Don’t Forget about the Clinton Email Scandal – CNN Says it “Has New Legs”

Folks, I know that keeping up with all of the political happenings can become a bit tedious, but don’t get complacent when it comes to the Clinton email scandal.

On CNN’s Inside Politics this Sunday morning, host John King told his audience to pay attention in the coming days because the Email scandal had grown a new set of legs when the State Department admitted that Clinton never gave them some emails that clearly discuss State Department business. King then went on to lay all of the blame for the scandal that he believes to be a big nothingburger, squarely at the feet of Hillary Clinton, saying, “Now, will some Republicans blow this out of proportion or wander into the realm of conspiracy theory? 

Perhaps, even probably, but as Democrats accuse them of being partisan or reckless, remember this: This would not be an issue if Clinton hadn’t erased her email server and if she followed the wishes of her boss, Obama about how to handle cabinet-level emails.”

 

 

Later on CBS’ Face the Nation Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who is leading the House Select Committee on Benghazi, said that he is very close to calling the current Secretary of State John Kerry to testify. Why? Because Gowdy says, “They haven’t given us emails for nine of the ten senior aides that [Sec. Clinton] had. It has been over a year and we don’t have a single scrap of paper… I’ve tried to do this the right way, not with theater, not with theatrics, I’ve tried to do it without the drama, just the documents. But that has not proven to be successful.” 

 

 

Trey Gowdy: “They haven’t given us emails for nine of the ten senior aides that [Sec. Clinton] had. It has been over a year and we don’t have a single scrap of paper…

I am happy to conclude this investigation just as soon as John Kerry decides that he is going to give us the documents that we are entitled to…

I’ve tried to do this the right way, not with theater, not with theatrics, I’ve tried to do it without the drama, just the documents. But that has not proven to be successful. So I have met with Sec. Kerry’s chief of staff, we met privately on the phone last week. Our next interaction will be public, and if I don’t get satisfaction from that public interaction with his chief of staff, the next person to come to Congress to explain why he has been recalcitrant in turning over documents, will be Sec. Kerry himself. I get that he has other things going on, an important portfolio, but I want to get this investigation over with.”
