It’s not a Democrat scandal until Republicans are on the defensive. And it didn’t take long for the hacktastic media to go chasing after Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to answer the questions they won’t ask Mrs. Clinton.
Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, a likely Republican presidential candidate in 2016, criticized Hillary Rodham Clinton for using a personal email account when she was secretary of state.
“Hillary Clinton’s potential evasion of laws is something she should answer questions about,” Mr. Walker said through his spokeswoman, Kirsten Kukowski, in an email.
“Wisconsin has a strong open records law with a broad presumption of access to records, and the governor has very specific policies in place in his office to assure that the laws are complied with fully,” she said.
A spokesman for Mrs. Clinton declined to comment.
Other Republican presidential prospects have not commented on the Clinton email issue this week, even as the Republican National Committee has criticized her.
Democrats have spent most of the week pointing out that a yearslong investigation into Mr. Walker’s tenure as Milwaukee County executive led to claims by prosecutors that some of his aides had set up their own private email server in their government offices.
With the media happily doing their bidding. Clinton gets to stroll through an airport unencumbered by a media swarm that would be all over a Republican facing such questions, with the exception of TMZ asking her about it. Naturally she didn’t answer. Why bother? She’s gotten away with all sorts of nefarious deeds her entire life. She’s silent over the scandal threatening to derail her political career, but it’s the Republicans who are awkward in their silence or something. Meanwhile, questions continue to swirl around Mrs. Clinton, except nobody’s asking her.
Questions are swirling about the security of the “homebrew” email service that Hillary Clinton used while serving as secretary of State.
Clinton reportedly used a private email service hosted on a server registered to her Chappaqua, N.Y., home, instead of an official government account.
Security experts are alarmed by the arrangement, warning it likely left critical national secrets vulnerable to hackers and spies.
“It’s irresponsible for the top U.S. diplomat to be putting communications at risk in that way,” said Christopher Soghoian, principal technologist for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). “After the president, Secretary Clinton was probably the highest value target for foreign intelligence agencies.”
So how good was Clinton’s security? Experts say they need answers to these questions before knowing for sure.
Good luck getting any answers. Judicial Watch sure hasn’t:
