O.K., here’s the situation: Yesterday the FBI released severely redacted transcripts of some interviews they had with Hillary Clinton back in July. The interviews were all about the classified e-mails sent from her personal server. So, this was not about the Clinton foundation, or about vote rigging, those are other investigations. Nor was it about the deaths of John Ashe, Seth Rich, and Shawn Lucas. She’ll probably just get away with those.
But, as far as the classified material goes, well, wow. She claimed she didn’t know (C) stood for classified, said she thought it had something to do with alphabetical order. The argument, as seen in this article, seems to be over whether she’s dishonest, or merely stupid.
I hate this argument. We always argue that the caught party must be either really dumb or really dishonest, and we can’t win, because they will just play dumb long enough to stay out of jail, and then when we say, “Geez, you’re too dumb to be in office,then,” they will say “but I haven’t been convicted of anything illegal”and refuse to drop out of the race. Nixon used to pull that shit all the time.
Well, I’m not buying it. That whole dumb or dishonest thing is a distraction, a time buying ploy. We know damn well that Hillary’s not stupid. Class valedictorian, all that, that’s genuine. That’s not our objection to her.
She IS, and the FBI must know this, having conducted these interviews, as crooked as the day is long, as corrupt as rotten meat, and every bit as self-serving as her not-so-esteemed opponent.
She knew damned well those documents were classified. Because she is not stupid.
