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.
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.
ll but four of Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 emails were copied, likely secretly, to a Gmail address called CarterHeavyIndustries@gmail.com, according to a new Senate report.
The FBI says that the account was linked to Paul Combetta, an IT aide Clinton hired who used BleachBit to destroy emails after they were subpoenaed and misled FBI agents.
Combetta said he sent all of her emails to the Gmail account as part of trying to copy them to a new server. Combetta was copying Clinton’s emails off of an old laptop that he was supposed send back in the mail, but there’s no evidence he returned it, according to the Department of Justice Inspector General.
When an intel agent discovered the copying to a third-party account, he said Peter Strzok seemed uninterested. The intel agency feared the email account could be a link to a foreign power, but the FBI refused to explain it to them
President Trump on Wednesday mocked Hillary Clinton for saying the 2016 election was “stolen” from her, rather than acknowledge her failure to campaign in the Midwestern state of Wisconsin.
The president adopted a vacuous facial expression to mimic Clinton. “Hillary Clinton is still going up, ‘Ahhh, I think they stole the election,'”Trump said at a campaign rally in Panama City, Fla. “But no, she lost. She lost,” he said. “The next time she’s gotta go to Wisconsin to campaign.”
Trump paused to allow the crowd to chant “lock her up!” before complimenting the relative savvy of former President Bill Clinton, whose advice to tend to the Midwest was reportedly rebuffed by a millennial adviser to his wife.
The press has been beside itself that President Trump allegedly tried to influence an investigation of his former National Security advisor, Michael Flynn, by casually asking then-FBI Director James Comey if there might be a way to go easy on him.
Obviously, Flynn got hammered anyway.
Now we have evidence that the Obama Justice Department actually ordered the FBI to back away from charging Hillary Clinton as she ran to replace her friend Barack Obama as president. And of course, no charges were filed.
An internal chart prepared by federal investigators working on the so-called “Midyear Exam” probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails, exclusively reviewed by Fox News, contained the words “NOTE: DOJ not willing to charge this” next to a key statute on the mishandling of classified information. The notation appeared to contradict former FBI Director James Comey’s repeated claims that his team made its decision that Clinton should not face criminal charges independently.
Fox News has confirmed the chart served as a critical tip that provided the basis for Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe’s explosive questioning of former FBI lawyer Lisa Page last year, in which Page agreed with Ratcliffe’s characterization that the DOJ had told the FBI that “you’re not going to charge gross negligence.” A transcript of Page’s remarks was published Tuesday as part of a major document release by the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Georgia Rep. Doug Collins.
Tuesday, I wrote that the press was gobbling up misinformation when it accepted Hillary’s statement “I am not running” as also meaning, as she intended it to seem, that she “WILL not run.”
The Clintons, I noted, are both lawyers and liars, so you have to watch their careful language carefully. To me, it was obvious that she wasn’t ruling out that she might run in the future.
Well it looks like Clinton has recalculated and decided her deception might not be helpful to her. Because later in the day, we had this.
Hillary Clinton has nothing to lose, and nothing to do. And being president is what she always always wanted! Bill first, than Hillary. She ain’t ruling anything out until, I don’t know . . . after Election Day!
Soon, it will be Chelsea’s turn. We may one day live in a world where Clintons are not running for president. But not in our lifetimes, or possibly our children’s.
Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, who replaced fired former AG Jeff Sessions Thursday, has written that Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted for her crimes. The most recent ones, I’m talking about. Whitaker wrote the following in a July 2016 response to former FBI Director James Comey’s contention that “no reasonable prosecutor” would prosecute Hillary, his… Continue Reading
Hillary Clinton says she’d still like to be president and suggested a decision about whether she will run will be made after the November nidterm elections.

Honestly. People talked about moving to Canada if President Trump were elected. Of course, they all stayed and are now enjoying the benefit of his fantastic economy. But if Hillary Clinton ran again, I might have to move to Canada. And not just Canada. I’m talking Saskatchewan. Forget that she’d ruin the country. I just… Continue Reading
You almost have to feel sorry for Hillary Clinton. Not only did she lose two presidential elections she was supposed to win, but she’s now on the wrong side of the #MeToo movement, and even her place as a pioneer for women in politics is in jeopardy. That’s because her husband is a serial abuser… Continue Reading
