    Ben Roberts: First of all, as to the story here, I cannot believe that anyone believes that Hillary Clinton lies less than Donald Trump. But you can twist data to fit whatever parameters suit you. (Not you, personally, but the people that made the graph. As far as the lack of prosecution of Hillary, yes, I watched her testimony, and the hearings with both Comey and Lynch. Lynch was useless, by the way. Comey, having had a lot of experience as a prosecutor, carefully parsed his words and answered most questions without really answering. But the facts he layed out, were very damning. The volume of transgressions alone should convince anyone that there was intent; however, intent is only required in this type of case if you CHOOSE to make it a requirement. Comey himself said that it was a practice of the Justice Department to only prosecute if they thought they could prove criminal intent…and they had only strayed from that policy once in o e hundred years. By choice. And they DID it. So, if you read the statute properly, you would understand the “intent” of the language was to prosecute gross negligence. When Congress wrote that law, they purposefully left out any language regarding intent.
