I remember this indictment and its timing. It was so obviously a political hit job and the MSM played it up to the hilt at the time.

Zitat
Whispers of "payback" are being directed at Hillary Clinton after she decried as "unprecedented" the surprise FBI revival of its probe of her email scandal.

That's because 24 years ago, as former President George H.W. Bush was surging back against challenger Bill Clinton, a special prosecutor raised new charges against Bush in the Iran-Contra probe, prompting Clinton to claim he was running against a "culture of corruption."

Many Republicans claimed that the indictment made by special prosecutor Lawrence Walsh against former Reagan-era Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger the weekend before the 1992 election cost Bush a second term. The indictment, later thrown out, challenged Bush's claim that he did not know about a controversial arms-for-hostages deal that dogged the Reagan-Bush administration.

When it came, Clinton seized on it, saying for example, "Secretary Weinberger's note clearly shows that President Bush has not been telling the truth when he says he was out of the loop." Clinton added, "It demonstrates that President Bush knew and approved of President Reagan's secret deal to swap arms for hostages."

I am indifferent to the "pay back" theme but deeply offended by the obvious double standard. OTOH, if it weren't for double standards the Left would have no standards at all.

Oh yes!!! the Dems are shameless. They have no sense of right or wrong, they simply believe as true whatever is politically expedient. And that's not what's right.

Bill O'Reilly nailed it last night.

From the daily Mail. Being investigated does nat make one guilty but this seems to under 'where's there's smoke". These ivestigations are being pursued despite opposition from the WH and Lynch.

Influence peddling, acting for Putin's ally, hiding classified secrets and sexting - how FIVE separate FBI cases are probing virtually every one of Clinton's inner circle and their families

  • Scale of FBI investigations into Clinton's closest aides and friends is becoming clear

  • Besides Huma Abedin, a swathe of long-time loyalists are at the center of investigations including Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe

  • John Podesta ran the Clinton Foundation which is under investigation while his brother Tony is also focus of a probe about foreign corruption

  • Cheryl Mills already received limited FBI immunity during Clinton email investigation - and is key Clinton fixer

  • String of other names are being looked at or have been caught up in earlier scandals

    The extent to which Hillary Clinton's key advisers are now the focus of major FBI investigations is becoming clear.

    The Clintons' long-term inner-circle - some of whom stretch back in service to the very first days of Bill's White House - are being examined in at least five separate investigations.

    The scale of the FBI's interest in some of America's most powerful political fixers - one of them a sitting governor - underlines just how difficult it will be for Clinton to shake off the taint of scandal if she enters the White House.

    Could it be the Clintons and their machine are finally going to receive some retribution for their years of misdeeds? Is it possible?

    Wouldn't that be great.

    Here's another article detailing the multiple investigations.

    Blockbuster report on internal FBI conflict over investigating Clinton machine
    By Thomas Lifson

    Zitat
    It turns out that the investigation of the Clintons’ web of corruption has been bubbling up across the country, involving multiple FBI arms. This scoop alone is enormously important. It is very difficult to keep a lid on when so many locations and criminal specialties are involved. There is a downside to having such a large web of criminal enterprises: lots of law enforcement agencies take notice in their respective domains.

    WikiLeaks reveals Clinton staff knew Weiner was texting underage girls five years ago
    By Thomas Lifson


    The art of the marriage deal between Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner seems to have included tolerating perversion with underage girls. The latest email release from WikiLeaks has exposed what Huma and Hillary are willing to tolerate so long as there is political utility.

    Kelly McLaughlin of the U.K. Daily Mail reports:

    Zitat
    Hillary Clinton's staffers knew as early as 2011 that Anthony Weiner had been messaging an underage girl, but they did nothing about it, according to WikiLeaks emails published Monday.

    John Podesta - now chair of Clinton's presidential campaign - and Neera Tanden, another adviser, were forwarded news of an investigation into Weiner's online contact with a 17-year-old Delaware high school student by Jennifer Palmieri, the current campaign communications director, in June 2011.
