Hillary shrugs off question about whether she ‘wiped’ her server clean – ‘What, like with a cloth or something?’

by DAVID MARTOSKO | Daily Mail  |  published on August 19, 2015

A cocky Hillary Clinton on Tuesday shrugged off the questions swirling around materials culled from her private email account which the U.S. intelligence community has since classified as ‘top secret,’ making light of a reporter who asked if she had ‘wiped the server’ clean.

‘What, like with a cloth or something?’ Clinton chuckled? ‘Well, no. I don’t know how it works digitally at all.’

The contentious exchanges with reporters from CNN and Fox News came during a press conference following a town hall event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Forty years ago she was seen holding floppy disks up to the light.

  • Frith

    Hillary Rodham Clinton again is being evasive in the face of a serious matter involving national security. The very fact that she had that server should have been a violation, never mind that she used it for government correspondance. She obviously did not take her role as “Secreatary of State” very seriously and has been very careless and dismissive regarding national security matters. She wants to reside in the White House, but the Big House is likely where she should end up. But she has no worries. The Obamaites will make sure that she never sees prison, maybe a light sanction.

    If she weren’t so contemptible…that stupid crack MIGHT have been funny.

    Instead it shows her lack of concern for the fact that she was caught red-handed trying to hide e-mails, and failed in the first place to do what she KNOWS she was supposed to do regarding her government e-mails in the first place.

    The woman has NO concern for following rules or laws that she is of the opinion do not pertain to her. Therefore…she is DISQUALIFIED from running for the position of POTUS.

    But then there is the separate argument that is even MORE valid…she has no qualifications for the job to begin with.
    First “Lady” (not that she even resembles a lady to begin with): NOT a qualification.

    Senator with NO accomplishments or bills of true meaning offered up or passed during her sleepy 8 years: NOT a qualification.
    SoS that failed miserably in ever aspect of the job and brought the world an emboldened Putin and the tying together of terrorist groups to form ISIS: NOT a qualification.
    In fact, I question that she is even qualified to be a grandmother…but that is an issue for her family to deal with.

    Bye-bye Billary…you are on the way out! Go rent the movie “Groundhog Day”…it has parallels to your current campaign…’08 is coming back for one more playing on that screen known as your life!

  • kranvornip

    Hey Walt… That’s the whole point- she didn’t!!! There’s a good possibility that the whole Benghazi affair was caused by her sending secret info from an easily hacked e-mail server. Do you think she could dance her way out of that- that could be why shes so afraid to answer questions….has anyone thought about that? I still don’t understand one thing…. when any of the powerhouse “journalists” ask her a simple “YES” – “NO” question, and she refuses to answer it, why don’t they come down on her like the lying arrogant cow she is; … HEY LADY…ANSWER MY QUESTION.. Did you or did you not have those drives wiped clean? ANSWER ME !!! Just like Judge Judy says… “When it doesn’t make sense- it isn’t true”. When she can answer a simple Yes-No question, you know she’s lying.

  • myrnaJO

    Thinks she is “untouchable” – should go to jail !

    • Frith

      “GO TO JAIL! GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL! DO NOT PASS GO. DO NOT COLLECT$200!”

  • Richard Schwartz

    Ask me a direct question and you get a direct answer. Henry should have said answer the ******* question. Read between the lines

  • Seedman

    Hilly goat is so presidential, not!

  • Walt

    One of the questions I keep asking myself, If this woman can put out over 55,000 emails, where did she find the time to do the job she was hired for? Every press photo shows her texting on her cell phone. I guess we should be grateful she doesn’t drive a car!

