Monica Crowley has come to the conclusion I came to over five months ago: the Obama White House must have told the gatekeepers to close the gates in Hillary’s face. The only question is why.

Writes Crowley, in her article “Why Obama is torpedoing Hillary Clinton”:

If Mr. Obama does not want an investigation to go forward, it does not go forward. Witness the scandals involving the Internal Revenue Service, Benghazi, Veterans Administration and Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning. In each case, Mr. Obama claimed he learned about the scandal “from the news.” (That’s interesting coming from a guy who claims he only rarely watches or reads said “news.”)

He then expressed his “outrage” and vowed to “get to the bottom” of each scandal. (Of course, it’s tough to “get to the bottom” of something when you are the bottom of it.)

In those cases, he protesteth too much. His faux outrage was a “tell” that he had no intention of investigating. In Mrs. Clinton’s case, he’s been quiet. Too quiet. That’s a “tell” that he wants this investigation pursued, likely to the point of charging her.

For me, the biggest “tell” was the media. The MSM knows how to ignore a story when it’s inconvenient to their chosen narrative. Witness their breathtaking negligence on the Planned Parenthood story, and before that, the Gosnell story.

Consider how they denied oxygen to the myriad Obama scandals that have broken over the years, letting game-changing bombshells burn out and ushering in a more convenient lead story. Obama would never have been elected had they have done due diligence on Obama’s outrageously radical past that should have torpedoed his campaign.

Most of the anti-Hillary stuff is coming from the New York Times and Washington Post, his house organs. Now, even government-funded NPR is getting in on the fun with a story about how federal authorities are getting ready to step up their “inquiry” into Hillary’s “unique email arrangement”:

Two lawyers familiar with the inquiry told NPR that a formal criminal investigation is under consideration and could happen soon – although they caution that Clinton herself may not be the target.

Actually, Clinton herself may not be the only target.
