This may well be far-fetched. But after watching the H. A. Goodman video:
FBI and DOJ to Indict Hillary Clinton Before Convention Stay Patient Bernie Sanders, in which Goodman states that the circumstances surrounding her email server cannot but lead to an indictment (or at the very least a crippling FBI report) and that everyone in the Department of Justice is well aware of this, mustn't one assume that would also include President Obama? If so, it would indeed put a significantly different spin on Obama's recent behavior vis-a-vis Mrs. Clinton; and would perhaps not indicate the reflexive aiding and abetting a fellow member of The Club, as I think most of us have assumed.
For example: Obama's reneging on his promise to release Clinton's TPP emails more sooner than later, and now waiting until after the election in November to do so.
But... wait a minute. Wouldn't the only reason for Obama delaying the release of the emails be if they were (of course) so damaging and incriminating that they would seriously affect her chances to win the election? If so, then why would the President set himself up in such a way as to certainly have his legacy so tarnished, before he even left office? Would Obama, indeed, knowingly shine the light on himself so glaringly, and invite the inevitable scorn that would be heaped upon him for keeping the country from knowing before the nomination, and be viewed virtually as a criminal, co-conspirator? I'm not sure this is possible. I think there's a good chance he may have done it simply because he doesn't really believe she'll ever get that far.
Furthermore, this theory may also be consistent with the fact that Obama, as the head of the Democratic Party (outranking Debbie Wasserman Schultz), has not instructed the DNC to refer to Madam Secretary as the "presumptive nominee" ("We're not presuming anything." as Ms.Schultz recently stated; click here
). The RNC certainly has no problem with doing so with regard to Mr. Trump. It is, of course, possible that everyone in the establishment except
the DNC is referring to Hillary Clinton as the presumptive nominee because the DNC doesn't want to alienate Sanders and his supporters. Or, perhaps, there really is more to this than meets the eye.
Bernie, in fact, did not drop out of the race, nor has he yet to endorse his opponent, even after meeting with Obama or with Clinton. And one doesn't really get the sense the push to do so was particularly strong.
I realize that this is extreme speculation. But, if the case against Clinton is as airtight as it seems to be, and there will be no avoiding a firestorm once the FBI report comes out, then the President is certainly well aware of the inevitable.
Obama could have even said to Sanders at their meeting, "Hang in there comrade, things are about to move in your direction..."
