When most candidates lost a presidential election it happens at a point in their life where they decide that enough is enough and that they are going to retire to private life, perhaps write a book about their life or do some charity work.
It’s not the worst thing in the world; and if Hillary Clinton would have done that following the election there is a slight chance that people might have thought of her the same way they do about a character that got written out of a long running television show in the second season; she would have eventually faded from memory and wound up nothing more than a Trivial Pursuit question.
However, her insistence on figuring out ways to remain in the spotlight is going to come at a price for her. You see, the longer that you remind people that you are around the more that they think about the things that you have done. Once you get people thinking about you too much they eventually find out as much about you as the possibly can.
That’s the thing that Democrats fail to understand when it comes to Hillary is that all of this mess about the emails probably would have faded away if she had not spent the most of the past two years and change trying to cast President Trump in a bad light. Now, she is just as in the spotlight as she was a couple of years ago when all of those “I’m With Her” signs were clogging our eyeballs but not in nearly as pleasant of a manner in which she would have liked.
The 2016 election may be mercifully behind us, but one of its biggest scandals is still haunting Hillary Clinton.
Clinton’s use of a private, inadequately secured email server during her time as secretary of state rocked her campaign for president, and continued to reverberate into the current political landscape.
The controversial decision by then-FBI Director James Comey to change the wording of Clinton’s actions from “grossly negligent” to softer words like ” extremely careless” may have kept the candidate out of prison, but it also sparked a power struggle within the Trump White House that is still impacting events today.
Now, yet another bombshell in the seemingly endless “Emailgate” scandal shows that former President Barack Obama himself was likely connected to the controversy, at least tangentially. On Tuesday, it was revealed that the FBI found email records from Clinton’s infamous private server within the White House.
“[A] senior FBI official admitted, in writing and under oath, that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President,” Judicial Watch reported.
That watchdog group has been steadily unraveling the Clinton email scandal using Freedom of Information Act requests and other investigative journalism techniques. Interestingly, many observers believe that avoiding FOIA requests is one reason Clinton set up the insecure private server in the first place.
“The FBI also admitted nearly 49,000 Clinton server emails were reviewed as result of a search warrant for her material on the laptop of Anthony Weiner,” Judicial Watch continued.
Weiner is, of course, the disgraced former congressman who was linked to Clinton’s staff through marriage and had a disturbing penchant for underage girls.
These findings suggest that the Clinton server was not compartmentalized, but that sensitive and perhaps classified information leaked between it to numerous sources — including President Obama’s office.
