What scandal? Clinton downplays email controversy as petty politics; promises transparency

by FOXNews.com  |  published on August 15, 2015

Hillary Clinton defended her handling of the 2012 Benghazi attacks and her use of a private email server as secretary of state, dismissing the controversies as “partisan games” in a speech in Iowa on Friday.

“They’ll try to tell you it’s about Benghazi, but it’s not,” Clinton said, pointing to Republican-led congressional inquiries that she said had “debunked all the conspiracy theories.”

“It’s not about emails or servers either. It’s about politics,” she said.

    The Queen Bee, has always been controversial … she and Bill “Slick Willy” rubbed elbows with old commie Sal Alinsky (Rules for Radicals) and others like Bill Ayers and family and friends. It has been speculated that Hillary was part of a triangle with Bill and his girlfriends. Progressivism at its best …. or worst depending on which camp one comes from. I’m sure that old Bill’s life has been a living hell.

HOW Can We ‘Spect Any Better From His Wife???? Jim

    Hillary is a pro, when it comes to polirics. She is not for the people, but for those in power.

  • pete G

    This liar even sounds like Obama. How much more of this crap are the American people expected to put up with?

  • KDC

    Of course, that’s her ploy out of everything. Just make lite of it and pretend it’s not really all that important.

  • Dave In Arizona

    To Queen Hillary, a day without a new scandal is like a day without sunshine.

  • Frith

    The fact that she had a seperate server should suffice that she never wanted “transparancy.” For her to downplay this as “petty politics” is unconscionable in light that her server contained “classified” information. She was the Secretary of State and it was incument that she follow protocol to safeguard information related to the national security. For her it was mere “convenience,” never mind that her method might compromise national security. That she cannot or refused to follow protocol is indicative that she places herself above the law. The FBI needs to determine whether she has in fact broken the law, but she needed to have come clean a long time ago. Instead she and her people engaged in a coverup, delayed as long as possible, released screened emails of no consequence, destroyed possibly compromising emails and erased the server. These actions do not instill confidence in her judgment and decision process. EVEN if it turns out that she did not break the law or that she is somehow excused from the penalty because of her stupidity or ignorance or high stature, it should be sufficient to deep-6 her career. If she were anyone ordinary like the rest of us, she would be in prison so fast she wouldn’t hear the jail bar doors slam after her ass in in there. The mere appearance of wrongdoing should suffice, and if the American people are smart, they will do her in for once and all!

    Seeing her on TV waltzing around the Iowa State Fair, her buckteeth munching on corndog, looking every inch confident on the outside just tells me how far our nation has fallen, morally speaking. Hillary Rodham-Clinton is a disgusting, pathological, conniving, liar.

  • pete G

    What a joke this woman is transparency, like her black master. Some of you idiots will probably fall for it.

  • used_to_be_a_liberal

    So the Hilda-Beast promises transparency. If she is elected, this will be one promise that she will keep. However, she did not say who transparency would apply to, it certainly would not be her, her staff, her government. Transparency would apply to us, the people. We would be transparent whether we liked it or not. Picture this, the Hilda-Beast, standing on the White-House steps, her hair messed-up, like the snakes on Medusa’s Head, eyes bulging, finger pointing, wearing her infamous pant suit, and a pair of high-heeled Jack-Boots.
    Madame President??? I think Not.

  • Walt

    It’s typical of anyone in the Obama administration to lie and deny to the bitter end. If a member of the Republican party had done what Hillary has done, they would have been crucified and left to rot. However, Hillary thinks she’s above the law of the Constitution and she can get away with it. The question is, is she going to buy her way out, or is the FBI going to do the right thing and follow the law? Only time will tell…

  • Pam

    In Hillary’s own mind, she should not be running for a THIRD term as president! I’m old enough to remember: “you’re getting two for the price of one…we are CO-PRESIDENTS…” Every time I hear the name Clinton, in my mind I also hear the names Ken Starr and VINCE FOSTER. The Clintons are only better than Obama because their guiding principles are GREED AND AMBITION FOR POWER, whereas the destroyer-in-chief is seeking the total annihilation of the United States.
    In case you missed it, he is already talking “THIRD TERM” for himself. That is a huge RED FLAG. I am participating in the “2016 hope-fest”, but I will not be at all surprised when he refuses to leave office. He has spent the last two years fomenting hatred of the police and race riots in order to facilitate his declaration of Marshall Law and suspension of elections. JMHO

    Hitlary is one of the most evil bitches to ever go to Washington. Her and slick Willie have committed so many crimes that they would have to live to 500 years and spend it all in prison.

    Electing an arrogant, irreverent, foul mouthed liar because she may be female is Democrat stupid !http://theblacksphere.net/…/top-8-hillary-clinton-blue…/

  • Phyllis Schultz

    I’m sure she will be just as transparent as Obama has been, meaning not at all. If she was she was transparent she would be in prison by now.

    Hillary is not only trying to hide stuff, but she’s also shielding Obama too.

  • Kenyan Mocker

    As usual nothing will be done. A few will stomp around, make noise, ask for donations to help fight the battle. They’ll collect the money, have parties, build a better nest egg and we’ll end up with the same results. Send more money.

