Clinton under investigation: What does Donald Trump know?

Written By | Oct 29, 2016

WASHINGTON, October 28, 2016 — If you are keeping score, one more for Donald Trump. In August 2015, Trump predicted that Huma Abedin and her husband, Anthony Weiner, were a risk to America’s National Security.

We might presume he was right about Abedin and Weiner, as FBI Director James Comey has reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails—not because of anything new uncovered by Wikileaks, but because of emails the FBI found on the personal laptop of Human Abedin, and which she shared with her disgraced husband.

In a letter to Congress, Comey said that the emails “appear to be pertinent to the investigation,” but said he didn’t know yet if the information was significant. FBI investigators are trying to determine whether the emails contain “classified information.”

However, the presence of classified information is not the only problem here. State Department employees are not to use personal devices or share those devices with anyone—particularly with someone who does not have equal or higher security clearance. And Clinton may have been sharing information with Abedin that she did not have clearance for. Clinton said, after all, she did not know how to determine if that little “c” means classified or not.

This entire episode raises some pertinent questions:

  1.  Why were the mainstream media so quick to dismiss the Clinton email scandal in the first place, then go crazy over Trump’s talk—crude, certainly, but still just talk—about being able to make passes at receptive women?
  2. Does Clinton want the Weiner files released so that the mainstream media will focus on Weiner’s salacious texts and pictures, ignoring her ongoing “I will do what I want, how I want” Clinton Foundation issues? Will she claim, “see, the Weiner files are just about sex and I’m not involved.”
  3. How can anyone vote for Hillary Clinton with what we now know about that Clinton Foundation piggybank and the blatant disregard that Clinton et al. have for our national security, Catholics, blacks, you, me and the rest of America.

Vote for Evan McMullin, vote for Jill Stein or Gov. Gary Johson or vote for Trump, because, as Michael Moore says, “he will be the Molotov cocktail thrown at our political system.”

McMullin, Stein, Johnson: How not to waste your vote 

And it will feel good to upset the correct applecart that is Washington, DC politics.

True to her past behavior, Clinton steps back behind her wall of silence, refusing to comment on the new investigation. She knows one thing Trump does not: If you ignore it, the media will let it go away. That may be another reason why she wants whatever has been uncovered from the Abadin-Weiner laptop released. It gives her the chance to ignore, ignore, distract and reframe the whole mess to be about Weiner’s fetishes.

Trump almost perfectly nailed how the lax security of her trusted aide Huma Abedin would be one of Clinton’s downfalls. He took the fight even further when he said:

“I don’t like Huma going home at night and telling Anthony Weiner all of these secrets.”

Trump continues to drive home the point that Clinton is unfit for the Oval Office. “How can Hillary Clinton be briefed on this unbelievably delicate information when it was just proven that she lied,” he said, pointing to some 33,000 emails she deleted from her private server her lawyers deemed them personal in nature.

“I don’t think it’s safe to have Hillary Clinton being briefed on national security because the word will get out,” he said.

And that is the second time he was right this week!
