AND this Drudge headline: "OBAMA EMAILED HILLARY 18 TIMES! (CLAIMED HE LEARNED FROM MEDIA.)""The department announced that 18 emails exchanged between Mrs. Clinton and President Obama would also be withheld, citing the longstanding practice of preserving presidential communications for future release."
The permanent government (i.e. federal bureaucracy) is up in arms about the threat to their "Mandate of Heaven" represented by the imminent foundering of the SS Hillary Clinton. The fact that Hillary has the keys to the kingdom in terms of message traffic and insider knowledge of the White House-originated conspiracy against the Constitution known as Fast and Furious makes the timing on how the Obamanoids deal with this very dicey. To accomplish the removal of the Clintons from the election in time to substitute a Biden/Elizabeth Warren switcheroo, they have to have Hillary's agreement to accept a preemptive pardon. If Hillary decides to go all Samson on them and pull down the temple with her, they're screwed. If Hillary waits too long to work the deal offered, she's screwed. The FBI underlings are said to be in open revolt already with whistleblowing sounding in the distance and yet THEY, as an institution, are interested in keeping their participation in F&F via the actual smuggling of arms by their creatures the Miramontes brothers a secret. There's enough blackmail material here to make the eyes of the most corrupt and Byzantine operative of the Tsarist secret police in Hell permanently crossed.
