FBI Director James Comey announced today that his agency would not be recommending charges against Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton for her mishandling of classified information while head of the State Department.
Conservatives across the country were outraged at the decision, which has been surrounded by other fishy circumstances. The decision was announced just days after Clinton’s husband spoke with Attorney General Loretta Lynch in a secret meeting and on the same day as President Barack Obama joined Clinton on the campaign trail.
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump also thought the outcome of the FBI’s yearlong investigation was unfair and demonstrated how “rigged” the system has been, and he took to Twitter to express his concerns.
“The system is rigged,” Trump tweeted. “Gen. Petraeus got in trouble for far less. Very very unfair! As usual, bad judgment.”

The GOP candidate was right. Gen. David Petraeus, a former CIA director, was indicted for revealing secret information he had gathered during his tenure as a military commander in Iraq. Petraeus had shown the information to a woman he was seeing romantically and who was also writing his biography.
In other words, the FBI thought Petraeus deserved to be punished for sharing classified information with one person, but Clinton shared classified information with as many people as could hack into her private email server, including our enemies, and yet, she gets off scot-free.
The difference between the two? Petraeus wasn’t Obama’s only hope of continuing the president’s liberal policies and preserving his progressive legacy. Clinton, on the other hand, welcomed the president on the campaign trail today in North Carolina.
As usual, there is one set of rules for the Clintons and different rules for everybody else — especially if that Clinton is the presumed Democrat presidential nominee.
