I wouldn't normally put a lot of stock in this, but Julian Assange, the head of Wikileaks, although holed up inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for years to avoid arrest on bogus sex crime charges, an arrest that would almost surely lead to extradition to the United States, took down the head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, quite recently, as you know, and now he says that his next release of emails is going to take down Hillary Clinton. And it doesn't pertain to Benghazi. It pertains to how she dealt with the challenge from Bernie Sanders. 

And, if it doesn't lead to her immediate arrest, then the whole system is just blatantly rigged.     

I think it's going to be the latter. Under other circumstances, it might have led to her arrest. But now, Hillary Clinton is the only thing standing in the way of Donald Trump becoming President. If they didn't arrest her over Benghazi, why think they would arrest her over dirty tricks against Sanders? 

If she were arrested, what would happen in the election contest? Presumably, she could continue running for President because she would get out on bail, and the trial would be scheduled months into the future, but what would it do to her chances of winning? It would destroy them. In fact, it would be far better if she dropped out and was replaced with an untainted candidate. But, how that would work logistically I have no idea. It would be unprecedented, wouldn't it? Would it automatically go to Bernie Sanders, since he came in second in the primaries? I honestly don't know. I have no idea. Again: it would be unprecedented. 

But, if it fell to Sanders, I don't think he would have any chance against Trump. 

But, note that Julian Assange vehemently denies that the Russians have anything to do with this. Here's the link:
