Here's an opinion piece on the e-mail fracas I thought was pretty good.

Here's an opinion piece on the e-mail fracas I thought was pretty good.

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2016/03/hillary-clintons-destruction-emails-federal-crime.html

Quote from: Eric Zuesse
yet its outcome if she becomes President might be far more harmful to the nation than any lapse of state-security from unsecured private possession of top-secret information would be, or might have been.

So: on the face of it, what Secretary Clinton did was evidence-tampering and thus a federal crime, but to expect it to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, or even at all, would seem to be unlikely.

A little late to the party with this, he is:

Flashback: Rove Erases 22 Million White House Emails on Private Server at Height of U.S. Attorney Scandal – Media Yawns

...it’s clear that the only thing Republicans do very well is inflame the media with bogus scandals — which is a handy way to distract attention from their ineptitude. They are doing this with their usual aplomb, and considerable success, in the matter of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to send emails.

Clinton has said she deleted about 50,000 emails that dealt with personal matters, citing her daughter’s wedding and her mother’s funeral as examples.


Guy does a really good job of providing a brief refresher on the White House email scandal.. And demonstrating Zuesse's final point:

It might be, in the American system, permissible crime.

Never forget citizen, there are two tiers of justice: one for you, and one which you don't need to know about.

It has been awhile, so I have forgotten, how long was Rove Secretary of State? Or maybe he held some other Cabinet level position I have since forgotten? When holding an executive position in the trust of the President and American people really demands good record keeping, I'm not sure how non executive types figure into the equation?

Vintage MKing pecksniffery. Confusion and subject changing to sow confusion, with the net effect of raising a sour odor over the proceedings.

Thanks for being so reliable.

Highly qualified women authors and activists are calling her out as John McCain in a pantsuit.

I was privileged to meet Medea Benjamin (and Col. Ann Wright) when they came to speak in SE Virginia during the heyday of Occupy. They spoke to us on drone warfare, and gave us a preview of what is now a full-length feature horror film. Righteous, ethical people.

"John McCain in a pantsuit" is too kind for HRC, a bloodthirsty neocon class traitor. Here's the smoking fucking gun:

Quote from: Medea Benjamin, quoting Robert Fucking Kagan:
“I feel comfortable with her on foreign policy,” Robert Kagan, a co-founder of the neoconservative Project for the New American Century, told the New York Times. “If she pursues a policy which we think she will pursue,” he said, “it’s something that might have been called neocon, but clearly her supporters are not going to call it that; they are going to call it something else.”

Neocon is what is is. The work of Satan.

Another take on the Hillary email investigation. She doesn't need to worry. Obama will issue her a pardon-in-advance.
