Yeah, we should also allow politicians to do our thinking and let the government to ‘protect us’… right? Does Dianne really believe Americans are that naive?
It seems that the left and right appear to be talking about two entirely different things concerning Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
The left asserts that Hillary made some “oopsies” when she repeatedly transmitted thousands of classified and top-secret documents over a private email account on an unsecured server- a private email account that was strictly forbidden by her State Department contract outlining the imperativeness of conducting State Department business over their secured email accounts.
The right (and those with even a shred of commonsense) understand the situation differently; Clinton’s emails were not a slight breach of some obscure protocol. They were, in fact, repeated violations that are criminal if not treasonous.
That’s the problem. If Clinton sent a funny email joke to a friend, nobody cares about that. What we all should care about, however, are the over two thousand classified and top-secret documents left lingering in cyberspace where any Chinese hacker could have snagged them.
Still, despite the fact that Clinton violated her agreement with the State Department, despite the fact that she endangered American lives, despite the fact that she has continuously lied about her dealings with the unsecured server, despite the fact that she has obstructed inquiries and destroyed evidence, the myth persists that Clinton merely maintained an email account for sending E-vites and various other bits of correspondence.
“Oh wait a second, I don’t believe she was trying to hide anything. I’ve known Hillary for a quarter of a century. Let me tell you what I do think. I think this is a woman who wants a little bit of a private life. She wants to be able to communicate with husband, with daughter, with friends, and not have somebody looking over her shoulder into her e-mails. Having said that, it is what it is. And you know, I don’t think we should make a federal case over it.”
