And I have received handling of classified and sensitive information training every year for the last 35. What's your point?

1: After choosing a VP candidate that wins back the conservative base, Trump wins the states Romney won, in addition to Florida (a state he is extremely popular in) then takes swing states that Obama policies have hurt economically. These states have low % of Hispanic voters, high % of white voters (Ohio, Virginia, maybe Pennsylvania). Reagan Democrats rejoin the GOP, as well as the majority of independents that are concerned about jobs.

2: Clinton gets indicted after the convention but before the election. She maintains her innocence, stays in the race, but loses the independent vote and Trump wins.

3: Clinton gets indicted after the convention but before the election, drops out, and leaves Trump to run against the libertarian and green party candidates.

4. Hillary gets indicted BEFORE the convention. Super delegates switch to Bernie giving him the nomination. Bernie is crushed by anti socialism attack ads. America is not ready for socialism.

Option 1 is a pipe dream. "Three-quarters of women view him unfavorably. So do nearly two-thirds of independents, 80 percent of young adults, 85 percent of Hispanics and nearly half of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents." I know Republicans who would rather have had their teeth dragged over concrete than vote for Obama who will be voting for Hilary this election. He can't even get his own party to vote for him so he's fucked when it comes to anybody else. Forget the Reagan Democrats, Trump can't even entice the Bush Republicans.

Options 2, 3 and 4 involve an indictment that's bloody unlikely. The Democrats would have thrown her to the wolves long ago if that was in the offing.

Similarly, selection of the Veep won't matter worth much. Nobody who has any hope of a politic future and any self-respect will be joining Trump in his spiral of self-destruction.

So onto the bad news:

Option 6: A splinter branch of the Republican establishment runs an independant who has the bad manners to split the vote against Hilary more effectively than against Trump.

Option 7: A major terrorist strike or similar catastrophy allowing Trump to ride the surge of fear, anger and anti-incumbency sentiment into power.

Well, it looks like that's not going to happen. It seems the FBI didn't find any criminal wrongdoing.

A Democrat operative, with no known source, reports the FBI hasn't found any criminal wrongdoing.

The FBI doesn't work that way.
