Hillary will not be indicted
By John Bender
There is no doubt that Hillary Clinton should be indicted. Just the evidence that has been reported in the press is enough for even an inept prosecutor to convict Clinton on multiple charges. However, the evidence and the law are not going to be the determining factors in this case. Politics will be.
There are two major hurdles that would have to be overcome in order for Clinton to be brought to justice. First, FBI director James Comey would have to refer the case to the Justice Department with a recommendation that Clinton be charged. This may or may not happen.
Comey has a reputation for honesty, integrity, and principle. He stood up to the Bush administration and refused to authorize their warrantless wiretapping scheme. However, in 2014 the FBI under Comey made the absurd assertion that nothing warranted bringing criminal charges in the IRS scandal. So, one is left to wonder if Comey will act on principle as he did in 2004 or will cave to political considerations.
If Comey acts on principle and recommends criminal indictment he will face a firestorm from the Brian Williams press. The attacks will be savage and relentless. The question is; does Comey have the character to do the right thing knowing what he will face after he does.
The second hurdle would come if Comey recommends indictment. Attorney General Loretta Lynch would have to approve the indictments. The odds of that happening are about the same as someone hitting the Powerball jackpot and being struck by lightning on the same day. It could happen but calling it unlikely is like Noah saying he was in a rain shower.
Lynch is a far left ideologue who has no respect for the Constitution. She has backed Obama's executive amnesty for illegal aliens and worked with Obama to strip certain citizens their Second Amendment rights without their Constitutional right to due process.
Obama has already said the issue was "ginned up" because of politics and that, "…this is not a situation in which America's national security was endangered." He was signaling the regime's narrative and giving the lapdog media a preview of how the regime will react to Hillary's crimes. There is no reason to believe Lynch will honor her oath of office no matter what the evidence shows.
There is one more consideration that will preclude any indictment of Hillary. She will not go down alone. Hillary will go nuclear if indicted and take down as many members of the regime as she can. She will use every asset she has to destroy Obama's legacy if the regime indicts her. There is no way Obama will allow that if there is ANY way to avoid it.
Lynch and the lap dog press will have an easier time containing and minimizing the damage to the Obama regime's legacy if she refuses to indict Hillary than if she indicts Hillary and she goes to war on them. Refusing to bring Hillary to justice will be a one week story and then be forgotten. Going to war with the Clintons would be a bigger story than Watergate. The Obama regime will not let that happen and Lynch is the firewall protecting both the regime and Hillary.
