JUST NBC THE INEVITABLE CONCERN TROLLING REPUBLICAN OVERREACH HEADLINE! Analysis: Republicans Risk Playing into Clinton’s Hands With Comey Hearing.

As Allahpundit noted in 2013, in a post titled “Actual NYT headline: ‘IRS Focus on Conservatives Gives GOP an Issue to Seize On,’ You know this routine by now: If it’s a scandal involving Republicans, the story is the scandal. If it’s a scandal involving Democrats, the story — or at least a significant part of it — is whether and how Republicans will ‘politicize’ the scandal for their advantage…That LA Times headline that I screencapped last week is a textbook example of the genre: ‘Partisan politics dominates House Benghazi hearing,’ as if the big takeaway from Greg Hicks’s testimony was nothing-to-see-here politics-as-usual squabbling between Republicans and Democrats.”

As with her husband in the 1990s, the DNC-MSM has no desire to fully investigate Hillary’s high crimes and misdemeanors (to flashback to the 1998 book that launched Ann Coulter’s career) as if she was someone with an (R) after her name*, thus the inevitable Republican overreach stories.

* With the exception of 2008, when Hillary needed to be destroyed in the Democratic primaries to make way for Obama, and was treated, for once in her life, as a de facto Republican by the MSM. Or as NBC’s Keith Olbermann infamously quipped at the time, wishing Hillary would drop out, the Democrats needed “Somebody who can take her into a room and only he comes out.”
