Will the next US president be a lesbian psycho?

Hillary Clinton faced an upset in her run for the White House two days ago after the FBI announced a fresh probe into her emails. Investigators will examine new messages to see whether she sent classified information on a private server. Just ten days before Americans go to the polls, the Democrat candidate’s bid to become the first woman US president may be derailed if it is decided she should face criminal charges.
‘I AM INNOCENT!’
Recent Polls suggest Mrs Clinton will trounce Republican rival Donald Trump, who has been struggling to fight allegations about groping women.
But Mrs Clinton will now be forced on the defensive herself in the final days of their vicious election battle.
LD : The latest news is that Hillary’s 12-point lead has been “wiped out” within the last 24 hours, with Hillary now just one point ahead of Trump. This could of course change at any moment, with rapid fluctuations, depending on the volatility of the situation.
FBI director James Comey had recommended earlier this year that the Department of Justice not press charges over emails sent by Mrs Clinton when she was secretary of state under Barack Obama.
But he said ‘recent developments’ had prompted him to take another look. The agency has obtained new emails from an unrelated case that ‘appear pertinent’ to the investigation, said Mr Comey.
A jubilant Mr Trump hailed the dramatic development of a re-opened investigation as ‘bigger than Watergate’, a reference to the corruption scandal that brought down Richard Nixon.‘Bigger than Watergate’
The controversy has weighed heavily on the campaign, challenging Mrs Clinton’s key contention that – unlike her opponent – she would be a safe pair of hands in the White House. Mr Comey announced in July that the FBI’s 12-month investigation into Mrs Clinton’s controversial email traffic while secretary of state was over.
She was criticised for using a private email server rather than the official system to transmit classified information, but escaped prosecution.
In a harshly-worded criticism of her ‘extreme carelessness’ and ‘gross negligence’, Mr Comey said it was possible that hostile foreign governments had gained access to her poorly-protected account.
He also flatly contradicted various Clinton claims although – in explaining why he had not recommended prosecuting her – he accepted there was no evidence she had intentionally jeopardised state secrets.
The scandal has been brandished by Republicans as evidence of Mrs Clinton’s dishonesty and incompetence. Mr Comey informed Congress by letter that his agency had obtained new emails.
They will be reviewed to see if they are significant and if new action against Mrs Clinton is required.
Mr Comey did not give a timeframe for how long this investigation will take. The original FBI probe found that of 30,000 emails Mrs Clinton handed over to the State Department, 110 contained information that was classified at the time she sent or received them.
However, another 33,000 emails went missing.
They were presumed to have been permanently deleted but newly released FBI notes suggested they still exist in several locations and could be recovered. It is unclear whether any of these are involved in the new FBI inquiry.
Law enforcement officials said the newly discovered emails were taken from the electronic devices of senior Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her disgraced husband Anthony Weiner during an investigation in the latter’s ‘sexting’ of girls.
ANTHONY WEINER AND HUMA ABEDIN
Note by LD : Huma Abedin is an American Muslim of Indo-Pakistani descent. Weiner is a disgraced Jewish politician who has been involved in a series of sex scandals. When Huma found out about her husband’s sleazy sexual activities, she was forced to divorce him. This was in August 2016. The unlikely couple had been married for just over six years.
As for Huma, her relationship with Hillary Clinton has been an extraordinarily close one for almost 20 years, so much so that there have been sensational rumors of a lesbian liaison. The view for popular consumption is that Hillary is Huma’s “mentor” and “mother figure”. Hillary once compared Huma to her own daughter Chelsea. “I have one daughter,” she said. “But if I had a second daughter, it would be Huma.” Huma’s real mother, noting that Hillary had now replaced her in her daughter’s affections, once told Hillary jokingly, “I’m jealous of you!” (See here)
TOM LEONARD continues :
Weiner, a former Democrat congressman for New York, became embroiled in a series of scandals over exchanging sexually explicit text messages with a string of women.
He separated from Miss Abedin, vice chairman of the Clinton campaign, in August.
It is understood the FBI is investigating Weiner after it was revealed that he had been sexting a high school student who was 15 at the time. Mr Trump reacted with delight to Mrs Clinton’s 11th-hour election nightmare.
Addressing a jubilant crowd in New Hampshire, Trump said:
‘Hillary Clinton’s corruption is on a scale we’ve never seen before. We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office.’
Mr Trump had previously criticised the FBI and Department of Justice for not bringing charges against his election opponent.
His running mate, Mike Pence, called on the FBI to immediately release all the emails pertinent to the investigation, adding: ‘The American people have a right to know.’
The Republican vice presidential candidate told a rally in Pennsylvania, that he and Donald Trump ‘commend the FBI for having the courage to reopen the case’.
Chants of ‘Lock her up!’ came even before Mr Pence referenced the FBI investigation.
Mrs Clinton ignored shouted questions from reporters about the new FBI investigation as she walked off her plane in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, the most senior Republican in Congress, said she had betrayed Americans’ trust for handling ‘the nation’s most important secrets.
