ANALYSIS/OPINION:

“A conservative crack-up, or Hillary’s?” (Web, May 10), while an excellent piece that covers the issues, fails for understandable reasons to face the true endgame of the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton. The endgame is not the response of establishment insiders. Rather, it is the responses of the alienated, angry and utterly distrusting-of-government supporters of both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump — should the investigation yield a failure-to-convict conclusion.

Everyone outside the Beltway is fully aware that the focus of FBI Director James Comey’s investigation is but the tip of the iceberg. The true voter concern is with the sleaze and corruption that has surrounded Mrs. Clinton’s entire life, from cattle futures and Whitewater to ‘Benghzi-gate,’ ‘Wall-Street-gate,’ ‘Email-gate’ and on to where the really big money is, the Clinton Family Foundation. As much as the establishment media tries to ignore and lie about these issues, the public today has access to multiple sources of information that speak to multiple convictions.

No one can accurately predict what will happen should the current investigation fail to sink ‘Titanic Hillary.’ The safest bet, however, is that it will not be pretty.
