Will Hillary continue her campaign even under Indictment ?? [View all]

Starting to see lots of polling articles "Should Hillary Drop Out if Indicted" from Pro-Clinton publications as a trial ballon for what to do when the FBI recommends charges to the DOJ.

As bizarre as this may seem, the Pro-Hillary forces feels she is justified to do so. Personally I would postpone any overseas travel as I don't want to be the laughing stalk of the Free World - but that's just me.

I would like to know what justification you would have for voting for any candidate under indictment for the President of the United States

So I'll ask the question

48 votes, 0 passes | Time left: Time expired
YES I will vote for Hillary even if the FBI recommends charges to the DOJ
2 (4%)
IF Indicted Hillary should suppend her campaign immediately
46 (96%)
Take TIME to asses the charges and the will of the American People
