|Her Girl Friday:: Huma Abedin, (this is what Amal Clooney will look like after she ends the hunger strike) who is Hillary Clinton's closest confidante, is now lawyering up and lying low.|
Friday night had GSL's beloved Cubs playing in a World Series game at Wrigley Field for the first time in 71 years and I wound up not watching the game or even wanting to. GSL, like the rest of the political world, was rocked by the revelation that the FBI Criminal Investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails was back on.
After hunkering down in The Den's Situation Room monitoring developments, GSL offers the following astute analysis based on how things stand now.
|Here is Huma's classy husband who is under criminal investigation for allegedly sending pics like this (many with 4yo son) to underage girls.|
The Clinton camp scorched earth defense is the only card they can play. Hillary gets to play victim which is always her go-to move. The FBI Director James Comey (appointed by Obama) who as recently as last week received high praise from running mate along with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, et al....is now depicted as driven by partisan motives with the always convenient S & M (sexist/misogynist) subtext to stoke outrage among true believers.
FBI: the additional 650,000 emails were found on Huma Abedin's perv hubby Anthony Weiner's laptop (apparently shared with Huma) who resigned in disgrace from Congress due to an earlier sexting scandal. The New York FBI office subpoenaed and seized Weiner's electronic devices (relating to his indictment over sexting a 15yo girl) and stumbled on this mother lode. What is noteworthy is they started looking at the laptop several weeks ago and only officially notified FBI Director Comey last Thursday, the day before he sent that letter to Congressional leaders of both parties notifying them that recent discoveries regarding HRC's email case merited further investigation. They then sought a warrant allowing them to search the laptop specifically for HRC correspondence. I'm sure once those local FBI agents stumbled onto all those HRC emails, they took a peek and already know there are explosive revelations coming and intimated thru colleagues so that Director Comey had a sense he was on solid ground before sending that game changer letter. Senators Reid and Boxer have made scathing comments against Director Comey, a man they had enormous respect for a week ago. What tells crafty old pro GSL, that Comey is holding a good hand is how White House Spokesman Josh Earnest just issued a surprisingly strong statement backing Comey which tells me that Obama moles at Justice/FBI have passed along that Comey has a strong hand and Hillary is holding Aces & Eights.
Huma: hard to predict how this will shake out for Huma. Is the laptop with the motherlode really hubby Wiener's and she never used it? If so, how did thousands of emails to HRC's private server get there. Maybe Weiner surreptitiously downloaded all those emails to his laptop as an 'insurance policy' to have a hole card should he ever need pardon, lucrative opportunities, or launch a political comeback.
Only recently, on this post, I praised Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile as one of the most honest people in public life. WikiLeaks now proves that false. While working as commentator for CNN, she secretly shared debate questions ahead of time to Hillary's campaign team. CNN was quick to cut all ties to DB. If this was any week but this week, Bernie supporters would demand her immediate resignation from DNC Chairmanship which now will come no later than next week. A stunning fall from grace.
Unfortunately, Diogenes lantern couldn't shine on an honest man or woman in today's Washington.
