    Do you think Attorney General Loretta Lynch will indict Hillary? (see poll at the end)

    "A week ago, on Jan. 5, 2016, former federal prosecutor Joseph DiGenova said some stunning things on the Laura Ingraham radio show:

    • Hillary Clinton could be indicted in the next 60 days.
    • She will not complete her presidential campaign and will not be Democratic Party’s nominee.
    • There will be massive revolt inside the FBI if Attorney General Loretta Lynch refuses to charge Hillary.

    DiGenova is a former federal prosecutor, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, who led the prosecution of Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, and was the Principal Assistant U.S. Attorney during the prosecution of attempted Reagan assassin, John W. Hinckley. In December 1992, he was appointed Independent Counsel in the Clinton Passport File Search matter. In 2007, Mr. diGenova was retained by the New York State Senate to investigate then-Gov. Eliot Spitzer in the Troopergate matter.

    Here’s the transcript of what DiGenova said on Laura Ingraham Show:

    “[Hillary Clinton’s] biggest problem right now is the FBI [investigation into her emails on an unsecured network], they’re not going away. They have reached a critical mass in their investigation of the Secretary [of State Hillary] and all of her senior staff, and it’s going to come to a head, I would suggest, in the next 60 days.

    And I predict Hillary will not make it to the finish line. She’s not gonna be able to complete her campaign. This criminal investigation must, out of necessity, focus on her and all the people around her. And if [FBI Director] Jim Comey is doing his job, which I expect him to do as an honorable man, she cannot be the nominee of the Democratic Party. She’s going to have to be charged with a crime.

    It’s going to be a very complex matter for the Department of Justice, but they’re not going to be able to walk away from it. She and her staff have committed numerous federal crimes involving the negligent and improper handling of classified information. There are now over 1,200 classified emails, and that’s just for the ones we know about from the State Department. That doesn’t include the ones that the FBI is in fact recovering from her hard drives. She has definitely made false statements under oath both in interviews and on Capitol Hill.

    She [Hillary] has not yet been interviewed by the FBI in their investigations. That will be the final step in their investigations. The Bureau has so much information about criminal conduct by her and her staff that there is no way that they walk away from this. They’re gonna make a recommendation that people be charged, and then [Attorney General] Loretta Lynch is going to have a decision of a lifetime.

    I believe that the evidence that the FBI is compiling will be so compelling that unless she [Lynch] agrees to the charges, there will be a MASSIVE revolt inside the FBI which she will not be able to survive as an attorney general. It will be like Watergate. It will be unbelievable. The evidence against the Clinton staff and the Secretary [Hillary] is so overwhelming at this point that if in fact she [Lynch] chooses not to charge Hillary, they will NEVER be able to charge another federal employee with the negligent handling of classified information. The intelligence community will not stand for that. They will fight for an indictment, and they are already in the process of gearing themselves to basically revolt against the attorney general if she [Lynch] refuses to bring charges.

    There is a massive breach between the intelligence community, the military community at the Department State, and the national security superstructure inside the intelligence community. There is vitriol of an intense amount developing. You can hear it in your conversations with people in the intelligence community. They will fight to the death if the attorney general attempts to bury this case. It’s going to be very, very ugly for her, and it’s going to be an awful ending to the Obama administration, but one which they richly deserve.”..."

    I wonder how a revolt will play out. Just what could that process be --airing it out to the American people? Holder got away with murder --with the full support of Obama. The President and Lynch better not impede justice again. Wishful thinking on my part --I know.

    ...maybe not this time, I hope. :)

    We're long overdue for a shake-up within the 'establishment' and a wake-up call for true citizens.

    Right you are there. It would certainly boost the confidence of real Americans to see justice prevail. If she gets away with a slap of the wrist after all she has done....

    It's funny how her perspective may change from "Darn it. I didn't get to be the nominee (or President)" to "Oh no! I'm going to Federal prison."

    Do you think that people will resign good-paying jobs over a political issue when the economy is on the edge of a recession? Even if Clinton is guilty, how do you put a former First Lady in prison?

    It depends on how bad Obama wants to be secretary general of the UN. Bill Clinton wants that job also.

    I would gladly swallow one whole for an indictment and a trial.

    I think that she is guilty under the law of many things but I think that she walks because she was once First Lady, although she will have to retire from public life.

    Your thoughts?

    First, I don't believe she will ever be indicted. If she is, she will plead it out or Obama will pardon her if he is still president. But she will not retire from public life. Democrats love their crooks and liars. Bill's plea deal didn't hurt him with democrats at all.

    By Bill, I know that you mean the white Bill Cosby--the black guy gets indicted and the white goat is left free.

    On the issue of Hillary's stupidity, Dick Morris, a political consultant, says that the FBI will leak the whole report and that alone will force Hillary out of the primaries.

    Who was it who said last night that with Hillary it would be White House and Court House?

    It just simply isn't going to happen. The GOP and Dems are both looking at the possibility of brokered conventions (if...if Sanders can get it going) and this won't help the larger picture. DC is rife with corruption and we, as a nation, have become the exact things we rebelled against in 1774. No way that Secretary Clinton receives an indictment on this, no matter how bad Matt Drudge would like for it to happen.

    It would not surprise me if he re-declared his candidacy.

    "I'm told Chuck Graham, state senator, is here. Stand up Chuck, let 'em see you. Oh, God love you. What am I talking about. I'll tell you what, you're making everybody else stand up, though, pal."

    —Biden, telling Missouri state senator Chuck Graham to stand up at a campaign rally, before realizing that Graham is confined to a wheelchair.


    ...
    and 9 more great gaffes by Uncle Joe at TIME.

    I think this is probably the most likely. When their career/retirement is placed in jeopardy they will fall in and toe the official line regardless of the truth.

    I believe he thinks that , but I believe politics will prevail. The entire Obama justice department, including the FBI, has become nothing more than Obama's personal political machine. They will do whatever he says.
