I note that the FBI, having disgraced itself in its handling of the Clinton e-mail scandal, is now 'looking into' newly discovered e-mails on a device or devices shared by Huma Abedin and her husband, himself-disgraced Anthony Weiner.
Inevitably, Hillary Clinton is 'confident' that the FBI will not recommend any charges. Nevertheless, I have three questions.
- If there's enough evidence to charge someone with criminal wrongdoing, will Huma Abedin take the fall for Hillary, in the confident expectation that a presidential pardon will rapidly be forthcoming? And, if such a pardon is not rapidly forthcoming, will she 'do a Samson' and bring down everybody else with her - or will she have a fatal 'accident' before then?
- Will Anthony Weiner use the newly 'discovered' e-mails to work a deal for himself, avoiding prosecution for his own misdeeds by threatening to 'do a Samson' on or to everyone else involved, unless he gets a free pass?
- So far, the only e-mails Wikileaks has released have been to and from members of staff of Hillary Clinton's campaign. The election is now less than two weeks away. When will Wikileaks begin releasing Hillary's own e-mails, and any incriminating evidence they contain?
