Liberal Website Gawker says Hillary’s Claims are “Insulting to the American People!”

The Gawker is a popular liberal media and pop culture website that usually break stories about celebrity gossip not the most important politicians in America. However, because the “respectable” media has generally refused to vet or even seriously observe the Clinton family it was left to the tabloid media to do the work of journalism on Hillary Clinton’s recent email scandal.

While many of the supposedly serious members of the liberal media have been doing their best to deflect criticism from Clinton, Gawker has been working hard to cover the story honestly and fairly. Which is why their executive editor, John Cook,sounds so frustrated by the whole set of circumstances. Going so far as to say…

it is insulting to the intelligence of the American people, that she thinks that that would be a reasonable explanation for why she took the extraordinary steps of setting up an email server apparently in her home, monitored and administered outside the bounds of the State Dept. team that is there to ensure the security of communication is preposterous.

 

 

It certainly is very Nixonian, this plot that was hatched to keep her private — her governmental and private communications out of the hands of government. And you know, it is about controlling information.

One of the things I think is interesting — the idea she did this for convenience because she didn’t want two devices is just preposterous — it is insulting to the intelligence of the American people, that she thinks that that would be a reasonable explanation for why she took the extraordinary steps of setting up an email server apparently in her home, monitored and administered outside the bounds of the State Dept. team that is there to ensure the security of communication is preposterous.

The reason that they hatched this scheme is so that when I file a FOIA request for those communications, the State Dept. can say we don’t have them.

The reason they hatched this scheme is so that when Congressional investigators asked for emails about Benghazi or whatever other issues they might be investigating, her emails wouldn’t be included in that information.
