Wednesday, March 2, 2016 News on Not So Super Wednesday

Super Tuesday has come and gone, and the race has not changed substantially from the day before. After winning Minnesota, I fully expect Marco to demand that all other non-Trump candidates quit to give him a fair shot.

When asked by Congress about the status of the investigation into the private, insecure server used by Secretary of State Clinton to hide her emails from FOIA,FBI director James Comey said "I am closely involved with Clinton email investigation"
"I can't, congressman, as you know we don't talk about our investigations," Comey responded. "What I can assure you is that I am very close personally to that investigation to ensure that we have the resources we need, including people and technology, and that it's done the way the FBI tries to do all of it's work: independently, competently and promptly. That's our goal, and I'm confident that it's being done that way, but I can't give you any more details beyond that."
Rubbing salt in the wounds, Former RNC Chairman says Evidence Shows Hillary Clinton Never Qualified For Security Clearance
When Hillary Clinton started her career at the State Department, she was required to sign a “Classified Information Nondisclosure Agreement,” otherwise known as an SF-312, vowing to give back classified materials when she left the agency. Clinton signed that form in January 2009.

But if you look at the copy of the document that the State Department released, you will find something very jarring: No one from the State Department signed it.

Beneath Clinton’s signature, there is a box labeled “Acceptance” with the message: “The Undersigned Accepted This Agreement On Behalf of the United States Government.”
She also failed to fill out the paperwork on her exit:
Breitbart News obtained confirmation on State Department letterhead that Hillary Clinton did NOT sign a mandatory OF-109 “Separation Statement” when she left the State Department.

That statement would have required her to affirm that she had returned all classified materials in her possession. Clinton’s top aide Cheryl Mills also avoided signing a separation statement. Mills actually filed hers, but it was left completely blank.
Rules are for the little people, like David Petraeus. However, the Dept. gave Cheryl Mills a blank check to continue to hide the evidence: Kerry State Dept. extended clearance of Hillary crony Mills to give her time to trash Hillary's e-mails. But what does a Clinton do when the chips are down? Blame the people investigating the crime Clinton chief attacks State Dept. watchdog. She's nothing if not consistent at least in that respect. Now gay marriage? Whatever the polls say. From Hot Air:
To briefly summarize this. Democrats have been claiming for more than three months that a former Sen. Grassley staffer, Emilia DiSanto, who now works for the State Department’s Inspector General is leaking information back to Grassley. DiSanto denies it unequivocally and Grassley’s office claims Democrats know she’s not the source because they know who the source is from a prior briefing.
. . .
If I had to guess I’d say this sounds like Democrats laying groundwork in case the OIG unleashes a blistering report later in the campaign season. Nothing comes easier to Hillary and her team than blaming everything on a vast, right-wing conspiracy.
I can't tell if the Washington Post is happy or sad about this The Drudge Report posts more links about Hillary Clinton than anyone else — even Trump.
Part of this is that Clinton makes more news: the email server, the campaign and everything in between. There are still a slew of Republicans to talk about, but only two Democrats making headlines, so Clinton, as the front-runner, would naturally come up more often.

Part of it, too, is that Drudge unabashedly would prefer that Clinton not be our next president. He's responsible for unveiling the darkest part of Bill Clinton's presidency. It's safe to assume that part of the attention he lavishes on Hillary is a function of his hoping to be a dark part of her efforts, too.
Certainly the Post has been all Trump all the time lately, and very little of it flattering. But it is interesting how Drudge has become a power house on the right without much editorializing himself. Just link and let the articles tell their own story. And with that thought: Did Bill Clinton Break Voting Laws in Massachusetts? Is it even possible for a Democrat to break voting laws in Massachusetts?
