During investigations into the events that occurred the night a US consulate was sacked in Benghazi, Libya, it was discovered that Hillary Clinton was using a poorly-secured personal e-mail server instead of her professional account for professional correspondence. She did this in direct violation of her own department's policies, for which she had already fired several people. This breach of policy brought the Benghazi investigation to a standstill, as Clinton personally controls access to the e-mail correspondence that would back up or dispute her testimony.
However, the problem here isn't just a matter of policy. It turns out that she sent hundreds of classified documents
through this server, leaving them open to interception by foreign intelligence agencies. This is not only a breach of policy, but of federal law, constituting treason. For a far lesser infraction, decorated General and CIA head David Petraeus was fired and charged with a felony, but took a plea deal that left him with a $100,000 fine on misdemeanor charges.
After years of obstruction by Obama's Department of Justice and Clinton's own legal team, the FBI finally managed to pry the server in question out of Clinton's hands. They found that attempts had been made to wipe the server clean
in direct violation of court orders and federal law. Fortunately, the FBI believes they can recover some of the data
Well, reporters are (finally!) starting to question Clinton about her role in all of this criminal corruption. She must be getting nervous, because she's starting to dodge the questions by cracking bad jokes.
“What? Like with a cloth or something?” she asked, then laughed. “I don’t know how it works digitally at all.” -Actual Hillary Clinton response as to whether she "wiped" her own server
“By the way, you may have seen that I recently launched a Snapchat account. I love it. I love it. Those messages disappear all by themselves.” -Actual Hillary Clinton quote at a recent campaign fundraiser
. Discuss freely, but there are also a couple of specific points I'd like to bring up:
1. Do you think felony charges will end Hillary's campaign? Or will American voters be willing to "overlook" her crimes, just as they've overlooked all the other corruption that has occurred in Obama's administration?
2. Who could possibly replace Hillary for the Democratic nomination? Is avowed socialist Bernie Sanders anywhere near ready to endure that kind of scrutiny?
3. How could anyone in her campaign possibly think it's a good idea for her to crack jokes about her own crimes when trying to run for president? I mean, we knew she was tone-deaf (the quote in my signature speaks volumes to that effect), but this is a whole new level of reckless disregard for the rule of law.
