Benghazi? You're Still Bringing That Up?

If I've seen one meme, I've seen a million -- Hillary Clinton pwned/destroyed/utterly wrecked the nasty Republicans investigating (oh, I'm sorry, wasting millions on a witch hunt) Benghazi. Why are we still talking about it? Oh:
The State Department says about 30 emails that may be related to the 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, are among the thousands of Hillary Clinton emails recovered during the FBI's recently closed investigation into her use of a private server.

Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Department's lawyer said it would need until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released.

Mehta questioned why it would take so long to release so few documents, and urged that the process be sped up. He ordered the department to report to him in a week with more details about why the review process would take a full month.
So, let's see. . . that means the following:

  • Clinton has been lying, yet again, about saying the emails she had destroyed were not related to any investigations.
  • Clinton attempted to destroy federal records. She wasn't able to destroy all of them, but we'll never know for sure what did get destroyed.
  • The State Department is still stonewalling.
  • The goal is to run out the clock.

The stench is getting tough to bear. Where is the Democratic John Dean? Where is the Democratic equivalent of Hugh Scott?

There was an interesting article on Fox asking why the Democrats are so monolithic in support of Clinton--there is no "Never Hilliary" movement on the left as there is on the right. Rush has been saying the left is all about power for a while, and this is making it clear that, now more than ever, that's more true than we'd ever imagined.

it always was about power. this is why the right always loses. the right is about principles. thats all well and good, until you play against the team that doesnt have any.
