An increasingly furious President Trump has taken to twitter this afternoon to express his outrage, in a way only the President can, over the thinly veiled double standard within the U.S. intelligence community and mainstream media over how they basically ignored the Hillary Clinton email scandal while endlessly pursuing his administration without being able to present a single shred of tangible evidence that any wrongdoing ever occurred.
"Why is that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russia are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?"
"Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, 'bleached' emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?"

Of course, he seems to have a point on this one. Last summer, we reported fairly extensively on the Hillary email scandal while it was virtually glossed over by the mainstream media.
And, like many people, we were astonished when FBI Director Comey made the unilateral assessment that, despite Hillary's "extreme carelessness," no "reasonable" prosecutor would bring charges against her.
Unlike the current "Russia probe" which has revealed precisely zero tangible evidence, the FBI's own reports from last summer revealed that Hillary and her staff intentionally destroyed official State Department emails despite confirming they were aware of the existence of a federal subpoena demanding the preservation of those emails (we covered it extensively here: The "Oh Shit" Moment: Hillary Wiped Her Server With BleachBit Despite Subpoena).
For the record Mr. Comey, destruction of evidence is actually a federal crime and it was actually admitted to in actual FBI testimony, but only after you, Mr. Comey, decided to pass out immunity deals to Hillary's staff "like candy" (see: "FBI Is Handing Out Deals Like Candy" - Cheryl Mills And 2 Other Clinton Aides Get Immunity).
And, even though Comey couldn't seem to find "intent" in Hillary's destruction of federal property, as we pointed out last September, one lone internet sleuth was able to find it for him with a couple of simple internet searches (see "Dear FBI, This Is Intent: Hillary's "Oh Shit" Guy Sought Reddit Advice On How To "Strip VIP's Emails")...which does make you wonder just how hard he tried?
Of course, until someone within the Trump administration or Republican Party smartens up and calls for the appointment of a 'Special Counsel' to look into Hillary's email scandal, something that should have been done long ago, and not for retaliatory reasons but simply due to Comey's and AG Lynch's blatant mishandling of the investigation (a point which Deputy AG Rosenstein obviously agreed with), the Democrats have no reason to calm their mass hysteria. Then, and only then, do we suspect that Hillary might just be able to 'convince' her party to exercise some form of reasonable judgement.
