Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Clinton Doubles Down on Email Defense

You’d think with all the practice she has had not telling the truth, she’d be better at it. But perhaps sensing the pulse of the nation like a dog catches a scent before you ever know something is out there, Hillary just knows the truth doesn’t matter. She just needs to shovel out enough noise that the willfully ignorant will be able to flip the channel and she can move on to her next fundraiser.

That about sums up her most recent statements on her email hijinks while secretary of state.

Law or No Law

A defiant Hillary Clinton last week laid out her position: “Everything that I did was permitted. There was no law, there was no regulation, there was nothing that did not give me the full authority to decide how I was going to communicate,” Clinton said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” program.

Except that is neither right, nor a good thing. All government employees must create a government record of their work as public servants; there’s plenty of laws, regulations and precedent on that. Those records need to be searchable by the employing agency to respond to Freedom of Information Act requests. Again, plenty of laws, regulations and precedent. None of this is new.

The wrong part is saying that as leader of the United States, one who decides the course of the nation, one who, well, leads, her only standard is that she can do anything she wants, up and until someone convicts her in a full court. That’s a pretty sad moral standard to set. It is also the same one that got her hubby impeached.

Easier to Run a Server?

Clinton cited her lack of technological know-how as the reason she chose to use a personal account to send emails during her tenure at the State Department. “Maybe it was because I’m not the most technically capable person and wanted to make it easy as possible,” she said.

Now for that whopper to be true, people will need to accept that setting up and running a personal email server in your home is easier than having your agency’s IT staff hand you a yellow sticky note with your new email name and password on it.

Everybody Did It

“Previous secretaries of state have said they did the same thing,” she argued.

No and no. Colin Powell alone said he sent a personal email or two (from AOL, that’s how long ago it was), not that he ran his own server. The other secretaries served before email or did not use email, or used the State Department email system.

No Subpoena?

Clinton also rejected the notion that she has ignored a congressional subpoena to release more records. “I’ve never had a subpoena,” she said.

Oops. Last week, the House Select Committee on Benghazi –– a special panel created to examine the attack on a U.S. consulate –– released its subpoena to Clinton, which it issued in March.

One Device

“I had one device…” Clinton said.

Um, no. She was photographed or documented as secretary using a Blackberry, an iPad and her desktop to send and receive email. The emails released show she used at least two different email addresses.

The Government Has It All

“When I mailed anybody in the government, it would go into the government system,” Clinton told CNN.

Nope. Some of her emails, especially to close aides, went from one address on her personal server to another, and never touched a government system.

BONUS: The CNN interviewer did not challenge any of the false assertions by Hillary!
