"Hillary is going to be exonerated on emails"- was always GOP trick

As cool heads always knew, this was just another GOP trick to beat the clintons, which has failed like all the other made up smears they tried on bill and Hillary over the decades.

You have to realize that the couple republicans hate most MUST be a great democratic couple, or else they wouldn't care

1. She is due to be interviewed by the FBI in the next few weeks, per ABC.

 

WaPo is one of her water carriers so I wouldn't give them much credence. Jonathon Capehart and the Sanders photo ring a bell? He still hasn't apologized since his partner works for Clinton's campaign.

2. The $$$$$$$$$$ paid to both Clintons and their foundation is the bigger issue.

And it was not a GOP trick because the GOP did not force her to use an unsecured, private server.

3. Given her inability to tell the truth, I wouldn't be so sure.

 

Her first story was there was no classified information on her server. We know that is untrue.
Second Story was she never sent any classified information through her server. We know that is untrue.
Now it's nothing was marked classified....which doesn't mean much when one signs a NDA stating you're responsible for classified information, Marked or Unmarked.


She knew the stuff was coming in through her server. She knew she hadn't turned over all of her work related e-mails. Which means she knew she had retained classified information.

4. Going Gowdy fails again.

 

Gowdy is literally trying to hunt down Hannity callers. That is what this will look like in the end.

7. I don't think "exonerated" is the word

 

Perhaps not prosecuted, but the existence of the server itself is still indefensible.

11. "the next best thing to a real scandal is a phony one"

from the article:
As Bill and Hillary Clintonís entire careers have proven, when youíre trying to take someone down, the next best thing to a real scandal is a phony one. Letís not forget that when Bill was president, no alleged wrongdoing was too trivial to investigate, complete with dark insinuations about nefarious conspiracies and potential criminal behavior. You think the endless investigation of Benghazi is ridiculous? In the 1990s, congressional Republicans took 140 hours of sworn testimony on the urgent question of whether the Clintons had misused the White House Christmas card list. Seriously. Thatís something that actually happened.

---------
Folks, this is why I defend the Clintons so fiercely. Because most of the tripe used to attack them is some kind of phony scandal or huge distortion of reality. People will believe fucking anything if the lie is spread far and wide enough and repeated often enough.
