“The steady drip, drip, drip about Hillary Clinton’s too-cozy relationships with big-time donors to the Clinton Foundation while she was secretary of state continued unabated this week.” Thus starts a Boston Herald editorial.I wouldn't have minded if Hillary essentially blew off the job of SecState in favor of the doing her own thing; I'm sure the perennial bureaucracy at State would have continued the work, probably even better than with her at the wheel (it wasn't that high a bar), but the fact that she used it for personal gain is inexcusable.

This is the week, in short, that we found out that the infamous server was designed to hide that Mrs. Clinton for three years served as the U.S. Secretary of the Clinton Foundation.”

In the end, whether these people received any direct favors may prove nearly impossible to establish, but that’s not really the question. It would be a foolish politician indeed who would ever draw up a document saying that if you give millions to their family’s foundation they’ll do you this or that favor using the power of their office. The Clintons may be many things, but they’re not that stupid or they’d never have risen as high as they have. There’s also a standing defense available to them by simply saying that the favorable action was one which they were already considering anyway and they’d have done it with or without some particular meeting or donation.Clinton Global Initiative Moderator Describes Group’s Events As ‘Creepy,’ ‘Disgusting,’ ‘Gross’
But when it comes to earning the trust of the American voters, such verbal gymnastics aren’t really where we draw the line. Don’t come around peeing on our legs and then tell us it’s raining.

Shows knowledge of guilt. Prosecutors want until Sept. 19 to decide whether to retry McDonnell So what does this have to do with Hillary?

Ann Althouse asks Did the Alt-Right play its big day right? How can you know; no one even seems to know who the Alt right are; just more straw men? Sorry, Hillary: Trump’s policies are clearly better for blacks. It's not that high a bar. Clinton faces decision in Trump attack strategy. Trying to find the right lie.
