WASHINGTON (AP) — FBI Director James Comey says he did not hold Hillary Clinton to a different standard when he recommended no charges over her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

Comey is telling a House committee that the FBI tries very hard to apply the same standard “whether you are rich or poor, white or black, old or young, famous or not known at all.”

Comey told the panel that Clinton did email classified material and used multiple devices during her four years as secretary of state, contradicting her public statements.

Republicans are pointing out that a rank-and-file government worker who used an unclassified email system to conduct classified government business would have been charged with a crime.

    Remarkably, he is telling the truth. He demands the same level of bribery from anyone looking to escape prosecution for being a treasonous criminal. As long as he holds everyone to that standard, then he isn’t lying.

    That doesn’t make him not part of the criminal enterprise though. He still is that.

    By Comey’s own admission, Hillary did, in fact, commit perjury by lying under oath in her testimony. Under federal law, that’s a felony, not a resume enhancement.
