With the media’s obsession over GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump and his politically incorrect — perhaps even fatal, as many hope — comments about Muslim immigration, you might have nearly forgotten there’s also a Democrat race for the presidential nomination underway.Granted, the Democrat race isn’t nearly as dynamic as the GOP race, given that Hillary Clinton has already been all-but-annointed. And, of course, the lamestream media is doing everything it can to make sure it stays that way. Which is why you likely haven’t heard much about these three recent revelations about presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.
Via the Washington Free Beacon:Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, hasn’t gotten a lot of attention lately, that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been making news. Here are few Hillary headlines you might have missed during the media’s most recent Trumpgasm.
Senate investigators have asked the State Department for backup copies of emails sent by Bryan Magliano, the guy Hillary hired to maintain her secret email server, and has since pled the Fifth in response to the ongoing federal investigations. The State Department, however, just told those investigator that they couldn’t find any copies of those emails. The FBI, which has taken possession of Pagliano’s government computer, might have better luck.
Yep, just another day of stonewalling in the investigation into potential violations of our national security under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along…2.
Just another run-of-the-mill story about nepotism/corruption involving Hillary Clinton and Goldman Sachs, her favorite Wall Street bank:
As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton intervened in a request forwarded by her son-in-law on behalf of a deep-sea mining firm to meet with her or other State Department officials, according to the recently released Clinton emails.One of the firm’s investors had asked Clinton’s son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky, who is married to Chelsea Clinton, for help setting up such contacts, the emails show.
Mezvinsky passed along the request on behalf of his former employer, Goldman Sachs, which was representing the mining firm Neptune in its effort to lobby for Senate approval of the Law of the Seas Treaty. Clinton forwarded the email to her aide Tom Nides, a former (and current) Morgan Stanley executive. The Clinton campaign refused to respond to multiple requests for comment from the Associated Press. A watchdog group has asked the U.S. Office of Government Ethics to investigate.
And here, ask not what you can do for your country — ask instead how you can use your high-level position in government to benefit you and yours. The Clinton royalty at its finest.
Hillary Clinton has repeatedly insisted that she never (sent or) received information on her private email server that was classified (at the time). The intelligence community rejects that assessment, which Hillary has dismissed as a “disagreement” between government agencies. Fox News reports on a new development that undermines Hillary’s case:
An intelligence community review has re-affirmed that two classified emails were indeed “top secret” when they hit Hillary Clinton’s unsecured personal server despite a challenge to that designation by the State Department, according to two sources familiar with the review.
The sources described the dispute over whether the two emails were classified at the highest level as a “settled matter.”
And this, another case of “if we just say the lie long enough, that’ll make the lie true.” It’s the strategy that makes a Hillary Clinton presidential nomination even possible — not to mention highly likely — at this point.
That, along with a media complicit in shepherding the Queen all the way to the Democrat nomination — and, they hope, the White House. Of course, we all know that if any Republican had even a fraction of this baggage, he or she would be crucified by the media. Even any other Democrat candidate would be making headlines with this type of stuff.
So when it comes to the heavy duty baggage Hillary Clinton comes with, the best strategy may be to distract and deflect — if not just plain hide. And perhaps that’s also why the next Democrat debate is happening again on a Saturday night — during an NFL game, no less.
Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
