If Hillary Clinton Is Charged With Obstruction Of Justice She Could Go To Prison For 20 Years

In the world of politics, the cover-up is often worse than the original crime.  It was his role in the Watergate cover-up that took down Richard Nixon, and now Hillary Clinton’s cover-up of her email scandal could send her to prison for a very, very long time.  When news broke that the FBI has renewed its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, it sent shockwaves throughout the political world.  But this time around, we aren’t just talking about an investigation into the mishandling of classified documents.  I haven’t heard anyone talking about this, but if the FBI discovers that Hillary Clinton altered, destroyed or concealed any emails that should have been turned over to the FBI during the original investigation, she could be charged with obstruction of justice.  That would immediately end her political career, and if she was found guilty it could send her to prison for the rest of her life.

I have not seen a single news report mention the phrase “obstruction of justice” yet, but I am convinced that there is a very good chance that this is where this scandal is heading.  The following is the relevant part of the federal statute that deals withobstruction of justice

Whoever knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsified, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation or proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States or any case filed under Title 11, or in relation to or contemplation of any such matter or case, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

If Hillary Clinton is sent to prison for 20 years, that would essentially be for the rest of her life.

I have a feeling that the FBI is going to find a great deal of evidence of obstruction of justice in Huma Abedin’s emails.  But unfortunately there is not likely to be a resolution to this matter before November 8th, because according to the Wall Street Journalthere are approximately 650,000 emails to search through…

As federal agents prepare to scour roughly 650,000 emails to see how many relate to a prior probe of Hillary Clinton’s email use,the surprise disclosure that investigators were pursuing the potential new evidence lays bare building tensions inside the bureau and the Justice Department over how to investigate the Democratic presidential nominee.

Metadata found on the laptop used by former Rep. Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife Huma Abedin, a close Clinton aide, suggests there may be thousands of emails sent to or from the private server that Mrs. Clinton used while she was secretary of state, according to people familiar with the matter. It will take weeks, at a minimum, to determine whether those messages are work-related from the time Ms. Abedin served with Mrs. Clinton at the State Department; how many are duplicates of emails already reviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation; and whether they include either classified information or important new evidence in the Clinton email probe.

Of those 650,000 emails, an inside source told Fox News that “at least 10,000” would be of interest to the investigation.

At this point, FBI officials have not even begun searching through the emails, because a search warrant has not been secured yet.  The following comes from CNN

Government lawyers haven’t yet approached Abedin’s lawyers to seek an agreement to conduct the search. Sources earlier told CNN that those discussions had begun, but the law enforcement officials now say they have not.

Either way, government lawyers plan to seek a search warrant from a judge to conduct the search of the computer, the law enforcement officials said.

But the FBI is reportedly already searching a laptop that was co-owned by Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin, and no warrant was necessary for that search because Weiner is cooperating with the FBI.

Many have been wondering why FBI Director James Comey would choose to make such a bold move just over a week until election day.  Surely he had to know that this would have a dramatic impact on the election, and it is unlikely that he would have done so unless someone had already found something really big.  In addition, Comey was reportedly eager to find an opportunity to redeem himself in the eyes of his peers at the FBI.  The following is an excerpt from a Daily Mail article that was written by Ed Klein, the author of a recently released New York Times bestseller about the Clintons entitled “Guilty As Sin“…

‘The atmosphere at the FBI has been toxic ever since Jim announced last July that he wouldn’t recommend an indictment against Hillary,’ said the source, a close friend who has known Comey for nearly two decades, shares family outings with him, and accompanies him to Catholic mass every week.

‘Some people, including department heads, stopped talking to Jim, and even ignored his greetings when they passed him in the hall,’ said the source. ‘They felt that he betrayed them and brought disgrace on the bureau by letting Hillary off with a slap on the wrist.’

According to the source, Comey fretted over the problem for months and discussed it at great length with his wife, Patrice.

He told his wife that he was depressed by the stack of resignation letters piling up on his desk from disaffected agents. The letters reminded him every day that morale in the FBI had hit rock bottom.

So what happens next?

In the most likely scenario, the FBI will not have time to complete the investigation and decide whether or not to charge Hillary Clinton before the election.  This means that we would go into November 8th with this scandal hanging over the Clinton campaign, and that would seem to be very good news for Donald Trump.

