Hillary Clinton blames everyone else for her email problems while Donald Trump provides her cover
This weekend Hillary Clinton made a gaffe which would have been the big news today had not Donald Trump, with his continued attack on the Khan family, provided her with cover when she appeared on Fox News Sunday and lied once again to the American people about not receiving classified information on her unsecured personal email server even though James Comey stated that she did.
Here is more:
On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” when confronted with video of FBI director James Comey saying during her tenure as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did send classified information over her private unsecured email server, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said the emails in question were classified “retroactively.”
Clinton said, “That’s not what I heard director Comey say, and I thank you for giving me the opportunity in my view clarify. Director Comey said my answers were truthful, and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people, that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the e-mails. I was communicating with over 300 people in my e-mailing. They certainly did not believe and no reason to believe that what they were sending was classified. In retrospect, different agencies come in and say, well, it should have been, but that’s not what was happening in real time.”
That is in direct contradiction to what James Comey testified to in front of the Congress while under oath when he stated that the former Secretary of State did in fact receive emails which were classified at the time of their transmission. However that is not what I want to focus on because at this point in time even Hillary Clinton supporters know she is lying about this, they just do not care.
I want to focus on this little tidbit where she claimed the responsibility for not properly classifying the emails falls on the 300 people she was in contact with. Here is more on that:
I take classification seriously. I relied on and had every reason to rely on the judgments of the professionals with whom I worked. And so in retrospect, maybe some people are saying, well, among those 300 people they made the wrong call. There was no reason in my view to doubt the professionalism and the determination by the people who work every single day on behave of our country.”
So you see? It is not her fault the emails were not properly classified because she relied on the “professionalism” of others to properly classify the emails. But the bottom line is she, as head of the State Department, was supposed to understand which emails were born classified even if they were not marked as such and she failed one of her greatest responsibilities.
Luckily for the former Secretary of State nobody today is talking about her disastrous and dishonest interview because Donald Trump grabbed the headlines with an attack on a gold star family which will do nothing for his campaign instead of focusing on Hillary Clinton.
But was it luck or simply Donald Trump’s stupidity or is there more to this? I have believed from the beginning that Donald Trump was a Trojan Horse whose goal it was to ensure Hillary Clinton won the election and now I am more convinced than ever. Donald Trump can gain nothing from this attack on the Khan family and I believe he is smart enough to realize this. So why did he do it instead of attacking Hillary Clinton for obviously lying during this interview when that would have been much more politically expedient? Could it be that he is a Hegelian Dialectic change agent?
Donald Trump supporters will point out the difference between the way the mainstream media is covering Pat Smith’s convention speech and Khizr Kahn’s convention speech, and they are right, however the billionaire businessman had to have known this would be the case and he decided to put the focus on himself while taking it away from Hillary Clinton and I do not think this was a mistake…
