Will Barack Obama Delay Or Suspend The Election If Hillary Is Forced Out By The New FBI Email Investigation?

barack-obama-and-hillary-clinton-in-the-white-house-public-domainJust when it looked like Hillary Clinton was poised to win the 2016 election, the FBI has thrown a gamechanger into the mix. On Friday, FBI Director James Comey announced that his agency has discovered new emails related to Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information that they had not previously seen. According to the Associated Press, the newly discovered emails “did not come from her private server”, but instead were found when the FBI started going through electronic devices that belonged to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her husband Anthony Weiner.  The FBI has been looking into messages of a sexual nature that Weiner had exchanged with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, and that is why they originally seized those electronic devices.  According to the Washington Post, the “emails were found on a computer used jointly by both Weiner and his wife, top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, according to a person with knowledge of the inquiry”, and according to some reports there may be “potentially thousands” of emails on the computer that the FBI did not have access to previously.  Even though there are less than two weeks to go until election day, this scandal has the potential to possibly force Clinton out of the race, and if that happens could Barack Obama delay or suspend the election until a replacement candidate can be found?

Let’s take this one step at a time.  On Friday, financial markets tanked when reports of these new Clinton emails hit the wires.  The following comes from CNN

After recommending earlier this year that the Department of Justice not press charges against the former secretary of state, Comey said in a letter to eight congressional committee chairmen that investigators are examining newly discovered emails that “appear to be pertinent” to the email probe.

“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear pertinent to the investigation,” Comey wrote the chairmen. “I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.”

At this point, we do not know what is contained in these emails.  But without a doubt Huma Abedin is Hillary Clinton’s closest confidant, and I have always felt that she was Clinton’s Achilles heel.  Journalist Carl Bernstein (of Watergate fame) is fully convinced that the FBI would have never made this move unless something significant had already been discovered

We don’t know what this means yet except that it’s a real bombshell. And it is unthinkable that the Director of the FBI would take this action lightly, that he would put this letter forth to the Congress of the United States saying there is more information out there about classified e-mails and call it to the attention of congress unless it was something requiring serious investigation. So that’s where we are…

Is it a certainty that we won’t learn before the election? I’m not sure it’s a certainty we won’t learn before the election.

One thing is, it’s possible that Hillary Clinton might want to on her own initiative talk to the FBI and find out what she can, and if she chooses to let the American people know what she thinks or knows is going on. People need to hear from her…

If the FBI has indeed found something explosive, would they actually charge her with a crime right before the election?

It is possible, but we also have to remember that government agencies (including the FBI) tend to move very, very slowly.  If there are thousands of emails, it is going to take quite a while to sift through them all.  And of course Barack Obama has lots of ways that he could influence, delay or even shut down the investigation.

So those that are counting on this to be the miracle that Donald Trump needs should not count their chickens before they hatch.

But if Hillary Clinton were to be forced out of the race by this FBI investigation, the Democrats would have to decide on a new candidate, and that would take time.  The following is from a U.S. News & World Report article that examined what would happen if one of the candidates was forced out of the race for some reason…

If Clinton were to fall off the ticket, Democratic National Committee members would gather to vote on a replacement. DNC members acted as superdelegates during this year’s primary and overwhelmingly backed Clinton over boat-rocking socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

DNC spokesman Mark Paustenbach says there currently are 445 committee members – a number that changes over time and is guided by the group’s bylaws, which give membership to specific officeholders and party leaders and hold 200 spots for selection by states, along with an optional 75 slots DNC members can choose to fill.

But the party rules for replacing a presidential nominee merely specify that a majority of members must be present at a special meeting called by the committee chairman. The meeting would follow procedures set by the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee and proxy voting would not be allowed.

It would be extremely challenging to get a majority of the members of the Democratic National Committee together on such short notice.  If Clinton were to drop out next week, it would be almost impossible for this to happen before election day.

In such a scenario, Barack Obama may attempt to invoke his emergency powers.  Since the election would not be “fair” until the Democrats have a new candidate, he could try to delay or suspend the election.  There would be a lot of controversy as to whether this is legal or not, but Barack Obama has not let the U.S. Constitution stop him in the past.

Meanwhile, new poll numbers show that the Trump campaign was already gaining momentum even before this story about the new emails broke.  According to a brand new ABC News/Washington Post survey, Donald Trump is now only trailing Hillary Clinton by 4 points after trailing her by as much as 12 points last weekend.

And CNBC is reporting on a highly advanced artificial intelligence system that accurately predicted the outcomes of the presidential primaries and which is now indicating that Trump will be the winner in November…

An artificial intelligence system that correctly predicted the last three U.S. presidential elections puts Republican nominee Donald Trump ahead of Democrat rival Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House.

MogIA was developed by Sanjiv Rai, founder of Indian start-up It takes in 20 million data points from public platforms including Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in the U.S. and then analyzes the information to create predictions.

The AI system was created in 2004, so it has been getting smarter all the time. It had already correctly predicted the results of the Democratic and Republican Primaries.

