In this case it does appear that where there is smoke, there will be fire. IMO the FBI is losing patience with AG Lynch and whatever inclination she has (with or without instructions from Obama) to avoid indicting HC on a variety of charges of violations of federal law. The State Department dealt with violations of the federal records act, but there are more serious matters pending.
- If as alleged in the articles below she and her staff repeatedly transmitted Top Secret Special Access Program material on her unclassified and unencrypted e-mail system this is very likely to be a violation of several laws regarding the safeguarding of such material .
- It may well be true that her staff were not cleared for access to this material since such material is often couriered directly to the named recipient (in this case HC) on the basis that uncleared staff will not see it. Giving them unauthorized access would be an additional violation.
- There is an ongoing FBI investigation of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) with regard to money laundering and sale of influence to donors. Discussion of the CGI investigation has now appeared in many places on the internet.
HC and her campaign staff are putting on a brave face but they must be worried sick about these investigations. Bernie waits to see what turns up. People will say that Obama will protect her but even the narcissist prez must realize that the policemen at the FBI know very well how to leak artistically if they are sufficiently angered. HC has a long history of brusque haughtiness in dealing with "the little people" in government. These chickens may be about to come home to roost. pl
