The Investigations That Could Derail Hillary Clinton’s Nomination

Accuracy in Media

The mainstream media are content with giving Mrs. Clinton a pass on her many scandals, downplaying or minimizing information that could potentially damage her campaign. At the same time, media organizations work to bolster her air of inevitability as the chosen candidate by repeatedly drawing attention to the size of her lead in terms of the number of delegates she and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) each have.

After voting in 19 states, the latest delegate count shows Hillary Clinton with 1,130 delegates to 499 for Sanders. But those numbers could be misleading. Clinton has among her delegates 458 superdelegates, meaning elected officials and party officials who can vote for whomever they want, and who comprise about 30 percent of the total number of delegates needed to win the nomination. They have announced that they will vote for her, while just 22 superdelegates have declared support for Sanders. Superdelegates were established after the 1972 election in which Democratic candidate George McGovern won just one state, in order to give the party establishment a better chance to control the nominating process and avoid a repeat of that situation.

It is important to remember, however, that in December 2007 candidate Barack Obama had only 63 superdelegates to Mrs. Clinton’s 169. Yet in 2008 President Obama won the Democratic presidential primary with 463 superdelegates to Mrs. Clinton’s 257. Superdelegates are usually inclined to lend their vote to the candidate who is already winning.

It is no wonder that media reports emphasize Mrs. Clinton’s electability over Sanders. After all, the liberal media have put the full force of their reporting behind ensuring her campaign’s success, even though Sanders is making a surprisingly strong showing so far, having won eight of the 19 states that have held primaries or caucuses. He clearly has the enthusiasm factor going for him.

But the Clinton camp has other things to worry about as well. Bryan Pagliano, who set up Mrs. Clinton’s private email server at the start of her time as secretary of state, recently was granted immunity by the Justice Department. National Review’s Andy McCarthy notes that a “proffer agreement signals that an active grand-jury investigation may well be underway, and if it is not yet underway, it soon will be.”

Hillary Might Soon Have Her Own Server at Leavenworth

Independent Sentinel

The Republican candidates make one statement people don’t like and all we hear is they’re finished and their run is over. Hillary Clinton is facing a possible indictment for a very serious crime, but her candidacy is not in jeopardy. Wait until you hear the latest information released.

The FBI has seized Hillary Clinton’s server which we now know did not have an encryption certificate. There’s little doubt that the Chinese and/or Russian’s and/or North Koreans have the information that was on the server. The technician who managed the server did not have security clearance nor did the lawyer who was in possession of the thumb drive with all of Hillary’s data, or at least the data she didn’t delete.

Senator Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, delivered an update on the classified emails. He has been pressing for more information.
