On Thursday during the daily White House briefing Josh Earnest called the probe into Hillary a “criminal investigation”. This just two hours after Barack Obama endorsed Hillary Clinton and called her one of the most qualified candidates ever to run for president.
“That’s what their responsibility is, and that’s why the president, when discussing this issue in each stage, has reiterated his commitment to this principle that any criminal investigation should be conducted independent of any sort of political interference.”
Sure, there’s no pressure on government employees after the president anointed Hillary as his successor. Why would they be afraid to tell the boss you are going to disqualify his choice from running for president? No reason at all. News sources did searches and found that this is the first time that the White House has called it a “criminal investigation.” This White House doesn’t say anything accidentally. Just what it means, we may not know for quite a while, but we may have a hint. After Obama made his endorsement, he held a private meeting with Loretta Lynch. The fix is in?
There are now reports that the investigation is focused on the 22 emails considered too hot to handle, that the State Department and others considered too dangerous to release. There are now reports that those 22 emails revolve around the country’s drone program. Some were about upcoming attacks, which could have compromised those operations. Not that it matters because Obama has telegraphed that there will not be an indictment no matter what the FBI has and recommends.
He endorses Hillary and then meets with Lynch. Just like the old Verizon commercial, “Can you hear me now?”
