She is hoping to roll into the presidency before, or in spite off, the coming onslaught

You're already accusing her of not having the ethics to drop out of the race voluntarily for something there is no evidence she has ever done. So when did you stop beating your dog, Joey?

Even at this early stage in the investigations it is quite clear she has committed crimes.
The question of the day is 'how does she escape'?

Your assuming guilt for things of which she's not even accused. You've gone of the deep end, my friend.

Sick of people who make everything somehow proof that Hillary committed some crime...no matter how baseless and no matter what the subject...you're on the wrong site, pal.

American don't need things like that to hide their money from taxation. There are plenty of mechanisms in the US Tax Code alone to do that. That's not the case in foreign countries, which is why they need to use outside scams.

All you have to do is look at the Clinton Money Laundry, i.e. "Foundation."

Look at Mitt Romney who has been able to finagle the tax code to pass millions and millions of dollars to his kids without paying taxes.

Look at the corporations that legally park billions of dollars offshore -- and include that in their annual report.

Why would they need to funnel it through Panama?

then I guess beggars would ride.

You're free to wish all you want but chances are you'll be left walking.

I think most people at that elite level are potentially guilty of various financial or electoral scams. It's just a question of who might (almost at random) be implicated in this round of data dumps.

It will be ignored, and/or New laws will be written or bought to protect them, and/or pardon.

I always like to use the term "burnt-soggy-toast" for really obviously bad things.

may be unseemly but I haven't heard anything about it being illegal or indictable. If people (voters, the Democratic establishment, the main street media) are willing to overlook the unseemliness of Bill and Hillary to this point, what makes you think they would care about the Panama Papers.
