Hillary Clinton has committed several crimes that would land any other person in prison. The corruption in DC runs so deep, they have bent rules to prevent her from going to jail.

Ok. So not to state the obvious, but Hillary Clinton clearly does not belong in prison. What possible evidence do you have to support this other than your apparent 'moral opinion'?

The truth is that haters, need to get over it. Hillary Clinton isn't going to jail over a bunch of emails.

The anti-Hillary crowd has been poking us with that stick during her entire presidential campaign, casting doubt on her viability, planting innuendo about her character and working nonstop to make us think that they somehow knew something the rest of us didn't. Investigators announced that Clinton did nothing criminally wrong by using her personal email account while handling classified information as secretary of state. It removed a potentially damaging legal barrier from the campaign trail and cleared a pile of rubbish from her path to the White House. And it happened just in the nick of time.

This isn't necessarily the gift that everyone had hoped for. And it didn't come wrapped in a tidy, cheerful package. It fact, it was handed over to us in a rather messy heap. No one expects every American to be excited about it. But over time, many of us likely will come to appreciate it.

The email scandal was supposed to be the smoking gun in the Republicans' two-year Benghazi probe. As it turned out, the conspiracy theories cracked wide open under the microscope and exposed the Benghazi inquest for exactly what it was " an $8 million taxpayer-funded Republican campaign to derail Clinton's presidential prospects.

As hard as they tried, congressional Republicans couldn't come up with a strand of proof that Clinton had been derelict in her duties as secretary of state concerning the 2012 attacks in Libya that killed four Americans. There was nothing in their 800-page report issued that proved she engaged in professional misconduct.

Still, the Republican smear campaign caused major collateral damage, most notably among Democrats. Some in her own party bought into Trump's "crooked Hillary" hype and have done their fair share of spreading the venom.

So far, former Bernie Sanders supporters can't seem to muster any enthusiasm for Clinton, the person most likely to be at the top of the Democratic ticket in November. And by refusing to throw his own support behind the presumptive nominee, Sanders, in effect, is telling them that it's OK.

Sorry, Republicans, but emails didn't end Hillary Clinton or put her in jail, and all for the right reasons.

People are convinced that Clinton manipulated primary votes, enticed the media to underreport Sanders' widespread support among constituents and only cares about minorities and issues such as poverty, education and crime when it's politically expedient.

This did not happen, and despite her faults, Clinton clearly does not belong in prison.
