this is already a prima facie case. 
I honestly don't think you know what that word means

But, fwiw, I neither know, nor care, if Clinton is telling the truth, or did something wrong.

You seem to place great valence on certain issues, no doubt influenced by your priors. I could care less. Clinton is not my preferred candidate. I just make Bayesian predictions. That's why I still think that Clinton will be the Democratic nominee - not because I support her, but because I know that Sander and O'Malley will never win the primaries, and no one else has (yet) announced their candidacy, and the Clinton, to date, has gone far past anyone else in the invisible primary. Also? Most voters aren't paying attention right now, so while you might care deeply, unless something real develops (which is unlikely) this will just be considered more partisan smoke- people who don't like her will continue to not like her, people who do like her will think it's a partisan witchhunt, and people in the middle (all three of them) won't be able to tease out the details a year from now.

Based upon what I know, I find it exceptionally unlikely that this will amount to anything. In addition, you have misinterpreted the facts to date (IMO). That doesn't mean you can't be right. Anything can happen. Maybe there will be some smoking gun. Maybe the constant "drip drip" of revelation will erode Clinton's support and cause her to drop out of the race. But I doubt it- and I find wagers tend to clarify matters.
Loki, you know how much I HATE the idea the agreeing with you, even remotely, on anything, but also factor in that this guy already claims to not only know what WILL happen in the future but what DID happen in the past. He was there I guess??? So much for due process. A Republican said she did it. She must have done it.

Lol if a Republican said Clinton did it then she did it?  Really? What if 2 of Obama's inspectors general said she did it then referred it to the FBI?  Then the FBI has to investigate it and finds 18 USC 793 and maybe 1943 has been broken? 

Can we assume on prima facie that Hillary Clinton might have commuted a felony or the FBI is on a partisan witchunt?

Because shucks, golly gee those 'publicans are so powerful they got Obama, his inspectors general and the FBI doing the bidding. 

And btw Hillary is going through due process right now.  Lets see if it ends up being a felony .  She's probably clean like bill Cosby.  Or was his due process squashed like Clinton?

Just sayin. 
Perhaps I'm jumping the gun but what the hell. Clinton is toast, like Nixon was toast.

Cin seems to have "should" confused with "will"

I remember a kid I grew up with telling me once when another kid threatened to kill him "He CANT do that" "what?" "He'd go to jail, so he CAN"T, this isn't some movie, this is REAL LIFE, get a clue!!!!"  (I almost felt the need to pop popcorn and get a rain coat and goggles to sit in the front row for the show)

The kid lived, and no doubt thought that "proof" of his theory, but it blows my mind to this day. Prison is filled with murderers but Ted Kennedy wasn't sharing a cell with anyone of them. Nor will Hillary.

Kids make all kinds of promises they can't keep.  You are right about real life. FBI on your ass is as real as it gets.

I'm not wagering anything (I dont think that would be fair to you) but the details of the wager sound interesting.

You do at least acknowledge that basically anything can happen. Perhaps the world will end tomorrow, as we know it.  You even NOW recognize that she could be prosecuted. Good.

Look, Lok---this is already a prima facie case.  This is already out of the barn simply on the sheer facts of the case. 

Whether you want to recognize that this is historically significant it is popcorn popping ready made and enjoyable, prima facie enjoyable.

And it will come down to 18usc 793.

I dont think your belief that the new York times debunking this criminal case holds water. Because the FBI has confirmed illegal activity with regard to Hillary Clinton's government correspondence.

Remember the Republican establishment was going ahead full steam until the FBI concluded its " security investigations" of Richard Nixon.  You should see what those odds that he would win again.  2 to 1.

Like you say Clinton is a sure thing to lock down the nomination right up until she isn't. ;)

Such fun, lok right?  More fun than the Donald's antics because this stuff matters right now.  The Donald's gonna be around for a while.  Clinton's time is nigh.

I love the banter, man.

Years ago I used to post on this board prior to making my law school decision and during law school and just thought an update would be nice. 

I am writing this for anyone scared or uncertain about law school and to give an honest first hand account of my experience.

The post below was made after my 1L grades were released and I was satisfied then and am satisfied years later.

 I finished in the top quarter of my class and a little better than that not top 10% and not outside of the top 20% so if anyone cares they can make a guess,  I was involved in mock-trial,  on a journal, etc.

The day after graduation I did not have a job offer, because like everyone else I had to study for the bar exam. Firms, etc were interested, but they all said let us know what happens with the bar.

I took the bar and passed first time, but it was terrifying the day after I got my results I was offered 3 jobs none of, which made me a millionaire overnight and I actually accepted the lower paying one, because it was something I wanted to do. After a few years I changed jobs to make a bit more money, which was not that hard to do, but I had to work for it. I certainly felt scared that I would fail the bar, never get a job, etc during law school and the bar exam. I was also lucky to get a job right after results were released several of my friends did not get offers for a few more months.

The point of this is to give a brief and honest opinion about attending GGU or any other law school. I was clearly an above average student at GGU, which is a marginal ABA school reputation wise at best. However, the professors, programs, etc were great and I loved the experience. I would choose GGU again if I had to, but I know there were some disappointed students.

I was a solid student, but I did not have a job at graduation and neither did the majority of my friends at Hastings or USF, but as far as I know everyone that took the bar and passed has gone on to obtain legal employment, but it was not easy.

So to anyone reading about GGU or considering attending any school that is not Harvard you can get a job as a lawyer they exist, but GGU or these other schools will not pass the bar for you or result in employers saying wow he was the 38th best student at X school, we need to find a way to hire him/her. That will not happen either.

In summary use common sense when applying to law school. I feel the amount of misinformation regarding law school is overwhelming, but common sense goes a long way.

GGU and schools of its elk do not guarantee success or failure.

THIS is a better south park example of politics IMHO

We should apply this to America.

Made an analogy that didn't make a much sense and not surprisingly my bad analogy is confusing.

So my point if I you even really want to call it that is that people get really worked up about Politics for no reason. In my opinion anyone seriously running for office "I don't consider Trump" a serious candidate is capable of doing a fine job. Hilary Clinton is smart and politically savy, Jeb Bush is as well, Obama is as well, I could go on and on, but any serious candiate for office will do a fine job. Sure you might prefer one over the other, but despite what Fox News says about Democrats and MSNBC says about Republicans the world will likely be fine. I.E. had Romney been elected President (There would still be problems in the Middle East, Stocks would go down/up, on and on, you would pay income tax maybe a little less under Romney, but deal with a few more societal problems or pay a little more to have a few less societal problems.)  So essentially if anyone with the possible exception of Trump, wins the election I am sure we will all be able to rant on LSD and go about our lives. Therefore, I don't understand why anyone cares that much about politics.

The point about wrestling is that they are huge and strong and whoever the champion is right now can probalby bench 300lbs and the next one will be able to as well. Just as Obama is smart we all survived, George W. is smart and we all survived, Clinton was smart we all survived, Bush #1 is smart and we all survived, Reagan on and on. They all made both good and bad decisions, but at the end of the day whoever is the Politican will not impact our lives as much as people think.

See South Park Episode when Obama wins the Presidency and everyones problems are not fixed.
