As more news comes out about Clinton’s email scandal, there have been many conservative voices calling for her to step down.
If an indictment is on the way, she can’t certainly run for president. Republicans are eagerly watching the news for the final hammer to drop.
But, guess what?
It’s not just Trump supporters who are awaiting the Fed’s news. Bernie Sanders supporters are looking at the email scandal, knowing that this issue just might put Hillary away for good.
From the New York Times:
Senator Bernie Sanders may be trailing Hillary Clinton by hundreds of delegates, and Mrs. Clinton may be treating the Democratic nomination as hers, but Julie Crowell, a stay-at-home mother and a die-hard Sanders supporter, is holding out for an 11th-hour miracle: divine deliverance at the hands of the F.B.I.
Like many of Mr. Sanders’s supporters, Ms. Crowell, 37, said she hoped that Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state would eventually yield an indictment, and she described it as the kind of transgression that would disqualify another politician seeking high office.
So it’s not just Republicans who see Hillary as a threat to our nation.
No one, liberals or conservatives, like the idea of a President who’s above the law. If Hillary did in fact break the law knowingly, so she could send communications without accountability, she should be punished. Such a punishment should disqualify her from running.
“If there’s any chance of her getting indicted, they shouldn’t even consider her for the nomination,” said Zachary O’Neill, 21, of Escondido. “We can’t have a criminal in the White House.”
Despite all of our many differences, Americans of all stripes believe in the common good.
We want honest leadership who will put citizens first. We want government that protects us and not controls us. And we don’t want leaders that are blatant criminals, breaking whatever laws they must for their own advantages.
Polls show that an increasing number of Sanders supporters say they will not vote for Mrs. Clinton in November… And while Mr. Sanders has said he will do all he can to defeat Donald J. Trump, the level of vitriol for Mrs. Clinton coursing through Mr. Sanders’s audiences lately — where “Bernie or Bust” signs are common and the mention of his rival prompts boos or shouts of “corporate puppet” — suggests that party unity might be even more difficult to achieve this time.
The more we learn of Hillary Clinton’s email “snafu” the more she’s looking like Nixon. You know the President that said it’s not illegal if he does it.
We just can’t afford another one like that.
