Many of you that have only been casually following this story might be wondering just why the whole thing has completely consumed her candidacy. I mean it was just an email server and we all have email, right?

Well, it goes well beyond that and seems to be just the tip of the malfeasance iceberg in the latest scandal (read: illegal wrongdoing that in this case points to other legal wrongdoings) to plague the Clintons, who for some reason seem to ALWAYS be embroiled in scandal, dating back to the 1980’s.

  1. She willfully and knowingly mishandled highly classified U.S. State Department and CIA information.
  2. She has never fully come clean on why she even had a separate email server to begin with. Most, including myself, speculate that it was to preemptively cover up illegal activities involved with “pay to play” scheme where foreign governments and entities were contributing millions of dollars to The Clinton Foundation where that money was essentially laundered and then used to finance the Clinton’s lavish lifestyle and in return they received favorable treatment with U.S. foreign policy.
  3. In her zeal to hide from law and regulation, and her flouting of U.S. laws, she created one of the greatest security leaks of the last 25-years when her server was penetrated by at least one hostile foreign entity, and this goes back to Benghazi. Al Qaeda seems to have had SOME access to the information pointing out just how weak the annex’s security was.
  4. The scandal is now spreading and now implicates President Obama as it is known that he had prior knowledge of the existence of the ‘shadow server’ prior to his claiming that he only knew of it’s existence when the story hit the papers.
  5. Hillary’s email server compromise lead to other compromises that allowed an even greater penetration of the main secured State Department’s computer system.

Here is some light reading, that in a few moments, will bring you up to speed on just why this whole thing is so damn filthy.

  • She is a brazen liar.

      That’s the amazing part. She is such a prolific and BAD liar, why has she not already been locked up.
      She is protected by the Obama administration and an incurious media that supports her solely because of her party affiliation.

        Well, notice that Fauxcahontas has kept a pretty low profile.
        For now.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          I was positive that Elizabeth Warren was going to be in the race by now. They might let it slide until the Dem convention and do the switch at that time.
          Then again, maybe Obama is so corrupt and the Media so in the tank (almost a guarantee that they are), that nothing will see the light of day, until Trump gets elected.
          Hillary gets elected.

          If that happens, be prepared for American gun ownership to double, right before we have an official sorting of differences.
          I’m not using hyperbole either. Militia membership will increase and then it’s kickoff time.
          A good warning would be sudden ‘political unreliability’ within our military.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Warren knows she is The Spare.
            She must be furiously digging up dirt on Hillary behind the scenes.

          • Jaedo Drax

            Since the approval rating of the Military is considerably higher than most politicians, it’s not inconceivable that a military dictatorship could be on the horizon.

            The Reign of Warrior Poet James “Mad dog” Mattis would be very interesting. Some might even say controversial.

            “I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all”
            General Mattis

    She placed the entire nation at risk from her national security breech!!!!

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Hillary hasn’t fooled anyone who doesn’t want to be fooled. She has become Wile E. Coyote running off the edge of the cliff and is suspended in midair before gravity catches up with her. If a doddering old socialist who isn’t even a registered Democrat threatens to sweep her in the first two contests, she is in deep shit having lost any momentum. It’s not only Trump, but any halfway articulate Republican can mop the floor with her in any debate whether she is indicted or not.

  • barryjr

    I don’t think Hilary will be charged. If Obama let’s her be charged the gloves come off and she’ll reveal how involved Buckwheat was which we all know can’t happen. Watch her skip through this with that evil grin on her face and middle finger extended to the peasants.

  • Barrington Minge

    When is someone going to burst this obnoxious woman’s bubble?
    God help America ( and the rest of us ) Hillary or Trump…what a choice!!!!
