FBI headed for a showdown over Hillary



Former federal prosecutor Joseph diGenova, who represents whistleblowers at the State Department, is convinced the FBI and Attorney General Loretta Lynch will have a showdown when the investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails wraps up in the next 60 days.

He told radio talker Laura Ingraham: "They have reached a critical mass in their investigation of the secretary and all of her senior staff. And, it's going to come to a head, I would suggest, in the next 60 days."

DiGenova seems to be a reliable source given his background (he helped prosecute John Hinckley) and his clientele.

"It"s going to be a very complex matter for the Department of Justice, but they're not going to be able to walk away from it," DiGenova said. "They are now at over 1,200 classified emails. And, that's just for the ones we know about from the State Department. That does not include the ones that the FBI is, in fact, recovering from her hard drives."

DiGenova is not saying what the charges are, but he said he believes the FBI will have enough to charge her. However, the White House has to sign off before they seek an indictment.

"I believe that the evidence that the FBI is compiling will be so compelling that, unless [Lynch] agrees to the charges, there will be a massive revolt inside the FBI, which she will not be able to survive as an attorney general. It will be like Watergate. It will be unbelievable," DiGenova said.

Speculation? Sure. We shall see.

By the way, you can run for president from federal prison. Keith Russell Judd received 41 percent of the Democratic primary vote in West Virginia in 2012 while sitting in a federal prison in Texas.

  1. Yes Hillary will be indicted, but not on the 60 day time scale he indicates. It will be about June 1 or so, after she gets enough delegates to win the nomination, but before the official nomination at the convention. As a consequence, the delegates will be free to choose another candidate. A totally invented candidate will emerge and win the nomination: Michelle Obama.

    3. This is exactly right. Obama hates the Clintons only slightly less than he despises the rest of America. And, sadly, everyone who voted for Obama will vote for his wife and I see a good chance she'll win. Goodbye America.

    4. Yeah, they have no hope. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of crooks.

    5. Hillary surely has enough dirt on Obama to sink a Michelle candidacy. Biden would be the next in line.

    6. "Goodbye America" is correct. But it won't matter who is elected the next U.S. President. R or D - this country will be completely torn like never before under the next president. Only a fool (see: Trump and Hillary supporters) believes otherwise.

  2. This is wishful thinking on Joseph diGenova's part. In the banana republic America has become the powerful and politically connected are above the law.

    Predicting the future is risky business, but I have ten bucks that says the FBI will eventually issue a milquetoast mistakes-were-made-but-no-crimes-were-committed report. At best (worst?) some low-level flunky may get indicted and sent to the slammer, but even that is highly unlikely.

    You have heard of "too big to fail"? Well, Hillary! is "too big to indict".

    1. Sad to say but I have to agree with you. Hillary is even less likely to be indicted than what we saw at the IRS. Obeying the law is for the "little people."

    2. Right on. The dry rot is deep in our government and both parties have reserved the right to hold the elites to a different standard than the rest of us.No charges just mounds and mounds of evidence proving her guilt that will be set aside.

    3. The chance of Hillary being indicted is ZERO. No way will this investigation see the light of day except as an exoneration. We have long passed into the banana republic stage

  3. I'd be amazed were she indicted. There is a separate standard for the rich and connected. Google Jeffery Epstein and see how he got to serve his pedophile jail sentence going home to his bed every night. He is a close friend of the Clintons. In fact Bill went to his Lolita Island ten or eleven times. Young girls kept there recognized him, but they mostly won't talk today. This country has become very corrupt.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Well, it is obvious that anyone who is against Hilary is sexist, racist, classist, homophobic, white privileged and not checking same. And Bill was on Arsenio Hall. So, in conclusion with all the facts, it is George W. Bush's fault. And gun owners. But not illegal gun owners, because they don't know any better and simply need more social funding

  5. Continuing the idea that Shrillary won't be indicted because of her "too big to indict" privilege won't this just play into the populist appeal of Trump? Won't it just reinforce some voters disgust with the current system? This election is different than any one in memory. I don't think the old rules apply to this one. Time will tell.

    1. One would hope so, but I think that, more realistically, the reaction of most people will be along the lines of "she didn't get charged, so whatever it is that she did couldn't have been too bad. I'm even more ready for Hillary!"

  9. Hillary has done untold damage to the intelligence community with her private server. I imagine the NSA and CIA must be questioning all their sources and intelligence since 2009 until they can figure exactly who hacked her computer and when. My hope is that the NSA/CIA are calling in all their favors with the FBI to burn Hillary.

    I'm less optimistic once the investigation leaves the FBI and is in the hands of the scandal goalie DoJ.

    1. IMOHO - one can pretty much be sue that the only people who did not have not read Hillary's Emails are members of the US Congress, and the "general public" - regardless of nationality. Combined with the Chinese hack of the personnel records - the workng assumption is that anything sent by email, or stored on-line, is "common knowledge" to any one with more computer skills than Obama.

  12. Note that the prediction is that "unless [Lynch] agrees to the charges, there will be a massive revolt inside the FBI".
    Director Comey and the great majority of FBI agents are of high integrity. They will not quietly stand by if this is covered up. The facts will prevail- in Federal Court or the court of public opinion.

    1. If the FBI was of "high integrity" Obama would have been arrested years ago for forging his birth certificate, using a stolen SSN, and forging his selective service registration record. The FBI is complicit, corrupt, and incompetent at best.

