Donald Trump and Bill “the Fixer” Clinton spoke for over a half an hour, how much over is in dispute, when both knew that Hillary was going to be the Democratic nominee, within a week or two of Trump announcing his candidacy for the Republican Party’s nominee for president. It is reminiscent of the time when Bill the Fixer and Attorney General Loretta Lynch met on an out-of-the-way Phoenix landing strip where they spoke for over a half and hour while Lynch was overseeing an investigation of Bill’s wife within a week or two of when she and FBI Director James Comey cleared Hillary of any wrongdoing in an open and shut case of wrongdoing.
Do me a favor – ask yourself what these in-plane conversations were about. Why do you think Bill the Fixer was moved to make these moves? One thing you have to conclude is that perhaps they had something to do with Hillary. The tarmac meeting I suggest is easy to smell out — we know everyone in power wants to be as the State Department emails indicated an FOB (friend of bill) – so AG Lynch who has only been in office for a short time since April of last year would like to know what her future will be after Bill’s wife gets into office. You know that Bill appointed Lynch as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York back in 1999 when she was 40-years-old so he and she go back a long time.
You can imagine that conversation quite easily. Bill: “Loretta nice to see you, have you given any thought to what you would like to do after Hillary is elected?”
Hell he didn’t have to say anything more than that. Bill knows how to get a message across. This one was simple. It was to remind Lynch that if she wanted to stay in government service it was best she play ball. Did she say she wanted to be a federal appellate judge or continue as AG?
What was so horrible about that meeting was its brashness. It was like the old days when the gangsters of New York, not that Bill isn’t one, would walk into the local prosecutors office with bags of cash. Who else would have the temerity to meet with the person investigating his wife knowing a decision on her future was imminent and expect to be able to have a secret meeting with that person? The most remarkable thing was that there were no editorials crying foul.
Why was that? Had the media already sold its soul to the Clintons? What is the quid pro quo to the media for doing that? Invitations to the Inaugural Ball? Guests at official White House dinners? Tea with Chelsea?
Speaking of the media deal to speak no evil of Hillary I’m sure you read about the $12 million pledge from Moroccan King Mohammed V to the Clinton Foundation if Hillary would show up for a planned meeting in Morocco. Oh, you missed it. Probably because it wasn’t covered in the U.S. mainstream media but was here. A pure example of a quid pro quo and when asked about it Hillary refused to answer. Why should she? No one will make a big deal out of it plus she already said she had never had any such quid pro quos.
As I said the first contact by Bill the Fixer with Trump was just before Trump announced. What do you suppose was the quid pro quo for Trump jumping into the race? You know Bill the Fixer didn’t call him to keep him out of the race. He knew – remember how often we are told he has the greatest political mind in America – there was only one way the hated Hillary could win. That was if the Republicans during the primary alienated American voters. Who better to do that than the vile, brass, bigot, womanizer Trump.
And, don’t for a minute think the Clintons were not aware of allegations by other women against him and the NBC tape. They do do their homework. They are noted for slash and burn tactics. They spring the trap at just the right time. Remember, back in Arkansas Bill was called Slick Willy.
I suppose he had no idea Trump would get the nomination. That was too much to even dream of although he prayed to his god the Almighty Dollar each night for it to happen. He just wanted him to run to alienate much of America against the Republicans and swing the party to the far right. He knew Trump was the guy who could do it. Some day it will come out how hard Bill the Fixer and the Hated Hillary and the FOBs worked to get Trump the nomination.
Here we stand America with an enfeebled FBI, a Justice Department in the tank, and the White House getting ready to sell indulgences to enrich its occupants. Only rich FOBs need apply.
