  • She lied to the FBI, and there are people sitting in prison for doing that very same thing. If she gets away with this it takes away all the validity of our judicial system! She has been lying for years and she is not gong to change now!

    • Nobody is mentioning the obvious — regardless how the election turns out, on the morning of January 20, during his last few hours in office, Obama will issue a pardon to Hillary. It doesn’t matter whether she has yet been found guilty of anything. Remember how newly installed President Gerald Ford issued a pardon to Richard Nixon for any and all crimes he MIGHT have committed in connection with Watergate (impeached [i.e. charged] in the House but not yet convicted in the Senate nor in any court). Ford said he was doing that in order to clear the case out of his presidency so he could concentrate on more important matters instead of taking up all his time responding to subpoenas for documents etc. Obama will use the same excuse when he issues a pardon to Clinton. If she won the election he will pardon her in order to let her focus on looking ahead to govern the nation; if she lost the election he will pardon her anyway to stop the flow of information that would hurt the legacy of Secretary Clinton which would also hurt his own legacy.

      • Watergate is manini compared to all the corruption by the Clintons over the years and all the lies. The people of Haiti are being used by the Clintons. It is unbelievable how so many people can over look the collusion from the very top of the federal government. I’ve been a democrat and voted party lines but not this election.

    • And what lies are those? No, it is generally the republicans who lie. Say have you found those WMDs yet? No one ever thought someone would fly jets into buildings? Wake up and start questioning the right for all their stupid claims.

      Perhaps the biggest lie of republicans is that Deficits don’t matter and you can balance the budget by increasing wasteful spending and reducing revenue. Have you ever heard anything so silly? Republican politicians should be made to give back their compensation for the past 8 years because they just have not done their jobs.

      • Will you drop your fetish with WMD. The suspicion was bipartisan:

        “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”
        President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998.

        “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”
        Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998

        “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.”
        Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998.

        “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.”
        Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

        • Thanks Windward Side for pointing out the truth! However,I fear your efforts in righting Boots is a……..failed effort! He is a “Dug-In”, Entrenched to the very last drop Democratic supporter,who’ senses has failed constantly on the grips of Reality. Now, how can anyone in their “Right ” mind support a person like Hillary Clinton?

          It simply escapes my understanding of the Universe!
          Wait! wait! Let me attain enlightenment and assume the Lotus position and hum my mantra for the day! Booooooooots,Ummmmm, Booooooots Ummmmmm, Boooooots Ummmmm.
          Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I love it!

        • Oh.Oh Seems like the “Mod Squad” is hot on my trail again ! I enjoy playing these characters! Sooo Funny! Haaaaaaaaa!

        • Well I only asked for lies of Hillary. Never said that democrats were perfect but it were stupid republicans who just had to march off to war. Notice you didn’t provide significant lies of sweet Hillary. Should be easy to do? But I suspect any lies will be around her dumb email. Couldn’t care less if she lied about her email. I am more concerned if she lies us into another war like GW.

    • As a government employee, she willfully failed to ensure her email was secure by using a government email system.

      She has only her own utter incompetence to blame, total loser, legend in her own mind.

      Book her Danno!!!!

      • well, so what? What has been divulged? Anything? I suspect her email was probably more secure than the governments email. The only people who don’t know what is in secure mail is the American public. I am sure Russia, NK, etc. probably all know.

        I have yet to see how she is “incompetent”. She sure is better qualified to be president than some old con artist.

        • “Con Artist”?
          OK,Boots I’ll bite! “What has Hillary done in the Last 30 years”?
          I suggest you stay away from the Iran Nuke deal,but really what(substantially) has she done?
          Here’s another one,why is it,with the Democrats in control in Washington,& why your hero “Mr.Lewdness” himself, aka Barrack Obama and “Corrupted”Hillary can’t seem to normalize foreign relations with Russia? They are always blaming the Russians for most of their failures in the middle east!Not to mention those damn leaked emails,whom from the get go were blaming the Russians and yet have no proof?

          It wasn’t them who created the mass migration,the European countries are now regretting. Or Drawing that infamous “Redline”. Or destablizing Iraq ,thus creating ISIS. This is Incompetence!

      • The Republicans and the Tea Party have investigated Hillary’s emails for years, with numerous Congressional hearings, yet have not found anything incriminating. These insinuations by Republicans and the Tea Party that Hillary is hiding something, and therefore crooked, has been an on-going part of their campaign propaganda of Hillary character assassination. More importantly, an immediate investigation of all of Trump’s tax returns from years past. The disclosures in Trump’s tax returns will prove how sincere and honest he is with the American people. Trump transparency and disclosure now.

