Geraldo Rivera Slaps His Colleagues For Hyping Email Probe

Even though it's not the first time, it's still a pleasant surprise when it happens.

Well, what do you know? Geraldo Rivera can occasionally be right about something, like when he went on Outnumbered and chided his colleagues for hyping the Hillary email story into a "scandalette."

Then he went farther.

Rivera said that he was “baffled” that his colleagues at Fox maintained that Clinton would be “behind bars” soon — and said that they were guilty of “wishful thinking.”

“There is not one scintilla of evidence — there is zero evidence — that a grand jury exists in the Hillary Clinton email ‘scandalette,’ I call it,” Rivera said.

“I submit that Republicans that waste their energy, hoping against hope that something bad will happen to Hillary because of these emails, are misguided,” he added.

Outnumbered co-host Andrea Tantaros argued that Clinton “should be in prison,” but that there would be no indictment because the Obama administration was covering for her.

That last part from Tantaros is just imagination more than anything else. For months, the FBI has been selectively leaking information to try and damage Hillary Clinton, even though there's nothing there.

But like dogs with a bone, the Fox News cohorts just gnaw and gnaw and gnaw. Pretty soon it's going to splinter and cut them. I look forward to that day.
