    The corruption, the scandals, the bad faith dealing, it just keeps adding up. For the record, getting an indictment, requires nothing more than probable cause, only a conviction requires proof beyond a reasonable doubt. I can not count the times I have had to try a case where the prosecutor acknowledged the defendant might actually be not guilty-but the mindset for the poor, the non-affluent was always "lets just put it on, and let it go to a jury and see what happens." But for the wealthy-they can make "donations" to avoid prosecution in circumstances where just about anyone else would be charged. The hypocrisy of the chants "look her up"-in the face of EVERYTHING that is coming out...is stunning-but not at all shocking.
