Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Will the FBI Derail Hillary?

There are only two things left that could prevent Hillary from being elected president in about a year.

The first is Hillary herself, saying something, doing something, that reveals her ugly side to the public. But massive amounts of Darvon and horse tranquilizers are guarding against that.

The other thing, seriously now, that could derail her march to the White House is the FBI.

James Comey (pictured) — not Bernie Sanders — is the biggest challenge to Clinton’s presidential ambitions, a prospect that should keep the former Secretary of State up at night. Comey, the head of the FBI, is directing the investigation into Clinton’s use of a personal email server and attendant issues raised during the Benghazi inquiry, which could lead to indictments of the former Secretary of State or her various aides.

Clinton could be charged with breaking several laws, including willfully transmitting or retaining Top Secret material using a private server, unauthorized removal of classified information from government control or storing such information in an unauthorized location, lying to Congress, destruction of government property (wiping the server), lying under oath to a judge about having given the government all her emails or obstruction of justice.

If the probe determines that Hillary or her aides mishandled classified information or obstructed justice, her campaign will likely collapse. Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren or maybe Kirsten Gillibrand could emerge as a draft candidate.

But I don’t think so. The pressure on Comey to roll over and play nice is enormous and extends right into the Oval Office. Maybe if his friend Biden had declared himself a candidate, Obama might have let the FBI push Clinton aside. But with Biden out, Obama will concede to his party and make sure the Department of Justice does not indict Hillary.

And anything less than a formal charging will be meaningless. She’ll wriggle out from a “scathing report” as she has done so successfully so far.
