Imagine a Politically Weaponized FBI in Clinton’s Hands
Agents actively avoided catching Hillary lying and didn't want the media to catch her either
Pick a random word, suffix the word “gate” to it, and chances are you’ll end up with something illegal a Clinton did in the last quarter-century. Bill and Hillary are the Bonnie and Clyde of American politics, doing everything on their own terms and never putting much stock in the rules. The Clintons respect rules about as much as the guy who never shuts up about Fight Club.
Now, it’s clear to see that a hypothetical Hillary Clinton presidency won’t be much of a departure. Every 24-hour news menu will include a Clinton scandal du jour. It’ll be four years of documents surfacing, whistleblowers coming forward, and aides being scapegoated. Worst of all, given the fact that her private server was likely hacked and any country could be holding a geopolitical treasure chest of dirt on her, we’ll all get to spend her term wondering if her decisions are based on the interests of America — or if they are a response to international blackmail.
Imagining a politicized FBI ready to do the bidding of another President Clinton is scarier than a stack of Stephen King books.
But the worst part of a Hillary Clinton presidency would be the continued corruption of the executive branch. Under Obama, we’ve seen the politicization of the IRS (targeting conservative groups), the politicization of the Justice Department (most recently the Loretta Lynch-Bill Clinton airport powwow), and now the politicization of the FBI. We’ll continue to see the erosion of a bureaucracy that serves the people and the proliferation of a bureaucracy that serves the Democrats.
Imagining a politicized FBI ready to do the bidding of another President Clinton is scarier than a stack of Stephen King books. Here are three signs the FBI is already putting politics before justice for Clinton:
1) The FBI tried not to catch Hillary in a lie.
If you’re ever the target of a criminal investigation, don’t bank on law enforcement believing whatever everything you tell them — unless you’re a Clinton.
The narrative Hillary sold the FBI holds water about as well as a slice of swiss cheese. She told them she thought a bracketed “C” was “referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order” which would make perfect sense if it weren’t for the total absence of A, B, and D-Z.
Julian Assange blew this nonsense out of the water on Sean Hannity's show last night, saying Wikileaks has released "thousands of examples, where she [Clinton], herself, has used a c in brackets, and signed it off, and more than 22,000 times that she has received cables from others with this c in brackets. So, it's absolutely incredible for Clinton to lie. She is lying about not knowing what that is."
Not only did the FBI try not to catch her in a lie, they didn't want the media to catch her in one either. Why else is there no transcript or recording of her FBI interview? Comey said he wanted to treat her like anyone else — so where's the recording? Everyone else's interview was recorded.
Now, all the media can do is wonder what exactly she said to the FBI special agents. One thing's for sure, if she told them any of the nonsense she's been telling us about her emails all year, she likely committed a felony or two.
2) Does Obama have ESP?
It was almost like President Obama somehow knew how this would all turn out.
When Comey delivered his "non-indictment indictment" of Hillary Clinton, he stated, "I have not coordinated or reviewed this statement in any way with the Department of Justice or any other part of the government." That seemed questionable given that at the same moment, Hillary Clinton was aboard Air Force One with President Obama about to make a triumphant, I'm-not-going-to-jail landing in North Carolina. Would President Obama be plane-pooling with someone if he thought there was a chance she might be indicted for mishandling classified information?
In June, when President Obama decided to endorse Hillary Clinton for president — even though she was under criminal investigation — did that not send a message to the FBI regarding how he'd like to see the case decided?
What if the president had endorsed a candidate who turned out to be a criminal?
There's no question that the president would have wound up looking supremely ridiculous if Hillary had been indicted.
He sure got lucky.
3) The FBI uses holidays as human shields.
Remember when the FBI interrog- er, I mean, "interviewed" Hillary Clinton? It was the Saturday morning of July 4 weekend. Americans were on boats, at fireworks stores, prepping for cookouts, and engaging in other holiday weekend activities. Nobody was paying attention. News shows were stuck with backups to the backup hosts covering gigantic election news for only a tiny slice of the people who would normally be paying attention.
Then, Comey announced two days later there would be no charges. They must have done a real deep analysis of the answers she gave.
Jump cut to last weekend where the FBI used another holiday as a human shield. This time it was Labor Day watering down the news from the FBI's data dump. Even House Speaker Paul Ryan was floored by how political the move seemed, saying, "I can't believe that they would do what is such a patently political move."
Nothing is scarier than government institutions serving political agendas, but it seems to be a core principle of progressive leadership. Are #NeverTrump Republicans really so obsessed with philosophical purity that they'll allow Hillary Clinton to become president and continue to the politicization of our bureaucracy? What if voting against Trump means an America where we can't see where the FBI ends and the Clinton Foundation begins?
