Boehner Thinks Clinton Will Withdraw From Presidential Race

Former US Speaker John Boehner has said that it is very likely that Hillary Clinton will withdraw from the presidential race due to her email scandal.

Boehner has been speculating that Hillary Clinton’s legal troubles are so serious that it’s possible we will see Vice President Joe Biden “parachuting” into the race at the last minute

Speaking at the SALT conference in Las Vegas on Thursday, Boehner said that Democrats may need to turn to Biden to be their 2016 nominee.

Press TV reports:

Republicans have long speculated that the federal investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was US secretary of state could result in criminal charges against her, forcing Biden to seek the nomination.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is likely to interview Clinton in the next few weeks about the issue.  The FBI has already interviewed some of Clinton’s aides, including Huma Abedin, the vice chairwoman of Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The nine-month FBI investigation into whether laws were broken as a result of the server kept in her New York state home has overshadowed Clinton’s campaign.

More than 2,000 emails sent and received by Clinton while working as the top US diplomat between 2009 and 2013 include classified information, which the government bans from being handled outside secure, government-controlled channels.

Last week, a US federal judge in Washington said he may order Clinton to testify under oath about whether she used a private email server.

US District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan signed an order granting a request from the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch to question six current and former US State Department staffers about the creation and purpose of the private email server.

Based on what might be discovered from those interviews, which are to be conducted over the next eight weeks, Sullivan says in his order an out-of-court testimony from Clinton “may be necessary.”

That raises the possibility that Clinton could be ordered to testify in the middle of the US presidential race.

Clinton has come under fire for using her private email account and server. Critics, including Trump, say she endangered government secrets and evaded transparency laws.

According to American political analyst Scott Bennett, the belief that Clinton will crash and burn makes it certain that Biden will seek the nomination.

During a question-and-answer session Boehner made it clear he would be supporting Donald Trump, even though he doesn’t support his policies. “Donald Trump is the nominee, whether people like it or not” he told attendees.

Boehner said anyone who thinks Trump will not win the White House in November should “just watch.”

“This is going to be a presidential campaign like we’ve never seen before,” he said.

    These scumbags should all be hanging by the neck from a tall bridge instead of parading about in front of us as some kind of “leader.”

      I think Isaiah 10:1-4 is most appropriate for the 1% who control both the Republican and Democratic Parties
      1. Woe to those who make unjust laws,
      to those who issue oppressive decrees,

      2 to deprive the poor of their rights
      and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people,
      making widows their prey
      and robbing the fatherless.

      3 What will you do on the day of reckoning,
      when disaster comes from afar?
      To whom will you run for help?
      Where will you leave your riches?

      4 Nothing will remain but to cringe among the captives
      or fall among the slain.

    My hope is that if they try to parachute Biden into the race that there would be outcry at the convention and street demonstrations as there were in 1968 when the Democratic Party establishment parachuted Humphrey into the race. Some of us are old enough to remember that fiasco, and Biden would be the same kind of losing candidate as Humphrey was.

    What the hell? It’s like no one has even noticed that Shillary is NOT the only candidate in this race, and her opponent is the choice of the masses. Have you not seen his rallies? God you people piss me off. Whether you like it not, whether you believe it or not, hundreds of thousands of people will be writing in the name Bernie Sanders come November. You act like we don’t exist at your own peril.
