By George Parry As a criminal defense lawyer who has been forced by unfortunate circumstances to champion any number of hopeless causes, I wish to express my professional admiration for FBI Director James Comey's creative and, dare I say it, "Clintonian" public exoneration of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The FBI investigated Clinton for possible violations of a criminal statute that makes it a felony for anyone lawfully possessing information pertaining to the national defense to allow it, through "gross negligence," to be removed from its proper place of custody and disclosed.

SOME PEOPLE seem to think that I actually matter. They message me in response to a particular column with either angry criticism or "atta girl!" euphoria, assuming that whatever I've written will have some impact on other readers. I am often amused by these emails, because the truth of the matter is that I can't even cajole my 7-year-old nephew to stop sticking french fries in the dog's nostrils. Clearly, my persuasive heft isn't all that hefty. And yet, after my most recent foray into politics where I mentioned that I'd probably vote for Donald Trump if no viable alternative presented itself, dozens of readers begged me to stop writing such ridiculous and/or dangerous and/or lunatic things.

THE POLITICALLY charged FBI investigation of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's email practices has ended with a recommendation that no criminal charges be filed against her. In my view, it's the right recommendation, since the FBI found no proof of criminality in Clinton's use of a private email server for official business while she was secretary of state. However, as FBI director James Comey rightly said regarding eight Clinton email chains on top-secret matters, "any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton's position . . . should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation.

Discretion within reason is acceptable in law enforcement. But while few complain when leniency is afforded ordinary people accused of minor crimes, there will be many critics of the FBI's decision Tuesday not to recommend prosecution of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for carelessly handling top-secret emails when she was secretary of state. Using his favorite medium for mass communication, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump tweeted, "FBI director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security.

IN WILLIAM J. O'BRIEN'S eyes, the U.S. government and members of the FBI are a bunch of "liars" and "bullies" who have charged him with drug-related offenses for no legitimate reason. But to Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Leahy and her colleagues, O'Brien is a doctor who conspired with the Pagans Motorcycle Club to deal drugs, trade pills for oral sex, and write multiple prescriptions without any type of medical standard or diagnosis. These were the main points in closing arguments in a trial in which O'Brien, who has acted as his own attorney, is accused of 14 counts of drug and related charges, stemming from a "pill mill" he allegedly ran with the motorcycle club.

In an age where every phone call, every web search, and nearly every purchase can leave a digital record, Amanda De Guio has done what virtually no one can explain. She has disappeared. Completely. It's been almost exactly two years since De Guio, then 24, walked out of her mother's Upper Darby Township apartment and never came back. She left behind her parents, three siblings, and ambitions of becoming a nurse. She took with her a drug problem. Most important, she left behind her two daughters, 2 and 5 at the time.
