Accomplished author Ed Klein, who has an superb track record for unearthing scoops regarding the Clinton Crime Family (which is the term they prefer, I hear) has another breaking report regarding Hillary’s illegal bathroom email server. Which was, I understand, a magnet for both spies and flies.
As context, please recall Hillary’s response to the question she was asked during a recent Democrat debate, to wit, whether she would step down if indicted for various crimes related to her email server, mishandling classified information, and/or other criminal activities related to the Clinton Global Graft Foundation.
She responded, “Oh for goodness … that’s not going to happen. I’m not even answering that question.”
Well, she better get ready to answer that question, because the investigation of Hillary’s email scandal is reaching a climax.
My sources tell me that the Justice Department is close to empaneling a grand jury and deciding whether to grant statutory immunity to Huma Abedin, Hillary’s closest adviser.
That would force Huma to testify under oath and face perjury charges and jail time if she lies. I’m also told that Hillary herself will most likely be forced to testify.
Klein indicates that FBI director James Comey is inching ever closer to a recommendation to indict Hillary Clinton, a political hot potato handed to Attorney General Loretta Lynch the likes of which the political system hasn’t seen since Nixon.
My sources say the likelihood is that Lynch will not make that decision herself. Instead, she’ll probably appoint a special counsel to make the decision. That will get the Obama administration off the hook and avoid charges of a conflict of interest or, even worse, obstruction of justice.
Klein offers a series of intriguing questions that this scenario raises, the first four of which are:
1. Could Hillary run for president if she is under criminal indictment?
2. Would she step down voluntarily?
3. Could the Democratic [sic] Party make her step down?
4. Who would take her place as the party’s presidential standard-bearer?
Maybe the Democrats could run someone to the left of Crazy old Marxist Bernie Sanders. Say, Obama’s baseball buddy Raul Castro, perhaps. (For more from the author of “FBI May Seek Immunity for Huma to Nail Hillary, Not That There’s Anything Wrong With That” please click HERE)
