We're just now learning that the FBI/Justice Department, whoever, gave immunity to a number of the high-level players in the Clinton email scandal.  Really!  They gave immunity to the very players they were investigating.
In a stunning Friday (isn't it always?) revelation, we found out that yet another key figure from Hillary Clinton's "rat pack" -- her former chief-of-staff Cheryl Mills - was given immunity in the email server investigation.
As Ed Morrissey points out, that makes "at least five" -- who knows how many there really are -- who have received this treatment.  So far that's techies Bryan Pagliano and Paul Combetta (more of him in a moment), John Bentel of the Office of Information Resources Management, and Heather Samuelson, an aide to Mrs. Clinton.
What the hell?  No wonder Comey couldn't make a case.  I've been involved in lots of investigations, and you put the word out.  One person gets immunity.  The first one to the door of the DA's office gets a pass.  Every one else goes to jail.

If you can't put the big player in jail, for whatever reason, you put all the smaller players in jail.  That's the way it works.  I've never seen an investigation where five people, all culpable, got immunity.  That's unheard of.  That's malfeasance.

It's as if Comey is in cahoots with them.  I can't imagine what he was thinking.  One person, one, person, as low as you can go, gets immunity.  The rest go to jail.  That's the way it works.  You don't give everyone immunity.

It sounds like Comey has irreparably damaged the reputation of the FBI.  He deserves to be charged with malfeasance.

For those of you who know me, I'm having a Red Curtain of Blood moment.  Having trouble breathing.  Can barely finish this post.  The incompetence, malfeasance, and cowardice of Comey is staggering.  No wonder he couldn't make a case.  He gave everyone immunity.  And, to compound the malfeasance, he didn't make the immunized testimony public.  We're still left to wonder just what crimes the FBI/Justice Department covered up?

I'll finish with another quote from Roger Simon's article.
We live under a dictatorship of the moral narcissist bourgeoisie. They think they know more than we do and can do anything they wish. Actually, they know little and could care less.  All they want is power and will cling to at it any cost, even the truth and basic morality.  And we are their victims.
The FBI has become an accomplice to Hillary's criminal episode.  By granting immunity to five of the most culpable players, they have demonstrated that they incapable of rooting out corruption in our political processes, incapable of protecting our national secrets, and incapable of tooting out terrorists in our midst.  So, the question must be asked; Just exactly what is the FBI good for?

I'm having trouble coming up with a decent answer.

As you know, the FBI doesn't grant immunity, the AUSA does. So the malfeasance is on the part of the DOJ.
This tends to confirm my theory that the fix was in and Comey, knowing the FBI was wasting its time, chose to drop its investigation and lay out his case in public, first in his press conference, then in front of Congress. After all, if he recommended indictment, the DOJ refused, and she became President, what would happen to the FBI? She's not known for her forgiveness.

THe fix was in, that is the ONLY thing I can come up with!

I think Comey has said too much to reasonably expect to dodge vindictiveness if she becomes President.

I disagree with Mr. Simon only in that he says that they could care less. That implies a degree of caring. I'm pretty sure they couldn't care less, because they don't care at all. What does it matter to them? Consequences are for peasants.
