Noted conservative blogger Erick Erickson believes the FBI would have recommended Hillary Clinton be indicted for using a private email server for government business — if she had been a man.
Writing on his blog site The Resurgent,
Erickson, who hosts "Atlanta's Evening News with Erick Erickson" on WSB-AM Radio,
"It is because she is a female with the last name Clinton. Any one of you reading this right now would have been indicted.
"We know this because [former CIA director] David Petraeus was indicted for less. He had an affair and, as part of careless whispers, mentioned classified information to his mistress."
Erickson adds while Comey said there appeared to be no "intent" to commit a crime, "the law regarding the handling of classified materials does not have an 'intent' standard."
"There's only one thing left to happen now — Donald Trump will say something ridiculous to take the attention away from Hillary Clinton's clearly criminal wrong doing that is being shielded by the Obama administration," Erickson predicts.
