Response to grasswire (Original post)

8. It's hard to believe that Obama desires the disaster that a Clinton presidency...

...WILL be, due to her email server and its tentacles, as the followup to his presidency. If Obama does nothing about this, nor the FBI, nor Clinton's pal, AG Loretta Lynch, then our 8%-approval-rating Congress WILL take it up and it wouldn't surprise me to see them present Clinton with Articles of Impeachment the day after she's inaugurated (if she is ever inaugurated). So much for her "getting things done." (Congress will likely go along with her pay-offs to global corporate predators, cuz they're as in hock to them as she is. But $12/hr for the peons? She won't have time for anything like that, if she even intends to have time for it.)

This is a lengthy, detailed outline of what she did, and what laws she violated--based on what is publicly known, and on the experience of the signers It brings up a point I haven't seen made before: That the NSA and other spy agencies already know what's in her thousands of emails, had been surveilling it the whole time, and IF she becomes president, she will be blackmail-able by THEM, as well as by foreign entities who got in.

...the juicy email secrets in the hidden hands of the NSA and FBI are likely to give those already powerful institutions a capacity for blackmail that would make J. Edgar Hoover’s mouth water. In addition, information hacked by foreign intelligence services or Guccifer-like hackers can also provide useful grist for leverage or blackmail.--from the OP


This memo, which is addressed to President Obama, implies that Obama is playing politics and is permitting the "slow walking" of the FBI investigation. I haven't come to that conclusion yet. There are strong reasons to believe it, and strong reasons not to believe it. If anyone is delaying the FBI report, I tend to think it's A.G. Lynch. But I really can't make a good guess about it.

What IS clear, though, is that politics are very much involved--it really can't be otherwise, with the focus of the FBI investigation being the Democratic frontrunner for president. Whether it's FBI Director Comey worrying about the reputation of the FBI, and perhaps viewing this as a "political matter" that the FBI shouldn't meddle in, or at least shouldn't be seen as meddling in, or Obama's relationship with Clinton (lot of bad history there), or the RW morons in Congress drooling over prospective scraps from the FBI table, or Clinton's apparent desperation to shove Bernie Sanders out of the primary campaign (so that she becomes the de facto nominee ASAP, making the whole matter of the FBI investigation even more politically fraught), or Donald Trump late at night dreaming about what phrases he will use to call her a criminal.

Gawd, what a mess!

Clinton scandals. Another Clinton mess. She is like that Peanuts character "Pigpen" with dirt surrounding her like a cloud wherever she goes.
