The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) at the State Department recently released a scathing report of Hillary Clinton’s handling of official emails while Secretary of State. I did not expect it. This Inspector General seems to have some integrity.
In typical Clinton fashion Hillary sent out one of her goons to attack and discredit the Inspector General’s office. Her spokesperson, Brian Fallon said on CNN that “there were hints of an anti-Clinton bias inside that office.” How the Inspector General, a Democrat appointee is part of the “vast right-wing conspiracy” I will leave it to team Hillary to explain.
Hillary’s most recent response to all the negative publicity has been to say that she merely handled her emails the same way her predecessors at State, Colin Powell and Condi Rice did. This is a bold-faced lie. Neither Powell, nor Rice routed any of their official emails through a private server set up for that purpose at their place of residence. This lie shows Hillary’s contempt for the intelligence of the American people.
Well known Democrat pundit and former pollster for the Clintons, Doug Schoen just published a piece in the Wall Street Journal saying Hillary may lose her party’s nomination for President due to all of her problems. I would rather he say what needs to be said, especially by Democrats: Hillary should not be the Democrat nominee.
But maybe I should be careful what I wish for. Maybe it’s a good thing if corrupt Hillary is Donald Trump’s competition for the White House. She just might lose.
Disclosure: I have a bumper sticker that says “Fred Bastiat for President.”
P. S. I also have another bumper sticker – it shows a picture of Hillary alongside a quote from Aesop, the famous ancient author of fables. He said:
“We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.”
I hope this election proves that their are exceptions to Aesop’s observation.
Note: Inspector Generals are appointed for the purpose of having independent oversight to root out waste, fraud and the abuse of taxpayers by federal agencies. The fact that President Obama took 1,989 days to nominate an IG to the State Department is proof for sure: uncovering and preventing waste, fraud and abuse in government is not one of President Obama’s priorities. In my view this shows his contempt for hard working Americans who pay their taxes and fund the government.