  • From the LA Times:

    Investigators came across the emails while investigating whether Weiner violated federal law when exchanging sexually explicit texts with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, one official said….The emails were not to or from Clinton, and contained information that appeared to be more of what agents had already uncovered, the official said, but in an abundance of caution, they felt they needed to further scrutinize them.

    There is literally nothing here. We have a bunch of emails from Huma Abedin to other people. The FBI has not read them yet and has no idea what they’re about. At first glance—presumably from scanning the subject lines and names of recipients—they appear to be duplicates of stuff we’ve already seen. And it will likely take several weeks before we know anything more.

    There. Is. Literally. Nothing. Here.

    What was Jim Comey thinking when he wrote his suggestive but ambiguous letter about these emails to eight congressional Republicans—each of them practically slavering for Hillary Clinton’s scalp—11 days before an election? And all of it based on absolutely nothing—a fact that he very carefully avoided admitting. Has he gone completely around the bend?

    • You’re just drinking the koolaid. She’s not selling us to foreign interests? She did so well in Benghazi ? I am not a trump supporter, but at least I want the facts.

        • The FBI did not reveal details of their investigation. So unless that statement came from the FBI, you’re just another example of Gruber’s assessment of the American public.

        • You tune out anything, anything, critical of this totally self interested, self serving dishonest person. Koolaid means you can’t hear any criticism. She’s disgusting. Trump? Well, not like able to me either
          But at least I read both

    • Ah, the old “vast right wing conspiracy” huh?

      The WikiLeaks emails showed Team Clinton knew they had a big mess on their hands and Hillary Clinton’s closest advisors were frustrated by how she created the problem and then kept making it worse.

      I suggest you get away from the mindset that democrats can do no wrong, and if they are caught red-handed, they must somehow be the victim of a “vast right wing conspiracy.”

      • Sadly democrats can do wrong but nothing compared to republicans. I am just tired of all the accusations by republicans against democrats which turn out to be nothing. Republicans should be ashamed of themselves for abandoning republican principles and instead embracing big intrusive government. Goldwater must be spinning in his grave.

        • I’ll take your desperate attempt to change the subject away from Hillary Clinton’s deplorable and dangerous judgement to run all her email through a homebrew server in her basement instead of using government servers and then lie about it as a “vast right wing conspiracy” a white flag of surrender on your part.

        • As usual Kalheo, you are just wrong. But I appreciate your stand to defend far right witch hunts. It would be better though if you would offer to pay for them yourself instead of sticking the tax payer for it. What a waste.

  • The corrupt Democrat Party believes that if you lie, bribe everybody, intimidate others, use your political power to push agencies around and you will be in the drivers seat. Unfortunately for them, this is America, not China and when you roll in the mud, it sticks, and the corrupt Democrat Party is particularly populated with sociopaths. HilLIARy is the queen of slime, she must not win, she will not win. #NeverHillary

  • Comey only trying to protect his hind end lest more dirt is disclosed in the current digging relating to closing the initial Hillary investigation which he closed prematurely against his veteran staff agents demands. With the new revelations, he is contemplating more dirt that will disclose his close ties to the insiders who are calling the shots. Better to be on the fore front instead of the rear and smell the ku kai smeared across his face?

  • Now it is time to really know why other countries people resent USA. Too many hidden facts that even the countries security won’t bring to light. MONEY TALKS

  • We are in the Twilight Zone.

    I have watched in disbelief as the OBAMA Administration have put on this circus show ,purely entertaining, for TV viewers. A corrupt/incompetent State Dept.(Bengazhi), Attorney Gen (Lynch, meeting with Billy in a plane talking about golf,kids for 39mins while his wife was being investigated), and Keystone Cop FBI (Comey). AG & FBI appointed by Obama. BTW.

    When Obama was questioned about his opinion he mentioned Hillary use her ‘conscience’ in moving forward. Well………

    Comey has given the FBI a horrible reputation by his decisions, however it’s the agents within who are ‘trusted’ and have forced Comey to come forward and state the obvious. A high school student, given all the facts, could make a determination that Hillary broke the laws.

    We need to re establish the trust in the FBI, State Dept. and Attorney General’s office. Hopefully, this is a start.

  • IMO what is troubling is the fact that HRC used her own private server and not state.gov server to conduct official business regardless if they were confidential or not. Imagine if all our federal employees were to do the same thing by not using the government server for official business. No problem or big problem? Saw on TV last night about a Petty Officer 1st Class submariner who was sentenced to 1 year in jail for taking 6 cell phone pictures in an unauthorized area of his submarine.

  • Makes no difference to me! Sent my absentee ballot in 2 days ago. Thus, If they indict her well, if the convict her, so, if she is sentenced, she get off due to her illness? The scenario has been scripted in case it goes bad for her. Remember her slip!
