Lewyn Addresses America

A little politics, a little urbanism- I also blog 100 percent on urbanism at https://www.planetizen.com/user/63 and http://www.cnu.org/blog/194

It seems to me that the FBI Director’s report on Hillary Clinton’s emails was the best possible outcome for the Republican Party.

If he had recommended indictment (assuming that the Justice Department followed his recommendation) the Democrats probably would have found a better nominee.

If he had condoned Secretary Clinton’s conduct, the email scandal would disappear, and Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump would grow.

But by condemning her conduct, the FBI Director has created a “worst of both worlds” situation for the Democrats- the email scandal won’t harm Clinton enough to justify ¬†nominating someone else, and yet will continue to get publicity, thus reducing or eliminating her lead over Donald Trump.
