As Democrats foam at the mouth in anticipation of the FBI’s conclusion after searching Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, Hillary Clinton’s name started to creep back out from the shadows. Clinton has managed to allude to accountability after she allowed reported classified emails to leave her private unsecured server.
The leak turned national security on its head, to put that extremely lightly, and though she was deemed negligent and responsible—Clinton was never held accountable.
Since the raid on Mar-a-Lago, many people are starting to poke around the dying embers of Clinton’s scandal and let me tell you, Hillary is not happy. She released a series of angry tweets expressing as much:
“I can’t believe we’re still talking about this, but my emails,” Clinton posted in a Twitter thread. “As Trump’s problems continue to mount, the right is trying to make this about me again. There’s even a ‘Clinton Standard.’ The fact is that I had zero emails that were classified.”
Then-FBI Director James “Comey admitted he was wrong after he claimed I had classified emails,” she continued. “Trump’s own State Department, under two different Secretaries, found I had no classified emails. That’s right: ZERO.”
“By contrast,” Clinton said, “Trump has hundreds of documents clearly marked classified, and the investigation just started.”
But wait… Did Comey Clear Clinton of any wrong doing?
Comey at the time said that Clinton and her aides were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”
But what he recanted in an interview with ABC News‘ George Stephanopoulos in April 2018 is the fact that he was “sloppy” in how he described how Clinton would not be charged. He never said that none of the documents were classified.
“I should’ve worked harder to find a way to convey that it’s more than just the ordinary mistake, but it’s not criminal behavior, and find different words to describe that,” Comey said in the interview.
So, yeah… History determined THAT was a lie, Hillary.
