Hillary Clinton has a well-deserved reputation for dishonesty. One-half of the infamously shady power couple that once inhabited the White House, Hillary is about as trusted as a used car salesman.
Polls continue to show that Americans do not trust her and it makes total sense as to why not. The candidate who remains bereft of any charm or grace has absolutely bungled the efforts to explain her criminal activity and has alternated between asserting that what she did was not illegal to asserting that she had no idea of what was going on.
Rather than offer any coherent explanation, Hillary has only dug herself in deeper as she seems unwilling to settle on a single narrative surrounding her email scandal where she conducted national security business on a private, unsecured email server. After working to purge her server of the evidence of her guilt, she maintained that only personal emails were sent on the account.
When asked for access to her server, Hillary maintained that she could not allow access as the account harbored classified material.
Finally, congressional investigators gained access and discovered a lengthy history of transmitting classified and even top-secret documents over the unsecured server.
Since that time, Hillary’s defense has been both, “I didn’t do that” and “Are we still on this?!”
Over the weekend, Hillary appeared on Meet The Press and asserted to host Chuck Todd that she “did not participate” in the process where emails were designated as “work-related” or “personal.”
According to Hillary, her attorneys did so.
On Friday, Reuters reported that the State Department discovered new work-related emails sent over the private account, including emails with former CIA director David Petraeus, that Hillary had not turned-over to investigators who continue to assert that the former Secretary of State has been fully uncooperative with the investigation.
Okay- so it was the big, bad attorneys who screwed up and placed Hillary in the crosshairs, eh?
However, by her own admission, this is not accurate.
At a tense press conference on August 18th, 2015, Hillary offered one of her various mea culpas to try and move the attention away from her obfuscation. Regarding who made the decisions as to what was and was not “work-related,” Hillary stated, “Under the law, that decision is made by the official. I was the official. I made those decisions.”
The Clintons are furious that Americans have not simply shrugged-off her obvious lies. How can we so long as we continue to get one lie after another?
Here’s what Americans can ascertain: at best, we have a presidential candidate who must admit that she’s too stupid to handle two email accounts (but still wants to be trusted with the nuclear arsenal).
At worst, she’s a traitorous criminal who has left Americans vulnerable by leaving top-secret materials available for America’s enemies.
And, in either case, we can definitely note that she’s too stupid to coherently explain her actions as a function of either one of the aforementioned scenarios.
No matter how one cuts it, Hillary is not right for the job.
