I just want your thoughts and concerns. Something is niggling in my brain about the whole Hillary Clinton investigation because, imo, she should have already been arrested or at the very least disallowed from running for president.

James Comey is the Director of the FBI. He was appointed by Obama even though he is a Republican. (That alone should make you wonder about Obama's motives, imo.)

Remember Bill Clinton's "Pardongate"? That was a huge controversy because, unlike presidents that commuted or pardoned people over a span of time, Clinton waited to the end of his presidency and pardoned some very dicey people connected to him in some very suspicious ways.

Mary Jo White, a Democrat and Federal prosecutor, was appointed to investigate the pardons. She was later replaced by Republican James Comey, who found no wrongdoing on Clinton's part.

Mary Jo White has since been appointed by Obama as Chairwoman of the SEC.

And that federal prosecutor, James Comey??? Well, he was appointed FBI director by Barack Obama?

If Congress should find actual criminal wrong doing, the FBI need not do the investigating; they can name a special prosecutor. Even if the DOJ does decide to investigate Comey would not be leading the investigation. As of now, there has been no reason to believe that any laws have been broken; you can bet the Republican led witch hunt would have made it very public if there were.

You left off the part about how she should be in jail IF she is charged, tried and convicted in a court of law. She has constitutional rights, ya know.

Regardless of who the FBI director is, the Justice Department would never prosecute Clintoon. She's basically got unofficial immunity.

The list of those pardoned by Clinton is interesting.

Here is one of those pardoned (for those of you with your thinking caps squarely on as regards the current Clinton mess):

John Deutch was appointed by Bill Clinton in 1995 as CIA Director. Note what he was put in trouble for!

From Wiki: (bold is mine)


In 1995, President Bill Clinton appointed him Director of Central Intelligence (cabinet rank in the Clinton administration). However, Deutch was initially reluctant to accept the appointment. As head of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Deutch continued the policy of his predecessor R. James Woolsey to declassify records pertaining to U.S. covert operations during the Cold War.[4]

Deutch fell out of favor with the Clinton administration because of public testimony he gave to Congress on Iraq. Specifically Deutch testified that Saddam Hussein was stronger than he was four years ago and the CIA might never be able to remedy the issue. Clinton dismissed Deutch after he had won re-election.[5][6]

Deutch left the CIA on December 15, 1996[1] and soon after it was revealed that several of his laptop computers contained classified materials designated as unclassified.[clarification needed] In January 1997, the CIA began a formal security investigation of the matter. Senior management at CIA declined to fully pursue the security breach. Over two years after his departure, the matter was referred to the Department of Justice, where Attorney General Janet Reno declined prosecution. She did, however, recommend an investigation to determine whether Deutch should retain his security clearance.[7] President Clinton pardoned Deutch on his last day in office.[8] Deutch had agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor for mishandling government secrets, but President Clinton pardoned him before the Justice Department could file the case against him.[9]

Deutch lost his security clearance for less. How can Hillary be president without a security clearance.

Deutch's CIA Clearance Suspended


Deutch’s CIA Clearance Suspended Then CIA Director John Deutch John Deutch, former CIA director. (AP) By Vernon Loeb Washington Post Staff Writer Saturday, August 21, 1999; Page A2

CIA Director George J. Tenet announced yesterday that he has suspended the security clearance of his predecessor, John M. Deutch, for violating government rules by working with classified material on an unsecured computer at his home.

She'll keep her security clearance. She's got it unless its taken away and they never will.

I'm really surprised that so many on ATS are so ignorant about how things work in the real world. Rank hath is priviliges and Hillary is at the top of the heap. The "rules" don't apply the same to everyone equally and in some cases, such as the Clintons, the rules don't apply at all.

Then...........Clinton pardoned him.

Hillary is in this same position. At the very least....the VERY least....she should NOT have any security clearance EVER. She cannot be president. Period.

Deutch was DCI; his classified documents might have actually compromised the security of the United States, or revealed ongoing field operations. We do not know what the classification of the documents in Hillary's email was. If it was just "Confidential" because they were routine diplomatic cables, then Deutch lost his clearance for more. Did you know that being a Clinton is not a crime?

And did YOU know that Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State?

There is something rotten in Denmark.

James Comey and his FBI investigators are on the radar now, imo, and the Clinton Machine is breaking down.

Is the FBI investigating Hillary? People keep saying that but the FBI keeps saying they are not! They are investigating the use of email in the State Department in general:


Law enforcement officials have said that Mrs. Clinton, who is seeking the 2016 Democratic nomination for president, is not a target of the investigation, and she has said there is no evidence that her account was hacked. There has also been no evidence that she broke the law, and many specialists believe the occasional appearance of classified information in her account was probably of marginal consequence.


Not a Republican blogger.[Emphasis mine. --DJW001]

It is here.

Some folks are only against "government overreach" if it's not used against Democrats ... it's fine to use the powers of government to punish political enemies (like Clinton) and to ignore the rule of law, trample the Constitution, etc. ... as long as Republicans are in control.

That's one reason (of many) why this whole neocon ideology stinks so damned bad; rank, blatant hypocrisy.

I think that is old stuff you're using. The FBI has actually expanded the investigation into the Clinton Foundation and public corruption now.

Then you should have no difficulty providing a link to something other than Fox, right?

I liked Bill Clinton, until I got older and started reading up on things like BCCI. If you're going to investigate Clinton you've got to eventually give credit where credit is due.

What, your thread?

Well, I wasn't going to say anything.

BTW, reread, perhaps, your own OP. You asked for "thoughts and concerns."

Oh, and followed that up with "imo, she should have already been arrested or at the very least disallowed from running for president."

If "imo" refers to "in my opinion" then your whole OP and everything else in this thread is "opinion."

And your attempt to "call me out" is the exact hypocrisy I was referring to, Ms. Teapot, LOL.
