FBI chief James Comey is going to have a difficult time doing what the evidence says he should do, since the President has already weighed in on Hillary’s email debacle. Obama earlier spoke up on Hillary Clinton’s behalf, that she did nothing to compromise national security, in essence he exonerated her before the evidence could be sorted through – just like he did when the IRS had been caught targeting conservative groups.
It’s as if we can see Mr. Obama in a reflective yellow-lined traffic vest perfunctorily waving his hands to the investigators: “Move along; nothing to see here.” But we suspect that the FBI Chief’s got Hillary dead-on square in his sights. Read NY Post article excerpted below. It’s going to be interesting to see if President Obama will try to stonewall the FBI. This would clearly paint the Democrats as having accepted themselves as being completely above the law, conceding now to run the country like a banana republic.
1. Should Obama Stay Out of It?
NY Post– Just how close Comey is to any recommendation — whether to indict or exonerate Clinton — is difficult to know. But agents believe the probe is nearing an end. A State Department staffer who set up Clinton’s e-mail server, for instance, was recently granted immunity from prosecution to provide Comey’s team with evidence.
“You don’t start granting people close to Clinton immunity unless you are seriously looking at charges against your target,” one former official told me.
I’m also told Comey and his team increasingly doubt Clinton’s story.
FBI sources say he has no backing from President Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch to recommend charges against the former secretary since a Clinton presidency may be the best chance to preserve the Obama legacy.
That leaves Comey in a bind: Does he do what is politically expedient and deny the reality that Clinton’s e-mail server activities violated the law, or follow the evidence to wherever it takes him? See Full Story at NY Post
