In my opinion, the Democrats are about to make history today. It is almost certain that madam Hillary will get enough delegates to be their presumptive nominee (since New Jersey will likely break for her, and California, given the proportional allotment, will likely hand over about 200+ more where only 60 are needed).
The news is very full of the “Historic” nature of this, as it will be the first time a major party has had a woman as their nominee for POTUS.
Yet I don’t see that as very “historic” at all. IMHO we are supposed to select the most suited person for the job, without really caring at all about gender. I know I don’t. (God what I’d give to have a Maggie Thatcher clone on the GOP side… of any gender.)
No, IMHO, the historic part is that this will be the first time a major party has selected as their nominee someone under Federal Indictment (yes, it’s only an investigation now and it is a race condition on when the indictment comes, or if Obama grants a blanket pardon instead…) and up to their neck in (asserted) charity fraud.
But at least we will know, for certain, what the majority of Democratic Party Members think about fraud, deceit, lack of morality, lawlessness and criminality in office.
At about 6 minutes, there’s an interesting statement of “epic charity fraud” ; then at 11 minutes an assertion that about $100 Million ‘went missing’ between sender of the funds and what arrived inside the Clinton Foundation. I’ve not vetted the site, or the author. I’d not gone looking for this. I had installed Opera Mini on the tablet and this was in the “suggested” or trending batch of stuff, so I clicked it.
The guy claims the data he uses is “in the public domain” and available on public web sites, so ought to be easy to cross check his cross-checking of the Clinton Foundation. Here’s his site:
I found these comments to the video interesting too:

This guy better be careful he doesn’t have a clintonesque “accident” or end up in the news as a suicide.
I suspect that Bernie is staying in the race to the end out of a strong sense of what is right… unlike the Clintons who are in it for the power, money, and “top cover” for apparent criminal activity (per what the FBI is investigating and the video asserts).
Final note: Disclaimer: I have no special information source, all this is only one person’s opinion of what other news sources have reported. I could easily be wrong in my opinion and it is subject to change if any actual facts show up, like the missing emails or that the video is not correct. Disclosure: I donated above the average amount to Bernie. I donated $30, so I am somewhat biased about Bernie. I’m an “ABC” voter. Anyone But Clinton.

So anyone wanting to paint me as a Right Wingnut will have to chew on that first… IMHO, either Trump or Bernie would shake up D.C. enough to get some of the rot out, and I’ll take either of them before Hillary. I’m a registered Independent for a reason… I tend to choose honesty and integrity over any particular political philosophy. I believe honest, moral, intelligent folks govern fairly.
