Shortly before the 2016 election, then FBI Director James Comey said of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email & server, deleted emails, smashed mobile devices, etc., that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” As it turns out, it’s possible Comey was somewhat empathetic to the Dem nominee that year:

From the NY Post:
Fired FBI chief James Comey used his private Gmail account hundreds of times to conduct government business — and at least seven of those messages were deemed so sensitive by the Justice Department that they declined to release them.
The former top G-man repeatedly claimed he only used his private account for “incidental” purposes and never for anything that was classified — and that appears to be true.
But Justice acknowledged in response to a Freedom of Information request that Comey and his chief of staff discussed government business on about 1,200 pages of messages, 156 of which were obtained by The Post.
Well isn’t that interesting…
No wonder he didn't think stuff like that should be prosecuted…

Perhaps Comey will respond to the above report on Twitter with the appropriate quote from a historical figure.
Oh Lordy, Comey. I wonder what the new AG is going to think about this. https://t.co/k1rmuZZtmk

Will “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case” apply?
