The Washington Post published an exhaustive piece yesterday (3-27) about the ramped up FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private basement internet server, and the possibility that she and her staff committed crimes related to national security.
For many months now, democrats nationwide have been led to believe that this ” security review ” is not a big deal, rather, it’s little more than a right wing witch hunt. That is not, and never has been, true.
Chris Cillizza, the Washington Posts’s ” The Fix ” columnist, followed up the report with a piece of his own titled ” There are 147 FBI agents involved in the Hillary Clinton email investigation. ” Cillizza says in the piece that 147 is an ” eye popping ” number, and that even he didn’t realize just what a truly big deal this is.
This is a no win situation for Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. If she’s indicted the damage is obvious: she’ll be running for president of the United States while under indictment by the US Dept. of Justice.
If she’s cleared of any criminal activity, the damage is still obvious: the right wing dark money ads will run 24/7 for months claiming she was given a pass by Obama’s Dept. of Justice. And it will look like she was, whether or not it’s true.
