IT’S HAPPENING: Obama’s Hometown Is DEMANDING That Hillary Do This Before Election…

In the wake of Friday’s stunning news that the FBI had decided to reopen its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email investigation, the Democrat nominee immediately launched a brutal defense.

Well it just went from bad to worse for the Democrat presidential nominee.

Because now liberals themselves are calling for her to STEP ASIDE.

You read right. No less than the very liberal Chicago Tribune — Obama’s hometown paper — called for Clinton to leave the race over the exploding scandal. And the reasons they gave are simply devastating.

To quote from their stunning editorial:

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.

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?

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.

Democrats should say, honestly, that with a new criminal investigation going on into events around her home-brew email server from the time she was secretary of state, having Clinton anywhere near the White House is just not a good idea.

Since Oct. 7, WikiLeaks has released 35,000 emails hacked from Clinton campaign boss John Podesta. Now WikiLeaks, no longer a neutral player but an active anti-Clinton agency, plans to release another 15,000 emails.

What if she is elected? 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.

This is shocking, and unprecedented, especially given Hillary’s superstar status and 30-year political history in the Democrat party.

And the Tribune’s solution is a sure-fire road to failure. If Kaine were to take Hillary’s place as the Democrat nominee, I think people would only care about his stance on a single issue: whether or not he’d pardon Hillary Clinton. Hardly a ringing endorsement for her election over Trump. As coarse as some independents may view Trump, he has no hint of criminal scandal hanging over him, and leads Clinton in key categories, such as the economy and fighting terrorism.

The wheels are truly coming off the Democrat Party train, and no one deserves it more than Hillary Clinton.
