As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Internal Document Showed Obama DOJ Was Not Willing to Charge Hillary

Where’s the outrage over this?

The press has been beside itself that President Trump allegedly tried to influence an investigation of his former National Security advisor, Michael Flynn, by casually asking then-FBI Director James Comey if there might be a way to go easy on him.

Obviously, Flynn got hammered anyway.

Now we have evidence that the Obama Justice Department actually ordered the FBI to back away from charging Hillary Clinton as she ran to replace her friend Barack Obama as president. And of course, no charges were filed.

According to Fox News:

An internal chart prepared by federal investigators working on the so-called “Midyear Exam” probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails, exclusively reviewed by Fox News, contained the words “NOTE: DOJ not willing to charge this” next to a key statute on the mishandling of classified information. The notation appeared to contradict former FBI Director James Comey’s repeated claims that his team made its decision that Clinton should not face criminal charges independently.

Fox News has confirmed the chart served as a critical tip that provided the basis for Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe’s explosive questioning of former FBI lawyer Lisa Page last year, in which Page agreed with Ratcliffe’s characterization that the DOJ had told the FBI that “you’re not going to charge gross negligence.” A transcript of Page’s remarks was published Tuesday as part of a major document release by the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Georgia Rep. Doug Collins.

Yes, Hillary Did Pull a Fast One

See? I know these Clintons.

Tuesday, I wrote that the press was gobbling up misinformation when it accepted Hillary’s statement “I am not running” as also meaning, as she intended it to seem, that she “WILL not run.”

The Clintons, I noted, are both lawyers and liars, so you have to watch their careful language carefully. To me, it was obvious that she wasn’t ruling out that she might run in the future.

Well it looks like Clinton has recalculated and decided her deception might not be helpful to her. Because later in the day, we had this.

Hillary Clinton has nothing to lose, and nothing to do. And being president is what she always always wanted! Bill first, than Hillary. She ain’t ruling anything out until, I don’t know . . . after Election Day!

Soon, it will be Chelsea’s turn. We may one day live in a world where Clintons are not running for president. But not in our lifetimes, or possibly our children’s.

Hillary Pulls Another Fast One

It’s incredible to me that reporters never learn to listen closely to the Clintons, both of whom are attorneys who speak carefully — and also liars.

It’s all over the press that Hillary Clinton is not going to run for president. However, that’s not what she said.

Here’s a typical report from Politico:

Hillary Clinton will not run for president in 2020, she told a New York TV station in an interview that aired Monday night.

“I’m not running, but I’m going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe,” she said in an interview with News 12 in New York State.

Well of course she’s not running! Is she campaigning? Is she raising money for a campaign? I haven’t seen it, anyway.

But Monday very specifically DID NOT say that she WILL NOT run. She used the present tense, not the future tense, and she knew what she was doing.

Remember this? “There is not a sexual relationship.” Who said that? It was true there wasn’t — at the time he said it.

I don’t know what Hillary is thinking. I doubt she will run. But she may possibly get in if things seem “hopelessly divided” or if there is a brokered convention.

But at the moment, true enough, she isn’t running. Not right now.

New Acting Attorney General Wrote that it Would Be “Reasonable” to Indict Hillary

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, who replaced fired former AG Jeff Sessions Thursday, has written that Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted for her crimes.

The most recent ones, I’m talking about.

Whitaker wrote the following in a July 2016 response to former FBI Director James Comey’s contention that “no reasonable prosecutor” would prosecute Hillary, his rationale for not recommending the indictment:

Of the emails either turned over or recovered by the FBI, 110 contained information that was classified at the time it was sent or received, of which eight email chains contained information that was top secret at the time it was sent.

The facts also show it was gross negligence when she removed the information from State Department security. Secretary Clinton made the decision to use a personal email system, one that had inferior security to the State Department’s or even another commercial vendor’s email service.

A reasonable prosecutor may ask, if on numerous occasions, an unknown State Department employee had taken top secret information from a secured system, emailed that information on a Gmail account, and stored the information on a personal server for years, would that individual be prosecuted? I believe they would.

Will he do it? Of course not. Everybody talks a good game, but then when they get in power in Washington, it becomes a completely different story.

Clinton Suggests She is Seriously Thinking About Running for President

Hillary Clinton says she’d still like to be president and suggested a decision about whether she will run will be made after the November nidterm elections.

Hillary’s comment came in a response to a question she must have expected was made during an interview with journalist Kara Swisher in New York. This is the clearest indication I’ve heard that she is seriously thinking about getting in. Earlier this month, a former top aide floated what appeared to be a trial balloon about a potential Clinton Campaign #3, saying the chances of her running were “not zero.”

Question: We’re going to talk about 2020 in a minute. Do you want to run again?

Clinton: No. No.

Question: That was a pause…

Clinton: Well I’d like to be president. I think, hopefully, when we have a Democrat in the Oval Office in January of 2021, there’s going to be so much work to be done. I mean we have confused everybody in the world, including ourselves. We have confused our friends and our enemies. They have no idea what the United States stands for, what we’re likely to do, what we think is important, so the work would be work that I feel very well prepared for having been at the Senate for eight years, having been a diplomat in the State Department, and it’s just going to be a lot of heavy lifting.

