Look at this. Look how that Washington Post handles a news story about a legitimate investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to handle State Department business, a practice for which any employee would have been fired and possibly subject to criminal charges.
The article is all about . . . Trump! And how he is persecuting people for political purposes.
Of course, Democrats never launch investigations for political purposes. They are just seeking justice, the rule of law, etc.
From the piece:
The Trump administration is investigating the email records of dozens of current and former senior State Department officials who sent messages to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email, reviving a politically toxic matter that overshadowed the 2016 election, current and former officials said.
As many as 130 officials have been contacted in recent weeks by State Department investigators — a list that includes senior officials who reported directly to Clinton as well as others in lower-level jobs whose emails were at some point relayed to her inbox, said current and former State Department officials. Those targeted were notified that emails they sent years ago have been retroactively classified and now constitute potential security violations, according to letters reviewed by The Washington Post.
Senior State Department officials said that they are following standard protocol in an investigation that began during the latter days of the Obama administration and is nearing completion . . .
To many of those under scrutiny, including some of the Democratic Party’s top foreign policy experts, the recent flurry of activity surrounding the Clinton email case represents a new front on which the Trump administration could be accused of employing the powers of the executive branch against perceived political adversaries.
Are you kidding me? She’s not a political adversary. She’s not running for anything, at least not yet. This is a completely legitimate and even important probe.
It’s simply impossible to trust the reporting by the Washington Post anymore. They used to at least try to check their bias. Now, it’s all on the table, for their friends inside the Beltway to feast on.
