National Journal’s Ron Fournier writes a devastating takedown of Hillary Clinton regarding her emails and various other lies. “I don’t believe Hillary Rodham Clinton when she says — as she did at a brief news conference on Tuesday — that she has no control over the release of her State Department email. ‘They’re not mine. They belong to the State Department.’ I don’t believe her because a person’s actions are more revealing than words: She kept her government email on a secret server and, only under pressure from Congress, returned less than half of them to the State Department. She deleted the rest. She considered them hers. I don’t believe her when she says, ‘I want those emails out. Nobody has a bigger interest in those being released than I do.’ I don’t believe her because I’ve covered the Clintons since the 1980s and know how dedicated they are to what former Clinton spokesman Mike McCurry called ‘telling the truth slowly.’ The fact is that she would rather delay the document dump until early 2016 — and then have the email released on a single day to overwhelm the media and allow her to declare herself exonerated. That was her strategic choice, Clinton advisers confirmed for me, until a federal judge ordered the State Department on Tuesday to release the email in stages.” Fournier is on her side of the aisle, too, which makes his critique even more stark.
