In her sworn testimony made public this week, longtime Clinton aide Cheryl Mills proved that Team Hillary won’t give up an ounce of truth without a fight.
Mills, Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department, was deposed by lawyers for Judicial Watch, the watchdog that has driven most of the key revelations about Clinton’s e-mail transgressions.
Juiciest of all was Mills’ excuse for Clinton’s failure to turn over her e-mails, all official government information, on leaving office: There was “a lot going on.”
“The secretary was not only transitioning, there had been a — we had lost our first ambassador [Christopher Stevens, in the Benghazi terrorist attack] in quite some time, and we were stepping through the sets of issues associated with that,” Mills said.
Hmm. But then Clinton sat on the e-mails for two years, only handing them over after hackers revealed her secret setup.
In fact, the record’s clear that she “went home-brew” precisely to frustrate Freedom of Information Act requests. Worse, Clinton and her inner circle all signed agreements promising to safeguard classified info — then winked as the private server put those secrets at risk.
