Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Grassley Cranks It Up on Clinton, State Department

As much as Hillary’s conduct and prevarications over her slimy reign as Secretary of State are reprehensible, it is fully expected and perhaps in a sad way understandable. Hillary has always been about her own desires, exclusively, with no reasonable expectation that she has a service-oriented or moral bone in her body. What you see is what you get, and the woman gets points for never really hiding it.

However, the behavior of the State Department amidst the Clinton scandals is different. State is not officially part of the Clinton campaign, yet acts like it. State is a cabinet-level agency, allegedly non-political and an organization of public servants. For them to work as hard as they are to help hide Hillary’s misdoings is a very sad commentary on the last remains of our democracy.

And Charles Grassley agrees.

Politico reports Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is amping up his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email setup and the special work status of her top confidante Huma Abedin.

Grassley took two new steps last week.

On Wednesday, he issued a letter to another Clinton aide, Heather Samuelson, who screened Clinton’s emails to initially determine which ones would be turned over to the government and made available publicly, and which ones were deemed private and would later be deleted. Among other things, Grassley’s letter asked what level of security clearance Samuelson had at State; several hundred of Clinton’s emails, which she routed through a private server, have since been deemed classified.

Grassley is also seeking documents from State in his long-running investigation of a job arrangement for top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Her designation as a “special government employee” allowed Abedin to work as an adviser to Clinton at State at the same time she consulted for a private company with close ties to the Clinton family.

But get this — Grassley says “Two-and-a-half-years ago I began a broad inquiry into the government’s use of special government employee programs. Two and a half years have passed and the State Department has still not produced the materials I have requested. The Department of State’s refusal to fully cooperate with my investigations is unacceptable.”

And State’s response? Basically, we’re busy. “The Department is committed to working with the Committee and providing responses as quickly as possible,” said a Department spokesperson. “But the growing effort needed to accommodate these requests is overwhelming the resources we have available.”
