Step lower back from the limitless news of Clinton Foundation/Clinton State Department sleaze and Clinton e mail abuse, and shake your head at this: Hillary Clinton still believes she did in reality nothing wrong.
That jaw-dropper surfaced in Annie Karni’s report for Politico at the campaign’s damage-control efforts on the candidate’s scandals: Hillary’s minions plan to just “ride out” the clock to Election Day — “a strategy born … of a perception held deeply via Clinton herself that the email controversy is a faux scandal.”
A yr and a half after news of her use of a home-brewed server — it appears that evidently, to shield her paintings communications from Freedom of Information laws — Clinton nevertheless sees everything as “not anything extra than a partisan assault,” Karni writes after talking to pinnacle campaign aides.
Right, because FBI Director Jim Comey turned into a Republican device whilst he condemned Clinton’s behavior — which uncovered lots of classified e-mails to hackers — as “extremely careless.”
The Associated Press should be partisan, too: This week it reported that extra than 1/2 of the human beings outside authorities who met with Secretary of State Clinton had donated in a few manner to the Clinton Foundation.
At least eighty five of 154 human beings from personal interests who were given face time with the secretary had donated to the foundation, consistent with State Department calendars released to this point to the AP. Combined, the contributions overall as lots as $156 million.
And this, on pinnacle of multiple email dumps displaying Clinton’s top aides at State scrambling to arrange conferences and even jobs to please basis donors.
Yet the Clintons it appears that evidently don’t assume they ever did whatever incorrect. Why else refuse to shut the inspiration down? Why now promise you’ll forestall taking foreign or corporate donations at only some segments of the muse, except you think the giving is easy, as it’s all going in your cause?
Never mind the promises Clinton broke at State — to have the inspiration take no overseas cash and insulate State decision-making from foundation influence; to safeguard labeled info and ensure State had its personal copies of all her work communiques . . .
If she makes it to the White House, be warned: Hillary Clinton will in no way stop breaking her word and the guidelines whenever she pleases, due to the fact in her mind something she does is moral.
