For an administration that would not bother looking into what Lois Lerner did at the IRS with its partisan persecution of certain political foes, and wouldn’t investigate myriad other scandals which inured to the benefit of the president and his allies, there sure doesn’t seem to be any unwillingness to go after Hillary Clinton.
The Obama administration has discovered a chain of emails that Hillary Rodham Clinton failed to turn over when she provided what she said was the full record of work-related correspondence as secretary of state, officials said.
This is noteworthy because she signed a document under penalty of perjury that all of these work related items had been turned over.
I have always assumed that Hillary would be forced out of the race because Obama wants her out in favor of Slow Joe. If Obama wanted to see Hillary get the nomination he would turn a blind eye to this just like he did all of the other scandals. But he isn’t so it is safe to conclude that he doesn’t.
At some point he will likely offer her a deal where he will forgo prosecuting her in return for her dropping out and she will take it. In the interim he just seems to be enjoying watching her twist in the wind. And she has made it easy for him by not being forthcoming and by changing which lies she tells more often than she does pantsuits.
For a woman whose only real qualification for office is that she may have once slept with President Clinton, Hillary has had a nice run (certainly better than the many others sharing that qualification). But I think it is about to come to an end.
