OK, This is total speculation.

But why now? Why did Trump suddenly announce that he would not peruse prosecuting Hillary? This after pledging over and over again that he would put Hillary in jail, to the thunderous roars of his rabid supporters, throughout his campaign. Why didn't he wait until sometime after he was sworn in?

It certainly went over like a lead balloon with his supporters. You'd think, that had he decided not to go after Hillary, he would of just let it gradually fall off the radar. Rather than risk disappointing the legions of bloodthirsty pitbulls that swept him into office, before he even spent one day as El Presidente.

Could it be? That only a day after he announced that he would not be going after Hillary , CNN, the Huffington Post and other news outlets would be coming out with articles about computer experts calling for Hillary to demand a recount…that there is strong evidence that voting machines were hacked in important swing states. Could this have anything to do with the rationale for letting Hillary off the hook now?

Or could this actually be construed as a backhanded threat by theTrump team to Hillary that "You're in the clear now. But don't mess with us. Go on about your business, we're not coming after you now. But don't get any ideas about challenging the election."

Could that be the what's afoot here? Just speculating!!

It could be as simple as the fact Trump is not a Republican.

I don' think there is such a thing as Republicans now. They are all bigot Fascist/ Nazis! Just look at all these shit-head Republicans come crawling back to kiss Herr Trump's ring. Intimidation, fear and paranoia, greed and power are the only things they understand. They've proved they have no morals or ethics, or Trump would never have even been considered in first place. But apparently a pathological lying, racist, sexual abusing, conman is just right for the new Alt Right Christian Republican norm.

That does not mean that the supposed FBI investigation into the Clinton foundation will end. Though I suspect there will be a significant drop off in donations. But of course there was no influence peddling going on so it should be as lucrative as it has always been. Right?

You do not believe there was influence peddling with the Clintons?

Your post number 2 is just brilliant, concise, and accurate. Well done.

Trump has no control over the FBI. The FBI is to operate separate from politics.


I think it would be best for Obama to give the peace and security to Hilary Clinton and grant a pardon. It may seem like a conflict between truth and campaigning but just end it with a pardon.

The Supreme Court has lost some creditability making huge sweeping laws created from politics verses the constitution. Citizen United for example. And the effects on society is foreign propaganda paid by unlimited resources to influence elections in America.


President Obama should also pardon Edward Snowden because with the new alliance between USA and Russia... Edward Snowden may be disappearing soon...

"You do not believe there was influence peddling with the Clintons?"

I think it's called politics ... the Clintons' biggest crime is having the audacity to dream ... to believe they can make a difference, if they just keep working and don't give up ... and, the bald face insolence to challenge established standards of (mal)practice in health care, insurance, big pharma, the economy at large ... and to raise the questions nobody-wants-to-confront-or-discuss ... as I said before,

What Do Democrats Really Want?

Thom plus logo Thomas Friedman, the confused billionaire, told us decades ago that "free trade" is what made the Lexus a successful product when, in fact, it was decades of Japanese government subsidies and explicit tariffs that did so.