  • Climax

    Seigel: In regards to Bush, well, we had Bush form 01-09, Clinton from 93-01, Daddy Bush 89-93, REgan 81-89, Carter 77-81, Ford 74-77, Ford 74-77, Nixon 69-74, JOhnson 63-69, Kennedy 61-63, Eisenhower 53-61, and Truman from 45 to 53. All were individuals who had strong points and weak points. Some were better than others but the common thing was that American’s put them in office. If we put a DA in office then we suffer the consequences. Blame goes around equally. What I don’t want in office is anyone that is or is suspected of being a criminal, tries to hide the fact that they are a criminal or does not meet the traditional qualifications of being POTUS.
    On your second paragraph, I am almost 69 and the same age as Hillary. and I am not the sharpest pencil in the box, but I know what things are. I may not know how to do it but I know what they are. For her to act all innocent is an insult to everyone. If anyone should know technology and what does what, where, and when she should because she has been using it for years. Now we have erased hard drives she had set up in a bathroom closet! She had her Blackberry and that of here staff destroyed, has had money from countries she visited while SOS make donations to the Clinton Foundation of which less than 5% goes to worthwhile causes other than the Clinton Bank account. She lied when she left office saying they were broke. This woman is a potential time bomb of insanity and thinks that nobody can see through her vale of deception and slight of hand. We don’t need a person that is suspected of any of this, not to mention the 60+ members of the Clinton Body Bag collection who were close them meeting strange and questionable deaths. These are facts that just don’t add up. She violated the essence of the laws, she broke protocol, she more than likely caused Americans to die and then has the audacity to say, “what difference does it make”. Do I want her fingers anywhere near the football, no way in hell for I would fear for the world if this complete failure of a woman were ever in charge of anything. She can’t even have a normal family much less normal relations with the world.

  • KDC

    What? Is Hillary really trying to “play” the dumb blonde? She’s such a phony. Don’t know who she is trying to kid.

    • Climax

      Deception and diversion are her tactics.

  • Walt

    I know this is lengthy, but it’s important and it’s worth the read, and it’s worth passing along.

    He
    is Edward “Ed” Mezvinsky, born January 17, 1937.
    Then
    you’ll probably say, “Who is Ed
    Mezvinsky?”

    Well, he is a former Democrat
    congressman who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district in the
    United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to
    1977.

    He
    sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided
    the
    fate of Richard Nixon.

    He was outspoken saying that Nixon was a
    crook and a disgrace to
    politics and the
    nation and should be Impeached.

    He and the Clintons were friends and very
    politically
    intertwined for many
    years.

    Ed Mezvinsky had an affair with NBC
    News reporter Marjorie Sue Margolies and later married her after his wife
    divorced him.

    In 1993, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, then a freshman
    Democrat in Congress, cast the deciding vote that got President Bill Clinton’s
    controversial tax package through the House of
    Representatives.

    In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and
    later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire
    fraud.

    Ed Mezvinsky
    embezzled more than $10 million dollars from people
    via both a Ponzi scheme and the notorious Nigerian e-mail
    scams.

    He was found guilty and sentenced to 80
    months in federal prison. (This really helped the many folks
    he embezzled money from!!! )

    After serving less than five years in
    federal prison, he was released in April 2008 and remains on federal
    probation.

    To this day, he still owes $9.4 million in
    restitution to his victims.
    (Hold your
    breaths)

    About now you are
    saying , “So what!”

    Well, this is Marc and Chelsea
    Mezvinsky.

    That’s right; Ed Mezvinsky is Chelsea
    Clinton’s father-in law.

    Now Marc and Chelsea are in their early
    thirties and purchased
    a
    10.5 million
    dollar NYC apartment
    (after being married
    in George Soros’ mansion).

    Has anyone heard mention of any of this in
    any of the media?

    If this guy was Jenna or Barbara Bush’s,
    or better yet, Sarah Palin’s daughter’s father-in- law, the news would be an
    everyday headline and every detail would be reported over and
    over.

    And yet say there are no double standards
    in political reporting.

    And people are already talking about
    “Hillarious” as our next
    President!

    And then there is possibly Chelsea for
    president in our future!
    (I can’t wait
    !!)

    The cycle never ends!

