Emailgate May Be the Final Scandal to Sink Hillary Clinton
The former secretary of state’s use of a personal account to exclusively conduct government business and to protect her political future in violation of the law ought to disqualify her from the presidency.
‘Witch hunts” sometimes find a witch, and those who dismissed the establishment of the House Benghazi Select Committee, chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., as just another witch hunt are eating their words.
The existence of a personal account that Hillary Clinton used to conduct government business as secretary of state was discovered by the committee and reported by the New York Times.
Clinton’s use of this personal account explains why investigations of the Benghazi terrorist attack — and her culpability in our diplomatic mission’s vulnerability there, the failure to heed warnings and the cover-up afterward — failed to find much email evidence of her direct involvement.
According to the Times, Clinton never used her official government email account at all. What’s more, she used exclusively one set up on the day of her Senate confirmation as secretary of state. This indicates premeditation in an attempt to deceive the American people by someone determined to fulfill her ambition to be the first woman to sit in the Oval Office.
The Times said that Clinton’s aides made no attempt to systematically preserve her emails on government servers as required by the Federal Records Act. Team Hillary is now trying to use the excuse that they thought their government recipients would archive the emails and that was thought to be good enough.
