Comey Selecting The Next President?

Scott Adams of Dilbert is suggesting that Comey did the honorable thing by not calling for an indictment of Hillary Clinton because such an action would cost her the election and he would be blamed for the election of Donald Trump. He says that Comey says:
1. Hillary Clinton is 100% guilty of crimes of negligence.
2. The FBI recommends dropping the case.
From a legal standpoint, that’s absurd. And that’s how the media seems to be reacting. The folks who support Clinton are sheepishly relieved and keeping their heads down. But the anti-Clinton people think the government is totally broken and the system is rigged. That’s an enormous credibility problem.
But what was the alternative?
The alternative was the head of the FBI deciding for the people of the United States who would be their next president. A criminal indictment against Clinton probably would have cost her the election.
This is absurd. Neither convention has happened yet and the Dems have other candidates in the wings who can be put forward on little or no notice who are just as plausible as the Hildebeast. Joe Biden for example could put aside his court jesters hat and team with Fauxcahontis Warren. He is after all arguably less corrupt and more competent than Hill. Pretty much anyone the Dems select would be a stronger candidate than Hill.

If Comey was interested in maintaining the governments credibility, he wouldn't have given the justice departments blessing to such an obvious crook. OTOH maybe he is trying to elect Trump.

Comey said what he said because he was told if you don't recommend that Clinton not be prosecuted or your ex wife will swear out an affidavit that you diddled their children in front of her.
Hey! It explains things better than what some cartoonist said.
