Putting Out The Fire?

Since March 12, 2015,  the Obama White House had continued to describe the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal as one that wasn’t criminal in nature. They described it as a tedious personal matter that didn’t involve the executive branch of the federal government.  In one press conference White House spokesperson Josh Earnest used the term, “personal” 21 times to distance the White House from any involvement between them and the former Secretary of State wrongdoings

Oddly, just two days after Hillary Clinton locked up the democrat nomination for president the White House spokesperson suddenly changed his tune and admitted the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton was in fact, “criminal.”

Hours after this press conference, the president had a scheduled meeting with his Attorney General Loretta Lynch at 3:30pm. She and the president are the only people that can stand in the way of a FBI criminal complaint against Hillary Clinton. Why would the White House describe the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton as a personal matter back  in 2015 and now refer to it as criminal matter today? It may suggest the heat may be getting a little hotter in the White House for them to bear. In order for them to turn down the heat, they need to put out the fire. The person who provides that fire is Hillary Clinton.
