Indict Hillary Clinton In Trump’s First Hundred Days (Guest Post)

By 47 Comments 14,021 views

While Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorable” was marching to the polls pitchforks and torches in hand to deny her access to the presidency and a new revenue source for the Clinton Foundation, Scooter Libby got his law license back and was reinstated to the bar by the D.C. Court of Appeals.

Libby was Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff when he was charged with obstruction of an investigation into the “outing” of Valerie Plame as a CIA operative. Plame was in fact a desk jockey at CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia, not a secret agent in harm’s way. As Investor’s Business Daily noted:

Remember the alleged outing of the already known CIA officer and desk jockey Valerie Plame? We were told then that the Vanity Fair cover girl’s 15 minutes of fame jeopardized our national security even if everybody already knew who she was.

“Scooter” Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, went to jail because his memory of events and who said what to whom regarding Plame differed from the recollections of others, particularly news reporters.

Libby in fact did not out Plame who was not a covert operative. Hillary Clinton, whose faulty memory caused her to say to the FBI she couldn’t recall some 39 times, did in fact endanger the lives of foreign operatives in her “carelessness”, as FBI Director James Comey put it, regarding classified emails.

Scooter Libby’s “crimes” included making “false” statements to the FBI in the case of the alleged “outing” of well-known CIA desk jockey Valerie Plame. If anyone has made false statements to the FBI, it is one Hillary Rodham Clinton. Saying you don’t recall more than three dozen times doesn’t past the Pinocchio test.

Plame was as noted a well-known desk jockey at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Hillary’s lies and reckless carelessness included the transmission of emails containing the names of actual CIA operatives in the field involved in clandestine operations. As the New York Post reported:

Hillary Clinton’s e-mails included the names of CIA officers serving overseas and foreigners who are on the spy agency’s payroll — potentially endangering their lives, it was reported Monday.

“It’s a death sentence,” a senior intelligence-community official told the Observer. “If we’re lucky, only [foreign] agents, not our officers, will get killed because of this.”

The paper said the intelligence community is in panic mode trying to determine which agents may have been compromised.

CIA officials assume foreign agencies intercepted unencrypted e-mails stored on Clinton’s.  home server while she was secretary of state.

So why was Libby convicted and Hillary Clinton not even indicted.? In an interesting historical footnote, Comey, who falsely claimed no serious prosecutor would take the case of Hillary Clinton, was among those who found sufficient evidence to prosecute and convict Libby. Comey, it appears, has even more explaining to do. As the Daily Caller reports:

Washington D.C.-based former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova believes the Libby decision is a “terrible blow” to FBI Director James Comey, who announced Sunday that the agency had no new conclusions on Hillary Clinton and her private server from the 650,000 new emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

“Scooter Libby was restored to the practice of law by the DC court of appeals because they believed that Scooter Libby presented evidence that his original trial had been corrupted by false testimony. And that false testimony was coerced by Jim Comey’s friend Patrick Fitzgerald and Comey was part of the team to destroy the vice president of the United States and it didn’t happen,” DiGenova said.

He added,” It’s such a smack in the face to Jim Comey.  Comey and Fitzgerald tried to frame Scooter Libby, and they did….”

The evidence against Hillary is damning, and the line of prosecutors willing to take the case would encircle the FBI building in Washington, D.C Judge Michael Mikasey, former Attorney General under President George W. Bush, listed the charges that Hillary Clinton could face on Fax Radio’s “Kilmeade and Friends:”

We are looking at a range of things, everything from the misdemeanor that was charged against General Petraeus, which is putting classified information in an unprotected, classified setting, that’s a misdemeanor. Then there is destroying government records. Then there is taking information related to the national defense and treating it with gross negligence such as it becomes disclosed. And finally, there is obstruction of justice.”

There is the destruction of evidence under Congressional subpoena. As even Comey admitted, Hillary lied about sending and receiving classified material; about having only one device, and about turning over all her emails. If intent is needed, what is accidental about smashing devices with hammers or using Bleach Bit to render emails unrecoverable?  If you need a motive for having a private server, which speaks to intent, the obvious purpose is to cover up the “pay to play” trail that leads from the State Department to the Clinton Foundation.

As Investor’s Business Daily editorialized, donations to the Clinton Foundation even played a factor in the refusal of Hillary Clinton’s State Department to designate Nigeria’s Boko Haram as a terrorist organization for two years:

Hillary’s emails may be only the tip of an iceberg that could include Clinton Foundation donations to shield Boko Haram from being designated a terrorist group and her brother’s involvement in a Haitian gold mine….

