Smelling blood in the water, the guppies circle.
Don't set your self up for the inevitable disappointment when it comes to that criminal enterprise known as The Clintons. This scandal will die rapidly. The New York Times chose today to roll the story out for a reason: Netanyahu's showdown with Obama is bigger news that will drown this story out -- and breaking the story now starts the clock on the scandal. By the time the 2016 general election is here, this story will be 1 1/2 years old.
From the New York Times: "Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act."
Thus anyone who had her email address was a crony, including the many people who call themselves journalists. Any one of them could have broken this story in the last five years without much work.
From William Teach:
While this is a big story, as broken by the New York Times, appearing in the Washington Post, Fox News, others, and a big pull at Memeorandum, how many are surprised in the least by this news, and are thinking about it in the same internal voice that says “plain cereal for breakfast? OK”?Nothing will come of this.
Mollie Hemingway also saw the same old pattern: "1996 Called, Wants Its Clinton Fundraising And Document Scandals Back."
Apparently the media "misread" the Benghazi report and is now reporting on it.
Tom Maguire doesn't get it: "This just in -- Hillarity! doesn't think the normal rules apply to her."
They don't, Tom.
Talking Points Memo shifted the story so it looks like Jeb Bush is picking on her because she is a woman: "Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) took a shot at Hillary Clinton early Tuesday over a report that she exclusively used her personal email account to conduct business at the State Department."
The one hope is that the public looks at this scandal and says, you know what? Uh-uh. Not going through this Backwoods Soap Op'ry again by electing another Clinton.
