But Hillary is an honourable woman

FBI Director James B. Comey, Jr., must know his Shakespeare because he seems to be playing the role of Mark Antony in Julius Caesar.

Act 3, Scene 2: Federal Bureau of Investigation, Press Room

Enter FBI Director James B. Comey, Jr., stage left

Second Citizen:

Peace! let us hear what FBI Director Comey can say.

FBI Director Comey:

You gentle Americans,--


Peace, ho! let us hear him.

FBI Director Comey:

Friends, Americans, countrymen, lend me your ears;

I come to bury the US Constitution, not to praise it.

The evil that men do lives after them;

The good is oft interred with their bones;

So let it be with the US Constitution. The noble Hillary,

Hath told you the US Constitution was ambitious:

If it were so, it was a grievous fault,

And grievously hath the US Constitution for answer'd it.

Here, in the face of the US Constitution,

Hillary and the rest took leave and destroyed of thousands of State Department work e-mails that we will never know about or read--

For Hillary is an honourable woman;

So are they all, all honourable men and women--

Come I to speak in US Constitution's funeral.

It was my friend, faithful and just to me:

But Hillary says it was ambitious;

And Hillary is an honourable woman.

In the face of the US Constitution,

While at the State Department helm,

Hillary hath brought many bundlers like Rajiv Fernando

home to Washington DC,

Whose donations did the Clinton Foundation’s coffers fill:

Did this in the US Constitution seem ambitious?

When that the poor have cried, the US Constitution hath wept:

Ambition should be made of sterner stuff:

Yet Hillary says the US Constitution was ambitious;

And Hillary is an honourable woman.

You all did see that at the House’s Benghazi and State E-mail hearings,

In the face of the US Constitution,

Where Hillary hath thrice by thrice by thrice perjured herself in sworn testimony,

Was this the US Constitution’s ambition?!

Yet Hillary says US Constitution was ambitious;

And, yet, sure, Hillary is an honourable woman.

I speak not to disprove what Hillary spoke,

But here I am to speak what I do know.

You all did love the US Constitution once, not without cause:

What cause withholds you then, to now mourn for it?

Nay, dearest Citizens, to yearn for it?

O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts,

And men have lost their reason. Bear with me;

My heart is in the coffin there with the US Constitution,

And I must pause till it come back to me.

Alas, if it can ever come back to me.

First Citizen:

Methinks there is much reason in his sayings.

Second Citizen:

If thou consider rightly of the matter,

The US Constitution, and the United States of America,

Has been put to a great wrong.
