Newsweek explains very well why the email scandal still isn't a scandal

From Newsweek:

THE SCANDAL OVER CLINTONíS EMAILS STILL ISNíT A SCANDAL

I really donít want to write this column. I know that just from reading the headline, a large number of people will immediately start wailing that Iím a Hillary Clinton partisan, and they wonít bother to read even this first paragraph. I also know that plenty of journalists paralyzed by groupthink will attack what I have to say.

18. Exactly. No one seems to mention that the IG report was about the State Department as a whole, not

 

any one person, including Hillary.

5. Excellent. Berners won't accept it, mainly because a scandal is only way forward for Sanders

20. I think you meant "accept it." You misplaced a homonym. (eom)

7. nothing dissuades zealots minds and we accept that fact, luckily zealots are not the voters

 

that make or break elections. There is 10-12% middle that are pretty reasonable with their expectations and actually will do some research.

Between trump's mouth and egomania and effective democratic framing of him and the election, we have a great chance to see a democratic landslide and retaking of congress. We do have some big issue....if GOP convention turns into riots in the streets of cleveland, that will be blamed on democrats. If the democratic convention turns into riots in the streets of Philly, that will be blamed on democrats.....if both conventions get riotous inside the convention....good chance that plays out out ok....its politics.

But outside the convention, the mess will be blamed on democrats...and I expect a lot of outside agitators will be in play to stir it up....both from the teaparty side and the extreme leftist/anarchist side

8. The Sanders' people want this to be true.

What does that say about them?

14. Well, it certainly doesn't say anything good3 about Sanders

Since it implies that the only way that he can 'win' the nomination is for Hillary to get indicted or for something bad to happen to her. In other words, Sanders would then win by default, not by his own merits.

13. Should be required reading for the whole electorate!

Or at least for media types who want a scandal instead of perspective!

19. Not a HRC fan, but I'm glad to know this will not affect her:

We can't elect fRump. it's unthinkable.
