In an unprecedented move, the FBI reopened the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server less that two weeks before the presidential election. The fallout will likely be devastating for the Clinton campaign.
“How can the next president face a possible collapsing economy, possible war with Russia and a current war with ISIS? Oh, and also be under FBI investigation and indictment?” Glenn asked Monday on his radio program.
Glenn and his co-hosts agreed that a Trump win is almost guaranteed.
“He’s got to win now,” Glenn said.
Read below or watch the clip for answers to these questions:
• Is the race effectively over?
• Have the Clinton’s finally overplayed their hand?
• Is a vote for Clinton a vote for Kaine?
Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:
GLENN: Welcome to the program. So this, I believe, is not only unprecedented, but it is the greatest gift given to any candidate of all time in the history of America.
STU: I’ve never seen anything like it.
STU: You have to assume — again, I have no polling to back this up yet. It’s too early to get any of that —
GLENN: The race is over.
STU: It has to be over, right?
GLENN: The race is over.
STU: If you’re in an election, ten or 11 or 12 days before the election occurs —
PAT: Trump’s got to win this now.
STU: Right. Your opponent gets — becomes under FBI investigation?
GLENN: No, second time.
STU: For the second time. Well, really, there’s three separate investigations swirling around here, with the Weiner thing going on —
GLENN: The second time.
STU: — with the Clinton Foundation, which is another one that’s kind of going on. And now this one.
GLENN: I’m telling you — I’m telling you, even if this one goes away, if she were — if she were elected somehow — magic exists and she’s elected after this, I’m telling you, a vote for Clinton is a vote for Kaine. I hope you liked Kaine in the debates, because if she’s elected, he’s going to be your president. There’s just —
STU: Too much.
GLENN: It’s too much. The press has had it. They’ve had it. I really believe the Clintons have overplayed their hand and outstayed their welcome with the press.
STU: I mean, I think we kind of sit back because we’ve been going through this and we’ve been in the middle for a long time. And, Trump obviously, has his issues as a candidate. So people would say, “Well, he doesn’t have a — he might not win.”
GLENN: Come on.
STU: I mean, but how on earth could any candidate —
GLENN: Anyone — anyone could have won this now. Anyone would be 20 points ahead after this.
GLENN: Let’s say he was eight points. That was fair to say. Eight points behind last week, he should win this by five points.
STU: I mean, you’d just think, it has to be. Right?
STU: Sure, they’re going to do their typical stuff to try to muddy the waters. And I’ve heard some of the Clinton people out there trying to do that.
PAT: Pretty hard.
STU: But the bottom line, this fits perfectly into what — a perfect campaign issue. You have a completely non-descript, open-ended problem that Trump can put any face on it he wants.
PAT: And he will.
STU: And he will. And they would too, obviously.
GLENN: How can the next president face a possible collapsing economy, possible war with Russia, and a current war with ISIS? Oh, and also, be under FBI investigation and indictment? Can’t. Can’t.
STU: He’s got to win this now.
GLENN: He’s got to win this now.
