Hillary Clinton’s Emails Expose Washington’s Culture of Duplicity

“I was there. I was a senior advisor. I didn’t know that,” former White House political advisor David Axelrod said of Hillary Clinton’s shadowy private email practices. He offered that self-defense on June 17 in an unsolicited effort to defend former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley, who claimed that he was similarly unaware of Clinton’s email methods. “The question is, what are people focused on? What do they care about?” Axelrod continued. His implication was that no one will or even should care about Clinton’s decision to jeopardize national security in service to her own cherished “convenience” and then lie repeatedly about the affair in a press conference. Axelrod was no doubt speaking for much of official Washington when he tried to wish Clinton’s email scandal away. Not only is he now implicated in it, it seems as though much of the American political class was well aware of Hillary Clinton’s careless and privileged communications practices.

    The stuff she handed to the state department was edited by her and then the state department edited it again. We will never know the full extent of her crooked deals.

    • It is criminal.

        It’s who they are, after all.

      She won’t win with this.
      I wonder why she is even trying.

        Both Clintons getting away with all sorts of outrageous things their whole lives.

          Precisely!

          Chelsea is not likely any better.

        She SHOULDN’T win, but if the GOP nominates some lackluster idiot like Jeb Bush, then she likely will win it.
        The system is rotten and corrupt.

        In any event, you can bet the Russians and Chineese WERE reading her email, and passing along what ever info they could to our enemies, which kind of explains why the last several years of foreign policy disasters have been a bit more than coincidence or even Presidential ineptitude.
        It’s real hard to play poker well when the other side can always see your cards.

        In conclusion, I call for her execution.

          If Ronald Reagan knew that they knew what he was holding he would still say try me.

          Or at least found guilty of treason by a federal official during time of war.

        The Clintons have been getting away with this kind of garbage for over half a century. Why wouldn’t she think it would work? Why do you think it won’t? Just because it shouldn’t, doesn’t count for squat anymore.

      • Exile1981

        because she is narcissistic and sociopathic and while she knows this is illegal behavior she doesn’t believe the laws apply to her. Also she figures she can brow beat the media into helping cover for her.

      yes.. real dirt scrubbed

      • Exile1981

        We could just ask the Chinese and Russians for copies of the emails? I’m sure they long ago hacked those servers.

        • mauser 98

          would be amazing if Chicoms did not hack emails

          there is dirt on all of them
          Boo Hoo Boner gives Barry whatever he wants

          • Exile1981

            All the alberta gov’t servers have been under attack for weeks according to people I deal with in various agencies. I’m sure it’s the chicoms as well but I wouldn’t be surprised to see the new premier blaming it on those nasty conservatives.

            Good one!

    If we did as they did, we’d be incarcerated.
