More good news for the flailing, hapless Granny Clinton.
Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey said Sunday that Hillary Clinton is indeed the focus of a Justice Department probe, calling the argument that the investigation is about her private email network when she was secretary of state “ridiculous.”
“The FBI doesn’t investigate machines,” Mukasey, a Bush administration attorney general, told “Fox News Sunday.” “It investigates people.”
“It is not a political witch hunt,” he said.
For months, questions about the private email network Clinton used while secretary of state have nagged her 2016 Democratic presidential campaign.
In recent weeks, the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence community have asked the Justice Department to open an investigation into whether Clinton’s network received or sent classified emails.
Clinton and her campaign have repeatedly said that she neither sent nor received classified email. And they have argued the investigation is not a “criminal” probe and that government nomenclature is at the center of the issue.
“What’s going on here is something that happens all the time,” Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon recently argued. “You have a bureaucratic tangle over what counts as classified and what doesn’t.”
Mukasey, an adviser for Republican Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign, said arguments about what information was either classified or unclassified is “at the margins” of the debate.
“It’s inconceivable that a great deal of the information was unclassified,” he told Fox.
Meanwhile, did you know Grandma’s criminal behavior was all manufactured by a bored media? Yes, really.
HOWARD DEAN: I actually don’t think the answers are evolving. I think they’re steady as she goes. Look, this is, in fact, manufactured partly by a press that’s bored and partly by the Republicans. Here’s the deal. She did not break any rules, she did not break any policy, she may have sent stuff that was classified that wasn’t labeled classified, and it is well known that the State Department and others are trying to get stuff classified after the fact. She can’t be blamed for this. So I look at this as the usual press frenzy, the pack journalism, and I think it’ll go away, because there’s no sense to it.
What a clown.
