The most important event of the week involved neither the FBI or Billy Bush. The Bundy case was ended with a stunning unanimous "Not Guilty" verdict. It is important to remember that verdicts are rendered as to the charges and not necessarily the realities. The results can be summed up like this:
A militant, armed militia group took over a Federal Game Land, occupied it for an extended period of time, made it dangerous for the workers to go to their jobs and recruited hundreds of armed civilians from across the country to come help them - but committed no crime and were merely exercising their Constitutional rights..
Americans, on both sides of the aisle have deeply twisted the concepts of "rights" and "privileges." Rights cannot be revoked but still carry consequences when acted out. Privileges are granted and revoked in regular process. Essentially, a militant group could now over take a Federal building and have precedent as to its legality. Understandably, the charge of "Conspiracy" played directly into the verdict and the conspiratorial Pynchon mindset of the public. The defendants were known to be followers of fringe fanatic groups such as The Oath Keepers, The Tenther Movement and The Praetorian Guards.
Trump's rhetoric and Clinton's resume play into the militant response "rights" narrative. These groups and their views will be emboldened not just by the jury verdict but by both/either a Trump victory or defeat. Emotion precedes the end of reason.
As the great Sen. Warren Rudman said of Ollie North's Iran/Contra scheming, "The Constitution gives the American people the right to be wrong about things." And that right has consequences.
