The least we need to know about email scandal
Mainstream media attempted to dismiss the corruption
The month before the November 2016 presidential election, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and her operatives began to change their tune and realized the email scandal had reached serious status. Their shills, charlatans and serial liars, including many in mainstream media, couldn’t minimize the growing outrage of millions of Americans.
The usual liberal fakes like the New York Times and MSNBC stepped in to help. CNN reported that Clinton’s emails were basically harmless, “mostly innocuous — with Clinton asking for scheduling updates, fitting in trips to her hair stylist, checking on a strange trade dispute over gefilte fish and receiving notes about the balance of a career and a family from a top policy aide.”
News first erupted the previous March that Clinton used personal email addresses connected to a privately-owned server, rather than a government email, while she served as secretary of state for President Barack Obama during his first-term.
Her underlings tried hard to diffuse the questions through a blitz of television appearances, emphasizing that FBI director James Comey said in July that his department “did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws.” He did acknowledge that her use of a private email server was “extremely careless” and advised the Justice Department that “no charges are appropriate in this case.”
To the Clinton camp, Comey didn’t make their intentions easier by characterizing her as careless, reckless, and negligent. Liberals began freaking out, twisting themselves into grotesque shapes to excuse their Hillary.
When she sat down for an interview with Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace, he played a video clip of her saying, “I am confident that I never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time.”
Wallace countered with, “FBI Director James Comey said none of those things you told the American public were true.”
Clinton carefully chose her words and replied, “”Director Comey said my answers were truthful, and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people, that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the emails.”
When Judicial Watch presented 281 pages of previously uncovered Clinton there were some shockers for the sheepish disbelievers, including hard and detailed collusion between her State Department and the Clinton Foundation.
“These new classified and other emails appear to be among those that Clinton had attempted to delete or had otherwise failed to disclose,” Judicial Watch observed.
“It is shameful that Hillary Clinton attempted to delete or hide classified information and that Obama appointees James Comey and Loretta Lynch refused to prosecute her,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is clear that the Clintons were using the State Department to run an extensive influence peddling scheme. Americans should be concerned that while untold resources are devoted to the abusive Mueller special counsel investigation of President Trump, this Justice Department seems uninterested in prosecuting the Clintons.”
When Comey appeared before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in July 2016, then member Trey Gowdy asked the FBI director, “Secretary Clinton said there was nothing marked classified on her emails either sent or received, was that true?”
Comey admitted it was not true. When Gowdy asked, “Gowdy: “Secretary Clinton said, ‘I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email, there is no classified material.’ Was that true?”
“No there was classified material emailed,” Comey answered. The truth was the FBI had discovered by that time over 100 emails included classified information and at least eight email chains labeled ‘top secret,’ the highest level of classification.
Even the Washington Post gave Clinton a four “Pinocchio rating,” observing that “Clinton is cherry-picking statements by Comey to preserve her narrative about the unusual setup of a private email server. This allows her to skate past the more disturbing findings of the FBI investigation.”
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange spoke up against Obama’s Department of Justice’s decision not to prosecute Clinton as an “incredible double standard,” and that if they see him as a threat to national security, then certainly Clinton was too.
