The Democrats asked for this: Hillary and Her Enablers Have Made Their Bed, and Are Now Lying In It

The Democrats asked for this: Hillary and Her Enablers Have Made Their Bed, and Are Now Lying In It, by Rich Lowry.

[T]he only reason that Comey figures in the election at all is that Democrats knowingly nominated someone under FBI investigation. …

Clinton effectively locked up the nomination in June and wasn’t cleared of criminal wrongdoing by the FBI until July. What if she had been indicted? Would Democrats have run her anyway? Would they have substituted in a 74-year-old socialist who had lost the nomination battle, or someone else who hadn’t even run? Any of these circumstances would have been unprecedented, but Democrats risked it.

They did it, in part, because they could never bring themselves to fully acknowledge the seriousness of the e-mail scandal and, relatedly, the ethical miasma around the Clinton Foundation. They considered it all another desperate trick of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy.
