The “Fix” Must Be In With The FBI/DOJ’s Investigation Of Secretary Of State Clinton....

Updated on October 31, 2016

The “Fix” Must Be In With The FBI/DOJ’s Investigation Of Secretary Of State Clinton….

Over a month ago, President Obama officially endorsed Secretary of State Clinton as the Democratic Party nominee for President. What was curious about the President’s endorsement was the fact that Secretary of Clinton is currently under investigation by the FBI, along with her husband for alleged wrong-doings by operating their charity organization, The Clinton Foundation. To compound the problems for the Clintons was the recent news that the Attorney General, Loretta Lynch met secretly – or it was supposed to be secretly – with President Clinton in an airplane hangar in Arizona. For any lawyer, especially brilliant lawyers like the Attorney General and President Clinton, they should have known that such a meeting was fraught with ethical legal problems. With this backdrop, it seems as though that the ‘fix’ must be in with the FBI/DOJ’s investigation of Secretary of State Clinton.

It is understood that a President Hillary Clinton would likely carry on the policies of President Obama, which would, in essence, be a defacto third term for the President; but President Clinton is a party to the current investigations and the fact that he appointed Miss Lynch as a United States Attorney years ago underscores the ethical dilemma. Even an average law student like me knows the meaning of “ex parte” or “the Appearance of Impropriety” and the private meeting should not have been done, unless it was deliberate and was meant not to be discovered. This may be so because this secret meeting between Attorney General Lynch and President Clinton was only made public because they were outed by a local Arizonan reporter who was told of said secret meet. The question that begs itself is why not divulge this meet if there were nothing wrong… and to meet for a half an hour is even more ethically problematic.

I cannot believe that Secretary of State Clinton sanctioned this meet between her husband and the Attorney General because Mrs. Clinton knows that it is a constant refrain… from poling… that many of the voting public at large, on either side of the political isle, does not trust her. Now with the secret meeting between the Attorney General and President Clinton makes it look like that the Clintons were trying to influence the outcome of the FBI/DOJ’s investigations and that Miss Lynch was privy and welcomed the apparent ‘undue influence.’ It is a situation like this why the voting public has no confidence in politicians and gravitates towards supposed outsiders like Senator Saunders and novice politicians like Donald Trump.

As someone who resides in New York and is privy to Attorney General Lynch’s legal work, I can honestly say that she did a stellar job here in New York in her prosecutions of those who broke the law - Democrats and Republicans alike - before she became the Attorney General. I would hate to think that Washington, D.C. has corrupted Miss Lynch like so many before her… adding to the venal milieu of the partisan political system. I say again, as an attorney by training, I do not understand why Miss Lynch would meet with President Clinton, an integral, material party to the ongoing investigations, for such a long time. Miss Lynch should have known that a meeting with interested parties to her conspicuous criminal investigations, in light of the people involved and the potential political ramifications, would provide legitimate fodder… and moreover, implicates the justice system’s mantra that no one is above the law - not even the Clintons. I have used Bob Dylan's Song - Like a Rolling Stone - to help flesh out the themes of this blog.

      A team of FBI investigators chose not to recommend prosecution. I for one, am good with that.

      The politicians seem to have done everything they possibly can to make sure that we don't get that message, and to make it look like the outcome was influenced by their actions. I regard that as "situation normal".

      We did not lose the power to vote how we choose. The outcome of the 2016 election is NOT predetermined.

      Leaning far right - I have been writing in this forum for five years and my leanings are towards Christ Jesus, which means that I take flak from both sides. Are the policies of the Democrats anathema to me who is a Traditional Christian - yes they are: from Abortion, to gay marriage; and to the Democratic Party seemingly decrease in supporting Israel....

      Attorney General Lynch has no power in controlling the outcome of an investigation of Hillary started long before she was finally excepted to the office she holds. Being trained as an attorney Verily Prime you should know and understand that investigations and findings is not the job of the head of the Department of Justice . As lose as lips are in the Federal Government Ms Lynch knows her only input in the investigation is to co-sign the investigators finding. Bill Clinton knows she can't sway the decision in any way. So why should a learned man like you promote and pass on mis and dis information to the unlearned public? Are you trying to impress somebodies by leaning far right ?

      If Hillary doesn't win, it won't be from Bill's lack of trying to screw it up for her. This will provide fuel for the Never Hillary folks for the next 8 years no matter what was said on that plane. Political maneuver? Probably. Stupid? Ah- Yes!
