Hillary Clinton Exonerated

January 12, 2020

Given the facts of the matter regarding the Department of Justice looking into the Clinton Foundation, as well as Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, those who followed this story felt sure of the outcome.   There was nothing but partisan smoke.  We all knew that.

But for those who kneel, bow, and bend over for Donald Trump and embarrass themselves–and their communities–by attending  Trump rallies to rant and shout about Hillary Clinton will not have the capacity to grasp the outcome.

For the rest here is the story from Vanity Fair.

Despite Republicans’ long insistence on Clinton’s wrongdoing—and Trump’s favorite “lock her up” rallying cry—the fact that the Huber investigation has reportedly been a bust doesn’t seem to come as much surprise to those inside the Justice Department itself. Senior Justice officials cited by the Post said that the investigation had largely been viewed as little more than a way to appease Trump and his Republican allies, and officials expected the inquiry was “unlikely to lead to anything of significance.” “We didn’t expect much of it, and neither did [Huber],” one source told the Post. “And as time went on, a lot of people just forgot about it.”

The news of the DOJ’s fruitless investigation comes just a few months after the State Department completed its own investigation into Clinton’s emails and use of a private server, which found that while 38 individuals did commit 91 security violations in emails sent to or from the private server, ultimately the server largely wasn’t used for transmitting classified information. “While there were some instances of classified information being inappropriately introduced into an unclassified system in furtherance of expedience, by and large, the individuals interviewed were aware of security policies and did their best to implement them in their operations,” a report on the investigation said. “There was no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information.” Of course, Clinton being cleared of wrongdoing by Trump’s own executive branch isn’t about to stop the president from bashing Hillary nonetheless. (Never mind the fact that six of Trump’s own associates have been convicted of crimes, or that private email use has reportedly been rampant throughout the Trump administration.) Less than an hour after the Post report came out, Trump was back on the campaign trail attacking Hillary, repeating his favorite 2016 talking points to a crowd of supporters—Clinton’s innocence be damned. “Crooked Hillary—you should lock her up, I’ll tell you,” Trump told supporters.
