Make no mistake about it. Hillary Clinton, former first lady…former senator from New York, and former secretary of state has died. Officially, the body is still warm, but she’s dead in the water. Stopped breathing. The coroner is arriving, and the priest has already given the last rites.
The email scandal is not going to go away. Every day, more and more is being learned about how many more hundreds of “classified” emails were found among the 55,000 pages of emails turned over to the state department. And every day, more emails are turning up at various locations around the country. Yesterday, we learned that the company that hosted her email address (and all of those emails) was located in a loft in Denver. Yeah…real secure. The server was in a bathroom closet.
The FBI is not a bunch of JV basketball players trying to pick up Suzie for the dance Friday night. These are serious dudes. They don’t screw around. I don’t know if you’ve ever known anyone in federal law enforcement…but the guy that is the number two guys at the US Marshall’s office used to live down the street from me back in Ohio. His wife in fact, used to babysit my kids when they were growing up. He was a nice guy…but when it was time to get the bad guys, he was all business. You don’t fool around with these guys, and politics be damned. They will investigate and gather all of the information out there.
The other thing I’ve learned a while back is these government law enforcement types typically don’t waste their time. If there’s nothing there, they determine that very quickly and move on. It’s not like they’ve got a ton of time with nothing to do. When they start investigating, they are doing it because they realize there is some serious shit going on. And in about 99% of the cases, they find it. And Hillary is going to end up in that 99%.
Now, that’s NOT to say that the Justice Department, which HAS become politicized particularly under Democratic administrations (like Janet Reno???), will actually do anything with the information, but will that matter? If the FBI finds that Hillary Clinton is hiding something, has lied, or has committed a crime, they will be arresting her.
That was all about what that round of golf on Martha’s Vineyard was this past weekend. Bill was trying to get Bobo to agree that he would pardon Hillary for any crimes she may have committed while secretary of state. And I wouldn’t put it past Obama to make a deal with Clinton, especially if Biden jumps in the race. Hillary drops out, say, due to health issues, and fades away, and he pardons her on his last day in office. That way Smilin’ Joe has a clear path to the nomination, and the chance to win the White House and continue Obama’s programs.
Oh…for you trivia fans, here’s a little something…the last secretary of state to be elected president? It was James Buchanan. He was elected 156 years ago. Somehow that doesn’t seem like a prudent path to the White House!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
