Clinton's IT guy turns state's evidence

Hang in there, Bernie. You don't need Mitt Romney to knock out your party's front-runner. The FBI may come to your rescue.

From the Washington Post:
The Justice Department has granted immunity to a former State Department staffer, who worked on Hillary Clinton’s private email server, as part of a criminal investigation into the possible mishandling of classified information, according to a senior law enforcement official.
The official said the FBI had secured the cooperation of Bryan Pagliano, who worked on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign before setting up the server in her New York home in 2009.
As the FBI looks to wrap up its investigation in the coming months, agents are likely to want to interview Clinton and her senior aides about the decision to use a private server, how it was set up, and whether any of the participants knew they were sending classified information in emails, current and former officials said.
I wrote this post in August: "Petraeus prosecutor going after Hillary."

This is what I wrote in October:
Remember how Barbara Bush said that the word she would describe Hillary Clinton with "rhymes with witch"? Well, Hillary rhymes with perjury and Andrew Napolitano on Fox News thinks that may be a problem for her.
“I think that the FBI will recommend to the Justice Department that she be indicted,” the judge said on Megyn Kelly's show.
She is lying about her email, but she lies about everything. And her husband got away with perjury by falsely testifying, under oath in a deposition, that he did not have sex with Monica Lewinsky -- a lie he later repeated to the American people.
Her fate is in the hands of Barack Obama. To protect his legacy, he may have to throw her in prison.
And I wrote this in January:
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.
And a few weeks later, I wrote this:
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?
And today, I still know nothing. I am a fool. I sit on my hill and watch the world spinning round.

    As far as the possible prosecution of Hillary goes, I prefer Arte Johnson's "Veeerrry interesting."

  2. I'd have to see it to believe it.

    And I need to be revived from the shock of seeing the words "Obama" and "decency" in the same paragraph.

  4. It's about time they did this. The IT guy is just bait fish. Time to start reeling in the Big Tuna herself.

    Joe Biden should start preparing his acceptance speech as the D-Party's nominee for president by acclamation at the upcoming convention. By now even Bill Clinton probably realizes Biden is a far better option than his wife in the general election.

    1. By now even Bill Clinton probably realizes Biden is a far better option than his wife in the general election.

      Their best shot is...

      A 74 year old man vain enough to have hair plugs installed and veneers put on his teeth so they're a color you only see on TV newscasters. A man whose intellectual deficits are well known (bottom half of his law school class, cited for plagiarism). A man whose professional life outside politics consists of a few years as an associate in a suburban law firm. A man who has episodes where he confuses his family history with Neil Kinnock's family history. A man who has episodes at length in public view sufficiently peculiar that one psychiatrist suggested a dementia work-up. He did succeed in raising a son who's really good at leveraging connections, on and off the nose candy.

  5. Valerie J will decide if all this is in O's interest. If not, nothing will happen. The fate of the world will be used as an argument that it is not and The FBI director will be denounced as a Republican tool.

  6. It won't happen. Dimocrats stick together and protect their own no matter how slimy they are. They protected BJ and they'll protect Cankles. Party over country.

  7. @Anon 1:56pm: As I wrote in my earlier post, I don't think the Democrat Party big wigs still consider Hillary a good candidate with a lock on the general election. Rather, she is a desperate alternative to an even worse candidate in Bernie Sanders. Behind the scenes, I will bet the farm the party big shots are all trying to find any way to push H! aside and replace her with Joe Biden. He's a far more likable candidate with many fewer negatives than H! and the only D candidate who can capitalize on Trump's huuuuuge negatives to win in a walk. The Ds know they are in a messy situation with their candidates. At this late date it can only be resolved---since H! will never step aside voluntarily---if Obama lets the DoJ hand down an indictment of her. He gets to look "heroic" even "noble" in the eyes of the historians, he saves the D party from H! by giving them a winnable/winning replacement for her in Biden, and he eliminates the Clinton Crime Family as his competitor when he asks the same donors for their $$$$ in order to build his library and cement his future legacy. An indictment of H! is a win-win-win...-win choice for The One.

    1. pretty good reasoning mr Iapetus. However I have good info about VJs influence over O, her power cannot be ruled out. How O thinks, I do not know but it is fun to make stuff up about motive as we do here all the time. The loyalty of the black vote seems to be all that is holding him and the democrats together these days. These voters have spoken their mind on Sanders compared to H! so to dump her would be to dis them, something I do not think O has the will or inclination to do.. He stands to become richer and more powerful by directing their votes to who ever has paid him the most in future primaries if he shows them respect now. If he acted the way you would expect it would mean he has a moral dimension I have not detected. But maybe there is a String Theory for politics waiting to be discovered...

    2. I think Biden is likely to get more support from black voters than H! ever could. As Obama's VP and hand-chosen successor, Biden would be seen as carrying on Obama's legacy. Historically Democratic black voters would have no difficulty switching their allegiance from H! to Uncle Joe. It's gonna happen. And if it does, Uncle Joe will win the general.

  8. "Obama" and "moral dimension" in the same thought!

    Stop it, people! You're gaslighting me!

  9. FBI cannot indict. A U.S. attorney must seat a grand jury. The indictment must be handed down from a grand jury. Loretta will not seat said grand jury.
    Just another dog and pony show.
