“I know people have raised questions about my email use as secretary of state, and I understand why. I get it. (1) So here’s what I want the American people to know: My use of personal email was allowed by the State Department. (2) It clearly wasn’t the best choice. (3) I should’ve used two emails: one personal, one for work. I take responsibility for that decision, and I want to be as transparent as possible, which is why I turned over 55,000 pages (4), why I’ve turned over my server (5), why I’ve agreed to — in fact, been asking to — and have finally gotten a date to testify before a congressional committee in October. (6) I’m confident that this process will prove that I never sent, nor received, any email that was marked classified. (7).
(1) She got it once her poll numbers started going down. What Hillary gets is that the stonewalling wasn’t working.
(2) She takes full responsibility, but what she did was allowed by somebody else…the Department that she was in charge of! Isn’t this great?
(3) “It wasn’t the best choice” is deceit. It falsely implies that it wasn’t a bad choice, just not the best one, which, of course, is the best of good choices.
(4) 55,000 sounds like a lot, but it was not all the pages. More deceit.
(5) That’s not why she turned over her server: this a lie. She turned over the server because the FBI demanded it.
(6) She will testify only after intentionally destroying e-mails before the subpoena she knew was coming from the committee demanded them. This is called “destroying potential evidence,” and is unethical, if not criminal.
(7) Note “marked.” She did send and receive e-mails she had to know would have been marked classified if she hadn’t recived them on a private account. Note “marked classified.” The FBI believes that some of the e-mails she received were marked “top secret.” Not classified, though.
This is called “a Clintonism.”
