[after completely debunking Stephen Glass's New Republic article]That's how I think about Hillary's initial press conference at the United Nations to address the email issue. Here's Jonah Goldberg:
Adam Penenberg: But there is one thing in this story that checks out.
Kambiz Foroohar: What's that?
Adam Penenberg: There does appear to be a state in the union named Nevada.
Over a year ago, Clinton held a press conference at the United Nations intended to put the whole controversy to rest. Nearly every significant statement she made was a lie.What's the clincher? Hillary refused to cooperate with the State Department IG investigation:
Then again, if Clinton did nothing wrong, she also would have talked to the inspector general, as every other relevant secretary of state did. And she would have happily told her team to cooperate with the IG to clear the air. They all refused. I wonder why.Maybe it's just me (cheerfully biased!) and my buddies at the Politics sub-reddit, but I really don't see how Hillary escapes an indictment recommendation from the FBI. There are just so many aspects to this controversy that scream violation of either the Federal Records Act or the laws governing classified information. In fact, I'm placing 50-50 odds that she'll refuse to testify for the FBI and fall into the perjury trap. You'd better believe her lawyers and PR people are sitting in a room, trying to figure out how to spin it. Maybe James Comey voted for Reagan once.
Just kidding. Of course I don’t wonder why. From the earliest days of this scandal — and it is a scandal — Clinton has lied.
