Basically, HRC's campaign put this out to calm down her donors

They're literally channeling George Costanza as their new explanation


"Was that wrong? Should I have not done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing was frowned upon, you know, ‘cause I've worked in a lot of offices and I tell you people do that all the time"

wait...no. This was from the letter

"Had Secretary Clinton known of any concerns about her email setup at the time, she would have taken steps to address them. She believed she was following the practices of other Secretaries and senior officials."

7. Someone in that office gagged the underlings, so I think it was an

intentional attempt to create plausible deniability.

4. People do it all the time - Clinton is always Mrs Me-Too.

 

George invades Iraq - me too!

George discriminates gay people - I can do that too!

Barack is pushing TPP and TTIP - me too!

Oh look - I can invade countries too! (Libya)

Yeah, so I mispoke about HIV victims and Nancy Reagan. But I lost someone too and this is all about me. By the way - everybody got it wrong back then! RIGHT?

6. If you're heading an intelligence operation

you definitely cannot plead the 5th or ignorance--they are THE most anal retentive people in the cosmos when it comes to drilling protocols.

Not only a bad excuse but very insulting to the intelligence communities..
