When the FBI comes knocking, what will Hillary do?
Im retired in Florida now, but one of the former junior partners from my firm in Washington is writing a book on the legal history and implications of the Bill Clinton impeachment proceedings. When viewed under a microscope, in light of the current Clinton investigations, it sheds a clear light on exactly what Hillary will do when and if the FBI come knocking with a grand jury indictment for her arrest.
In the process of writing the book, Kevin has interviewed a number of people who were very involved in the matter, both from the government side and from the Clinton side. One very remarkable, and almost universally overlooked fact has come out.
Most Americans were first exposed to Monicagate on a Tuesday morning. Actually, the Washington Post had the entire story, with all facts verified, but had spiked it on the previous Friday. Jackie Judd from ABC news was also working the story and she had it all; names, dates, times, places, and even the voicemail recordings on Monday. But, news executives being the weenies they are, they refused to run the story in the ABC World News Tonight program on Monday.
So someone at ABC-TV who had faith in the story leaked some of the details at about 9 PM Eastern time to a California newspaper. That California newspaper then began to ask questions that started floating around Washington. The ABC reporters and produces were then able to go screaming to the Suits, the bureaucrats who run television and television news and tell them that the story was about to break nationally and if they didnt get it on the air they would be badly beaten.
With that, ABC broke into Nightline about 11:45 Eastern time and of course its saturated the next days morning shows. 9 AM did not arrive without it being public knowledge in every barbershop, taxicab, and watercooler.
Backtracking to the previous weekend, the Clintons held a meeting with their top advisers to discuss the story. They all knew it was true, and quite frankly nothing new. It was simply a repetition of Bills conduct with multiple dozens of women since his Attorney General of Arkansas days.
There were a number of very smart people at that weekend crisis meeting. The best of them, including the ones who are skilled at public relations and media communications said, that if the story broke, it would be critically important that Bill Clinton say absolutely nothing about the story, to refuse comment on it entirely at first.
But then about 36 hours after the story broke, the White House press office would let it leak that Clinton asked for 10 minutes of national television time starting at 8 PM the next evening. There would be no indication as to what he was going to say, just that it was going to be an important message for every American. Since everyone knew that we were not at war and probably not about to be, nor was there a hurricane offshore, everyone just assumed it was about Monica.
Thats exactly what the Clinton brain trust wanted.
The plan was that Bill would go on national television and with that Ive been a bad boy, but Ill try to be better hangdog persona he could turn on at will and confess to the nation that, he had in fact had an inappropriate relationship with a young woman. But he would immediately go on to say that it was not her fault in any way, that the fault was his entirely, and that no one else other than him was to blame for his conduct. (Ive been a bad, bad boy)
He was then to continue that he had embarrassed himself, worse than that he had embarrassed his family, and even worse than that, he had embarrassed every American by his conduct. And again, all the fault was his and he is searching in his soul for why he wouldve been so foolish.
(Ive been a bad, bad boy But I Ill try to do better)
Tthen, after a dramatic pause, and with great emphasis he would ask for forgiveness, if you can find it in your hearts to give it, that he was seeking counseling along with their forgiveness, yada yada yada yada yada.
He would end with a statement something along the lines of as I leave you tonight I pray for peace throughout the world And ask you to keep me in your prayers as well.
The next day, the news would portray him as a statesman, fully accepting responsibility for his own faults, a true and honest man, and all the other BS that the Clinton media machine could generate.
It of course would be absolutely the one and only hot topic on the Sunday news shows, but by the following Monday would have become old news.
Within two weeks, the national mood would be well, you know old Bill
This course of action would have followed the long-proven best way to deal with any negative publicity, because, despite anyones fondest hope, the facts always come out you must always:
Tell it all, tell it yourself, tell it today
. and as a result, in a couple of tomorrows, it goes away.
Everybody was signed on to the plan . until Hillary got involved. She viewed it as corrupt lawyers always do. She didnt care what was right or wrong. She only cared about what she thought she could get away with. She wanted to do anything and everything she could do to delay and defuse the situation. She didnt care about the embarrassment this was creating for Bill, she was worried about her own future. The lawyer in her couldnt understand that by telling all, telling himself, and telling it today, Clinton wouldve turned even her, Hillary, with sympathetic character, that poor little old cheated-on woman.
No, she had to view it as the Saul Alinsky-trained lawyer she is. She decreed that they would deny, deny, deny, delay, delay, delay, attack everyone else involved, blame the Republicans and do everything else they could until the public mind simply got tired of the situation.
I wont go into the details here but literally tens of thousands of lawyers hours were expended by the Clinton defense team to ensure that justice was not done. Little of it had to do with whether or not Bill had actually sodomized Miss Lewinsky. The focus was turned on us as the evildoers, with our puritanical ways and desires to hurt Bill (and Hillary) in any way we could.
