So, the new story is that Hillary Clinton used a personal email account to send messages when she was Secretary of State. She should have used her .gov email for archival purposes. Or maybe there’s another super secret State email system that we’re not privy to.
I have no idea what she was thinking but I very much doubt that she used a personal email account for four years and the president didn’t know about it. We might see him do the “I’m shocked, SHOCKED that anyone would violate official records protocol around here!” act but I would be tempted to not believe him.
One thing I do know for sure. A woman who has been investigated to death as Hillary Clinton has been would know better than to use an unofficial email system without some kind of official permission. Otherwise, it’s just feeding fuel to the Bengazidads and agent-provacateurs-posing-as-knit-your-own-sandals-type-peacenik-lefties.
Wouldn’t you know it, the top comments on the NYTimes piece are full of the word “entitled”. That must be a focus group tested word that is known to drive Democrats completely over the edge. Amiright? What would Jane Caro say about the fact that the most accomplished woman in the world still has to battle with the “you’re not worthy because you feel entitled” crowd on her own side? I suspect that her response would start with the word “F^&*”.
And how do we know about the unofficial email address? The State Department has been giving copies of email to the committee investigating the Benghazi…thing. They’ve given 300 emails so far. Wow, one might almost suspect that Hillary’s email could be used as a fishing expedition to find all kinds of things that the Republicans didn’t like, not that that’s a good reason to violate official protocol or anything.
Anyway, it’s not my job to defend Hillary. That’s her job and she usually does it very well. But let’s just say that this scoop doesn’t seem all that chewy and delicious yet. It’s not like her to leave a hole this wide to drive a campaign ending truck through. She tends to be more prepared than that.
