Hillary Clinton’s Email Scandal Keeps Spreading …

Hillary Clinton‘s email scandal just won’t go away …

This week, two bits of bad news:  First, U.S. District Court judge Emmet Sullivan ruled Clinton’s aides should be questioned regarding their roles in setting up the former U.S. Secretary of State’s “homebrew” email server – a private address that enabled her to conduct official business (including some highly classified business) in the shadows.

“This case is about the public’s right to know,” Sullivan wrote in his ruling.

Indeed it is …

Sullivan could also direct the government to subpoena Clinton and her longtime aide Huma Abedin, although he did not take that step this week.

Clinton’s email scandal has sparked intense speculation regarding the possibility that she could be indicted at some point during the 2016 presidential race – a campaign that has seen her cough up a commanding lead over independent socialist U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

As we noted at the beginning of this scandal, Clinton’s problems extend far beyond the legal ramifications of her actions – and the issues it raises regarding her trustworthiness.  Her email scandal has highlighted her corporate cronyism and pay-to-play warmongering – two things hard-core liberal voters are likely to hold against her (with good reason).

Which brings us to Clinton’s other bit of bad news this week …

According to The Intercept, emails found on Clinton’s server show her aides celebrating the sale of Boeing F-15s to our “partner in peace” Saudi Arabia – which is currently conducting a “shockingly brutal Saudi air campaign in Yemen.”

Clinton’s aides referred to the deal as “Great News!” as they vowed to keep her in the loop – and reach out to executives at Boeing.

The Chicago-based company has been a huge contributor to Clinton.  For example, it doled out $900,000 to her foundation not long after she used her influence to lobby a Russian state-owned airline seeking to buy its jets.

That purchase was arranged using funding from the controversial U.S. Export-Import Bank.

Boeing also subsidized one of Clinton’s pet projects at the U.S. State Department – and one of the company’s lobbyists raised big bucks on behalf of the “Ready for Hillary” movement, which laid the groundwork for Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Saudi Arabia has used its new Boeing jets to wage an “indiscriminate” bombing campaign in Yemen – where, ironically, America left a huge cache of weapons behind for fighters loyal to the Islamic State (IS).

The Saudi air campaign has “killed journalists and ambulance drivers,” and has taken out medical centers and multiple buildings in residential areas – contributing to a major refugee crisis.

But hey … Boeing got paid, right?

So it’s …

“Great News!”

And if I had done what Dick Cheney did I would be in Guantanamo Bay or on trial at the Hague. The man lied to get us into a war so that his “former” employer could reap billions of dollars in war profits, resulting in the death of tens of thousands of innocent people and thousands of American soldiers. Not to mention draining two trillion dollars out of the American Taxpayer. I am sorry but my conscience is clear. I don’t want the GOP anywhere near the White House in the foreseeable future.

Nah. The Republicans always try to prosecute people they are afraid of. If they are looking for a way to put you in jail you know they are worried.

Why are we not investigating all of the emails that the RNC under its current leadership made disappear under Bush and Cheney. Why did Trey Gowdy refuse to answer the question of whether or not he had used a private email server. The public knows this is bull shit. If Clinton did anything wrong, which they have yet to prove, it was a fraction of what the last Administration did. Its just corrupt GOP politics as usual.

The Boeing sale made the news in 2011. Congress made a squawk about it in 2010 due to Israel. I don’t recall a big deal being made out of it since that time. The manufacturing of them was suppose to boost the US economy a few billion each year they were being constructed. I don’t think the emails about the deal are some big scandal.

Her email scandal has been off the front page lately, and the Republicans are partially responsible for that. The Republican primary has basically taken it off the front page. The scandal has not gone away, it is just in abeyance to the primaries on both sides.
The scandal has a chance to do Hillary some real harm, especially if she is indicted. Remember a few weeks ago, the Democrats were planning on putting Hillary on watch and having backup in the wings.
There is the very possibility that this scandal could have a major impact on the campaign season. Hillary could possibly be political “dead meat” if this scandal is pursued.
A few weeks ago, the political future was beginning to look very bleak for Hillary until the primaries hit full stride.
Time will tell, I don’t think Hillary has hit the bottom yet, and when the scandal blooms again, it will be dramatic and a disaster for her.

Biden waiting in the wings – flew out the door after she testified about Benghazi in October. There was no more talk of it after she held up to that for 11 hours. None of the Clinton “scandals” have ever gone away and only one has ever panned out- Bill lied about Monica and a blowjob. So we’ll see.

erneba February 23, 2016 at 7:26 pm

You are still wrong, the Bengazhi hearings did not put Biden on watch, the email server issue was responsible for the Democrats talking about having a backup.
And also, the Bengazhi hearing did put Hillary record as telling a lie about the cause of the attack. Also put her on record as lying to the relatives of the dead, a despicable act on her part. She also took a beating because she ignored security at the location and failed to respond once the embassy was under attack. The press ignored it and so did you Dems.

JB February 23, 2016 at 7:38 pm

You obviously don’t follow Dem media. They didn’t have the same take that you do. And any worries about Hillary for the Dems subsided somewhat after her Benghazi testimony. They also felt Joe had no clear path to win in a general election.

Unfortunately, you have conflated the two issues.

It just is typical of what this administration has been doing. The sad part is the MSM, they also refuse to report on any of Obama’s and Hillary’s woes.
It just surprises me that people Like JB take whatever is shoveled down their throats by Democrats, and therefore the MSM.

It will be a factor, but not a big enough one unless an actual indictment drops. If Trump wins as it looks like he will, Trump stands a good chance of destroying his own chances at getting elected.

I suspect that Hillary will drop out of the race in late March for ”health reasons” but in reality under a cloud of indictment ….Biden will be levered in something like Hubert Humphrey was in 1968 after Pres Johnson dropped out …it’s their Party , their Convention and their rules ; they can change THEIR rules in an ”emergency ”

Look at the methodology. Considering that, SC is doing great to be 32nd. After all, according to Fitnews, Haley is governor of the dumbest, poorest, most corrupt state in the Union. 32nd? Meh.
