This was supposed to be the defining week that Hillary Clinton united the Democratic Party around her candidacy and sealed up the nomination two weeks before the Democratic National Convention. But now, Democrats are more fractured than ever, and Clinton’s campaign is in turmoil with months to go before the general election.
Clinton’s nightmare week began with two Congressional committee chairmen requesting the FBI investigate the former Secretary of State for perjury, given that the answers she gave under oath during the Congressional Benghazi hearings contradict the FBI’s official findings. While she avoided indictment the previous week, Clinton is still reeling from the blow dealt to her campaign after Comey called her and her staff’s handling of classified information “extremely careless.”
“The evidence collected by the FBI during its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email system appears to directly contradict several aspects of her sworn testimony,” wrote House Government Reform and Oversight Committee chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) on Monday. “In light of those contradictions, the Department should investigate and determine whether to prosecute Secretary Clinton for violating statutes that prohibit perjury and false statements to Congress, or any other relevant statutes.”
It should be noted that a successful prosecution is unlikely in any potential perjury investigation, as the legal bar to prove perjury is uncommonly high and requires proof that the witness “knowingly and willfully” made false testimony or concealed a falsehood. However, another high-profile case targeting Clinton would undoubtedly hurt her standing in the polls even further.
On Tuesday, Clinton hoped to recover with Bernie Sanders’ highly-publicized endorsement of Clinton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where Sanders won by a landslide in February, and where Clinton hasn’t appeared since losing the first-in-the-nation primary to the Vermont senator. The endorsement was meant to symbolize the end of a contentious primary, with both factions of the party coalescing around the common goal of defeating Donald Trump.
But as the week went on, it has become clear the endorsement did not have the intended effect.
Shortly after the endorsement, the New York Times published a devastating new poll that surveyed young voters between ages 18 and 30, finding that only about one out of four white millennials and half of Latino millennials had a positive opinion of the presumptive Democratic nominee.
