This is one of the two reporters who latched onto Richard Nixon’s cover-up of the Watergate Hotel burglary and rode the horse until Nixon resigned.
He stumbles over his words here, as though searching for a delicate, inoffensive way to deal with the gravity of this twisted mystery, and rather reluctantly tells us that the Hillary Clinton email story “has to go on a long, long time and the answers are probably not going to be pretty.” (Perhaps until after she’s elected President? Ah, yes. What a fine mess that would put us in.)
Indeed. As a retired cop who obtained a few search and arrest warrants, it’s beyond amazing to me how long it takes in Washington, D.C. to gather up pretty basic forensic evidence, such as documents, recordings of phone calls and emails – even when it’s been subpoenaed. The wrangling and fighting can go on for months – even years. But, then again, Washington, D.C. is one of the most corrupt cities in the world. The delay in turning over such material is nothing more than (legal?) obstruction of the search for truth. Documents say what they say. Emails say what they say. Recordings say what they say.
I’m not worried in the least over how all of this email stuff will turn out. Hillary Clinton remains the Democrats’ front runner for the presidential nomination in 2016. She apparently still has her top secret clearance and is sticking to her story that there was really not much of material importance in her private email server that should concern anyone. Her private business is her private business – right? Further, any hollering, jumping up and down, and arm-waving about her silly email server is nothing more than the usual partisan politics.
So, shall we all just wait and see what happens?
You want my prediction?
Hillary Clinton will survive all this partisan fussing about her emails and she’ll be the Democrats’ 2016 nominee. If the Repubs nominate Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Jonn Kasich, or a reasonable facsimile thereof (read that: any open-borders RINO who knows little to nothing about Islam and the jihad movement), she’ll be the next President.