Hillary could never accept the fact that by a simple explanation of the obvious, the whole thing would go away in less than two weeks. Certainly some people wouldve remembered forever, especially conservatives, but it wouldve been at most a minor sidelight in the history of the Clinton presidency.
The reason the Monicagate story became the disaster it did for the United States was solely and completely Hillarys decision to fight it in every unscrupulous way she could.
Those who know her know that that mindset has not changed.
So if she is indicted, or even not indicted but subject to a damaging report by the FBI regarding her emails, and more importantly fraud within the Clinton Global Initiative (the Clinton Foundation) that personally brought Bill and Hillary tens, if not hundreds of millions of dollars in ill begotten gains, the course that she will take is obvious.
Her reaction will be absolutely .. Nothing!
Sid Blumenthal will have a prepared statement claiming the charges are completely unfounded, baseless and purely vindictive charges, brought about by the vast right-wing conspiracy or whatever else they want to call us this year, and the only reason its being brought now is to tear down a wonderful woman, etc. etc. etc.
There will be some calls from within the Democratic Party for her to step aside, but there is absolutely no legal requirement that she do so. And remember, for the Clintons, its not whats right or wrong, its what the law will let them get away with. The talking heads of television will be split 50-50 down the middle, some saying she has to get out of the race but the louder ones saying that only Hillary, only a woman as strong as Hillary, can carry on in the face of these obviously uncalled for assaults and words to that effect.
And so, as the weeks go by, the story will become less and less important, and people will move on to other things, just as they did in Monicagate. Her percentage of victory at the Democratic National Convention might be less, but the cheering pantsuit sycophants (oh, Huma!!!) would love her even if she got caught shooting Santa Claus on Christmas Eve.
Remember, with a defendant in a situation like this, her attorneys can delay, delay and delay a case like this for at least 18 months. Of course immediately after the election, or even before, Obama could pardon her. As bizarre as it may seem, and this is uncharted legal territory, most constitutional attorneys agreed that, if elected, she just might be able to pardon herself, or at least get away with it, if she was inaugurated next January.
And so my conservative friends, be prepared for . God knows what! But whatever you do, dont assume, just because honorable people such as ourselves would completely drop out of a political race if we were indicted, dont expect that Hillary would feel any compulsion to do so.
She thinks God put her on this earth, (well not really God, because socialists cant believe in God) but something put her on this earth to destroy the horrible, evil United States and turn the entire world into one huge socialist globe, with all of us peasants, singing Kum Ba Ya .. While she and Huma and the rest of the cabal live in the lap of taxpayer-funded, power-mad luxury and debauchery.
And just think, if she was elected after being indicted or even the subject of a non-indicting negative FBI report, can you imagine even for a moment how she would unleash her wrath on all of us?
Yes, she is that dangerous.
Order the Secret Service to protect her from them.
She can’t lie to LE so she will respond with her usual “I don’t recall.”
"We are in the midst of an election, and in the interest of all supporters of candidates, we owe it to them not to interject elements of potentially bias into the campaigns."
Clinton will never be charged with anything.
Conservatives need to deal with reality and stop with the fantasy.
Neither Party wants Hillary indicted since she is one of the elites.
What she akways does...lie, cheat, rely on her low IQ MSM buds to help her out, and call the Just (Full of Corrupt and Incompetant Losers) Us dept to bail her out.
She’ll run into the bathroom, climb on top of the server, and out the window.
1) Take the 5th and deny everything
2) Lie Lie Lie Lie ....
3) Tell the truth
No way #3, #1 possible
I take door #2 Monte......
Either way she is screwed.
Taking 5th is virtual admission of guilt
#1 means confessing to multiple felonies
#2 The Clinton way - try lie your way out of it
Lying to FBI is a felony
Slick Willy’s behavior with Lewinsky did not involve death and espionage.
Hillary is involved in espionage, and this country has hung Americans for committing espionage.
Four dead in Benghazi and our children and grandchildren at risk because of her greed.
People can understand the difference.
The Clintons have always used the same strategy. There was nothing different about Monicagate, and there will be nothing different this time around, IF there is ever a criminal referral, which is HIGHLY unlikely.
CLINTON LIVES MATTER!
I can see the pantsuited crowd with the blue signs now. She loves being a victim.
Nothing is going to happen. She’s lied to the FBI before; there is no reason she won’t get away with it again.
She’s a member of the Clinton Crime Family. Nothing will happen and she will go on to be president. The people have been dumbed down and they really are that stupid.
What she says to the FBI is unimportant. It’s what the others say. One has already been given immunity, and that only happens when the immunized person can “trade up”, give the Feds someone much higher up the food chain.
True, but in he specific Monica case, that was all after Hillary vetoed the honesty strategy.
Knocking to what-apologize for the misunderstanding?
Call Obama, who will call it a political year with hunt, issue a pardon, and say he is healing the nation and not letting this hijack the political process.
