It was very clear the moment Loretta Lynch announced she would follow the recommendations of the FBI that Hillary Clinton would not be charged.
The FBI had three and a half hours’ worth of answers about the evidence against her to process. Her statements need to be compared against what other witnesses had told them. Superiors within the Bureau would need to be consulted. There’s no way an investigation as important and complicated as this would point towards closure so soon after the key witness was interrogated. It was already predetermined what the outcome was going to be. Why you ask?
DC Insiders are telling ElectLeaders.com that James Comey had a conversation with Obama and Clinton two weeks back.
Part of Loretta Lynch meeting was assured she would be retained as attorney general. Insiders are saying the reason she would accept the recommendations of the FBI is because Former President Clinton assured her that there would be no charges recommended.
Unless, that is, the interview was a formality. If the decision had already been made not to charge Hillary, subject to a final interview designed to dot some I’s and cross some T’s. Maybe all the feds really wanted from the interview was a splashy bit of news designed to show the public that they had done their due diligence and conducted a “real” investigation, replete with an interrogation of Hillary Clinton, before handing her her “get out of jail free” card.
Another curious bit of timing: Obama’s appearance at Hillary’s rally today in North Carolina was announced last Wednesday\, just two days after the Clinton/Lynch meeting on the tarmac in Phoenix. That was another curious bit of timing. Obama campaigning publicly with someone who’s being investigated by his own DOJ would have been egregiously inappropriate. There was no reason for O to hit the trail for her while an investigation was pending; he could have held off until the convention while waiting for Jim Comey and the FBI to issue their recommendation. The fact that he scheduled the rally when he did and announced it days in advance suggests that Obama already knew that it would be wrapped up by today and that the outcome would be favorable to his party.
The bottom line is once again the Clinton Machine has managed to skirt prosecution by giving of favors, secret meetings and outright lies. Americans now know the FBI can not be trusted, the Attorney General can not be trusted.