  13. I hate to agree but Don Surber is wrong. I simply can't see Hillary being indicted...they would have sent some serious signals by now, but like Recovering Lutheran says, it will amount to a slap on the wrist. General Petraeus got screwed because he was military and for better or worse, military are inferior in the modern culture. If the media won't back you up, you're up a creek without a paddle.

  14. Correction, I meant to day Mr. diGenova is wrong, not Don Surber!

  15. There is no way on earth that Hilary will be indicted. Obama will order the Lynch not to indict.
    Obama would much rather see a lying criminal progressive as prez - Hilary - as opposed to any conservative or near conservative.
    Recall that the next prez may appoint two justices of the Supreme Court.
    Also note that the media will do EVERYTHING to cover up this mess.
    There will be NO Watergate type scenario because the media will provide cover for Lynch, Obama and Hilary.
    Liberal progressives ARE ABOVE THE LAW and I am surprised that not everybody knows this. There is no crime Hilary can commit that will raise the ire of the media or the liberal progressive elites.
    For a liberal progressive, the worst crime imaginable is the election of a president like a Reagan, Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Fiorina, etc.
    Just as the CPUSA bent over backwards to hide/minimize the mass exterminations of Stalin and the Hitler Stalin Pact, so too will the media and liberal progressive elites hide / minimize any crimes committed by Hilary.
    That is today's reality folks. We had best wake up and face this fact.

  18. "If no charges are filed there will be a revolt inside the FBI?"

    First of all, as stipulated, that depends on whether the final report on the investigation is straight up or a whitewash. But even if the evidence goes against Clinton and then Lynch---on her own or by order of the White House---refuses to issue an indictment, I cannot see the FBI going public with any dissent. There will be no repeat of The Saturday Night Massacre. People as highly principled as Archibald Cox, Elliot Richardson, and William Ruckelshaus are in rare supply in the lawless Obama administration.

    1. Of course nobody knows how this will play out. But a whitewash report does not destroy facts. And the pressure within the FBI will virtually guarantee that the facts get out. Do not be surprised if you need to add James Comey to your "highly principled people" list

    2. Joe diGenova said Comey "may even resign if Lynch doesn't prosecute Clinton." That would be 100% symbolic, right? What would that accomplish, who'd care?

  19. The Justice Department will sit on the evidence until the election. If Hillary wins they will indict her and Obama will pardon her. If she loses they will indict her and Obama will let her hang, because he loves the Clintons soooo very much.

  20. Not too big to indict. It's too big to jail. Remember, these are the Clintons. They have been literally getting away with murder for their entire political lives. If BJ had been a Republican, he would have been forced to resign the presidency as his corruption was far worse than Nixon's. Whitewater and cattlegate would have sunk the Clintons before the primaries, not to mention BJ being a draft dodger. But, since they are Dimocrats they skated. Dimocrats can get away with murder. Ask Mary Jo Kopechne. Both Clintons should be in jail for the rest of their lives. Instead, they are respected members of the Dimocrat Party.

  21. Lynch is claiming that Obama's unconstitutional Executive Orders on Gun Control are 100 percent constitutional. In addition she publically threated to prosecute people for using heated anti-Islamic rhetoric.(A clear violation of the 1st Amendment) I am not convinced that Lynch won't also refuse to prosecute Hillary as well. In fact, I am almost positive that she will refuse to do so.

  22. And the elites wonder why Trump is so popular....a majority of Americans are sick to death of the corruption in DC, and the "one law for thee, but not for me" attitude of our politicians and their supporters in the media. I am a strong Trump supporter, do not consider myself a fool, just one of many that want to throw a monkey wrench into the corrupt machinations of the DC machinery, would like to see a wall built on the southern border, anchor baby status repealed, and no Muslim immigration into the US. If that makes me a fool, methinks there are a lot of us that will be voting for Trump.

  23. Clinton's controlled the party and the power when Bill was in office. That control slipped from their grasp during the Bush years and was lost entirely when Obama was elected. Now Obama has that power and control and the one scenario where he loses it is with Hillary being elected.

    She will be indicted when the timing is best to replace her with the Obama/Jarett chosen substitute.

  25. I suggest that readers wondering what charge(s) Secretary Clinton might face (Cf. David Petraeus) look at U.S. Code - Title 18 §1924 [Unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material]. It's brief.

  29. She will NEVER be indicted, let alone charged. The President will not sign off on the investigation. If anything he will pardon her for any crimes that she may have committed. He'll make up some excuse, attributing it to a political witch hunt, the "War on Women", or some other BS, such as the difficulties and pressure of being Secretary of State during the "fog of war". Of course it's all BS, but what can they do to him? NADA. ADIOS AMERICA! This is what happens when a demegogue thug gets elected to office...Power corrupts, but absolute power corrupts absolutely. Clinton belongs in jail, not only for this, but for lying to Congress about the Benghazi murders, as well as running a criminal enterprise under the guise of the Clinton Foundation, where her and her husband are taking laundering illegal campaign contributions from oversee's donors and living the high life on the foundations dime. It's a scam and a fraud.

  31. "By the way, you can run for president from federal prison."

    Indeed. Eugene V. Debbs garnered almost a million votes in the 1920 election while sitting in durance vile in the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary as a result of speaking out against the oppressive Wilson administration. (First Amendment? What First Amendment?)
