Like a cancer that will not go into remission, the Clintons keep coming back.
As a malady debilitating the body politic, this particular disease is a strain of the oral variety--they just cannot stop lying and obfuscating.
After delaying for several days to get her talking points in order, Hillary! Clinton finally answered--and dodged--questions about her use of a private email account on a private server for government business.
During the press conference, she claimed that she "opted for convenience" by using one device for both personal and government business. The "inconvenient truth," however, is that two weeks earlier at the Watermark Silicon Valley Conference for Women, she admitted to being a hoarder of sorts with electronic devices. According to Hillary!, she uses an iPad, iPhone, a mini-iPad, and a Blackberry.
If you can endure her phony cackling, you can watch the exchange here.
Hillary! explained that she and her staff went through 60,000 emails. About 30,000 consisted of personal emails, including those of her husband and another 30,000 government emails. The personal emails were deleted and the government emails were turned over to the government.
A spokesman for Bill Clinton, however, says that the former president has sent only two emails in his life. Story here.
And although the personal emails allegedly have been deleted, she insisted that the server on which the emails were stored will remain private and off limits to any independent investigator.
Hillary! assured the members of the press that the server is safely guarded by secret service agents. Of course, it is not through "breaking and entering" that electronic data is stolen; it is through hacking.
Hillary! asks that American trust her that she kept her personal and government email accounts separate--trust her that she sent government business only to government based websites--trust her that she never sent classified documents by email at all.
Maybe there is nothing to this.
After Whitewater, Cattlegate, the so-called bimbo eruptions, and the preposterous claim that they were broke when they left the White House, however, it is difficult to believe anything they say anymore.
Theodore White once described Richard Nixon as a man who had told so many lies that eventually he found it easier to lie than to tell the truth--even when it did not matter.
It seems an apt description of that metastasizing malignancy from Little Rock--the Clintons.
