White House spokesman Josh Earnest said today that “based on what we know” it does not look like Hillary Clinton will be indicted. Earnest made the remarks the White House podium.
A reporter asked, “Can you say with certainty and confidence that Secretary Clinton will not be indicted because of this email scandal?”
“That will be a decision made by the Department of Justice and prosecutors over there,” said Earnest. “What I know that some officials over there have said is that she is not a target of the investigation. So that does not seem to be the direction that it’s trending. But I’m certainly not going to weigh in on a decision or in that process in any way. That is a decision to be made solely by independent prosecutors but again, based on what we know from the Department of Justice, it does not seem to be headed in that direction.”
Not even a smidgen of corruption, right?
Sources at the DOJ and the FBI are said to be “super pissed off” at Earnest.
If Obama wants an indictment, there will be an indictment. If he does not want an indictment, there will be no indictment. Regardless of the evidence. As with every other decision, politics will make the call.
The congress is running out of people to staff the committees investigating the Obama administration’s criminal enterprises ranging from bribing Iran, supplying .50 cal rifles to drug dealers and allowing the release of critical intelligence. I wonder if an administration with “transparency” would require so many committee investigations?
