Look Who Hillary Clinton Was With When FBI Said There Would Be No Charges
FBI Director James Comey, despite noting evidence that former secretary of state Hillary Clinton had likely violated multiple federal statutes, announced today that the FBI would not be recommending the prosecution of criminal charges related to her private email server scandal.
On the heels of this announcement came the incredible, jaw-dropping optics of the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee being joined on the campaign trail by President Barack Obama, he of the most transparently corrupt administration in history.
In fact, Obama didn’t just join Clinton at a campaign rally in North Carolina, but gave her a ride to the event on Air Force One at taxpayer expense, according to Breitbart — expenses that should be reimbursed to the American taxpayers by the Clinton campaign.
It doesn’t take someone with a Master’s degree in political science to know that, if Obama even suspected that Clinton might be indicted and face criminal charges for her “extremely careless” mishandling of classified materials, he would not have been caught dead making a public appearance on her behalf, much less by her side.
In a brief statement to the media on Air Force One following the bombshell announcement from the FBI, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest laughably declared that Obama received no advance notice of the FBI’s decision before it was announced publicly, according to Politico.
Obama proceeded with his planned campaign rally appearance with Hillary Clinton because he did not expect her to be indicted. That could be, as Director Comey said at the beginning of his news conference, because he did not coordinate his statement with any other government agency, and therefore Obama wasn’t even aware that the news conference was going to be held.
Or maybe Obama knew, in fact, as some have theorized, that Clinton was not going to be indicted at all.
Bur regardless, the optics were terrible, and this from a president known to care more about optics than substance. The FBI director essentially said that Hillary Clinton should be stripped of anything remotely like a security clearance, and shortly thereafter, she’s stepping off Air Force One at the side of the corrupter in chief himself.
As was noted by conservative pundit Ben Shapiro, the corruption of our government has been laid bare for all to see on this astonishing day.
This is a sad day for America when the president considers it appropriate not only to pal around with someone who put the nation’s security at risk, but also to actively promote her as his successor.
