Over the past several months, the scandal involving Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for State Department business has dominated the news. First there are the allegations of impropriety concerning the use of any private email for official government business.
When pressed to explain, Clinton first denied using a private email account for any official business. After evidence was presented to the contrary, she admitted using her private email but swore that she never received or sent any classified information.
When pressed to produce all of her emails, she first said that they had been lost but later changed her story. Then she supposedly deleted over 30,000 emails that she claimed were private, before handing over the rest of her emails.
When pressed by a federal judge, Clinton swore she had turned over all of her emails, but we’ve seen learned that too was a lie and more emails have been found.
Through the entire scandal, Clinton swore time and again that she never received or sent any classified information, but investigators have found that she had received information that was deemed to be classified on more than one occasion.
After that revelation was made public, Hillary again swore that she never ever sent any classified information via her personal email. I wonder what she’s going to say now after the latest revelation made public by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC).
Gowdy, Chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, said that Clinton received an email on March 18, 2011 from longtime Clinton friend Sidney Blumenthal to her personal account that contained very sensitive information that Blumenthal had received from a former high level CIA official identifying a CIA top Libyan intelligence source.
According to former CIA officer John Maguire, the nature of the sensitive information should have raised a red flag with Clinton indicating that the information should have been marked as classified. However, Clinton then forwarded the email on to a colleague via her personal email account/server.
Gowdy informed Rep. Elijah Cummings, (D-MD), the top Democrat on the House Benghazi committee in a 13 page letter.
The next step in the House investigation will take place on Oct. 22 when Hillary Clinton is scheduled to appear before the House Select Committee on Benghazi. One can only wonder what excuse or lie she’ll tell this time in her attempt to cover her butt.
America has had too many leaders who lie and make excuses for making mistakes. We need a strong leader who will stand up and take the blame for being human instead of trying to act like a sinless god, which they are anything but.
