Another NY Newspaper Editorial Board Raises Questions about Hillary/IG Report

(Yes, the NYPost is Conservative but many in the NY Metropolitan Area and New Jersey read it. Plus the NYDaily News Editorial Board and the NYT also have come out against Hillary over the IG Report's findings.)

Team Hillary’s Latest Email Lie --By Post Editorial Board

May 31, 2016 | 8:24pm

If one lie doesn’t serve, try another: That’s clearly the idea behind the Hillary Clinton campaign’s response to last week’s blistering review of her email scandal.

The report from the State Department inspector general notes multiple violations of law in her use of a home server and private email.

But her campaign chairman, John Podesta, calls the IG’s work wonderful news for Hillary — because it “gets us one step closer to resolving” the issue. That is, to having Emailgate fade into history, with Clinton paying no price for her simple, uh, “mistake.”

After all, anyone can accidentally set up a secret email server at home and use it to hide government correspondence, even after being warned it’s illegal, right?

Yet Podesta might wind up “correct” in thinking Hillary will get a pass. After all, it wouldn’t be the first time she and Bill got away with hiding digital correspondence.

As Paul Sperry noted in Sunday’s Post, the Clinton White House “lost” a huge trove of subpoenaed emails in 1999 — as it faced probes of Whitewater, Travelgate and other scandals involving Hillary.

Back then, the White House blamed a “glitch” in a computer server. And, at the center of that affair (dubbed “Project X” internally): a young aide named Cheryl Mills.

That’s right: the same Cheryl Mills who served as Hillary’s aide when she used her home server — and who oversaw Team Hillary’s deletion of 32,000 of the emails stored there.


Clinton insisted those emails were just personal — but several (recovered from other sources) have proven directly relevant to her State business, including emails about her refusal to adhere to State rules on email security.

Like Clinton, Mills refused to cooperate with the IG’s investigation.

Podesta might prove right, if the Obama Justice Department opts to whitewash the lawbreaking to protect Clinton’s White House bid. Or he may prove wrong — if the voters decide they’ve had enough of history repeating itself.

Democrats have something else that wakes them up screaming in the middle of the night: the prospect that the FBI will recommend charges against Clinton or her aides when it completes its own probe. If Clinton loses the FBI primary, Trump could have an unimpeded path to the White House.

For most of the past year, Democrats have been happily distracted by the GOP's apparent urge to blow itself up. They failed to notice they were walking into their own minefield without a map.

Cheryl had 7 lawyers for a civil deposition. The FBI interview must have been hysterical.

If it's an opinion piece, authorship should be taken into consideration. But content is still more important -- is it factual? Is it reason-based, logical? Does it make sense? Does it appeal to the reader's rational capacities? Etc.

That's kind of a problem.

I read a post this morning that suggested she's trying to get into office before the indictments so she can quash them.

I work in InfoSec and we work with the intelligence community quite a bit. Yes... they are planning to leak if she's given a pass.

There is no FBI investigation into Bernie or Jane.

I know you wish your candidate wasn't subject to a criminal investigation by the FBI. In fact i wish the same.

But making shit up is poor form.

That link does not support your claim. Unless you have more, it is clear you are desperately projecting and wishing it wasn't your candidate subject to an actual FBI criminal investigation.

Had not heard that Cheryl Mills was part of the lost/deleted email problems in Clinton White House. And to think that Comey was one of the investigators seeking those records.

Things don't change much with the Clintons.

Did you actually read even the OP? I don't need the snark.

For the record, I think the odds are dropping below 50% that there will be a HC WH.
