“The server will remain private”
As Hillary Clinton’s nefarious email saga continues to develop, one line given as her reason for withholding personal communications is shot through with cannon-sized holes by none other than hubby Bill. Hillary’s claim that her private server “contained personal communication between my husband and me,” was exposed as bogus by the Wall Street Journal, revealing the fact that Bill Clinton still doesn’t use email. In fact, according to the article, he has sent a total of two emails in his entire life, the initial one in 1998. As president, Bill Clinton’s first email was a message to John Glenn, as the former senator and astronaut was making a return trip to space.
And speaking of outer space, Hillary, the presumed Democrat presidential candidate did herself no favors as she took the podium, aloofly playing the role of annoyed, elitist matron, while holding a terse press conference Tuesday. She acknowledged using only a private email account while secretary of state and grandly opined that only she is the determiner of what she releases and what she deletes. “The server will remain private,” she flatly declared —- saying she turned over 55,000 emails —- neglecting to admit that she waited two months to do so and never sufficiently answering questions relating to what was contained in those she deleted.
She also said using a private server while in a high level government post was a matter of “convenience.” The physical server was on her private property. Given that the Benghazi disaster, shrouded in lies, occurred on her watch, the issue becomes: Does her “convenience” trump national security?
While snappishly answering questions, Clinton repeated that she “followed every rule,” and “did not email classified material to anyone.” She further claimed, “For any government employee, it is that government employee’s responsibility to determine what’s personal and what’s work-related” —- knowing full well that’s not the case.
“At the end, I chose not to keep my private personal emails. No one wants their personal emails made public, and I think most people understand that and respect that privacy,” asserted the woman who has long desired to be the ultimate and unquestioned authority.
When even the left-of-center Associated Press has filed a lawsuit in D.C. today to force the State Department to release Hillary’s email correspondence and government documents, all indications point to her grandiose goals looking bleaker. The legal action comes after repeated requests filed under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act have gone unfulfilled.
