The FBI announcement that it is looking afresh at Hillary Clinton’s emails means that Democrats should tell their presidential nominee to step down and allow her running mate Sen. Tim Kaine to take her place, Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass writes.

Kass contends that Donald Trump is merely a symptom of the breaking down of American politics, but that Hillary and Bill Clinton are both the cause and effect.

He said that Clinton would agree to step down if the interests of the nation were more important to her than power, but lamented that for the Democratic nominee "it has always been about power, about the Clinton Restoration and protecting fortunes already made by selling nothing but political influence."

Kass cynically suggested that now would be the time to leak another Trump video, so that "her allies in media can talk about misogyny and sexual politics and the headlines can be all about Trump as the boor he is and Hillary as champion of female victims, which she has never been."

He lamented the low level of the current candidates and said that "Clinton has clearly disqualified herself from ever coming near classified information again. If she were a young person straight out of grad school hoping to land a government job, Hillary Clinton would be laughed out of Washington with her record. She’d never be hired."

Kass said that "during this presidential campaign, Americans were confronted with a two-tiered system of federal justice: one for standards for the Clintons and one for the peasants,” and that it is up to the people to keep her out of public office.

Political analyst Doug Schoen, a long-time Democratic supporter who has worked on the campaigns of many candidates in the party, said on Fox News Channel on Sunday that he will no longer back Hillary Clinton for president.

Schoen said he is "deeply concerned that we will have a constitutional crisis if she’s elected," explaining this would mean a president-elect would be under investigation, because this probe will go on for many months.

He said that "under these circumstances, I am actively reassessing my support … I want to learn more this week ... but as of today, I am not a supporter of the secretary of state for the nation’s highest office."
