Independence Day

Historically, Independence Day in the US is July 4th, which will be Monday, but a report that I'm seeing at Hot Air might give us all reason to celebrate.  If not this week, then certainly by the third week of July.  It might become possible for US politics to move forward without Hillary Clinton.  Their source report comes from ABC NEws
.Hillary Clinton could be interviewed by the FBI in the coming days as part of an investigation into the former secretary of state and her staff's use of private email to conduct official U.S. State Department business, according to a source familiar with the U.S. Department of Justice's investigation
Well, well.  It looks like the FBI is finally getting ready to wrap up its investigation.  I was beginning to think that this might get swept under the rug, and it might still yet, but it makes the not-so-secret meeting between Bill Clinton and AG Lynch that much more interesting.  It looks like strong forces are coming into play in the weeks before the Democratic National Convention slated to be held on July 25th.

Ed Morrisey gives us a good wrap-up of why the timing is so important that this investigation be finished.
It’s ABC that reports that the motivation to move now comes from a desire to wrap up the probe before the conventions. That detail is also curious. If the FBI doesn’t think a criminal referral involving Hillary will be forthcoming, then the timing really doesn’t matter; Democrats could hold their convention as planned without any changes. If the FBI thinks that there is a good chance of a criminal referral, however, then the timing becomes extremely important, to Democrats and to the nation as a whole. The convention is the last opportunity Democrats have to replace Hillary as the nominee in an organized and orderly manner.
We'll recall that Hillary's IT guy has already been interviewed by the FBI, and in a seperate deposition last month, took the 5th, 125 times during a deposition with Judicial Watch.

This July 4th might be the most auspicious for our Republic since Lee turned south after Gettysburg.

When even Bill Mayer is saying that it is a terrible judgement call, and says that it looks unethical, you know things are going sideways.........

If she's indicted, well and good. If she's not, the only recourse left is to start buying ammo and wait for the confiscation attempts to begin.

Gotta agree with Bob, and I honestly hadn't thought about the correlation, but you're dead on!