Last month, the Washington Post reported on another deal involving Rodham that could prove politically embarrassing and damaging for his sister. It seems that he sits on the board of a company that got a coveted gold-mining contract from the government of Haiti after the Clinton Foundation sponsored relief work in Haiti.

In interviews with the Post, both Rodham and the chief executive of Delaware-based VCS Mining said they were introduced at a meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative, which seems more and more to be an unseemly mix of charitable work with the political and business interests of Clinton Foundation donors.

And then there’s Hillary’s strange dealings regarding the Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram, which just recently pledged its allegiance to the ever-expanding Islamic State — dubbed the “JV team” by President Obama, who has yet to make good on his pledge to degrade and destroy them.

Last May, we wondered why for two years on Hillary Clinton’s watch the State Department refused to designate a Nigerian Islamist group as a terrorist organization. This group has murdered thousands as it wages a real war on women. As Josh Rogin at the Daily Beast reports, the Clinton State Department “refused to place Boko Haram on the list of foreign terrorist organizations in 2011” after the group bombed the United Nations headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria.

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry last week asking for all of Hillary’s records relating to Boko Haram and her reluctance to designate it a foreign terrorist organization.

Vitter also requested all of Hillary’s communications with Gilbert Chagoury, a Nigerian construction tycoon who has donated millions to the Clinton Foundation. Vitter noted that Chagoury had a financial interest in the potential impact of designating Boko Haram a terrorist group

How many of the more than 30,000 “personal” emails that Hillary deleted from her private account relate to these matters? Is that why she needed a private email server? We need to see that server. It might provide, er, a veritable gold mine of information.

This is but one example. The public corruption of Hilary and Bill Clinton was also on display in Colombia, Haiti, and other places. Hillary Clinton has endangered the lives of our foreign operatives, placed our national security at risk, lied to Congress, the FBI, and the American people, and used her public office to enrich herself and her family without benefit if a business or private sector job.

Various FBI offices are said to still be investigating the Clinton Foundation and we can only hope so. Comey doesn’t think there’s any fire under all that smoke but perhaps a Trump attorney general might think differently. We have hope in Trump’s own remarks in a presidential debate as reported by the New York Times:

About 20 minutes into the debate, Donald Trump delivered a menacing threat to Hillary Clinton. “If I win,” he warned, “I’m going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there’s never been so many lies, so much deception.” …

“It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” Mrs. Clinton observed.

“Because,” Mr. Trump replied “you’d be in jail.”

This is not a Third World country where leaders incarcerate their predecessors and opponents on a whim.But we are a nation of laws and Hillary Clinton has broken many of them. Her only accomplishment in public office has been to so far avoid prosecution. President Trump should keep his promise to incarcerate this fugitive from justice.. The voters have denied Hillary Clinton the presidency. A Trump Justice Department should deny Hillary Clinton her freedom. .

    There will be no prosecution of the Clintons for anything. Do you really believe this election changed the fact that laws that apply to the rest of us DO NOT apply to the elites? The world is the same as it has been. The system is STILL rigged.

  2. 4


    A Pardon? No. She didn’t commit these crimes against Trump, its no revenge, it isn’t even to stop a comeback, she is way too sick and old for that. Perhaps I would feel different if she denounced a single protest. Nope I wouldn’t.
    I do not want to see her jailed without a fair trial and conviction. If convicted and depending on the depth then upon the depth of her crime a “consideration” of pardon. Where would you get an impartial jury ?

  3. 5

    Bill… Deplorable Me

    @Brother Bob: I would not object to a pardon for everything EXCEPT the mishandling of sensitive classified information. If it were to be found anyone working with us to keep us safe was endangered or harmed, she should pay the penalty. That should be something that is not tolerated in any way and giving her a pardon for any of that would be sending the wrong message.

  4. 6


    If Hillary is not prosecuted, there is no law. There are no consequences for anyone who violates our laws if she I not prosecuted. If she is innocent as her supporters proclaim, then, she will be vindicate and cleared. , she will always be stained.

    Indict Hillary Clinton In Trump’s First Hundred Days

    You’re still fixated on the b.s. Trump dangled in front of your eyes like a hypnotist’s pocket watch to shut down your brain and gain your anti-Clinton votes. You still haven’t paid a moment’s worth of attention to what he said—or just as often never said—about things that are real and truly matter. For example, no one gave a doodly damn about the long-term irrationality of his tax proposals.

