EVERYBODY SAYS THAT IT IS “ODD TIMING” THAT THE FBI RELEASED THE CLINTON-RICH PARDON PAPERS YESTERDAY --- MAYBE THERE WAS NOTHING ODD ABOUT THE TIMING AT ALL --- MAYBE IT WAS JUST SOME J.EDGAR HOOVER OLD-STYLE FBI HARDBALL
PEOPLE SAID THAT HILLARY AND HER FOLKS MIGHT HAVE MADE A BIG MISTAKE GOING BACK AT FBI DIRECTOR COMEY -- DIRECTLY --- THE WAY SHE AND THEY DID --- MAYBE THIS WAS COMEY & CO’S WAY OF SAYING --- “DON’T DO THAT AGAIN”
NOW, THE CLINTON FOLKS >>> HAVE TO RESPOND <<< TO THE LATEST FBI “HIT” AS WELL --- AND WHINE SOME MORE THAT THE FBI IS PICKING ON THEM
BUT POLITICS AIN'T BEANBAG --- AND IF THE FBI IS BACK INTO POLITICS AGAIN, LIKE BEFORE WATERGATE --- IT'LL BE MORE LIKE GOOD OLD-FASHIONED COUNTRY HARDBALL
Here’s the NPR take on the story: “Just one week from Election Day, the FBI has made a somewhat puzzling release of information related to a controversial pardon Bill Clinton made on his last day in office almost 16 years ago…. On Tuesday, the law enforcement agency released documents related to the former president's pardon of Marc Rich, a former hedge-fund manager who had been indicted on multiple counts of tax evasion, wire fraud and racketeering…. Hillary Clinton's campaign immediately questioned the release, which came from an FBI Twitter account that had been dormant for more than a year up until this past Sunday. The new documents come just days after FBI Director James Comey announced last week that the agency was reviewing new emails possibly related to the former secretary of state's private server. Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon called it an "odd" decision….” (See“More Surprises: FBI Releases Files On Bill Clinton's Pardon Of Marc Rich” by Jessica Taylor, 11/1/16, NPR/ Politics [http://www.npr.org/2016/11/01/500297580/more-surprises-fbi-releases-files-on-bill-clintons-pardon-of-marc-rich]).
You might like this vintage of the Clintons’ and their supporters latest whine a little better --- “The surprise tweet from a little-used FBI account came about 1 p.m. Tuesday, announcing that the agency had published on its website 129 pages of internal documents related to a years-old investigation into former president Bill Clinton's pardon of a fugitive Democratic donor…. The seemingly random reminder of one of the darkest chapters of the Clinton presidency a week before the election drew an immediate rebuke from Hillary Clinton's campaign - with its spokesman tweeting that the FBI's move was "odd" and asking whether the agency planned to publish unflattering records about Republican candidate Donald Trump…. "Will FBI be posting docs on Trump's housing discrimination in '70s?" asked Brian Fallon…. For the second time in five days, the FBI had moved exactly to the place the nation's chief law enforcement agency usually strives to avoid: smack in the middle of partisan fighting over a national election, just days before the vote….” (See “After release of Bill Clinton archive, FBI finds itself caught in a partisan fray” Tom Hamburger & Sari Horwitz, 11/1/16, Chicago Tribune/ Tribune News Service [http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-fbi-archive-bill-clinton-20161101-story.html]).
I think that everybody might be missing the real story here --- THE FBI DOESN’T LIKE THE CLINTONS AND THEY DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO WORK UNDER ANOTHER PRESIDENT CLINTON --- AND THEY ARE WILLING TO DO WHAT IT TAKES TO STOP THEM/HER IN THEIR/HER TRACKS. (Frankly, I didn’t think that an internal government coup against Hillary would start until AFTER the election.)
Wait and see if there's something formal coming from the FBI about a criminal investigation into >>> The Clinton Foundation and/or The Clinton Global Initiative. --- Oh ! Oh ! This might be good too >>> something formal about Deputy Director Andrew McCabe >>> being taken OFF of the Hillary Clinton E-mails investigation..... (Some Republican Chairmen had been asking why he is still on the case.)