    Lying and corruption seem to make Democrat
    candidates more popular.

    • disqus_2HJyL9vcD3

      Great job Walt, we need to expose these cockroaches to the light of day every chance we get. Maybe then some of it will stick to these ‘Teflon traitors’.

      • Walt

        Thank you I really appreciate it. I can’t see Hillary getting away with the same thing General Petreaus was nailed to the cross for. Thanks again…

        • disqus_2HJyL9vcD3

          Right back at ya. Hope you’re right about Ms. “What difference does it make”, aka evil incarnate. But, with this “justice” system I’m not holding my breath. It both surprises and saddens me that so many in this country can’t see this witch for what she truly is.

    • KDC

      Thanks, it was worth reading. What a bunch, huh?

    • Climax

      We do have the Clinton Correctional Institution that I believe most of these individuals need to be sent to for minimum 50 year terms in orange suits. The problem is that all the news media is either controlled, is afraid of, or is bought off by this very group of criminals.

      • Walt

        I agree, but Slick Willie would probably hire some dude to tunnel her out like the last two idiots tried to do…

        • Frith

          Yeah, between “Slick” and “Trick” there is a way for them to get out of it. I have this dread that is exactly what is going to happen.

      • Frith

        The man in the White House will make sure that Hillary never sees any prison time. If she is actually sentenced when he is still in power, she will get a presidential pardon much like impromtu, never elected Gerry Ford gave to Tricky Dick.

    • mustang6984

      Interesting news. And it is definitely applicable to the Billary run. As in NO THANKS Billary!

    • Frith

      Now where is a Ed Mezvinsky when you need him now that a Dumbocrat has done arguably worse harm to this nation??????!

  • Patriot1955

    America is in big trouble because so many think she would be a good president. This worthless excuse for an American must be stopped.

  • Climax

    Dos America really need anyone that is either that stupid or ignorant, or just so full of herself that she things everyone else is either stupid or ignorant?

  • Tom M

    Typical Clinton strategy ignore it and it will go away,laugh and make jokes to cast doubt off yourself. Well Killary It’s not working this time people
    have enough of you Clintons and allowing our nations secrets to be viewed on
    your unsecured server is no laughing matter dumbo. For you to continue running for the highest office in the land is insane and anyone voting for you would have to be quite insane or mentally challenged.

    • Frith

      She’s being dismissive over this, calling it partisan politics. FBI is partisan? Isn’t this the same FBI under a DUMBOCRAT administration? It’s not the Republicans that are making this a serious matter. It is a serious matter in and of itself.

  • Dudley DoRight.

    Hitler-ee for prison

    • Climax

      Got the jail jumpsuit color wrong, it should be orange or if Sheriff Joe is around Pink!

      • Frith

        This must be a photo shot by a reporter, She was hauled out of the shower and taken down to the station for booking and just didn’t have time to do her hair or change her fugly blouse.

  • oldvinnie

    Maybe she is that stupid?

    • Tom M

      The Clinton’s have always believed they where above the law. Its high time they found out their s*** stinks too.

      • Frith

        She needs to go to PRISON. She’s no different than a criminal who believes that they somehow are justified in doing what they do.

    • Climax

      The we sure don’t need her as a POTUS!

    • Jerry Oxendine

      BLING! She *IS* that stupid, and it should surprise no one. Remember “What DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE” , her true feelings about Benghazi revealed, her lack of understanding of the significance of the results of her actions (and others’) on our foreign policy. How little the lives of the embassy staff meant to this self-aggrandizing twit with this, and her most recent flippant dismissal of the impact of her emails with statements about “wiping it with a cloth”. Any kid with a high school education and a bit of concern for the well-being of our beloved USA could’ve known not to risk even the slightest leak thru casual use of a private email server. At least, one with a modicum of OPSEC sense would know not to do such. And some of us want this broad to be “president”? *REALLY*????

