It was widely reported last week that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has downgraded from private jet travel to flying on a commercial airliner. Just like during the campaign when Madam Hillary took a commercial flight, I’m highly suspicious of the optics and timing here; as we all should be anytime the Clinton’s are involved.
No sooner does USA Today run a headline article that now Vice President Pence and then Governor of Indiana used his private AOL email account for some State of Indiana Official Business. Funny thing happened, SOS Clinton just happened to be photographed staring at that USA Today the same day that headline appeared while seated on that commercial airliner.
The difference here is that for then Governor Pence, his use of an AOL email account to conduct Official Business was legal and all emails were properly archived. Unlike then-SOS Clinton, who was most likely running the private email server to hide her pay to play activities and possibly violating the US Constitution’s Foreign Emoluments Clause?
From 41,000 feet it’s pretty clear that nothing ever happens by accident with the Clintons. I’m waiting to see who can tie the chance photo-taker and publisher back to the Clintons.
