It didn’t take former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s spin doctors long to portray Ms. Clinton, once again telling the truth. Beyond high information voters’ wildest scenarios concerning last Sunday’s Chris Wallace interview on Fox News, she persists with the fable she did not lie about her personal email server.
When confronted by Wallace about her version of FBI Director James Comey’s sworn testimony before Congress where he said just that over and over again, the Clinton we all know, claimed she “short-circuited” during the Fox News questioning. She claimed FBI Director James Comey validated her statements regarding her private email as “truthful.”
Wallace responded with video tape of Comey’s testimony that absolutely proved, beyond a reasonable doubt, what the director had said in answer to House Chairman Trey Gowdy’s (R-SC), question that Clinton’s statements regarding her email use while secretary of state were not backed up by the facts uncovered in their investigation.
Hillary was caught dead to rights lying several more times to Wallace. Her answers were orchestrated and generalized as time after time Wallace produced undisputed truth of her false testimony. Not unlike her husband’s famous “is” statement following the mass cover-up of the Monica Lewinsky affair which was nationally televised, Hillary has lied over and over, continuously. Her handlers are betting that most Americans either don’t read or listen to the news, or blindly don’t care whatsoever.
Clinton told Wallace that Comey’s investigation “vindicated” her public statements about her email usage, specifically that she never sent or received classified information. On Friday, after days of meetings with her handlers, Clinton backtracked, saying she “misspoke” on Fox News and in a subsequent interview with a Colorado television station several days later.
She said of her FBI interview, Comey had said in a later statement, she was “forthcoming and cooperative during their sit-down with her.” More lies. He had added Clinton’s past statements concerning her never sending or receiving classified material were not accurate because investigators found several emails that did contain classified information, though it was not labeled properly, meaning Clinton may have not realized she had received it.
In familiar “Clintonesque” language, she told Wallace she meant to tell him that her comments “in private to the FBI” were truthful and they were the same as ones she made in public. Continuing to lie, she said Comey himself had validated her remarks as “truthful.”
In reality, Comey refused to make the value judgment that Clinton lied to the public about her email use, saying “stating the facts” of his investigation did not back up some of her claims, in sworn House testimony.
Did Hillary “short-circuit,” or, like her husband, explain away the facts with murky explanations that only an ambulance-chasing attorney would use as a last resort? Americans need to pay attention to the continuous routine of Hillary’s lies and decide if multiple lies are just the surface of a lifetime of lying. Remember, most lies were not under sworn testimony, but then again, that doesn’t seem to matter anyway.
