From the first, these columns have argued that the whitewash of the Hillary Clinton–emails caper was President Barack Obama’s call — not the FBI’s, and not the Justice Department’s. (See, e.g., here, here, and here.) The decision was inevitable. Obama, using a pseudonymous email account, had repeatedly communicated with Secretary Clinton over her private, non-secure email account.

These emails must have involved some classified information, given the nature of consultations between presidents and secretaries of state, the broad outlines of Obama’s own executive order defining classified intelligence (see EO 13526, section 1.4), and the fact that the Obama administration adamantly refused to disclose the Clinton–Obama emails. If classified information was mishandled, it was necessarily mishandled on both ends of these email exchanges.

That is why such an indictment of Hillary Clinton was never going to happen. The latest jaw-dropping disclosures of text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his paramour, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, illustrate this point.

‘On Protecting Obama’

The deep state’s road block factory staffed by Dems and journalists is working 24/7 because they are terrified that American public will come to realize the meaning of the saying ‘all roads do lead to ‘Rome’. When that destination is arrived at the whole corrupt putrid bunch will realize that their dreams (they thought via Hillary it was a done deal) of the progressive version of a ‘1000 Year Reich’ will come crashing to an end. Or to put it another way ….”If that fucking bastard wins we all swing from nooses”.
