like not making it harder for certain groups of voters to actually vote.
If it was up to me, it would be harder for most people to vote. As it is large segments of the population have little confidence in the system. (It seems to vary from group to group depending on who wins). Confidence in the system in my mind is worth some inconvenience.

Dude, you believe voter fraud is not a problem yet you are the one who started us down this tangent when a Republican got caught. It is yet another example of accusing another person of exactly what the accuser are themselves guilty.
Dude. (Who above the age of 17 starts a sentence with that?)

You are not getting it. Is it willful? Or, are you as dense as Uranium?

You have long whined about voter fraud, including starting threads about it.

I was mocking you in that damn near every case involves one of your teammates.

many people don't have confidence in the system because we don't really have a true democracy, when a minority party can gain control of the government. voter suppression is a bigger threat than the myth of rampant voter fraud.

If your mission was to demonstrate hypocrisy on my part it would have been smart for you to denounce the Democrats convicted of voter fraud that I cited, but you did not. You're guilty of exactly what you accuse me of.

I denounce the singular Democrat you shared three separate stories about in Post #16,758.

Seriously, who shares the story of one man convicted of voter fraud, from three sources, and thinks of it as multiple examples of voter fraud?

For the record, and I believe I have said this before, I feel any case of voter fraud should be investigated and prosecuted, if warranted. Regardless of political party. Yes, that includes Democrats, Dog.

Too late.

And had highly classified documents on the private insecure server she used for her email.
Then the FBI needs to thoroughly investigate all evidence and spend however long it takes to discover the facts then recommend her for prosecution. LOCK HER UP!

Why wasn’t any of that done?

With only about 40% of the people who can legally vote actually doing so, and only by waiting in day-long lines, this seems to be the wrong way to take the system.

Unless of course, it's just one step on the way to eliminating voting at all, as your desired goal.

I don't know how many times this has been rehashed, but if it were prosecutable, it would have been. But unfortunately, the FBI did not see a level of criminal behavior that would bring about a conviction, and you should be good with that response, but here we are again.

Here is the director's conclusion. I hope this settles the matter once and for all.

"In our system, the prosecutors make the decisions about whether charges are appropriate based on evidence the FBI has helped collect. Although we don’t normally make public our recommendations to the prosecutors, we frequently make recommendations and engage in productive conversations with prosecutors about what resolution may be appropriate, given the evidence. In this case, given the importance of the matter, I think unusual transparency is in order.

Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past.

In looking back at our investigations into mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts. All the cases prosecuted involved some combination of: clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information; or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct; or indications of disloyalty to the United States; or efforts to obstruct justice. We do not see those things here.

To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now.

As a result, although the Department of Justice makes final decisions on matters like this, we are expressing to Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case.

I know there will be intense public debate in the wake of this recommendation, as there was throughout this investigation. What I can assure the American people is that this investigation was done competently, honestly, and independently. No outside influence of any kind was brought to bear.

I know there were many opinions expressed by people who were not part of the investigation—including people in government—but none of that mattered to us. Opinions are irrelevant, and they were all uninformed by insight into our investigation, because we did the investigation the right way. Only facts matter, and the FBI found them here in an entirely apolitical and professional way. I couldn’t be prouder to be part of this organization."
