No matter how the FBI investigation into the handling of sensitive information on Hillary Clinton’s personal computer server ends, it likely will hurt her presidential bid.

If she is indicted, she will face further questions about her honesty and perhaps even calls for her to step aside. If she isn’t indicted, as many legal experts predict, critics will accuse the Obama administration of letting her escape charges merely because they want her to win the White House.

No it simply means she will beat Trump with a little less support, either way she will be the next President, you might want to wrap your brain around that fact and do whatever you believe is necessary to prepare for what is to come.

They might fanagle everything down to misdemeanors, and give her a pass that way.

So running a private parallel server for state secrets will be treated like a misdemeanor.

As near as I can tell the democrats are just fine with a felon in office.

What is hard to wrap your brain around is why the Democratic party had to nominate this lying piece of crap. Trump had nothing to do with her nomination, so please no comparisons.

Unless she is officially charged/indicted for a crime and required to stand trial, I predict this will effect her and her campaign and subsequent Presidency as much as her husband was affected by being impeached - which is, not at all.

Because their best other choice was a Socialist and they know they could not win with him and they can win with Hillary, especially against Trump who is every bit the lying piece of crap that Hillary is. Worst election Ever.

Trump is a product of the corruption BOTH parties. The agenda of the Left and the unwillingness of those on the Right to oppose it.

I am curious about the evidence and especially all of the interrogation videos.

If the FBI closes out their investigation by mid-July, how might they go about saying "No evidence of wrong doing" simultaneous to keeping the investigation and thus not having to make the investigation public record?

If the investigation is completely closed will they release interview tapes?

Would a FOIA lawsuit have any chance of winning if they didn't volunteer the information?

Could a successful FOIA lawsuit get the details out before November?

Will not matter to some if the FBI says there was no wrong doing on the Clinton's part, the FBI investigated the Whitewater issue TWICE and both times came back with a no crime was committed by the Clinton's yet the Cons still wasted over 3 Million tax payer dollars to investigate and get nothing from it.

Yes, I agree, I think all of these machinations will hurt, but not disable, Hillary's presidential bid. Along with that, she will have lost significant political capital, and that will limit the support she'll have in trying to move her agenda through congress.

You thought that previous congressional sessions were contentious? Gridlocked? I think that'll only get worse, much worse, with a President Clinton in the White House.

One has to wonder if such a gridlocked congress is really what's in the nation's best interests.

The establishment Right did oppose Trump until they had no choice, and some still do. Can't say the same for the Left.

Sanders could beat Trump. Perhaps even by a wider margin that Hillary.

They had different choices. Do you really think Biden did not want to be president? Hillary has been the next nominee since she lost to Obama.

And,again, Trump has nothing to do with the choice, it was made before he even thought of entering the race.

She is running against Trump, so she's got the presidency wrapped-up.

I don't know about that, there are plenty of Bernie fans that will not support Hillary but my guess is there are far more Conservatives that will not support the Donald, the ethical ones with principles that will not allow them to back a life long Liberal.

Our freedom is only as good as the laws that protect it, THAT is what is wrong with Hillary. She would be a president with no connection to the relationship between truth and lie.

Again, Trump cannot evolve as Obama did on gay marriage, or Hillary on her husbands crackdown on crime?

One has to have a base point to evolve from...trump has no established base point. He covers all bases.

The only option that really matters to all is the scenario of Clinton being indicted. That puts us all into uncharted waters without any basis of what the procedure to proceed would be.

The second scenario of non-indictment is more a problem of yours not Clinton's. If you believe a colluded effort to "get her off"...then that only has bearing on your beliefs.