Without Hillary at the top of the ticket, the odds of a Trump victory would go way, way up.

So if Hillary is forced out of the race by this investigation, Barack Obama and the Democrats will want to delay or suspend the election for as long as possible if they can.

At this point there is probably not a high probability that such a scenario will play out, but in this crazy election year we have already seen that just about anything can happen.

    In a case like this the speaker of the house should be the controlling factor in this case . Obama ‘s term is over ! And as for the case against Hillary I almost bet you it deals with the NWO , UN take over of America and the foreign troops they have been bringing in to take America over ! In this case the FBI has proved unable to do what is right , the congress men investigating the case needs to see all the evidence and make a judgement of a trial or dismiss it . But if done rightly Hillary , Billy , Obama , Bushs , Clinton and some other presidents will stand trial for Treason against America and its citizens ! Their executive orders presidents have used are also treason and has been setting up America for the hangmans noose . Our Constitution is plain the president does not make law such as executive orders . And according to the Constitution it is dictatorship ! Every executive order needs to be destroyed and removed . It is not the law of the land by our Constitution ! A great example is Johnson sealing Kennedy’s death investigation for 50 years . Then when it was opened part of it was sealed again , because by what some have said one of our presidents had or either killed Kennedy . He was the person in the grassy nole . Here is a great example of covering up murder with executive orders ! There should not be such an order of high office ! When the evil unfolds many of the democrats will be among those that Our Constitution says should hang for treason against America , it’s Constitution and the American people . There will also be republicans that are really rogue democrats in sheepskin clothing trying to help destroy that party . The American people need to press this issue , because their is criminal actions that will come out in these emails that these idiots have set Americans up for . There are videos of democrats which I have seen taking the early ballots and giving the vote to Hillary . Many illegals are voting as well as dead people being registered by democrats people . One person in Virginia registered 19 dead people that he was going to become in order to vote for another criminal 19 times . This could be stopped if a card of ID was used . But No it might catch a criminal trying to vote for a criminal themselves . Well then that would be one less criminal on our streets and one less that the American tax payer would have to deal with maybe invading their homes or stealing the things they worked hard to get . Not to mention even murdering them !

    All the ridiculous excuses and red tape games. Put Bernie Sanders in her place and vote.
    As for Obama, might he also be an accessory to the Hillary debacle??? That would give the military grounds for arrest. Isn’t there anything in the constitution stating where his dictates can be ignored if a party to treason???

    Hate to confess am very glad the criminals are being exposed. We deserve better leaders.

  • Tennessee Dan

    There is no precedent to delaying an election because a candidate drops out. We have a green party, libertarian party, constitution party, republican party, and god knows how many independent candidates . If the democrats cant show a horse for this race, too bad. Sucks to be them.

    Obama is not in play when it comes to any presidential election. Even his own. I’m pretty sure your government class in high school covered this. The book couldn’t have been more then a 125 pages long. If you were skipping class that year just stroll by a book store and pick one up. By the way things are looking for Hillary, it might come in real handy as a reference.

  • Counter Analysis

    I think this is a ploy to extend Obama’s reign. I find it hard to believe the FBI really gives a crap about perverted Weiner. He can be dealt with by local authorities. If one assumes the FBI has integrity, then maybe what they were really after is evidence of Huma Abedin involved in espionage. She reportedly has links to various radical Muslim groups as well as Saudi Arabia. Hillary could feed intelligence to her Saudi backers by transmitting it to Huma via email who then does whatever she does to expose it to intercept vulnerability.

    The other possibility, extending Obama’s reign, could result if Hillary is indicted and Obama promises to pardon her if she steps down for the good of the party and country. Then Obama is free to enact his reign of terror while elections are suspended to give the democrats a chance to choose another nominee. This seems like the most likely scenario give that Comey has done nothing but obstruct justice throughout the email case. There is a chance that Comey’s hand was forced by his honest underlings who are fed up with his obstruction of justice and may have threatened a public sh@t-storm if he didn’t go public with the new findings. If that is the case, I would expect an announcement in the next few days that it was a false alarm with no significant new revelations. The backlash would either help Hillary or else negate the damage that’s been done to her campaign.

    There is no question in my mind that Obama is planning something. It’s interesting how he has waited so long and now right before the election. A few weeks ago when Comey didn’t do anything to Clinton Obama kept quite. Now all of a sudden the FBI is on her again and I believe it’s because Obama gave them the okay to do so. He does not like the Clintons so he won’t let her win and he doesn’t like Trump so he won’t let him win either. And the way this country is set up anymore all Obama needs to do is enter Michelle into that election as Clinton’s replacement and she would win in a landslide. Many of Trump’s followers are voting for him because they do not like Clinton, so most of them will assuredly jump to MIchelle. When you see how the DNC would explode with the thought of an Obama staying in the White House it would be a slaughter.

    • JKnTX

      Sorry, but Moochelle would never win by a landslide anywhere but in some drug induced delusion.
