"Wading through the daily deluge of Hillary Clinton news, I feel like I'm reading the police blotter."...Michael Goodwin, NY Post
In the last month, Hillary Clinton played the role of a groundhog sleeping and hibernating in her underground burrow. That finally ended yesterday when she actually took 6 questions (most likely all pre-screened) from the "public." (Recall, the last time she took questions from the "public," it was reported most of that public were Democrat insiders).
Nevertheless, Hillary did see her shadow---a shadow shading some new scandals even as some in the media shed sunlight on the lies, deceit and corruption.
Judicial Watch reported that the Obama Administration knew that al-Qaeda terrorist planned the attack in Benghazi 10 days in advance of that attack. So much for the administration's proclamations that it was the result of a video. In fact, the intention of the attack was in revenge for the U.S. killing of an Islamist terrorist thug in a drone attack. Judicial Watch received these previously classified secret documents from the Department of Defense. More disturbingly, it's obvious now the administration covered-up the real reason for the attack. In addition, the documents also pointed out the connection the "collapse in Libya and the ISIS war---and confirm the U.S. knew remarkable details about the transfer of arms from Benghazi to Syrian jihadists."
If that news wasn't enough for the groundhog and her minions, the New York Times revealed that Clinton had another email account (as I pointed out in my previous post she had claimed she only used one email account as well as only using one electronic devise. She actually used several different devices). This email account was to communicate with Sidney Blumenthal, the former senior adviser to Bill Clinton. He was a well-known hitman for the Clintons relentlessly going after their political enemies.
Then the Politico reported earlier this week that a federal judge ordered the State Department to start releasing her emails during the period she served as Secretary of State. Keep in mind. prior to this court order, Clinton and her staff already deleted thousands of her emails.
So Clinton finally made her appearance yesterday strutting like a 300 pound groundhog on a Hollywood red carpet. Like most dull celebrities, she only took a handful of questions for a whopping five minutes. Or as Michael Goodwin pointed out: "She said about as close to nothing as humanly possible." That, my friends, is the Democrat representative running for president: a groundhog in an empty pants suit.
