Hillary is being sued by two Benghazi families

This is a direct result of FBI director Comey's entitlement to say SOMETHING negative about a woman whose practices had not broken any laws, but who still needed to be put in her place. Comey broke with standard procedure when he took the opportunity to subjectively decide that Clinton was "extremely careless" in handling emails.

Bob Somerby of the Daily Howler wrote a take down yesterday of the fact checkers of the email story.* Today, this lawsuit is being called "the ultimate WTF lawsuit".

It's time for the media to start questioning Comey's judgement and motives in his unprecedented public vilification of Hillary Clinton based, not on objective legal standards, but on his personal dislike of the subject of his investigation.


*The media's ongoing mishandling of the email story should be called out in every venue possible. I wrote an OP concerning Bob Somersby's ongoing analysis of the fact checker's failures in being accurate and fair about the email story. The thread was almost immediately removed for "peddling right wing talking points".

I'm still upset over that removal. Bob is a Democratic, left leaning critic of the liberal media. Here's what Paul Krugman had to say about the blog he has been writing since 1998:

"A message to my fellow journalists: check out media watch sites like campaigndesk.org, mediamatters.org and dailyhowler.com. It's good to see ourselves as others see us. I've been finding The Daily Howler's concept of a media "script", a story line that shapes coverage, often in the teeth of the evidence, particularly helpful in understanding cable news."

5. They are represented by Larry Klayman,

probably the second-worst lawyer in the universe after Orly Tait. Why that guy hasn't been disbarred yet is a mystery.

6. Simply ridiculous and a waste of time. Sue Oliver North for

trading missiles to Iran for hostages. The very missiles terrorists used to attack American troops and allies

Is Klayman also going after them? I hope he is that stupid.

9. I guess DU should sue Comey.

Makes as much sense as these two lawsuits.
