With the Republican establishment having its long knives out to try to sabotage the candidacy of front runner Donald Trump, here is a weird scenario that may be worth thinking about: 

FBI director James Comey told Congress Tuesday that he was personally following the investigation involving Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton’s email/security scandal 'very closely.' 

This set off a flurry of speculation from both Republican and some Democrat leaning media pundits to the effect that possible legal action against Clinton may be just weeks away. Further speculation is this is the only thing that can stop Clinton’s march toward the White House. 

Should that occur the Republicans could win by default. BUT Consider this:  If Clinton goes down, would not that be a wonderful opportunity for X-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to join the race for president on the Democrat side?

Like Donald Trump, he could be self-funded and give Democrats a new candidate behind which they could immediately unite.[Click 'Read More'below for rest of the column]

He shares Clinton and Bernie Sanders' view of how government should run your lives. He's a big 'nanny government' man, wants to limit size of soft drinks and confiscate your guns.

This may not be as off-the-wall as you think – – this has been very weird political season as Trump races toward the GOP nomination, threatening the security of entrenched congressional politicians who fear his election would be their undoing. (And we can only hope it will be).

This is resulting in high level political conspiracies in the GOP power-ranks to come up with ways to derail Trump’s candidacy. 

So think about it: Could this political theory possibly be able to play out with Bloomberg? After all he holds all the same policy positions as Clinton and Bernie Saunders and he has the money to finance such a race.  Should that happen the only saving grace would be that Trump’s momentum will be so strong Bloomberg could not catch up. 

If it comes about, remember you heard it here at Virginia News Source first.
