I’m afraid much of my interest in the American election has disappeared now that I have worked out how it is going to end. Hillary will win the election, she will then be indicted by the FBI, she will be forced to resign and Tim Kaine will become President.
Here is the backstory.
From the start, the selection of Tim Kaine was a curiosity since he is 100% from the Obama side of the Democratic Party and Hillary would never under ordinary circumstances have picked one of Obama’s closest associates. As in:
Kaine held the key fundraising position of Democratic National Committee chairman during the entire run-up to Obamacare’s passage, as the Democrats passed that unpopular 2,400 page legislation without a single Republican vote. But Kaine’s ties to Obama go back further. In November of 2005, during Obama’s first year in the Senate, Obama campaigned for Kaine in the Virginia gubernatorial race. Just over a year later, in February of 2007—as the Los Angeles Times reports—Kaine became the first statewide elected Democrat outside of Illinois to support Obama’s presidential bid against the Democratic heir apparent, Hillary Clinton.
The Clintons are not exactly known for their short memories. So how is it that someone who was among the first to break ranks with Hillary in 2007 was rewarded with the top prize that she could grant in 2016? Could it be that Clinton decided that the largely unknown Kaine was such a big political asset that she should let bygones by bygones? Or could it be that Clinton, who has tied herself to Obama and is highly dependent on his help in turning out the Democratic base, was told whom to pick?
Or more to the point, Obama has always had the ability to short circuit any presidential ambitions Hillary might have had by getting the Department of Justice and Loretta Lynch to prosecute for unambiguous violations of national security laws that forbid government officials to use private email servers. So she chose for VP who she was told to choose. The question therefore was not whether she would be indicted but when.
Comey the first time round did nothing, against all of the evidence and the clear views of the rest of the FBI. So Hillary owed Obama to no end, if for nothing else, for keeping her out of jail, since if Lynch (ie Obama) had said indict, indicted she most surely would have been. This time round, however, Comey has raised the possibility of prosecution. So what do we have, from The NYT even: Loretta Lynch to Accept F.B.I. Recommendations in Clinton Email Inquiry. Really? It’s not just that the law must be obeyed, but must be seen to be obeyed? Think how ridiculous this sounds in the middle of the crimes the Obama administration has routinely undertaken.
Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch, conceding that her airport meeting with former President Bill Clinton this week had cast a shadow over the federal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s personal email account, said Friday that she would accept whatever recommendations career prosecutors and the F.B.I. director made about whether to bring charges in the case.
Ms. Lynch said she had decided this spring to defer to the recommendations of her staff and the F.B.I. because her status as a political appointee sitting in judgment on a politically charged case would raise questions of a conflict of interest. But the meeting with Mr. Clinton, she acknowledged, had deepened those questions, and she said she now felt compelled to explain publicly her reasoning to try to put the concerns to rest.
“People have a whole host of reasons to have questions about how we in government do our business,” Ms. Lynch said at an Aspen Institute conference in Colorado. “My meeting on the plane with former President Clinton could give them another reason to have questions and concerns.”
Yes, here they are, the most ethical administration in history and would not wish to have any blemish of impropriety on its record. And then from a few days ago, there was even this: Obama has not condemned Comey for raising these issues now.
Earnest [Obama’s press secretary] did reiterate that President Barack Obama thinks Comey is a man of “integrity” who didn’t do anything to “intentionally” influence the impending election when he offered Congress sketchy details about a new line of inquiry into the scandal over Clinton’s use of a private email server at the State Department.
Do you really think that is designed to help Hillary or to set things up to have her in jail once she wins the election?
Third, let me note how incredible it is that 650,000 emails have ended up on Weiner’s laptop, some of them highly classified and none of which he would have been sent by anyone, especially not by his estranged wife, Huma Abedin. So let’s add this in to the rest:
Abedin claims to be at a loss as to how her emails got onto Anthony’s laptop. That surprise could well be genuine. . . .
Weiner’s laptop contains 650,000 emails? If he sent or received 200 emails a day, 365 days a year–a considerable number!–it would take 3,250 days, or just about nine years, to accumulate 650,000 on the laptop’s hard drive. It is not clear–to me, anyway–what would cause such a large number of emails to reside on the laptop, absent some sort of bulk downloads.
Bulk downloads, you say. Who would do it? Who could do it? Huma is out of sight and probably has no idea what took place, while Weiner is facing many years in jail for sexting an underage teenager. Whatever she may know or wish, he is likely to be highly cooperative. He is anyway under lock and key somewhere and is guaranteed never ever to say anything that will upset the official version.
Lastly, with voting machines in place, boxes filled with pre-completed ballots, plenty of multiple voting, plus the illegals, there is no mechanism imaginable that Obama does not have everything sewn away.
Where it comes down to is this. Clinton will win the election and then be forced to resign making Kaine president.
