democratic party faithful will ever concede that for the last seven years there’s been one law for the politically connected, and another law for the rest of us. No man or woman likes to voluntarily admit that they’ve been assisting in the slow erosion of the laws and mores of the Republic. But I do expect them to understand that those of us on the Right who are aware of the situation do not concede that the Left has the moral standing to speak on anything involving ethical behavior. Let alone lecture us on the subject. This sort of thing has happened too many times for us to just keep ignoring it.
