At Fox News, Hillary Clinton’s gender means that her husband gets credit even when the FBI finds that she’s not criminally liable for using her personal email server.
Fox News host Meghan McCain reacted to the news that FBI Director James Comey had refused to recommended an indictment of Clinton by calling it a “sad day for Democracy.”
“People are so jaded right now,” McCain opined. “Especially young millennials after the end of Bernie Sanders’ campaign. And it’s hard enough to sell why young people should be involved in politics and feel inspired when if you have enough money, if you’re powerful enough, if you have the right husband, you can do a lot of illegal stuff and you’re not going to get charged.”
The Fox News host asserted that General David Petraeus was charged for leaking classified documents because he was a conservative Republican who was “not in line with the Obama administration.”
“You’ll go to jail or you’ll lose your job,” she complained. “[But] if you’re Hillary Clinton — she can do whatever she wants! That’s what’s scary about this. She can do literally whatever she wants and she’s going to get away with it.”

During an interview on Fox News, Smith noted that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules due to the constant interruptions at the first debate between Biden and Trump.
"At any point when you were watching the debate, did you wish that perhaps President Trump didn't jump in there as much as he did?" Smith wondered.
Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report
According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.
The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
