6. Democrats need to get it, now.


It seems like at least one of these scenarios have to play out:

1) Hillary is indicted before the Democratic Convention. Sanders would then hopefully be able to step up. And if the DNC types try to pick someone else, the Party would fracture irreparably. Sorry, Biden, but not this time either.

2) Hillary is indicted after the Convention, during the GE. If this happens, Republicans almost certainly win. Welcome to Trumplandia.

3) Hillary is not indicted at all before November (or for that matter, January). If this happens, maybe she has a chance in the GE, but even so, Clinton corruption, the e-mail server, Clinton Foundation issues, etc. are all still issues in the GE: red meat for the Republican base. Maybe the Repub nominee wins due to that, maybe not. But if Hillary does make it through the GE without an indictment and with the majority of votes, what happens on 1/20/17? I'd say that the House opens an investigative committee on the above issues, and government is paralyzed from day 1 via an investigation into whether the "corrupt Obama DOJ" enabled "corrupt Clinton cronyism" and a nepotistic avoidance of justifiable prosecution.

None of these options sounds good to me.
