And knowing this, the FBI/police/etc will often use such grants of immunity to induce people to tell them everything and not hold anything back. After all, if they're not interested in prosecuting some low-ranking peon, why not?
"Clinton screwed up on email and arguably Benghazi"
I'm sorry -- but there is a very long history of her "screw ups and lies". Whitewater ring a bell? I don't want to list them all out as I dont want to type a "mile long" worth of dirt.
Oh, but please do - because it's not so much a "mile long list" of dirt, so much as it is a mile long list of overhyped nothingburgers that Republicans repeatedly tried to turn into major scandals in an ongoing effort to destroy the Clintons politically. About the only respite from it was when Hillary was seen as a rival to Obama after she lost the primary to him in 2008. Once she became part of his cabinet though, it was "game on" again.
It's actually somewhat more telling that despite all the relentless scrutiny, investigating, and endless parade of hearings, over 24 years now, there still has yet to be a single indictment or criminal charge against her. Either she's the canniest most effective schemer ever (yet simultaneously incompetent enough for all the rest of these minor screwups), or there's really not a lot to any of it.
We all know very well that the democratic process is lost to us - as anyone who voted for Bernie Sanders found out.
I voted for Sanders, and I'm sorry, your citation doesn't support what you claim. If anything, I would argue that Sanders's success proves it is possible to achieve change democratically, even if it won't be as easy as some hoped. Success? Yes, he did far better than anyone imagined he would, and he forced Clinton to address a number of his and his supporters' policies and priorities. Did we get everything we wanted? Of course not, but that's not how the real world works. Politics is almost never about sudden magic revolutionary things happening, it's slow and incremental - and when the sudden magic happens it doesn't come out of thin air, it comes because people spent a long hard time working on it, and put in blood, sweat, and tears, year after year.
It's the same sort of thinking that led to people being disappointed in Obama, as if he was going to sweep in and fix everything. That's not how it works. You build, and you push. Want more people like Sanders in office? Work to elect them, at all levels of government, not just the Presidency. Don't like politicians like Clinton? Then organize against and vote against them in the primary. Even if you don't beat them, most politicians are astute enough that they're going to shift their policies to cover intra-party blocs. Look at what happened to the Republicans with the Tea Party - there's no moderates left in Congress, and any that are basically terrified of being primary'd out, so they support all the ultraconservative positions.
And in the end, if your guy doesn't win, don't take your ball and go home - you vote for Clinton even if you don't like her, because 80% is better than 20% or 0%. We can complain that the system is bad (it is, in my opinion), but that doesn't change what the rules of the game are right now. We can also work to change those rules even while we continue to play by them.
HOST SYSTEM RESPONDING, PROBABLY UP...
