So the #IGREPORT proves what?

1. The FBI was right to decide not to charge Hillary with a crime.
2. That decision wasn't motivated by political bias or improper considerations.
3. James Comey made mistakes.
4. Those mistakes helped Trump win.

Sounds like Hillary got screwed.

Ex-GOP Congressman Hopes 'Cowards At CNN, MSNBC' Are Beheaded
Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) said on Wednesday he hoped that staffers at news outlets like CNN and MSNBC would face beheadings for their refusals to air cartoons published by the satirical French newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

Walsh, who now works as a conservative radio host, made the comments on Twitter in light of reports that numerous media outlets were refusing to publish Charlie Hebdo's depictions of the Muslim prophet Muhammad in the wake of terror attacks at at the newspaper's Paris office.

Sundance 2013: The Eagles documentary has landed (at Showtime) -
To hear members of the iconic rock group the Eagles tell it, the choice to break almost four decades of near total media silence and put out a revealing rockumentary that traces their humble beginnings through superstardom to spectacular in-fighting to the band’s inevitable 1980 bust-up came down to a simple proposition.

“It was time to get it down if we were going to do it,” said the Eagles’ notoriously reticent drummer-singer, Don Henley. “It could come to a screeching halt tomorrow. We thought it was time.”

“The History of the Eagles Part I” is making its world premiere at Sundance Saturday night and the group held a news conference several hours before to announce that the film -- produced by Oscar-winning documentarian Alex Gibney and directed by longtime documentary editor Alison Eliwood -- has been acquired by Showtime, which will begin airing and streaming it on demand Feb. 15. “History of the Eagles Part 2” will premiere on the network the following day.

Rep. Joe Walsh on “female, wounded veteran”: “Let’s move on. What else has she done?”
Whether he’s refusing to pay his child support so he can afford to fund his campaign and go on luxury vacations, lying about not being able to afford it, calling President Obama a liar, or yelling at constituents, Illinois congressman and Tea Party darling Joe Walsh knows how to keep it classy. So, I shouldn’t be surprised by his most recent disgusting comments about Tammy Duckworth, who is running against him in Illinois’s 8th congressional district. Duckworth served as Assistant Operations Officer and a Black Hawk helicopter pilot in Iraq. After her helicopter was ambushed and hit by a grenade, she successfully landed the helicopter, but lost her legs and her right arm in the blast.

In an interview with Politico, Walsh reflected on Duckworth’s achievements:

“I have so much respect for what she did in the fact that she sacrificed her body for this country,” said Walsh, simultaneously lowering his voice as he leaned forward before pausing for dramatic effect. “Ehhh. Now let’s move on.What else has she done? Female, wounded veteran … ehhh,” he continued. “She is nothing more than a handpicked Washington bureaucrat. David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel just picked her up and dropped her into this district.”

Joe really knows how to pay his respects! What is more respectful than trivializing a person’s gender, and traumatic injuries? Oh, I know: dismissing the person as worthless. But before we “eh, move on,” let’s review what else Duckworth has done.

After becoming a “wounded veteran,” Duckworth served as the Assistant Secretary for Public and Intergovernmental Affairs in the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
Before that, she was the director of the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs.
Duckworth declined her Army medical retirement and continues her service in the National Guard
and has written on the health risks of environmental radon and lung cancer.
Thanks to her advocacy for veterans and health care, Duckworth won the Hubert H. Humphrey Civil Rights Award,
was named the 2008 Disabled Veteran of the Year by the Disabled American Veterans,
was selected by Candidate Obama to deliver the presidential campaign’s key address on Veterans’ rights at the Democratic National Convention,
received an American Veterans (AMVETS) Silver Helmet award
and The George Washington University’s Colin Powell Public Service Award.
Vote Vets has released a press release which states “New Low: Deadbeat Congressman Joe Walsh Insults Veterans’ Sacrifice.” Iraq War Veteran and Chairman of PAC Jon Soltz stated,

“Just when you think Congressman Joe Walsh couldn’t sink any lower, he insults the service and sacrifice of our Veterans, particularly one like Tammy who lost her limbs in the line of duty. Congressman Walsh owes Tammy Duckworth and all Veterans an apology for his outrageous disrespect for their service…. But it’s not just that. If you think working for America’s veterans at the VA both in Washington and Illinois is nothing, if you think working to improve the economic lives of veterans is nothing, then Joe Walsh’s record is below nothing. He represents the do-nothing, obstructionist, extreme Tea Party wing of the GOP, not the values that Tammy stood up for.”

And writer Carol Felsenthal was right on the money when she wrote of Walsh’s statements, “the last line, especially, with its image of the legless Duckworth being dropped from the air “into [the] district” struck me as beyond tasteless.”

Deadbeat Rep. Joe Walsh, Who Owes $100k In Child Support, Receives 'Pro-Family' Award From Family Research Council | ThinkProgress
In July, the press learned that Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), a Tea Party freshman in Congress, owed $117,000 in unpaid child support to his ex-wife. Walsh, despite earning a hefty salary as a member of Congress, has continued to refuse to pay his ex-wife to support his children. Now, it appears, an influential Christian right lobbying group is lending some support to the deadbeat congressman.

The Sun-Times reports that the Family Research Council, a social conservative advocacy nonprofit headed by CNN pundit Tony Perkins, has awarded Walsh a 100 percent rating as a “True Blue” member of Congress. The FRC said it gave the honor to Walsh because of his “unwavering support of the family”:
