"Some people know everything, but that's all they know."



By now, if you pay any attention to politics, you know that on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace President Obama signaled to the Justice Department and the FBI what he expects the outcome of their investigation into Hillary’s email server should be. Mrs. Clinton should receive nothing more than a mild slap on the hand for carelessness. Since then, even those who have been predicting Mrs. Clinton would be indicted have begun to back away from their prediction.

Hillary Clinton is the one and only hope to ensure that the policies Barack Obama put in place will continue for another eight years. President Obama has no intention of following in the footsteps of George W. Bush and retiring to a quiet life, out of the media’s attention. With Hillary in office, Barack Obama will be nearly as omnipresent in the media as he is now. Neither will he stop apologizing for America or saying that “there is no difference between capitalism and communism.” He has a thousand and one reasons for preventing the Justice Department from indicting Hillary Clinton.

People who know FBI director James Comey say that he’s not the kind of man to yield to President Obama’s will if the evidence calls for more than a mild rebuke. And among the 100 or so FBI agents on the case, you can be sure they won’t remain silent if they believe their investigation has been subverted.

At issue here, however, is not just whether sufficient evidence exists to prosecute Hillary (I believe it does); it’s whether or not the Justice Department believes it would get a conviction. It’s not unusual for the FBI/Justice to decide not to prosecute a case, even if they believe the subject of an investigation is guilty, when it believes it’s not likely to get a conviction. Consider the egg allover Comey’s face if that happened.

On the other side of the ledger, if Clinton gets away with nothing by a slap on the hand, the apparent cover up will make Watergate look like a man wearing a hat to cover up his bald head. Richard Nixon knew the rules applied to him, he just broke them anyway. Hillary believes the rules don’t apply to her.

Whatever the outcome Hillary has a big problem. If she’s indicted, it’s the end of her campaign for president. If all she gets is a slap on the hand, the details of the FBI investigation will leak out in the middle of the general election campaign. The liberal media may want to sweep all that under the rug, but I doubt they’ll be able to do that. Once the general election campaign begins negative political ads reminding Americans of Hillary’s dishonesty, poor judgment and lack of achievement will fill the airways; and the email scandal will loom large in the presidential debates. Hillary can run, but she can’t hide.

Of course, every presidential election is a contest between the nominees of the two major political parties. As Will Rogers once said, “It’s a good thing that only one of the son-of-a-bitches can win.” Democrats will be equally if not nastier in attacking the Republican nominee, who will have his weaknesses, and American demographics tend to favor Democrats. Nevertheless, Hillary is not the politician her husband is, and Americans may decide that she is not above the rules.

    I also wonder why there is no mention of the breaking of the NON-security rules for simple federal record keeping. She deleted 30,000 mails without asking the archives to review if they should be kept for FOIA and federal history or federal record keeping. Only SHE decided what was personal without any official 2nd opinions. This concerns me as we all take the “federal record keeping” online training upon working for the government and learn how to retain, review and properly request deletion of records. I will not even go into the various trainings and laws covering marked or unmarked classified product , who may declassify and what to do with the markings or how to NOT copy and NOT improperly move or care for secure classified items. Parts of that law do not mention nor care about “intent” simply doing something careless with classified info is enough to be in troubles. Whether democrat or republican , we should all care about security and follow the law. Other people may have used email but they did not have classified info on a server at home.

  2. According to virtually every poll but for Rassmussy Billary is rocking it. Last month, which was not too long ago Trump was stomped in the polls. Any thoughts, especially by an old crow like ED are very absurd to me if such people ever thought Hillary would be punished? That mindset is stranger than thinking Jimmy Clap would have been brought to trial. My point with bringing up the polls she clearly got away in every possible meaning by any legitimate analysis – CoMe on Ed!
