In a March 2015 email, Clinton Foundation director of foreign policy Amitabh Desai asked the Clinton campaign whether Bill Clinton could meet with Ukrainian Clinton Foundation billionaire donor Victor Pinchuk.
The purpose of the meeting was to use Bill Clinton as a selling point to other Western leaders, so that Pinchuk could make a statement in opposition to Russian Leader Vladimir Putin.
As you are in the office collecting the data and preparing the presentation for tomorrows meeting, The building shakes and you hear a distant explosion. You look out the panorama windows at the office and see explosions in the distance. You look back at the area of the explosions and realize that is in the direction of your home where your wife and kids are.
I have a pretty concrete understanding of how classified information is handled and how government communications systems work. Delayed from getting home for dinner cause the boss gave you a stupid deadline on a project that was practically impossible to meet? Closer this time and followed immediately by massive explosions.
(Ask Al Gore.) Can close elections end up in court?
(Again, talk to Al.) And is it really possible that nobody emerges as the winner? To win, a candidate needs at least 270 electoral votes, a majority of the 538 that are divided among the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
On November 1, Wiki Leaks released an email that revealed one of the most dubious Racketeering schemes ever devised.
This scheme was between the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton’s, and Foreign Governments.
At the time, Weiner was married to Huma Abedin, Clinton’s personal aide, perhaps best known for her alleged family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
The emails appear to have been found on a computer used by both Abedin and Weiner. That said, in the interest of helping a scandal-weary electorate put these new developments in context, shall we review a few things? Most of that has been in the intelligence community surrounded by classified information.
That last question comes with an added twist this year. A 269-269 tie is mathematically possible, though it’s never happened. An independent protest candidate, Evan Mc Mullin, is in striking rangeto win his home state of Utah and its six electoral votes, which otherwise would be expected to go the Republican, Donald Trump. The 2016 presidential election, already one of the wildest in American history, has been rocked by the announcement that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while Secretary of State.
That raises, at least slightly, the possibility that neither Trump nor Democrat Hillary Clinton amasses the needed 270 electoral votes. Apparently while investigating disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner’s transmission of sexually explicit images to a fifteen-year-old girl, the FBI discovered more emails relevant to Hillary Clinton’s own infamous case.
Every four years, Americans are reminded how little they really know about their Electoral College system.
Is it really possible for a candidate to win the most votes but still lose the presidency?
