The latest batch of Hillary Clinton emails may contain the ′smoking gun′ which could lead to federal charges against her and her staff. Sent on June 17, 2011, Hillary Clinton instructed one of her staff, Jake Sullivan, to send material to her via email and to ″turn into nonpaper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure.″ The material in question that particular day was a set of talking points and there had been difficulty in her staff sending it to her via a secure fax line. So, now we know why her emails contained classified material that was not labeled as classified in the emails. She told her staff to do it that way! A clear violation of federal laws.

With about 82% of the emails now released thanks to the Judicial Watch and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) lawsuits, this latest batch of some 3,000 pages came about because the Department of State failed to release enough before midnight of December 31. They contained some 66 emails which had classified material in them. This brings the total to 1,340 emails which had classified material. A far cry from the ZERO which Hillary Rodham Clinton had claimed back in March of 2015 when the story about her private email server first broke.

The rumor mill is buzzing that the Federal Bureau of Investigations, FBI, intends to submit recommendations for indictments to the Department of Justice by early March. Hillary Rodham Clinton is clearly suspect Number One on their list, but many of her staff can expect to be indicted as well. Along with Jake Sullivan, Hillary′s Chief of Staff, Cheryl Mills and her closest confidant, Huma Abedin, along with others, may face criminal charges. Some say that if Loretta Lynch chooses not to prosecute anyone over the Hillary Clinton scandal, that many top FBI officials may resign and publicly attack the Barack Obama administration for playing politics over upholding the laws of our land.

Even if Hillary, herself, escapes being indicted, should any of her staff be charged, all heck will break loose and the Clinton presidential campaign could unravel quickly. Its the old Watergate scheme of handing over John Mitchell to protect Richard Nixon. To throw Huma and others to the wolves and spare Hillary might keep Clinton out of prison, but it would effectively end her campaign overnight. As things stand now, her presidential aspirations are bleeding away thanks to Donald Trump.

Just this week, Mary Kay Henry, President of SEIU, the Service Employees International Union, announced that some 64% of the union′s 2.1 million members are supporting Donald J Trump. This, despite the fact that the union endorsed Hillary back in November. A recent poll in Minnesota conducted by Survey USA shows Hillary Clinton trailing four of the top six GOP presidential candidates. Minnesota hasn′t gone for a Republican president since 1972! State political experts are voicing concerns that turn out for Democrats maybe significantly lower in 2016 than in 2008 or 2012. Many early polls of Northeastern states, from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania show Trump beating Clinton. There is considerable support for Trump from union members, lower Middle Class, and even from African-American voters, all of which form the base for Democrat candidates. I suspect that even New York state is in play this year thanks to Trump!

Hillary Rodham Clinton is in big trouble! Not only are the latest Hillary Clinton emails showing that the scandal may turn into criminal charges shortly, but her base of support is dwindling. She was already having a hard time with the Youth Vote. Now it is looking more and more like other key factions of the Democrat Party are jumping ship. Even if many GOP Establishment types sit out the election when Donald J Trump becomes the Republican presidential nominee, as they did in 1964 when Barry Goldwater ran, perhaps as many as 20% of Democrats who voted for Obama twice may pull the level for Trump over Hillary. The DNC better start thinking of a Plan B real soon!
