Clinton: Chicago Tribune says “Step Aside”

The Chicago Tribune has broken ranks with the controlled media to demand that Democratic Party nominee Hilary Clinton be forced to step down in favor of her vice presidential nominee, Tim Kaine, following the FBI’s announcement that they have reopened their criminal investigation against her.

FBI director James Comey’s announcement “so close to Election Day should tell every thinking person that what the FBI is looking at is extremely serious.”


Well-known Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass started off his piece by asking if “America [had] become so numb by the decades of lies and cynicism oozing from Clinton Inc. that it could elect Hillary Clinton as president, even after Friday’s FBI announcement that it had reopened an investigation of her emails while secretary of state?”

Kass went on to say that it is “obvious the American political system is breaking down.

“It’s been crumbling for some time now, and the establishment elite know it and they’re properly frightened. Donald Trump, the vulgarian at their gates, is a symptom, not a cause. Hillary Clinton and husband Bill are both cause and effect.”

Democrats should, he continued, “hold themselves to the high moral standards they impose on the people they govern,” and demand that Clinton step aside in the face of the latest revelations.

The FBI has said that emails found in connection with the former congressman Anthony Wiener’s “sexting case” are apparently linked to the renewed investigation, and that it involves emails between Clinton and Weiner’s wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

“Democrats should say, honestly, that with a new criminal investigation going on into events around her home-brew email server from the time she was secretary of state, having Clinton anywhere near the White House is just not a good idea,” Kass continued.

“Since October 7, WikiLeaks has released 35,000 emails hacked from Clinton campaign boss John Podesta. Now WikiLeaks, no longer a neutral player but an active anti-Clinton agency, plans to release another 15,000 emails.

“The best thing would be for Democrats to ask her to step down now.

“It would be the most responsible thing to do, if the nation were more important to them than power.

“And the American news media — fairly or not firmly identified in the public mind as Mrs. Clinton’s political action committee — should begin demanding it.

“If you take a step back from tribal politics, you’ll see that Mrs. Clinton has clearly disqualified herself from ever coming near classified information again. If she were a young person straight out of grad school hoping to land a government job, Hillary Clinton would be laughed out of Washington with her record. She’d never be hired.

“As secretary of state she kept classified documents on the home-brew server in her basement, which is against the law. She lied about it to the American people. She couldn’t remember details dozens of times when questioned by the FBI.

“Her aides destroyed evidence by BleachBit and hammers.

“Her husband, Bill, met secretly on an airport tarmac with Attorney General Loretta Lynch for about a half-hour, and all they said they talked about was golf and the grandkids.

“And there was no prosecution of Hillary. That isn’t merely wrong and unethical. It is poisonous.”

The Chicago Tribune article concluded by saying that “If a presidential election is as much about the people as it is about the candidates, then we’ll learn plenty about ourselves in the coming days, won’t we?”

  1. Well done Chicago Tribune. Sadly, corruption within the political arena has never gone away since Watergate, and it’s not just an American problem, it’s rife across Europe.

  2. I`m not from the USA but like many people this election has me gripped. If I were voting I wouldn`t choose either Hillary or Trump.
    Vote Hilary and I imagine puppet-master Bill`s hand permanently up her back dictating the policies.
    Trump`s immigration policies are spot-on for me and he may look the part but as soon as he opens his mouth he`s a buffoon.
    I just can`t see him on the world stage arguing the toss with other world leaders and cutting an impressive figure. He`s unable to debate, endlessly repeats silly slogans and is incapable of cutting to the chase.
    What a choice ……. heaven help the USA!

    1. I’m amused you seem to think scum like Obama, May, Cameron, Merkel can ‘debate’. They never, ever, allow open debate.

  3. September 11 1941 might be forgotten but the Greer was part of an ongoing attack on America. The Rome Statute of the International Criminal court, Article8.2(b)(ii) “intentionally directing attacks against civilian objects, that is, objects which are not military targets.” is a criminal act punishable by international law.
    I do consider the support of the Arab invasion to be an criminal act committed against the American people and no different to the attack on the Greer.

  4. Her only hope is to win and have Comey “suicided” like so many others around these bought and paid for traitors.

  5. Well, the nation is NOT more important to them than power. They are all about power and getting it by any means necessary, which is how they got themselves into this mess.

  6. Corruption runs too deep for this country covering in weeds smoke. Hope trumpet will save the day and the world from satan.

  7. First of all let us clarify one thing. FBI and/or the police are not your friends no matter how tight you close your eyes and plug your ears. Over the years they have become nothing more than a private protection force for “the elite” and their servants.
    Now, let’s get to the point. News is emerging that both, Obummer and Lynch HAVE directly ordered Comey to “stand down”. However, it would seem that Comey has come across some information in this latest batch of emails that is not just damaging to Killary but, undisclosed, would be very damaging to wide circle of individuals and various agencies, including FBI and therefore Comey decided to independantly stand up to bullies and not be a fall guy this time around. I think he is fully aware that if he fails that it is his head on the block.
    Due to his past record of getting Killary off scot free (most likely under pressure, threat on his or his family life or whatever) and current situation where rats are starting to leave the sinking ship (MSM changing tone, celebrities withdrawing support etc.etc.) and to try and make himself look good once again (could be to clear his consciences) he has decided to kick the hornets nest. All the screaming about interfering with election is to be expected from those who have lot invested in Killary and a lot more to lose. However, it is not unprecedented. Some of you might remember election of 1992 when BC was beneficiary of exactly the same scenario. Remember Laurence Walsh and Casper Wainburger?
    However, saying all this, it should have never come so far anyway. 18 U.S. code 2071 clearly states and I quote:
    “whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the US, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both…
    and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the US” end quote.
    This is felony crime and the “server” itself is the crime regardless of what was on it. Killary set up her private server to circumvent the law, end of story.
    Although I hold Trey Gowdy and Mr. Chaffetz in great respect I cannot understand their failure to point to this. And, Comey should have know this as well and from simple fact of setting up private server Killary has shown her criminal intent.
    As the whole new can of worms has been opened I believe that it is not too late to, in addition to whatever comes out of the latest batch of emails which, I believe will be most telling in batch of 10.000 emails called “life insurance” use this information to force her out of campaign for being a US code felon.
    Alas, I believe that she is not going to be around to face any of the crimes that she perpetrated over last 30 or so years. More likely scenario is that Killary will play vanishing act and join her 1.8 billion greenback friends in Qatar.
    Unless you Yanks do something about it…

  8. Heck no. I want her to stay in. More than likely she will be defeated, if not America gets what it deserves. This is truly a cross road for the future of this country. Does America follow a known Satin Ideology Democrat follower or a true business man who is going to destroy the Republican party and give it back to AMERICANS?
