Hillary’s Email Scandal Heats Up

emailLooks like Hillary’s email scandal is on fire. Via The Washington Times:

While media coverage has focused on a half-dozen of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal emails containing sensitive intelligence, the total number of her private emails identified by an ongoing State Department review as having contained classified data has ballooned to 60, officials told The Washington Times.

More details:

Among the first 60 flagged emails, nearly all contained classified secrets at the lowest level of “confidential” and one contained information at the intermediate level of “secret,” officials told the Times.

Those 60 emails do not include two emails identified in recent days by Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III as containing “top-secret” information possibly derived from Pentagon satellites, drones or intercepts, which is some of the nation’s most sensitive secrets.

Remember what Hillary said about her emails just a few months ago? A reminder via The New York Times:

“I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email,” Mrs. Clinton said at a news conference on Tuesday at the United Nations. “I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.”

Can’t imagine why many voters think there’s a trust/honesty gap there. Puzzling, right?

Some questions to think about…

Do you think this spells political disaster for Hillary’s campaign?

How eager do you think Democrats are to toss Joe Biden in the ring?

Could Bernie Sanders actually have a shot?

How important are trust and honesty in electing a President?

Are you confident in Hillary’s ability to explain her way out of this?

Are you confident in the way Republican candidates will handle the matter?

How certain are you that Hillary will get the Democrat nomination?

Hillary is defiantly guilty, but the truth will never come out. What has happened to the legal system, the rich and famous are not subject to the same laws, any one else would have been arrested and all record confiscated and tried for treason, end of story. This whole administration including the Clinton’s of bulling and cover-ups even if found guilty Obama will just pardon her as Bill did to all those guilty of the white water scandal for keeping their mouth shut as to Hillary’s involvement and as a subjective note the one person whom was to testify about Hillary involvement suddenly and mysteriously ends up dead. Although the Clinton’s were the most investigated persons in office (covered-up investigation) they keep smelling like roses.

Hillary is only guilty of bad judgment;

1. In her choice to use a private server because of convenience and
2. Being too measured in releasing all her private server e-mails to the State Department.

Neither is a capital offense. Hillary will survive.

Hillary is straightforward that none of the emails she sent or received on her private server as Secretary of State contained information “marked classified” at the time.

Colin Powell had a private email account his entire tenure as Secretary of State. Did he received e-mails that were not “marked classified” that may be considered classified? His e-mails have been destroyed so we’ll never know.

A year from now all this will be disremembered and the Democrats will still have Hillary as their shoe-in to win the Presidency.

… and a year from now the GOP will still have Trey Gowdy and his never-ending Benghazi Dog and Pony show, their opposition to Obamacare with NO plan of their own, no immigration proposal and Donald Trump.

So BozO, you rear your ugly Progressive head to defend Hillary with “Oh, she didn’t do anything that Colin Powell didn’t already do!” … What crap! … Hillary IS an opportunistic liar at best! … How will she answer when some news commentator asks her about her college thesis on Saul Alinsky, her idol? … Or when she gets asked … ” What’s the difference between a Socialist and a Democrat?” … I’ll answer for her … “There isn’t any!”

Do you really think that anybody, other than another Liberal loon like you, really believes any of your idiotic Progressive idiotology (you like that word?), oh, maybe Tina, on a Conservative organization website? … Hillary AND Bill, they really do, deserve each other … though I’ll never understand what he saw in her, she’s a modern day Witch Hazel at best! … Pretty soon she’ll just fade into irrelevance and become fodder for comics! … What I’ll never understand is why she went into Obama’s Cabinet in the first place. We, conservatives, can thank Obama for making Hillary irrelevant for the Presidency! … He never did like her, and now he helps feed her to the lions! … Just like he planned all along!

Is it too early to bring up Espionage? She used and disseminated secrets from the government for her personal use without permission from the government.
