(Freedom.news) With little fanfare and almost no media coverage, President Obama told the country what he intends to do if the FBI happens to recommend the Justice Department indict Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton over her very improper use of an unsecured personal email server to conduct classified State Department business.
That’s right, the president has made his mind up to give Clinton a pass – not that many political observers thought that this “constitutional law lecturer” (he was never a “professor”) was ever going to let the legal system work on its own. Because with Obama it’s Left-wing politics, – first, last and always.
On St. Paddy’s Day, The New York Times ran an “insider” story, reporting that Obama spoke privately to a Democratic National Committee event featuring party donors in Austin, Texas, the previous week. The paper reported:
In unusually candid remarks, President Obama privately told a group of Democratic donors last Friday that Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont was nearing the point at which his campaign against Hillary Clinton would end, and that the party must soon come together to back her.
Translation: She will never be indicted by his administration. Ever.
The Times provided more evidence of the president’s intentions:
Those in attendance described an urgency in Mr. Obama’s tone as he suggested that Democrats needed to come together to prevent an opening for the Republicans, whose leading candidate is Donald J. Trump, to exploit.
But, while he stressed that he was not endorsing either candidate, and that both would make good presidents, Mr. Obama went on to lavish praise on Mrs. Clinton, describing her as smart, tough and experienced, and said that she would continue the work of his administration.
So, there you have it. As has always been the case, our narcissist president is much more interested in preserving his “transformation” of the country – from a free-market, liberty-focused, national security-minded republic to something resembling Venezuela on steroids – than in the rule of law, ensuring that the nation is protected and secure from threats.
Remember, this is the president who has gone after journalists who are merely reporting on important constitutional and civil rights issues – rights violations that this president and his bureaucracy have routinely committed (which makes you wonder why the mainstream press remains loyal to him and to Clinton).
This is the administration that prosecuted the man who saved Iraq (before Obama lost it again) and shored up Afghanistan before successfully leading the CIA – Gen. David Petraeus – for a fraction of what Clinton is alleged to have done. But then, Petraeus was a military man, someone who was definitely not in the upper echelons of the Democratic club.
At this juncture it isn’t clear whether the FBI will even recommend an indictment, perhaps having read, as I did, Obama’s message to Democratic donors as a sign of his intention to let Clinton slide. But then, FBI Director James Comey isn’t political, so if he feels indictments are appropriate, he may recommend them anyway, which would force both Obama and Clinton to defend themselves – one from the White House on his way out, and the other on the campaign trail against the likely GOP nominee, Trump, who would smell blood in the water.
Can’t say I’m surprised by Obama’s decision, just sorely disappointed. But then, that has happened a lot over the past seven years.
