LOS ANGELES, August 18, 2015 — The conservative blogosphere exploded with glee at the news that Hillary Clinton’s email server was being turned over to the FBI. Finally, she would face justice. Her stone wall was cracking, and she would be trading in her multi-colored pantsuits for an orange jumpsuit. After over two decades of lawlessness, Hillary would finally be brought to justice.
This view is at best wishful thinking and at worst delusional. Hillary Clinton is not going to prison, not now, not ever.
She is far from innocent. Of the many scandals that have swirled around her since 1992, there is no way she has been falsely accused in every single one of them.
No, she did not murder Vince Foster. Yes, Chelsea Clinton is the biological daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton. By giving the slightest credence to the rarest of nutty accusations, Hillary’s team has successfully linked the conspiratorial with the realistic. Hillary did fire members of the White House Travel Office and falsely smear their reputations so she could install her own people.
In Hillary’s world, anyone not in her deepest inner circle is a potential conspirator against her. She may actually believe in the “vast right-wing conspiracy” because she is every bit as paranoid as Richard Nixon was. That is what drove her to keep her correspondence on a separate server. She is a control freak. She needs total control over everything in her life, lest an enemy wound her. She cordons off the media using real rope. She covers up legal Benghazi mistakes with a phony narrative about a video rather than just admit she messed up.
She cannot face the fact that her secure server was anything but secure. China and Russia may have plenty of ammunition to blackmail her when it is most advantageous for them to do so. She gave real conspirators ammunition against her and America. She preferred this rather than come to terms with the fact that her GOP political enemies are really just opponents who disagree with her.
Nevertheless, she will never be held accountable. She is not going to spend one day behind bars.
Hillary’s server was taken by the FBI for the purpose of concealing, not revealing. The FBI works for the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice works for President Barack Obama. Having the FBI seize the server creates the appearance of action when none is being taken.
Those who believe Obama is trying to kneecap Hillary are mistaken. While the animosity between the Clintons and Obamas is well documented, their relationship is now parasitically binding. If she goes down, she takes everyone including him down with her. Obama is not selling her out. He is protecting her. He no longer trusts that she is competent enough to protect either of them from harm. Her private server must contain correspondence that he wants hidden.
By bringing the server into the White House, his FBI can make sure it is scrubbed clean.
If by some bizarre quirk of fate Mrs. Clinton does face criminal charges, she can always receive a presidential pardon from Obama. His critics would scream and howl, but he has never cared about opinions different from his own. His legacy would not be affected. He has too many lapdog supporters clinging to the notion that his legacy is whatever he says it is.
In the course of the Obama presidency, innocent people have died. If Fast and Furious did not sink Obama, nothing will. If Benghazi can be dismissed as a partisan witch hunt, then anything and everything Obama does is acceptable. If he wants Hillary protected, and he does, then Hillary is protected.
Life is not fair. The liberal media is biased. Bad people can do bad things and get away with it. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are above the law. Evidence does not matter.
New Fox News polls show that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe that Hillary Clinton intentionally lied about her servers. What the poll does not ask is if this matters. Hillary supporters know she is flawed. They do not care. Hillary supports abortion rights and other social issues. Her supporters will choose a liberal criminal over an honest conservative every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
Liberals will not turn on her, and the media will grow tired of this story as yesterday’s news the minute Republicans have a nominee. Hillary will escape. She always does.
Republicans would be wise to put the champagne corks back in the bottle and focus on winning the 2016 presidential election. That will not bring justice for any crimes committed before then, but it can allow for a cleaner and more ethical nation going forward.
Hillary Clinton can be kept from the White House, but she is not going to the big house.
