No, Hillary Clinton, It Is Not All Partisan Politics

August 18, 2015

I will be the first to say that Bill and Hillary Clinton have endured more than their fair share of partisan attacks. None rises higher on the stink pile than the witch hunt conducted by Ken Starr.   Though a close second would be the partisan over-reach among some Republicans concerning Benghazi.

So one can see how the Clintons might think the same rhetoric about everything being partisan could have some justification when it comes to the latest problem to befall them.   But in reality everything is not partisan when it comes to the needed investigations into the actions of Hillary Clinton concerning the private email server she set up during her time as Secretary of Sate and the messages she received and those she deleted.

There are many Democrats and good-government types—I can list myself as a member of each camp—who are troubled with the email server mess that has dominated Hillary’s past months on the campaign trial. There is no reason to think this matter is going to go away anytime soon. In fact, this matter will be front and center in 2016 during the general election.

This weekend Hillary was quoted as saying about this email mess that “I won’t pretend this is anything other than what it is: the same old partisan games we’ve seen so many times before.”

But that is not the case. And Hillary knows it.   Furthermore those among her supporters who fail to understand this is not partisan are just not playing with a full dose of common-sense, either.

The ones who are making this Clinton email mess into a day-after-day headline are not partisan folks.

They include the FBI who are now undertaking a counterintelligence investigation. They are two U.S. inspectors general for the state department and intelligence community who are also knee-deep into their respective investigations.

Hillary Clinton is certainly free to spin this all as a partisan affair but the facts she dodges are clear for the rest of us to see.