However, it is possible that once the FBI starts searching through these emails that they could come to the conclusion very rapidly that charges against Clinton are warranted, and if that happens we could still see some sort of announcement before election day.

In the unlikely event that does happen, we could actually see Hillary Clinton forced out of the race before November 8th.

Once again, this appears to be very unlikely at this point, but it is still possible.

If Clinton was forced to step aside, the Democrats would need to come up with a new nominee, and that process would take time.  In an article later today on The Most Important News I will reveal who I believe that nominee would be.

In such a scenario, the Democrats would desperately need time to get their act together, and so we could actually see Barack Obama attempt to delay or suspend the election.  The legality of such a move is highly questionable, but Barack Obama has not allowed a little thing like the U.S. Constitution to stop him in the past.

This week is going to be exceedingly interesting – that is for sure.

The craziest election in modern American history just keeps getting crazier, and I have a feeling that even more twists and turns are ahead.

It sure seems ironic that Anthony Weiner is playing such a central role this late in the story, and I can’t wait to see what is in store for the season finale.

    No, I’m not American. Seeing all of this mess and childish behavior of your so called candiates for president, I ‘m happy not to be one. So you called me a fool and an idiot. Thank you for that. It doesn’t harm me because of I know where it comes from. That is exactly the behavior of your probably next president Donald. I was always standing behind the USA; worked even many yours for a big American company. Your comments shows exactly how foolish a big part of your Americans are. This is not an honorable election . This one big shame for you. China and Russia will laugh with you. In fact you should not elect both.. Good luck

    Obviously, you’ve never worked with the US government or even understand what is at stake when classified information is released. It’s not like having one of your kids shake a present at Christmas time and guess what it is.
    Release of information that is S // TS or even confidential have different impacts (and not a person) but to the United States as a whole, from serious to grave and absolute negatively against the US.
    So, as for ‘what she done that’s so bad’ she’s played with the national security of the entire US? Trump, he was crass and that by no stretch even compares to putting the country or a person or several lives at stake or even to death.
    And then to imagine that this leak of a !@#!@ could be in charge of even more sensitive information is pathetic.
    You’re obviously not American or just a total fool – a village idiot.

    Newspaper endorsements have been few and far between for Donald Trump this year. Several traditionally conservative papers like The Dallas Morning News and The Cincinnati Enquirer endorsed Hillary Clinton or Libertarian Gary Johnson this year. Others declined to endorse a candidate at all.

    Trump’s latest newspaper endorsement, though, is The Crusader, a newspaper affiliated with the Ku Klux Klan, and that brands itself as “the premier voice of the white resistance.”

    “While Trump wants to make America great again, we have to ask ourselves, ‘What made America great in the first place?'” the endorsement reads, according to the Washington Post. “The short answer to that is simple. America was great not because of what our forefathers did — but because of who our forefathers were. America was founded as a White Christian Republic. And as a White Christian Republic it became great.”

    The support of racists and white nationalists has been a campaign-long problem for Trump. Former KKK leader David Duke has repeatedly and enthusiastically backed the Republican nominee and has even launched a long shot bid for a U.S. Senate seat in Louisiana.

    Former KKK Leader David Duke Says ‘Of Course’ Trump Voters Are His Voters

    “As a United States senator, nobody will be more supportive of his legislative agenda, his Supreme Court agenda, than I will,” Duke told NPR earlier this year.

    When Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep asked Duke whether he thought “Trump voters are your voters,” Duke replied, “Well of course they are. Because I represent the ideas of preserving this country and the heritage of this country, and I think Trump represents that as well.”
    TIME TO PUT YOUR WHITE ROBE AND POINTY HAT ON AGAIN, DANIEL!!! HALLOWEEN IS OVER… BUT TRUMP NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT, SO WEAR IT WITH PRIDE TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR DER FUHRER TRUMP!!!

ALL OF WHICH YOU WOULD KNOW IF YOU PAID ANY ATTENTION AT ALL TO ACTUAL NEWS SOURCES!!! THE STORY HAS BEEN BIG NEWS ALL OVER THE WORLD… FOR MONTHS!!!

