Is there anyone here NOT troubled by Hillary's not cooperating with the IG investigation? [View all]

She's talked so much about how cooperative, open, transparent, and eager to help she has been.

I'm not a Hillary fan, but even I didn't know about that. It was somewhat surprising news to me. It certainly contradicts the image she has been trying to project on this.

Again, doesn't this contradict her statements about cooperation? BillZBubb May 2016 #9
Declining to be interviewed doesn't mean she's not cooperating underthematrix May 2016 #16
It means she's not cooperating fully. She always talked like she was cooperating fully. No hedges. BillZBubb May 2016 #20
