1. This was expected.

The State Department suspended its investigation during the FBI inquiry.

"The State Department started its review in January after declaring 22 emails from Clinton's private server to be "top secret." The investigation was suspended in April to avoid interfering with the FBI's inquiry. State Department spokesman John Kirby said the probe is restarting after the Justice Department's announcement Wednesday that it won't bring any criminal charges."

"It looks like Hillary won't be helping the relaunched State Dept investigation."

I wouldn't necessarily reach that conclusion. I think Clinton did make it clear that she won't be throwing anybody under the bus.

2. True but Hillary did dodge that question. Twice

Hillary also threw everyone who sent her classified information under the bus in this interview.

4. Hillary did not toss them under the bus. She merely refuted Comey's

"any rational person should have known" statement in his testimony.

5. NWCorona, your orientation is completely predictable

on any post.

"This (the Dallas murders) is the kind of call to action, and as president, I would implement the very comprehensive set of proposals that I've been making for more than a year," Clinton said in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "We must do more to have national guidelines about the use of force by police, especially deadly force."

Clinton also called on communities across the country to show more "respect" to the police, as she paid tribute to the officers who risked and lost their lives in Dallas. "Look at what happened in Dallas. Those police officers were protecting a peaceful protest ... that is a hallmark of America," she said. "And when the shooting started and everyone else was fleeing, the police were moving toward danger."

But Clinton also warned that there was a "terrible disconnect" between police officers and the people they are meant to protect. She explicitly stated that some African-Americans are dying as a result of "systemic" and "implicit bias." "Too many African-Americans shave been killed in encounters with police over matters that should not have led to that action being taken," she said.
Clinton called on white Americans to put themselves in the shoes of blacks "who fear every time their children go somewhere; who have to have the talk about how to really protect themselves when they're the ones who should be expecting protection from encounters with the police."
"I'm going to be talking to white people -- I think we're the ones who have to have to start listening to the legitimate cries that are coming from our African-American fellow citizens," she said.

The Dallas shooting occurred in the middle of a peaceful demonstration Thursday on the streets of downtown Dallas. The protest was a part of the national uproar over two African-American men -- Alton Sterling and Philando Castile -- who were shot and killed by police in Louisiana and Minnesota, respectively, this week. The Clinton campaign canceled a joint rally with Vice President Joe Biden in Scranton, Pennsylvania, scheduled for earlier Friday, citing the "tragic events" in Dallas. It marked the second time in a month that it had canceled a major rally following a shooting -- in June, it pushed back an event with President Barack Obama in the aftermath of a terrorist attack at an Orlando nightclub that killed 49 people.

8. But I posted the statements without

changing them to reflect my interpretation. And I agree I am predictable insofar as you do know ahead of time that I will not be posting negative takes on everything HRC is and does.
