Hillary: I really do regret my e-mail server, mainly because I got caught

posted at 7:21 pm on January 27, 2016 by Ed Morrissey

Regrets — Hillary Clinton has a few, but they seem difficult to pin down these days. The editors of the Quad City Times tried to clarify whether or not Hillary’s previously expressed regret over her secret e-mail server still remained in effect. The previous night’s CNN townhall offered Hillary a chance to reiterate her earlier statement of regret for the secret e-mail system that hid her communications from Congress and the courts, but instead the former Secretary of State said she did nothing wrong. Well, which is it? the QCT editorial board asked.

Hillary is sorry … that she got caught:

QUAD-CITY TIMES EDITORIAL BOARD: So it was a mistake because of the reaction.

CLINTON: Yes.

BOARD: Not because it would have made sense to use a work email for work purposes?

CLINTON: It made sense – look, look – I know that this remains a subject of some interest, obviously. You’re asking me, they asked me last night. The facts have not changed.

Well, no they haven’t, but a lot more of them are coming to light. However, Hillary’s defenses of the e-mail system have evolved significantly since its first exposure almost a year ago. At that time, she insisted that the system had not had any classified material transmitted or stored in it. One thousand, three hundred redactions and counting later, she has had to fall back on Clintonian parsing on “markings,” which she in at least one instance ordered deliberately stripped in order to convert information from secure transmission to her unsecured and unauthorized e-mail.

Besides, the measure of regret can easily be seen in actions, not words. Hillary kept that server well past her time at State, but when the system got exposed, she refused to turn it over or give State the electronic records from it. Instead, she and her legal team deleted half of the e-mails on the system, claiming that they weren’t work related, and then only submitted printouts of the remaining e-mails rather than give investigators the archives in data form. Her team then attempted to wipe the server in order to hide the rest of the data and balked at coughing up the hardware until the FBI demanded it. All of that doesn’t just say “regret” — it speaks loudly to guilt.

The need to maintain an illusion that “all is well” is certainly understandable in a political sense, but it doesn’t make it believable. And when even Hillary Clinton can’t remember where she stands on the regret scale even with a large assist from Chris Cuomo, that goes straight to credibility, too.

For her efforts — if not for her performance — Hillary gets the Scotty P award:

Amazing to say the least. The misdirection, subterfuge and distorting of the truth becomes very apparent.What I find so hard to understand is Hillary Clinton is given time and time again the opportunity to just say I’m sorry, I should not have done it, I learned my lesson. This would NOT be an admission of guilt could not be used a court of law. Would raise her 20 points in the polls and make it a dead issue for ever. She just can’t bring her self to do it. To this day she still thinks she has done no wrong and can not understand why so many people are concerned about this character flaw in a possible future President.

Go Figure.

jpcpt03 on January 27, 2016 at 7:43 PM

Obama can’t pardon himself.

Failure to report mishandling of classified material is a felony. (See the Blackberry thread)

Classified material in an email chain with other than .gov addresses and no classified headers would be evidence of mishandling classified material.

Did Obama ever see an email with Clinton’s email address and classified material? If so, he should get 10 years.

The statute of limitations won’t have expired by the time he leaves office.

Odd, she says the opposite, and each situation is a criminal act.

Donald Trump to Hold Veterans Event During GOP Thursday Debate

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has released the first details about the veterans-benefit event he’s producing instead of attending the presidential debate arranged by Fox News and Google.

The 8.00 p.m. Thursday event will take place at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. The event will raise funds for veterans’ organizations.

Trump announced Tuesday evening that he would not participate in Thursday’s Fox News debate.

According to Washington Post reporter Robert Costa, Trump’s campaign says they have reached out to “all major networks” to carry the event live.

Lewandowski tonight says the campaign has invited “all major networks” to carry Trump’s Thursday event live

I’d like to file a complaint with the management of this here web site/blog. Can we please get some more competent trolls. We’re stuck with some critter named “Tlaloc”, who I think is a parrot because he keeps saying the same, tired things over and over and over again.

“You cannot prove it”

“That’s what you claim”

“She innocent because she has been indicted”

“Everything you say about her are lies”

“I know you are, but what am I”

“Bounce off me and stick to you”

“NA, NA, NA, NA. I’m not listening.”

HA would be much more enjoyable if the trolls had an ounce of rational thinking ability and could formulate a valid reason why HRC should not be charged with wholesale violations of the Federal Records Act, the Espionage Act, RICO, and probably a dozen other federal felonies. But, alas, we are saddled with “Stuck on Stupid”.

US District Court House, Washington, DC.

US Attorney: “Now MS Clinton, did you set up, or have some one set up on your behalf, a private email service under the name of “clintonemail.com”?

MS Clinton: “I do not remember”

US Attorney: “You don’t remember. That’s odd. On several occasions you have admitted on national news programs and in interviews that you had a private email service set up and you use it exclusively, because you said it was more convenient. Is that not true?”

MS Clinton: “I do not remember”

US Attorney: “Your Honor, the People would like to introduce into evidence exhibits #1 through #12, transcripts of MS Clinton admitting that she had a private email service set up on her behalf under the name of “clintonemail.com”.

MS Clinton: “I object.”

