The president and congress have enough problems on their hands, Trump will have his hands full getting his cabinet appointments approved and his agenda in the first 100 days. Does any rational person think that is a good idea to start this fight all over again.

More lies.

I pointed out the lie.

Comey admitted it was a violation, that she was extremely careless.

Comey said she did not "intend" to break the law.

Intent is not a component of the law, gross negligence is.

Therefore, she broke the law and Comey refused to charge her for no valid reason.

You can keep lying, but it won't change the facts. The FBI and AG failed their charge of oath and duties, they obstructed justice.

Comey determined that her extreme carelessness did not rise to the level of gross negligence. His recommendation was based on that assessment. While you may fervently believe that the FBI and AG failed their charge, you have no foundation. Your opinion doesn't trump Comey's opinion. Comey's opinion, based on much more knowledge than you possess, and based on much more experience than you possess, trumps your opinion.

You are right , it does not .
We will see if this is some kind of
ruse to make Trump look big and
then just let his "machinery" go after her.
He is not known for telling the truth about much
so we will see.

He should appoint a special prosecutor and allow the FBI and DOJ to do their jobs. Place it in the hands of those should impartiality investigate, and leave it to them. He should instruct them to have no communication with the WH until the final recommendation is ready.

Her extreme carelessness is a crime, and Comey essentially admitted it. He does not have the power to be judge and dismiss it.
