I am pretty sure the press is sitting on the juicy stuff, for perfect timing to screw with the election.

I have a hard time seeing any scenario where anything short of selling nukes to Iran - well, considering Jugears, not even that is off the table - would affect the election.

For instance - much criminality found in the Clinton's holdings for example, plays right into Bernie's whole tack. He's only maybe 80 short of Hitlery right now in delegate count. The only big advantage she has is in super delegates - but they can change their pledge on a dime, just like we saw in '08. Perfect timing to "break" that story if the press wants Bernie is 2 weeks before the convention.

Cruz's wife - who was right in the middle of the '08 fiscal crisis as a partner at Goldman-Sachs - wouldn't surprise me if she doesn't have some dirty dealings in all of this. Exposing that at just the right time would sink a Cruz candidacy in say, October for example.

There's all kinds of possibilities.

They did this first "expose" in order to let "Panama Papers" into the lexicon, so when they release the real bombshells in this the public is already primed for it.

But that assumes people would give a damn. "Hillary cheated on her taxes? What difference, at this point, does it make?" I mean, she's gotten away with stuff that would have put any normal American behind bars already. Cruz's wife is a known GS pony - we already assume that she's basically a Soros to corruptocrat politico liaison for play-to-pay. Getting some numbers behind that won't scare anybody who didn't find the whole thing unpalatable before away. Certainly not after the nomination.

We already assume these people are all total traitorous crooks. Getting some figures won't affect that materially. And the sad truth is that voters on both sides of the pond have largely resigned themselves to that that is how things are and you gotta vote your handout and forget about it.

We assumed, but so far the ones exposed by the PP have seen outrage. Shit, this is still trending on FB and Twitter two weeks after the fact. That's highly unusual.

It's two totally separate things, assuming something then having actual proof and details. Verification.

I am not saying this WILL have influence, I am saying the press will time releases of info TRYING to have influence.

Is it? This is a court of public opinion, not one of law. I am very much in the public already does know and doesn't really give a damn, so long as their handouts come regularly corner. So far, Iceland has seen some trouble. Cameron is getting a British tabloid makeover, but seeing as he hasn't actually committed anything illegal, that's probably to his net benefit - more talk about his personal business is less talk about the Brexit.

That they will. But I think the time when revelations about scandals among politicians and functionaries led to anything except hot air is gone. These days, the welfare cattle needs to feel the whip - bouncing welfare checks, through the roof criminality, in-your-face rape invaders - to actually shake its apathy enough to pull the fricken' lever.

Trending twitter won't shake any Wall Street investments vehicles you know.

They'll find out Trump kept his loose change he found in his couch in an off shore account, thus signaling the death of the universe.

Which will, no doubt, lead to a twitter storm among the eGOPers, the Bernie Bros, and NYT. And probably another percentage point or two to The Donald.

THe more the usual suspects complain about him the more the unaffiliated take another look at him. When you piss off the right people pissed off people pay attention.
