For all the hoopla about Clinton being a criminal, it appears Trump is the one who has been caught red handed breaking the law.

I believe we have a thread on this, and the response is

Hillary did it.

I thought we didn't care about presidential candidates breaking the law. Are we changing that now?

You realize that multiple REPUBLICAN-led investigations of Clinton have failed to find any illegal activities?

Considering the blinding hatred they have for her, I'm sure they would have found something if she did.

Oh, Hillary's been caught multiple times.

She just ain't been charged yet.

I thought the FBI said she was guilty but didn't feel like taking the issue further ?

Also, it's no wonder Trump wont release his tax returns, the press will actually do their job when they want to.

Yes, of course we are concearnedd.

But there is a difference between an accusation by some bloke on the internet, an accusation by an investigating agency, a charge and a conviction.

No, pundits said they had said that.

They said she had done things wrong, but nothing criminal.

I didn't know the FBI decided who was guilty. Do you live in a police state?

Don't be crazy. Laws don't apply to Democrats -- especially if they're Clintons.

When history looks back at this election, I hope they see that even Trump's own supporters never (not once) attempted to respond to accusations of his malfeasance with, "No, sir, you are wrong, Donald is a good man!" but instead reflexively knee-jerked with the other candidate's supposed malfeasance instead. No impassioned defense, no reasoning, just a scratch of the ass and an arm pointing to someone else (usually named Hillary Clinton.)

I would have a lot more respect for Trump types if I heard any of them, even once, proclaim, "Yeah, he's got a pointed history of scumbaggery, financial fraud, low morals, personal vindictiveness, petty insults, no qualifications to run for public office, and speaking at a third-grade level... but we still like him better than that other lady."

Made all the more delicious because the same people would (from 2008 to 2016) reliably erupt into howls whenever Obama pulled the "but Dubya!" defense. Even though that's exactly how they are treating their preferred current presidential candidate: Accept responsibility for nothing, admit nothing, and simply deflect onto the other candidate's supposedly bad/worse behavior.

Given that, I'm voting for neither one of them.

258,000 is pocket change for him. He'll just reimburse the charity and be done with it. Maybe the Clintons have this money lying around to pay back?

Algeria donated $250,000 to $500,000 to the Clintons "charity"
The Nation of Brunei donated $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 to the Clintons "charity"
Jamaica donated $50,000 to $100,000 to the Clintons "charity"
Kuwait donated $5,000,000 to $10,000,000 to the Clintons "charity"

Qatar donated $5.8 million to the Clintons "charity"
Saudi Arabia donated up to $50 million to the Clintons "charity"
United Arab Emirates donated up to $11.5 million to the Clintons "charity"

BONUS: Russian banksters payed Hillary 500,000 for a speech in Moscow.

No, the FBI straight said she committed felonious acts but they didn't feel she did them with intent to commit crime so they didn't recommend pressing charges. They also said she was thoughtless and careless.

I am kind of shocked they didn't say 'Broads. Am I right?' as well.

The FBI has clearly stated that Hillary Clinton broke the law but she is too stupid to face charges and somehow that has been turned into 'They found no wrong doings' not even a couple of months later when it was clearly established that they did find plenty of wrong doings.

Supporting Clinton is worse than supporting Trump and that is quite the feat.
But Comey insisted that Clinton did not break the law.

"The question I always look at is, is there evidence that would establish beyond a reasonable doubt that somebody engaged in conducted that violated a criminal statute. And my judgment here is there is not," Comey said.

Now you provide the quote where the FBI says she committed a felony.

If Trump broke the law he should be charged.

Whether Hillary did something (or the inevitable Bush/Obama/Reagan did it) doesn't matter. Each issue should be determined based on it's own merits and everyone, no matter who they are should have to follow the rule of law.

For example, I always felt further investigation of the White House for leaking Valerie Plame's identity was warranted. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valerie_Plame

That we let this shit slide is sad and a reflection on the American people that we allow this corruption of our government.

Donations to a charity by a foreign country - not illegal

Also the scare quotes on charity are not warranted

Although I don't believe in such mularky, the data is quite overwhelming....starting to think that Trump must be the anti-christ.

These scandals would have destroyed any other candidate at this point. Now, I get the average Trump supporter is auto-vote, but for non-supporting, Republicans, party loyalty has truly overwhelmed their preference.

Maybe they vote for all other offices except POTUS as a compromise?

Oh, yes. The truth exists of which only Drew is privy/discerning enough to understand. The rest of us are playing catch up.

As far as BJ is concerned, any politician that does things he doesn't like is breaking the law. That is why he criticizes Hillary but not Trump. Anything Trump does is fine, because Republican.

If Trump actually gets elected, look for all Federal employees traveling on business to be ordered to stay at Trump hotels...

For security reasons, naturally. Security's YUUUUUUUGE at Trump hotels. Not because of any conflict of interest, no way.

Clinton clearly broke the law, the FBI said so. So what now?
Well nothing I guess.
Clearly a precedent has been set.
