The New York Times is reporting that the new emails that have caused the FBI to reopen the investigation into the matter of #Hillary Clinton storing classified documents on an unsecured server were discovered on electronic devices belonging to former Congressman #Anthony Weiner, the estrange husband of Clinton aide and confidant Huma Abedin. The Bureau is investigating an illicit text message that Weiner sent to a 15-year-old girl living in North Carolina. The new emails are said to number in the thousands. Something severe must reside in those emails as the threshold is very high for the FBI reopening an investigation so soon before an election of a presidential candidate.

In all the annals of political history dating back to the ancient Egyptians and Sumerians, so twisty development has been more bizarre and yet so fraught with poetic justice. That a pervert not named Bill Clinton would be the one who would dash Hillary Clinton’s hopes for the presidency and perhaps finally send her to jail is so delicious that it defies satire. Jon Stewart, retired from television, must be weeping that he will not be on the air to roll his eyes and mug for the cameras. But that reaction is mild compared to what must be happening behind the scenes with Team Hillary.

One can imagine the screaming, the cursing, the breaking of furniture and the throwing of objects on the part of Hillary Clinton and the tears and pleas for mercy on the part of Human Abedin.

Clinton, thus far, is putting up a brave face, still making speeches to decidedly unenthusiastic crowds. But she must be plotting her exit strategy, and which country without an extradition treaty she means to flee to.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, could barely contain his glee. He opined that perhaps the election is not rigged after all. To be sure a combination of hubris, incompetence, and corruption on the part of the Clintons may hand Trump the Oval Office and power so immense as to be beyond calculation. Hillary Clinton, by her actions, has rigged the election. But it has been rigged against her.  #Election 2016
