It is important to note that no matter the crapstorm ongoing around the Clinton email scandal (and it is a scandal even if the NYT and WaPo do not think so), this is a crapstorm of her own making. I know progressives are not particularly fond of root cause analysis but had she not made a decision to take the time, effort and cost to set up a private email server (and this isn’t like setting up a gmail account – this involves commercial grade hardware as well) and in doing so, violate the very rules and regulations she required others at the State Department to follow, none of this would happen.
Comey did, in fact, state she lied about having classified documents on the server, that she did carry multiple devices and that she lied about Comey saying that everything she did was peachy keen. She also lied about Comey’s recent letter to Congress as going “only to 8 Republicans”.
This is what you get with the Clintons – pushing everything to the edge. Her supporters want to talk about Trump’s business practices in building actual tangible buildings – let’s have the same conversation about two people who became multi-millionaires without producing a single thing.
Bill Clinton has displayed the same tendencies out of government that he would have in government if the times permitted. The Congress actually had a spine based on principle back then (I can remember a time when the Executive was termed “irrelevant”) but 8 years of the Democrats trying to destroy Bush followed by 8 years of “Catch me if you can” Obama have changed what America is willing to accept from our elected leaders. Let us not forget that Obama had known communists (Van Jones) as advisers and tax cheats (Tim Geithner) as cabinet members in his first administration and successfully used race to break the back of Congressional Republicans.
Hillary Clinton is an ambulatory cesspool of corruption, a veritable undulating wave of fecal sludge. She is a pathological liar and a master grifter. There is no good side to her and to borrow her word, she is irredeemable and anyone who supports her or is close to her cannot avoid having crap smeared on them. She is the political Pigpen (the character in the Charlie Brown comic strip who is always surrounded by a perpetual cloud of dust).