    Once again, we’ve got trickle down nonsense—which makes perfect sense to the wealthy class that economic gains will trickle down from—and extrapolation of Laffer Curve reasoning beyond the point where it ceases to be reasonable and any resultant growth of revenue drops out from under the cost of new tax cuts. We’ve also got that most conservative of all economic principles—Hey, it must be conservative, because Trump fully embraces it, and “conservatives” have fully embraced him—that running up the national debt to infinity and beyond doesn’t matter.

    Forbes has summarized the thinking behind the tax plan that is rapidly emerging:

    Trump’s Tax Plan

    So, how conservative and common sense does all of that sound? This is not going to bring down deficits or slow down debt growth. It’s going to give us a short boom, while making debt far worse. And, unlike the debt added during the Obama years, it won’t be the result of the need for economic stimulation and emergency measures following the catastrophic 2007-2008 recession. We’re going to send debt higher like a skyrocket to stimulate an economy that has already been slowly but steadily recovering, to initiate another irrational boom era fueled with deficit spending. That was the set up leading into the 2007-2008 bust, you may recall.

    The rich will grow richer, and everyone else will have a richer diet of bigger crumbs falling from their table—until the feast abruptly ends once again. Then, as with Obama, some future president will be elected for clean-up duty.

    But don’t worry. Because Clinton, d-mn it! We’ll put her away! Just keep your eyes on the shiny pocket watch.

    @Greg: No one, even a criminal liberal worshiped by liberals, is above the law. This should be re-established, since the Obama administration has cast doubt on this cornerstone of American government.

    There will be no prosecution, because there was insufficient evidence to support bringing charges. Thousands of hours and millions of taxpayer dollars were spent in the effort to find such evidence, and none was found.

    What do you not understand about the fact that the whole business about Clinton being a criminal was promoted to allow republican politicians to win elections? It was all about the manipulation of public opinion. Without that, Trump would never in a million years have won a presidential election, because more voters would have paid closer attention to Trump. (More already did than didn’t, but the fact that substantially more rejected Trump’s pitch than bought it didn’t keep him from making the deal and taking the White House.)

    I don’t see many threads around here where attention is paid to what Trump & Co. are getting ready to do in connection with anything that actually matters to people’s lives—his tax plan, for instance. It’s like everyone’s brain has been put in neutral and they’re just rolling on along with the pre-election propaganda.

    There will be no prosecution, because there was insufficient evidence to support bringing charges. Thousands of hours and millions of taxpayer dollars were spent in the effort to find such evidence, and none was found.

    We don’t know that. Every aspect of this investigation has the stain of politicization upon it. Obama’s involvement, the tarmac meeting between Slick and Loretta, ignoring the destruction of evidence, video proof of perjury all warrants a non-partisan look… which it has not had.

    What have you got to worry about, Greg? She’s innocent, right? The current state of affairs will never be accepted as an honest outcome. Every defender of Hillary should be clamoring for a REAL investigation to prove, beyond any doubt that she is innocent.

    Unless you KNOW she is guilty and you are all out of tears after Trump won the election.

  9. 12


    What have you got to worry about, Greg?

    I’ve noticed that the executive committee being put together to “drain the swamp” consists of major political donors, heavy-hitter corporate lobbyists, and family members who will be running Trump’s 500-some business entities. His interface with the GOP consists of career politicians. The tax cut plan will again heavily favor the wealthiest and shows no concern whatsoever about increasing deficits, which had finally been coming down. The underlying economic theory is that the national debt doesn’t matter. (I saw Arthur Laffer being interviewed on CNN earlier today, boosting the Trump economic plan. He actually came right out and said that: The national debt doesn’t matter. The economy is going to be great!) Military expenditures look like they’re going into a pre-war preparation mode.

    So, why should anyone be the least bit concerned? There’s still Hillary Clinton to worry about.

  10. 13


    @Greg: If what you say is true, then Hillary has nothing to be concerned about, but we have seen copies of the classified emails and she has admitted to having a unapproved server in her home. You can not explain that away. It is also a felony that will prevent her from holding office again.

  11. 14

    Bill… Deplorable Me

    @Greg: You loved it when Obama named Immelt, GE CEO (which owned NBC/MSNBC at the time) as jobs czar, who then set up to build aircraft in China and kept all GE’s profits off shore and tax-free. Obama has tax-evader Sharpton as a frequent guest and adviser in the White House. Both Obama and Hillary relied on the advice of Buffet, another tax dodger.

