Hillary’s email debacle has more legs than a mutant octopus. And every single one of those legs is diseased. Think I’m exaggerating? Nope, not even a little bit. As our readers know, we’ve covered this latest unprecedented Clinton issue here, here, here, and here. On each occasion, the concerns about security have been raised. No matter how Team Hillary tries to spin this, her home-grown system’s insecurity is indeed a national security issue.
At one of the most awkward press conferences ever, she informed us that she took the “unprecedented” step of turning over 55,000 emails to the State Department for review. Meanwhile another 30,000 emails were deemed private by her Highness. Yesterday, Time’s David von Drehle shows us “The Clinton Way”:
The Clintons play by their own set of rules. And in this case, the former Secretary of State explained, those rules bless her decision to erase some 30,000 emails from the family server despite knowing that the emails had become a subject of intense interest to congressional investigators. These were merely “private personal emails,” Clinton averred, “emails about planning Chelsea’s wedding or my mother’s funeral arrangements, condolence notes to friends as well as yoga routines, family vacations, the other things you typically find in inboxes.” After she finished taking questions, Clinton’s staff disclosed that no one actually read through those 30,000-odd documents before she “chose not to keep” them.
