Obama's Justice Department refused to investigate Clinton Foundation

We continue learning more about the “dark businesses” of Bill and Hillary Clinton, but probably we will never know about the most scandalous operations thanks the “famous” emails that were deleted in the server of the Clinton family.

The pending question is: How many hours of the Hillary’s trips during the time she was U.S. Secretary of State were official activities of the government? It looks like Hillary used part of her trips for private businesses.

By the way, when Clinton resigned as Secretary of State, a political analyst in a PBS-News panel said that Hillary was tireless traveler, but the results of her trips were not much.

Earlier this year, the FBI attempted to convince the Justice Department to investigate the Clinton Foundation for giving donors favors and political access in exchange for donations.

Hillary Clinton, her aides, and enablers may have engaged in deliberate obstruction of justice. The problem is that emails are hard to erase from everywhere they are replicated, as is now being discovered.

Obama's Department of (Social) Justice (and Progressive Narrative Enforcement) torpedoed the original Hillarygate investigation, suspiciously soon after the meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton on the tarmac. My guess is that Bill said something like this: "we were promised immunity by Obama."

There are too many people involved, though. The genie is out of the bottle.

From the WSJ:
New details show that senior law-enforcement officials repeatedly voiced skepticism of the strength of the evidence in a bureau investigation of the Clinton Foundation, sought to condense what was at times a sprawling cross-country effort, and, according to some people familiar with the matter, told agents to limit their pursuit of the case. The probe of the foundation began more than a year ago to determine whether financial crimes or influence peddling occurred related to the charity.
Some investigators grew frustrated, viewing FBI leadership as uninterested in probing the charity, these people said. Others involved disagreed sharply, defending FBI bosses and saying [Deputy Director Andrew] McCabe in particular was caught between an increasingly acrimonious fight for control between the Justice Department and FBI agents pursuing the Clinton Foundation case.
According to a person familiar with the probes, on Aug. 12, a senior Justice Department official called Mr. McCabe to voice his displeasure at finding that New York FBI agents were still openly pursuing the Clinton Foundation probe during the election season. Mr. McCabe said agents still had the authority to pursue the issue as long as they didn’t use overt methods requiring Justice Department approvals.
The Justice Department official was “very pissed off,” according to one person close to Mr. McCabe, and pressed him to explain why the FBI was still chasing a matter the department considered dormant.

We’ve all seen this movie before. Whitewater, The Vince Foster Affair, Travelgate; the Clinton’s are fodder for more yarns than the James Bond Franchise.

They’ve been in politics for decades and their attackers never seem to tire of writing books ‘hinting’ at dark, backroom deals, corruption and murder.

There’s simply no way they can’t be guilty, right? Yet they’re still here. Ever after Ken Starr’s epic fight to bring them down, they’re still standing. They even impeached Bill – but he got off on a technicality; the Republican led Senate failed to convict.

If you’re a Darwinist, we should probably send the Hillary to the White House just because the Clinton’s have survived and proven their political fitness in the process.

The problem with all of the diehard supporters of Hillary is that the Clinton’s mendacity rubs off on anyone blindly defending them. Can anyone honestly say that all the support is not bought and paid for by the foundation? Even if not true, why would anyone cast their own credibility into the pot to mix with such obvious ethical miscreants?

After 6+ years of Obama apologists, misguided sycophants and ideological lemmings, one would think the country is sick and tired of the political shenanigans, the stonewalling and the utter lack of transparency despite protestations to the contrary.

Most people when confronted as a suspect in an act of criminality would simply say “I didn’t do that. I’m not guilty of that!” Interesting that the Clinton’s and acolyte’s response is a predictable, “where’s the evidence?” In other words, parse the words, “I’m really guilty, but you can’t prove it!”

What I find surprising, and hopeful, is the fact that it’s not just the conservative media looking into and reporting on the Clinton Foundation scandal. The NY Times, Reuters, ABC, etc. are doing their own investigation and reporting.

This reminds me of how Watergate got started, only the Metro Section of the Washington Post initially reporting on the break-in and then following up with the burglars connection to the Republican National Committee and then linking to the Nixon Campaign Committee and then linking to the White House.  By the time the links got to the White House the story was being reported, and investigated, by multiple national media.

If you’re the Clintons and have spent your entire lives in government or seeking to influence it, except for a few minutes working for the Rose Law Firm of Little Rock, AR (and hating every one of those minutes), then you have to figure out a way to make money in government. After all, everyone needs to make his pile. Right?

I’m a little surprised that nobody has ever looked at the Bill’s tenure as the Governor of Arkansas. After all, antics such as those practiced by a subsidiary of Rosatom (the Russian atomic energy agency) in pursuit of a global role cornering uranium at a time when the Hillster was serving as Secretary of State and central to decisions about selling strategic U.S. resources, alongside beaucoup millions in donations to the Clinton Foundation and a $500,000 Moscow speech for her are not depths of finesse that just appear. They usually start in the crib.

Outraged critics have spent time and energy trying to convince Democrats that the Clintons are corrupt. The Democrats have known all along and it just has not mattered.  What does it have to do with the issues they ask.

Corrupt Democrats who elect these folks are just as guilty as the Clintons. I remember when Senator Joe Lieberman made a speech critical of Clinton and was widely congratulated for it. It was right before the impeachment and Senators Moynihan and Robert Kerry congratulated Lieberman. Then all three voted not guilty.

A crime boss might tell you that creating an organized crime machine isn’t the hardest part. Perfect crimes are committed every day. The hardest part of maintaining a criminal enterprise may be in maintaining the discipline to cover your tracks and execute the plan perfectly every time.

Like every organization, I imagine that the task of not getting caught relies on soldiers not making errors. Eventually someone in the crew is bound to slip up or something unexpected turns up, that could not have been planned for. A tax record here, a journal entry there. Not everyone involved in the caper may be as disciplined with their books.

Law enforcement investigation relies on applying pressure continuously, with hope of forcing an error in a well thought out enterprise, to bring down the whole house of cards. Some bosses conduct business their entire lives and never get caught.

Can the Clintons?

I look at Hillary Clinton as a Battleship.  Large, formidable, heavily armored and capable of putting out a lot of firepower through her sycophants and acolytes.

However, she’s old, leaky, and she’s taken a number of hits, some of which were torpedo hits below the waterline.  She’s not unsinkable and she’s taking on water but she seems to be able to pump that water back over the side as fast as it comes in.  At the same time some of her bulkheads have become weak and it might not take much for them to give way and send her to the bottom.

I’ll be watching those who have been and continue to be her staunchest defenders, paying careful attention to the strength of their defense of her, the words they use, the fervor with which they defend her.

At some point, if her candidacy is to fail, if the scandals are going to sink her, it will be these defenders who will have to give up, to stop bailing her out.  When I see signs of that happening I’ll know she’s toast.

What we do know is that the Clinton’s are forever tainted. Too many things happened at the same time resulting in certain donors and big payers for speeches getting some special favor that only Hillary could have helped with.  Sure, just a random coincidence, and pigs really can fly.  I’ll grant 1 coincidence – maybe, but all of these “coincidences”?

The only variable is if there are enough low information voters who will, once again buy, the “Right Wing Conspiracy” theory for all of these or will believe them when they discredit the messenger and try to utterly destroy his reputation.

Maybe, but I also wonder when the ever compliant Democrats are going to find some guts and develop a bit of disgust at the Clinton’s business as usual.
