Hillary Clinton’s Scandal Is Metastasizing

THIS IS LOOKING LIKE MORE THAN JUST A “SPEED BUMP …”

|| By FITSNEWS || Looks like that “speed bump” on the road to Hillary Clinton‘s coronation as the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee is a bit bigger than we thought …

Clinton is suddenly facing a firestorm of criticizing for conducting public business on a private email account … well, multiple accounts, if U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy is to be believed.  And the email scandal – which is churning hot and heavy among “Republican” types – is being buttressed by a crony capitalist scandal that’s eroding Clinton’s support from the left.

(Including in early-voting states like South Carolina).

Clinton’s private account was housed on a server located insider her $1.7 million Chappaqua home – and registered to an individual who, as of this writing, has yet to be identified as a living, breathing human being.

Ruh-roh …

Whether this individual – the mysterious Eric Hoteham – is found to exist or not, Clinton is in real trouble.  And that’s before we get to anything of national significance that may have been discussed, negotiated or decided via her “off the books” email account.

How come?  Well, according to a 2009 regulation from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), officials using personal accounts are required to preserve a record of any public business done on those accounts.

“This rule is clear,” the liberal website Mother Jones noted. “If Clinton used personal email to conduct official business – which apparently did not violate any federal rules at the time – all of those emails had to be collected and preserved within the State Department’s record-keeping system.”

They weren’t …

Not only that, Clinton’s “off the books” email account appears to have been used extensively to circumvent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests – including those which explicitly requested records of public business done on private email accounts (as any good FOIA writer knows to include in their template).

“Republicans” see the scandal as a way to reignite their investigation over a 2012 terrorist attack against an American diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya.  Meanwhile Democrats view it as a way to drive home the narrative that Clinton is a bought-and-paid-for tool of Wall Street.

Either way, it’s bad news for the party’s “nominee-in-waiting …”

Maybe Ms. Clinton’s deleted emails can be found by an IT expert just as the supposedly “irretrievably lost” emails of IRS employee Lois Lerner were.

Willing to bet that she has 100% of all of the emails – and will produce them all. That family is a well oiled political machine. And the GOP will let this die a quick death because – they do it too. It’s like trying to make an issue out of kissing your spouse. They all do it. They also kiss other spouses, non-spouses, young girls – but they ain’t gonna bash each other over it. Mul-boy will make a stink for a week, then get a call from Cruz, Christie, Jeb, Walker, Rubio and Paul saying – “let up, we all use our personal emails to avoid stuff.”

Yes, Clinton has said release all the emails. She does not care. But like Benghazi, its a Fake News scandal. All those other guys just accidently lost their emails, just like the Bush and Rove emails that went missing. But that was not a scandal, because they have an R.

Just like going going after or blaming previous administrations be they R or D. We only have one President at at time.

Reply
Jack March 5, 2015 at 4:01 pm

Blame should be assess where it belongs, not on who is President at any given time. The problem with the far right is that Obama is to blame for anything and everything they perceive as bad, even those things that occurred before he was President. The economy collapses in late 2008 and early 2009, unemployment goes through the roof, and Obama is to blame.
Unemployment goes down, the economy improves and its all in spite of Obama.

idcydm March 5, 2015 at 4:13 pm

I agree Bush had his problems in many areas but I expect current Administrations to fix problems not blame previous Administrations. Is the economy better, yes but aside from that the problems inherited have gotten worse.

Jack March 5, 2015 at 4:25 pm

What problems have gotten worse? The country was on the brink of economic collapse in December of 2008.

idcydm March 5, 2015 at 4:30 pm

I said the economy is better what more do you want. If you don’t know what the other problems are you must be wearing blinders or you think there are none.

50 years ago I learned the best way NOT to check a baby’s diaper for stink was to stick your finger in it.

I don’t care if you poured lighter fluid on your finger and set it on fire the stink would not go away.

The finger tip on my left hand that I used to push the VOTE button for Buck Farrack still stinks

The finger tip on my right hand that I used to push the VOTE button for Nikki Haley still stinks

I may face arrest when I go to vote for the next President but one thing is certain I ain’t going to pull it out to push the VOTE button for the Queen of Cackle

Hahaha, this was a leak from Clinton to get it out of the way before she announces. A fucking email server doesn’t have legs. She already said she will give whoever the emails requested and guess what, they will be the same emails she gave out during the Benghazi witch hunt making some people look foolish and the whole thing blowing over when she announces in the summer.

Could explain how Putin kept playing Obama like a fiddle over the course of a few years. Go Hillary! Can we get some more her poor sportmansship PUMA (party unity my ass) hacks that she tacitly supported out here to continue explaining why Hillary – the person – is so much more important than any other candidate, the party, the office, the country etc ad nasuem.

My new neighbor from Amarillo recently moved to my street. She is an adorable filly, cute but shy. So far I’m the only guy who has seen her, which means I’m the only dog in the hunt. She is a petite little gal whose son ( a long-distance truck driver) asked me to “look after her” and told me that she doesn’t talk much but is a good listener. She’s the sweetest, most beautiful woman I’ve ever met. Max, she is the only woman I’ve ever met from Texas — and I would have thought they would be tall, wild, and obnoxious. If I had known you were hiding women like her in Texas I would have been across the state line years ago. When I am around her, though, I am a much quieter, calmer, saner person (?). Even her dogs have accepted me as a friend (always a good sign!) .

Interesting…she talked about the cold, strong winds and the tornadoes. She has concerns about high humidity here — hope it isn’t going to cause any health problems for her. I’ve been reading about Amarillo, and didn’t realize how far north it is, but it’s an interesting city.

I still remember as a little boy, being able to see 8 tornados at the horizon from my back yard.

I seen ’em too! … Multiple big black “dancing finger” hanging from a dark, mean looking front … Scary, fur sure.

shifty henry March 6, 2015 at 1:32 pm

About three years ago I was looking across the fields when that big dark cloud appeared and it had five “fingers” twisting and dancing. I was fascinated and kept watching it slowly move and then I realized these could join to become a tornado. When it passed from my sight I didn’t think about it again — until the next morning when I learned that it did become one three miles past me and did some tremendous damage. This is the only time I’ve seen that happen.
