I openly admit I am hoping for Clinton's indictment or a transcript leak. [View all]

And I will continue to do so until the last possible moment when she can be replaced as the nominee.

I don't apologize for it. Hillary is a horrible general election candidate, who will cost Democrats dearly. She's also a horrible Democrat, who will cost the most vulnerable among us dearly, even if she does manage a general election win.

She's thoroughly corrupt and dishonest. Such a candidate can never be "fully vetted", as this requires such behavior to be in her past. It isn't.

So, yeah, I hope it does catch up with her, and soon. I hope Democrats do get the chance to nominate a better candidate.

Why shouldn't I?
