As the ever-expanding scandal of Hillary Clinton’s emails grew exponentially last week, it was revealed that the FBI, which is now conducting an investigation of the matter, had come across some 305 emails that were deemed confidential. In fact, two of the emails were deemed to be top secret.
In another startling revelation, there was found to be a back-up “server” to her private server in New York. Strangely enough, it was located in Denver in a “mom and pop” business loft. Appropriately enough, it was hidden away in the toilet area, which is apparently where Hillary’s candidacy is headed.
Also last week, Hillary deigned to hold a small press conference in a gymnasium where she was asked if she had wiped her server clean. As usual, she was quick to respond with a lame joke about using a cloth to wipe the server. This was preceded by one of her appearances where she joked about the email imbroglio by saying, in a bobble-headed manner, that she had recently opened a snap-chat account where “the messages just disappear by themselves.” As usual her joke fell flat.
Adding to her duplicitous conduct, it was noted that neither her myriad cell phones nor the New York server were government issued. Her proclivity for secrecy and obfuscation has been on display for all her political life.
The number of federal statutes that she has violated continues to grow bigger and bigger, while she famously stated, “This is not about me (the scandal). It happens all the time in government where various agencies have different standards when it comes to confidentiality.”
In all of this, it seems inconceivable that her boss, President Obama, did not know that during the four-year period when she was secretary of state, she was using a PRIVATE server. Another facet of the scandal is the fact that her two closest confidantes had government-issued Blackberries that were strangely destroyed after it was revealed they had access to Clinton’s server.
All of the above indicates that Hillary and her “shadow government” were operating outside the boundaries of her position.
While her latest troubles were going on, her husband Bill was conspicuously playing golf with President Obama. One can only imagine the topic of conversation between the two political opponents. Whether Bill was asking Obama for a presidential pardon should Hillary completely implode, or if he was inquiring whether the prez would be backing Joe Biden’s apparent entry into the race is open to speculation. Looming on the horizon for Hillary once the email issue has run its course is the investigation into the foibles of the Clinton Foundation.
While Hillary’s travails have captured most of the headlines, it was also revealed last week that the side deals of the Iran agreement have more legitimacy in Iran than the agreement itself. The latest news was that in addition to Iran providing soil samples to the International Atomic Energy Agency, that Iran itself would be inspecting any activity at the military nuclear site. Apparently our chief negotiator, John Kerry, was oblivious to the Iran-UN axis of evil.
