The IT team for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton used the open source cleaning software BleachBit to wipe systems “so even God couldn’t read them,” according to South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy on Fox News . . . Perhaps Clinton’s team used an open source application because, unlike proprietary applications, it can be audited, like for backdoors. In response to the Edward Snowden leaks in 2013, privacy expert Bruce Schneier advised, “Closed-source software is easier for the NSA to backdoor than open-source software,” in an article in which he stated he also uses BleachBit.
Ah yes, justice denied. Good for business.
Meanwhile, the White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest avoided a question about the appropriateness of the Secretary of State using BleachBit to erase emails that properly belong to the people, claiming he had no idea what anyone was talking about.
Here’s Hillary, trying to turn Donald Trump’s depiction of the grievous problems facing black America into racism. Trump is hateful, she suggests, because he fails to focus on the success stories of African Americans.
I think she is playing this wrong. Sure, there are great success stories. But not nearly enough of them. And black people know who is right and who is wrong here.
She’s pandering. I don’t think it will work. At least it won’t work with everyone, and those are the African Americans who may give Trump and the Republicans a chance.
Now it can be revealed: A team of investigative journalists at the Washington Free Beaconwith time on their hands reveal the truth about Clinton’s “test of strength” demonstration in which she opened of a jar of pickles on the Jimmy Kimmel Show.
With the focus on President Obama’s late arrival on the scene, the media have forgotten that Hillary Clinton never bothered to go to Louisiana at all.
It’s far easier for the media to go after an outgoing president than the women most hope will replace him. Definitely don’t want to tarnish her.
What’s more, she is out in California taking money from Hollywood celebrities while not even bothering to stop by the scene of any of the massive, destructive fires that consumed sections of that state.
Below, Ellen Ratner, who is not a conservative, notes that Clinton has been on a fundraising tour for herself while not bothering to commit any funds to Louisiana. Donald Trump gave money to the victims, funds he presumably could have allocated to his campaign.
Donald Trump’s promise Tuesday to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Clinton Foundation makes one thing clear: Hillary Clinton may be going either to the White House or the Big House.
Trump is suggesting that he will take charges of criminal wrongdoing by Clinton very seriously, unlike, of course, the Obama administration.
It’s not just the Clinton Foundation and possible influence peddling at the State Department that is ripe for investigation. Trump can easily revisit FBI Director Comey’s decision not to prosecute Clinton over her mishandling of classified information by using a private email server. Her attempts to cover her tracks could prompt charges of a coverup and obstruction of justice.
And congressional Republicans are already looking into whether she committed perjury before Congress. Obviously, she lied to Congress. Whether it ranks as “perjury” is surely something a Trump attorney general could look into.
And that attorney general may well be Chris Christie, a political animal who would have few qualms about going after Clinton.
Meantime, senior Clinton aides who had frequent contact with the Clinton Foundation while they worked at the State Department could also face prosecution under Trump.
On the downside, I’d note, we could start to look like a Banana Republic. Politicians prosecuting their political opponents is not something that normally happens in America.
But Hillary Clinton is not something that normally happens in America. Her potential crimes are so rampant and egregious, we may have little choice but to indict her if we want to uphold the principle that nobody is above the law.
It appears that now it’s starting here. A man who randomly stabbed two Virginia residents was apparently shouting “Allahu Akbar” as he tried to kill them. He has been on the FBI’s radar for some time and tried to go to Syria, apparently not for a vacation. The consequences of the policies of President Obama and… Continue Reading
A federal judge has ordered the State Department to release some 14,900 emails that the FBI found. Last night on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, Hillary had some fun with. “We’ve already released, I don’t know, 30,000 plus, what’s a few more?” Thousands of these, according to FBI Director Comey, were work-related. Clinton had claimed to have… Continue Reading
Turns out the Clinton Foundation donors were very much in the atmosphere, and truly stinking up the place. From Clinton’s Secretary of State confirmation hearing in 2009. In case you are still thinking the woman isn’t completely full of it, here’s some more from her confirmation hearing. I mean, there is simply nothing she says… Continue Reading
Bill Clinton, though sounding increasingly frail, still has undiminished ability to try to con the American people. Here are his comments trying to explain away Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and put words in FBI Director Comey’s mouth, cleverly juxtaposed by the Washington Free Beacon with the actual statements by Comey. Continue Reading
According to USA Today: A House panel will probe FBI officials next month over whether Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton perjured herself in testimony to Congress last year about her use of private email servers while she was secretary of state. Republican committee members plan to bring up the perjury issue at a House Judiciary… Continue Reading
