Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

The BIG lie: “What these notes demonstrate is … why the FBI chose not to go forward with any additional proceeding. [Clinton] did make a mistake, and she made it by deciding she wanted to use one device rather than multiple devices.” —Tim Kaine (“[T]he FBI released files from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server on Friday, and among the findings was there were 13 different mobile devices associated with Clinton’s two numbers that could have been used to send and receive emails on her system.” —Washington Free Beacon)

Blame shifting: “There were emails that contained classified information that had been improperly marked. So when [Clinton] received the email, the material that was classified — which is supposed to be flagged and identified as classified — in many instances was improperly labeled.” —Tim Kaine (Wrong again — much of it was marked, and besides, she had the authority to decide classification.)

For the record: “What’s evident from all of the revelations over the last several weeks is that Hillary Clinton operated in such a way to keep her emails, and particularly her interactions while secretary of state, with the Clinton Foundation out of the public reach, out of public accountability. I think it all truly does disqualify her from serving as president of the United States. … [Hillary Clinton is] the most dishonest candidate for president of the United States since Richard Nixon.” —Mike Pence

And last… “The FBI documents should be seen as a preview of how Mrs. Clinton would govern as President, with the same get-away-with-anything entitlement that always follows the Clintons. She’s lucky she’s running for President because anyone else would have been indicted.” —The Wall Street Journal
