Hillary's protégé Huma Abedin came to work in the White House in 1996 as a junior intern assigned to the first lady. She has been connected with Hillary Clinton — and her political career — ever since. She appears to have been a good student in the ways of playing fast and loose with the rules.
If Hillary Clinton had worked half as hard to protect the data on her e-mail server as she has worked to protect herself from the fallout for not protecting the server, she could still be the Democrat Party's assumptive nominee for president. And she wouldn't be the subject of an "extremely serious" investigation conducted by an FBI "A-team."
After the Charleston church massacre, a war was launched against the Confederate flag. With a rainbow flag having been found in the WDBJ shooter's apartment, should it also now be banned?
Hillary Clinton has a rare gift for dodging blame even when she "take[s] responsibility." Dogged by accusations that she both sent and received classified intelligence via her private e-mail server, the former secretary of state has run the gamut from denial to flippant sarcasm to a slippery non-admission that is so vague it would make Bill proud.
"I never sent or received any e-mail that was deemed classified, that was marked classified." Hillary Clinton has repeated that claim in several different ways since the beginning of the scandal that may put her in jail and will at least almost certainly dash her hopes of ever re-occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. While the evidence to the contrary begins to stack up, she just repeats the denial.
While she may still have friends in the State Department sticking with her, it appears that the list of powerful people willing to help her out of her latest scandal is fairly thin. In fact, State Department officials may not be as interested in helping their former boss as they are in covering their own hides.
Hillary Clinton has a long list of titles: former attorney, former first lady, former New York senator, and former secretary of state. Considering the severity of her e-mail scandal, she may soon add another title to that list: former candidate for the Democratic nomination. As the facts continue to come out, her problems are looking increasingly serious. And — her protestations to the contrary notwithstanding — she seems to know it.
Even if Hillary Clinton escapes legal trouble, the e-mail scandal is likely to cause her serious problems with her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Thanks to the mainstream media, the "goodness" of Julian Bond during his life is being written; thanks to the Internet, that characterization is being successfully challenged. by Bob Adelmann
