POLIZETTE — Hillary Clinton claims she’s as transparent as a jellyfish, but the scandals that plague her candidacy and her husband’s eight-year presidency show the deceit and deception surrounding the Clinton name. Yet somehow, like Shakespeare’s famous Scottish couple, they always get off scot-free.
Bill Clinton created the late Friday document dump and his wife has now adopted the same strategy in order to keep the press from sniffing around in her shady dealings. Hillary made it a point to emphasize that she released 55,000 of her emails, but the contents of those emails were released piecemeal over a series of late Friday afternoons.
What’s more, instead of handing over a digital copy of the emails from her private server, Clinton directed her staff to physically print out every single email, making them more difficult to search. And, of course, she deleted some 30,000 she deemed “personal.”
The email scandal has been damning for Hillary as she tries to overcome the public’s perception that she is untrustworthy and dishonest. Just last week, a 78-page State Department inspector general audit was released that showed Hillary didn’t ask permission to use her own private email server during her tenure as secretary of state, and that if she had, the IG wouldn’t have approved it.