    Trump will be in the White House in order to keep the most corrupt, greedy and proven incompetent person ever to run for the office out. Trust me, it could be much worse.

    There’s justice and the rule of law to worry about. Hillary needs to be held accountable.

  12. 16


    It is indubitably the case that Clinton committed crimes. There are the ones we know about, those we suspect, and there are likely ones we don’t yet know about or even suspect. Clinton’s situation literally cries out for a special prosecutor.

    To the writer above who would be willing to have Clinton pardoned for all misdeeds except for her intentional compromising of the nation’s security I would say that I do not believe she should be pardoned for any crimes of the “pay to play” variety which might have occurred during the time she was Secretary of State. To my mind, that is just as evil.

  13. 17


    People keep saying Clinton committed crimes. It’s bullshit until you prove it, and you have yet to prove a damn thing—other than the fact that you will happily elect a snake oil salesman to the office of president.

    There you go again……

    People keep saying Clinton committed crimes. It’s bullshit until you prove it, and you have yet to prove a damn thing

    No it is not bullshit until it is proven. There is something called evidence, of which there are voluminous quantities. She violated the espionage act by the simple fact that she operated a private unsecure server independent of government oversight.

    A bank robber who robs a bank and is never caught commits a crime. Even a third grader(maybe not today), but when I was growing up knew that.

    Full disclosure, I was born in the mid fifties……

    BTW, ol BJ is cheering for the witch to be locked up. It will give him unfettered access to as many women as he wants…….

    Hillary Clinton will not be indicted for her mishandling of classified information despite the evidence. Trump will not allow it. And I agree no matter how much I despise her.

  16. 22

    Bill- Deplorable Me

    @Nomadic100: Anything that relates to national security should be prosecuted.

    @Greg: A thorough and honest investigation needs to be carried out; that has not yet happened. Stonewalling, obstruction and lies have hampered any efforts. But, she committed perjury; this we KNOW. Aside from that, there is WHY she lies and WHAT she lied about.

    @DrJohn: I think it would be shameful to pardon her for something other people have been fined, jailed or ruined by. While I want the whole episode to be over, letting it slide would smack of the politically motivated indictments and charges brought by the left to damage Republican candidates.

    @Greg: Yeah, I don’t think so. You’re hypnotized yourself, so why would anyone let you flip it on them?

    And what, pray tell, did Clinton have offer…?

    “…because Trump, damn it…”

    If a fair investigation is made, one not muddled and blocked by political insiders (Lynch, Comey, etc) and Hillary is found to have broke the law, then yes – she gets prosecuted. If not, then she doesn’t.

    The issue is knowing that Democratic elites don’t get to skirt the law because of favors and money. It’s not about indicting Hillary at all…just about letting actual justice a chance to be served, guilty or innocent.

    “People” being the Director of the FBI, who mysteriously said she broke the law, but should not be indicted. That’s the issue. You probably cling to some version of Bush breaking laws, and with no evidence at all. Double standard much?

    And Obama is more the snake-oil salesman, you twit. He’s the reason that someone like Trump could even run.

    Deal with it.

    If a fair investigation is made, one not muddled and blocked by political insiders (Lynch, Comey, etc) and Hillary is found to have broke the law, then yes – she gets prosecuted. If not, then she doesn’t.

    A full investigation has already made, at a cost to taxpayers of $20 million for the FBI’s part alone. If your worse-than-useless Congressional bozos want to repeat the entire process, fine. They already did Benghazi 7 times, refusing to believe their own conclusions at the end of the first 6. On the 7th occasion they avoided this outcome by refraining from providing any summary of findings or conclusions at all. They just said they’d let people draw their own conclusions. I have done: They’re a pack of politically opportunistic morons.

    While some people have long since realized this, others apparently need additional proof. Have at it. Maybe it will keep those on the right from noticing for a while that Trump isn’t really what they thought they were voting for. He was saying what you wanted to hear him say. That’s what he had to do to get elected. Now, less than a week later, he’s already saying things that are a bit different.

  20. 26

    Bill… Deplorable Me

    @Greg: Greg. Really. More emails were found just two weeks ago. Devices were destroyed. Immunity handed out like candy. Hillary has changed her story more times than she changed her Depends. Every time new, undeniable revelations come out, she would modify her story, never really showing much respect for the intelligence of anyone hearing what the latest weak excuse of the day is.

