I sure wouldn’t want to be aboard the Hillary Clinton ship right now, especially after the bombshell revelation that came out about the CIA’s confirmation that “yes, she had emails that were classified as Top Secret”. This second review of the emails that had made their way through Hill’s private server were scrutinized by both the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and they were deemed to be “born” classified at the highest of “top secret” levels. Evidently there were satellite photos of North Korean nuclear sites among other things. If she didn’t realize that this was top secret material she has no business having a security clearance, or better yet running for President of the United States!
So what does this mean? Well, for anyone but a “Clinton”, it would have the person under investigation quaking in their boots. How this will turn out for the “Teflon queen” however, remains to be seen. Even though she is making herself more available to the press (the friendly sort), she is still skirting the issue of having a private server. She continues to just harp on the fact that she had a “private email account” and everyone knew it, therefore she did nothing wrong. Obviously the interviewers have stayed away from the real question of the server because she has no answer. She is counting on the low-information voters to not dig too deeply and just take her word for it.
In the real world, not “Clinton World”, the Democrat Party would have gone to her and strongly suggested that she pull out of the presidential race. They would realize that even at this point in the investigation she is looking at some serious criminal wrongdoing. According to experts, without question she has broken numerous laws just by having classified information on an unsecured server and passing that information back and forth to who knows who. In the real world, she would be toast.
Her team is scrambling to lower the life boats because they know that the ship is sinking. At this point they are bailing water out of the Titanic with a teaspoon because every day more water leaks in faster than they can scoop it out. They are looking at the polls and seeing her drop on a daily basis. Bernie Sanders has over taken her in New Hampshire and is on her heels in Iowa. She now loses in a head to head match-up with Trump, Bush and Rubio in Florida, but the biggest news is that Trump beats her 45% to 40% in the latest national poll. This is not what they expected in “Clinton World”.
Another head-spinning moment hit them when Hillary’s IT guy during her 2008 campaign and the guy who supposedly worked privately for her setting up her server, suddenly clammed up and has had his lawyers state that he will plead the Fifth if requested to testify in front of Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi committee. Bryan Pagliano has made it clear that he doesn’t want to incriminate himself over any testimony that he might give. Hmmm….verrrry interesting, (as they used to say on “Laugh-in”); why would he have anything to hide if he didn’t do anything or know anything illegal? His refusal to talk just causes more intrigue and poses more questions about this whole situation. Did he just set up the server? Or did he maintain it and have access to classified information? Maybe perhaps, he was called a number of months ago when this was all coming down and was told by Hillary to wipe the server clean. He would be the one to know how that is done, and I guarantee you it isn’t with a cloth.
The ridiculous statement from Hillary about how she “urged him to testify” is laughable. I bet he was “urged” alright, probably reminded of what could happen if he crossed the Clinton’s.
So, as we watch this fiasco unfold it is still unclear as to whether or not she can pull this out. Joe Biden is still waiting in the wings but seems reluctant to make a decision, Sanders is unelectable, and no one else seems to want to jump in. As a conservative I would actually relish the idea of her being the candidate because it would be such a train wreck to watch her in the debates trying to skirt the truth, plus it would be justification to see karma catch up with her when she loses.
The only thing I am afraid of though, is that I never underestimate the Clintons. Just when you think you’ve cut the head off the rattlesnake it still bites you.
