Email controversy dogs Clinton to convention

by Katie Bo Williams | The Hill  |  published on July 24, 2016

The biggest impediment to Hillary Clinton’s run for the White House is the controversy that has dogged her presidential campaign from the start: her use of a private email server as secretary of State.

Republicans have hammered Clinton over the issue, and the persistence has taken a terrible toll on her poll numbers.

Only 28 percent of Americans view her as honest, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll earlier this month. Sixty-seven percent view her as untrustworthy, a 5-point spike since just last month. That’s a big change from the spring of 2015, when only 45 percent of Americans judged her as untrustworthy.

At last week’s Republican National Convention, speaker after speaker used time on stage to rip into Clinton’s trust numbers, signaling that the general election battle between her and Republican nominee Donald Trump will be a war of attrition filled with negative attacks.

Clinton could, of course, be in an even worse position when it comes to her email.

    Hillary is likely the most corrupt person to be nominated for the presidency by a political party. We now know that she and her plants in the Democrat Party rigged the primaries to keep Bernie Sanders from winning.

    Hillary Clinton reminds me of the games you see at carnivals and county fairs. For a buck you can get the chance to walk away with a great prize. The average game player doesn’t realize the “games of skill” are rigged to make it almost impossible for anyone but the game’s owner to win.

    Hillary Clinton has a corrupt party apparatus backing her. There is nothing to crooked or dishonest for them. They will do whatever it takes to put this corrupt and incompetent politician into power.

    The most horrific act of hillary Benghazi clinton’s time as secretary of state was allowing four Americans who were calling for help from Benghazi to be murdered. But then there is a very long list of people who were involved with the clintons who died. Check the “Clintons death toll documentary” on line.


    The evidence of Crooked Shrillary mounts and the collateral damage spreads, Kaine the Krooked is in a spot where he too may be getting tax paid meals at the federally financed Gray Bar Hotel a stay for which many will happily pay……Halfast B’Ob the “unknown” should be making plans to take his Soros bonus and head for his refuge in the middle east……..Voting for the Jackass Party does bear out the fact that “liberalism is a mental disorder.”

    The demonrat platform is based on lies, what sane person would ever believe them much less vote for one of these lying snakes..

    If there is anything where lying is needed you can depend on Hillary Clinton to be right there to lend a hand. Obama’s lies were nothing compared to hers. She is the Queen of lies and will bring that to the White House if elected along with Bill Clinton who will be her assistant liar in chief.
