I was watching the head of the FBI, James B. Comey, make his announcement about the e-mail investigation conducted by his agency of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server. To say that many people were shocked at the outcome would be an understatement. The Director basically rewrote the law by inserting language that was not in the law, in order for him to make his recommendation not to prosecute Mrs. Clinton. He used the word “intent” as a basis to excuse her and her staff’s behavior. The Federal Records Act of 1995 does not use the word “intent”. This interpretation was much like Chief Justice Roberts creating a new law to permit Obama Care to proceed. One could ask if General Petraeus can appeal his verdict based on the new interpretation on his “intent”?
After I listened to his prepared remarks, the thought came to me that regardless of the outcome of the November election, Bill and Hillary Clinton have changed the meaning of two words in the English language forever. Bill changed the meaning of the word “sex”, while Hillary forever changed the meaning of “integrity” for public officials.
Supporters of Bernie Sanders have used the word liar throughout the primary campaign to describe Hillary’s moral fiber. The Director of the FBI showed us, by using examples, the extent to which Hillary lied to the Congress and the American people. He pointed out that Mrs. Clinton indicated that she never sent or received e-mails that were marked classified. He went on to say, “110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received by Mrs. Clinton. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and, eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification.” The bottom line is that every time she said, she never sent or received classified information, she lied to us.
The following quote is from Adolf Hitler he said, “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” The question is, did Hillary reach a point that she believed she was telling the truth? Were her lies making her a pathological liar, read on?
She told all of us that she only had one server yet Comey reported that she had several. Did she not remember she had more than one? She told us that what she did was permitted by the State Department to use private servers but yet the Inspector General for the State Department, Steven Linck, said that, “Mrs. Clinton never asked for a separate server capacity.” He also indicated in his report, “that had she asked she would have been denied.” Did she think she had asked and it was approved? Perhaps she intended to ask but for some reason didn’t remember she hadn’t asked for permission. Is it possible that she is in early stages of dementia as a result of the very serious head injury a few years back when she fell and hit her head and was hospitalized for an extended period of time? Could the accident be the root cause of her confused memory?
Some will recall the special glasses she had to wear for blurred vision both at her first testimony on Benghazi and earlier this year on the campaign trail. Is her inability to focus or remember another side effect of dementia or this injury? These questions might lead one to ask is she stable enough to be commander and chief? Comey questioned her “reckless approach”, in handling sensitive communications. Her actions have made her a security risk. The Speaker of the House has suggested that she should be banned from receiving classified information until after the election.
The FBI Director focused on the lack of security in handling classified documents. The Director reported, “there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” If she could not distinguish what was classified and what wasn’t, then this may be another example of potentially diminished mental capacity? The Secretary is the senior official in the Department of State and is accountable for the actions of her staff. It appears that she delegated to certain individuals, who were not cleared for handling classified documents, the day-to-day responsibility for transmission of such documents, therefore potentially jeopardizing our national security.
One has to ask, based on the FBI directors’ report, if Hillary Clinton is fit physically and mentally to be President. By Comey standards she may not be prosecuted but she is not innocent. Hillary is not too big to fail nor is she too big not to go to jail.
