A Truckload from

So why is she still running free, and running for President? Holder Hosts 'Lawyers for Hillary' as FBI Investigation Goes On. Kurt Schlicter reviews Clinton’s Crimes and Comey’s Choice. And Hillary Clinton is not the only Democrat facing legal problems this cycle. Tammy Duckworth is in the reticles, too.

Columnist Worries Trump's 'Crooked Hillary' Moniker Could Stick
As the general election campaign nears, Trump has settled on a label for the likely Democratic nominee: “Crooked Hillary.”
....The problem for Hillary Clinton is that he may be right.
All campaign long, pollsters have found that many voters — including some Democrats — don't think she's principled. Maybe it's her four decades in bare-knuckle politics, ancient questions about investment deals in Arkansas, her entanglement in her husband's personal scandals, her decision to set up a private email server when she was secretary of State, her big-dollar fundraising and speech fees — or all of the above. Fairly or not, Clinton can't shed her history.
“Fairly or not?” Clearly, the liberal media see any focus on her past ethical scraps -- "ancient" or recent -- as unfair. They know her numbers on trust are terrible. They just hope Trump’s are worse.
Clinton Controversies Drag On as Next Phase of Campaign Begins - Questions about the Clinton foundation, e-mails, and the Benghazi committee are set to linger through summer. Financial analyst alleges major holes in Clinton Foundation records. Think of the Clinton Foundation as Hillary's resume. On Clinton Cash, Or, It’s Always Worse Than You Think.
Are you worried about “money in politics”? Stop the car, get an extended-stay room, and take a long hard look at the Clintons’ operation for the last sixteen years.

The Associated Press estimated that their net worth when they left the White House in 2000 was zero (really, minus $500K). Now they are worth about $200 million.

How did they do it? By “reading The Wall Street Journal” (classical reference)?

Not quite. The Clintons have perfected pay-to-play political influence peddling on a breathtaking scale. Reading Clinton Cash is a nauseating experience.
A voice from the grave: Christopher Hitchens on The Case Against Hillary Clinton - "Why on earth would we choose to put the Clinton family drama at the center of our politics again?" Truer today than when he wrote it.

Salon? This is one weak nominee: Hillary Clinton’s problem isn’t Bernie Sanders. It’s Hillary Clinton
Look no further than the 2000 election, when another policy-wonk Democrat with little charm or charisma—Al Gore—failed to ride his impressive credentials to the White House. Gore, a two-term vice president with prior lengthy service in both the Senate and House, lost to an anti-intellectual GOP opponent with no Washington experience. Sound familiar?
Shot: Washington Post - Even supporters agree: Clinton has weaknesses as a candidate. What can she do? Chaser: Washington Examimer - Media lay the groundwork for Hillary, the victim.

Stuffingenvelopes attacks Trump, Trump rightfully attacks George as Hillary tool:

Irony alert: New York Times Oh-So Concerned that Hillary Clinton May Be Running Against a Womanizer. Bill's ex-mistress and former Miss Arkansas Sally Miller remembers:  Hillary and her ‘coke habit’ not to mention her lesbian tendencies NTTAWWT. She's at least as objective as Stuffingenevelopes. Even Bill is having a hard time lately: Bill Clinton's rough day on the trail -
Friday the 13th was an unlucky date for the former president. You wonder why he does it.

Penn Jillette on the Clintons: Quote of the Day
On his weekly podcast, libertarian magician and skeptic Penn Jillette gave an incisive take on Hillary and Bill Clinton.
We have Hillary Clinton — while you were alive, while you were sexually active, three years ago — saying marriage is just between a man and a woman. ...
And yet many people in [the gay community] are supporting Hillary, and their reason for supporting her is that "she was always in favor of gay rights, but she had to say what she had to to be elected." …
She came out in favor of the pacific trade deal, very strongly in favor of it, and now she’s against it.
And that’s not seen as flip-flopping, it’s not really seen as a revelation or learning something — it’s seen as "she is politically expedient, and we want someone who is politically expedient."
The followers of Hillary Clinton seem to think they have a secret deal with her — where they understand what she really believes, what she’s really going to do — and they are willing to support her as she bends the truth in order to be elected. …
Why do the people who support Hillary think that what she’s saying is to manipulate other people and not to manipulate them?
They had the same secret deal with Obama.

Little Is Off Limits as Donald Trump Plans Attacks on Hillary Clinton Much of Trump's appeal is his willingness to say things that other Republicans wouldn't for fear of being labelled mean. He understands it's going to happen in any event. You have to score the points to win.

538 founder Nate Silver gives Donald Trump 25 percent chance of beating Hillary Clinton
Political prognosticator Nate Silver said Sunday that he gives Republican Donald Trump a 25 percent chance of winning the 2016 presidential election, while noting that he has been wrong before.
 Take it for what it's worth.

Mr. Silver admitted that he initially gave Mr. Trump only a 5 percent chance of capturing the Republican nomination, saying he would peak early and “flame out” like 2012 presidential contender Herman Cain.
More updates to come, no doubt.
