Damn video is so inconvenient.
So who’s up for two more years of this bullshit leading up to the 2016 election, and then possibly years more of the lies and stonewalling? Count me out. Even Democrats are already tired of this crap.
Some elements in the story are sure to keep the media salivating.
The Associated Press on Wednesday suggested that the Clinton team created its own email server at Bill and Hillary Clinton’s Chappaqua, N.Y., address, and that it may have been registered under the mysterious name Eric Hoteham.
More worrying to Clinton World, said Simmons, is that the story reminds people of the concerns they have about Hillary and former President Bill Clinton: that they are less than transparent about their business and political dealings.
In 1996 — before many people eligible to vote in the 2016 presidential election were born — President Clinton’s White House suddenly discovered records that had been subpoenaed two years previously as part of the Whitewater probe, pertaining to Hillary Clinton’s legal work in the 1980s.
Just last month it emerged that the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation had quietly lifted a ban on donations from foreign governments that had been in place during the time Hillary Clinton had served as secretary of State.
The two decades between those stories have been punctuated by numerous other controversies pertaining to the Clintons’ sometimes-opaque dealings.
The trait leaves some within the party scratching their heads.
“When you do stuff like this, man, you just raise a lot of concerns and red flags,” the Democratic strategist said. “It’s kinda weird.”
Others observers, especially those not ideologically aligned with the Clintons, are less forgiving.
“When it comes to the Clintons, this is par for the course,” said Tobe Berkovitz, a Boston University professor who specializes in political communications. “One does not use the words ‘Hillary Clinton’ and ‘transparency’ in the same sentence.”
