Suggested title: Judge Orders Investigation Of Lawyers That Allegedly Deleted Thousands Of Clinton Emails
Subheading: Is the plot finally about to thicken on Clinton’s outrageous behavior?
Hillary Clinton is still out and about wondering ‘What Happened.’ In fact, she’s gone ahead and written a book of the same name that painfully explains it in excessive detail.
The failed presidential candidate simply can’t wrap her head around the fact that she was on the wrong end of the most monumental upset in modern political history.
As such, she’s compiled dozens of reasons for why she lost, and she rattles them off like talking points anytime a microphone or camera is in her face.
It’s truly painful to watch, and it’s alarming to think about the fact that someone with such a lack of self awareness and accountability came so close to the White House.
While going through her laundry list of reasons, Clinton briefly acknowledges her email scandal. In her mind, it was just a little whoopsie that she should’ve handled differently.
In the real world, it’s a much bigger deal than just a whoopsie. Beyond being blatantly irresponsible and careless, the email scandal opened up one of the biggest problems that Clinton refuses to face: people don’t trust her.
While the email scandal seems to be a thing of the past now that she’s permanently relegated to the private sector, there are folks that are still pushing for it to be investigated even further.
The Daily Wire shares the news on some recent progress on that front.
A Circuit Court judge in Maryland has ordered the state bar to open investigations into three lawyers who allegedly deleted thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Overruling lawyers representing the state, Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. said the complaints lodged against top Clinton lawyers David E. Kendall, Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson could not be dismissed as frivolous.
The case was brought forth by lawyer Ty Clevenger, who has been tirelessly pursuing sanctions against Clinton and her legal team.
Clevenger contends that the lawyers helped Clinton destroy emails from a secret server the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee kept in her New York home. While Hillary turned over thousands of emails, she also destroyed some 33,000, saying they were private and not related to her work as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State.
“My thesis is: If you are a politically prominent attorney, you are held to a different standard,” Clevenger said after the hearing, according to the The Baltimore Sun. “I’ve seen this in Texas, California … I chose this case because I knew people would pay attention.”
Clevenger is spot on. More people should be paying attention to this, and we can only hope that his dogged efforts haven’t been in vain.
Judge Harris was having none of Rhode’s argument. “I just think this is a rather easy decision at this point,” he said. “The court is ordering bar counsel to investigate.”
Clinton this past weekend acknowledged mistakes in handling her official government email account. “The most important of the mistakes I made was using personal email,” she acknowledged in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning ahead of a book launch.
“I said it before, I’ll say it again, that was my responsibility. It was presented in such a negative way, and I never could get out from under it and it never stopped,” Mrs. Clinton said, once again blaming others for her woes.
For most observers, the fact that Clinton lost out on the election is enough punishment for her. While that’s certainly one way of looking at it, that doesn’t take away the stench of the scandal or subsequent ‘investigation.’
Quite simply, a less prominent person without Clinton’s connections would at a minimum have had their political careers ruined, and they may have even wound up in jail for such outrageous carelessness.
The fact that Clinton walked away with barely a slap on the wrist and was allowed to pursue the highest office in the land without issue is just mind-boggling.
That’s done and in the books, and we can’t go back and change it.
However, we can go back and declare beyond a shadow of a doubt that no one is above the law.
Clevenger’s case is a step in the right direction towards making that happen, and it certainly doesn’t sound like he’ll be giving up on it anytime soon.
