ABC News ‘Reporter’ Whines That Corrupt Clinton’s E-mail Scandal ‘Just Won’t Go Away’

Well, it keeps going away (in the media, that is),  but her likely criminal behavior keeps emerging. Despite the media’s best efforts, Grandma’s got a lot of problems, and it’s not the GOP’s fault.

Sorry, toots.

On Sunday, reporters on ABC’s Good Morning America and This Week repeatedly complained that the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail while at the State Department “won’t go away.”

On GMA, ABC’s Clinton reporter Cecilia Vega labeled the scandal “e-mailgate” before she whined to George Stephanopoulos that the story “just won’t go away.” The ABC reporter then sympathetically questioned whether or not the story was “hurting her out there on the trail?”

Here’s a radical idea: Why don’t you go out and ask people? Crazy thought, huh?

After Stephanopoulos noted that in multiple polls “the number of people who consider her [Hillary Clinton] not trustworthy continue to remain high” he made sure to stress that there’s no evidence it is having a “fatal” impact on her 2016 bid.

On This Week, Stephanopoulos continued to complain that the e-mail story was still in the news as he asked Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison: “These questions about the e-mails don’t go away. How much are you worried that this is hurting her campaign?”

After the Democrat rushed to defend Hillary from the “nonstory” Stephanopoulos tried his best to defend Mrs. Clinton over a report in the New York Times in which an inspector general asked the Department of Justice to investigate whether or not she sent classified documents from her private e-mail server:

One of the things that the Clinton campaign says this is happening all the time, we’re victimized by these huge headlines that aren’t backed up by the story that’s there. 

She’s a strong powerful woman, the smartest woman in the world(!), yet somehow remains a victim. Of her own doing, we might add.

Meanwhile, we sure hope those meanies in the GOP don’t overreach while questioning Her Thighness.

    Yet another example of Democrat privilege.

    If Hillary had been a Republican, she wouldn’t be more than a blot on the highway by now.

    The SECSTATE’s daily meeting agenda and schedule would be considered “Confidential”, since he/she is one of the members of the NSC (along with POTUS/VPOTUS, SECDEF, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the National Security Adviser). And there is absolutely NO WAY that she could have avoided sending AND receiving classified information if she “only used the one account”, up to and including Top Secret and Code Word classified information.

    And if she deleted it after receiving it (as if there was any way to actually delete stuff from e-mail servers using a Blackberry), then she is in violation of US Code, Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 101, Section 2071, Paragraphs (a) & (b), which has that nice sting in the tail…

    Paragraph (a): “Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”

    Paragraph (b): “Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term ‘office’ does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.”

    We have the two top spokes-persons for Hillary commiserating with each other on national television.

    This is called “news”.

    Yup.

    Ronald Reagan had a famous line in his ’76 and ’80 campaigns for President: “The nine most frightening words in the English language are ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.'”

    As President a couple years later, he updated the line by adding the then-current marketing slogan for ABC:

    “The 13 most frightening words in the English language are ‘More people get their news from ABC News than from any other source.'”

    He was dead right in both cases. Some things never change.