    Running out the clock is not the same as cooperating with an investigation.

    Hillary had highly classified information illegally stored on unsecured devices and she lied under oath to the FBI and Congress about it. What is the penalty for that, Greg?

  21. 27



    Now he’s saying something different.

    or is it you are not hearing what the MSM said he said, doing their own interpretation of course. They had the wind knocked out of them on Tuesday and so now they have had nearly a week to recover from being bitchslapped, they will begin again not learning a thing as ratings tank sponsors drop ect, the election is over they will no longer be sustained by political ads. Press whining about Trump shutting off access,like they had such an open relationship with the current POTUS.
    Oh I know you havent heard there were several Clinton investigations running concurrent with each other some have not ended.
    CNN and several others will never clean the dung they rolled themselves into by colluding with the Clinton Machine, favoritism is one thing but editorial powers, debate questions ect…
    You can Join the dying drama queens predicting the end of it all, dont forget to wear your safety-pin. No matter what happens the snowflake or regular flakes wont be happy if she comes to trial.

    What you’re looking for is affirmation of your own opinions, which are based entirely on a prolonged propaganda campaign that was intended to manipulate voter opinion. The conclusions and the recommendations of the FBI were based on what they learned from the investigation itself.

    I don’t know how you can conclude that the FBI was engaging in a cover-up to protect Clinton when their actions were largely responsible for derailing her campaign in its final week and putting Donald Trump in the White House.

  23. 29

    Bill… Deplorable Me

    @Greg: Hillary lying before Congress, under oath, about AT LEAST 110 emails marked classified at the time they were received, stored and sent. This is verified by Comey’s own investigation and evidence. That is not propaganda… that is a fact and it is on video.

    No, what is propaganda is that Hillary never does anything wrong and the only problems she has is meanies that will not accept her greatness. Hillary is guilty of, at the very, very least, of perjury on two separate occasions; one before the FBI and one before Congress. That and that alone definitively disqualified Hillary from holding office, yet it took a billion dollar campaign (3/4 of which was spent by Hillary) to settle that one simple, plain, obvious fact.

    What you’re looking for is affirmation of your own opinions, which are based entirely on a prolonged propaganda campaign that was intended to manipulate voter opinion.

    Yes, you just descibed Obama and Dems, Hillary and the media. You just described yourself, your own misguided views, and the irony of your own projection is humorous, to say the least.

    But I’m not sure why we’re discussing this. I think you might have a mental illness, as you simply parrot the Dem story du jour — you cheerlead for what ever was headlined on internet news aggregators.

    There’s no active coverup. Like you and your subconscious logical misfires, I believe those involved probably don’t understand just how badly they are breaking the law, or covering mistakes that are past the threshold of “you know I didn’t mean anything bad”.

    I don’t think Hillary thinks she lied. That’s the problem, and it’s why she’s lost two elections now.

    @DrJohn: I think what Hillary did caused deep harm to the security of our nation. I am totally satisfied to see Hillary gone from the public scene once and for all, but I don’t think that should be allowed to slide out of convenience.

    Or, how about the House reverse the impeachment of Nixon? After all, if a person is in a high enough position, they are immune from the law.

    @Nathan Blue, #32:

    You got rolled by Obama, and now can’t stand watching Trump use similar tactics to win the White House.

    You seem to be confused about who he was he using those tactics on. I’m sure it will eventually register. We’ve already heard him say the Clintons are good people. His deportation plans have been cut back from 12 million illegally present to 3 million criminals, which itself overstates the number in the category. Oh yeah, and there are parts of Obamacare he likes. We’re going to keep those. He has also decided that maybe Obama isn’t such a bad guy after all. This is only day 6 after the election.

    For democrats, there’s nowhere to go with Trump but toward a more positive view. Our low point was on election day. There’s no disillusionment waiting around the corner, because we suspected the worst about Trump to begin with. I welcome the fact that he’s moderating his rhetoric. I can live with a pragmatist. He apparently has no desire to further alienate democrats. I find it interesting that he seems to be keeping the opposing forces within the GOP close at hand inside his emerging administration, where they can bump heads with each other rather than focusing on him. This could be a very clever move. He might be happy to let the right blow off steam with a Clinton investigation, keeping out of it himself. He could always pardon her, which could be a very good political play if he decides the GOP needs to be put in its place. This guy isn’t going to follow anybody’s standard rules. That includes yours.

