Hillary Clinton just can’t get a break. Or, maybe it’s that she just can’t tell the truth. Either way, the latest in the email scandal, could land her in more hot water than she has dealt with so far. The group, Judicial Watch has uncovered some 14,900 previously unseen work-related emails that Clinton failed to turn over to the State Department when she was ordered to do so. That’s something like seven data disks full of information, and thousands of pages of new, potentially damaging emails.
What really is most damaging to Clinton isn’t what is in the emails, but the fact that she perjured herself in front of DC Federal Court judge James Boasberg,who is an Obama appointee. She swore in front of the court that she had turned over a
all work-related emails to the State Department, when that was obviously not the case. That has sparked calls from both sides of the aisle for the FBI to investigate Clinton on perjury charges.
It’s just one more in a long line of testimony gone awry for the Democrat presidential nominee. She has been caught in lie after lie, and continues to this day to argue that it’s something that “every previous Secretary of State has done”. Well, not exactly. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell has come out and blasted Clinton for lying, stating that the advice he gave her wasn’t followed, and that the difference between what he did in using a private email account varies markedly different than Clinton’s use not of a private email account, but an email server.
Still, Clinton and her team insist they have done nothing wrong. And with a justice department that has been called one of the most partisan and biased in US history, it remains doubtful that Clinton will ever be officially brought up on charges by the DOJ. However, this didn’t occur with the DOJ. This whole mess occured through a civil lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch, and it appears that the Obama appointee Boasberg has seen enough shenanigans to put an end to it.
It is doubtful to say the least that Clinton will see the inside of a jail cell for her crime, at least at this stage of the game. But what is more of a concern to her is that the emails that she tried to hide are going to be made public, and probably within a month before the election. Judge Boasberg told the State Department he wanted the emails released to the public by the 23rd of September, 46 scant days before the election. Such a move could be detrimental and sink Clinton’s chances for a victory. If it’s found that she was indeed trying to hide anything in those emails by not turning them over, it most certainly will cost her the election.
Even top level Democrats are starting to waver on their support for Clinton. Not publicly, mind you, but the rumblings of a candidate who may have stepped over the line once too often, and once too far may be evident. Only time will tell!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
