The rest of America would be surprised if the fix were not in. OK?
But what makes this interesting is that it just gave Hillary a few bad news cycles, which negates the pass she just received on Benghazi.
The Daily Caller's Chuck Ross wrote:
Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to meet Saturday with the FBI, a source close to the investigation into her private email server tells The Daily Caller.
The source went on to suggest the interview may take place at her Washington, D.C. home.
The bureau’s interview with the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is believed to be the final step in its investigation into the potential mishandling of classified information on Clinton’s private email server.That makes sense. My limited knowledge on criminal investigations is that the target is the last interviewed. Huma Abedin's meeting earlier this week would fit into such a timetable. If it is just bad email security, I doubt that derails her.
However, from Fox News:
The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email as secretary of state has expanded to look at whether the possible “intersection” of Clinton Foundation work and State Department business may have violated public corruption laws, three intelligence sources not authorized to speak on the record told Fox News.
This new investigative track is in addition to the focus on classified material found on Clinton’s personal server.
“The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed,” one source said.If the FBI can tie the Saudi money to emails divulging state secrets, it may be go to prison time for her.
Meanwhile, Richard Pollock of the Daily Caller reported:
When Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately Monday in her jet in Phoenix, Arizona, some speculate he may have been pleading for his wife who is under investigation by the FBI and the Department of Justice. But the former president may also have been pleading for himself, according to a former federal prosecutor.Lynch is taking the heat for Obama. FBI agents are putting some of that heat on. The bureau knows it is bigger than any president, and if Obama does not know this, his chief of staff Valerie Jarrett does. On January 20th, I wrote: "Will prosecuting Hillary be Obama's legacy?"
From that post:
In retrospect, Obama's appointment of James Brien Comey Jr. as FBI director is brilliant. Comey is by all accounts a man of integrity, an assistant attorney general who stood up to President Bush 43 over NSA spying. Obama's appointment of Comey assures that the investigation of Hillary is professional and not something slapped together by some special prosecutor. The Benghazi investigation is a mess. This one isn't. The FBI has more than 35,000 employees and experience in white collar crimes.
Prosecuting Hillary is a winner for Obama as it feeds her to the Left, which has hated her ever since the Hillarycare debacle. Prosecution also makes him look honest. Think what you may of him, but there is a decency about him, and he did block her from the presidency. Judging by how craven for power she is -- how she mistreats others -- she would have been worse. Far worse.
We shall see what happens. But do not be surprised if, at the end of the drama that will ensue once they send the report and recommendation to the White House, if Obama (via Attorney General Loretta Lynch) approves the seeking of an indictment or the filing of an information.
That is how I see it. What do I know?How does this affect Donald Trump? Hillary Clinton is the weakest presidential nominee I can recall.
