The U.S. Department of Justice is wrapping up its years-long examination into alleged corruption involving Hillary Rodham Clinton, her work for the Clinton Foundation, with the State Department and God knows what else.
It has come up empty. Nothing of consequence. It’s over, man!
Imagine that, if you can.
Donald Trump has been yammering incessantly about Hillary Clinton since before he ran against her for president in 2016. He defeated her in that campaign. He hasn’t stopped bringing her name to our attention.
The end of the investigation, under normal circumstances and involving normal politicians, ought to spell the end of “Lock her up!” chants at Trump rallies. Something tells me we are not likely to be free of that tiresome, idiotic and borderline defamatory rallying cry.
After all, we’re talking about Donald Trump, the man who needs a foil against whom he can campaign.
However, the Justice Department’s conclusion that it came up empty is good enough for me.
