We know two things:
- Hillary Clinton should be indicted. No, seriously. She is long past the point where most people would have been indicted. If her name was, say, Martha Libby – and, more importantly, if she was not the presumptive Democratic front-runner – then Hillary Clinton would be rapidly approaching her trial date by now. If she is not indicted, there is going to be a godawful feces-storm that will stretch out into the term of the next administration – and quite possibly the administration after that.
- Hillary Clinton will not be indicted.
Here’s the thing: I don’t know a partisan Republican who is professionally upset that Hillary Clinton will not be indicted. We all want her to be indicted, sure. And we’re personally appalled that she won’t be. But in terms of our jobs we can all see the silver lining in that particular cloud. And we won’t feel guilty about it, either. After all, it’s not like we can indict her anyway.
