They sure do seem to happen a lot for Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
For example, what a stunning coincidence that former President Bill Clinton “happened” to run into Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac, just days before her FBI recommend no charges against Clinton’s wife.
Or that the deputy director of the FBI, who helped lead the investigation into Hillary’s private email scandal, is married to the Virginia state senate candidate that Hillary’s BFF — Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe — gave nearly $500K to through his PAC. Oh yeah the same PAC for which Hillary Clinton herself — coincidentally, of course — raised more than $1 million, as the FBI investigation into her was underway.
Try this one on for size…
Via American Mirror:A bombshell rocked the presidential campaign today, and reporters flying with Hillary Clinton were in the dark because the plane’s wifi was reportedly out.
Of note as we wait for Clinton: plane had no wi-fi today. One adviser after we landed: “We’re learning about this just like you all are.” pic.twitter.com/CjsH71LJNo

One advisor, whom Mattingly did not name, used the patented Obama/Clinton line, “We’re learning about this just like you all are.”
They were referring to the revelation that the FBI was reopening its probe into Hillary’s private email server.
Mattingly phoned into CNN en route to Clinton’s campaign event in Cedar Rapids.

The campaign was “caught off guard” by the news “to say the least,” Mattingly reported.
“When we landed we were all finding out about this at the same time, and that apparently includes Hillary Clinton and her advisors.”
But the Wall Street Journal’s Byron Tau reports Clinton’s campaign plane has wifi:

So it just happens to go out today?
To be fair, Hillary can’t speak without prepared (and, ideally, focus group tested) comments that tell her what to say. Despite attempts at appearances of media “access” and “closeness” to Clinton (wasn’t that photo of her handing out birthday cake to the media sweet?), there is a very clear barrier that ensures the media only get access to that which Team Clinton chooses to give them.
But just let this sink in for a moment: the woman who could possibly be elected President of the United States in just 11 days appears to have simply cut off internet access to our media in order to protect herself. If you can’t control the content, just black out access altogether.
