Damaged Political Aspirations?

img_0498Who would have ever thought that like her husband, Hillary Clinton presidential aspirations would be greatly damaged by a sex scandal. For Bill Clinton, it was his sexual escapades with Monica Lewinsky back in 1996 that ultimately dogged his administration until he was finally impeached by the House of Representatives. Now, nearly 20 years since that sex scandal, another one may ultimately stop his wife from becoming the 45th president of the United States.

Today, in what can only be described as a gigantic bombshell of epic proportions, the FBI reopened the investigation into the 2016 democrat nominee’s private email server investigation. Hillary Clinton’s secret email server was investigated by the FBI for several months and in May 2016 they issued a report clearing her of any wrongdoing. On July 6, Attorney General Loretta Lynch of the Justice Department also cleared Mrs. Clinton of any wrongdoing.

Today’s announcement by the FBI changes all that. With just eleven days before the 2016 presidential election, it is being reported there are new revelations that have surfaced concerning the email investigation into Hillary Clinton. The revelations have to do with new information pertaining to the sexting scandal of Anthony Weiner, aka “Carlos Danger.” He happens to be the husband of Hillary Clinton’s closest adviser, Huma Abedin.

If there is any classified information found on any mobile device belonging to Huma Abedin or her husband, that is a federal crime. Ironically, a sex scandal may not only have underminded the political aspirations of Bill Clinton back in 1996, it may also damage the political aspirations of his wife some 19 years later. It just goes to show you that what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

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.
