On the night that Hillary Clinton lost in a humiliating electoral landslide, her first call was to Barack Obama.
“Mr. President,” she reportedly said, “I’m sorry.”
Well, now I think we know why Hillary made that call.
What have we learned over the last several months?
The Obama Justice Department and FBI “pulled their punches” in order to avoid prosecuting Hillary Clinton. James Comey and his team decided long before the investigation concluded that no charges would be brought against her.
And now we know, thanks to “those chattiest of star-crossed lovers” – as Andrew McCarthy calls Strzok and Page – that Loretta Lynch was fully aware that no charges would be brought long before she valiantly bowed out of the decision-making.
So certain were they that Hillary would win, they played fast and loose with the law in order to avoid prosecuting her.
We also know that the FISA process was abused by the Obama Justice Department in order to illegally spy on the Trump campaign. And we know that the Obama Administration unmasked and subsequently leaked the targets of this illegal spying.
And had Hillary Clinton won the election, all these nefarious dealings would still be hidden.
So it isn’t a shock at all that Hillary’s first call after losing the election was to Barack Obama.
Of course she was sorry.
Without Hillary in the White House, this abuse and obstruction of justice would be exposed.
And it wasn’t just going to be Hillary’s ass in a sling if this crap came out.
No wonder Hillary’s first call was a contrite apology to Obama.
Her victory was the one thing that would guarantee they’d all get away with it.
And she failed him.
Speaking of Andrew McCarthy. He had a great column this past week titled Clinton-Obama Emails: The Key to Understanding Why Hillary Wasn’t Indicted.
I highly recommend it if you haven’t read it yet.
If Clinton had been charged, Obama’s culpable involvement would have been patent. In any prosecution of Clinton, the Clinton-Obama emails would have been in the spotlight. For the prosecution, they would be more proof of willful (or, if you prefer, grossly negligent) mishandling of intelligence. More significantly, for Clinton’s defense, they would show that Obama was complicit in Clinton’s conduct yet faced no criminal charges.
That is why such an indictment of Hillary Clinton was never going to happen. The latest jaw-dropping disclosures of text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his paramour, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, illustrate this point.
Comey and Lynch weren’t protecting Hillary you guys.
They were protecting Obama.
And to ensure that Obama’s culpability never saw the light of day, they had to clear Hillary of wrongdoing.
But more importantly, they needed Hillary to win.
And she didn’t.
McCarthy points out that among the “revisions” given to Comey’s July 5 statement was removing any reference to Hillary emailing Barack Obama from this homebrew server.
They were protecting Obama.
But all that protection would do them no good if Hillary Clinton lost.
And on election night after Pennsylvania was called for Donald Trump, my guess is the devastation Hillary experienced was due in large part to this.
They covered up a mountain of crimes confident they would get away with it because the next President would be someone who was complicit.
But she failed to become the next President.
And in light of that, are you at all surprised that her first call was a “Mr. President, I’m sorry” call?
She wasn’t just sorry because Obama’s legacy would not live on.
She was sorry because their crimes would be exposed.
As Andrew McCarthy says in the close of his column:
All cleaned up: no indictment, meaning no prosecution, meaning no disclosure of Clinton-Obama emails. It all worked like a charm … except the part where Mrs. Clinton wins the presidency and the problem is never spoken of again.
This is why they’re panicking.
And this is why the Enslaved Press is bending over backward to dismiss the Nunes memo.
