Call it yet the latest example of the taxpayer-funded steamroller, called our Just Us Department: a steamroller that can ruin lives during investigations that increase federal prosecutor profiles on their way up the chain. We’re witnessing in real time an underbelly of our government that would’ve been sight unseen had Hillary Clinton won the presidency: the push to enforce the unregistered foreign agent law that many well-connected are even bothered with.
When it comes to inconvenient episodes like an FBI interview about her private email system, Hillary Clinton comes off as either a liar or senile.
Hillary Clinton told FBI agents that she could not recall issues related to her email server at least 26 times, according to an 11-page document released by the FBI on Friday.
Highlights of things Clinton could not recall in the FBI interview:
— When she received security clearance
— Being briefed on how to handle classified material
— Any briefing, how to handle very top-secret “Special Access Program” material
— How to select a target for a drone strike
— How data from her mobile devices was destroyed when she switched devices
— Why she didn’t get a secure Blackberry
— Receiving any emails she thought should not be on the private system
— Did not remember giving staff direction to create private email account
— Getting guidance from state on email policy
— Who had access to her Blackberry account
— The process for deleting her emails
— Anyone besides Huma Abedin being offered an account on the private server
— Using an iPad mini
— State Dept. protocol for confirming classified information in media reports
— Every briefing she received after suffering concussions
— Being read out of her clearance
— Any further access to her private email account from her State Dept. tenure after switching to her HRCoffice.com account
Hillary Clinton also had memory issues when she was questioned during the investigation of the Madison Guaranty Savings and Loans, and the Whitewater development corporation.
W. Hickman Ewing Jr., Kenneth W. Starr’s deputy, said that at dinner one evening with other Starr staff members, he graded the president and first lady on their responses to questioning by Whitewater investigators.
“I said the president [got] about a ‘C’ and Mrs. Clinton about an ‘F,’ ” Ewing testified. He said his remark followed his observing her during a July 1995 deposition, in which she said ” ‘I don’t recall’ about 50 times.”
He said he drafted the proposed indictment against the first lady sometime after September 1996. Early that year, her long-sought billing records from the Rose Law Firm mysteriously surfaced in the White House
While she’s also using the bump on the head excuse, that kind of falls apart because some things are clear examples of dishonesty as they can’t be passed off as a contagious forgetting disease with a straight face.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s counsel and chief of staff Cheryl Mills replied at least 189 times with variations of “I don’t know” or “I don’t recall” during a deposition about the Clinton email scandals.
And what would happen if any of us lost a company laptop, let alone one with classified government information on it? Obviously nothing if your name is Hillary Clinton.
A Clinton Foundation laptop and a thumb drive used to archive Hillary Clinton’s emails from her time as secretary of state are missing, according to FBI notes released on Friday.
Would we really want Hillary’s finger on the button if she couldn’t remember if she’d pushed it or not and may not be able to remember why in the first place? Even worse, would we want her finger on the button knowing she’d lie about why she’d need to push it?
I’ve always been fortunate enough to get along with in-laws and/or girlfriend’s parents. And even if I didn’t, there’s really no good time to be bad-mouthing anyone… especially nowadays.
Anthony Weiner accused his Muslim parents-in-law of being ‘backwards thinking’ and never accepting him because of his Jewish background, it was revealed today.
Newly released messages from the disgraced former congressman’s text conversations, obtained exclusively by MailOnline, show how Weiner had explicit exchanges with women comparing them to his wife. The devastating new allegations will put added strain on his marriage to Huma Abedin, who is due to give birth to their first child in the New Year.
You’d think her relationship was on shaky ground when he just humiliated Huma, but we’re now finding out he also did so verbally. Added to that his publicly insulting her “backwards thinking” family, it may be time to go into hiding.
Chris Matthews, c’mon. What an asshole.
Clinton’s Top Muslim Aide to Wed Jewish Congressman
Brooklyn, New York Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner will marry outside the Jewish religion to Huma Abedin, a Muslim woman who is considered one of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top aides, the New York Daily News reported.

I don’t think she’s marrying him for the family name.
