from Bill Still
lass=”” >Every large FBI investigation ends – not starts – by interviewing the major target of the investigation. Tomorrow after weeks of dodging and weaving, Hillary Clinton’s day has finally come.
According to an exclusive report by the Daily Caller, Hillary Clinton is scheduled to meet Saturday, July 2 with the FBI at her Washington, D.C. home.
FBI investigators have already interviewed several Clinton aides, including her former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, and her deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin.
The interview with the FBI comes 5 days after a supposedly secret meeting Bill Clinton had aboard Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s FBI jet at the Phoenix airport on Monday.
Lynch initially claimed that the meeting was merely a chance meeting, but has now retreated to the truth – that Clinton initiated the meeting and that the pair talked privately after everyone but Lynch’s husband was asked to stand outside on the airport tarmac and Lynch’s FBI entourage demanded that no photos, even cell phone photos be made of the event.
Lynch disclosed the meeting 2 days ago, after a local reporter was tipped off by a well-connected tipster.
This morning, Lynch declined to recuse herself from the investigation, but said she fully expected to accept the recommendations of FBI officials and Justice Department attorneys.
However, by 5 pm, her story had drifted back to saying she would not only not recuse herself, but she would maintain full control over approving that recommendation.
The walls are now clearly closing in on the Clintons and the best theory is that a desperate Bill Clinton waited at the airport for Lynch’s FBI jet to arrive – hardly a chance meeting. Lynch granted the meeting – which is a clear violation of not only Justice Department policy, but a basic tenet of legal ethics – because #1 Bill Clinton had given Lynch her first big appointment; and #2, the PlaneGate summit would be kept secret.
No doubt the Clintons knew that Hillary’s interview date had finally been set by the FBI.
That means the end is very near for the Clintons because the Democratic convention in Philadelphia comes one week after the Republican convention, which opens just 17 days from now, on July 18.
No doubt Bill Clinton was trying to negotiate the best deal possible for not only he and Hillary, but for their daughter Chelsea, who is deeply involved in the machinations of the Clinton Foundation.
With that groundwork set, now let’s look at last night’s interview with former Attorney General Michael Mukasey on Fox.
Mukasey was appointed by George W. Bush as Attorney General in 2007 and was replaced by Eric Holder in 2009 upon President Obama’s election.
Mukasay said Lynch should recuse herself.
Mukasey urged Megan Kelly not be suspicious of the intentions of the FBI and the “straight-arrow” prosecutors working at the Justice Department.
Then, as Megyn is trying to quickly wrap up the segment, a determined Mukasey interjects – as his very last words of the interview – this bold assertion:
What he says is the investigation: “Will have momentous results”.
To me, that can only mean one thing; Mukasey believes the Clintons will be indicted – and probably on multiple felonies. Certainly, indicting a former president and his presumptive Democratic presidential nominee wife would fall into the category of a “momentous” event.
