Under duress, the Secretary of State has finally turned over her private email server to the FBI.  Her apparent serious violation of national security laws should certainly be investigated – but in an executive branch in which the administration of justice is so regularly harnessed to political ends, why does the FBI bother?

People will say “This shows that the system is working.”  No, the system is not working.  What one must remember is that the Clinton and Obama machines despise each other.   The Secretary had to be accommodated for a while, but now that the Vice President is expected to run, she has outlived her usefulness.  The wolves are finally ready to bring down the buffalo.
