TICKING OFF HILLARY CLINTON’S LIES
Two days after letting presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton off the hook in connection with her email scandal, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey paid a visit to Capitol Hill.
This wasn’t your typical partisan hearing, though.
At this point, it’s abundantly clear Clinton broke the law (and lied to the public about it) – but apparently that doesn’t matter.
Nonetheless, U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina endeavored to walk Comey through the scandal … point by point.
Here’s an excerpt:
REP. TREY GOWDY (SC): “Secretary Clinton said she never sent or received classified information over her private e-mail. Was that true?”
FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY: “Our investigation found …”
GOWDY: “So it was not true”?
COMEY: “That’s what I said.”
GOWDY: “Okay. Well, I’m looking for a shorter answer so you and I are not here quite as long. Secretary Clinton said there was not anything marked …”
COMEY: “That’s not true. There were a small number of portion markings on I think three of the documents.”
GOWDY: “Secretary Clinton said ‘I did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail, there is no classified material.’ That was true?”
COMEY: “There was classified e-mail.”
GOWDY: “Secretary Clinton said she used just one device. Was that true?”
COMEY: “She used multiple devices during the four years of her term as Secretary of State.”
GOWDY: “Secretary Clinton said all work-related e-mails were returned to the State Department.”
GOWDY: “Was that true?”
COMEY: “No. We found work-related emails – thousands that were not returned.”
GOWDY: “Secretary Clinton said neither she nor anyone else deleted work related e-mails from her personal account. was that true?”
COMEY: “That’s a harder one to answer. We found traces of work related e-mails in — on devices or slack space. Whether they were deleted or a server was changed out something happened to them. There’s no doubt that there were work related e-mails that were removed electronically from the e-mail system.”
GOWDY: “Secretary Clinton said her lawyers read every one of the e-mails and were overly inclusive. Did her lawyers read the e-mail content individually?”
So here’s the real question: At any point during her handling of this scandal has Clinton told damn truth?
This website has made no secret of its disdain for “Republicans” in Congress (including Marco Rubio, the GOP candidate Gowdy endorsed for president). In fact, the ratio of GOP-to-Democrat bashing on this site is probably 3-to-1 … which we attribute to the fact Democrats are more up-front about their slavish devotion to big government.
Accordingly, our progressively-inclined readers are probably sick unto death of reading screed after screed about Clinton’s email scandal this week.
Injustice is injustice. And the failure of our government to effectuate it in Clinton’s case isn’t merely deplorable – it is clear and compelling evidence of a systemic, anti-American bias that has infected far too many of our government institutions.
To be honest, progressives – who are well-known for their intolerance of injustice – should be screaming the loudest about the Clinton scandal.
And maybe some of them will …
