Mutiny At The FBI: Comey Clears Clinton Despite Mounting Evidence

FBI Director James Comey has cleared Clinton of all wrong doing over her illegal activities involving classified emails, despite the fact that agents say they have enough evidence to indict her. Comey’s announcement on Sunday that the FBI would not seek to prosecute Hillary Clinton will be a bitter blow to multiple officials at the agency who say they had adequate evidence, including “secret recordings of a suspect talking about the Clinton Foundation,” that could have led to a Hillary Clinton prosecution.

*“Change and Renewal”* by Paulo Coelho “When winter arrives, the trees must sigh in sadness as they see their leaves falling. They say: ‘We will never be like we were before.’ Of course. Or still, what is the meaning of renewing oneself? The next leaves will have their own nature, they pertain to a new summer that approaches and which will never be like the one that passed. Living means changing– and the seasons repeat these lessons to us every year. Changing means going through a period of depression: we still don’t know the new and we have to forget everything we used to know. Bu... more »
