Hillary Just Can't Shake Those Emails

The three big issues that have dogged Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, her husband Bill, Benghazi, email server, just won’t seem to go away no matter how hard the media and her team try. Once more the controversy regarding her emails has arisen and this time it’s a harder hit.

The latest blast on Clinton comes from none other than the State Department Inspector General. The Inspector's report states that the former Secretary of State had not been compliant regarding the rules nor did she inform the top brass in regards to her using a private email server. Clinton had been accused of compromising security when emails thought to be of a highly classified asset were leaked.

The Inspector's report also pointed out that Clinton should have been more compliant regarding the surrender of all the emails that related with State Department business, and should have done so before leaving office. Her actions are thus a violation of the Federal Records Act.

The problem gets thicker for Clinton as she put her foot in her mouth again. She'd told the press she had approval to use a personal server but when the authorities checked it out, she had not. Former Secretaries of State had been interviewed but several of Hillary Clinton's aides declined to cooperate and one was given immunity from prosecution by the Department of Justice.

All this adds to the growing concerns regarding Hillary Clinton's character. She been caught lying so many times that no one knows when she's telling the truth. This entire email debacle appears to be one of incompetence, recklessness, arrogance, and sloppiness on Clinton and her staff. As more and more details come out, Clinton should just shut up until the very last because the public is not interested in how well she does weaseling out of this mess, but are concerned with the fact she not only got into it for the above reasons.

Perhaps she thinks she can do no wrong and part of politics is lying your way out of any situation and blaming others for it.

Voters are now going to have to evaluate that if as Secretary of State, Clinton got herself in all sorts of trouble that still lingers on. If she couldn't handle a post of importance like she did, how will she stand up as chief executive officer of the entire country?

This issue isn't going away anytime soon and will dog Clinton well after the election whether she wins or loses.

Three faux scandals!! Why on earth cannot repub/conservatives run on issues? They have no integrity, no moral high ground to run on…. so these faux scandals seem to be what they have to entice the American people into digging the hole a bit deeper with, conservatism and it’s voodoo economics.

“faux scandals”? Nope…just Hillary’s chickens coming home to roost.

Billy was impeached for lying.

Benghazi actually happened and Hillary lied about what happened

Hillary did mishandle her emails while SecState according to the official report.

Are we going to discuss fake scandals? Really?

No. I don’t think so.

If there were indictments and trials, that would be different. But there are no indictments or trials or anything of consequence. Lots of insinuations though. That’s not good enough.

Let’s talk about things that actually happened and matter!

Yesterday Hillary Clinton gave a terrific campaign speech on foreign policy. This was announced in advance. The speech was concise and quietly highlighted her competence, knowledge, and experience. She contrasted it with Trump, citing what Trump said in the past in order to support her case, and doing in such a way that absolutely destroyed him. She predicted his thin-skinned, nasty, name-calling response on Twitter and laughed at him. Right on cue, in real time, Trump did exactly as expected and proved Hillary’s point. It was devastating.

Not one Republican came to Trump’s defense. No one responded, even though the topic and nature of this speech was announced in advance. The Trump campaign and the GOP were utterly unprepared.

This was a great speech, and a great example of why Hillary Clinton will be the next president, and a good one at that.

Meanwhile, Trump continued to denounce a U.S. District Court judge based on his ethnicity. It is horribly racist and bigoted and bizarre, and just plain crazy. Why would anyone think it is a good idea to insult the ethnic background of a judge who will presiding over their case? Does Trump believe only white Republican judges will treat him fairly in court.

And Trump thinks Hillary should be arrested for insulting him. It’s almost impossible to believe that the party of Abraham Lincoln, William Howard Taft and Dwight Eisenhower will nominate this idiot.

E-mails? What E-mails? Try listening to the real news, like people who haven’t been hypnotized by their overlords.

Hillary Clinton gives what might have been the best speech of her life yesterday, and absolutely nails Trump. He responds by saying she is guilty and should go to jail because of the e-mail issue. Forget the intermediate steps, like actually being accused of a crime. Just declare her guilty and pack her off to jail.

Trump really is an idiot.

And just as HRC enjoys her best week, Trump has his worst one, and it is entirely his own fault. First the news on his fraud case is bad because a judge releases the sales materials Trump University was using to bilk the public. Trump responds by accusing the judge of being biased due to his Mexican heritage.

You can’t make this stuff up.

Yeah, Trump really went there. Not only did he go there, he insisted on revisiting the same place again and again. It was just a horrible display of bigotry. To call it an unforced error would be too kind. It is almost as if he wanted to do everything in his power to prove every bad thing ever said about him was absolutely true, and if that point didn’t take the first time, Trump would keep repeating the same horrible stuff until it was impossible to deny.

I think a lot of Republicans and conservatives will turn on Trump out of principle. They may not vote for Hillary Clinton, but being associated with a moral nightmare like Trump will be a bridge too far for all but the blindest of partisans and some white supremacists.

“If there were indictments and trials, that would be different. But there are no indictments or trials or anything of consequence.”

Apparently our liberal friends don’t watch the news. Be patient. Hilary’s world is slowly unraveling around her. “no indictments” ? Not yet, but plenty of evidence to do so.

Once her henchmen are given immunity and tell their stories it will be even worse. If the DOJ refuses to indict they will prove themselves the political arm of the executive branch they truly are, and will lose all credibility. At this point the dems are figuring out their next move, and hoping they can force Biden into running.

Better do it soon. Time left to get someone else’s name on the ballot in all 50 states will run out, and their candidate will be reduced to “write in” status. When that happens the mental giants that make up the majority of their voting base will completely screw it up.

Cover your ears and ignore the disaster going on in your party. LA LA LA LA LA !!! I can’t hear you. LMFAO !

Excuse me for shooting the messenger but you are nuts! If Hillary does not win the election she will continue to contribute in public service like the true patriot she is. She has already given a lot more in her service to our country than any two bit commenters on this blog.

Royal although we can’t seem to agree on the faux scandals conservatives continue to hang their hopes on, it seems, judging by your response we do agree repubs/conservatives cannot run on the moral high ground or on issues. Had you bothered to read the link I provided perhaps a conservatives view on the issue could have been provided, but alas you try to tell us the Bill Clinton witch trial is an important issue. Your response does indicate why Trump is the best repubs have to offer the country today.

“the faux scandals conservatives continue to hang their hopes on”

Nothing fake about her illegal use of a private email server. She knew better, but didn’t care.

Nothing criminal either dbs but that don’t seem to matter to conservatives, especially when this faux scandal is grouped in the conservative media with the other two faux scandals you guys are hanging your hat on. Well… that .. and the voter suppression laws your team continues to use….Zeig Heil conservatives to bad you couldn’t run on issues and character.

I watch the news, but more importantly, I read the news, and understand the English language, and I know the difference between news sources reporting and when they are advocating and manipulating. That’s the kind of behavior that I wouldn’t accept from another person in real life, so why would I accept it from a newsreader. Also, in real life, I know when someone has changed from a real reporter to an advocate reading a script that they’re required to read to get paid. We weren’t all born yesterday.
