Does the Cruz Kasich alliance against Trump remind anybody of a Marvel comic series or something? Like Ultron vs Captain America and Hulk? What the hell is going on this election season? Kasich is talking through a mouth-full of pancakes to reporters about his uneasy alliance with Cruz while cameras fire away. Doesn't look too presidential to dribble syrup down your chin while waving a fork at the press pool talking about strategies to defeat Trump. It was nauseating, actually. And certainly made Ted "glass the Muslims" Cruz look sane.
And is it possible that Democrats are actually poised to nominate a candidate who is under an active FBI investigation? Seriously? No wonder Bernie isn't backing off, he's a warrant away from the White House.
Can you picture Trump vs Sanders? The most ethical candidate possible against the most sleazy? If Team Clinton thinks the DOJ is going to give her a pass, they're in for a grim surprise. While she ponders VEEP selections the G-men are unlocking allegedly "wiped" email from her suspicious server. And Sen. Grassley may have a plan topple Hillary's presumed ascension to the throne.
Politico has more:
"The FBI could leak internal reports of its investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a home-brewed email server if the Obama administration stifles the inquiry, Sen. Chuck Grassley warned on Friday.
"A hypothetical leak could occur, he said, if officials believed Clinton was not being prosecuted for political reasons.
"'Is there going to be political interference? If there's enough evidence to prosecute, will there be political interference?' the Iowa senator asked during a meeting on Friday with the Des Moines A.M. Rotary club, according to a report in the Des Moines Register.
"'And if there's political interference, then I assume that somebody in the FBI is going to leak these reports and it's either going to have an effect politically or it's going to lead to prosecution if there's enough evidence,' he said.
"Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, has pushed for additional scrutiny of Clinton's email use during her tenure as secretary of state, a subject that has dogged her throughout the 2016 campaign cycle.
"But Grassley said that he wouldn't break the law by 'encouraging' a document leak.
"'I wouldn't be encouraging it because if it's a violation of law, I can't be encouraging a violation of law,' he said. 'This is kind of my own opinion, this is something I've heard.'
"Conservatives blasted President Barack Obama last week for comments he made to Fox News host Chris Wallace, alleging he was exerting undue political pressure on the FBI.
"Wallace asked Obama if could 'say flatly' that Clinton 'did not jeopardize America's secrets.'
"'I've got to be careful because, as you know, there have been investigations, there are hearings, Congress is looking at this,' Obama said, while admitting that he hadn't looked into 'every aspect' of her email use. But, he said, 'I continue to believe that she has not jeopardized America's national security.'
