Tonight's edition of The Kelly File was one very long rant about how furious Fox News is about the FBI's announcement that there was nothing to justify criminal charges in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails.

No one plays Madame Fury like Megyn Kelly in a black leatherette cocktail dress. And who better as her escort than Speaker Paul Ryan, Republican puppet and master of the show?

After spending a few moments whining about how the Clintons are "above the law," Ryan promised revenge hearings. But not ones where Hillary Clinton would be called to Capitol Hill, because we all know what happens when she gives testimony before Congress. (She kicks their ass, in case you've forgotten.)

No, they're going to haul Director Comey up to the Hill to answer questions that he did not, or would not, answer today.

This was so predictable I could see it coming while Comey was wrapping up his press statement. He left just enough of a scent to bring the hounds, and the hounds are now barking at his heels.

Like any "good" Republican, he will surely give them just enough tiny tidbits of innuendo to sustain them and provide a distraction from the flaming train wreck of a candidate they're fielding for the Oval Office.

It's all just so cynical. I once again feel the need to remind everyone that Trump is a fascist endorsed by Fox News, whereas Hillary Clinton is a Democrat who once served on the panel that investigated Richard Nixon. Roger Ailes has a long memory. Just so you understand the lay of the land and what the agenda is.
