I’m surprised it took us this long to get here, but we’ve reached the “Blame Bush” part of Hillary’s e-mail scandal (see Hillary Clinton: ‘Everybody’s Fault But Mine!’ and Hillary Stumbles. Tries to Deny FBI Director’s Admission of Guilt: ‘That’s not what I heard’…). Well, not “Blame Bush” as much as blame Colin Powell.
You know, the Secretary of State under George Bush.
To drive the point home, the panel put up a graphic to show the distinct differences between Powell’s email practices at the State Department and Clinton’s, and it read the following:
Never used a private server
At the time he became secretary in 2001, the State Department didn’t have a comparable unclassified system
Used personal emails only for unclassified information
Used an office desktop of all classified communications
Scarborough cited that Powell spoke to People about this issue, telling the magazine that Clinton had been trying to pin the personal server scandal on him. He also said that she had been using her server for over a year before Powell sent the memo about his personal email use.
Side note, how bitterly partisan do you have to be to blame Colin “Endorsed Obama Twice” Powell, literally the most moderate ‘Republican’ in the country? Seriously, Hillary couldn’t find someone from the Liberty Caucus, or even Trey Gowdy’s mother? I guess this is par for the course.
… Just the Clintons trying to put another black man behind bars.
Could be worse. At least she didn’t try to have him whacked.
With Hillary Clinton, none of this is surprising anymore: the rules don’t apply to her/it’s everyone’s fault but hers/“like anyone in the press would support Trump, I’m all you people have.” And isn’t this just emblematic of today’s Democratic party? Absolve yourself of responsibility, pass the buck, and then make someone else clean up your mess. Did I just describe Clinton’s email scandal or The Affordable Care Act?
The silliest thing in all of this if Hillary would have just admitted to this in the beginning, there’d likely be no controversy and she’d still be winning. Instead, she keeps lying and lying and lying, just because “F*** you, I’m Hillary Clinton!”