    • Mark Lahti

      I know that you are so right about that. I get so sick and tired of email lead lines that sound like promising venues to start or get some sort of action about all these issues. Then when you go there all it is about is another attempt to get more money from us. Every single one of these sites is like that. We gave, we signed petitions, we voted, and we even campaigned for these fools. What did it accomplish? Absolutely nothing. I was a believer in the system. I truly thought that we could make a difference by supporting the right side of the fight. All I got for all my efforts was disappointment and heartache. I am afraid that the only thing that will ultimately turn the fight around in our favor is an outright full revolution. We have a recourse within the constitution. We have a duty…no….a responsibility to stop this madness. Our founders made it clear that when the system of checks and balances goes out of whack and our country starts to run towards tyranny. We have the responsibility to take matters into our own hands and take our country back. The problem we have is that so many have become so complacent that motivating them to action may be nearly impossible. God help us all.

      • Kenyan Mocker

        Make one donation and the email and snail mail explodes with ways to “fight the man”.
        There have been two I have supported and seen results, Judicial Watch and The Heritage Foundation. The rest just take money then seem to fade into obscurity.

        • pete G

          2 years ago my wife and i put $50.00 each on our credit cards to an organization who said if they reached a certain amount of money they could almost guarantee they could have Obama impeached I never heard from them again until 14 Months later when they called me for another donation and i told them to go to hell. Be very careful, they convinced my wife and i that their organization could impeach Obama and we fell for it hook, line, and sinker. That was the only time we ever gave money to a Political organization, and i might add the last.

          • Kenyan Mocker

            It may be possible to impeach Obama. That is done by the House. But it takes the Senate to convict and that’s never going to happen.
            If the call again promise you’ll send money. Then burn up their time clock having them waste time calling you. Keep stalling them saying most likely next, week, month, etc. ….. eventually they stop calling.

          • pete G

            Thanks Kenyan i will do that.

          • omegaman

            I expected someone perfect like you to say something but, I only have one judge and it ain’t you.

    • carpkiller

      Isn’t that the truth. Send more money is half of my emails. You will not get your wanted results though.

  • jdbixii

    It’s about a dumb policy that put people in a country without a stable government, a very volatile situation, which never should have happened. That simple!

      But the brain dead, dead, illegals will vote for her anyway.

        I know! You’d be surprised at how people are still “for” Hellary!! I’ve talked to people who say “I know she lies and all, but I’m still voting for her.” HUH??????

    Once again we see the total lack of integrity of this lying, serial liar, anti American, anti Constitution and anti Military piece of scum.

  • Buzz

    That pix had to be doctored or a stand in; she is now ugly almost as bad as a mud fence; used to kind of attractive at least; of course boozing, being bi, lying and all the other things she is into age one too soon.

    • Gnowark

      No, you forgot, when you have as much practice being a lying two-faced b*tch, choosing which face to show is easy (for a few minutes).

    • Frith

      “kind of attractive”???

      Colonel Sanders Hillary “Special”:

      “Two small breasts, two plump thighs, two short legs and a left wing”.” Of course the head is so ugly it’s cut off and discarded.

  • Jimbo

    Yeah, like she and Bill were “poor”, when they left the White House. They feel our pain…

    • pete G

      That’s a pretty quick recovery i read were they are worth $156,000,000 now. That’s not counting the money in the Clinton foundation they received from Muslim nations. Put them both in jail, no country can’t afford people like these.

  • ItsJo

    Like Obama, who Taught “Rules For Radicals” to Acorn Thugs, YOU, wrote your thesis on your Marxist Mentor, Alinsky who wanted you to work for him, but instead Hillary opted to ‘join the team to take down Nixon. The supervisor of the group FIRED Hillary, for LYING & NOT FOLLOWING THE CONSTITUTION.

    • Buzz

      If one reads our Constitution, that no longer applies for we are a Corporation and the victims of same, lawyers and bankers cannot hold public office nor can they EVER be afilliated with the Communit party or said like…

      • Gnowark

        You are, of course, referring to the “missing” XIII amendment (before the 1865 AMEND XIII- slavery one see .lawfulpath.com/ref/13th-amend.shtml ). The “communist” part was only possible (word was found long before, but Marx is credited with its popularity), but I agree that the original XIII was intended (but removed in original amendments, resurfaced and.ratified by 12 of needed 13 states in 1810-1812 probably would have passed if not for crisis intervening – the War of 1812).

Coincidence or as more SH-IITE hits the fan over e-mail they are working out some ” compromise” about Shutting down the DOJ and FBI investigations before the NH and Iowa caucuses ???? Not a progressive anarchist Left wing Conspirarcy or nothing like that………….. but the DOJ does what the Pu$$y says…and the FBI works for LYNCH… SO…????….:0)

    • Frith

      PRISON. Not jail. PRISON.

        But only after some “WATER SPORTS” at GITMO just to get some TRUTH…

  • battue_you

    She’s been the center of so many scandals that it feels like business as usual to her. Zero integrity. Zero trustworthiness. Zero accomplishments.

      and 100% Lying SCUM BAG!!

    • 7papa7

      Yup. It is hard to believe that anyone could have their head so far up their butt that they can’t see what is going on. She is indeed a master deceiver, it is so intense she is even deceiving herself.

      • pete G

        Another narcissist i fear.

        • arturo smythe

          I’m sure she feels it is difficult to be “humble” when she is so far above us “commoners”…..Her backside needs to be in jail for numerous crimes. She is directly responsible for 4 Americans who died in Benghazi….and absolutely no remorse from her

        • 7papa7

          There is a good reason to fear, she is probably more dangerous than obama based on how many were murdered by the clintons and the fact she is unable to tell the truth.

  • Dudley DoRight.

    HITLER-ee for prison 2016.
