Hillary's Stonewall

Some people didn't like what the voice did say
So I took the voice and I locked it away
--Russ Ballard

Chatter increasing that the Obama administration and DOJ are stonewalling FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton's email improprieties. This is to be expected as this administration, and any contemporary administration for that matter, is likely to do what it takes to remain above the law.

The interesting element in this case is the FBI. Some believe that there is a good chance that the agency is less susceptible to political expedience than others. If rule of law is suppressed by the federal government, is it plausible that the FBI goes rogue--perhaps to the point of taking its case directly to the American people?

The argument against the likelihood of taking a principled stand, of course, is that the FBI depends on the federal government for its resources and could be cut off if it publicly challenges the administration.
