Which is worse: Incompetence or intentional effort to upset a democratic election?

Inspector General Michael Horowitz: “On the one hand, gross incompetence, negligence? On the other hand, intentionality? And where in between? We weren’t in a position, with the evidence we had, to make that conclusion, but I’m not ruling it out.”  (ABCNews)
 
This is obviously sad. Both are bad. The hand-picked inspectors by the top management of the FBI were either incompetent or they were intentionally trying to affect the outcome of their investigation in one direction.
 
If they were incompetent than why were they hand-picked by the FBI management to run this investigation? Does that mean the FBI management is incompetent? If they were incompetent on this, the most serious investigation that the FBI has conducted in probably a decade (the investigation of members of the out-of-power party’s nominee for POTUS), then do we need to go back to every other investigation that these hand-picked professionals have conducted to see where else they have been negligent or incompetent?
 
If they were intentional, then they should be charged with treason for trying to use the police state powers to affect the out-of-power party’s candidate for POTUS. That is a treasonous act similar to the tactics of a fascist state. That is the same as saying that Obama was a fascist and I doubt that many Americans want to say that.

Jim Comey’s Clinton Standard

The most revealing words in FBI Director James Comey’s statement Tuesday explaining his decision not to recommend prosecuting Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information were these: “This is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions.”

So there it is for everyone to understand: One standard exists for a Democratic candidate for President and another for the average citizen. No wonder so many voters think Washington is rigged for the powerful.
