Krauthammer: Hillary Will Be Indicted, Or There Will Be a Criminal Referral, ‘Can’t See’ Her Getting Away ‘With Nothing’
Columnist Charles Krauthammer predicted that Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be “either indicted, or there’s a criminal referral somehow squashed by the higher ups” for her email practices on Thursday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel. Krauthammer said, [relevant remarks begin around 4:20] “The ultimate irony is that the reason she embarked on all of this was to hide her communications from the world, from the Freedom of Information Act, from the Congress. That was the point. There’s no other point in doing this. It’s meant to evade subpoenas, inquiries, congressional Committees. And now it’s all over the — I mean, everything is out there. we know that 22 of these were extremely highly secret.” He added, “I think she gets either indicted, or there’s a criminal referral somehow squashed by the higher ups. I can’t see her getting away from this with nothing.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Jindal: Trump Will ‘Never Be Able to Convince’ Me He’s Conservative
Thursday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” former Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump won’t convince him that he’s a “conservative,” therefore he should start naming “trusted, principled conservatives” he would nominate for his cabinet. “You used many great analogies, but hopefully this is the week Donald Trump jumps the shark,” Jindal said. “I’m old enough to remember that I don’t know if viewers remember Fonzy jumping the shark. Hopefully this is the week, whether it was the ridiculous comments about abortion, whether it was his campaign manager getting arrested. Who knows? He seems to bounce back from all of these things. I’m not a fan of Donald Trump. There’s still time to beat him.” “But obviously I’m going to support my party’s nominee,” he continued. “I don’t think we can afford Hillary Clinton in office. One thing that Donald Trump can do. He’ll never be able to convince somebody like me in the time he’s got left he’s a conservative. He won’t convince somebody like me, who is a serious policy guy. What he can start doing is saying who are the types of people he’d put around him, who would he appoint as secretary of defense, secretary of state.

Buchanan: Wisconsin Could Halt Trump Momentum Or Give Him the Nomination
Thursday on NewsmaxTV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” former Nixon and Reagan aide and conservative commentator Pat Buchanan said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump faces a “rough” test in Wisconsin’s GOP primary Tuesday, because losing could “halt” Trump’s momentum while a win could give him the nomination. Given Gov. Scott Walker’s endorsement of Cruz, local conservative radio hosts being against him and the large amount of anti-Trump super PAC ads running, Buchanan explained, “This is a very rough test for Trump. I think if he loses it he still can easily win the nomination but he’s really going to have to start running the table completely. If he loses this, and this would really I think blunt and halt the momentum he has built up.” When asked what the result would be if Trump won Wisconsin, Buchanan said, “I think Trump is the nominee.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
