Flashback: ‘Hillary Clinton Begins Process of Vetting — Herself’

We only need to go back a couple of weeks for this gem.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, the subject of intense news media attention and public scrutiny for the last three decades, is preparing for another thorough vetting as she plans for a likely presidential campaign. In this case, however, it’s not Republicans trying to thwart her or journalists looking for a juicy scoop, but researchers she herself has hired.

Intense news media attention, but the complete inability to find anything, because they don’t want to. Well, thanks to Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi special committee, they now have their juicy scoop.

Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.

Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.

Seems like she broke the law, much to the chagrin her her media protectors.

Aw, the BuzzFeed cub reporter didn’t like that.

And anyway:

Meanwhile, this may “raise questions” or something.

The issue will undoubtedly raise questions as to whether all of her official emails were turned over, questions that could dog Clinton on her potential White House bid. Clinton’s emails will likely be the object of Congressional committees looking to investigate her involvement in certain issues or of journalists seeking Freedom of Information Act requests.
Clinton’s spokesman, Nick Merril, told the Times that Clinton is complying with the “letter and spirit of the rules.” But Jason Baron, a former official at the National Archives and Records Administration, said that the behavior is uncommon.

“I can recall no instance in my time at the National Archives when a high-ranking official at an executive branch agency solely used a personal email account for the transaction of government business,” Baron told the paper.

Let’s face it, we all know how this is going to play out:

This likely criminal behavior seems to be familiar.

Yes, we’re ready, but not for Hillary.
