I really don’t understand how anyone of sane mind can look at this Hillary email situation and not see a shady mess. Via Fox News [emphasis mine]:
A reported two-month gap in emails from Hillary Clinton’s private account during 2012 coincides with a period of escalating violence in Libya and the obtaining of a special exemption by her top aide, Huma Abedin, to work for both the State Department and the Clinton Foundation.
The Daily Beast reported late Tuesday that no emails between Clinton and her State Department staff for the months of May and June 2012 are among the estimated 2,000 messages that have been released from the Democratic presidential frontrunner’s account.
A State Department spokesman told The Daily Beast that only emails related to the security of U.S. diplomats in Libya or the consulate in Benghazi were turned over to the House select committee investigating the deadly Sept. 11, 2012 attack. If true, that means neither Clinton nor her staff communicated via e-mail during a period that saw three attacks on international outposts in Benghazi, including one on the consulate itself.
Does that make logical sense to you? No, really. I want to meet the person who can honestly say that it would make sense that “neither Clinton nor her staff communicated via e-mail during a period that saw three attacks on international outposts in Benghazi, including one on the consulate itself.”
The question on this remains whether or not voters care enough about this obvious lack of transparency. Perhaps Hillary thinks she can get away with it. Is she right?
As far as I’m concerned, it’s long overdue for you to hand over your server, Hillary. And if you have nothing to hide and care deeply about political transparency, it really shouldn’t be such a big problem.
