Hillary's a liar, she had her chance to release her emails

By John Ruberry

The day after one of the biggest Octo­ber sur­prises in pres­i­den­tial pol­i­tics ever, Hillary Clin­ton called on FBI direc­tor James Comey to release, to use the phrase in his state­ment to his under­lings, his dis­cov­ery of emails that “appear to be per­ti­nent to our investigation.”

That inves­ti­ga­tion is cen­tered around Clinton’s self­ish and reck­less deci­sion to used a home-​brewed email server while she was Barack Obama’s Sec­re­tary of State, rather than a secure gov­ern­ment server.

Over 33,000 emails, which Clin­ton ludi­crously claimed to have been about per­sonal mat­ters such as yoga and her daughter’s wed­ding, were wiped clean from her server last year–the firm that did the work even bragged about it–after Con­gress sub­poe­naed them.

Despite the destruc­tion of evi­dence, many of those emails were recov­ered and we learned that some of them were marked clas­si­fied. In July, Comey said that Clin­ton and her staffers were “extremely care­less in their han­dling of very sen­si­tive, highly clas­si­fied information.”

Clin­ton lied.

Of course Clin­ton could have released those emails to Con­gress when it asked for them. Pos­si­bly within that cache could have been those emails found on the lap­top shared by her long­time aide, Huma Abe­din, and her estranged hus­band, sex­ting fiend Anthony Weiner. That lap­top was seized by the FBI in an unre­lated inves­ti­ga­tion of Car­los Dan­ger for inap­pro­pri­ate online con­tact with an under­age teen. Abe­din swore under oath that she sur­ren­dered all doc­u­ments with State Depart­ment emails to the FBI.

Abe­din lied too.

So Hillary wants the FBI to imme­di­ately release, or at least before Elec­tion Day, those “per­ti­nent emails.”

Clin­ton had her chance, but she chose, to use the term uti­lized by her pro­tec­tors in the main­stream media, to yield to her “pen­chant for secrecy.”

Because what Hillary really has is a pen­chant for corruption.

The sad part of this story is that about half of Amer­i­can vot­ers will still vote for Hillary Clin­ton – no mat­ter what.

The day after one of the biggest October surprises in presidential politics ever, Hillary Clinton called on FBI director James Comey to release, to use the phrase in his statement to his underlings, his discovery of emails that “appear to be pertinent to our investigation.”

That investigation is centered around Clinton’s selfish and reckless decision to used a home-brewed email server while she was Barack Obama’s Secretary of State, rather than a secure government server.

Over 33,000 emails, which Clinton ludicrously claimed to have been about personal matters such as yoga and her daughter’s wedding, were wiped clean from her server last year–the firm that did the work even bragged about it–after Congress subpoenaed them.

Despite the destruction of evidence, many of those emails were recovered and we learned that some of them were marked classified. In July, Comey said that Clinton and her staffers were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

Clinton lied.

Of course Clinton could have released those emails to Congress when it asked for them. Possibly within that cache could have been those emails found on the laptop shared by her longtime aide, Huma Abedin, and her estranged husband, sexting fiend Anthony Weiner. That laptop was seized by the FBI in an unrelated investigation of Carlos Danger for inappropriate online contact with an underage teen. Abedin swore under oath that she surrendered all documents with State Department emails to the FBI.

Abedin lied too.

Clinton had her chance, but she chose, to use the term utilized by her protectors in the mainstream media, to yield to her “penchant for secrecy.”

Because what Hillary really has is a penchant for corruption.

The sad part of this story is that about half of American voters will still vote for Hillary Clinton–no matter what.
