Here’s a headline news story that has me scratching my head: FBI Says Lack of Public Interest in Hillary Emails Justifies Withholding Documents.

Hillary Clinton’s case isn’t interesting enough to the public to justify releasing the FBI’s files on her, the bureau said this week in rejecting an open-records request by a lawyer seeking to have the former secretary of state punished for perjury.

Ty Clevenger, the lawyer, has been trying to get Mrs. Clinton and her personal lawyers disbarred for their handling of her official emails during her time as secretary of state. He’s met with resistance among lawyers, and now his request for information from the FBI’s files has been shot down.

In the end, the FBI didn’t recommend charges against Mrs. Clinton, concluding that while she risked national security, she was too technologically inept to know the dangers she was running, so no case could be made against her.

“I’m just stunned. This is exactly what I would have expected had Mrs. Clinton won the election, but she didn’t. It looks like the Obama Administration is still running the FBI,” Mr. Clevenger told The Washington Times.

“How can a story receive national news coverage and not be a matter of public interest? If this is the new standard, then there’s no such thing as a public interest exception,” he said.

Technologically Inept

By my estimation, at least half the nation is interested in Hillary’s emails.

Hillary is not only technologically inept, she is inept in every way shape and form.

That’s my opinion, and you may disagree. That’s OK.

Dissent is welcome as long as you answer this simple question: Since when is being inept an excuse for breaking the law?

Bonus question: Is Hillary running the FBI?
