Email Scandal Deepens While Hillary Clinton Laughs

This news contradicts thee of Clinton’s lies

On Friday, the State Department announced that it handed over 900 emails to the House Select Committee that Hillary Clinton had sent and received regarding Libya and Benghazi. Last December, the Department of Defense discovered email conversations between then-Gen. David Petraeus and Clinton dating back to Jan. 2009. The Pentagon handed the documents over to State and the revelation was reported Friday. This news contradicts three of Clinton’s lies: First, that she is fully cooperating with the investigation. Second, she previously claimed she operated her homebrew server from March 2009 onward. And third, that she only deleted emails that were private in nature. Just last week, Clinton said, “When I did it, it was allowed, it was above board. And now I’m being as transparent as possible, more than anybody else ever has been.” As the revelations have grown more damning, Clinton has become more dismissive — one of the only rhetorical tricks she has left. Last week, she joked, “You can count on me not to have a private email server,” in response to a question about how transparent her administration will be if she attains the White House. When Chuck Todd of “Meet the Press” grilled Clinton Sunday on her email use, Clinton replied, “Another conspiracy theory?! Ha ha ha ha.” It’s no laughing matter, though, Clinton’s dishonesty is on display, and the fact that she’s continuing to be dishonest indicates that this scandal may hide a larger one that may have hurt the nation.
