GOP preps tough perjury case against Clinton
Fuck them. And prosecute any of them who leak the contents of these emails.
GOP lawmakers have claimed that the Democratic presidential nominee broke the law by lying under oath about her private email setup during her marathon appearance in October.
Next month, Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee plan to make the issue a central part of a hearing with senior officials from the FBI, a committee aide said on Thursday. Legally, the GOP faces a tough case. Politically, however, raising the perjury allegations would be a way to keep the issue of Clintons truthfulness in the public eye throughout the fall as she battles Republican nominee for the White House.
Proving that someone committed perjury means overcoming a high hurdle: that the person knowingly told a falsehood under oath.
Convincing lawyers at the Department of Justice to take the case would also be difficult because prosecutors would have to prove that what the former secretary of State said during the 11-hour hearing was directly at odds with the truth.
There is no case, said Stephen Ryan, a former federal prosecutor and general counsel for the Democratic-run Senate Government Affairs Committee, bluntly.
Even if you tried to step back from the politically-laden nature that this was the Democratic presidential nominee and you look at it, theres no way the Department of Justice would touch a case like that.
To gerrymander the way the Republicans did it, with narrow margins optimizing the number of districts they could gerrymander, placed them at high risk in wave elections while placing no risk on the incumbent Dem candidates

Americans may loath Congress but they like their own reps. I'll be damned happy if dems win 10 seats in the House on November 8.
All for a publicity stunt aimed at smearing their opponent.
