If you have seen the FBI investigators press conference, then it should be accepted that the scandal is in fact a real thing. So one piece of bad news leads to others, namely the revealing of the close working of the Clinton foundation to her official job in the Gov. These facts don't surprise me in and of themselves because I think if all politicians were given the anal exam of their E-mails and relations, pay for play would be seen as common practice. It doesn't surprise me because of the anecdotal evidence in my personal life. Specifically, I am acquaintances(I have done work for him, and attend the same church) with a local ship builder(Think large company). He regularly places bids for Gov work. His testimony was that once Obama was elected the facade of legality was dropped. That is, kick backs were common to win a bid for the gov, but there was a change where the gov officials would come strait out with no sugar coating.. "I need 10 million if you want this bid".. . Where am I to get this 10 million? ... "Add it to your bid, I don't care.. you wan't the contract, give me 10 million".
So, I'm not personally surprised by the fact this stuff is coming out. What is funny to me, is that no one asked these questions when Trump came out and said strait up, that he had taken part in pay for play, that is why Hillary was at his wedding. He made a big donation.. and he made her attend. http://gawker.com/donald-trump-i-pai...ddi-1722622546. I didn't even stop to think about what he was saying at the time.. but come to think of it, isn't that illegal? Why didn't anyone investigate? I'm not talking about just investigate him, I mean the foundation because that is the definition of pay to play.
---What really surprises me.
What really surprises me, is that non of these facts move the polling. Hillary under investigation to be found "extremely careless" and now she will be investigated or is, about pay for play shenanigans.
Some will cry that this stuff is all made up, but it really isn't. Hillary says there is a lot of smoke but no fire. But the seriousness of pay for play is a bar that enough smoke should get you in jail. Certainly many politicians would be in jail.. but that is the point! Trump was correct when he said (in link provided) that the system is broken, and this is very sad, because people don't care and it is a YUGE deal.
What should happen? What should we think if the polls are not moved at all by such a serious exposure of corruption?
Also, how in the world are we still tolerating all these calls of racism? As a society we can never get past racism if it gets so much attention and is so commonly falsely accused. It is crying wolf that hurts the actual cause when it does occur.
