A special prosecutor for Hillary Clinton? Daily Bullshit, July 1, 2016

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton hasn’t even been elected to the presidency and already, there may soon—if Republicans have their way—be a special prosecutor investigating her.[1] As things stand, it seems to me that Attorney General Loretta Lynch has, by promising to accept the recommendations of career prosecutors and the FBI on whether or not to prosecute,[2] diverted the political pressure onto those folks. Maybe their shoulders are broad. Maybe this isn’t really a problem. But their’s is not a position I envy in this situation.

Brexit

Tories have only themselves to blame for the Brexit outcome. But this is a message that applies more broadly to those who advocate so-called “free” markets.[3]
