Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton finally broke her silence on the bombshell filing by Special Counsel John Durham and she sounds nervous. Hillary denied the story and tried to blame Trump and Fox News saying they are trying to distract from Trump’s ‘misdeeds.’
What Hillary will soon learn the hard way is that it doesn’t matter if what her team did was legal. The Durham filings and other evidence show a coordinated campaign meant to damage Trump politically. Whether the smear job extended into criminal behavior or whether official government resources were abused for it we will find out, but it doesn’t really matter.
What matters is that the veil has been lifted. Anyone can connect the dots between Durham’s filings, Hillary and Jake Sullivan’s texts, the media reporting on the illegal Carter Page FISA warrant, and the charge against Clinesmith on the warrant.
She would be better off admitting she is ruthless and orchestrated or played a small part in the mother of all political smear jobs. Because she’s caught and the longer she waits to come clean, the easier this turns into not the political dirty trick of the century, which some may respect, but the scandal of the century all will denounce.
Hillary said “Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones. So it’s a day that ends in Y. The more his misdeeds are exposed, the more they lie.
“For those interested in reality, here’s a good debunking of their latest nonsense.
Kevin McCarthy said: “Special Counsel John Durham’s continued investigation into the Russia hoax is essential to getting to the truth and protecting our democracy, and because he has already uncovered several troubling findings.
“It’s clear that Congress must exercise its oversight responsibilities as well.
“Democrats and legacy media may want to sweep this alarming report under the rug.
“But if House Republicans earn the majority, we will use our oversight tools to determine whether federal funds were used.
“Whether federal office-holders abused their power.
“And investigate other disturbing elements of this spying scheme to ensure nothing like it ever happens again.
Republican Study Committee Chair Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana said:
“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire and if the involvement of the Biden campaign, his national security advisor Jake Sullivan, and others in the secret surveillance of President Trump is as it appears, this is a five-alarm blaze..
“Nixon spied on a political committee; Democrats spied on the duly-elected President.
“They aren’t in the same ballpark and Congress needs to act accordingly.”
Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones. So it’s a day that ends in Y.
The more his misdeeds are exposed, the more they lie.
