|About damn time Washington Post.|
That of course is ridiculous, and yet the media continuously feels the need to appear non-partisan by suggesting that Hillary's choice to use a private server is on par with Donald Trump essentially being Vladimir Putin's butt-boy and a candidate so prone to exaggeration and out right lying that he is driving fact checkers to the point of exhaustion.
Here are the things that happened this week which the editorial board believes makes any further talk of Hillary Clinton's e-mail server unnecessary:
In fact, Ms. Clinton’s emails have endured much more scrutiny than an ordinary person’s would have, and the criminal case against her was so thin that charging her would have been to treat her very differently. Ironically, even as the email issue consumed so much precious airtime, several pieces of news reported Wednesday should have taken some steam out of the story. First is a memo FBI Director James B. Comey sent to his staff explaining that the decision not to recommend charging Ms. Clinton was “not a cliff-hanger” and that people “chest-beating” and second-guessing the FBI do not know what they are talking about. Anyone who claims that Ms. Clinton should be in prison accuses, without evidence, the FBI of corruption or flagrant incompetence.
Second is the emergence of an email exchange between Ms. Clinton and former secretary of state Colin Powell in which he explained that he used a private computer and bypassed State Department servers while he ran the agency, even when communicating with foreign leaders and top officials. Mr. Powell attempted last month to distance himself from Ms. Clinton’s practices, which is one of the many factors that made the email story look worse. Now, it seems, Mr. Powell engaged in similar behavior.
Last is a finding that 30 Benghazi-related emails that were recovered during the FBI email investigation and recently attracted big headlines had nothing significant in them. Only one, in fact, was previously undisclosed, and it contained nothing but a compliment from a diplomat. But the damage of the “30 deleted Benghazi emails” story has already been done.
The Post suggests that Clinton deserves some of the blame for being careless, but that it does not rise to the level of illegality, and should not have any impact on her campaign.
The Post then wraps it up with this:
Imagine how history would judge today’s Americans if, looking back at this election, the record showed that voters empowered a dangerous man because of . . . a minor email scandal. There is no equivalence between Ms. Clinton’s wrongs and Mr. Trump’s manifest unfitness for office.
I am hoping that most of the other mainstream media outlets follow the Post's lead and step away from this story leaving it to the Right Wing nutjobs like Alex Jones and Matt Drudge which is where it has always belonged in the first place.
There are still some things that Hillary Clinton can legitimately be criticized for, but none of them suggest that she is a criminal, a traitor, or even a murderer.
So if these are the things that you still believe about her, and feel you need to tell others, then congratulations you are officially a Right Wing troll.