    The Democrats are going down yet again, and they are in panic.

    Don’t you think Clinton should give the DNA sample that Danny Williams requested? Since he won’t, it look like Williams is his son.

  • JohnDille

    THE CLINTONS HAVE A NET WORTH OF LESS THAN 40 MILLION… ABOUT 1% OF WHAT TRUMP’S NET WORTH IS. CLEARLY… TRUMP IS A HUNDRED TIMES MORE CORRUPT THAN THE CLINTONS ALLEGEDLY ARE. WHICH IS WHY YOU SUPPORT HIM… YOU LOVE CON ARTISTS AND FASCISTS AND AMERICA HATERS!!!

SO NOW… TRUMP HAS A NEW POLLSTER… AND SHE IS ALSO HIS CAMPAIGN MANAGER… SO SHE DOES NOT DARE TELL TRUMP THE TRUTH… OR HE WILL FIRE HER, TOO… AND THEN REFUSE TO PAY WHAT HE OWES HER!!! TRUMP IS A FASCIST BULLY…. OR JUST ANOTHER RICH REPUBLICAN CAPITALIST… ASSUMING THAT THERE IS SOME DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THOSE TWO TYPES OF JERKS!!!

  • JohnDille

    While the news media has been focused almost exclusively on the innuendo storm around emails from a Clinton aide’s computer, more ugly examples of Trumpism’s impact on our politics have been happening all over the country but largely
    passing under the radar.

    In North Carolina, incumbent GOP Senator Richard Burr, who is up for re-election, joined the trend among Trump Republicans — started by Trump himself — of seemingly
    cheering on gun violence against Hillary Clinton.

    Burr was recorded over the weekend saying, “nothing made me feel better” than seeing a magazine about rifles “with a picture of Hillary Clinton on the front of it,” but he “was a little bit shocked at [sic] that — it didn’t have a bullseye on it.”

    Burr also said, “if Hillary Clinton becomes president, I am going to do everything I can do to make sure four years from now, we still got an opening on the Supreme Court,” and, referring to the stalled Merrick Garland nomination,
    boasted that he is responsible for the “longest judicial vacancy in history.”

    White supremacists have been more energized by Donald Trump than any other modern political candidate and they are active in this election — funding their own pro-Trump ads in several states. In Utah, where independent conservative candidate Evan McMullin is attracting a good deal of Republican support, one white nationalist leader is funding a new robo-call that tries to hurt former special forces and CIA agent McMullin by insinuating that his mother is a lesbian!

    The call says, “Evan has two mommies … His mother is a lesbian, married to another woman. Evan is OK with that.” And it suggests that that McMullin himself is a “closet homosexual.”

    Every aspect of this reeks of the damage Donald Trump has done to our political discourse — a political ad going after a candidate’s MOTHER … rooted in hate … and funded by a white nationalist…

    This is not the American Way we love and fight to defend.

    We’re at the precipice. And the only way to save our country from this sort of extremism is to defeat Trump and Trump Republicans RESOUNDINGLY on Election Day.

  • daniel1154

    Come on Dillie. You know Clinton is a crook, and the Clintons have used government to rob from the American people for years. She is being investigated by the FBI for five different criminal enterprises right now.

    Why do you try to defend a crook?

  • JohnDille

    YOU ARE EXACTLY RIGHT… DONALD TRUMP IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST SCAM ARTISTS AND FRAUDS AND CONMEN IN AMERICAN HISTORY…. NOT COUNTING EVEN RICHER CROOKS LIKE THE WALTON CLAN AND THE KOCH BROTHERS AND OTHER SUCH SUPER RICH RIGHT WING FASCISTS, OF COURSE!!! THE CLINTONS???? THEY ARE LIKE A COUPLE OF FLIES IN A SLAUGHTERHOUSE… RICH RIGHT WING REPUBLICANS ARE THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE!

    Do you condone the criminal enterprise the Clintons have been running?

  • tangascootac

    By their deliberate & self-enriching activities over more than two decades, the Clintons have repeatedly verified themselves as dangerous enemies of these United States of America.

