Clinton may have been born in Chicago, but one of her hometown’s two most prominent papers – the Chicago Tribune – has just told her to drop out of the race.
“Has America 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?” read an opinion piece from John Kass published by the Tribune on Tuesday.
“FBI director James Comey’s announcement about the renewed Clinton email investigation is the bombshell in the presidential campaign. That he announced this so close to Election Day should tell every thinking person that what the FBI is looking at is extremely serious,” it continued.
“This can’t be about pervert Anthony Weiner and his reported desire for a teenage girl. But it can be about the laptop of Weiner’s wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin, and emails between her and Hillary. It comes after the FBI investigation in which Comey concluded Clinton had lied and been ‘reckless’ with national secrets, but said he could not recommend prosecution.”
“So what should the Democrats do now?” Kass wrote. “If ruling Democrats hold themselves to the high moral standards they impose on the people they govern, they would follow a simple process: They would demand that Mrs. Clinton step down, immediately, and let her vice presidential nominee, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, stand in her place.”
To think that Tim Kaine has become preferable to the presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.
However, Kass said that the alternative is even worse:
“What if she is elected?” he wrote. “Think of a nation suffering a bad economy and continuing chaos in the Middle East, and now also facing a criminal investigation of a president. Add to that congressional investigations and a public vision of Clinton as a Nixonian figure wandering the halls, wringing her hands.”
