There is a reason that so many of Hillary’s political donors also give to the family foundation, and it’s not because they have never heard of the Red Cross; Bribes disguised as "charitable gifts": Hillary Clinton's possible legal trouble; House Select Committee On Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy knew about Mrs. Clinton’s secret email server six months ago and did nothing about it, and that too is a scandal; Thanks to Hillary’s flouting of record-keeping laws, the substance of her communications with Obama — on Benghazi, say — remains a mystery; It's beginning to dawn on Democrats that Hillary Clinton is not even a has-been, but a never-was and never-will-be - or what I've been saying for over two years now - leaving the path to the Democrat nomination wide open for the Massachusetts senator NOT named Ed Markey; But can Republicans think "outside the box" sufficently to actually take a stab at winning instead of taking their usual dive?