  • tangascootac

    Clinton purposefully & knowingly violated the 1917 Espionage Act and utilized the several private servers as means to escape detection of funds being illegally diverted into the Clinton Foundation, the family’s global money laundering operation. But those servers were hacked, sensitive US information was appropriated by our enemies, and Clinton betrayed the trust of all citizens of this nation.

  • JohnDille

    SO… YOU FAVOR REPLACING THEM WITH FASCISTS, I TAKE IT? JOE CABOT.. FASCIST… NOT JUST A FENCE SITTER WHO LIKES TO BASH FOLKS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FENCE, EVEN THOUGH HE IS TOO GUTLESS TO TAKE EITHER SIDE!!! OR TO DO ANYTHING TO TRY TO REFORM EITHER SIDE!!!

    Donald Trump is refusing to pay his campaign pollster three-quarters of a million dollars

    By Matea Gold October 31, 2016 at 1:00 PM

    Donald Trump’s hiring of pollster Tony Fabrizio in May was viewed as a sign that the real estate mogul was finally bringing seasoned operatives into his insurgent operation.

    But the Republican presidential nominee appears to have taken issue with some of the services provided by the veteran GOP strategist, who has advised candidates from 1996 GOP nominee Bob Dole to Florida Gov. Rick Scott. The Trump campaign’s latest Federal Election Commission report shows that it is disputing nearly $767,000 that Fabrizio’s firm says it is still owed for polling.

    Trump has repeatedly been accused of failing to pay vendors and contractors hired by his real estate empire, including painters, dish washers, real estate brokers and a music store that provided pianos for his Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City. The billionaire has said he pays fairly and that he has withheld payments only when he was dissatisfied with someone’s services.

    Fabrizio was an ally of former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who persuaded a skeptical Trump in the spring that he needed a professional pollster. The abrupt departure of Manafort, who was fired after his close ties to Russia and Vladamir Putin were made public in August, and Trump’s hiring of pollster Kellyanne Conway to be his campaign manager raised questions about whether Fabrizio would stay on. There have also been multiple reports that Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, have rejected Fabrizio’s advice.

    Even though he was hired in May, the campaign did not make any payments to Fabrizio until September, when his firm received nearly $624,000, federal filings show. Trump’s finance reports show that the campaign owes the firm an additional $55,300 on top of the $766,756.67 in debt that it is contesting.

    Despite his issues with Fabrizio, Trump appears to have warmed up to pollsters in general. Since late August, the GOP nominee has tapped four other polling firms to conduct voter surveys, including Conway’s, which has been paid $673,000 through Oct. 19, filings show.
    SO… THAT IS WHY TRUMP’S POLL NUMBERS HAVE BEEN FAIRLY GOOD…. HIS TOP POLLSTER IS ALSO HIS CAMPAIGN MANAGER!!! THE POLLSTER THAT TRUMP STIFFED FOR BIG BUCKS… WAS TELLING TRUMP THE TRUTH… HEY, TRUMP… YOUR POLL NUMBERS SUCK… SO TRUMP FIRED HIM!!! TRUMP ONLY WANTS YES MEN AROUND HIM… AND WOMEN HE CAN GRAB BY THE CROTCH…. AND PEOPLE WITH CLOSE TIES TO RUSSIA, ESPECIALLY TO PUTIN!!! NO WONDER RIGHT WING REPUBLICANS LOVE TRUMP!!! HE IS SUCH A SLEAZY CON MAN… AND RIGHT WINGERS THINK HIGHLY OF CAPITALISTS AND PEOPLE LIKE THAT!!!

  • Joe Cabot

    This is the best political theater of my lifetime. The likelihood is that all of Hillary’s crimes will get the dems/libs/communists so excited that they will turn out in droves and still put her in the White House. The beauty is that she will go with well south of 50% of the popular vote, with her resume of criminal behavior clinging to her like toilet paper on a shoe. Then senate republicans will spend her first term on a witch hunt, leaving her a weak and ineffectual president. Between the Clinton crime family and Donald Trump, the democrat and republican parties are finally on a death watch, at least as currently constructed and managed. That is the best news that we have heard about these two corrupt and disgusting organizations in decades.

