According to a recent study by the Weslyan Media Project Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign was the worst in modern history.
It’s certainly no secret that she lost an election she easily should have won, but it was clearly her incompetence on the campaign trail that ultimately did her in. But you knew that already. I mean, she ran more ads in Nebraska than she did in Michigan and Wisconsin COMBINED, for crying out loud.
And we all know about Benghazi too, but what we really learned from that mess is that Hillary really struggles to use email, and struggles even more with telling the truth about it.
Well, today we learned that Hillary received some more bad news on that front.
According to Fox News:
“The State Department has opened a formal inquiry into whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was the nation’s top diplomat, Fox News has learned. Despite being under investigation, Clinton and her staffers still have security clearances to access sensitive government information.
The department’s investigation aims to determine whether Clinton and her closest aides violated government protocols by using her private server to receive, hold and transmit classified and top-secret government documents. The department declined to say when its inquiry began, but it follows the conclusion of the FBI’s probe into the matter, which did not result in any actions being taken against Clinton or any of her aides.”
The frustrating thing in all of this, though, is that James Comey already laid it out very clearly that Hillary mishandled classified information, but sadly, he decided not to do anything about it, claiming he needed to prove intent.
According to Judge Andrew Napolitano, he didn’t. Hillary clearly broke the law and violated the espionage act. There is no doubt about it. And, Comey was wrong to pretend that he needed to prove intent.
If the State Dept. determines she did mishandle the classified information, will it move forward and do anything about it? Something tells me it won’t, but one can always hope.
