RandomThoughts on the pending indictment [View all]

I keep hearing that Hillary won't be charged over the server, you better believe it. Well, technically, this is true. It's not the server, but the content of the emails that were to be hidden and the acts they document. I could lay it out, but I believe that she will face an indictment. She may be able to plea bargain it down, but she will be charged.

If you've gone to the library, girl, and looked it up then you know its true. You would also know it could all have been avoided if *anyone* on her staff would have had the bright idea of a mail forwarding filter. That would have satisfied both the records act and allowed a FOIA request to be fulfilled and none of the personal (oh yeah I'm pretty sure that included a bunch of foundation stuff) emails would have been disclosed.

Of course the damned thing would have still be hanging on the intertubes ready to be plucked like a honeysuckle blossom by any kid playing hopscotch with their NYC skip. But really would manny governments like to have a unfettered access to the communications traffic of the US Secretary of State? Walt star at that for a while and think about the implications. Heads should roll like some pab-subgenus attacked.

The road was long and I am owed beer and travel money.