  • JohnDille

    DON’T WORRY TOO MUCH, GUUS!!! HUGE NUMBERS OF REPUBLICANS ARE TOTAL IDIOTS… BUT THERE ARE ENOUGH REPUBLICANS WITH ENOUGH SENSE TO KEEP TRUMP OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE… OR TO BLOCK ALMOST EVERYTHING HE DOES IF HE DOES GET ELECTED!!! IF TRUMP WINS, IT WILL BE AN EVEN BIGGER SHOCK TO THE REPUBLICAN ELITE THAN IT IS TO DEMOCRATS… SO A TRUMP WIN WOULD UNITE DEMOCRATS AND THE MAINSTREAM REPUBLICAN ELITE AGAINST HIM… AND IN THAT WAY, THE USA WILL BE… MOSTLY… SAVED FROM TRUMPS TOTAL LUNACY AND INCOMPETENCE!!! OR AT LEAST WE CAN HOPE SO!

  • JohnDille

    YEAH… CLINTON SHOULD NOT HAVE TRIED TO KEEP HER INFORAMTION OUT OF RUSSIAN HANDS BY PUTTING HERE PRIVATE DATA ON HER OWN PRIVATE SERVER!!! SHE SHOULD HAVE PUT ALL THAT INFORMATION ON STATE DEPARTMENT SERVERS… WHERE TRUMP’S BUDDY PUTIN COULD HACK IT FAR MORE EASILY!!! AND CLINTONS SHOULD HAVE A FOUNDATION LIKE TRUMP’S… THAT HAS COLLECTED MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF MONEY… ALLEGEDLY FOR CHARITABLE PURPOSES… BUT HAS USED ALL OF THAT MONEY TO DO GREAT STUFF… FOR TRUMP!!! LIKE PAY FOR ALL THE LAWSUITS BROUGHT AGAINST HIM BY THE VICTIMS OF HIS MANY FRAUDS AND CONS AND SCAMS AND BANKRUPTCIES… AND ABUSES OF WOMEN… AND THE RAPE CHARGES FILED AGAINST HIM BY SEVERAL YOUNG GIRLS!!!

Seeing all of the discussion and especially all these insults who are absolutely unworthy for a person who wants to be the president of the United States. A FAIR discussion about politics is OK. Buit especially Trump goes too far with all of his statements. There is one person lauhging about all of this mess. That’s Putin.. For me Hillary is the best of the worse candidates. This election looks like a bad directed TV soap serie.

    The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the government does not have to release 11-year-old photographs from the suicide of Clinton administration White House lawyer Vincent Foster because it would cause his family pain and intrude on their privacy.

    The unanimous decision makes it more difficult to use a public records law to access federal law enforcement records from autopsies and death scenes. Justices said the privacy rights of survivors must be balanced against the public’s right to information.

    A California attorney had sought the Foster pictures, saying they might prove he was murdered as part of a White House cover-up. There was no reasonable evidence of that, the Supreme Court said.

    “Family members have a personal stake in honoring and mourning their dead and objecting to unwarranted public exploitation that, by intruding upon their own grief, tends to degrade the rites and respect they seek to accord to the deceased person who was once their own,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote.

    Multiple investigations determined that a depressed Foster shot himself in the head at a Civil War-era park in Virginia in 1993. The 48-year-old longtime friend of Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton was handling several personal legal matters for them at the time.

    Foster’s family had joined the government in fighting the release of death scene pictures to attorney Allan Favish. Favish sought the photos under the Freedom of Information Act. He argued that the law did not give any special privacy rights to relatives.

    LETS SEE NOW… VINCE FOSTER DIED… BY SUICIDE… WHAT.. 6 OR 7 YEARS BEFORE GEORGE BUSH JUNIOR GOT US INVOLVED IN THE MIDDLE EAST QUAGMIRE??? I JUST CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THEY PUBLISH YOUR RIGHT WING LIES AND BALONEY!!! THEY SHOULD PUBLISH STORIES LIKE THE ONE JUST BELOW, INSTEAD….
    As a Democratic Party consultant and proud Ukrainian-American, Alexandra Chalupa was outraged last spring when Donald Trump named Paul Manafort as his campaign manager. Chalupa had been following Manafort’s career ever since he popped up in Kiev more than a decade ago as an
    adviser and campaign consultant to the pro-Russian political party in Ukraine.
    As she saw it, Manafort was a key figure in advancing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s agenda inside her ancestral homeland — and she was determined to expose it.

