Hillary Clinton spoke to a bunch of people in a garden in Iowa Tuesday, and was introduced by a guy who belittled the ongoing email and Benghazi scandals by stating “Who cares?”
“Set aside all that hoo-ha about emails and this, and about Benghazi. Who cares?” said Nathan Ryker of Muscatine, Iowa.
As Clinton nodded along in agreement, Ryker added “I want to know what tomorrow is about, not what yesterday’s about.”
Yeah, America – who gives a f*ck about four dead diplomats, rampaging terrorists and compromising national security?
Her supporters might argue that these are just the words of some guy, and do not reflect Hillary’s own views. However, her repeated joking and laughing about wiping her personal email server (“what, with a cloth?”), and continual dismissal of the details surrounding the Benghazi attack (“Why does it matter?”, “What difference does it make?”) would suggest otherwise.
As would her latest campaign ad, which essentially frames the investigative committee as a pillar of that long standing “vast right-wing conspiracy”:
Earlier this week Clinton also suggested that the investigation has been set up by Republicans to go after her.
“Look at the situation they chose to exploit to go after me for political reasons, the death of four Americans in Benghazi. I knew [Ambassador Christopher Stevens]. I identified him. I asked him to go there. I asked the president to nominate him,” Clinton said in New Hampshire.
“This committee was set up, as they have admitted, for the purpose of making a partisan political issue out of the deaths of four Americans.” she added.
It has emerged this week that HIllary’s emails were most likely backed up on a ‘cloud’ server, owing to a technical hitch, and may still exist there.
It also emerged that the Clinton team ordered the company managing her private email network to reduce the amount of email data being stored during each server backup by decreasing the backup time period for email retention to just 30 days.
An employee of the Platte River company believed that the reductions were requested immediately following requests to Hillary from the State Department to turn over her emails.
In a private message to a co-worker, which has now been discovered, the employee noted “Starting to think this whole thing really is covering up some shady sh*t.”
“I just think if we have it in writing that they told us to cut the backups, and that we can go public with our statement saying we have had backups since day one, then we were told to trim to 30 days, it would make us look a WHOLE LOT better.” the employee told his colleague.
The FBI is investigating the matter, and has also seized four State Department computer servers… but who cares?