US Attorney: “You can’t object.”

MS Clinton: “Why not.”

US Attorney: “Because you are not a lawyer in the District of Columbia. You flunked the Bar Exam.”

MS Clinton: “I did not remember.”

US Attorney: “Let’s go on to the contents of the email server. MS Clinton, this stack of paper is the printed contents of the 30,000 plus emails that you had on your private email server. Is that not true.”

MS Clinton: “I do not remember.”

US Attorney: “Were you aware, at the time of setting up your private email server, that the Federal Records Act required you to conduct your official government business on approved government systems in order that a record of your correspondence could be archived?”

MS Clinton: “I do not remember.”

US Attorney: “MS Clinton, you must be friends with Tlaloc. You keep saying the same thing, over and over again.”

MS Clinton: “I do not remember anyone named Tlaloc.”

US Attorney: “Whatever. MS Clinton. Do you remember signing, on January 22nd, 2009, this Classified Information Nondisclosure Agreement, stating you would safeguard classified information and in failure to do so that you were subject to prosecution?”

MS Clinton: “I do not remember.”

US Attorney: “Your Honor, the People would like to introduce into evidence, exhibit #13, the Standard Form 312, Classified Information Nondisclosure Agreement, sigedn by Hillary Rodman Clinton, and dated 22 January 2009.”

MS Clinton: “I object.”

Judge: “MS Clinton, as you have been reminded, you cannot object. You failed the Bar exam.”

MS Clinton: “I forgot”

US Attorney: “MS Clinton, were you aware when you sent or received the 1,340 documents that had classified information within the body of the text, that you were in violation of the Espionage Act and that you were breaking the Classified Information Nondisclosure Agreement you had signed.”

MS Clinton: “I do not remember.”

US Attorney: “Your Honor, I would respectfully request that MS Clinton be referred for mental evaluation as she apparently cannot remember anything.”

Judge: “So ordered. Bailiff, take her into custody and have her transported to St Elizabeth’s Hospital for mental evaluation.”

MS Clinton: “Take your hands off me. Don’t you know who I am? I’m Queen Hillary!! Don’t you think it’s time for a woman President!!! I ain’t no ways tired. ARRRRRRRGH!!!”

I want Hillary in jail, but to place in prospective what may happen in this situation, know this from an old submarine sailor. A well connected Democratic congressman in 1943 released secret US submarine operating depth information in a news conference that directly caused the death of an estimated 800 submariners and loss of 10 subs during WWII; the Japanese, based on that info, reset their depth charges. Nothing happened to him until he was later caught up in corruption, convicted, but then pardoned by President Truman. So Hillary getting off wouldn’t be so unusual.
Disgusting then and now.

Don’t you worry about a thing, ziploc. Your beloved queen will probably never see the inside of a cell. Although considering the way she’s screwed over and spat upon the Intelligence community a cell might be the safest place for her.

That tediously repeated defense: “It wasn’t prohibited” (varying to “It was permitted”). More Clintonian word-slicing. What she’s saying is “I got away with it” without admitting that it was illegal and wrong.

The FBI is off ambushing and killing citizens on the highway, but they are afraid to slap the cuffs on this one demented old bag.

Without naming any names, and speaking STRICTLY hypothetically, can someone run for POTUS if they have a received a presidential pardon after committing s felony??

Please don’t mention any names in your reply.

Sadly yes. And in this country, with the right candidate, the majority of the media could be counted on never to mention the felonies or the pardon.

If a Democratic politician engages in a massive criminal conspiracy in the US, and no one will expose it, mention it or prosecute it did it really happen?

I think we can all predict Tialoc’s answer.

I note how you’ve phrased that – not disproven, just rejected.

Athos on January 11, 2016 at 4:07 PM

For me the two are synonymous.

Tlaloc on January 11, 2016 at 4:23 PM

Rejected=disproven. Accepted=proven.

Evidence is not germane to the issue at all.

They should ask HIllary more questions along the lines of:
“If indicted for your criminal activities regarding your emails will you quit your campaign to run for President?”

Meanwhile, the quintessential affirmative action monkey in chief directs a military branch whose chief of intelligence is not authorized to access “classified” information.

And, of course, we want this kind of “intelligent” governance to run health care and predict man made, er Christian White Middle Class Hunter Gatherer produced Global Warming, along with all the other crucial tax payer financed issues of our time [golfing, final four, vacations on private government 747’s, among dozens of others…].

A rancher with 11 kids is murdered by the FBI in OR while on the way to a grocery store and this witch is still campaigning and giving interviews. She guilty as sin, we all know it, she knows it and the media asking these stupid questions knows it. Does she even know what she’s saying anymore or just giving an answer with some words that mean nothing. The media needs to ask her who ‘permitted’ that private server, her boss, her husband, who? She said she didn’t know too much about tech stuff, but surely she’s heard of hacking and how easy it is for foreign govts to do. How is she still able to attract 275 people to attend a rally at a bowling alley?

Hey we are going to disagree on almost everything, but not even the DC democrats will argue she is an accomplished politician. She was married to one. She herself isn’t. She is politically one of the worst politicians of either side in the last 50 years. Warren has to be kicking herself right now – Biden already is.