    Soon enough, Chalupa — who was in charge of the Democratic
    National Committee’s “ethnic outreach” efforts — began circulating memos and emails laying out Manafort’s connections. She exchanged messages about him with investigative journalists in Kiev. She even helped organize a rally among Ukrainian-Americans in New Britain, Conn. (Manafort’s hometown). Protesters railed against Manafort as “Putin’s Trojan Horse” and demanded that Trump fire him.

    As she was doing so, Chalupa discovered she herself had become
    a target. On April 20, she got the first of a series of pop-up messages from
    Yahoo security notifying her she had been the victim of a “state sponsored”
    cyberattack. It was an early sign of what would soon become one of the biggest political stories of the year: a massive cyberattack on the Democratic National Committee and other political organizations that U.S. intelligence has now concluded was the work of Russian intelligence. “I was freaked out,” Chalupa told Yahoo News in August. “This was really scary.”

    Since then, FBI agents have questioned Chalupa — and imaged her
    laptop and smartphone — as part of a wide-ranging investigation into the Russian cyberattacks. But even though she has since left the DNC, and Manafort has resigned from the Trump campaign, Chalupa hasn’t abandoned her efforts to publicize what she sees as the overly cozy relationship between the GOP nominee and Moscow. She’s still helping to organize Ukrainian-Americans and other ethnic groups to oppose Trump in the election. And when Trump seemed to question during the Oct. 9 debate whether the Russians were behind any cyberattacks (“Maybe there is no hacking,” he said), Chalupa fired back on Twitter. “Trump doing a great job promoting
    Putin this debate,” she tweeted. Underneath she posted a mock photo of a smug Russian president holding up a toy doll with the smiling face of the GOP
    nominee. — By Michael Isikoff

    Libya, Syria and ISIS is all her and obama’s doing. The two of them have made America unsafe. She wants to bring in more refugees that can not be vetted. Idiots like you still will blame bush and vote for the killery. It is her policies that have caused all the problems.

  • proudamerican

She sold he position of SOS to the big money people that she claims to want to fight against. her and bill will do anything for a dollar. She should not be any where close to the white house and classified information.

  • John:
    I cannot believe they publish your crap. Get informed. I worked in Iraq, I know why Clinton lost over $6 billion during her tenur as Sec. of State. Clinton is the most corrupt person in this race. Google DEATH OF VINCE FOSTER BY ALAN FAVISH in an application to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal. And get informed. “No limits on ignorance” Albert Einstein.

  • JohnDille

    That must have been some of the tens of billions of dollars worth of weapons that the Bush administration gave away to the Afghans! Russia fell in large part because they got bogged down in Afghanistan… and apparently, Bush and Cheney and their Republican allies wanted to bring down the USA by getting us bogged down in Afghanistan… and Iraq… and the entire middle Eastern quagmire. And It looks like Bush has succeeded… America is falling apart in large measure because Bush and his buddies got us so deeply involved over there!!!

  • princess_fiona

    Word from FBI is that State covertly supplied stinger missiles to rebels and one stinger was used to bring down Chinook full of Navy SEALs in Afghanistan. Didn’t detonate, though, so they were able to get Serial # of the missile. Traced back to HRC.

  • guus250

    All this election scandals and especially cowboy Donald Trumps behaviour are disgusting and a country as the USA absolutely unworthy. I understood that Clinton did something wrong with emails. But what was the crime??? Did she gave secrets away?? It looks like that this FBI chief deleberately comes now with this new disgracing of Clinton. An investigation about why he did this must be done. Is Trump behind it, or even Putin?. Americans you are in danger, especially in case Trump will be the next president. I do not say Clinton is the best, but she is at least the best of the worse. . AMERICANS, WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU??? HOW CAN YOU CREATE SUCH A MESS??? WAKE UP!!!!!

    She won’t go to jail nor even be charged. This whole thing is to divert our attention from the next Wikileaks drop, which supposedly involves why everybody is there in the first place (the oil pipelines to Europe) and is alleged to involve current leaders, not just her. It is an attempt to stop the hemorrhage of her base. They won’t necessarily go to Trump, but by not voting, they essentially elect him.
