Skip to comments.Does Mike Bloomberg Know Something We Don’t About the Clinton FBI Probe?
Posted on 01/27/2016 11:28:25 AM PST by TangledUpInBlue
Another explanation is that he sees trouble ahead for Hillary Clinton. Because of his close relationship with former NYC police Chief Ray Kelly and others in the law enforcement community, he might have the inside track on the FBI investigation into the former Secretary of Stateâs handling of classified documents and questionable foundation-related activities. Democrats have done a fine job of completely dismissing the FBI inquiry, but the possibility that Clinton could face serious legal hurdles may be encouraging Bloombergâs ambitions.
The probe is not, as some Hillary backers have claimed, scandal-mongering by right-wing zealots. It is a serious investigation, reportedly employing more than 100 FBI agents not normally known for idle gestures. It is being directed by the famously apolitical James Comey, who heads President Obamaâs FBI. Comey faced down apparatchiks in the George W. Bush administration seeking to continue a warrantless wiretapping program, putting his job on the line to do so. When a reporter asked him if he didnât have a duty to support President Bush, Comey answered âNo, my responsibility, I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.â
Obama proudly cited that independent streak when he announced Comeyâs appointment. If the FBI discovers evidence of wrong-doing â and there are many reasons to think they will â Comey will not sit on the findings. The FBI does not indict; that is up to the Justice Department. But, if the FBI makes a recommendation to indict, and Justice ignores the report, rumor is the FBI could make public the incriminating material. Either way, Hillary Clintonâs political ambitions are toast.

As soon as Bloomberg made his announcement, my first comment was “So Hillary’s going to be indicted, and polling shows Bernie can’t win....”
But what I didn’t follow in the article is the automatic connection between Bloomberg, his ex police and the FBI? Why do past Police Contacts automatically = FBI in the know?
My first thought was that the Democrat turned Republican just to run on Rudy’s coat tails and he is going back to his democrat status where he belong the whole time...
Answer is: No, he is just an egotistical blowhard control freak who feels like he is missing out on the fun.
Bloomberg ran for mayor as a republican because all the slots for a democrat candidate were taken.
It was either run as a republican or do not run at all.
And then he spent over $100 million to get elected.
At this point, if it’s Trump vs. Bloomberg, NY goes to Trump.
Bloomberg is RICH. He is a GREAT candidate. He can run with his on money and be beholden to no one! He is RICH! He has experience. He is RICH! As the head of his company he has negotiated Hundreds of deal worth millions of dollars so he clearly knows how to make a deal. Oh and did you know he is richer? Richer than Trump.
The only reason I can see for a Bloomberg run is that they are concerned Hillary will get indicted. Aside from being a ridiculous caricature of a communist that the GOP should be able to beat, Bernie is running as an outsider and probably is less controllable by the party machine than the DNC would like.
THAT'S the money shot for the FBI
Since Bloomberg has already shown that he can get elected in NY, and Trump hasn't yet shown that he can be elected dog catcher, why would you be so confident? Especially when Bloomberg could easily outspend Trump 4-1???
I sure hope they go after the foundation’s activities because that will bring down Bill too. Can we hope that dear Chelsea gets some serious attention?
Maybe we will get to ask Mikey why he tried to concoct the “spontaneous” lie after the Boston bombing.
I wonder if it had anything to do with the classified information someone leaked to him in October of 2005.
What a coincidence. Seems the ACLU tried to concoct a version of the “spontaneous” lie in January of 2006.
Maybe the BB spontaneous lie has something to do with trying to blame the TEA Party for the 2010 attempted car bombing in NYC.
Maybe Mikey was trying to concoct a New and Improved version of the “spontaneous” lie for Hillary after her Benghazi “spontaneous” lie blew up in her face.
Come on Mikey run, let’s get some answers.
Both quite possible, but I see the Dems installing SlowJoe or Fauxcahontas quickly if something happens to Mrs. Bill Clinton.
Either of which would do better in Nov than Hillary or Burney.
How about if it’s Biden, Bloomberg, and Trump on the ballot?
You lost me...
