Do we really want another 4-8 years of the Clinton aroma?

The Clintons.  Again.

By now, we’re certain our readers have heard all about the most recent scandal regarding HRH Hillary Clinton and her now-infamous email server.

For those living on Mars (or who listen exclusively to the mainstream media, which is pretty much the same thing), upon entering into the office of Presidential Consolation Prize, a.k.a. Secretary of State, HRH decided to eschew the regulations regarding official electronic correspondence – which state quite clearly that ALL government-related correspondence must be sent using government email systems – and set up her own private server in her New York mansion, thus keeping away menial busybodies (you know, people like inspectors general, FOIA requests, nuisances like that) and avoiding annoyances like, well, security.

In addition, of course, upon leaving office HRH avoided signing a government form indicating that all government-related correspondence had been turned over to the government, as she was required to do. 

Upon this being discovered, HRH went into classic Clintonian mode.  Dismissiveness.  Dissembling.  Misdirection.  Half-truths.  Untruths.  False equivalencies.  Proxy talking heads like James Carville and Lanny Davis throwing up chaff through whatever means necessary.

"Remember Whitewater? Cattle futures? Those magical Rose Law Firm billing files? Travelgate?  And of course MonicaGate."  

And, most recently, we learned that:

Hillary Clinton wiped “clean” the private server housing emails from her tenure as secretary of state, the chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi said Friday.

“While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, said in a statement.

Clinton was under a subpoena order from the panel for all documents related to the 2012 attacks on the American compound there. But David Kendall, an attorney for Clinton, said the 900 pages of emails previously provided to the panel cover its request. 

Kendall also informed the committee that Clinton’s emails from her time at the State Department have been permanently erased.


Again, classic Clinton.  Remember Whitewater? Cattle futures? Those magical Rose Law Firm billing files? Travelgate?  And of course MonicaGate.  Among many other blatant acts of perfidity.  And we’re supposed to give HRH the benefit-of-the-doubt when it comes to which emails on her private server were government-related and which weren’t?  Please. 

The point is this.  Can the Democratic Party actually want to nominate this person to be their Presidential candidate?  And, if so, can the US electorate tolerate the stench of what columnist George Will once (accurately) referred to as these “vulgarians” back in the White House?  Time will tell.

But for now, the principle that “laws are for the little people” is alive and well within the Democratic Party.
