Why Obama Had To Ensure That Hillary Was Not Prosecuted To Save His Own Head

on

Barack Obama personally played a hand in keeping Hillary from a well-deserved prosecution according to Andrew McCarthy.

Andrew McCarthy is the former assistant US attorney and he believes that Hillary Clinton avoided an obvious prosecution from the FBI because Obama wouldn’t allow it to occur. The reasoning behind Obama’s decision is also the evidence as Clinton’s unsecured email account received communications from none other than Obama himself. While Obama attempted to claim ignorance of its existence he also was in possession of email communications from Hillary that didn’t come from a government email account so how did he not know? Obama was desperate to hide his own legal communications and therefore went out in order to protect Hillary.

Via Allen B West:

Andrew McCarthy explained how the decision was really Obama’s not to prosecute.

Obama communicated with Hillary Clinton on her nonsecure account with his own private account using a pseudonym.

This would have blown up to everybody that he had a private email account and that he likely shared classified information with her on it because she was the Secretary of State.


Not only would Clinton potentially have committed a crime, so would Obama.

Something he would not want to be exposed.

Obama claimed he learned about Clinton’s email through the news “The same time everybody else learned it,” an obvious lie.

That lie resulted in a consequent panicked cover-up:

Clinton campaign secretary Josh Scherwin emailed former White House Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri: “Jen you probably have more on this but it looks like POTUS just said he found out HRC was using her personal email when he saw it on the news.”

Scherwin’s email was forwarded to Mills.

Mills emailed Podesta: “We need to clean this up — he has emails from her — they do not say state.gov.”

 

McCarthy explains Obama, through a stroke of malevolence, used a trick that helped cover-up that it was really about defending himself and the fact that he likely sent classified information.

Obama had his email communications with Clinton sealed. He did this by invoking a dubious presidential-records privilege. The White House insisted that the matter had nothing to do with the contents of the emails, of course; rather, it was intended to vindicate the principle of confidentiality in presidential communications with close advisers. With the media content to play along, this had a twofold benefit: Obama was able (1) to sidestep disclosure without acknowledging that the emails contained classified information, and (2) to avoid using the term “executive privilege” — with all its dark Watergate connotations — even though that was precisely what he was invoking.

Note that claims of executive privilege must yield to demands for disclosure of relevant evidence in criminal prosecutions. But of course, that’s not a problem if there will be no prosecution.

Then despite the fact that Clinton was under investigation, Obama weighed in during a media interview where he said for public consumption that he did not believe Hillary should be prosecuted because she hadn’t intended any harm to national security.

Of course, the intent is not the standard. But it was improper for him to weigh in on her guilt or innocence because that indicated to the people investigating that they should conform their decisions to his view. And if they were not going to prosecute anyway, it now looks like he influenced them.

Thereafter, a few weeks later, Comey did exactly that, drafting an exoneration letter, despite the case still continuing and not having interviewed multiple witnesses including Clinton herself.