  • Gnowark

    The nerve of a reporter asking if my former senator ever actually did something! She’s spent decades practicing pointing her finger everywhere else for all her and her husband’s, or huma abedin’s, or … ‘unintended’ consequences. She’s slicker’n owl sh–.

  • jdbixii

    What is the point of all of this? To find an incriminating communication that explains Benghazi? To find out whether the laws concerning the treatment of classified information were violated? Or, is it just a politically-motivated witch-hunt, pure (or impure) partisan politics, having no other purpose than to press an issue? The congress has not gone after the president, whose policies are what determine the actions of subordinates. Consistency with respect to law enforcement is not something of which this administration can be accused. Congress wastes a lot of taxpayer money simply investigating the abuses and violations of government employees, to say nothing of approving or allowing policies which are wasteful and counter-productive. It is tiresome.

    • Gnowark

      NO, Congress will bandy this about until the next “impeachable” act is leaked (Sec’y of State, or pResident, or …) while we allow them. That is how Wash DC works (or doesn’t work). HL Mencken was right (no politician) “ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.”

    • Climax

      Actually, I think America is waking up to the fact that the Clinton’s cannot be trusted and are corrupt to the core and we do not need them in the highest office of the land. If you have not been paying attention, this is not the only thing that she has done wrong. She has been a problem woman since her early days as far back as the Nixon Days. It is not a witch hunt, it is bring up the facts. Have you seen the list of over 60 people that were close to the Clinton’s or were set to provide evidence against or testify against the Clinton’s who died in mysterious ways, like shooting themselves and there is not gun around, no bullet, and the hole in their head would be impossible to make by yourself, or airplanes suddenly exploding in the air, and on and on and on. Where does the Clinton Foundation get off on taking money from Foreign Governments, a clear violation of the law, as she was SOS visiting those nations? The list just gets longer and longer. Bill bold faced lied to Congress AND the American public when he said he did not have sex with that woman. But then again is a BJ not having sex, did he redefine that? Why was he having sex with different woman, and even today with the Energizer? Because he is not being given any by Hillary, why? There are plenty of rumors she is Gay. She is reportedly the most nasty First Lady in history according to the Secret Service and Military that served her. She breaks protocol in a blink. There has to be others either Democratic, Republican, or Independent who far exceed her qualifications and trustworthiness. Just because she can throw money at the POTUS run does not mean she can BUY the position with other peoples money.

  • I Seigel

    Would you guess that she probably didn’t PERSONALLY erase her emails or wipe the hard drive? Don’t you think it’s remotely possible that she has people that do that sort of thing for her? And furthermore, as with the Reagan/North cabal, I would guess her assistants might not have told her everything, so as to give her “plausible deniability”.

    • Climax

      If she is that big of an idiot then do we want her in the highest office of the land?

      • I Seigel

        We had Bush II for 8 years. He was much more of an idiot. And much more dangerous, too, because he was so easily manipulated. But he was fun to have a beer with, I guess.

        Besides, there are probably millions of other Americans of her age that don’t understand the intricacies of email servers and computer networking either. She probably has at least one IT person on her staff to do that kind of work. Didn’t she say just the other day that she started a Twitter account? Not too many people her age get into Twitter, I would venture to say. Many many people a lot younger than her won’t do Twitter or Facebook or LinkedIn or any of the social media either.

        • Climax

          In regards to Bush, well, we had Bush form 01-09, Clinton from 93-01, Daddy Bush 89-93, REgan 81-89, Carter 77-81, Ford 74-77, Ford 74-77, Nixon 69-74, JOhnson 63-69, Kennedy 61-63, Eisenhower 53-61, and Truman from 45 to 53.

      She has legions of people that will do her bidding. She herself won’t touch anything, but she can have it done.

  • GetTheFactsFirst

    Arrogant and condescending, isn’t she?

    • Gnowark

      She’s just a politician, but I’m simply repeating you.

      • Climax

        No, I would say she is more of a B-I-T-C-H.
