Can you remember as a kid the familiar parent/child talk about, “Just because Johnny did it doesn’t mean you should too?” The Hillary Clinton campaign is now saying, “Well yeah, but he did it too.” This is her latest approach to her private server. Just about every legal scholar, the FBI criminal investigation and federal judges in this campaign have severely criticized her appoach. Her deception and lies are out in the open now.
She is openly exposed to daily attacks about her private server. It appears she destroyed 30,000 emails for one reason. Those emails would prove her criminal guilt and ruin her quest for the Golden Grail, President of the United States. Her backroom spin-doctors are feverishly attempting to change the subject with the assistance of their biggest weapon; the left-wing Hillary-backing media.
Republicans are seizing on reports of friction between Hillary Clinton and her number one target of, “He did it too,” former Secretary of State Colin Powell. They are trying to bolster their case that the Democratic presidential nominee lied to the FBI and Fox News Moderator Chris Wallace, two weeks ago on his nationally televised political program concerning classified information.
A noticeably irritated Powell last weekend publicly rejected Clinton’s alleged comments to the FBI naming him as the inspiration for her private email setup at the State Department. “But Johnny did it too.”
Powell publicly said, “Her people have been trying to pin it on me? “The truth is she was using her email setup for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did,” he told People Magazine. The denouncement by Powell led to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to comment on Monday. “The episode raises serious questions about whether she lied to the FBI.”
The former Secretary of State under President George W. Bush added, “Clinton’s pattern of serial dishonesty is completely unacceptable for a candidate seeking the nations highest office, and her refusal to tell the truth and own up to her poor judgment is a preview of how she would conduct herself if elected president.”
That sounds like, “Hillary, go to your room and your father and I will be in soon.”
The facts are as follows; Hillary Clinton told the FBI, while under criminal investigation for the private email server, that Powell, who used a personal email account during his time at the State Department, had advised her to do the same early on in her tenure as President Obama’s Secretary of State. Oh really? “He did it too mom.”
Her account, while not under oath, reportedly was contained in summaries of the three-and a-half hour interview distributed to Congress last week. It shouldn’t surprise well-informed Americans who have witnessed this woman and the Clinton cover-ups from her stint on the Watergate legal team. The Watergate head attorney fired her, publicly exclaiming, “She’s a damn liar.”
This deceit runs through the Whitewater Scandal, the Lewinsky bimbo eruption that led to husband Bill Clinton’s impeachment, to the corruption of the Clinton Foundation. The summaries will definitely be used by Republicans or news outlets leaking details to expose Clinton’s hidden underside.
Hillary’s mode of operation is to get Americans to look at the shiny object over there. This time, it is Colin Powell. She has skated through these major scandals with a kind of stealth that keeps the Clintons above the law. We know that average Americans would have been imprisoned for that! Unquestionably! “Its Billy’s fault that this happened, not me.” Clinton’s campaign did not respond to an email request for comment. Getting into a public spat with Powell could hurt Clinton’s campaign dramatically, and they know it.
Predictably, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump ripped Clinton over the revelations. “Well, look, she’s a liar. She lied about the email. She lied about Colin Powell. I saw that, he was not happy. The whole thing is a scam with them. Everything is a scam, like grifters,” Trump said on Fox and Friends.
This is Hillary’s vulnerability; she is dishonest, untrustworthy and deceitful. It has now been exacerbated by repeated focus on her email setup. The FBI said that 30,000 previously undisclosed documents sent to or from Clinton while she was in office were destroyed. But computer experts deciphered the email trail. Nowthey are expected to be released to the public this fall before Election Day.
“But mom, that’s so unfair.”
In the interim, the State Department has explicitly warned employees about the need to preserve email records.
“Why mom, its no big deal.“
