Two political titans, with six pounds of bone mass between them.Or Video: Democratic socialist endorses socialist Democrat
"I have come here to make it as clear as possible why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton and why she must become our next president," Sanders said at a joint rally here. "Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nomination and I congratulate her for that."
The 74-year-old self-described democratic socialist, who has been a thorn in Clinton's side over the last year, pledged his support to his former rival: "I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States."
Clinton, speaking after Sanders, declared: "We are joining forces to defeat Donald Trump!"
"I can't help but say how much more enjoyable this election is going to be when we are on the same side," she said. "You know what? We are stronger together!"

The FBI’s recommendation not to pursue charges against Clinton is based on the belief that she did not intend to endanger our national security. Instead, Comey called her and her staff “extremely careless.” However, her actions do not seem careless at all. In fact, Clinton’s actions seem quite careful — careful to place her own interests before our national security. Setting up multiple unauthorized email servers is quite an undertaking. Ask any IT expert. Transmitting tens of thousands of government emails does not amount to one or two thoughtless mistakes but a calculated series of choices made over the course of several years.Speaking of the "intent" argument used by Comey to allow Clinton off the hook, Laws Posed Hurdles to Charging Hillary Clinton
“The gross negligence statute has always been troublesome,” said John L. Martin, a retired former top Justice Department attorney who headed the agency’s counterespionage section in the 1980s and 1990s and oversaw dozens of Cold War espionage prosecutions. “We have always been reluctant to use it in that manner.”So, it's on the books but they won't use it for fear of losing. A former First Assistant U.S. attorney presents A ‘reasonable’ case for charging Hillary Clinton.
The fear was the risk of an acquittal or dismissal that could “seriously undercut the government’s credibility,” Mr. Martin said. “When you take a case like this, that is so high-profile,” he said, “you have to make sure you’re going to win.”
Federal prosecutors have shied away from bringing negligence charges even when carelessness appeared to play a role in intelligence lapses.

House Letter Calls Clinton Foundation ‘Lawless’
Brown, a 69-year-old Democrat, and Chief of Staff Elias “Ronnie” Simmons, 50, entered pleas in Jacksonville federal court on charges of mail and wire fraud, conspiracy, obstruction and filing of false tax returns.
A new congressional letter circulating among lawmakers charges the William, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation is a “lawless, ‘Pay-to-Play’ enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years.”"So now we have a situation in which Team Clinton has scared citizens into thinking the threat to their lives is mostly domestic, coming from Trump, Trump supporters, and anyone who looks like them."
The letter, obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation, is authored by Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn who plans to send it to FBI Director James Comey, Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen and Federal Trade Commission chairwoman Edith Ramirez.
"People who are scared will act. And we see those actions now in terms of violence against police, violence against Trump supporters, and death threats to bloggers such as me. And we already have one attempted Trump assassination."It's funny how in the press, political violence is often portrayed as a threat from the right, but most of the political violence in the United States comes from the left.