    @DrJohn: @DrJohn: Misrepresentation of motive by the left is inevitable regardless of what he does. For instance, stemming the flow of illegal immigrants and criminal illegal immigrants equals hating Mexicans.

    I don’t want to see Hillary go to jail; that would never happen anyway. But I think the facts of the matter should be clearly determined and publicized as, regarding perceptions, it has been a partisan witch hunt up till now. If there is validation for the hunt (and I firmly believe there is) we should know; this removes false perceptions of the investigative committees.

  29. 38


    No pardon. Go after her and the Clinton Crime foundation like hounds after the fox. The left has gone after their opponents with totally bogus, politically motivated lawfare suits (Stevens, Delay, etc) so they can shove their false sanctimony over “politically driven charges” up their collective 4th point of contact.

    Twist the Clinton’s hard…and see evidence of what illegalities they drop on their leftist comrades. DRAIN THE SWAMP!

    Then justice will be served without a political side dish, like Obama had done.

    If, OTOH, she is found guilty of somethings, her punishment should fit her crimes.

    Trump has the opportunity to establish a “rule of law” administration as he said I believe in the second debate. It would be a mistake to come out of the box on January 20th with a request for a special prosecutor.

    Three mayors of the largest three cities have come out in open defiance of current immigrantion law by vowing to remain sanctuary cities. If he deals with that in a way that shows the rule of law is important, he will earn support to enforce rule of law in many instance including mrs clinton.

  32. 41


    Trump should focus on defining a conduct code for the incoming administration and making certain people are chosen who will likely meet it, rather than worrying about past investigations. The current republican-majority Congress has already wasted 2 years on such politically motivated exercises.

    From Trump advisers steamroll Christie’s transition, today, November 15:

    The transition team has yet to publicly release a code of ethics for itself or for nominees. And an aide to a person being considered for a top Cabinet position said the person had not yet been asked to complete a detailed questionnaire to suss out red flags.
    . . .
    By comparison, the Obama administration was deep into the vetting process by early November — not just meeting with prospective nominees but compiling fat dossiers on them, according to emails made public through WikiLeaks. The Obama team also released a code of ethics for transition team members just a few days after the election to limit the influence of special interests. The Trump transition team, meanwhile, is full of lobbyists and has not released such a code.

    @Bill- Deplorable Me, #42:

    The right’s persecution of Clinton is a load of hypocritical bullshit. They never had any problems with the George W. Bush administration’s extensive use of private email servers belonging to the Republican National Committee, and didn’t even bat an eye when anywhere from 5 million to 22 million emails went missing that were considered relevant to multiple Congressional investigations that were in progress at the time. (5 million was the initial estimate; subsequent developments led to the 22 million count.) The vanishing email act was the Bush administration’s response to formal subpoenas ordering that the emails be turned over to the investigators.

    “” certainly would have kept the Bush administration’s private server system hidden from potential hackers, right?

    How do you rationalize that this was OK for a presidential administration, while Clinton’s use of a private server as Secretary of State was not? It’s totally absurd.

  34. 45

    Bill… Deplorable Me


    The media paid some attention to the Bush email chicanery but spent considerably less ink and airtime than has been devoted to Clinton’s digital communications in the past 18 months.

    You know why? Because Bush did not conduct Government business on an RNC server. That was the RNC’s server for RNC business.

    Hillary used her sieve/server for ALL State Department business, including the sending, receiving and storing of highly classified information. See, there’s a difference. RNC…. State Department. Campaign information vs classified information. OK vs against the f***ing law.

    Unless, of course, you have some evidence, even thin evidence, that Bush was putting classified information on that server… like Hillary was doing, by the thousands. Do you? I didn’t think so.

    What you have is something else to whine about as you crybaby your way through a terrible defeat due to having a terrible candidate that was saddled with the terrible legacy of a terrible Obama administration.

    Oh, so when we are talking about a Republican, what you want to suspect is a basis for an investigation? The RNC is a political party, NOT a government entity. Thus, liberals don’t get to arbitrarily probe into whatever they like.

    When you conduct ALL government business on a private, secret, unsecured server, it is absolutely inevitable that some classified information ended up where it didn’t belong. You provide me with a good rationale for assuming government business was conducted on the RNC server (aside from what you WANT to believe) and we’ll talk.

    It may come as a shock to you, Greg, but some people respect the rules and laws.
