It’s time! Tonight is debate night. I probably won’t aggressively live-blog the whole thing, but I’ll probably make some comments as things develop.
Here’s something The Donald should hang around Her Imperial Majesty’s neck like the political anvil it is: President Obama, it turns out, knew about her private, unsecured email server all along – and used a pseudonym to send emails to that server, deliberately obfuscating his identity to evade security. Excerpt:
That Barack Obama communicated in 2012—under a redacted pseudonym—with Hillary Clinton on the then secretary of State’s permeable home-brew email server and then claimed he did not know of that server’s existence until it was reported in the press in 2014 is far more than the usual politician’s prevarication.
Since the fish rots from the top—and in this case it stinks to high heaven—the surfacing of this particular presidential lie calls to question the entire FBI inquiry into the Clinton server, an investigation whose credibility was paper thin in the first place and has now completely vanished.
It’s time to ask that age-old question: “What did the president know and when did he know it?”
That we do know (as of this Friday’s dump) that one of Clinton’s own IT workers referred to her then just-announced 60-day email retention policy (who does that?) as “Hillary’s coverup operation” almost (but not completely) tells the story in those three quoted words. Even though they say it’s not the crime, but the coverup, in this case, it’s both.
So, how can this help The Donald in tonight’s debate? Well, it’s another arrow in his quiver – one of many – and like a whole bunch of other arrows, it’s marked “Corruption.” Her Imperial Majesty has repeatedly demonstrated callous disregard for security procedures, and that’s one of the main reasons that The Donald is pulling ahead of Her Highness in some key polls.
In a few hours, we’ll see.
