Hillary Clinton Has Always Avoided a Paper Trail
Hillary Clinton borders on paranoia when it comes to documenting her work, as if she considers transparency and oversight the enemy. In 1994, she said she didn’t even keep a diary. “It could get subpoenaed! I don’t write anything down,” she said. Recently, a video surfaced of a 2001 ABC report that shows Clinton saying she didn’t use email: “As much as I’ve been investigated and all of that, you know, why would I – I don’t even want – why would I ever want to do email?” But now, it turns out that crafty grandma was running her own email server – which can permanently delete emails. Head of the House committee investigating the attack on the Benghazi consulate in 2012, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), said Clinton has kept emails from his committee’s investigation. “There are gaps of months of months of months,” he said. “If you think to that iconic picture of her on a C-17 flying to Libya … we have no emails from that day. In fact we have no emails from that trip.” Unlike Lois Lerner’s emails, Clinton’s may be gone for good. As “clueless” as ever, Barack Obama distanced himself from the former secretary of state, trotting out his tired old excuse that he learned about the scandal “through news reports.” Sure thing.
