I will not deny that those are technically investigations but the real question is has there been any investigation done regarding Hillary that has been performed when the Executive branch has been out of Obama's control? I think there is ample evidence and reason to suspect Obama's influence over the Justice Department and IRS such that no department under the jurisdiction of the Executive branch can be trusted to be unbiased. After all, again unless I am mistaken, it was the Justice...

Actually, there really has been little to no investigation of Hillary, not like is going on against Trump. With Hillary, there was and still is no Special Investigator for either the events surrounding Benghazi, the emails and the server nor the Clinton Foundation which certainly deserves investigating.

Biden, a man with only one person to blame.

Story about Biden looking toward 2020 There is a lot of press these days about Joe Biden considering a run for President in 2020. One can only imagine the thoughts that run through Joe Biden's mind about what might have been in 2016 if he had actually entered the race. There is no doubt, in my mind, that there were those, potentially Obama himself, who prompted Joe to consider jumping in but I believe Joe Biden knew that it would mean crossing Hillary and that was something he wasn't man...
