The anarchist position is vindicated once again.

FBI Director Comey announced the findings of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server earlier today. While he won’t be recommending criminal charges against Clinton, he did say this:
Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.
It has been said many times already, but it bears repeating that almost anyone else in or around the government that mishandled classified information in this way would not be let off the hook so easily. There are clearly two standards of conduct for high-ranking officials and everyone else, and because Clinton is one of the former she is able to get away with behavior that would be career-ending for almost anyone else.
