This is my conclusion given that today we saw King Obama come fore square in attack mode on Donald Trump and hence in support of Hillary Clinton to be the next Presdent.
It is inconceivable that Obama would make this attack if he did not have some comfort in knowing that the investigation by the FBI will not lead to charges against Mrs . Clinton. There is one thing for certain : Obama will want to ensure friendly people in the White House as he begins his retirement from that place and hence a neutral outcome to the e mail scandal would help to see this happen.
Ah, the wheels within wheels that find an easy place in a democracy.
