    I think it would be the story of the century, former first lady, senator, secretary of state, and the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee indicted on federal charges.

    As much as I'd like to see that happen, and as much as I believe the evidence warrants it, I don't think it will ever happen. Some people are power brokers, above the law it seems. I'm sure whoever was put in charge of this case at the FBI was a known friend of the DNC and told to whitewash the final report.

    I will be very surprised if she gets indicted. I voted No.

    Doubt it. However, the FBI will indict or more of her factotums.

    "Factotums", had to look that one up. I think that maybe likely, but then they'd roll on Hillary.

    No, but if she ever gets to the White House she'll be impeached.

    The irony...because Nixon.

    What's your basis for that point?

    Doubtful. Establishment don't roast their own. It impacts the larger game and system they don't want changed.

    I wish, but it's unlikely.

    Absolutely. No doubt whatsoever.

    When she is, I fully expect Obama to pardon her, in a similar manner that Ford pardoned Nixon, for "all offenses against the US which he has committed or may have committed or taken part in between the dates of...blah, blah, blah"

    It became a historical fact and a source of shame; in this case, for the shameless.

    No, I don't think she wil.

    A story bigger than dropping the bombs in Japan, 9-11, Pearl Harbor, Abraham, John, Robert, or Martin's assassination, landing on the moon, the holocaust, Nixon's resignation, women's right to vote, Munich massacre, 1980 US Hockey team, or even the Carolina Panthers winning losing Super Bowl 50?

    Not really. Bill poll numbers were really good still during those days, and still are. If anything, it made Republicans look bad.

    In Hillary Clinton's warped world, crime pays. Secretly admired by less wealthy career criminals across the USA, she is held in high esteem for her power, personal gains and skill at avoiding consequences. Her ability to dupe her supporters into believing she's got their best interest in mind, shes on the cusp of her biggest heist yet.

    Indicted... Surely you jest

    Sounds like you should be making movies instead of posting here. Seriously, that's some good stuff! I would totally see that movie. The Heist: White House

    She won't because her name is Clinton after all

    Actually, the head of the FBI, James Comey was an Assistant AG under Bush 43 and has a reputation of being fair to both sides of the aisle. Now whether or not the DOJ acts on any recommendation from the FBI is where the politics will happen.

    But I do not see an indictment form the DOJ. But if the FBI recommends indicting and the DOJ doesn't, I see a report being leaked form the FBI laying out the case.

    But there is one angle that could lead to an indictment. Obama is all about his legacy and Hillary is much more a centrist that he is. The thought is that a Hillary presidency would be an Obama 3rd term is one I don't agree with. She will want to make her own mark and create her own legacy. Bernie would be an Obama 3rd term.

    So maybe if it looks like Bernie has some momentum going into the convention, Obama may press for an indictment to help ensure his legacy.

    Nope. She will be our next president.

    Republicans showed us they have no interest in the presidency this cycle by nominating Donald Trump. It still makes me giggle a bit inside.

    Hillary's term as president will be a continuation of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama's Third-Way politics, that is to say weak centrism favoring neoliberalism. She will most likely travel to the Right of our current center-Right president. The election of Bernard Sanders would be a polar shift. Something the country desperately needs. Sadly, I don't most are ready to make the hard choices. They will go with what they know and elect Hillary Clinton.

    I really don't think Obama will have the chance to. By the time there is a trial and she is convicted of anything he will be out of office.

    As long as she is registered as a Democrat I doubt it.

    Yes, if only all our politicians were saints like the Republicans.

    Not saying Republicans are any better on the criminal side of things....just that the D next to her name is like a force field of protection.

    Ford pardoned Nixon for cimes he never went to trial for. Presidents traditionally give pardons at the end of there term, you can bet the Hillary's name would be at the top of that list if she were under indictment.

    Here is what I don't understand. Many of Hillary's, and Bernie's, supporters are Millennials who grew up on tehcnology.

    How can they support a candidate who doesn't even realize that you can have multiple email accounts on a Blackberry?
