It’s like we’re in the “acceptance” stage in the five stages of (political ) grief.
On the Democrat side of the aisle the front-runner is currently being investigated by the FBI – and the Republican front-runner openly brags about giving money to politicians to “get things done.
Americans are fed up with corruption, and we somehow ended up with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as our (almost certain) candidates. We’ve apparently accepted that the system is busted.
Hillary refuses to even answer questions about the FBI investigation, as she did in the previous Democrat debate. “Oh, for goodness, it’s not going to happen. I’m not even answering that question,” she stated when asked about a potential indictment. She got a round of applause when she brushed the question off.
Voters aren’t going to do anything about it – and there’s good reason to believe the FBI won’t either. As HotAir reported:
You’d be hard pressed to find a parallel in the history of American politics where a major party presidential candidate was on the verge of winning the nomination while simultaneously facing the threat of indictment on serious criminal charges.
With the President being so clearly invested in electing a Democrat in general and Hillary Clinton in particular to continue his legacy, there’s simply no way he would risk putting his thumb on the scale for a candidate who might be essentially disqualified if she had to run the last stage of her campaign from a jail cell.
With all that in mind, it’s difficult to conclude anything other than a presumption that Obama knows that Clinton will face no such peril. But how could he know that if the investigation isn’t even finished yet?
It’s a question which is answered rather easily, and it all comes down to Huma Abedin.
When the Inspectors General turned over an embezzlement case against Abedin for prosecution, the Justice Department promptly dropped it in the circular file as an act of prosecutorial discretionand that was the end of it.
Is there any reason that they won’t do the same with Hillary Clinton herself?
There doesn’t seem to be much hope for an indictment. Government is always going to look after their own.
Maybe a President Trump would do something about it…
