Morris: Biden's Decision Means Hillary Won't Be Indicted

Vice President Joe Biden's announcement Wednesday that he would not challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination proves that the former secretary of state will not be indicted in the email scandal, political analyst Dick Morris told Newsmax TV.

"Nobody's going to indict Hillary if you're going to have [Bernie] Sanders as the Democratic nominee," Morris told "The Hard Line" host Ed Berliner. "So, Biden was in there to make sure that if Hillary got indicted, there was an alternative — and the fact is that he did not run.

"That says that Hillary will not be indicted, that the Justice Department will not give a green light to it, and that he checked it out and he found that there was no way that she would be knocked out, would be indicted.

"That's why he didn't run — and his failure to run indicates that even if the FBI comes up with material, Obama will not allow the Justice Department to indict the prospective Democratic candidate."

Morris is the co-author of The New York Times best-seller, "Power Grab: Obama’s Dangerous Plan for a One-Party Nation."



He told Berliner that the timing of Biden's decision was not a factor "because there was never a chance that he would catch Hillary Clinton. There's never a chance that he would beat her in a normal situation."

Only a strong endorsement from President Barack Obama would have "dramatically increased his prospects for winning the black vote, which is a quarter of the Democratic primary vote — and an indictment that would slow down, hobble, or knock out Hillary Clinton," Morris said.

"We can't see the intentions of Obama or of the Justice Department, but you can be damn sure that if they felt that they were going to indict Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden would be in this race today," he concluded. "This effectively seals Hillary's nomination and it also dismisses the chance that she'll be indicted."

Turning his attention to Clinton's testimony Thursday before the special House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks, Morris said that he hoped the panel focused more on the assaults that killed four Americans rather than the email scandal.

"Bernie Sanders was correct: People are tired of the email scandal, unless there's a smoking gun in the remaining emails or you can call attention to one of the existing ones," he told Berliner. "But Benghazi is a whole separate issue that reflects very poorly on the judgment she would bring to the White House as a prospective commander-in-chief."
