A frustrating cycle

It doesn't seem to matter. We can read things like this:
There was panic in Camp Clinton when President Obama falsely told the public he had not known about then-Secretary Hillary Clinton’s use of private e-mail until he heard about it “through news reports.” In reality, Obama and Clinton exchanged at least 18 e-mails through Clinton’s private account and homebrew server system. And we now know, based on investigative reports released by the FBI, that Obama used a pseudonym in at least some of his e-mails with Clinton. Moreover, as I noted in a column ten days ago, top advisers to Obama and Clinton flagged the Obama–Clinton e-mails problem before Obama issued his false denial of knowledge.
The "I" in this case is Andrew McCarthy, who writes for National Review. You might be able to read about these details in the Star Tribune, but you'll have to search for it.

But it doesn't matter. We know what the email says:

Must protect Precious -- both of them

We know this is Watergate-level stuff. We know that Team Clinton wiped out 30,000+ emails from her server, even though all the email was under congressional subpoena. Meanwhile, the Leader of the Free World is out there saying this -- for context, the guy in question is Darrell Issa, who has tried to bring Obama's machinations to light:
Here's a guy who called my administration perhaps the most corrupt in history -- despite the fact that actually we have not had a major scandal in my administration -- that, when Trump was suggesting that I wasn’t even born here, said, well, I don’t know, was not sure.  We can pull up the quotes. 
Our leaders lie to our faces. It happens every day. And there are no repercussions at all. The reporters look at these scoundrels like this group of admirers awaiting our approaching Queen:

The election will take place in less than two weeks. I expect the Tiger Beat-level coverage of all Democrats to continue beyond the election cycle. It's not going to end well, folks.

In 1972 there was plenty of talk and questions being asked about Watergate leading up to the presidential election. It wasn't enough to prevent Richard Nixon from delivering a landslide beat-down of George McGovern. Watergate, however, did not disappear the day after the election and Nixon ultimately did not complete his term.

Hillary wants to make history. It would certainly be historic if she and Bill were both impeached.

The thing that is just incredible is that I'm not aware of any prominent Democrat who has come out and said what many Republicans said as the evidence came out about Watergate--we're not going to protect you, Hilliary.

And really, praise God for WikiLeaks--they are showing us that we really need to do what we can to send the entire Obama team to jail. The most interesting thing to me about the emails to me is how many people were doing government business on gmail; it's time to put some people in prison for failing to preserve government records. The rot is deep.

You know, what would be really fun would be if WikiLeaks had information indicating that Clinton and Trump were working together to defraud the electorate. What do you do then? This whole thing stinks from a good government perspective, but it does have some entertainment value.
