DELETED AND PURGED

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

The po­lit­i­cal realm is once again quak­ing with more of­fi­cial re­leases of Hil­lary Clin­ton’s old State Dept. emails. The phe­nom­e­non brings out the fangs — or at least the in­credulity — of the Repub­li­can Na­tional Com­mit­tee.

“These emails show Hil­lary Clin­ton ex­posed even more clas­si­fied in­for­ma­tion on her se­cret server than pre­vi­ously known,” pro­claims chair­man Reince Priebus. “On hun­dreds of oc­ca­sions, Hil­lary Clin­ton’s reck­less at­tempt to skirt trans­parency laws put sen­si­tive in­for­ma­tion and our na­tional se­cu­rity at risk. With the FBI con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate, Hil­lary Clin­ton’s grow­ing email scan­dal shows she can­not be trusted with the White House.”

There is dot-con­nect­ing to be had, though. Na­tional Jour­nal colum­nist Ron Fournier asks in a terse tweet: “Re­mem­ber, these are the emails HRC wanted us to read. What didn’t she want dis­closed via an unau­tho­rized pri­vate server, deleted and purged?”

Note­wor­thy ques­tion, and on par with The At­lantic’s se­nior po­lit­i­cal editor, Yoni Appelbaum, who won­ders why the afore­men­tioned Joe Bi­den seems so con­fi­dent these days. “There’s one in­trigu­ing the­ory that has so far gar­nered lit­tle at­ten­tion: What if Bi­den knows some­thing about Demo­cratic fron­trun­ner Hil­lary Clin­ton that the rest of us don’t?” the editor asks.
