Untouchables: Hillary & Wall Street

FBI Director James Comey broke the news that Hillary Clinton acted contrary to U.S. laws but will face no accountability.

The FBI is part of the U.S. Department of Justice.  That's the "Just Us" Department that turned their gaze away from widespread fraud that caused the 2008 Financial Crisis.  Apparently "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring such a case as no Wall Street executives were charged.  Citizen Hillary received millions in Wall Street speaking fees after stepping down as Secretary of State. 

In late 2007 Hillary Clinton gave banks free passes for abandoning due diligence in packaging/selling loans as AAA rated.  President Obama's "Just Us" Department followed Hillary's lead since his 2009 inauguration.  Attorney General Eric Holder repeatedly allowed Wall Street firms to settle with fines for breaking the law.  Executives used those fines as tax deductions, helping boost their incentive compensation.  That leaves more money to donate to candidates.  Get the picture.