Question: So are you going to be doing any of that lifting? Do you feel like …

Clinton: Oh I have no idea, Kara, but I’m going to … I’m not even going to even think about it ’til we get through this November 6 election about what’s going to happen after that, but I’m going to everything in my power to make sure we have a Democrat in the White House come January of 2021.

Note the usual tiresome Clinton lawyerly responses. Swisher phrased the question poorly, asking if she would “want” to run again. That gave Clinton a way to kind of deny she’s running by saying “no” – of course she doesn’t want to run for president. Who would? She wants to be president.

Clinton doesn’t want to seem too eager, which is why she is being unclear here. But she speaks carefully, and it’s very notable that she says “I’d like to be president” rather than “I wanted to be president.”

Her comments come at about the 35:10 mark below.

Top Former Hillary Clinton Aide: It’s Not Likely, But She Might Just Run

Honestly. People talked about moving to Canada if President Trump were elected. Of course, they all stayed and are now enjoying the benefit of his fantastic economy.

But if Hillary Clinton ran again, I might have to move to Canada. And not just Canada. I’m talking Saskatchewan.

Forget that she’d ruin the country. I just couldn’t stand to listen to her – to her, Bill and yes, the increasingly annoying Chelsea – for a whole 18 months.

Her former top press aide and senior strategist Philippe Reines floated what looks a lot like a trial balloon, commenting to Politico that she could run again and her name should be “in the mix.” Look, given the quality of the prospective Democratic field, I’d say, yes, she could get the nomination. But if someone reasonably strong emerges, then definitely not.

Because Hillary Clinton is the consummate has-been.

According to Politico:

“It’s curious why Hillary Clinton’s name isn’t in the mix—either conversationally or in formal polling—as a 2020 candidate,” said Philippe Reines, her longtime gatekeeper in the Senate and at the State Department. “She’s younger than Donald Trump by a year. She’s younger than Joe Biden by four years. Is it that she’s run before? This would be Bernie Sanders’ second time, and Biden’s third time. Is it lack of support? She had 65 million people vote for her.”

Even if half of those people would no longer support Clinton in another election, Reines argued, “there’s no one in the Democratic Party who has anywhere near a base of 32 million people. That’s multiples of what a Sanders or a Warren have.”

Reines said his biggest fear for the Democratic Party is that they realize, only in hindsight, that dismissing Clinton for the errors she made in 2016 was a mistake.

“Chalking the loss up to her being a failed candidate is an oversimplification,” Reines said. “She is smarter than most, tougher than most, she could raise money easier than most, and it was an absolute fight to the death.”

Does Reines plugging Clinton as a viable 2020 candidate mean that she’s running?

“It’s somewhere between highly unlikely and zero,” he said, “but it’s not zero.”

Hillary Clinton: Bill’s Affair With Monica Lewinsky Was Not an abuse of Power

You almost have to feel sorry for Hillary Clinton. Not only did she lose two presidential elections she was supposed to win, but she’s now on the wrong side of the #MeToo movement, and even her place as a pioneer for women in politics is in jeopardy.

That’s because her husband is a serial abuser of women, and possibly even a rapist, and she’s enabled him and stood by him the whole time.

Sunday, she told CBS that he didn’t abuse his power during his affair with Monica Lewinsky, saying she “was an adult.”

What she was, was a 22-year-old intern when Bill Clinton began an affair with her. He was 49. Any corporate executive that did this would have immediately been fired and would never have been able to get another similar job, even before the #MeToo movement.

Monica Lewinsky is spending the rest of her life being “Monica Lewinsky.” She has never married and is childless. One wonders what her life would have been like if Bill hadn’t stepped into it.

It’s nice to see a journalist ask about this. But he’s not so brave, because now she’s even disliked by the Left. Where were questions like these during the campaign?

Hillary lives in an alternate universe. She has to, because it would be much too painful for her to live in the one the rest of us do.

Hillary Says Civility Can Make a Comeback if Democrats Return to Power

She said this! She did. Hillary Clinton thinks Democrats are about civility. Just a little more evidence that of the two major party candidates, it was the one with the pantsuits who was delusional, not the one with the orange circus peanut hairdo. Anyway, here’s Hillary talking a lotta nonsense in Oxford, England. You know,… Continue Reading

Ken Starr Considered Charging Hillary Clinton with Perjury

Former Whitewater prosecutor Ken Starr writes in a new book that he nearly charged Hillary Clinton with perjury for her answers to prosecutors’ questions during a 1995 a deposition. “I was upset over Mrs. Clinton’s performance, and was even considering bringing the matter before the Washington grand jury for possible indictment on perjury,” Starr wrote… Continue Reading

FBI Reviewed Only 3,000 of Weiner’s 700,000 Emails; Strzok Supervised

According to RealClearIvestigations: When then-FBI Director James Comey announced he was closing the Hillary Clinton email investigation for a second time just days before the 2016 election, he certified to Congress that his agency had “reviewed all of the communications” discovered on a personal laptop used by Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, and her husband,… Continue Reading
