Fiery McCain: 'It's Scary ... Hillary Can Do Whatever She Wants and Get Away With It'
Bret Baier and the Outnumbered co-hosts reacted this afternoon to FBI Director James Comey's announcement that he will not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.
The Special Report anchor noted that despite the fact that Clinton will not face criminal charges, Comey made a damaging series of statements about how she handled classified information.
Baier said Comey "destroyed" Clinton's past statements about her use of the private email server, particularly that she never sent or received anything "marked classified."
"Politically, I don't think this is over as far as it being a problem," said Baier.
He said it's "interesting" that Comey made no mention of a separate investigation into the Clinton Foundation and said he'll be looking into whether that investigation is still in play.
Meghan McCain said Comey's recommendation reinforces the notion that the Clintons play by a different set of rules. She said that Americans, specifically millennials, are already "so jaded" about the political process.
McCain said many disenchanted Americans will see this as another example of a powerful person doing "a lot of illegal stuff" and escaping punishment.
She said Donald Trump is right to juxtapose today's announcement against the indictment of Gen. David Petraeus for mishandling classified information.
"If you're a conservative, if you're a general, if you're someone who's not in line with the Obama administration, you'll go to jail or lose your job, 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 gonna get away with it."
