You can’t make this shit up. Oct. 28, 2016. A week and a half before Election Day, Democratic Presidential candidate, Hillary R. Clinton is under an FBI investigation for emails found on the laptop computer owned by Huma Abedin and her estranged husband ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner. (Emails found inadvertently because of an investigation into Weiner who sexted a fifteen year old girl.)
Why is it serious? The MSM has failed to report that the charges against Clinton are: providing false information in a federal investigation and pressuring a third-party to conspire in a cover-up. If found guilty, Mrs. Clinton could receive a five year prison sentence.
Republican candidate Donald Trump has called it the “The biggest political scandal since Watergate.”
Hillary Clinton dodged a few questions at a “press conference” and in a speech, demanded to know what the FBI had on her. Her campaign chairman John Podesta told FBI director James Comey “To put up or shut up.”
How did the emails get on the Abedin/Weiner computer? Abedin said it was difficult to print out from the State Dept., so she (illegally) forwarded it to her private Yahoo email. It’s likely these emails were classified top secret. Assuming Hillary Clinton knew this, she is guilty of mishandling classified information. Q. Wasn’t this previously dismissed by Comey on July 3rd? Yes, but under a storm of controversy. Comey found her to be “extremely careless”, but without criminal intent. What has changed since then? The “WikiLeaks dumps”, proving an out-of-control Clinton campaign. It is rumored that Julian Assange has the 33,000 “deleted” emails and is ready to release them. It’s possible some of these docs may be discovered on the laptop computer. It seems unlikely the FBI probe will be over by Nov. 8 because of the tens of thousands of files found. It will put Hillary under a dark cloud of suspicion until it is resolved. It’s unknown how much it will affect the presidential race and if she is found guilty, will current President Obama pardon her?
