Hillary Clinton will not be the Democratic nominee for president. I think there is a fairly good chance she will not even be in the race by the time of the Iowa Caucus. The findings from government inspectors and the FBI of top secret documents on her unsecured server may very well be the nail in her coffin.
The Democrats will not want to risk nominating someone who may be under indictment by the time of the election. Will there be an indictment? There are two factors needed for there to be an indictment. There needs to be an indictable crime and the justice department needs to be willing to make an indictment.
The inspector’s statement that Ms. Clinton had top secret information on her unprotected server, assuming this is true, means there is unquestionably an indictable crime. My understanding of the law is that intent to misuse the information is not necessary for this to be a crime; it is a crime to put classified data in an unprotected location. General David Petraeus and many others were convicted for much less. The big question is will the Justice Department indict?
Up to this point the Obama administration has been highly consistent in that it will not even investigate, much less indict, Democrats who are loyal to the president. The fact that there has not even been an investigation, much less an indictment, of the IRS harassment of conservatives is the prime example of this. President Obama, however, does not like Hillary Clinton. This is documented in Edward Klein’s book “Blood Feud: The Clinton’s vs. the Obamas.” Obama doesn’t need to do anything to free the path to an indictment. All he needs to do is step aside, do nothing, and let the FBI do their job.
While her handling of unclassified emails currently appears to be her largest legal problem, it is not the only legal problem. Her destruction of emails under subpoena could subject her to obstruction of justice charges. Hillary and Bill have also amassed a fortune of over $150 million dollars since Bill left office. Much of this derives from speaking fees from foreign sources who “coincidentally” had major issues before the state department at that time. These sources also gave many more millions to the Clinton foundation. Investigation into these donations could also lead to criminal charges.
It seems that every day something new comes out about Hillary’s illegal activities and showing that her denials are lies. If you were a leader in the Democratic party, would you want to risk going into the next election with all of your eggs in the Hillary basket?
