For John, BLUF: Why can't these folks just be quiet? Nothing to see here; just move along.
Bill Clinton is accusing the FBI director of serving up “the biggest load of bull I’ve ever heard” — marking the first significant public comments from the husband of the Democratic nominee on the scandal that’s plagued his wife’s campaign for over a year.I would think the Democratic Presidential Campaign would accept what they got, pocket it, and walk away. Apparently not.
“First of all, the FBI director said, when he testified before Congress, he had to amend his previous day’s statement that she had never received any emails marked classified,” Clinton told journalists at an Asian American Journalists Association meeting in Las Vegas on Friday, making a strong defense for Hillary Clinton.
He added, “They saw two little notes with a ‘C’ on it — this is the biggest load of bull I’ve ever heard — that were about telephone calls that she needed to make. The State Department typically puts a little ‘C’ on it to discourage people from discussing it in public in the event the secretary of state, whoever it is, doesn’t make a telephone call. Does that sound threatening to the national security to you?”
So, is this because they feel that Director Comey's comments are hurting Ms Clinton or is this because they just don't take criticism well, or is it because he is trying to distract attention from Ms Clinton's continuing dissimination and false reports.
Or, do they feel they need to discredit Director Comey before he turns on them in October? That would be a bit paranoid, wouldn't it?
Hat tip to the Drudge Report.
