Following the release of the damning report by the State Department Inspector General, which pretty much proves Hillary committed a felony, and which found not only that Hillary’s error to surrender all emails violated federal government policy, but that her use of private email for public business was “not an appropriate method” of preserving documents and that her practices failed to comply with department policies meant to ensure that federal record laws are followed, everyone was waiting for the official response from Hillary’s camp. It came out moments ago from Reuters.
CLINTON SPOKESMAN SAYS INSPECTOR GENERAL’S REPORT SHOWS CLINTON’S EMAIL PRACTICES CONSISTENT WITH THAT OF FORMER SECRETARIES OF STATE
In other words, while Hillary’s gross lack of judgment was not “Bush’s fault” this time, she merely did the same errors as some other previous StateSecs did – in her opinion – and as a result you must acquit.
I don’t know what kind of wordsmithery she is trying to pull, but Hillary is lying about this too. Previous Secretarys of State did NOT conduct sensitive government business on their personal email.
So while we await further commentary from Clinton, we can only assume that Hillary’s sole justification for why she did what even the OIG now says was a violation of federal record policies, will not be “because others did it.”
Furthermore, as the Hill adds, we wonder if “other” Secretaries of State had the following exchange with their top advisors:
In November 2010, longtime aide Huma Abedin suggested that Clinton consider a state.gov email account or “releasing” her personal clintonemail.com address to the State Department.
Clinton might want to consider the move, Abedin suggested, “so you are not going to spam.”
But Clinton rejected the proposal from her then-deputy chief of staff for operations.
“Let’s get separate address or device but I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible,” she said.
The problem for Hillary, as a Romanian hacker is about to testify under oath and who previously said that he had gained access to the former Hillary’s “completely unsecured” server – “It was like an open orchid on the Internet”, “there were hundreds of folders” – both appear to have been very easily accessible.
So I can use that excuse next time the police pulls me over for speeding:
“That guy in the brown car is doing it!! So you have to let me go.”
That excuse rarely works in Kindergarten, it should not be tolerated now. Hillary for Prison 2016!
I have to wonder about the timing of this. The democrats are totally in charge of this entire process from the FBI to the DOJ. Could it be that they are going to Plan B after the latest polls show Trump beating Hillary? Are they going to throw Hillary under the bus before the convention and let ol’ Bernie take over?
